    I swear, you can practically spot the adult who was badly abused on a silent B&W security camera video.  I think the abusive personality has can spot them from a hundred yards away.

    •  I agree with this, Bernardpliers. (0+ / 0-)

      And the abused kid simply doesn't have the knowledge of early warming signs, as they grew up having their boundaries bashed every day.

      I have heard people talk about repetition compulsion, or "feeling comfortable" with mistreatment.  It just doesn't feel true or honest to me.  I think it is simply a matter of not having the knowledge of where the boundaries need to be.  And yeah, abusers look for that.  Know how to manipulate and feed on that.
