Recently, we began looking into Female psychopathy. The results were surprising. We had thought that you just look for the same thing in women as is seen in male psychopaths. Not so! We learned that women psychopaths preferentially utilize the “poor pitiful me, I was/am abused” pity ploy to entrap their victims. They may set themselves up as activists of various kinds to display their “compassion” and utilize this as the platform for launching their “I was abused so I know how it feels” games. Altogether an interesting revelation.
