In Episode 004, Dianne reminds us that each psychopath is unique and assuming that there is one way to identify all psychopaths is not only misguided but impossible. In the same line of thinking, one can never be too sure what psychopaths are thinking. Listen as Dianne shares the behaviors and actions of the psychopaths she has interviewed; why they try to flip your charges and accusations against you how the biggest mistake you can make, as a victim, is to tell them you already “know”.

3 Key Points
- Not all psychopaths have the same characteristics – one size does not fit all so always be on guard.
- Never assume you know what a psychopath is thinking or tell them that you “know” about who they are.
- When you start to feel like YOU are the one going crazy; remember, that is part of the psychopath’s plan.
