    Psychology Tip: To test if your friend is a narcissist, tell them you have a live squirrel inside your chest. Now *pay close attention* because their next reaction will tell you everything. If they have a hopeful look in their eye, it means they are a squirrel, and they think the squirrel in your chest might be their long lost sister. But if they have a hungry look in their eye, *they are a cannibal squirrel* and you need to flee as fast as you can

      When you add “dark” in front of any other field, it sounds silly. Like “dark engineering” or “dark agriculture.” Imagine being like “hey! What are you studying?” and they respond with “oh! I’m majoring in dark environmental science with a minor in dark geology.”

    The funniest thing about that one woman who was like "here's how you spot a narcissist" is that if she actually bothered to research NPD even a little bit she'd find out it's a traumagenic mental disorder. That people get via repetitive childhood trauma due to a certain dysfunctional/abusive parenting style and it's often comorbid with CPTSD, just like BPD. And not something you can just "tell" somebody has or use in place of ways to describe somebody who's egotistical, arrogant or an asshole.
    That and it's also hilarious that she's implying all people with NPD are abusive or going to manipulate you. Way to stigmatize an already very demonized mental disorder lol.

      @Entrapta Ty, I try lol
      I love learning about various mental disorders and actual psychology/how the mind works.
      I'm getting sick and tired of people using narcissistic as a synonym for abusive, toxic or power hungry or whatever other negative trait somebody could have since it's stupid and doesn't make sense to me hahah. Most people don't label somebody with BPD as an awful person right off the bat (most of the time, I happen to have it) but in comparison to that and in my experience as well as through a lot of observation, people are often very prone to labelling somebody with NPD as abusive and self-centered just because they have the disorder or have traits of it without any other reason.
      It infuriates me to no goddamn end lmfao.

    • C T H U L H U

      The funny thing is, if *you* looked up narcissism, you'd realise it's a seperate thing from NPD.
      You're making a mistake in assuming "narcissist" *means* NPD, and it doesn't. You're not wrong about what NPD is, but its existence as a personality disorder comes from the much simpler and less serious "narcissism", a preoccupation with one self. The name itself came from Narcissus, a mythical man from a roman poem who would reject women's advances before being cursed by the gods to be in love with his own reflection, hence "narcissist" means someone who is overly obsessed with one self and one's needs, often at the expense of others, just like how you can be "obsessive" and not have OCD, how you can be "depressed" but not have "major depressive disorder". The real irony is, your problem is based on over-applying psychology and DSM-V to assume people are talking about a personality disorder when they're talking about a personality trait, to complain about someone not looking up NPD despite the fact they weren't even talking about it.
      "You can't use it in place of ways to describe somebody who's egotistical, arrogant or an asshole" yeah, agreed, some people overuse narcissist to describe people they don't like, but "egotistical" is actually a synonym for narcissistic. You CAN in fact, use narcissist to describe somebody who has an obsession or admiration of themselves, like self-absorbed, conceited, etc because that is the literal definition. Not every word that is used in psychology is exclusive to psychology, and assuming some tiktoker who thinks you should trap people with games to see if they're narcissists or have NPD (cause doing either is nonsense and useless) is also someone who would ever do enough research to use narcissist vs NPD properly is a you problem. Clearly they have 0 idea of what they're talking about, you want them to at the very least be more accurate in using terms they don't understand so they have, 0.5 idea of what they're talking about?
      And I only say this, because this overly educational view also trivialises and changes words, like how "anorexia", a symptom of low/no appetite, became short hand for "anorexia nervosa" a mental disorder where people avoid eating, so that now, anorexia is useless because you have to specify lack of appetite anyway, because people assume it means AN.
      "here's some advice if you ever feel anxious-"
      "UMMM I highly doubt you have the necessary qualifications to be giving people advice on how to manage symptoms of Generalised Anxiety Disorder, sweaty 💅"

      @C T H U L H U Holy shit I feel stupid hahah, thanks for correcting me. This actually clears up a lot and oh man I really wish I looked at that more.
      Nobody's ever really told me this nor have I seen anything about it so this is very relieving to hear. That is some funny as hell irony on my part and I'll fully admit that you were right in stating that my problem was that I thought NPD means narcissist when upon looking up narcissism and actually researching the things you said you're totally right in that NPD wasn't being talked about, it's not used in the same way and I was wrong for thinking that. You bring up a *lot* of good points I failed to see or think about and it's very nice to have it pointed out, and to reflect on my views about this as well as potentially other things I could be wrong about as a result of learning a bit more. I kind of assumed that since narcissism is a trait of NPD that people weren't using the word correctly and that is so stupid of me to have though for (now) obvious reasons. I'm face-palming at myself hard hah.
      Once again thank you, and I'm very sorry for not making sense beforehand. I'm very glad to have learned from this. ^^

About 10 min later I mentioned my boyfriend and the dude got mad "If you have a boyfriend why do you laugh at my jokeS?!". I had to explain to him that I laughed because it was funny, not a pleasant conversation to have! We were in our mid 20s, still blows my mind how aggressive he became

    As a psychology major, it drives me crazy how much pop-psych has poisoned most people's concept of how the human mind works.

