When looking at dangerous personalities, we must examine those who fall under the emotionally unstable category. They have a tremendous need to be loved but little ability to maintain a healthy relationship.
Just take the tragic case of famous Saturday Night Live comedian Phil Hartman, who was married to an emotionally unstable woman. In response, she fatally shot Hartman before killing herself. This personality type also seeks attention through impulsive and reckless behavior, which sometimes includes sexual exploits.
Many believe that Bonnie Parker, of the notorious bank-robbing duo Bonnie and Clyde, had an unstable personality. Sadly, she left behind a child, and her impulsive sexual history resulted in numerous men claiming to be the father. Dangerous Personalities Key Idea 3: Paranoid personalities can see anyone as a threat, which sometimes leads to hatred and violence. We all have a built-in warning system designed to alert us to potential threats. But a paranoid personality is wired with a warning system that is constantly on overdrive, picking up threats from all sides.
There are a few ways to spot a paranoid personality. They often relentlessly monitor the words and actions of others, hoping to validate their irrational fears by finding signs of sinister or malicious intent. This monitoring can extend to neighbors, coworkers, foreigners, different ethnic groups, the government, family members — virtually anyone. One of the more famous paranoid personalities was President Richard Nixon.
We can see it in the way he was constantly adding to his list of enemies and in his repeated claims that he was unable to confide in anyone. When it comes to facts and history, paranoid personalities are very selective with what they decide to believe is true. They also have the ability to string together completely unconnected events and ideas to support their views and validate their actions. Paul Jennings Hill had a similarly paranoid mind. Hill, a right-wing Christian extremist, believed killing a doctor who performed abortions was a justifiable way of protecting unborn children.
So, in , he walked into a Florida clinic and murdered Dr. Plus, these groups feed their paranoia since they often involve getting prominently visible tattoos or wearing insignia and costumes that cause people to turn their heads and whisper to each other about their unusual appearance. Dangerous Personalities Key Idea 4: The predatory personality poses the biggest threat since it can kill without hesitation or remorse. Of all the dangerous psyches, the predatory personality is the most troubling since they have no conscience when it comes to their actions.
This is the kind of mind Josef Fritzl has. The Austrian predator kept his daughter imprisoned in a cellar for 24 years, raping her over three thousand times and siring seven of her children.
This emotionless state is how Dennis Rader responded when telling the police how he bound, tortured and killed ten people, a process that earned him the name, the BTK Killer. Normally, people use words to communicate, but for predators, words are a tool to manipulate and coerce people into doing their bidding. A famous example of this is Jack Henry Abbott, who wrote a celebrated book called In the Belly of the Beast while doing time in jail for forgery and stabbing another inmate to death.
It worked, and Abbott was released early. Dangerous Personalities Key Idea 5: People can have multiple dangerous personalities, and this can heighten the risk of their doing harm. A similar danger exists in the process of assigning someone a dangerous personality.
There are many instances throughout history of people who display multiple dangerous personality types. What gives multiple personality types the potential to be more dangerous is that one trait often has the tendency to heighten the others.
For example, if someone is a paranoid narcissistic predator, their suspicious and self-obsessed nature can make them even more of a threat to those around them. This is what was found when Warren Jeffs, a polygamist cult leader in Utah, was arrested in Commandment 6: Always try to watch people for multiple tells—behaviors that occur in clusters or in succession.
Commandment 8: Learning to detect false or misleading nonverbal signals is also critical. Commandment 9: Knowing how to distinguish between comfort and discomfort will help you to focus on the most important behaviors for decoding nonverbal communications. Commandment When observing others, be subtle about it.
Supreme Court decision known to every police officer in the United States. Since , this ruling has allowed police officers to stop and frisk individuals without a warrant when their behaviors telegraph their intention to commit a crime. Like other animal species whose limbic brains protected them in this manner, humans possessing these limbic reactions survived to propagate because these behaviors were already hardwired into our nervous system.
