Q & A – Fake Facebook profiles catfishing

Fake Facebook profiles, also known as catfishing, can have serious psychological consequences for both the person creating the fake profile and the individuals they are interacting with.

For the person creating the fake profile, it may stem from a desire to escape their own identity or to create a sense of power or control over others. This behavior can become addictive, leading to compulsive lying and a lack of trust in relationships.

For the individuals who are interacting with the fake profile, it can be incredibly damaging to their mental health and emotional wellbeing. They may feel deceived, betrayed, or violated, leading to feelings of anger, frustration, or helplessness. In some cases, victims may even experience symptoms of anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

In addition to the emotional toll, fake Facebook profiles can also have legal consequences. Creating a fake profile with the intention of deceiving or defrauding others can be considered a form of identity theft and can result in criminal charges.

If you suspect that you are interacting with a fake Facebook profile, it’s important to protect your privacy and safety by limiting the personal information you share online. It’s also important to report the fake profile to Facebook and consider seeking support from a trusted friend, family member, or mental health professional to help you process your emotions and cope with any negative effects. If you suspect that you may have created a fake profile, it’s important to seek help from a mental health professional to address any underlying issues and develop healthier coping strategies.

Alienation Antisocial Personality Disorder Borderline Personality Disorder Dark Triad Delusional Disorder DESTRUCTIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER PERSONALITY DISORDERS

From A long term Alienated Parent and Colleague

It seems completely ridiculous to try and understand Parental Alienation starting when the marriage breaks up. To do this is to look BACKWARDS in Time. By doing things Backwards, many people say it is Counter-Intuitive. DUH Stop trying to go backwards in Time.If you look at, or try to understand Parental Alienation from a separation or divorce, you are looking BACKWARDS IN TIME and the phenomenon appears COUNTER-INTUITIVE.With Severe Alienation, certainly, it begins BEFORE there are any Children, BEFORE there is a Relationship between the Parents.You are only looking at PA where it becomes obvious to any onlooker.A Cluster B Personality Disordered Person will Target an Empath or similar type of giving person.People DON’T suddenly develop a Cluster B PD at separation, it is caused by Trauma in the Alienating Parent’s Early Life. They ALREADY HAVE the Cluster B Personality Disorder. Such people have long since been able to mimic a friendly character and as they lack empathy, and have no boundaries that the rest of us take for granted.The First thing they do, having found an Empathetic person is to find out in conversation what the Target’s IDEAL PARTNER is like.The Cluster B person (NOT just a Narcissist, that misses 3/4 of their disordered personalities. They may have Narcissism or Borderline or Histrionic predominant.)Having found this out they PROJECT THEMSELVES onto the Target as their Ideal Partner, so the Target believes they are falling in love with their Ideal Partner. IT IS ALL LIES, but the empathetic Target believes it. This is NOT LOVE but TRAUMA BONDING.…/trauma_bonding… The Web of Lies and Deceit woven by the Cluster B person is slowly seen through by the Target.Cluster B people want children so they can have a Relationship they can control, but they lack Boundaries so they see children as part of themselves, NOT an individual. This is known as PATHOGENIC ENMESHMENT and occurs from when the child is born. They also see children as Chattels which they own.The marriage breaks down when EITHER;1. The Target realises the person they are married to is Not who they purported to beOR2. The Cluster B person has taken all they think they will get from this person, or meets someone else who they see as offering more.Don’t forget these Cluster B people have NO BOUNDARIES so they will think NOTHING of being UNFAITHFUL.When one person breaks the marriage up, then their behaviour is seen by Family Court, by which time they have beaten the Target Parent Psychologically to a pulp, seek to cut the Target Parent out of the lives of the children which they see as part of them, so inflict the divorce on the children.

Laurence Norwin Allen has been an alienated parent even longer than me and has joined me in creating various support and information groups on FB. We were amongst the few who dared to put our heads above the parapet many years ago and bring PA out into the open and create a space where people could speak out and share their knowledge and stories.

Thankyou Laurence for letting me share this article. You can read more of Laurences work here.

Why Do Humans Harm the Harmless?

Why are some humans cruel to people who don’t even pose a threat to them – sometimes even their own children? Where does this behavior come from and what purpose does it serve?

