Online Psychopaths | iPsychopath

Online Psychopaths [aka, iPredopaths]: iPredopathy is an Information Age criminology and human consciousness construct replacing the pre-Information Age profiles of sociopathy and psychopathy. iPredopathy is an advanced stage personality disorder describing any adolescent to adult male or female who skillfully uses Information and Communications Technology [ICT] to troll, identify, control and manipulate their human targets. Driven by grandiosity, sexual perversion or perceptual distortion, Online Psychopaths and iPredopaths experience no remorse or shame for the harm they cause others. Just as iPredators, many iPredopaths do not break the law and live unscathed by law enforcement, fraternal organizations, religious institutions and the legal system.

Using cyberspace [aka, Internet, Darknet, Usenet] and electronic devices, Online Psychopaths [aka, iPredopaths] design and implement their criminal, deviant, violent, deceptive and cyberstalking tactics. Their human quarries are  unsuspecting, vulnerable, submissive and internet safety ignorant children, older adults, unprepared businesses and psychologically distressed adults. Unlike the psychologically dysfunctional, developmentally immature and minimal to moderate anti-social personality disordered iPredator, iPredopaths do not experience guilt, remorse, shame or fear before, during or after their offline and online conquests and/or manipulative interpersonal dynamic strategies.

In addition to being devoid of remorse and shame, iPredopaths are extremely grandiose, habitually deceptive and highly dependent upon ICT to fuel, define and justify their dissociative perceptual fantasies. iPredopaths are similar in core beliefs to pre-Information Age psychopaths, but differ in behavioral signatures, stalking methodologies, choice of hunting environments, and psychodynamic faculties. Although at much higher rates of engaging in violent, sadistic and severely depraved behaviors than the general population, most iPredopaths are not homicidal, sexually perverted or overtly violent. In fact, using the persuasive and deceptive power of cyberspace, iPredopaths are capable of embarking upon offline opportunities endeavoring to become heads of state, corporate and community leaders, successful religious zealots and members of the political elite.

Given most cyberspace, social media and mobile device communications are primarily non-physical contact involved, physical interactions may or may not be the iPredopath’s modus operandi. Within the next century, the Online Psychopath will become the predominant form of apex human predator as pre-Information Age psychopaths extinguish, replaced by iPredopaths who are ICT, social media and internet savvy. Lying upon a spectrum of dexterity, proficiency and ICT skills, the segment of iPredopath most difficult to locate, identify and apprehend is Doctus iPredopath. Unlike the less advanced iPredopath, who is reliant upon ICT and cyberspace, Doctus iPredopath is proficient and manipulative in both offline and online environments. Although Doctus iPredopath is habitually driven by perceptual distortions and grandiose fantasies, they are skilled at preventing their grandiosity from becoming a means leading to their identification and apprehension. The theoretical triad of Information Age darkside of human consciousness is iPredator, iPredopath and Doctus iPredopath [IP3].

In addition to being devoid of remorse and shame, iPredopaths are extremely grandiose, habitually deceptive and dependent upon ICT to fuel, define and justify their dissociative perceptual fantasies. iPredopaths are similar in core beliefs to pre-Information Age psychopaths, but differ in behavioral signatures, stalking methodologies, choice of hunting environments, and psychodynamic faculties. Although at much higher rates of engaging in violent, sadistic and severely depraved behaviors than the general population, most iPredopaths are not homicidal, sexually perverted or overtly violent.

Within the next century, the iPredopath will become the predominant form of apex human predator as pre-Information Age psychopaths extinguish replaced by Online Psychopaths [aka, iPredopaths and Doctus iPredopaths] who are ICT and internet savvy.

Doctus iPredopath | Apex Online Psychopaths

Doctus iPredopath [aka, Apex Online Psychopaths]: Doctus iPredopath is an Information Age theoretical criminology concept replacing the most successful of all pre-Information Age psychopaths [aka, traditional psychopathy]. Doctus iPredopaths are apex human predators who are Information and Communications Technology [ICT] skilled, highly intelligent, perceptually sadistic, remorseless and  masters of deception. Doctus iPredopathy defines the most proficient, elusive and skilled online psychopaths. iPredopathy is a severe form of characterological personality disorder defining  ICT skilled or reliant adults who engage in criminal, deviant and habitually deceptive online practices targeting vulnerable men, women, children and unsuspecting groups.

