Narcissistic Abuse Affects Over 158 Million People in the U.S.
Source: Psych Central article written by Bree Bonchay
“There are 304 million persons in the U.S. One in 25 people will have the disorders associated with ‘no conscience’ which include anti-social personality disorder, sociopath, and psychopath."
1 in 25
Three hundred and four million divided by 25 = 12.16 million people with no conscience.
Each anti-social/psychopath will have approximately five partners who will be negatively affected by their pathology = 60.8 million people!”
If you apply the same formula to the world population using the current population estimate of 7.5 billion, are you ready for this?
3.3% of 7.5 billion = 247,500,000 people with antisocial personality disorder
6% of 7.5 billion= 450,000,000 people with narcissistic personality disorder
247,500,000 + 450,000,000 = 697,500,000 people who lack empathy, or are without a conscience. If each of those people narcissistically abuse just five people during their lives, the tally of potential damage affects over 3.4 billion people!
