"Don'ts" list for dealing with sociopaths

A reader asked for help in dealing with the domineering, allegedly sociopathic mother of his child, how to counteract her behavior, and how to keep his child out from under her dictatorial boot:
There are definitely things you can do to counteract her behavior, although there is a very real chance that you will just end up winning the battles but never the war. Maybe you're fine with that. The issue is that any counteraction measures would be very context specific -- sociopath specific -- and there are certain very effective counteraction measures I can suggest that you might not be good at or might not want to do because you're not that type of person (e.g. evil). It's tricky. I think the only general advice I can give is more about things to never do, because the only thing worse than not gaining ground is losing ground, non?

Things to never do:

1. Accusations. Sociopaths never respond well to accusations, it will always turn into a knockdown fight in which you will be bloodied much more than they ever will be.

2. Recriminations. (see accusations, above).

3. Emotions. Sociopaths generally don't want to hear about how what you feel if what you feel is negative towards them. If you are in anything remotely like a fight, accusation, or recrimination, do not under any circumstances get emotional. The limited exception, as another reader has pointed out, is when the sociopath is feeling wronged by you, is hurt, etc., in which you should show exactly the amount of normal empathy you would show an empath under those circumstances (more on that in another post).

4. Ultimatum or any other power plays. Sociopaths see ultimatums, artificial pressure (e.g. emotional pressure), power plays, etc. as being either threats or games. I don't think you will like the result of either approach.

5. Talk about being "right" or "wrong." Sociopaths don't really believe there is such thing as being right or wrong, there is only more or less powerful.

Don't worry about her hurting your child, she will probably want to alienate him/her from you more than she will want to have him/her trauma bond to you by her inflicting trauma on him. Your child is half her, so will probably grow up disrespecting you too, if you can't hold your own against your partner. If you want what is best for your child, you will get your crap together and become the type of person that demands respect by your very presence, your very being.

    7. My mother was a sociopath, my Father was not... He was successful with helping me by being the respectable loving and compassionate father he was. He taught me by his example not by words.. He was patient, kind, long suffering, he unlike her was not easily angered, he was a humble man unlike her who was boastful, he was patient she was impatient... basically he lived the opposite of what she did and it counteracted the damage from her... not that he was able to rid it all... but by his living breathing example I was able to see something other than her was normal and kindness and love did exist... he only spoke kind words over her as well... I do not once remember him speaking anything unkind over or about her...

  4. Those are some superb pairs of tits on those women by the way m.e lol.

    Anyway, men often get a bad wrap when it comes to separation, especially when children are involved. A good father shouldn't be denied his child, no matter how much of a twat he was to the mother. Its irrelevant when it comes to his "parenting skills". However on the flip side its often easier for a guy to blame a woman for being a bit of a "nutter", when the father consistantly fails to show for visitations or comes empty handed when the child needs new shoes because he spent his money on a few wild nights on the beer? Or maybe he is off fathering other children that he shows more interest in?,...maybe even dabbles in recreational drugs. Who knows hey?

    If this guy is paying for the upkeep of his child, being there if the child falls sick and generally having a consistant hands on role, then his ex is probably just being an arkward bitch and using the child to punish him. If not, then its his own fault. Why should he be allowed to continually disappoint his child? I suppose any mother who felt her child was being set up for a continuous fall would just want to cut off the source of aggravation?

    There is often more to it then the usual, "i can't see the child".
    Whats the reason? There usually is one. Does this guy have a different partner every other month and the mother doesn't want her child to be unsettled by having to adjust to random strangers? Maybe the guy associates with undesirables? Does the guy come round every so often for a bit of sex from the childs mother, then drops her like a hot brick after? lol. Who knows?
    Maybe the mother has taken on the lions share of the responsibility and doesn't feel the guy has actually done enough to warrant being a "father"?.

    Or maybe she is just a sociopath?
    If so God help you lol

    Guys save yourself this hassle and put a helmet on your soldier.

    Tink ;)

  12. Actually, looking back, I think I misunderstood you. Yeah, I was afraid to fight this guy. I don't like fighting. But rage overpowers that, and I wasn't about to let him take my things. Honestly, the outcome of the fight didn't even cross my mind. I didn't even notice how big he was 'til the shit had calmed down. If he tried something, I would've reacted as decidedly as I could have. Fueled by fear? Well, yeah, on many levels. Cowardly? Quite the opposite.

