    Following the recent school shooting, the national media once again focuses on the dangerous nature of guns - because focusing on the dangerous nature of psychopaths may cause the nation to recognize the same traits in many media figures, activists, and political leaders they support.

    While the recent psychopathic shooter is no longer a menace, a number of much more dangerous, experienced psychopathic manipulators still remains at large.

    As a public service, we are posting the following 30 characteristics of the psychopath, a.k.a. manipulator, or perverse narcissist (to qualify, at least 14 items from this list must be present as permanent traits).

    If you have recently seen someone who matches this description, immediately report the time, place, and the circumstances in the comments below.

    3. remains vague in the communication of his claims, needs, feelings, and opinions;

    4. often gives vague answers to straight questions;

    5. changes opinion, behavior and feelings depending on people and situations;

    6. makes use of logical arguments to camouflage claims;

    7. wants to make others believe that they have to be perfect, that they can never change their mind, that they have to know everything and have to respond immediately to claims and questions;

    8. discredits the qualifications, competence, and personality of others; criticizes, despises and condemns without giving that impression;

    9. delivers messages through intermediaries (phone instead of choosing the face-to-face, leave written notes).

    10. sows discord and creates distrust and suspicion, divides to be better able to rule;

    11. positions himself as a victim to elicit compassion (disability, hostile environment, work overload, etc);

    12. ignores or does not honor requests even if he promises they will be taken care of;

    13. takes advantage of other people's moral and ethical principles (humanity, racism, compassion) to serve his own needs;

    15. suddenly changes the subject during a conversation;

    16. avoids or flees relationships and togetherness;

    17. capitalizes on the ignorance of others and creates an impression of his own superiority;

    18. lies as a habitual strategy;

    19. uses falsehoods "for the greater good";

    20. is egocentric;

    21. can be jealous;

    22. does not bear criticism and denies facts;

    23. does not care for the rights, opinions and wishes of others;

    24. often gives commands or demands action at the very last moment;

    25. his speech seems logical or coherent, while his attitudes, actions, or lifestyle speak of the opposite;

    26. uses flattery to please us, makes gifts or suddenly starts to pamper us.

    27. makes us feel trapped;

    28. effective in achieving own goals, but at the expense of others;

    29. makes us do things we wouldn't do of our own accord;

    30. is the subject of other people's conversations all the time, even when he is not present.

    I appreciate that the OP wants the world to beware of psychopaths... but its not so simple.

    Two words, Ted Bundy, was an intelligent good looking man, he was also clever and charming.

    Lists can help, I give you that, but they can not stop all these sick people, sadly.

    I don't know what the answer is...that is, if there is one.

    The list, in part, is applicable to anyone walking this earth. The trick is determine what the motives for such behavior are. Some people are lawyers, doctors and clergymen who fall in the category o0f being human and subject to the frailties we all have.

    Lists do not apply to the Ted Bundys of this world.

    What does a list means to them?

    Nothing.

    The killings go on .... lists or no lists sadly.

    Politicians have so many of those traits.
