You see we live in a highly corrupted world and even though there are tons of good people, there are tons of bad people that we will interact with throughout our life. And in this article, I'm going to give you 7 obvious signs that someone is completely evil. If you understand this article, it will change the direction of your life.

It will help you to learn about the toxic people that you've been surrounded by, and it will help you to make better decisions that will move you into better positions. So please listen up the first sign that someone is evil is through.

1) Their Words:

People will often admit that they're evil through the worst, that they speak.A lot of times this might be in the form of gossip. Sometimes we might hear them criticizing. Sometimes we might even hear excessive cursing.


There are so many indications that people will give themselves away through their words, and if you understand the words that they say and also the worst that they don't say, then you can play the game of life successfully.
The next time you hear someone speak. I want you to ask yourself, are they telling the truth? Or are they telling some lies? Sometimes people are very subtle with their manipulation. They're subtle with their deception. They're subtle with their criticism.
But you can't let that get past you. You have to understand exactly what they're saying and exactly what they mean, and ask yourself, is this said in a spirit of love? or in a spirit of hate?

A lot of people are harboring anger and insecurities that come out when they speak, and if you fully hear what they're saying, then you'll know exactly what kind of person you are dealing with, The second major sign that someone is evil is.

2) Enjoying Your Pain:

Do you know someone who enjoys other people's pain, I mean do you know someone who laughs at your misfortune they may take advantage of your pain or get some kind of pleasure out of your suffering this is a sign you're dealing with an evil person because this behavior demonstrates a complete lack of empathy?

Empathy is your ability to walk in another person's shoes if someone experiences pain or hardship you can imagine how hard their life must be, and you sympathize with their pain, but someone without empathy makes no effort to understand others in fact they actively enhance or increase others pain through criticism cruelty or even physical aggression if you know someone who lacks empathy they may be a bad person,

But they may also be something else a lack of empathy is one of the most commonly cited elements of psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by egotistical thoughts antisocial behavior and of course a lack of empathy not all psychopaths are bad or evil people no many learn to live normal lives but when a psychopath enjoys the pain of others well they can become evil and dangerous, a dangerous lack of empathy takes many shapes, but maybe they stab you in the back by betraying your trust maybe they leave you out to dry when you're counting on them the most,

Maybe they use your secrets to tear you down and control your life in all of these situations an evil person is happily throwing salt into your wound “Ouch” so don't spend your time with people who enjoy hurting you or other people because that lack of empathy means you're dealing with an evil person.

3) Avoiding Responsibility:

Does your friend avoid responsibility? Do they pass the blame when anything goes wrong?

This avoidance and irresponsible behavior is a common signs of a selfish evil personality just think about the last time you messed up, maybe you made a careless? mistake at work how did you feel afterward guilty embarrassed apologetic after messing up good people take responsibility for their mistakes,

They take steps to redeem themselves, but evil people do exactly the opposite if an evil person makes a mistake they avoid responsibility altogether in their minds they can't do anything wrong they can't be the one at fault, so they freely blame and attack others for their own mistakes they don't feel guilty they don't feel embarrassed or apologetic they make no effort to redeem themselves, and they don't apologize to the people who were affected by their mistake instead they play the victim they act like someone else did this to them, and they avoid responsibility altogether.

4) Cruelty To Animals:

Do you know someone who's mean to animals? Maybe they mistreat their own pets?, or they push away your pets every time they try to say hello?

Some people like animals more than others some adore pets cuddling and talking to them like their people others acknowledge their animals but largely give them space but only a select few people ignore or senselessly bully animals this behavior is a common sign of something evil inside them so why does bullying animals make you evil well because animals are living things just like we are we connect with them in the same way we connect with other human beings just imagine playing with your dog after a long day at work or listening to your cat purr on your lap both of these encounters relieve our stress release feel-good hormones in the brain, and they make you feel loved.
When someone is cruel to animals, they show a disregard for the living that cruelty.
Demonstrate a nonexistent connection to other living organisms in other words this person lacks the empathy to identify with another living breathing creature, or maybe they're just too egotistical to care either way pay attention when someone you know is cruel to animals whether this person is hurting their dog or throwing rocks at squirrels animal cruelty is a telltale sign of something evil.

5) Profitable Deception:

Everyone is told a couple of white lies in their lives sometimes you lie to spare someone's feelings or save them from pain, other times you do it to get yourself out of trouble or avoid unnecessary conflict.

But evil people don't lie for the benefit of others instead they lie actively and often to benefit themselves deception and manipulation are common signs of a psychopathic personality.

In fact deception and manipulation are common in every corner of the dark triad the dark triad describes three major personality disorders narcissism Machiavellian and psychopathy each disorder is often associated with violent or evil people in different ways.

All three disorders in the dark triad struggle to consider the suffering of others psychopaths rarely develop the emotional skills to understand another person's hardships narcissists think so highly of themselves they may believe they have the right to manipulate others and Machiavellian selfishness motivates people to manipulate deceive and lie on a regular basis someone who lies consistently for their own personal gain.

May fall somewhere on this dangerous spectrum they may struggle with empathy they may think far too highly of themselves they may be too self-absorbed to understand the pitfalls of manipulation but either way someone who shamelessly takes advantage of others may be an evil person.

6) External Warnings:

Have you ever been warned that a partner or friend is a bad person?Has anyone ever told you to keep your distance?

Even though this person seems great on the outside here's the biggest problem with many of these vindictive personality types they're great at covering their tracks.

They can pretend for long periods of time to be your best friend or perfect match they pretend to care listen and guard your trust but when it benefits them the most.

These same people will stab you in the back in many cases we become infatuated with this person's best qualities so we nor the red flags we let their lies go unpunished

We allow them to manipulate or control us we swallow their criticisms and let it affect us internally evil people are easy to recognize on the outside when you're unattached and uninterested but on the inside it's difficult to tell the difference so listen to what other people are trying to tell you if this person is doing something evil to you, they've likely done evil things before pay attention to the input of friends family and even their past partners if everybody raves about how great and considerate this person is then you probably have nothing to worry about but if other people warn you about getting too close then you may be dealing with someone who's worse than you realize.

7) Hypocrisy:

There are so many hypocritical people who will never practice what they preach. They'll tell you about all the good advice that you should take, but they don't take it themselves. You must be aware of the people.


Who lives a contradicting life. There are so many people trying to give advice they're trying to speak their truth, but they are living so far below their potential that you would never see it unless you fully studied their case. I want you to take a deeper look into these people's lives, but I don't want you to judge them, but I want you to ask, are they exhibiting the thoughts?, the results?, the manifestations, the mindset of their support groups?
