You Overanalyze Everything

This post dissects a few common accusations that sociopaths use against you.

“You overanalyze everything.” This is meant to make you doubt your intuition, which usually means your intuition was causing them trouble. When they start playing mind games with you, it’s actually a warped, indirect tribute to your ability to notice that something was off about them.

“I hate drama.” They will make you feel bad for reacting to their horrible behaviours, instead of addressing the behaviour itself.

“You’re so sensitive.” Psychopaths manufacture emotions in others. They can turn an easy going person into an unrecognizable mess of insecurities and self-doubt.

“You misunderstood me.” They will intentionally say things to provoke you. When you react, they will blame you.

“You’re crazy, jealous, etc.” They will tell you how all of their former partners were nuts. Then, they reach out to them to triangulate and cause chaos. They toss you into the crazy bucket, continuing the cycle of idealizing and devaluing anyone unfortunate enough to cross their path.

The ego structure of the character disordered person depends on being right, and to admit an error of judgement destroys their carefully constructed image of themselves. They are masters at painting their victims as the real culprits.

They lie with remarkable ease. Watch for the frequent use of contradictory and logically inconsistent statements. They have trouble monitoring their own speech.

Make sure you are never swayed by words and blind to deeds.

  1. What about the Borderline? Are they in the bucket too??

  2. Hmm, have a family member that ticks some of these boxes.

  3. Wow….’they’…there must be lots of ‘them’! How frightening. Fortunately, I have my quark vortex blaster which sends them to another universe. Sometimes they get sent back and that’s how I know there is intelligence everywhere. 🙂

    This is bang on the money. I and other people personally knew a sociopath/psychopath in the early to mid 1970’s when the literature on this phenomena was scarce. This was a very definite steep learning curve for all concerned.
