In the first part of this article, we had studied the main traits of the personality of psychopaths, and the key points of their behavior.
In a second, their mode of operation, as well as other considerations about secondary psychopaths and group behavior.
In this third and last part, we will study the means of defense that we can use to protect ourselves , and that everyone can put into practice in everyday life. But with some special rules for situations of chaos …
Rendezvous with the Devil
One of the main benefits that psychopaths profit from is that most people simply can not believe that such monsters exist. This inability to apprehend the predator’s mentality is partly due to ” popular morality “.
All societies promote a simplistic and idealistic form of morality through education and the various churches / institutions that preach platitudes such as: “All men are equal”, “There is a share of good in every man”, ” Everyone is special “, and other nonsense. Such ideals serve most often as a cover behind which the real machinations take place, without the crowd realizing and being moved by it.
The ” The first line of defense against psychopaths is therefore to recognize their existence . By doing this, we develop a psychological advantage. “A wise man is worth two,” as the saying goes. The fact that we are reinforced by this knowledge about predators will enable us to think more clearly and thus to identify them before they detect us. Once we accept the reality that predators literally populate our society, the next line of defense is to identify them . Because of their camouflage and deceit abilities, psychopaths are difficult to spot. They can deceive even professional psychologists and psychiatrists. It is therefore important to understand that everyone can be tricked. If you think that you are an exception, you are only making yourself even more vulnerable.
A psychopath is like a smoking brand. As soon as you can spot the smoke and extinguish the embers, at best it will be. After which it would be too late; Your house would already be on fire, and you would not be able to limit the damage or prevent its destruction. It is therefore important to learn to identify the characteristic traits of psychopathic personalities, and to recognize their modus operandi .
Where possible, do background checks and / or talk to the family and friends of the one you think is a psychopath. Most of these evildoers leave behind a long trail of destructions and sorrows, and will try to confuse the tracks. A lack of information about their past could be considered suspicious, To be likened to a long series of betrayals.
Another of their main defects is the lack of patience and the incredible energy they deploy to maintain their facade. Over time, they eventually drop their mask. Thus, one of the best methods of detecting psychopaths is waiting, the “Wait and see” dear to the Anglo-Saxons, followed by immediate action if necessary.
Once you identify a person as a psychopath, you will have two options: Attack or Flee . They deploy to maintain their facade. Over time, they eventually drop their mask.

What you should not do
It is vital to understand that empathy can in no way overcome the psychopath. In psychology, empathy is the ability to feel the emotions, feelings and experiences of another person, or to put oneself in one’s place. You can not change a psychopath. You can not straighten it; You will not be able to find in him an ounce of goodness, nor show him the way to God. You can not teach her love.
All these approaches are doomed to failure, because psychopaths will never understand such concepts, and they cure them. Even if they could lead you to believe that you moved them, in reality, your empathy exasperates them and far from admiring your compassion, They will despise you even more. While you are trying to “understand” the psychopath, it is already calculating the best way to cause you as much suffering as possible. We must develop a cold external attitude and consider them from afar. Do not take pity, do not feel sorry or sympathize with them.
This is the tragic error of pacifists and idealists on all sides. Even God can not change the devil; All he can do is thwart his plans and put him to death. That is how we will act when the time comes.
In a situation of chaos, prepare yourself mentally and materially to shoot in the pile; Or accept to die if you can not flee. No other solution, Is to be considered with a gang or a crowd on your heels . If you try to parley, they will kill you, rape your wives and children, and steal your reserves. If you try anything else in the hope of seducing them or coaxing them, you and your whole family will be there. Except possibly your wife, if she is pretty. But surely she’d rather be dead in case something happens …
As a rule, the only thing that can defeat a psychopath is a greater psychopath. However, if you think that there is no other remedy for you than to confront a psychopath, your only advantage will be the visceral fear of these evildoers being exposed as they are . They know from childhood that they are different from others. Their advantage lies in the fact that they know what they are, while the rest of the people ignore it. To expose a psychopath takes away its advantage and reveals to the world its inner rot. However, few people have the strength and intelligence to carry out such a task. Although the statistical distribution of genius and stupidity in psychopaths reflects that of the general population, A stupid psychopath can perfectly escape from an educated accuser and thwart his attempts.
Before you try to expose a psychopath or try to free yourself from it, you must be in a position of power. You will need to choose the right time and place. You will also have to inform the people around you so that they are ready to support you. This means creating a support group of family members or friends, or even joining a group. In an organizational context, this means having colleagues, managers, the legal department and the human resources department on your side before starting any procedure.
Chinese strategist Sun Tzu warned us of the danger of ” Attack an enemy who has no opportunity to flee. In the same way, it is better not to corner a psychopath in a dead end. In this case, the fight would be more vicious than most could bear. Instead, shake the risk of denunciation before him. For a psychopath, the thought that it could be unmasked at any time is exasperating, and most will abandon their maneuvers to go elsewhere to seek someone more ignorant or vulnerable than you.
In an organization, for example, you could exchange your silence about possible criminal or criminal activities against your tranquility. Having of course taken all the necessary assurances beforehand (you know, what we see in the films: USB key, disk and other hidden in a safe place and revealed in case …).
If you are the boss, propose silence on the activities of your psychopathic employee in exchange for his resignation and his departure away from home.
In a context of chaos, it would be the moment to make speak arms , without mood or discussion. Again, there is no possible arrangement with gang leaders or criminal groups in time of war. The slightest weakness, the least attempt to negotiate would cost you and your family’s lives. Propose silence on the activities of your psychopathic employee in exchange for his resignation and his departure away from home.
A safer and possibly easier strategy depending on the situation would be to flee. Once you have identified a person as being a psychopath, you will have to cut the bridges and get it out completely of your life. As part of a personal relationship, it could mean changing locks, changing phone numbers, blocking e-mail addresses, closing bank accounts, requesting a non-communication order, or relocating …
Do not let See your cards. In other words, do not reveal any information, and especially not your place of destination in case you have chosen to leave.
You could also warn the police or the justice, or at least threaten to do so. Often in movies, We can see the protagonists refuse at the outset to alert the police, while there was still time, to end in an inextricable and often fatal situation after things have dramatically degenerated. Do not make such an error. You’re not Rambo. If you think that the police can help you, then do not hesitate to contact her. In any case, it could be judicial evidence for later.
Take self-defense courses and practice weapons. If you think that the police can help you, then do not hesitate to contact her. In any case, it could be judicial evidence for later. Take self-defense courses and practice weapons. If you think that the police can help you, then do not hesitate to contact her. In any case, it could be judicial evidence for later. Take self-defense courses and practice weapons.
Thus ends our study on predators and psychopaths, hoping that she gave you some extra survival tools in anticipation of the not-so-distant day when the lights will go out. At the most you will be informed and conscious, at the most you will have the chance to pass the course.
So that the race of psychopaths will be extinguished and a new era for mankind will begin, free of all the waste that Had led to his loss …