Humans are the glory and the scum of the universe, concluded the French philosopher, Blaise Pascal, in 1658. Little has changed. We love and we loathe; we help and we harm; we reach out a hand and we stick in the knife.

We understand if someone lashes out in retaliation or self-defence. But when someone harms the harmless, we ask: “How could you?”

Humans typically do things to get pleasure or avoid pain. For most of us, hurting others causes us to feel their pain. And we don’t like this feeling. This suggests two reasons people may harm the harmless – either they don’t feel the others’ pain or they enjoy feeling the others’ pain.


Sadistic personality disorder

SubtypeDescriptionPersonality traits
Spineless sadismIncluding avoidantfeaturesInsecure, bogus, and cowardly; venomous dominance and cruelty is counterphobic; weakness counteracted by group support; public swaggering; selects powerless scapegoats.
Tyrannical sadismIncluding negativisticfeaturesRelishes menacing and brutalizing others, forcing them to cower and submit; verbally cutting and scathing, accusatory and destructive; intentionally surly, abusive, inhumane, unmerciful.
Enforcing sadismIncluding compulsivefeaturesHostility sublimated in the “public interest,” cops, “bossy” supervisors, deans, judges; possesses the “right” to be pitiless, merciless, coarse, and barbarous; task is to control and punish, to search out rule breakers.
Explosive sadismIncluding borderlinefeaturesUnpredictably precipitous outbursts and fury; uncontrollable rage and fearsome attacks; feelings of humiliation are pent-up and discharged; subsequently contrite.

No inhibitions, no moral sense, and no social structure

Within the DSM-IV-TR, the criteria for antisocial personality read:
A. There is a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of
others occurring since age 15 years, as indicated by three (or more) of the

Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated
by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest.
2). Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others
for personal profit or pleasure.

  • Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead.
  • Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or
  • Reckless disregard for safety of self or others.
  • Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent
    work behavior or honor financial obligations.
  • Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having
    hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another.
  • The individual is at least age 18 years.
  • There is evidence of Conduct Disorder with onset before age 15 years.
  • The occurrence of antisocial behavior is not exclusively during the course of
    Schizophrenia or a Manic Episode (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).

Although these criteria are often seen in both sociopaths and psychopaths, there
exists an argument that sociopathology, psychopathology and antisocial personality
disorder by themselves are their own individual personality disorders (Hare, Hart &
Harpur, 1991)


Personality and Individual Differences – SSES

The State Self-Esteem Scale (SSES) measures transient feelings of self-worth. The SSES has been hypothsized to possess a number of latent structures, ranging from one to three factors. The present study compared these putative structures along with a new lyhypothe sized bifactor structure (i.e.,one global factor,three sub factors). Results offered greatest support for the bifactor model. A secondary goal was to further assess the nomological network surrounding state self-esteem by examining correlations involving an expanded measure of basic personality (i.e., the HEXACO), Dark Triad traits, and sexual attitudes and behaviors. Ingeneral, these correlations were consistent with the theoretical portrait of state self-esteem and were also consistent with correlations involving trait-level self-esteem. Most notably, however,scores on the SSES consistently correlated negatively with measures of the Dark Triad traits, suggesting a possible theoretical distinction between state- and trait-level self-esteem


The “empty eyes” of a sociopath

A sociopath feels no such tension, since they regard you or me the same way we would regard a bicycle: as a tool to be used. Ergo, no expression. (I’ve seen this up close, and been struck by it.)
Now think of the way your face feels when you’re watching a somewhat boring, late night rerun on TV which is gradually lulling you to sleep. You feel zero social stress, so you’re completely relaxed, and are wearing no expression. At that moment, you, too, have the “blank, empty eyes” of a sociopath.
The difference is, that is not the expression you wear for social situations.
Having said all this, I should also point out that sociopaths are usually consummate actors, and can often feign emotions so convincingly that they appear more heartfelt than those of non-sociopaths who are actually feeling those emotions.
But, if you know what to look for, sociopaths will also always give themselves away in various ways, and one of those ways is that they sometimes wear a completely blank, empty expression.

Adult Children with Cluster B personalities socially abuse and scapegoat parents

There is absolutely nothing noble or “loving” about allowing a toxic adult child to scapegoat and blame you perpetually for their own socially toxic behavior.
