Dark Psychology: What Is It & Why Empaths Need to Learn About It

Dark Psychology is the study of human behaviour that is imbued with the intention of causing harm on another human being just to reap some sort of perceived benefit. Knowing more about dark psychology can help us prevent being exploited or manipulated by those who are not keen on helping or caring about us. If you are an empath or a highly sensitive person, you might benefit from this knowledge. According to Richard Campbell, author of the book Dark Psychology, human predators are usually good at hiding their true core and blending in with others. This is probably what makes it so difficult to spot them, and take the necessary measures to protect ourselves.
