    It hits me when you said: “He reacts without thinking. He believes ‘She brought it on herself’”

    I used to tell my mom when she returned how he would hit us and beat us up “for no reason.” My brother used to always say indignantly: “She or he was asking for it.” My mom would be too exhausted to litigate and she’d tell me “it takes two to tango” and punish us both, if anything was done at all.

    We would be “punished” by him when we would speak our minds or if we were to go down the freshly iced toboggan run first after he “ordered” us not to. He was always trying to exercise authority he did not have… using fear of violence and actual violence. His “punishment” was always far beyond the invented “crime.” He would never feel guilty, always stating “they were asking for it.“ This became a common argument when other siblings fought as a result. I didn’t realize just how illogical it was, until you just pointed it out again. My older brother was the first to use knives 🔪 on us in efforts to escalate his control beyond his knuckles. Thankfully, no one was actually cut, on purpose. When me and my closest brother got into a standoff and got knives out, we both knew we were in over our heads and quickly adjusted tactics to simply forcing our will on each other with physical strength after they weren’t immediately effective. My sister and another brother were play fighting with a knife one time and she actually did get sliced between her thumb and index finger and required surgery. His influence regarding knives and threats of violence creeped up on us like the selfies you mentioned earlier crept up on normals in the social media craze.

    I didn’t know violence wasn’t normal. I remember when my ex-husband was wrestling me for the keys to our apartment and we had gotten aggressive with each other. He never punched me in the face or anything. Then, when we were getting trained on domestic violence at work, I remember being shocked to learn you can go to jail for touching your partner, even in defense. I asked, but what about just wrestling? Like brother and sister type fighting? Who doesn’t fight at home!? I was not met with laughter. I didn’t realize until that day that all brothers and sisters don’t fight physically. That it isn’t actually normal. We never actually wanted to kill each other as kids although we verbally claimed to in anger many times. We simply wanted justice and to get even. I think we were all infected from my brother, normalizing the behavior.

    Hey HG, anyone asked you if this is a pay-to-read blog yet tonight? 😆 😆

    1. Violetta says:


      He’s too busy garrotting people through their smartphones.

  3. K says:

    I would like to purchase this on Feb. 3rd and I was wondering if it will still be available?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Yes. albeit at a higher price.

      1. K says:

        When does the sale end?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          End of the month K.

          1. K says:

            Excellent, I will hustle up the money before then.

      2. K says:

        To the Reader who gifted me the Understanding Empathy Assistance Package, it really meant a lot to me! Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. After a busy day, I was very surprised to see the e-mail from HG; it put a big smile on my face and I can’t wait to listen to this tonight.

  4. Whitney says:

    Thank you for giving me hope HG. You are the best man I’ve ever known! I think you’re a Magnet Empath.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      You are welcome. I whilst I am magnetic, I am a long way away indeed from being a Magnet Empath.

  5. Whitney says:

    Dear HG 💙 I wanted to tell you something. I got stung by a bee at my sport and I was so surprised by the mens’ reactions. I thought they would laugh. But they instantly acted like it was a big deal and were really sympathetic! You know how I think all men are psychopaths? They weren’t psychopathic! 😮 they were empathetic towards me!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      There are many empathic men out there.

  6. Violetta says:

    MB: I really wish I could stack my replies under the proper thread! Even if I address it to a particular person, it’s not always clear which remark I’m reacting to unless I copy and paste the original, which is kind of a pain.

    MegBotMonic delenda est!

  7. MB says:

    ⭐️ I really wish I could like comments! ⭐️

    1. K says:

      The gravatars are back but I can’t like anything.

      1. MB says:

        I can “like” using the app, but I’m only following a couple of threads. This being one of them. I know I’m missing a lot on the blog. I’d anybody addresses me and I don’t answer, it’s because I’m on the dick pic thread.

  8. Witch says:

    Narc’s don’t see children as children, they are “things” to them like everyone else.
    My mother used to ask me if anyone had sexually abuse me to the point I cried.
    She would also expect me to get involved in her arguments with her boyfriend and defend her.
    When she divorced my step dad, she would mock my sister for getting upset when her dad left after seeing her at the weekend, she was about 5 years old.
    Now shes envious of my nephew being close to his dads side of the family, my nephew is turning 4, so she still sees children as mini-adults or should I say, mini appliances.

  9. Dolores Haze says:

    Does this AP teach to distinguish between emotional and cognitive empathy in others?