    You don't have to be fearless to stand your ground, and you don't have to put yourself in unnecessary danger to stick up for yourself. That's called being a fool.

    1. Fear is critical for both cowardice and courage. Being afraid when you are at risk of having the crap pounded out of you but standing your ground is courageous. (and kinda stupid) Not being afraid when you are at risk of having the crap pounded out of you is not courage, it is just plain stupidity.

  13. Pan, so let me get this straight. You're a physically small, financially struggling, man who sat there while some punk raped your laundry and told you that you should be in a nuthouse. Then afterward you tell yourself you played it cool and that was the only reason he didn't pull a pair of your underpants over your head and stick a sock in your mouth?

  16. I have learned a few useful things from this blog for dealing with sociopaths.. this all seems very basic to me, though. I think the best way to deal with a sociopath is to make them think they're winning while still getting what you want. you may have to compromise a bit though, because you are never going to be able to bully a sociopath into submission--they are very willful. they're really like children, so their needs are simple. sociopaths are very chameleon-like also, so try to compliment them on what you what to see, like if you want them to be more considerate, comment on how considerate they have been lately and thank them, even if that isn't really true. this shows them positively what you want in their behavior and also gives some kind of unexpected positive reinforcement. this works on "normal" people too, it helps create an image that they want to live up to for you.

    Anyways, I'm curious about what the things a person SHOULD do are, although, this has been posted about before. I'm not a sociopath, but we all have to deal with them from time to time, so it's good to know their weaknesses.

    I don't really understand how to recognize a female sociopath either... it seems like this personality disorder is more common in males? I notice more females that are borderline (and they can be similar in how much damage they can cause, but a borderline is way more emotional and likely to lose control). I've never met another woman I thought was a sociopath, so I wonder how the traits might express themselves differently. I'm a borderline female I think, but I wish I was more like a sociopath, because things can get very messy, very quickly, and I would rather be on the winning side rather than self-destructing while bringing others around down with me. Narcissism seems just as likely to express itself in a male or female in my experience.

  17. Laura,

    start by thinking before you react. try to rehearse it in your head. what are you hoping to accomplish? where will becoming an emotional mess get you? what are you trying to achieve? as women it is more difficult on the emotional side but with practice you can learn to "dull" the emotions and think with strategy. you can play anyone at any time once you remove your emotions.

  18. The conscienceless have more support than they've had in years, broken families, media driven fantasies, of fast money, and endless stories of people who think they can live on the edge and not get hurt. The Cable show (Dexter) glazes over the enormous amount of money Dexter needs; the lack of sleep, time spent away from his family life; broken promises, which for the moral are all unacceptable. The acient Greeks, have described this mental deviant thousands of years' ago...in the story of Narcissus.

    Narcissus was a pansy compared to Zeus (rapist/murderer) and the primordial Gods of both Greek/Babylonian/Mesopotamian origin. Interestingly, all were worshipped as the arbiters of morality regardless.

  20. My mother is a sociopath. The abuse I have suffered at her hands (physical, mental and psychological is profound. I finally had a showdown with her and let her have it a couple years ago. She twisted everything around and told wild stories about me to my siblings. I have had no contact with her since then (two years ago) and never plan to again. My problem is trying to find peace within myself and forgiveness.

  21. Elizabeth. Peace is in knowing that the incident was in the past. What happened is what happened and there is nothing you can do about it now. If you feel you should have acted differently, tell your mom. She can take it or leave it but your duty is done. And it doesn't mean that you have to gain a new relationship with her.

  22. I am living a real life horror story. I have come to understand that my sons father is a sociopath. I always knew he was crazy but I have just informed myself that technically he is a sociopath. Well, not always, I saw it first when I was 3 months pregnant. I have always tried to make him happy. We met when I was 19 and I fell head over heals for him. So naturally, being charismatic, I wanted to make him happy, so we could live happily ever after. It is now 8 years later and he is my only enemy on Gods Green Earth. We have been out of a relationship for 3 years now but he is still a night mare. The last physical fight we had, he picked up a gun and hit me with it. That was my last straw. I left then and never went back.


