There is a consensus that most people are good. Unfortunately, they are a few bad apples in the proverbial barrel of life. Among those sick people is a particular kind of evil. These individuals showcase a unique set of traits that make up a dangerous mix of intelligence, apathy, and excessive self-promotion. These people actively seek to destroy, conquer and dominate others. They may appear to be friendly at first, but their true colors eventually show. They are fair-weather friends, and you should view them as a threat at all costs.
Here are twelve warning signs that should alert you of their intention, so you can take necessary steps on permanently removing these evil narcissists out of your life.
Signs Someone in Your Life Is Evil:
1. THEY LIKE TO DENY REALITY.
They live in denial. Reality is different in their mind. Accepting the truth is against their nature.
2. THEY TWIST THE FACTS.
Manipulating the facts of any given situation is their forte. Narcissists have to make things all about them. Twisting the truth into something terrible is how they hurt those around them.
3. THEY CHOOSE TO WITHHOLD INFORMATION.
Withholding information, or lying by omission is a form of controlling situations. These ill intentions are design to comprise the integrity of another person, team or organization in some cases. Leaving out the most important parts of a document to make others look bad during a group presentation is one example of an evil person. Beware of these types of individuals. They seek to destroy you for their benefit.
4. THEY MISLEAD PEOPLE.
Making you believe in the opposite of what occurred is how they manipulate. If the situation is already bad, they seek to make it worse for you. Winning against these individuals at their level is futile.
5. THEY DO NOT FEEL BAD ABOUT THE THINGS THEY DO.
Evil people do not feel remorse for what they are doing when manipulating a situation for their benefit. Their goal is to seek, destroy and dominate by step on over anyone in their way. This is the mantra of a Narcissist. The more disturbing individuals with this trait have borderline personality disorders. If they seek to hurt you, they do not care how it is done as long as their goal is achieved. They experience schadenfreude–taking pleasure in someone else’s pain.
6. THEY LIE A LOT.
Lying is easy for them. These silver-tongued sociopaths make it their business to lie about everything. Pathological liars fall in the same category. This trait makes these people dangerous to be around, due to their inability to tell the truth and their apathetic stance in life other than to cause pain. Compulsive lying is a game to them, and the more elaborate the lie, the more pleasure they get in fooling those around them.
7. THEY REFUSE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS.
Assume responsibility for their actions is not part of an evil person’s moral code. Of course, their moral compass has long been dismantled and non-existent. Instead, blaming others for the mistake, these sick people made themselves is what they rather do. Shifting the blame from themselves, they believe, puts them in a better light. An apology is not in their vocabulary, so don’t expect one from these types of people.
8. THEY ARE MANIPULATORS.
Being that their motive is to control situations and bend them to their favor means these people are masters of manipulation. Given the opportunity, a careful, systematic plan to take over starts to ensue. Be mindful of the fact that, you are not a priority to them but an obstruction to their goal.
9. THEY ARE FAIR-WEATHER FRIENDS.
Contrary to the word friend, it is the exact opposite of the meaning of friendship. Evil people come in different forms. One of them is the role acquaintance. A fair-weather friend only appears when things are going well with your life. The moment things turn sour, they are nowhere.
10. THEY STEAL YOUR TIME.
If you ever notice that you lose track of time often while around certain people, it might have been done on purpose to slow you down. A narcissist does not like to see others do better than themselves. One way to make sure you fail is by stealing your precious time. Don’t let these evil manipulators know your deadline dates on important projects or important family events. They seek to ruin your chances at getting promotions or isolate you from your loved ones.
11. THEY LEAD DOUBLE LIVES.
Much like the antagonist of a movie, evil people like sociopaths are not forthright when it comes to their past. Chances are they have manipulated someone else the same way as they are messing with you. Misleading others by lying about how they live their lives, is a common trait in these evil people. Painting an idyllic version of their routine is how sociopaths lure others to them. Being vigilant of who you let into your friend circle is sage advice because the consequences can be dire.
12. THEY ARE CONTROL FREAKS.
It is common knowledge that narcissists are highly arrogant. This arrogance stems from how much control to have over others, which feeds their superiority complex. Even if are considered on equal ground, the need to be superior is prominent. You will notice the change in the way they speak to you. It will sound condescending, or borderline obnoxious. This behavior starts off subtle at the beginning of your relationship.
Learning to recognize those who want to hurt you is just as essential as knowing who your friends are. People who display the narcissistic traits do not care about anyone but themselves. The sooner you get these people out of your life, the better your life becomes. Regarding dealing with these sociopaths–never back down, never surrender, never give up!
