What are the hidden behaviors of an abusive person?

An abuser has no one to abuse if there is no victim. As a result, the abuser may fall into a series of unsuccessful relationships or seek out another victim as soon as the original one leaves the scenario. This is one of the most misunderstood and concealed characteristics of an abusive individual.

Abusers often change their behavior and attitude toward their victims when no one is looking. They may seem fine while their partner is not present and then go on a binge drink episode or lose their temper without reason when their partner doesn't give them what they want immediately. These are all signs that an abuser is trying to figure out how to take advantage of their partner's absence so they can continue to hurt them when they come back.

Abusers also have a habit of blaming their partners for the problems in their lives. If a woman doesn't meet her husband's expectations in some way, he will verbally or physically attack her until she agrees that she is at fault. Then, he will use this as an excuse to feel sorry for himself and to find someone new to blame his issues on. This cycle will repeat itself over and over again, even after the woman has left him.

Last but not least, abusers love being in control. Whether it's over their partners' social life, their money, or their children, they want to make sure they don't let their partner out-think or out-muscle them.

As a result, abuse has become a way of life for these people. Such individuals internalized a certain interpersonal dynamic, especially the opposing roles of "abuser" and "victim." They learned that if they were not abusive themselves, then others would be. Thus, abuse became a necessary defense against being hurt again.

Abuse is a normal part of life because it is how our brains work. When we are young, our brains are in a state of hyper-vigilance, so anything that threatens our survival will trigger a response to protect us. This response can be seen in children's behavior toward strangers: they often act aggressively toward those who might harm them. As we get older, our brains learn that some situations are too dangerous to behave aggressively toward; thus, we stop showing fear toward others. However, since this mechanism still works when it comes to protecting ourselves from potential abusers, we tend to avoid people who have shown they cannot be trusted.

In addition, research shows that there is a high rate of mental illness in both victims and perpetrators. Abusers tend to suffer from personality disorders such as antisocial personality disorder or borderline personality disorder. These individuals have impaired emotional regulation skills and a lack of moral compass, which causes them to ignore social norms and engage in harmful behaviors.