    I know he loves me, but he cant control himself. The relationship was so bad, that I had to think of everything I wanted to say 3 times before I actually spoke, because it could lead to a physical fight. By the time I left, I had lost 30 pounds from being a nervous wreck. Anyway, i have tried to be civil for the sake of our son, but if he cant have the both of us, he has a huge problem. So now, it has come to the point where he doesn't see our child at all. But he cries wolf to people and the court system that I have taken him away. When in fact,I have never denied him visitation but naturally the arrangements come to an end because I refuse to be bullied, manipulated, disrespected, or threatened.

    Now I don't want him around my son at all, ever. Ever again in life. I wreck my brain with it all the time. But,how much abuse can one person take, when I have tried to be rational for so long. My mom has tried to be a third party, his sister has tried to be a third party, his mom has tried to be a third party. He destroys it with everyone. It has cost me a lot of scars and money. I truly fear him. (oh, i forgot to mention he is clinically diagnosed bipolar schizophrenic, I didn't find that out until my son was 2)

    I don't want him to know where I stay, or anything. Stuck in a sticky situation! I want my son to have his father but his father doesn't "truly" want to be a father. He wants to be a DICTATOR over me. I told him that as far as I am concerned he doesn't exist and if he ever steps foot on my door step for any reason, I will attack him like a stranger. I figure, he has threatened to kill me so many times,........ If he is around but not invited he must be there to fight. Better me to get him before he gets me......

    The law is only reactive, so I cant depend on it for any type of safety. He is very cunning, sneaky, and slick. I keep my guards up constantly, now that my fiancee and I have separated, i feel extra vulnerable.

    My last dilemma is how to deal with the rest of his family. His oldest sister doesn't have much to do with him, so I don't mind taking my son to and from seeing her. But his younger sister and his mom still deal with him. The younger sister has two children that my son absolutely adores. In an effort to keep his relationship with his favorite cousins, do I risk my life, my sanity?

  24. Ideally, sociopaths should be ridiculed. They can act as if they will take on anyone who dares insult them, but i bet they would change their ways if so many people weren't afraid to say, "haha, loser".

I am amazed at how people love my psychotic mother, she would scare most hardened criminals! Its weird how most people are attracted and even defend psychopaths.

  28. Wow you people are petty and stupid everyone has problems and everyone is capable of everything stated and Because of a display of a disorder we get the heat of it Lol. I have this exact disorder it was identified when I was like six and it has been dealt with through alot of people and lots of different treatment. I never once saw a problem in myself so I never listened until I figured out my action and thoughts were so much different then others. Then I decided to actually tell the Truth and deal Because I was about to be a mother and my child is my best work. And now I still have issues occasional symptoms but, I'm able to maintain a semi normal life and even love anyone I consider mine I would never cross or hurt and I love deeply and protect them. I don't really have a sympathy and I still sometimes find myself toying with others that are not close to me and I try to stop and back down and it's hard and sometimes I can't but, I'm making progress. I understand that most people with this disorder do bad things all that and are terrible.so naturally were defined the same but, once someone is able to see it for what it is it helps don't get me wrong I'm an evil wanting to control everything little demon under it all but, I've learned to conquer that it was fun. I still have issues finding any emotions other then anger but, I know love so sorry I don't fit into your idea of normal you boring excuse of existence if you want a perfect human talk to God and see if he will do you a favor. The only reason I'm writing this is because I came to terms with it and handle it accordingly I don't enjoy being profiled because of something I was born with and can't just medicate away. I think you all have a disorder pointing fingers at others and putting people in one category sounds a little egotistical to me thinking you have that right. Maybe you should stop pointing a finger and be a solution instead of a problem before you meet a real out of touch person with no known disorder.

  30. Anyways standing ovation to you like I said the solution not the problem maybe more people would actually come out and deal with this disorder if they were not persecuted for it. And made to think they were this evil thing that was roaming the earth would you want to talk about it if that's what you were thought as and made to believe. Obviously it's a shaky road and some people with this disorder are capable and do terrible things but, look at the world every one can it's human nature all I'm saying is before you classify someone with this disorder make sure you have a degree on the subject went to school for it and met sevral people with it and actually got to know them other wise its insulting and makes someone whos struggling with it want to just give up.

  34. Thanks but, I actually came to this site thinking it was support for people who are actually trying to deal with this but, I found the oppisite. Witch is fine i know what people think what they dont understand is when people have this disorder there natural reaction is to fight be right defend themselves and be cruel and not care for anyone once you try to live without those reactions it's like learning to walk and very difficult and irritating at times but, with time and supportive people it can be done it's never gone it's just you have to learn to not be compulsive and you have to think twice with everything you do or say or you can trigger yourself. There's alot to this disorder and it's scary and I won't even get into a daily regimen of a person with it cause while symptoms may be the same each person handles it different and uses there so called issues I think there skills to there advantage it's hard on someone to live without it.

