Dark Psychology

Dark Psychology: Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon other people motivated by criminal and/or deviant drives that lack purpose and general assumptions of instinctual drives and social sciences theory. All of humanity has the potentiality to victimize humans and other living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings, perceptions and subjective processing systems that lead to predatory behavior that is antithetical to contemporary understandings of human behavior.

Dark Psychology assumes that criminal, deviant and abusive behaviors are purposive and have some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time. It is the remaining 1%, Dark Psychology parts from Adlerian theory and Teleology. Dark Psychology encompasses all that makes us who we are in relationship to our dark side. All cultures, faiths and humanity have this proverbial cancer. From the moment we are born to the time of death, there is a side hidden within us that some have called “Evil” and others have defined as criminal, deviant or psychopathic.

Dark Psychology posits there are people who commit these same acts and do so not for power, money, sex, retribution or any other known purpose. They commit horrid acts without a goal. Simplified, their ends do not justify their means. There are people who violate and injure others for the sake of doing so. Within in all of us is this potential. A potential to harm others without cause, explanation, or purpose is the area explored. Dark Psychology assumes this dark potential is incredibly complex and even more difficult to define.

iPredator

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, online child pornography consumer and distributor or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious online deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  • A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  • The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information.
  • 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 include 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.

Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt 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. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is iPredator Victim Intuition [IVI]. An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR [Offline Distress Dictates Online Response], online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.

online-predators-michael nuccitelli-psy.d.-ipredator-oppedohunt-350x356OpPedoHunt is a group of volunteers, professionals and a Google+ community that works to identify and bring to justice online predators and child pornography merchants. OpPedoHunt seeks to help confront the growing segment of online predators who exploit children driven by deviance and financial gain. Online predators include active pedophiles, non-compliant registered sexual offenders, child molesters and the consumers & distributors of child pornography. OpPedoHunt is owned and operated by Anonymous activist, RhinoWarrior Pinkie Pie, this writer, Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. and AlphaTina Connelly. Provided below is a brief overview of OpPedoHunt, their perplexing suspension by Google Plus and the definition of online predation.

On or about Sunday June 14, 2015, Google Plus suspended the OpPedoHunt Google Plus Community stating there was content that breached their Google Plus Content & Conduct Policy. On Monday June 15, 2015, an appeal was submitted with online user content being deleted dating back to June 11th. As the moderators could not find any content breaching their content & conduct policy, identified iPredator users profiles dating back to June 11th were deleted assuming one of these or a combination thereof were the complainants.

Also on Monday June 15, 2015, this writer created a private Google Plus Community called “OpPedoHunt ” preventing identified Pedophiles and iPredators public access to our profiling, reporting and hunting efforts. After approximately a week of waiting for Google to un-suspend OpPedoHunt, that community was deleted and the private OpPedoHunt now serves as their iPredator portal and community.

Provided here is the OpPedoHunt Private link for interested parties, to request joining and iPredator’s internet safety website webpage link. Also provided is OpPedoHunt’s mission statement and the definition of online predation.

Online Predators

Online Predators are defined as adult online users who seek to exploit vulnerable children or adolescents for sexual or other abusive purposes. Online Predators are sexual predators who use Information and Communications Technology and the Internet to locate, target and victimize minors. Although online sexual predation occurs between adult online users, the underage minor child is the primary target.

The typology of iPredator that is categorized in Online Predators has a variety of different terms used to describe the same patterns and motivations for their abuse. Historically, those who are not familiar with the profiles of sexual predators, pedophiles and child molesters tend to view them as being easily identified and incompetent. Although the vast majority of sexual predators are neighbors, peers, relatives or mentors, the “veil of anonymity” in cyberspace makes accurate assailant identification a daunting task.

Common forums Online Predators use to target children include chat rooms, instant messaging or social networking sites for the purpose of flirting with and meeting minors for illicit sexual experiences. Online Predators often are motivated to manipulate or “groom” a minor with the ultimate goal of meeting and engaging in sexual activity, despite knowing they are engaging in illegal activities. In the simplest definition, “grooming” is best described as a sexual predator’s premeditated method of manipulating a child with the result being sexually themed.

When Offline Distress Influences Online Interactions

ipredator-inc.-cyber-attack-prevention-michael-nuccitelli-psy.d.-800x624

For forensic psychology students and enthusiasts interested in learning about the dark side of cyberspace, this writer recently finished his cybercriminal target paper titled, “Offline Distress Dictates Online Response [ODDOR]”. ODDOR is a concept addressing how an online user’s offline attitudes and daily functioning have a direct impact upon their online functioning. To visit the ODDOR webpage and download the full PDF paper, click on the hyperlink link text here, scroll to the base of page and click on the red PDF button. Offered here is a brief definition of ODDOR.

IPREDATOR ODDOR PAGE

ODDOR: Offline Distress Dictates Online Response (ODDOR) is a sub-tenet of iPredator, which posits that offline psychological functioning directly influences one’s online interactions. Whether someone is an online assailant, cyber attack target or both, ODDOR does not discriminate. ODDOR postulates that temporary and long-standing psychological states can significantly taint an online user’s behaviors and interpretations.

