How to Communicate With a Psychopath: 3 Tips for Dealing With the Emotionally Stunted | PairedLife

The safest policy is to have no contact with such dysfunctional individuals. However, there will be times when you will have to deal with a psychopath, whether it be a co-worker, some confrontational clown at the movie theater, a family member you couldn’t avoid – parent, sibling, child, etc. Or perhaps, you’re trying to co-parent with one of these personality disordered individuals.

I am not a professional; my advice comes from my own personal experience, and from a wealth of resources – books, websites, forums, etc. In my opinion, the following are the three most important things to know when interacting with a psychopath. It’s also worth mentioning that true “communication” with one of these manipulators is not possible, so be aware of that going into any interaction with someone like this. It’s a dance where they try to get into your head, and you either naively let them in, or put your guard up and try to maintain a good defense.

  1. Excellent advice. Like you, I’m no expert on the subject, but what you describe here is a stunningly accurate picture of my own experience. It’s a shame I learned all this way too late in the game. I think setting boundaries could have saved me a lot of grief over the years.
