I have included compiled psychological research to bring a practical reality to the exploration of the negative ego that is tangible. In many cases we can say that a psychopath may be possessed and in the clutches of dark spirit control, however the purpose of this exercise is to learn factually how to identify such behaviors and stop feeding them. As we go through the practical checklists to learn how to identify behaviors of egotism, narcissism and psychopathy, we can clearly see a range of unchecked ego behaviors impacting many people on the planet. These are the three main stages of promoting, distributing and reinforcing the stages of negative ego behaviors in the AD strategy which grows from egotism all the way into psychopathy and psychotic behavior. We may notice that people near us exhibit some range of these Negative Ego behaviors or many of these negative ego behaviors. Obviously the more dysfunctional behaviors one sees on the checklist when evaluating behavior, would be very informative to the level of severity the person has allowed themselves to be controlled through their negative ego. A serious consequence of psychopathy is no genuine feeling of remorse or empathy.We can apply this checklist to ourselves to inquire what may trigger our own negative ego to rear up from unhealed pain. Or we may apply the checklist for better discernment when making choices of where we place our trust and what we value as a model of strengthening our character. If we observe a person acting out an excessive amount of these behaviors near to us, we may choose to not support them in their delusions. As we build better and practical ways of discerning trustworthiness and competency, we also gain confidence to build stronger intuition in such matters, where the checklist is not required.
As is made clear here in these checklists, the more severe the Negative Ego dysfunction the more potentially disconnected the person is from their heart, intuition, self-awareness and spiritual source. This immediately gives one a gauge to measure what level a person can be trusted, no matter what words they may be speaking.In the severe stages of narcissism and psychopathy, the veneer of seduction, charisma and “mimicry” of empathic reactions that are geared for manipulation to serve one’s egocentric needs, and can be seen much more clearly over time. It is very common for people that base their leadership or authority on controlling behaviors and tyrannical principles, to aggressively manipulate others by creating a façade of charisma from mimicking what they have found people want to hear from their wounded ego parts. Many people do not want to hear or know the truth; they want to be lulled to sleep by fantasy delusions.This is the tough part. We have to ask if we are able to seek the honest factual truth of behavioral interactions or have people feed us lies that are flattering or comfortable for our wounded ego parts.Otherwise we reinforce the delusion in the person/circumstance and we become enablers, allowing them to continue to perpetrate deceptions in the group through their own self-deception. Promoting and enabling delusions leads to pathological thinking and spreads a fabricated reality through “false impressions”. This false impression is the spin on perceptions that are designed to serve the agenda of the Negative Ego, Narcissistic or psychopathic personality.
Psychopathy – The Third and Final Stages of Insanity
Psychopathy as a personality disorder is characterized by enduring antisocial behavior, Lack of Empathy and remorse, and disinhibited or bold behavior. Behaviorialists suggest that different conceptions of psychopathy emphasize three main observable characteristics to varying degrees:
1. Boldness. Low fear including stress-tolerance, toleration of unfamiliarity and danger, and high self-confidence and social (alpha) assertiveness. Fearless dominance. May correspond to differences in the amygdala and other neurological systems associated with fear responses.
2. Disinhibition: Poor impulse control including problems with planning and foresight, lacking affect and urge control, demand for immediate gratification, and poor behavioral restraints. Impulsive antisociality. May correspond to impairments in frontal lobe systems that are involved in such control.
3. Meanness: Lacking empathy and close attachments with others, disdain of close attachments, use of cruelty to gain empowerment, exploitative tendencies, defiance of authority, and destructive excitement seeking. Coldheartedness (black hearted) and meanness may possibly be caused by either high boldness or high disinhibition (a lack of restraint) combined with an adverse environment.

- Untruthfulness and insincerity
- Lack of remorse and shame

Lack of Empathy
Narcissistic Personalities and Psychopaths have little to no remorse for the harm, destruction or killing they cause any person place or thing. This is described as a Lack of Empathy, which is characterized by the inability to feel, experience emotional states, or discern what another life form may be feeling. Lack of Empathy is a mutation in the DNA of a species that has been disconnected from its Soul-Spirit, and thus suffers from genetic damage and Soul Fragmentation.