Actual psychology is so fascinating that I struggle to see why people need to make up things to talk about.

    I'm a narcissist and oh my God, the narcissist one had me laughing. Who wouldn't want to see a private jet? And my face was in shock at the "he couldn't even afford one in his dreams." 😂 What? Oh my God. You just insulted your father, why? I love (sarcastically) seeing people talk about narcissists who have NO idea. I'm used to the stigma and ableism and demonization so I just try to laugh at it and that one was absolutely ridiculous. What even? 😂
    Edit: also thanks for not demonizing NPD. Even in leftist spaces, i am met with the ableism surrounding narcissism and "psychopathy/sociopathy" (aspd) and it often feels like i just have to accept that it's just always going to be a thing and specific spaces for NPD and personality disorder folks in general are the only real safe spaces. So it's nice to see a tiktok about narcissism and have it actually be treated as harmful because it is! Im so tired of hearing how harmful, evil, manipulative, abusive, soulless, empty I am cause I was a neglected child and now crave attention and adoration and praise. Most of my narcissism just comes out in video games anyway. But that's just a rant cause it's been really and over the past month or so and it eats away at me a lot. So just thanks, Chad Chad. It means a lot to us NPD folks :3

      I'm in the plural community, which is connected to the dissociative identity disorder community, and it's wild learning about how people have actually SCARED their therapist... simply by mentioning they have alters or are plural or whatever. I actually had that with a therapist, who would intentionally avoid talking to me about my plurality. Only when I got a therapist who was experienced in dissociative disorders did I get proper help and respect, but even therapists trained in those disorders can be cold towards anyone they think might be "dangerous" based on stereotypes. There are a lot of people who have BPD and psychosis in the community too.
      This is all to say, it's horrifying how easy it is for people to throw your personhood aside simply because media, stereotypes, and lack of compassion say you MIGHT be dangerous. When really, we're people who need help and might even be happy with what makes us "strange" but want help with the parts of it that make it a disorder.
      People really treat mental illnesses like warning signs of how awful a person may be instead of thinking about what trauma they may have gone through to develop that illness. Or for those born with neurodivergent, thinking they'll automatically be a pain in the ass. You can have any kind of mental illness and still be varying levels of a "bad" person.

    The last tiktok in the dark psychology part about the hot and cold technique is an actual manipulation tactic called lovebombing, which is used by abusers in relationships or sometimes even friendships. The abuser is abusive towards the victim, however when they try leaving the relationship or start getting cold they'll start showering them with love and affection in order to keep them which creates an unhealthy definition of love in the victims mind.

      To clarify, I'm specifically referring to the term 'dark psychology' as propagated through these clout-chasing 'influencers' as opposed to actual techniques of psychological manipulation, which are referred to by actual professionals as 'psychological manipulation', not 'dark psychology' because they aren't sorcerers and neither is your toxic ex.

Looking back, I can see how it would be a bit challenging to understand some parts of it without a basic psych course under your belt. However, the advice that can be generated from the content would be amazing for almost anyone. I honestly asked my professor "why don't we teach this in high school?"

    I'm really into psychology and maybe I'll even be able to study it one day. I find tiktok content like this so infuriating, like yeah, I guess it's funny, but also the app is used by young teenagers and kids who don't have all the information and they're gonna start believing that crap. Not to mention that so many of it demonizes people with "scary" illnesses, like no, just because someone has a personality disorder doesn't automatically mean they're a bad person. But there's also the other extreme of people claiming you don't need to get treatment because you're already perfect and everyone should accept you as you are. Which sounds nice but also if someone struggles with any illness, telling them to not seek help can never end well

    2. Patience is a virtue. Having a lot of patience is key in becoming a kindhearted individual.
    3. Be genuinely nice to people, even if they respond with hostility.
    4. Know your limits. Understand that you cannot help everyone. You do what you can, not things you can’t.

