The Evil Eight

I'm sitting here watching Dr. Phil. He's trying to convince this young woman on his show to stay away from the man who almost killed her with a baseball bat, her ex-boyfriend. Dr. Phil explains his theory of "the evil eight", characteristics of people you don't want to be involved with in any sort of relationship.

  1. Arrogant entitlement
  2. Lack empathy
  3. No remorse/guilt
  4. Irresponsible/self-destructive
  5. Thrive on drama
  6. Brag about outsmarting
  7. Short-term relationships
  8. Fantasy world/delusional



  1. I would think that the fact that he tried to kill her with a baseball bat would be enough for her to want to stay away from him. When someone attacks you physically, they'll do it again and again.

  2. You would think. Even at the end of the show she still said how hard it would be to stay away from him.
