    Signaling virtuous victimhood as indicators of Dark Triad personalities - PubMed

    Abstract
    We investigate the consequences and predictors of emitting signals of victimhood and virtue. In our first three studies, we show that the virtuous victim signal can facilitate nonreciprocal resource transfer from others to the signaler. Next, we develop and validate a victim signaling scale that we combine with an established measure of virtue signaling to operationalize the virtuous victim construct. We show that individuals with Dark Triad traits-Machiavellianism, Narcissism, Psychopathy-more frequently signal virtuous victimhood, controlling for demographic and socioeconomic variables that are commonly associated with victimization in Western societies. In Study 5, we show that a specific dimension of Machiavellianism-amoral manipulation-and a form of narcissism that reflects a person's belief in their superior prosociality predict more frequent virtuous victim signaling. Studies 3, 4, and 6 test our hypothesis that the frequency of emitting virtuous victim signal predicts a person's willingness to engage in and endorse ethically questionable behaviors, such as lying to earn a bonus, intention to purchase counterfeit products and moral judgments of counterfeiters, and making exaggerated claims about being harmed in an organizational context.

    Yes, they bully others, and afterwards announce that they themselves are the victims. It is more common than you would expect.

    It's more than just common. I have read some other studies on the topic and basically the evidence says that if ANYBODY is running around "signalling" victimhood it is very likely the person is a psychopath. True victims are often depressed, angry, suicidal, etc and they are usually shying away from attention. Consistently seeking attention with the message "I am so vulnerable/abused/unfortunate/etc" is actually a psychopathic trait and there is a proposal to add it to the DSM V as a diagnostic criteria.

    That abstract is a description of the whole SJW/intersectionality/eternal victimhood movement.

    "nonreciprocal resource transfer". Yep. I've been fleeced by these types.

    But everyone is being fleeced. The whole globalist Davos, CFR, WEF, Atlantic Council, SkullnBones batch and their operatives have taken it to a ludicrous level.

    Basically talking about the type of person that gets a lot of mileage out of their sob stories.
    You feel sorry for them and give them resources: money, place to stay, car, etc.
    Eventually you see them for who they really are after their real personality kicks in.
    You won't see these people volunteering, or cleaning messes, or helping others, or taking initiative.
    This is just at the one-to-one level.
    As noted above - when this get socialized into groups it becomes an exponential mess.

    This may be a bit deeper.
