What goes on in the mind of a sex offender?
I will summarize what I read:
- Offenders believe they are "unique" or different from others, to the point of thinking that they are above the law and that the rules do not apply to them.
- There is no remorse. Offenders do not take responsibility for their actions, instead they misplace blame or justify their actions.
- The sexual offender puts others down to make himself feel superior.
- Offender manipulate others by playing on their emotions or by causing fights or drama between people. They will feign "interest" in your well-being and will show pretend "genuine" concern (oxymoron?).
- Sexual offenders can keep their behavior separate from their real life. For example, the offender has a preference of some type?
- Shows little concern for their own actions and will downplay them.
- Offenders will appear to be "helpless" or will "act persecuted" in order to continue manipulating victims to side with them.
- They play the "victim" role well.
- Offenders enjoy watching others get upset. They appear to crave that type of drama.
- Attitudes of self-righteousness and think they are right all the time. They perceive themselves as superior to others.
- Sexual offenders are extremely possessive and treats others as possessions or objects.