    1. HG Tudor says:


      1. Dolores Haze says:

        Okay, I’ll get it.

  10. ANM says:

    Quick question, HG.
    I recently read that Yelp is a manifestation of narcissism. I am not sure if Yelp is a thing I’m Europe, but I am going to assume it is. Would you agree that narcissism and yelp go hand in hand? If so, which type of narcissist would most likely be a Yelper?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      I always thought it was a manifestation of a noise a dog made when somebody treads on it.

  11. Lorelei says:

    Oh my. I recall my father hurling accusations at my mother HG—accusations of having an affair at work when she was gone quite a bit. Her bewildered replies are fresh in my
    memory. I grew up in the twilight zone. Why does a kid even need to hear that? It’s no wonder I’m in this pickle. I would never bring forth such discussions in front of children. This is the instinctive buffer you mention.

    1. K says:

      Instinctive buffer sounds intriguing.

      1. Lorelei says:

        K—I think the internal buffer is something HG coined, but I wrote instinctive. Correct though—it was a twilight zone.

        1. K says:

          This one is on my list. Empathy/empaths play a major role in this dynamic and it is ignored by the APA.

  12. singasongy says:

    this really helped me! The reason this stuff helps me is because it provides an example of what normal looks like. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the crazy I don’t know what is normal any longer. Like I said in the past, I know what is wrong with me for the most part but what I don’t know is how that compares to a normal person’s brain. These clear examples provide me the foundation to base future interactions on.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      I am pleased it was of assistance to you SS.

  14. MB says:

    For those that are confused about Normals, this will clear it up for you. I’m married to a Normal. HG pegged him perfectly. There were times I’ve wondered if maybe he was a MRN due to his very limited empathy for animals and for nearly all people. I know for sure after this assistance package, he is 100% a Normal.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you MB.

      1. Lorelei says:

        But MB—if there were an emergency with an animal he would help and it would be genuine. It’s like it kicks in for normals. I will bring home any stray creature on the street.

        1. MB says:

          Lorelei, actually, no. It doesn’t work like that with him. He has a very strong sense of duty and obligation that would be more likely to kick in than empathy with regard to an animal that needed help. This would come from within him and would be displayed whether or not anybody was watching. (There is no facade as he really does not care what people think of him.) The most prominent trait he has is that of justice. His strongest empathy is for me and then for our children. It does not extend much beyond our immediately family. Not even for his own mother. I will tell you that he exhibits what I’ll call “empathy by proxy”. If something affects me or bothers me, it will bother him also as it relates to making me upset. His reaction is to MY upset, not his own. It would not concern him to run burnt unicorn hide through the shredder, but if I was upset by it, he would stop and comfort me and apologize. Similarly, he loves what I love. He wouldn’t have pets if he lived alone, but since I have them and they are important to me, they are important to him by proxy. The things that upset him personally have to do with justice. He can’t stand for people to “get away” with things they should have to answer for.

          1. Lorelei says:

            Interesting MB. I am not sure what I would do with a non-narcissist around regularly. I don’t really want anyone more than a day a week. Nothing is broken right now that needs fixed! I was thinking of having the rear of my basement aesthetically enhanced. There is a really tall dark contractor that could help with me with it. Someone was selling really cute overalls online I could wear. Desiree would give it five stars if I pair with Sperry shoes.

      2. Lorelei says:

        Is this a similar illustration to the empathy cake? That was an excellent piece.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          Thank you Lorelei, it goes beyond the Empathy Cake

    2. WhoCares says:


      I’ve never been so relieved to hear that some is normal!

      1. WhoCares says:


    3. NarcAngel says:

      You do have a unicorn! (you’re the glitter). I wasn’t convinced they even existed, so thanks for having him tested haha.

      1. MB says:

        NA, I have to think HG calls them normals because they are the most common. The thing that makes them tricky is the continuum. There are empathic normals, narcissistic normals, and then just plain normal normals. I didn’t have him tested with a narc detector although I may do so to make it official. Good idea! My diagnosis is normal based on my learning here and was solidified when listening to this Assistance Package.

  16. WhoCares says:


    Wow, you are on a role!
    Does this particular assistance package shed any light on Contagion empathy?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Hello WC, no it is not about Contagion. It is a key AP to ensure people are able to recognise a narcissist in operation compared to a non-narcissist.

      1. WhoCares says:

        Okay, thank-you.
