Hard to See Him for What He is – Even Psychologists Are Fooled

“Victims are harmed psychologically, emotionally, physically, financially, and socially.  The devastation can be far reaching.”

“A psychologist, in writing a psychopath’s evaluation described, how difficult it is to comprehend and reconcile the reality of the psychopath with his positive persona.”

 

“It is rare that victims actually recognize what is happening to them until it is too late.  Because of this, many victims never fully understand the full complexity of the situation.  Frequently, they are so entangled in the web of confusion the psychopath has managed to spin, that seeing the psychopath for what he or she is, rather than how he or she portrays himself, may be quite difficult.”

“It is not unusual for the victims of psychopaths to question their sanity and self worth.  This is often exacerbated by the psychopathic individual looking the victim in the eye and denying that events they both experienced together happened.”

“It is likely that the psychopath has spent so much time manipulating the victim’s reality that the victim cannot always distinguish fact from fiction.”

“The psychologist reported that, following an evaluation of a parent with psychopathic features, she had had difficulty reconciling the positive persona superficially presented by the psychopath with the contradictory facts she had gathered during the forensic evaluation.”