Perceptually isolated, obliviousness of the existence of ODDOR and experiencing atypical affective and cognitive states increases the probability of being targeted by an online assailant. In addition being at a greater risk of being cyber attacked, ODDOR influences an online user to partake in destructive and self-destructive online activities.

JonBenet Ramsey-Her Last Christmas & Cold Case Homicide

jonbenet-ramsey-the-last-christmas-of-jonbenet-ramsey-laurence-l.-smith-1024 x 512

JonBenet Ramsey-Cold Case Homicide Q & A

In early April 2015, I had the honor of interviewing my friend and associate, Laurence L. Smith, M.S. about his recently published book addressing the unsolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey in 1996. “The Last Christmas of JonBenet Ramsey” is a methodical and exceptional manuscript chronicling the last days of JonBenet and the investigation that followed. Laurence Smith and his profiling skills truly speaks to the Dark Psychology of human consciousness. Pasted in Q & A format are several question and answers from my interview.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. | Given the amount of material and books written about the JonBenet Ramsey case, how does your book become a definitive account of this case, including the naming of her killer?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | A great question. This case demanded a multi-dimensional perspective, especially psychologically. All of the published material written or spoken via the media about this case involved people who were journalists, novelists, law enforcement personnel, and others not having a sufficient psychology background to grasp the psycho-dynamics of the case to make an astute analysis. Other than the early publication of Dr. Cyril Wecht’s book, few resources were comprehensive.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. | Because police and media members often zero in one or two so-called ‘persons of interest’, how wide of a net did you cast to include as many viable suspects as possible?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | I devoted an entire chapter to placing a hypothetical intruder in a scenario to see how viable a suspect he should be. I also devote an entire chapter to placing various psychopathology criminal types in scenarios to see if any appear to be the most viable or likely killer of JonBenet.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. | How about Ramsey family members, how in-depth did you go in examining their viability for being responsible for JonBenet’s death?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | John, Patsy, along with sons Burke, and John Andrew Ramsey Jr. were exhaustively analyzed for any possible role in her death, with a definitive finding for each. (Daughter, Melinda Ramsey, was in Georgia working as a nurse at the time of JonBenet’s death.)

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. | Because of the crime scene and forensics there were many in the media and in Boulder law enforcement who believed JonBenet’s murder was either a botched robbery, kidnapping, or the result of a pedophile. How did you reconcile this seeming dilemma?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | Realizing the contradictory actions, if any of these criminal types had been involved, I came to see that this was a non-focused crime and that the murder of JonBenet was essentially a cover-up.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy. D. | How did you arrive at a motive for JonBenet’s murder?

Laurence Smith, M.S. | There wasn’t really a motive as one generally views a motive in a murder case, but rather a murder out of perceived necessity as a cover-up.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy. D. | How long do think the entire killing scenario was?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | Creating a more realistic time-line than the one police were working with, I believe at least 3 or 4 hours were consumed in the overall crime, including its staging and writing of the innocuously worded ransom letter.

jonbenet-ramsey-who-actually-murdered-jonbenet-dark-psychology-590 x 443

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy. D. | Re-known FBI profiler John Douglas told the media and television viewers that he believed the crime scene appeared staged. At what point did you formulate a definitive analysis as to what type of criminal type the individual was who murdered JonBenet?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | Even prior to Mr. Douglas’s statement I had come to see the crime as one that was amateurishly staged and carried out, as if it were a seminal occurrence for this type of crime by the perpetrator, thus eliminating career criminal types or individuals having a criminal record.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy. D. | In boldly stating that your book is a definitive account of who murdered JonBenet how can you state that so unequivocally?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | I believe that once one reads my book and sees the effort made to thoroughly examine suspects and suspect types who remotely could be considered viable as the murderer, overwhelming evidentiary material and circumstances will clearly show who the murderer is.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy. D. | Given that there is no statute of limitations on murder and this case remaining officially open, do you ever see this murder case being resolved and officially closed?

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. | Unfortunately Dr., this case will remain open interminably, lest someone associated with the murderer or has direct knowledge of the murderous events makes an official statement naming the murderer, which is more than highly unlikely.

Laurence L. Smith, M.S.

Laurence L. Smith, M.S. is a past member of American Psychotherapy Association who now devotes his time to consulting or testifying in major criminal trials. He obtained his M.S. Degree in criminal psychology from the University of Chicago in 1996 and has since been in the psychology milieu in various capacities, including psychotherapist, clinician, counselor, and corporate consultant.

“The Last Christmas of JonBenet Ramsey” is Laurence L. Smith’s initial foray into authoring a non-fiction true crime book. This book purports to show how 6-year old celebrity child, JonBenet Ramsey, came to be murdered on Christmas day, 1996 in Boulder, Colorado. In the process, naming whom her killer was in a case where her murder heretofore officially remains unsolved. This aptly titled book is a definitive account of how situational circumstances led to her death by her killer. A murder described by Laurence L. Smith, M.S. as a non-focused killing.

