Unlike most Disney movies, villains in real life don’t come with the telltale sign of lime green smoke or dark and witchy clothing. They look just like everyone else and sometimes even come across as nice, innocent people. Breaking through their smiling exterior is not easy.
While it is hard to figure out who is truly black-hearted and who isn’t at first glance, after spending some time with them, their influence on you will start to show. Pay attention and cut ties with people who make you feel this way.
These 14 red flag signs will warn you about a bad person.
Those who are truly evil will have certain aims in mind and they’ll do whatever it takes to fulfill them. They’ll expertly manipulate you for their own gains and won’t care even if you get hurt in the process.
2. Playing With Your Mind
Not only will they hurt you, but they’ll also weave the narrative in such a way that even you will start thinking that whatever happened was your own fault. Their deceptions will be so good that you will start doubting your own sanity.
Only caring about their own goals, you can never count on them for anything because they won’t help you if it doesn’t serve their purpose. They’ll betray you in an instant if that’s to their advantage.
4. Warped Perception Of Life
If something doesn’t go according to their plan, they’ll refuse to even accept that it happened. And they’re convincing enough to make you think that their twisted perception of events is the truth.
5. Centre Of The Universe
Everything revolves around them and the whole world exists only to serve their purposes. They perceive themselves as better than the rest and accordingly, they are entitled to the service of everyone else.
6. Attention Seekers
The wicked love having the spotlight on them. They treat everyone else as their inferiors and they expect others to look up to them without pointing out any of their mistakes.
As pathological liars, they’ll keep weaving a web of lies even when it is not necessary. Each lie leads to another till the web becomes too intricate for them to untangle.
8. Two Faced
An evil person will behave in different ways with different people in order to squeeze as much as they can out of each person. They’ll never show you their real self and they’ll leave as soon as they’ve sucked you dry.
9. No Apologies
It takes a miracle to get them to even admit they’re wrong to let alone apologize. Their feelings of superiority make them believe that they never make mistakes and it’s always someone else’s fault so it won’t even cross their minds to say sorry.
10. Telling Tall Tales
You’ll never get the actual version of the facts from them. All their narratives will be one-sided and constructed with alternate facts so that you will sympathize with them and help them out.
11. Only Their Time Is Important
They’ll never respect you or your time. All they care about is fulfilling their own aims and it doesn’t matter if they are wasting your time by making you do things for them.
12. Lack Of Remorse
Since they don’t believe they’re ever wrong, they never feel remorse for anything they’ve done. No matter how much they might have hurt you or someone else, they won’t care as long as they gained something by doing so.
13. Hiding Facts
Along with twisting facts, they’ll never tell you the full version of things. This ensures that they can maintain their facade.
14. No Responsibility
Evil people are never bothered about the effects their actions might have on others. They’ll ensure that you do rash and risky things if it is important to them. As long as their aims are fulfilled your resulting condition is not their concern.