Unlike Online Psychopaths and iPredopaths, Doctus iPredopaths are commanders of identity cloaking, if they decide, combined with being proficient at exploiting and victimizing their human prey in both online and offline environments. Doctus iPredopaths do not fall upon a disorganized and primitive to organized and advanced continuum, as Online Psychopaths do, as their criminal acumen, ICT aptitude and sadistic appetites put them in a league of their own. All Doctus iPredopaths are highly skilled in the iPredator themed construct of Cyberstealth, as well as, the art and science of deception and calculating proficiency in manipulating their human prey. Doctus iPredopaths are capable of cloaking their true modus operandi by initially presenting themselves as harbingers of peace and social awareness.

Doctus iPredopaths [aka, Apex Online Psychopaths] can ascend to levels of becoming pillars of their communities, corporate and organizational leaders, heads of state and persuasive religious zealots. Although all iPredopaths are much more likely to implement sinister, vicious and diabolical online endeavors than iPredators, Doctus iPredopaths and Doctus iPredopath led groups are guaranteed  to methodically plot and implement their fiendish, malignant and deadly fantasies.

Online Psychopath & iPredopath [iP3] Core Assumptions

I. iPredopathy  is a characterological personality disorder describing any male or female who uses Information and Communications Technology [ICT] to engage in criminal, deviant, deceptive or cyberstalking themed behaviors for the purpose of violent, criminal, deviant and deceptive offline interactions. Unlike many iPredators, iPredopaths do not experience guilt, remorse, shame or fear before, during or after their cyber attacks.

II. Although all iPredopaths meet criteria for iPredator, most iPredators are not iPredopaths.

III. To meet criteria for iPredator and iPredopath, online users must meet the three criteria of iPredator  as follows:  1. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT. 2. The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information. 3. A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

IV.  Doctus iPredopath’s are the most elusive, ICT savvy, and criminally versatile within the Online Psychopath and iPredopath Group.

V. Unlike iPredopaths requiring ICT, Doctus iPredopaths are equally adept at targeting and manipulating their victims in online and offline environments.

VI. iPredopath and Doctus iPredopath share similar traits, modus operandi and developmental histories to classic psychopaths and sociopaths, but differ significantly in their preferred arenas for hunting targets and manipulating their support system.

VII. Online Psychopaths [aka, iPredopath & Doctus iPredopath] are more likely to engage in perceptual fantasy and dissociative experiences influenced by their habitual use of Information and Communications Technology.

VIII. Given the “veil of anonymity” afforded to all online users in cyberspace, online psychopaths seek out other online users who will conform and validate their perceptual distortions and bizarre fantasies.

IX. Most, if not all, of an online psychopath’s feelings of grandiosity and narcissism are fueled by Information and Communications Technology.

X. Although the vast majority of online psychopaths do not engage in violence and sexual perversion, for those who do, Information and Communications Technology and social networking sites are the prime tools and arenas used to troll, locate, and ensure physical contact.

XI. Unlike Doctus iPredopaths, iPredopaths are dependent upon Information and Communications Technology to manipulate, deceive and victimize others.

XII.  Just as classic psychopaths, Online Psychopaths & iPredopaths vary in dexterity, typologies, existence of mental illness, intelligence and quantity of victims.

iPredator

iPredator: iPredator is a global conceptual framework replacing pre-Information Age psychological profiles, definitions and interpersonal dynamics of individuals and groups who engage in criminal, harmful, deviant, deceitful or violent activities with Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. Although iPredators primarily use cyberspace [i.e. Internet, Darknet, Usenet, Freenet, etc.] as their primary predatory environment, all electronic and digital devices are their favored tools. Typologies and harmful online activities of iPredators  include cyberbullying, cyberstalking, cyber harassment, internet trolling, cybercrime, online sexual predation & cyber terrorism. The formal definition of iPredator is as follows:

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage.

iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious cyber deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

I. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT. II. The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information. III. A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

