48.4% of women and 48.8% of men have experienced at least one psychologically aggressive behavior by an intimate partner

4 in 10 women and 4 in 10 men have experienced at least one form of coercive control by an intimate partner in their lifetime

17.9% of women have experienced a situation where an intimate partner tried to keep them from seeing family and friends

18.7% of women have experienced threats of physical harm by an intimate partner

95% of men who physically abuse their intimate partners also psychologically abuse them

Women who earn 65% or more of their households’ income are more likely to be psychologically abused than women who learn less than 65% of their households’ income.

7 out of 10 psychologically abused women display symptoms of PTSD and/or depression

Women experiencing psychological abuse are significantly more likely to report poor physical and mental health and to have more than 5 physician visits in the last year

Psychological abuse is a stronger predictor of PTSD than physical abuse among women 

"Psychologists agree that there is no cure for narcissistic personality disorder. But right now, there is an estimated 3.4 billion people out there who can be cured.”

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!
