Before we discuss how to destroy a psychopath, it must be made clear that destroying someone is an undesirable act. But those who have suffered at the hands of psychopaths often desire to take revenge and destroy them. Since it’s the psychopaths who are in the habit of ruining others’ lives, there’s nothing wrong about letting someone taste their own medicine.
On internet forums, you’ll meet countless people who say you can’t destroy a psychopath. Most of them advise you to forgive and stay away from a psychopath. While staying away from psychopaths is the best thing you can do, shying away from them is the worst strategy. If you retreat, you’ll find psychopaths coming after you and continuing to ruin your life. In my opinion, it’s like signing your death sentence with your hands.
After careful observation and analysis, I can say that people who talk about forgiving a psychopath happen to be masochistic. If you’re a masochist, you deserve this kind of treatment from a psychopath. It’s because masochistic people derive pleasure from pain. However, you don’t need to become one of those who find satisfaction in their suffering. If you are reading this article, it already implies that you want a solution. Forgiving and moving away is no solution. It would be best if you blocked the path of your suffering naturally and sustainably.
Don’t be afraid that you’ve always learned to do good with others — the root of your suffering, though you should feel peace for your goodness. It wasn’t your fault after all.
Is there a Scientific Way to Destroy a Psychopath?
Have you ever heard of the science of decision-making? If not, it’s time for you to get acquainted with game theory.
Some people are naturally indecisive and find it difficult to choose right from wrong.
In addition, interpersonal relationships are subject to more confusion than anything else. Predicting people’s behavior can be highly chaotic. When faced with negative interactions, most of us are left wondering how to behave. It is where game theory can help us.
Since psychopaths are pure evil, interactions with these people are inherently negative. Game theory provides us with the best solutions when we’re facing a negative, interpersonal interaction.
Game theory is the science of strategy or decision-making. In game theory, actors or players make optimal decisions in a strategic setting.
Any interaction between people is referred to as a game, and people who have a strategic interest in the game are called actors or players. While the subject is broad and complex, I’ll discuss it as long as it serves this article’s purpose.
The Tit-For-Tat Rule
The Tit-For-Tat rule is a game theory strategy in which each actor (or player) mimics their opponent’s action after cooperating for the first time. So if someone does evil to you, you should do something equally nasty back. It’s another way to say that punishment must fit the crime.
This rule posits that people can gain the maximum benefit if they cooperate. In a Tit-For-Tat strategy, an actor or a player cooperates with the other player initially and then mimics their subsequent moves. This idea follows the altruism and retaliation pattern.
The Tit-For-Tat rule is almost similar to what Confucius, a Chinese genius had said:
“There are those men who say to repay evil with kindness. But I say, how then are we to repay kindness? Repay kindness with kindness, but repay evil with justice.”
Since psychopaths don’t seem to cooperate, you must retaliate against them. If they’re always hell-bent on ruining your life, you should also discover ways to destroy them. Is there anything wrong with letting someone taste their own medicine?
At this point, it’s appropriate to know a few other rules of conduct. These rules come from different regions, religions, and cultures. Some of them are even counter-productive, so I can’t advise resorting to these rules instead of the rule proposed by game theory. In the following, I have listed some of them which I deem most important:
The Diamond Rule: “Treat others the way they desire you to treat them.”
The Golden Rule of Ethics: “Treat others the way you desire to be treated.” This rule is found in most religions and cultures.
The Platinum Rule: “Treat others the way you would want to be treated.”
The Silver Rule: “Do not do to others what you don’t desire them to do to you.”
The Bronze Rule: “Do to others as they have done to you.”
Last but not the least, there’s a “Turn the Other Cheek” rule found in Christian scriptures and teachings.
Follow this Guaranteed Formula to Destroy a Psychopath
Now that you know the game theory and why we should use it to destroy a psychopath, let’s discuss the exact pathway that leads to the destruction of psychopaths.
To destroy a psychopath, get to know something about how their mind works. Psychopaths lack conscience and are indifferent to the welfare of others. They use nasty tactics to inflict pain upon those around them.
In my Lexical Model of Psychopathy, I have pinpointed the core traits of a psychopathic personality. You can use this model to map your plan. According to this model, there are four pillars of a psychopathic personality that include egotism, maliciousness, insensitivity, and deception. In the following, I’ll use this model to lay out the exact pathway of destroying a psychopath.
Remember that psychopaths have their own sets of strengths and defects. For instance, an egocentric person is generally the least tolerant of contradiction. While egotism can seem like the strength of a person, simultaneously, it’s their most significant defect. Strengths and defects are the two sides of the same coin. In the case of a psychopath, all you need to do is pinpoint their personality traits and then use the Tit-For-Tat rule to destroy them.
Let’s lay out the exact blueprint for destroying a psychopath.
Psychopaths are generally mean, critical of others, and extremely fond of accusing others. There’s no cooperation possible between an average person (neurotypical) and a psychopath. Since they insult others, you should also insult them whenever you’ve got the chance to do so.
As I’ve already mentioned, psychopaths are the least tolerant of contradiction. It’s because they think that they are the center of the universe and everything revolves around them. If the insult goes successfully, a psychopath is going to have many sleepless nights.
Egotism is one of the core traits of psychopathy. If a person is an egoistic one, being insulted is probably the most painful thing for them.
Turn Malicious towards Them
Do you know what makes psychopaths tick? It’s because ordinary people want to appear cultured, refined, and educated. If people are to ever come out of their image-consciousness, you’ll see psychopaths being cornered in every field of life.
Being nice is the worst thing to do in front of a psychopath. You should also be mean to them if you want to destroy them. Can you repay evil with good? Certainly not.
If you have the power to decrease the suffering of a psychopath, it’s the accurate time for you to become insensitive.
Once you have complete control over a psychopath, don’t forgive. It is what all psychopaths do. If someone doesn’t show mercy for you, you should also do the same when the opportunity arrives.
It would be best if you remembered that while psychopaths are inherently unfeeling, they can develop cognitive empathy. While they can’t feel emotional for someone, they can certainly feel for them intellectually. However, you should not expect it from a psychopath.
I suggest doing the same for psychopaths. While ordinary people show kindness towards others, including psychopaths, they can also develop cognitive apathy towards them. Apathy is a state of indifference towards the welfare of others. Certainly, neurotypicals are not able to be apathetic emotionally, but they can become one intellectually. Dealing with psychopaths requires intellect instead of emotions.
Deception is one of the hallmarks of psychopathy. Psychopaths are manipulative, cunning, and skillful liars. If you’re a naive and truthful person, you’re a sitting duck for psychopaths. I suggest doing the same to a psychopath. While the maxim goes, “Speak the truth, or at least don’t lie,” I have changed it to “Tell a lie, or at least don’t speak the truth.”
Speaking the truth is the worst thing you can do while being in the vicinity of a psychopath. If you want to make psychopaths suffer, keep on telling lies. But I advise you to do it skillfully because psychopaths are extremely good at detecting lies.
Psychopaths listen to your conversations attentively, have good observations, and remain alert all the time. All you have to do is provide them with the incorrect data so that they cannot use it against you. If someone doesn’t have the correct data, their efforts go in vain, resulting in frustration and suffering.
In the end, I advise you to become powerful, knowledgeable, and self-conscious. It’s because victims of psychopaths also happen to be the victims of a great self-illusion. They often doubt their abilities and potential. In addition, I have an observation that most of them are people-pleasers and try to be nice to others. Remember that not everyone deserves the same kind of treatment.
If you want to destroy a psychopath for good, remember that you’re playing a game; and you can only win it with a calm mind. Good luck with being strategic this time!!!
