A Healing & Informative Site About Narcissistic Sociopaths

Sociopath and the Duping Delight

“The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them”      maya angelou

Sociopaths and Narcissists enjoy the art of duping, or the art of conning or whatever verb you want to inject. Everyday that you forgive the sociopaths behavior, believe the litany of lies, and give habitual second chances is only enabling the sociopath to continue this destructive behavior towards you {and children if you have them}.

The sociopaths use a mixture of words and sentences all scramble together to create the duper delight salad. Here are the ingredients of the salad:

  • abundance of meaningless and irrelevant facts {as they see them}
  • circular conversation that never ends
  • condescending tone, talking down to you
  • blaming, shaming, and denying and always having excuses
  • alternating from abuser to victim to back again
  • always right with their point of views
  • relentless in their verbal dissertation when wanting you to believe something {especially when you know to be untrue}

Why does a sociopath get a thrill out of duping you? Because it gives them a sense of pulling one over on someone. They also do this, like they do most things, to obtain something; sex, social status, domination,money, sympathy, housing, entertainment and so on. When a sociopath ‘gets away’ with something it gives them a sense of superiority. They have spent years mimicking other’s, never developing their own individuality, therefore just taking bits and pieces of the duper delight and what they have been able to personally gain from it. This is learned behavior they have in place, and all at the expense of an innocent person(s).

The sociopath is in constant forward motion keeping the duper delight mask on. All the while wearing the mask of model citizen, or highly respected in a chosen profession, a wonderful spouse/parent, or even an excellent neighbor etc. If they are caught they can blame the one incident on an innocent mistake, when in all reality this is their true character! Duping people, conning people out of whatever the sociopath feels they deserve is a normal way of life to the sociopath. More often than not you may find yourself hoping the sociopath will change and start doing the right thing. The sad truth is, most will not stop. Or are you self-driven to not say anything just to keep the peace? This just enables the sociopath to continue the same destructive behavior. Even when confronted, the sociopath will toss the salad and something else will come out of their mouth…..always keeping a level of confusion and exhaustion when dealing with them. o_O

    Great commentary. Thank you. I see a good deal of sociopathic behaviour with people in religious disciplines, with what is called, “toxic faith.” I have a question though, what are the differences between sociopathic behaviour and a dissociative personality?
