ARE THERE WORD TWISTING SOCIOPATHS STILL IN THE CHURCH OF TODAY?
Some watch what others think of them so much that their words are designed to twist the truth, make them look better, and thereby make the other person look worse. Some, as has been said before, make themselves look better by making the other person look horrible.
False and twisted statements are often said to label someone else something they are not, or to make them look guilty of something they never even thought of doing.
This is the kind of behavior one will find in a sociopath. It is like the old Perry Mason shows, where the guilty one always turned out to be the one that in the first half the show would look less guilty. Many other movies have been made with that theme, of make everyone else look so guilty, and act like the sweet innocent victim of their evil, and thereby hope to evade being identified as the culprit.
And so, if you gain evidence against a sociopath, of evil that they have obviously done, they will, as soon as they know you have their number, present themselves to you or the others, as someone sweet, previously abused so horribly, and thereby needing of understanding and compassion. The seeking sympathy route is usually short, for the track record of most sociopaths is so littered with victims that the idea that they are a victim themselves is hard to accept.
The ‘false information’, twisted words of others, twisting their own former words to have said and meant something not meant. This is to make you doubt your evidence, make you see the other person who informed you of the sociopath’s words, as being at fault and judgmental. It is easy to invalidate your evidence, and believe the sociopath. You may even doubt your own mind, remembering words that now are denied as ever being said.
The tendency then is to delay exposure of the sociopath, or to be confused over whether it actually happened as you and others recall, or to take the easy way out and reassure the sociopath that your concern was unfounded.
Some sociopaths go even farther, and begin to accuse you then of falsely accusing them, and use the correct charge against them, as evidence of your desire to spread false lies about them.
The sociopath has the ability to think quickly, having trained their mind to come up with excuses and reasons for all their behaviors. If the situation is critical, they will stall for time with distraction, or simply change the subject.
Then the comparison with others is a tactic that works well. The serial killer of ten people looks far better when the discussion is on Adolph Hitler who killed millions upon millions. Yet, if the subject is redirected back to their own wrongs, they will then ask you to ‘remember when’, and bring up something totally irrelevant, but needing discussion.
If that fails, then they lie further, to protect the first lie. Lie upon lie leads to confusion, and the sociopath has never admitted the first lie, and soon so many lies encumber the walk, that you may have well had stayed home.
The pattern of lie, deflect, lie more, deny, falsely accuse others, make themselves look to wonderful to have ever really been guilty, etc. continues and continues. Finally, at worst for the sociopath, there is another chance given, for the attempt to get them to repent of their deeds and lies, and be forgiven is frustrated by the many denials of being anything less than a saint.
You may know of a certainty that the person is lying. You may have evidence to show that it is unquestionable guilt. The twisting of the words, the rewriting of history, the shaming the objector with evil and malign motives, leaves a frustration that only the victims of the sociopath will understand.
Other people watch your confrontation with the sociopath, and ask, ‘why did you stay or talk so long?’ They may say, ‘why did you not use this evidence or that evidence?’. The sociopath is clever, manipulative, and will attempt to dissuade all from ever making them answer for their wrongs.
You and others can still feel suspicious, or even still know that you have been manipulated, but the sociopath is so adept at their con, that you simply feel foolish, stupid, and give up.
A sociopath is a master of manipulation and control. The sociopath will never admit the lie, for if he did, he would lose control of the victims. The longer they can con someone, the longer they can use them.
Sociopaths usually have an exit plan. They have some other potential victim if they lose you. They have someone who is totally deceived already, that whatever story they make up for making the switch on who to con, is believed and trusted.
When totally caught, and the con no longer works, the control is lost, and the victim, at least, is so wary of the sociopath’s behavior, that they are on their way out the door, the sociopath will rush to get out first, and loudly proclaim to all that they are glad to have escaped you.
This is a trick of mirrors, trying to make the whole situation look like you were the sociopath, and they were blessed to have escaped your vile plans. Many will fall for this con, and see you as the sociopath, and see the sociopath as the victim. This the illusion with mirrors that the sociopath will use to deflect, distract, and lie to the new intended victim.
