When we split after a nearly 8-year marriage, he left with a suitcase packed with pieces of me: my pride, self-worth, hopes, dreams.He didn't take those things using his hands; he took them using his words.A normal person treats people and animals with kindness and respect, regardless of their status. Maybe they've kicked at your pet or threatened an animal? If so, it can be a red sign that they have some dark and disturbing thoughts.This is not normal behavior and is indicative of a mental issue. Psychopaths are found in many walks of life and are often successful in competitive professions. According to popular wisdom, psychopaths are crazed and bloodthirsty serial killers. While many psychopaths do commit violent crimes, not all psychopaths are criminals and not all criminals are psychopathic.However psychopaths are thought to be responsible for half of all reported crimes and to make up between 15% and 20% of the prison population.The programme looks at the most recent research into the brains and behaviour of psychopaths and assesses the prospects for the treatment or containment of this antisocial group of people who create such a disproportionate amount of destruction.
Be sure, the silent treatment and disappearing act will be laid squarely at your feet. Psychopaths love to work you up into a state of obsessive frenzy, so to do that, they idealize you, give you fabulous sex, and then begin pulling away and "triangulating."

Did he miraculously beat cancer but it could come back at any minute? Once he has you hooked, you'll find yourself begging for sex because he suddenly won't want it anymore. Like you might be cooking dinner and suddenly he blurts, "I'm crazy you know." Or "I'm cheating on you." He will then either deny he said it or play it off as a joke. Once psychopaths have you hooked after the "love bombing" and "idealization" phase, they then begin to devalue you.
That's why we understand each other." If there's an obscure book you love, he will make sure he loves it too. Pay careful attention to what a psychopath says on the first few dates about his exes and other people in his life. Does he break his foot on your second date and has to cancel? ) Did he lose his first wife in a car accident that left him with brain trauma (yet he talks fine and seems fine)? Everyone wants great sex, but those who have been with a psychopath often say it's the best thing they've ever experienced. A form of keeping you off balance -- but also possibly an unconscious slip of the mask of his persona. The first step in that is usually to give you the silent treatment over something.