In reality, the way animals, including humans, react to danger occurs in the following order: freeze, flight, fight.
If the reaction really were fight or flight, most of us would be bruised, battered, and exhausted much of the time. When I see this type of behavior, it tells me something is wrong; this is a limbic response that needs to be further explored. People lean away from each other subconsciously when they disagree or feel uncomfortable around each other. Eye blocking is a very powerful display of consternation, disbelief, or disagreement.
When women pacify using the neck, they often do so by covering or touching their suprasternal notch with their hand Covering of the neck dimple pacifies insecurities, emotional discomfort, fear, or concerns in real time.
Playing with a necklace often serves the same purpose. Rubbing of the forehead is usually a good indicator that a person is struggling with something or is undergoing slight to severe discomfort. Exhaling with puffed out cheeks is a great way to release stress and to pacify.
Notice how often people do this after a near mishap. It also covers the suprasternal notch. Touching or stroking the face is a frequent human pacifying response to stress. Motions such as rubbing the forehead; touching, rubbing, or licking the lip s ; pulling or massaging the earlobe with thumb and forefinger; stroking the face or beard; and playing with the hair all can serve to pacify an individual when confronting a stressful situation.
Sometimes we see individuals under stress yawning excessively. This behavior involves a person usually a male putting his fingers between his shirt collar and neck and pulling the fabric away from his skin see figure This ventilating action is often a reaction to stress and is a good indicator that the person is unhappy with something he is thinking about or experiencing in his environment.
A woman may perform this nonverbal activity more subtly by merely ventilating the front of her blouse or by tossing the back of her hair up in the air to ventilate her neck. When facing stressful circumstances, some individuals will pacify by crossing their arms and rubbing their hands against their shoulders, as if experiencing a chill.
Watching a person employ this pacifying behavior is reminiscent of the way a mother hugs a young child. In order to gain knowledge about a person through nonverbal pacifiers, there are a few guidelines you need to follow: Recognize pacifying behaviors when they occur.
I have provided you with all of the major pacifiers. As you make a concerted effort to spot these body signals, they will become increasingly easy to recognize in interactions with other people.
Your job, as a collector of nonverbal intelligence, is to find out what that something is.
Understand that pacifying behaviors almost always are used to calm a person after a stressful event occurs. Thus, as a general principle, you can assume that if an individual is engaged in pacifying behavior, some stressful event or stimulus has preceded it and caused it to happen. The ability to link a pacifying behavior with the specific stressor that caused it can help you better understand the person with whom you are interacting.
Note what part of the body a person pacifies. This is significant, because the higher the stress, the greater the amount of facial or neck stroking is involved. If his feet are wiggling or bouncing, his shirt and shoulders will be vibrating or moving up and down.
Where one foot points and turns away during a conversation, this is a sign the person has to leave, precisely in that direction.
This is an intention cue. Clasping of the knees and shifting of weight on the feet is an intention cue that the person wants to get up and leave. When the toes point upward as in this photograph, it usually means the person is in a good mood or is thinking or hearing something positive. We normally cross our legs when we feel comfortable. This can provide some interesting revelations during family gatherings. When a person talks to you with feet pointed away, it is a good indication this person wants to be elsewhere.
Watch for people who make formal declarations in this position, as this is a form of distancing.
A sudden interlocking of the legs may suggest discomfort or insecurity. When people are comfortable, they tend to unlock their ankles.
You should always be on the lookout for multiple tells tell clusters that point to the same behavioral conclusion.
They strengthen the likelihood that your conclusion is correct. The Torso Not only do we lean away from people who make us uncomfortable, we may also blade away turn slightly by degrees from that which does not appeal to us or we grow to dislike.
People lean toward each other when there is high comfort and agreement. This mirroring or isopraxis starts when we are babies. A sudden crossing of the arms during a conversation could indicate discomfort.
The question is not whether something is wrong, nor does this posture mean they are blocking the teacher out; arms intertwined across the front is a very comfortable pose for many people.
