In our daily social interactions, we are bound to come across at least one person who we thought was our life savior while in contrast, he/she was the person sucking on our blood like a vampire. But only stealthily. You, me everyone has come across such a person. Fortunately, if you have not, you are lucky enough. These are people with a set of high-functioning manipulative techniques who are consciously making advances towards their agenda AKA, a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Their agenda is never simple. It is as complicated as it gets. However, sly and clever you get, you might often miss out on their lies, manipulation, and forgery.
A wolf in a sheep’s clothing is that person, who means to steal, adulterate information, and twist it around to his/her advantage at the psychological, emotional, economic, and social expense of other people around them. They are utterly fake individuals who lack honesty within themselves.
They believe that they are extremely smart and confident, doing the correct thing by putting themselves above everyone else. But the harsh truth is that they are ugly on the inside.
These people might surpass the attention of others to achieve their goals but like every other con-man, they do leave behind ‘red-flags’ that are more than subtle and sometimes loud enough to unveil their true colors.
Why the wolf wears the sheep’s clothing?
It is often easy to get the thin, almost invisible line, that separates right from wrong. And the wolves take advantage of this dilemma. These wolves get the truth twisted to such an extent that we fail to look at the real danger prowling around waiting to devour someone.
A sheep is a gullible, credulous, non-suspecting person who a wolf takes the disguise of. These wolves are sweet-mouthed crafters who know what good words to use, and how to use them. They will appreciate you, be kind and helpful, be loving and understanding, and extremely charming.
Don’t forget that this is a disguise they have carefully put on to reach your heart. Once they do, they will tear apart your flesh and demolish you in no time. Their mask is just to achieve their objectives because this mask is what you believe.
There are some precise, hair-splitting signs which give away their true intentions and you are to be aware of them so that you don’t end up being their victim.
Here Are 5 Signs That Someone Is A Wolf In Disguise
1. They empower themselves at the cost of pulling someone else down.
A wolf will use your decency as a stepping stone to reach where they want to. They are so self-centered that they only consider themselves and pay no heed to the collateral damage they cause to other people.
The best example is the topper in the class who steals your unique ideas and implements them in their own assignments and gets an outstanding grade. Of course, this person reaches the good books of the professor, just because of the charm he displays. And you are left blaming your fate!
2. Wolves are like sugarcoated candies.
If a wolf reveals their true persona, nobody will take their side. They will seem to be the sweetest and kindest person you have ever met. They will use this opportunity to read you well, mix with you and get to know your needs, weaknesses, and flaws.
These will serve them as weapons which will later help them manipulate you. If they know that you hanker for attention, they will shower attention on you. If you need love, empathy, and kindness, they will shower you with affection.