Just as pre-Information Age criminals, deviants and aggressors, most iPredators have the capacity to experience remorse, guilt and shame, even if these traits are imperceptible at best. iPredators include the largest segment of humanity who engage in malevolent and deceptive online practices. They can be technologically skilled or unskilled, functional or dysfunctional, destructive or self-destructive and covert or overt in disclosing their identity. A sub-tenet of iPredator is iPredator Bridge defining online users who engage in the same aggressive and harmful online activities as iPredators, but are motivated by distorted beliefs of moral conviction. The definitions of iPredator Bridge & Cyberstealth is as follows:

an-online-psychopath-ipsychopath-cyberstealth-ipredator-michael-nuccitelli-dr-internet-safety-and-dark-psychology-authored-internet-safety-image

iPredator Bridge

iPredator Bridge: iPredator Bridge is a theoretical tenet of iPredator representing the psychological, perceptual & behavioral trajectory of people who use Information and Communications Technology [ICT] to harm others motivate by self-righteousness, moral turpitude, religious/political/philosophical convictions and pro-social perceptual distortions. Not driven by criminal, malevolent or deviant endeavors, iPredator Bridge seeks to define why some people approach the nefarious and malevolent realm of iPredator, decide to proceed, and then continue along a trajectory where their cognitive, affective, behavioral and perceptual actions harm others or societies.

Similar to the iPredator, they are motivated by personal convictions, greed, power, control, narcissism or psychopathology. Different from the iPredator, they have yet to fully engage in criminal/deviant activities using ICT or use complex perceptual distortions to validate the harm they cause. iPredator Bridge investigates why some people draw near to this nefarious and malevolent realm and either proceed in their maladaptive trajectory or cease and desist. Hidden in cyberspace, and through ICT, they contemplate the benefits and detriments, proceed, and then continue a path where their cognitive and perceptual processes are focused upon directly or indirectly harming others. For those who cross this proverbial bridge, they enter a world where their choices are increasingly governed by criminal, deviant, immoral and maladaptive processes.

Although it is assumed all humanity, has residing deep in their psyche, the potential & Dark Psychology for behaving in harmful and malevolent ways they rarely or never activate, ICT and cyberspace offers a direct connection and psychological route to the dark side. Just as ICT and cyberspace is incredibly pro-social and beneficial to humanity, these same technological advancements can lead humanity to diabolical and sinister endeavors. iPredator Bridge is a symbolic representation of the approach, route and initial crossing into the realm of the iPredator. In a rudimentary and abstract way, it is posited that cyberspace, ICT and all future technological advancements, related to information technology, is an extension of the mind and the instinctual drives of the collective brain to replicate itself outside a human organism. Related to this postulate are the theoretical tenets of Carl Jung [1875-1961] and his construct of the Collective Unconscious.

Cyberstealth

Cyberstealth: Cyberstealth is a concept formulated along with iPredator and is a term used to define a method and/or strategy by which iPredators use Information and Communications Technology [ICT] , if they so choose, to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they troll and stalk a target. Cyberstealth is a methodology entrenched in Information Age Deception or also called cyber deception. Given the internet inherently affords everyone anonymity, Cyberstealth, used by iPredators, range from negligible to highly complex and multi-faceted. The rationale for using “stealth” in the suffix of this term, serves to remind ICT users the primary intent fueling iPredators. This intent is to hide their identity by designing false online profiles, identities, covert tactics and methods to ensure their identities remain concealed reducing their probability of identification, apprehension and punishment.

Unlike classic deception used by traditional criminals and deviants, online deception completely relies on the anonymity and “veil of invisibility” available to all ICT users. The primary difference between Information Age deception and Cyberstealth are the activities iPredators and ICT users engage in. In this writer’s construct, Cyberstealth is reserved for iPredators who actively plan a strategy that have criminal, deviant and harmful implications to targeted victims. Information Age deception includes all forms of Cyberstealth, but also includes deceptive practices that do not have elements of crime, defiance or harm against others.

Cyberstealth is a covert method by which iPredators are able to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. When profiling or conducting an investigation of an iPredator, their level of Cyberstealth complexity, digital footprint, victim preferences, ICT skills and behavioral patterns are used to identify who they are.