He told me to get out and never come back and that was after I took him out on a grocery run. I drove off and smoked a cigarette and came back and there he was sitting in his van waiting for me to come back and I told my dad that we were gonna need to learn to be more tolerable of each other. Do you have any pointers?! He always plays off his nasty behavior as I was only joking like to smooth things over! I just don't get it?! lol He watches FOX NEWS and he's like all talking about it everywhere we go and I said to him not EVERYONE wants to hear about that crap and it sets him off and gets him heated and he appears to not give a rip about anyone else except himself and his vindications..........it's scarry sad and depressing.........it's gotten worse with age with the passing of my mom and his current health he's AFIB..........what do I do?! I am not giving up and will continue to be here, but I am the oldest his daughter and I take all the crap and my brother and sister don't even see that even the ugliest person needs to be cared for and cared about.......I am a caregiver myself and it's been very difficult at times sometimes burn out happens when I care for hospice patients and dementia/alzheimers patients............prepared in advance for when my mom passed and now with my dads present mental medical state..........help!!!!!!! lol

  41. Inviting Everyone for a Group Snuggle

    Up From The Sofa

    The rulebook was written, when I fell asleep, was picking something off my dress, or went to the bathroom. I am mildly retarded, yet I can pass, like a white who has a drop of black.

    I am in a continual bemused state because the rules come crashing down on me, from nowhere, like tidal waves. One minute you are sitting on the beach and the next: BOOM.

    I have a look of bewilderment on my face, like someone who is falls down, when they were trying to look cool. I hate when that happens.

  42. How I could have missed obvious rules is beyond me. I must be suspended in Rip Van Winkle cryogenics.

  44. In the year 2022, the penal system is run entirely by corporations, with prisoners seen as assets. Ex-marine John Robbins is imprisoned for life for murdering his commanding officer, who in 2011 ordered him to kill scores of innocent men, women and children in Benghazi (Libya). The event haunts Robbins over a decade later.

    Robbins had escaped from two Level 5 maximum security prisons and is now incarcerated in a Level 6 facility. A fellow prisoner tells him about "Absolom" [sic], an island where they send the worst prisoners—a place feared more than the prison. The warden is convinced that Robbins is a threat and exiles him to the island.

    Once on the island, Robbins is captured by a numerous group of prisoners known as the 'Outsiders', whose only order is The Law of the Jungle and are led by a sociopath named Marek. The island —previously a private retreat with dilapidated houses and a swimming pool— is where the Outsiders have established a base. Marek insists that Robbins fight one of his men for his amusement. Marek is impressed when Robbins kills his opponent in seconds, and offers him a position in his gang. Robbins instead knocks Marek into a pool, steals his rocket launcher, and flees from the Outsider's camp. Pursued through the jungle, he ends up trapped at the edge of a high cliff where he is shot in the neck by a blowgun dart. He falls into the river below, where he washes up on some rocks and is retrieved by another group, called the 'Insiders'.

    Robbins awakens inside the Insiders' camp, which is led by a man called 'The Father', who put together a cooperative autonomous community with laws opposed to the tyranny of the Outsiders. The Insiders number exactly 98, while the Outsiders total over 600. Robbins learns that he is the only person to have ever challenged and escaped from Marek's camp and that the weapon he stole had been appropriated for the good of the community. The Father notes his resourcefulness and asks Robbins to join them. He refuses and says he wants to leave Absolom. Robbins is taken to the shore, where he learns that they are 200 miles from the mainland, and that there are gunships 50 miles off the coast. The prisoners are also being tracked by infrared satellite technology.

    Robbins learns of the Insiders' plan to escape using a motorboat, and he demands a seat, determined to escape so he can tell the authorities the truth behind the civilian deaths in Libya. He learns that the Insiders' boat engine needs a distributor, a part which Robbins saw while in Marek's camp. Robbins offers to get the part in exchange for a seat on the boat, and the Insiders agree. Robbins infiltrates the Outsiders' camp and gets the engine part, but he is almost caught. With the help of an Insider spy, Robbins escapes from the camp again, which infuriates Brett Gyllenskog, who announces an all-out war with the Insiders.

