Are you the Perfect Target?

I am a fan of the following blog, it seems to offer good resources for those dealing with psycho/socio/narc behavior. I do have another post that talks about being easy prey for a Socio, but I find the following list from Thomas Sheridan to be even more comprehensive. Does this sound like you?

Are You the Perfect Target for a Psychopath?
  • Do you feel incomplete without a ‘soul mate’?
  • Do you hide a sense of low self-esteem or hurt behind an outgoing and confident exterior due to a past emotional trauma that you keep to yourself?
  • Do you believe that there is ‘someone special’ out there just for you and do you let people know what kind of person this would be?
  • Do you believe in ‘love at first sight'?
  • Do you have a large disposable income?
  • Are you generally independent and self-supporting?
  • Do you have any special talent or ability which may bring you fame and wealth one day?
  • Do you think deeply about everyone and everything except yourself?
  • Are you a single parent longing for a completed family?
  • Are you the kind of person who would get out of your car to help an elderly or handicapped person with their groceries?
  • Did you lose a young child, or are you presently estranged from your children due to divorce or do you have a deep-rooted unfulfilled desire to raise and nurture a child of your own?
  • Do you always give other people the benefit of the doubt at first?
  • Are you humbly unaware of your own special talents and abilities?
  • Are you an educated recent immigrant with a degree or professional background and not yet fully aware of all the subtle cultural intricacies of your newly adopted country?
  • Are you living alone in a house in which the mortgage is fully paid off?
  • Do you have a strong desire to love and be loved?
  • Do you have a history of rescuing stray and injured animals?
  • Did you have a parent who was an alcoholic or a drug addict?
  • Are you very sensitive to emotional external stimuli, such as hearing certain music, or viewing a certain art work which can bring you to tears?
  • Were you in the military as a young person?
  • Did one or both of your parents die when you were a child or were you raised in a foster home or orphanage?
  • Were you abused, neglected, unloved by a parent/parents as a child?
  • Are you financially responsible, solvent and secure, such as a stable employment position/regular long-term pay cheque with a government pension/full military pension?
  • Do you believe there is a hidden force which affects your life to some degree and do you embrace this concept?
  • Are you recently widowed, divorced or currently in a difficult relationship?
  • When you are hurt emotionally, is it a deep, intense hurt?


  1. Hi is there anyway else I can contact you via email? Your blogs are very interesting and I can relate as being an "empath" and the attraction to a socio.

  2. Thanks I sent an email a couple days ago
