Have you ever watched someone expertly weave a tale of lies and manipulation so skillfully that you could not believe how they were able to do so without a single inkling of guilt? Have you watched on as someone seemed to speak with a silver tongue, almost magically compelling those around them to do seemingly anything?
When they finish, no matter how much they hurt the other party or how selfish their actions, they do not seem to care one bit.
The havoc they wreak is wholly justifiable to them simply because they can get what they want. They can do this because they utilize dark psychology. Many people recognize that a comprehensive understanding of psychology can be essential when you are trying to sway others, but when you are willing to utilize dark psychology, you take things one step further.
Those who utilize dark psychology can put aside their feelings. They can keep from feeling guilty as they go against the best interest of the people involved. They can tap into the darkness within humanity with ease-the darkness that exists within every person that gives them the potential to be a predator. While this potential is within every individual, surprisingly few ever give in to its influence. Very few people legitimately want to be defined by their propensity for dark behavior-they can keep that darkness in check.
Those who have the potential to use dark psychology are often so charismatic, so enticing, that the victims that feel drawn to them, much like a moth to a flame, do not see the toxicity that lies within the very interactions with these people. They will seek to get closer and closer to the enigmatic user of dark psychology without understanding why they feel compelled to do so until they realize they are burning.
It seeks to understand the motivations behind such heinous actions, as well as the various techniques that those who utilize dark psychology tend to favor. Dark psychology analyzes each of these concepts, recognizing the inherent power involved in the act of controlling someone else. It requires a comprehensive understanding of the inner workings of the human mind to control another person, whether through manipulation or persuasion, and that understanding is what those who study dark psychology seeks to gain.
Those who have a natural tendency toward utilizing the art of dark psychology, typically characterized by the dark triad of narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy, seem to have this understanding of how people work inherently-they do not have to spend the time actively studying the reactions of those around them and following their instincts. They may not even be aware of the tactics they are using at the moment, simply following their instincts deeper and deeper into the darkness within them without remorse or guilt for the collateral damage they cause along their way.
While dark psychology is inherently controlling of other people simply because it either sways or forces someone to do something that the controller wants, it is not necessarily evil. It is entirely possible to dip your toe into the darkness within you, tapping into the ability to understand and persuade others without causing harm.
