sociopath uses a basic learned behavior to get what they want, which is as follows:
A sociopath can use either mode to get what they want. They usually are submissive to “butter
up” their victim/s and make themselves trustworthy. However, when they want something, they
will adopt dominance for a period of time to demand what they want.
- Knocking down defensiveness
If an individual gets defensive about the
dominant aggressiveness, submission is adopted again, praise and pity are
used together, and as soon as their victim/s calm down, dominance is use
- Wearing them down
If they grow defensive again, submission is used
again. This cycle repeats until the
individual gives in.
In the mean time, these
methods are refined. The sociopath figures out exactly how to
inflate the victim’s ego the best, and uses fear to gain respect from the victim. The sociopath molds their personality to
that of what the victim either wants or to the victim’s personality and
thus pries praise out of them, as well as admiration. As time goes on,
they get better and better at the dominance-submissiveness cycle, making
it more and more personal.
The sociopath will use
excitement and fun through their impulsivity to isolate you from others
and make your time with them enjoyable as well as endearing. They make it seem like they would do
anything for you but they are the victim because you will not ever give
them what they want in return.
The resulting goal is to guilt the person into a submissive state where
they finally give in to the predator’s desires.
Once the person gives in, the sociopath gives them
a break and relaxation as a reward… until they want something else. Eventually the victim lives for nothing
but the seventh stage, and so grows to be a willing victim who admires
their persecutor and believes they couldn’t live without them.
stages are rather unimaginative and simplistic, which is why sociopaths
everywhere come to use it. Their inward observing
and obsessive behavior leads them to inevitably develop the
Seven-Step process of manipulation.
