The Evil 8 & Nafarious 15 – Dr. Phil


Dr. Phil “Life Code” From his book ‘Life Code’.

Evil 8 (signs)
1.) Arrogant Entitlement
2.) Lack of Empathy
3.) No Remorse
4.) Irresponsible/Self-Destructive
5.) Thrive on Drama
6.) Brag about Outsmarting
7.) Short-Term Relationships
8.) Fantasy World/Delusional

Nefarious 15 (More Signs)
1.) Infiltrate your life
2.) Create Conspiratorial Conflict
3.) Depend on Approval
4.) Build a file
5.) Misdirect and Obfuscate (Obfuscation (or beclouding) is the hiding of intended meaning in communication, making communication confusing, wilfully ambiguous, and harder to interpret.)
6.) Blame Others
7.) Lie
8.) Frauds/Cheaters
9.) Isolate Victims
10.) Abuse Authority
11.) Press Hot buttons
12.) Revisionist of History
13.) Two-faced/Gossip
14.) Paranoid
15.) Passive-Aggressive

This list explains the similarities between narcissists/ sociopaths/ psychopaths. And I am glad Dr Phil rightly terms this – evil.

I agree with this list and sadly, it explains the similarities between all those who have abused/harmed me. And it even explains a woman I recently worked out is a narcissist. They all fit many of the behaviours and personality traits.

Dr. Phil also speaks continually, about not giving people ‘the benefit of the doubt’, because this is very unwise and potentially dangerous. Due to the amount of disordered/toxic people out there.

It is wisdom to not ignore potential issues in people. It is wisdom to sit back and watch their behaviour over time, to discern who they are and what their motivations are.


Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  2. cognitive dissonance – when we want to see that someone is doing good, but they are doing BAD, but dressed up as Churchlady- and we are in Denial…..causes mental confusion, and makes us think and feel there is something wrong with US. Finally figured that out….GASLIGHTING IS EVIL.

  3. TIME is all we have. You are so fortunate to be aware of many issues…..I am dealing with my adult son now. Things I missed when he was young, because I was Unaware…..in the twilight zone. I sent him to the best schools, but that does not replace being abandoned by his father.. Now I am doing Double Time with him…..trying to repair the damage done in his life.