    Over stern objection, Robbins convinces the Insiders to abandon their camp. However, he stays behind to fire a rocket launcher, which ignites an incendiary bomb that kills most of the Outsiders. It also triggers the satellite infrared sensors, causing the Warden to send troops to the island. Marek survives and attacks Robbins, but the Father defends him before he can deliver the final blow. Marek kills The Father and Robbins kills Marek just as the Insiders get the boat engine working. The boat is suddenly blown up and the boat builder is stabbed by the informer. Robbins learns that King is the informer in the Insiders' camp who has been contacting the Warden by radio, informing him of each escape attempt made. Robbins forces King to give false information to the Warden, so that he lands his helicopter on the island and looks for the informant. Robbins hijacks the helicopter, throwing the Warden off the ship, and escapes from Absolom, vowing to spread the truth about the island. King and the Warden are left behind, looking anxiously to the trees as the unseen Outsiders close in on them.

  46. I just got a divorce from a sociopath after 18 years of marriage. He blamed me for everything. He was very kind, soft spoken, always did things I liked such as walks, and restaurants when we were not doing his stuff first. Our three kids were not a priority for him though. Huge drawback. My lawyer told me to make copies of everything in our warehouse before I gave back the key. I was in shock (for the second time) when I learned of 18 years of secrets and lies. It was unbelievable. I still don't believe it and it has been three years we are separated. Lies, Lies, and more lies.

  47. So basically... Just let them run all over you, get away with everything, and continually put up with their disordered bullsh*t until they've either driven you to suicide or have sucked you completely dry in every aspect, and they have no further use for you? Oh, right, I forgot... If you're not disordered, you deserve to be punished by those who are. Disgusting.

    1. Don't try to deal with a sociopath by appealing to empathy as you would a normal person...sociopaths respond best when their self-interest is threatened. That is all they really understand. Knock them in the head if you need to.

  49. How do you deal with an aging father soon to be 78 in Novemeber who thinks the world should revolve around them and when it doesn't he wants to bring everyone down to his level because of his sole choice each and every day since my moms passing God rest her soul which she was an 'f'n' saint to put up with him for so many years he's always gotta bring NEGATIVE NANCY in for some play time and anyone that doesn't join in with him he gets highly pissed off and verbally batters and attacks one night he appeared to be extremely animated as if he was a puppet on a string throwing his hand at me repeatedly with finger pointed continuously verbally bashing me and everything because he cannot control how he feels or thinks or believes. He can appear to be very scarry too. Today he said to me to leave and never come back and that was after I drove him out to do a grocery run. Totally ridiculous and I see it is getting worse and worse. I am trying to find out what I need to do because right now he wants an appology from my sister who is out on her honeymoon in D.C. and my dad was livid how dare they go off to D.C. when they haven't come here to appologize for her husband yelling in his ear which my sisters husband wasn't yelling at him, but because it was in my dads ear at the time my sister and her husband were playing rough together and my sister twisted her husbands hand and he reacted and yelled out and my dad says well I will not ever forget this I will demand an appology and if I don't get one then I am cutting them out of everything! What in the 'h' is my dad going through really because I am so lost and confused right now and and anger knows no borders so he gets heated with everyone around him..........it's like a daggone whirlwind of attitudes emotions and negative bitter hatred that he exhibits to me anger toward my brother who he and his wife never come around for at least 3 years and no one in his family siblings can stand to be on the phone for too long because he's depressing as 'h' to listen to because he's all negative.........he's not happy unless he's talking about some depressing crap on FOX NEWS and the best thing I have learned to do is walk away when he told me to get the 'h' out and don't come back I drove away and smoked a cigarette and came back and found him still setting in his van waiting like a little child for momma to come back and I told him we will need to learn to be more tolerable of each other! HELP PLEASE! LOL.............

  50. Thanks for this article. Very helpful and accurate. I've had more than my share of experience with a sociopath; navigating interactions with them is VERY difficult. It took me a long time, but I found similar perspectives and techniques invaluable.

  51. A couple of weeks ago I was in a dark period in my life, the man I love to bits had gone off with someone else, that was when I was told about this Esango Priest. Well he told me he could see that we would get back together that gave me hope, and he was right, because this week we have moved in with each other and we are so happy. A big thank you to Esango Priest. If you are in need of an angel please get in touch with my Esango Priest via email:esangopriest@gmail.com
