People like that also seem unable to accurately articulate their perception which makes things far, far more difficult. Its like battling an entire army of strawmen single-handed. Not even the most adept can defend against those numbers. The wisest know not to try.

Reminds me a little of my Mythological Creatures post :/

Yes. If a person can't even describe their perception of reality, then how can communication even occur? Much less any kind of understanding? Especially traumatic when you care about the person and / or must coordinate with them.

I have yet to objectively decide if there is something clinically wrong with their brains, they have a personality disorder, or if their need to see things a certain way, their need to be right (as they see it) overrides all sense of self-preservation. All of the above?

For my own sanity, when confronted with such as these, I am trying to be compassionate by choosing to believe there is probably a brain malfunction somewhere, and where possible staying as remote as I can when I run across them - physically if possible, but always keeping all of my emotions under lock and key. They seem to feed on them.

Mythological Creatures was a great post, btw! Thanks for providing the link.

Straw men, the classic moving target. Don't forget their close cousin, the red herring.
