What does it mean to say a person is retaliatory?

If you are discussing anyone socially competitive who is prone to developing revenge obsessions, understand you are dealing with a personality type that is likely to be toxic to you, to your health, and to your social as well as psychological well being.

Retaliatory people tend to be Cluster B people. Having the ability to develop a retaliatory agenda against another human or peer group over a perceived (real or imaginary slight) tends to be based in a complex emotional and genetic mix of someone’s genetic social instincts and how they have been socially nurtured — meaning a person prone to developing a vendetta agenda.

People who are retaliatory are the types who are constantly trying to one-up or to put down people who they feel rival themselves socially for public, private, or romantic attention.

Compulsively prone to comparing themselves to others in such a way that they themselves appear to believe they are due royal treatment, putting forward a form of a Collapsed Narcissist agenda.

Collapsed Narcissist personality types and NLP dysfunction occurs when a child is groomed to have unreasonable expectations of himself or herself that they feel should be provided by society rather than earned.

They are the Golden Child the parent dotes on as an only child who gets super angry when child number two is born.

When a parent dotes on one child, then takes away affection and special attention from an offspring they taught to expect to be the center of attention and the best of the best, they create the initial root cause of the nurtured narcissistic, codependent-thinking groomed child or adult child’s vice.

Retaliatory people want to be the Prima Donna at all times and resent anyone or anything that the irrationally self-absorbed and control-seeking person perceives to be a Narcissistic Rival.

A person targeted by a Cluster B individual for social neglect, mistreatment, mocking, or more serious forms of physical, emotional, psychological, and or spiritual abuse is the person who the Abuser seeks to retaliate against for blocking the spotlight in some way from them.

The person targeted for abuse by someone retaliatory need not have ever harmed the predator or even know what they have done or said to be targeted — the irrational person simply needs to decide that the person or peer group who they choose to harm or to deride is their personal profoundly objectified personal property to functionally harm for that person’s delight.

Delight is a wonderful way to remember what someone who is retaliatory does. They delight in causing other people harm — stealing light while harming their own inner glow… as every ugly emotion indulged in a hedonistic way actually causes the chemical release of bloodlusting adrenaline that eventually freezes neuroplasticity and starts to do serious physical damage to the anatomical as well as the sensory brain.

Saying a person is retaliatory is a major red flag about that person as well as about the speaker.

The person noting someone they have interacted with is retaliatory tells you they have more than likely had an encounter with someone Malignant and Cluster B while they themselves are likely in need of ongoing social and emotional support to deal with the fear and exposure to trauma if the person who has been targeted for harm or to be hunted as a human is likely to cause a crisis of social and spiritual confidence that ultimately is likely to lead to the formation of C-PTSD in the victim.

Realizing if a person, family, or peer group has been targeted for social harm and abuse by someone who is retaliatory due to a vendetta agenda is the most difficult type of social assault to endure.

Victims of violent crime and persistent themes of Domestic Violence — especially in High Conflict Divorce cases or when someone has testified as a witness, victim of violent crime, or has acted as an informant — can save or greatly improve the quality of victims’ lives.

The faster community members and close personal friends take the focus off the Abuser and the Abuser’s social demands and claims and pro-social emotional and mental health service support is given to anyone exposed to trauma the lower the long term cost to things like health, the person’s financial portfolio, and to their overall social health and emotions.

Pretending it takes two to tango for one person to lie to or about another or to initiate physical violence is the fastest way to ensure Abusers thrive while victims of social predators suffer, wither, and risk being left to die alone on the vine without any form of justice or community care shown to them during their life.

Realizing that trauma impacts the health of the body as well as dents DNA in ways that impact the herd is one of the fastest ways to get the brain to realize enabling retaliatory rather than constructive people in life is devolutionary.

Retaliatory people are the physical personality types who tend to have rage issues, grandiose concepts of self, a nurtured resentment of anyone who gets attention but them, and a desire to control other people’s emotions.
