12 Warning Signs That You Are Dealing With An Evil Person

All of us have some form of a sixth sense. This is called our intuition, and the depth of our connection to it depends on how aware you are of that connection. Your intuitive voice can be your guiding light, in terms of knowing whether or not you are dealing with an evil person or someone of a pure heart. So, if you have recently met someone and your “spidey senses” are tingling, Perhaps there is something off about them. But, you are just not sure what. You might have encountered an evil person. There are a few ways that you can identify them, so let’s dive right in. 

Do They Find Other People’s Misfortune Satisfactory?

We all have one of those friends who laugh hysterically when you trip and fall over. This might very well be a sign that the person enjoys your misfortune. You might find someone who likes to talk excitedly about someone else’s failures, or embarrassing moments.

They Might Live in Denial

Someone with ill intentions will have a twisted idea of reality. They will make up their own truths about certain events, and in these cases, there is no point in trying to convince them. 

Do They Twist the Truth?

Denying the truth is one thing, but openly twisting the facts to convince others to take their side is another. People like this will stop at nothing to seem as if they are in favor of the hero of the story.

They Will Lie Compulsively

This one also ties in with living in denial and twisting the truth. An evil person will tell many lies, maybe to ruin your name or bring on your misfortune.

They Might Dislike Animals

Animals are the most empathetic creatures in the world, especially dogs and cats (although that’s arguable). Someone with a mean nature is not going to take kindly to animals because they will either reflect their meanness or open up a sense of guilt for all their wrongdoings and that is too much for them to face. 

They Might Make You Feel Small

All of us have our own desires, interests, passions, and fears. No matter what you are speaking of a mean person with evil spirits who will not support you as a friend who loves you should. If you are talking of your great ideas, they will laugh it off as if it is stupid. You might express what makes you scared, and you get the same response. No matter what, they will try to make you feel small. 

They May be Manipulative

Master manipulators are the hidden evil in this world. Most of the time we do not even notice them in action, which is entirely the point of manipulation. They will make you feel before something that is their own fault, or they might convince you to do something that you either should not be doing, or they should be doing themselves. People with narcissistic tendencies are experts in this field, and they will succeed if you are not aware of their game.

They Show No Remorse

A tell-tale sign of a bad person is that they show no remorse over their actions, meaning they do not regret causing any misfortunes. No matter who and what they hurt in their path, they could not give a flying sh*t.

They Might be a Control Freak

These people are manipulators, so naturally, they have a desire to control everything that goes down. If you are in a relationship with them, they might control the bank accounts, or the people that you see, and when you see them. Generally speaking, they will control it all, but there will come a time when they fall apart at the seams when things do not go according to their plan. 

They Lack Empathy

A person with evil intentions will never be able to put themselves in someone else’s shoes to truly understand their pain. Firstly, they have no desire to, and secondly, they do not understand how to. 

Distract You from Your Deadlines

These people will stop at nothing to prevent your success, even if it means sabotaging your workflow by distracting you when you have some heavy deadlines. They might throw out an insult that dampens your confidence.

They Have Minimal Friends

After reading all of the above warning signs that someone might be evil, it is no wonder that someone like this is a loner. This does not mean you should avoid everyone who struggles to make friends but be wary of it when combined with the above.