    These dark psychology facts really just validating my distrust and confusion with guys I was with in the past. One in particular was so damaging. I feel dumb but I really fell for the one where they are super sweet and loving and then completely pull away and pretend like ur not there and do it again and again. At a very vulnerable state I fell for this and it was confusing and painful. I grew to hate the guy and eventually cut things off and he still randomly tries to message me claiming he really cares about me. It’s sick. I found myself disgusted with him and feeling like he was so fake but never feeling like I could be sure. Just this overwhelming feeling I could not ignore. Because he didn’t do or say anything directly to make me feel that way it was all in the behavior. He chose it words very carefully so I couldn’t really call him out. When I tried to ask about things it was always. That wasn’t my intention and stuff but I felt like it was. He let it slip once saying he loved “teasing” me by playing with my emotions and easily manipulating me. I always wondered why he smiled so much when I was crying, upset or sad or saying sorry. I wondered why he always wanted me to tell him all the painful things and confide in him but seemed to be taking notes more then trying to help. Why he would laugh and smile the only time I saw a genuine emotion in him. And he smiled again when he said that but it was like almost a scary smile. It made me feel….unsettled and disturbed he said he was just joking after but he wasn’t. It stuck with me and he was good at making me think it was in my head and my own insecurities. I won’t lie he had me in a desperate place for a while. When I started to heal from the trauma I was dealing with I realized something slowly every time I saw him I felt more and more unhappy. I always felt unhappy around him but it was like I became more aware of it because I wasn’t consumed in my own insecurities anymore. I wasn’t blaming myself anymore. Every time I saw him I couldn’t wait to be away from him his energy was so toxic, I found him annoying overbearing and unattractive, I was extremely bored and I wondered what the fuck did I ever see in him? The last time I saw him he couldn’t handle me at all. He started to get nervous just being around me because I wasn’t letting him manipulate me and I wasn’t scared to speak my truth anymore regardless if he liked it, I left like 30 mins into seeing him out of shear boredom and at the time I actually puttied him. I realized how insecure he actually was. And I felt bad for him for a long time after and tried to be friends but he wouldn’t stop trying to play those old games. Always asking me about my life right away to gauge my emotional state and waiting for an opening. It was so gross and really pathetic. I couldn’t believe I once thought I loved him. Dark psychology is real and honestly people use it alot more then u think. People need to make U insecure and keep u down because they are to insecure to be what you deserve. Or to just treat u right. If they can convince you I deserve less u will never realize U deserve better. Never stay where u are unhappy. Never let a person mess with your mental health. Be weary of people who just come around when ur down. We can’t think clearly when we’re in a bad place. We don’t see people for who they really are. Our senses can become dulled by pain, fear, or desperation. And There’s a lot of vultures out there.

    Y'know, in middle school (long before tiktok existed) I not only developed my lifelong hyperfixation with human psychology, but I also unconsciously started using a "tactic" to hopefully make my crushes like me more. I realized, much later, that what I was doing was not only CREEPY AS HELL but, in some cases, might be considered emotional manipulation and STALKING. Now, did it work? I mean, my fiance of six years hasn't left me despite the fact that I admitted to learning his schedule, where his classes were, and what path he took to walk to class, so id call it a massive success.

    • Ethan Siltala
      Ethan Siltala Month ago

      And just in case anyone is curious, the "tactic" was 1. Inserting myself into their friend group, becoming friends with their friends in an attempt to make a greater excuse to spend more time with them. 2. Go out of my way to interact with them regularly, and make my presence known, but also make it as natural as possible. (aka adjusting my own walk to class to line up with theirs, learning where they sit for lunch, etc.) and 3. Actually just becoming friends with them, because I thought this was all completely normal and not obsessive behavior whatsoever. The goal was essentially to lead them right to the point of us being close friends, and then just.... waiting. Hoping they'd ask me out or something.

I was thinking like “Damn, he must be really traumatized by other people”. Guess what, not one of my friends stole from me. Also, three years have passed, and me and my girlfriend still living together being in a loving relationship. I guess straight men don’t believe in normal human interactions.

