Diagnosed sociopath breaks down how she intimidates people

Diagnosed sociopath breaks down how she intimidates people

The woman says it's great for her in the workplace

A diagnosed sociopath has broken down how she intimidates people, you know, just in case you were looking for tips.

Content creator Kanika Batra is a former Miss Universe and Miss World finalist living in Sydney, Australia.

But much of her content focuses on living with ‘highly stigmatised personality disorders’ as a diagnosed high functioning sociopath.

Her YouTube Shorts explain all sorts about what life is like for her, from getting jobs to dating.

In the video titled: “Here’s How I Intimidate People,” she explains well, exactly that.

An antisocial personality disorder, symptoms of being a ‘sociopath’ can include a disregard for others, a lack of empathy and dishonest behaviour, according to Healthline.

The site also says a sociopath will often: “Break rules or laws, behave aggressively or impulsively, feel little guilt for harm they cause others and use manipulation, deceit, and controlling behaviour.”

In her video, Batra says intimidating people ‘really works in a business setting’ for her.

She explains: “The nicer and more bubbly you are, the more information they give you.

“Befriend everyone you can, especially the higher ups. Retain the information they give you and make sure you save it.”

I mean so far, these all seem like pretty common and well, decent things to do at work. Although I guess I’m not nice to my boss just to try and intimidate them rather than it being the right thing to do.

“If someone challenges you, how lucky is that you have information you can use against them?” she adds.

Ah, yes, there it is. That sounds more like the ‘sociopath’ part.

Another method she uses is ‘eye contact’.

Batra continues: “Holding eye contact is a sign of dominance.”

She even advises practicing ‘it on the street’ and ‘people will always break’. Seems like a bit of a creepy way to walk to the shops.

And the creator goes on to claim: “Mike Tyson utilised this before every match.”

Her next method is ‘triangulating’.

“Since you’ve already befriended everybody,” she explains. “Who’s going to believe this other person?”

Yeah, I mean, I’m not sure these are the best practices to use in your workplace but if you are a ‘diagnosed sociopath’ I guess you can’t help it.

One user commented: “Or just be honest and friendly and have no useless drama in your lfie.”

But another put: “Respect the transparency.”

As others said it was textbook ‘manipulative behaviour’.
