6 Sure Signs That You’re Arguing With A Psychopath

You will notice whenever you are going to place your opinion before a psychopath, he/she will immediately block your conversation flow, to redirect your attention to them once again. This lets them have superiority over you in all aspects.

6. The ultimate silent treatment

When all of the above tricks with you fails, a psychopath will wield his/her ultimate power-tool – the silent treatment. It is a form of emotional abuse, in which the psychopath severs all sorts of communication with the other person, with an intention to punish and evoke an emotional reaction in the person.

The silent treatment can mean a reduced day to day communication with you, avoiding taking accountability for their mistakes. Often times this silent treatment demands a proper apology which once asked by you, will establish their dominance and validate their exaggerated superiority.

The only way to get rid of these mind games of psychopaths is to disengage.

The more time you waste in stroking their vulnerable ego, the more will you contribute to degrading your own mental health. They deserve none of your valuable time or energy. The worst mistake you can do while arguing with a psychopath is to try to make them conceptualise your opinions. They lack the ability to put themselves in other’s shoes because they feel snug in their grandiose stature.