Dark Psychology (Blog Version)

 Dark Psychology-Blog Version by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

dark-psychology-blog-version-michael-nuccitelli-psy.d.-ipredator-ipredator-inc.

Dark Psychology includes all criminal and deviant behaviors committed upon other innocent victims. Although many people are intrigued by the discussion of the serial killer and psychopath, the vast majority of predators hunting human prey are not engaged in murder or sexual deviance. If this writer were to make an estimate, he would put the percentage of human predators at roughly 70% of the total pool of people who are out to victimize others, but who are not involved in murder or sexual deviance. The remaining 30% are the most dangerous because they seek physical human contact.

This writer has constructed what he believes is a sound theory of the human predator. Dark Psychology assumes what lives within all of us is a potential reservoir of violent malicious energy. All human aggressive and hostile dysfunctional behavior lies on a continuum of purposiveness defined by this writer as the Dark Continuum. Most of these behaviors lie somewhere on the Dark Continuum with most being in the category of subtle, mild and with fleeting thoughts and minor shortfalls. The reality though is Dark Psychology is a universal phenomenon, and there is no dispute all of us, at times in our lives, have had at least thoughts of sheer violence and predatory fantasies.

The difference is the vast majority of humanity has never acted upon those thoughts. The reason is that we have a low Dark Factor equation compared to the predators. The Dark Factor is the realm, place and potential that exists in all of us and is part of the human condition. This concept is one of the more abstract terms of Dark Psychology, because it is so hard to illustrate via the written expression. For criminal and deviant people, their Dark Factor is elevated; influencing them to move in a direction towards what many define as evil and this writer defines as a trajectory accelerating towards the Dark Singularity.

“It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring.” Alfred Adler [1870-1937]

Alfred Adler’s theories were a powerful influence in this writer’s creation of Dark Psychology. He strongly adheres to Adler’s philosophy that behavior is purposive. The only slight philosophical divergence from Adler is this writer’s belief that all behavior is 99% purposive. He holds the remaining 1% as being within the realm of the black hole of the Dark Singularity. The black hole of the singularity is the area of evil that the predator comes close to, but never reaches.

dark-psychology-blog-version-michael-nuccitelli-psy.d.-ipredator-ipredator-inc.

Dark Singularity

The Dark Singularity is the potential in all of us to behave as a predator, hunting human prey completely and utterly devoid of purpose. This writer also strongly subscribes to Adler’s theory of subjective processing. Dark Psychology and the human predator have a highly distorted perceptual filtering mechanism. For them, it is no longer about being compassionate and kind. Their subjective processing colors all of their thoughts, emotions and perceptions with blackness and venom.

At some point in the development of the human predator, he/she actuates his thoughts and feelings and starts down the long road of what contemporary criminologist call psychopathy. Within time, their subjective processing filter becomes divorced from experiencing remorse. They come to perceive that the victimization of others is deserved by those who are too naive to protect themselves.

dark-psychology-blog-version-michael-nuccitelli-psy.d.-ipredator-ipredator-inc.

Dark Factor

Given that, a large portion of human development surrounds social acceptance, the predator somehow moves into the arena where his/her Dark Factor becomes an active force fueling an urge for the destruction of others. Once touched by the realm of psychopathy, he has entered the point of no return. Just as light cannot escape a black hole, the human predator cannot escape the path towards the Dark Singularity. Interviews conducted by forensic profilers and research scientists with convicted notorious psychopaths have proven the theory of accelerated movement towards the Dark Singularity.

Some believe, this accelerated trajectory to victimize others is more similar to what has been called a compulsive dependency theory. Although this writer agrees with the compulsive dependency hypothesis of increased needs by human predators to victimize others, Dark Psychology assumes these needs can become needless and less purposive.

Not only have psychopaths divulged a perception of experiencing a sense that their evil acts accelerate in frequency, but also their experience of acting as predator takes on an addictive quality. Using cosmology once again as a metaphor for Dark Psychology, the closer matter approaches a black hole, the faster mass accelerates and can never swing away from the black hole’s awesome gravity. Interviews with psychopaths almost exactly mimic this universal law of astrophysics.

As society moves further into what is defined as the Information Age filled with digital technology and cyberspace, Dark Psychology and its impact on humanity will be tested at greater rates. Given the veil of anonymity cyberspace offers all humanity, the question remains is if the nefarious aspects living within all of us will recognize there is a realm of free reign called the digital universe. Dark Psychology is the study of the chasm within us all, which only the few enter, and even fewer ever exit. Without a natural predator to cause humans to rally, we prey upon one another.

“The Information Age technocentric concept of being “connected” is a paradox of disconnection causing us to lose control of our instinctual drives for social cohesion, allegiance and selflessness. As our dependency upon Information and Communications Technology (ICT) grows, spreading throughout our collective human consciousness, the less we care for our neighbors and the more we delude ourselves into thinking that online connections are far more valuable than reality based relationships.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2014)