    • koltrast
      koltrast 3 months ago +298

      ⁠@occultsupport I think it’s because a majority of the examples used in this video are for men trying to get women, and in a lot of those videos, they refer to women as ‘females’ way more than theyre calling dudes ‘males’. This is the same for a lot of those dumb dating advice videos too.
      But referring to women as ‘females’ is seen as rude because that word gives a connotation that you think lesser of them, like they’re animals. They do mean the same thing, but again, different words for things can have negative or positive connotation that put a spin on things.
      Calling men ‘males’ can also have that same negative connotation, but it isn’t being pointed out as much because it simply isn’t being used to describe men by people like the examples in this video more than they are calling women ‘females’, so people are less inclined to point it out in the first place.
      Sorry for the essay, I just like explaining things and I hope you understood.

    the inclusion of the "beep boop boop bop" song you used at 6:36 that Mr. Krabs hears and requests on the radio in the episode of SB when Bob and Squidward are convinced he's a robot was a very pleasant surprise. . . I find something new to love about your channel with each video. thanks Chad Chad, even if that's not your real name

    So I’m a real life therapist (licensed and everything) and also a very online younger millennial. The landscape of mental health and psychology discourse online is so interesting. Like, yes, anxiety is a lot more normalized now. Fantastic. People are more aware of neurodivergence. Great. But also not everyone you meet has borderline or narcissistic personality disorder and not everything is directly explainable by a psychology “fact”. Like the only thing that’s true about people is that nothing is universally true.

      It's people who have no idea what the DSM is explaining to other people who also have no idea what the DSM is how to diagnose a complete stranger based off one manufactured interaction.

      As someone with diagnosed BPD but doing a lot better these days, it's gross to see how crucified people with it are. It's one of the most emotionally torturous disorders and although there's plenty of people who don't get help and let it ruin their and others lives, there's lots of us doing work to get help and be better people and control emotions better.

    The main problem with that first 'dark psychology' one is that you're not making them love you, you're giving them an obsession that doesn't need to happen. When you shower someone with praise and affection and then suddenly stop and cut all communication with them when they do something you don't like even slightly and then return after depriving them of that after they apologise for something they may not have even done and keep repeating that cycle you are creating an obsession not infatuation. I don't doubt that most people on tiktok are completely unaware of the difference between love and obsession so allow me to lay it out for you: love can usually be described as a desire to be close to and spend time near another human usually due to physical appearance or behaviour such as compliments, a soft voice, low aggression levels and wider shoulders/hips (depending on sexual orientation). Love comes from a place of curiosity, happiness and familiarity. Obsessions on the other hand are for the most part, repetitive thoughts or actions focusing on (usually) a routine or set of actions but can spread to apply to people or objects. Failure to appease the subject of obsession often results in feelings or thoughts of paranoia, anxiety, dread and a hesitancy to do things until the obsession is indulged. For a few people these obsessions control and persuade their lives and are incredibly frequent. In situations like these we refer to it as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (side note I could go on a whole rant as to why I hate when people say they have OCD as an excuse for perfectionism). For a majority of cases of obsession an individuals quality of life and functionality is greatly hindered and leads to increased rates of anxiety and depression. Where as love does nothing of the sort. Doing anything like what's described in the first 'dark psychology' tiktok is not only ethically and morally wrong but down right illegal. If you made it this far, I hope I helped you understand the difference between these two and thank you for reading. ^-^

    Chad humorously critiques TikTok's pseudo-psychology trends in a video. They dissects various "facts" and tricks, revealing their lack of credibility and questionable advice. Chad uses humor to encourage critical thinking and responsible information sharing, highlighting the absurdity of many TikTok psychology trends.

    The "find the hidden narcissist" rhetoric in media is getting super frustrating. I see it not just on social media, but my news feed. Like they live among us and only through a series of clues and tricks they can be revealed, like they're vampires or something. I'm not saying narcissists don't exist, but this idea that they are everywhere, waiting to strike is not only icky, but discrediting to people who genuinely live with this personality disorder.

    My psych professor told us that “everyone is a psychologist, because we all see behavior being performed daily and can make inferences based on our experience. What separates the psychologist from the researcher is the mitigation of biases and putting aside that personal experience to evaluate and test a phenomenon.”

    Theres a story of a woman whose bf told her she smells..lots of times to the point she get self conscious. She did shower, wear perfumes etc etc but he still said she smells. So finally she confronted him and was like, my friends and family said i smell fine, i shower daily, etc etc and if she smells to him lets just break up. The guy finally confessed his dad told him to do that because if the girl think shes smelly she wont break up with him cuz she wont have confidence to find someone else
    Guys...DONT do this. This is mental. This isnt dark psychology, its borderline abusive

    • Shuur Monsters

      idk about "borderline" to be honest. i think it pretty soundly qualifies as manipulative at the very best, and as emotional abuse at worst.
      either way i feel like calling it abusive is appropriate.
