The 'victim' however still has some growing up to do. They fail to see or they do see, yet choose to ignore the reality that their circumstances are primarily a result of their own choices. Binge drinking or getting high every night might feel good in the short term, but it does little more than ensure that the necessary life changes keep getting pushed back, and back, and back, etc.

Hi, my mom does all these alternately - its quite confusing, I probably wouldn't have noticed if I didn't grew up with her. It's like shes on an unauthentic autopilot, but I get too exhausted to really feel sorry for her. Also I don't feel it's my job to support or help, especially since she cannot see there is a problem.

She never wants to hear about anything from my childhood that might hurt back then. Some of these are knee-jerk door-slam solutions that will leave you with a repeat of the problem. Often not always a compassionate ear and a brief willingness to listen will get you a long way and may change the repeated outcome. For example, the "victim" generally needs empathy and only 2 minutes of "Wow, that sucks. I'm sorry to hear that".

Try that out. You may not get the victim play for much longer. You may hope to get the compassion yourself one day. If you give them solutions, and no human connection, you're missing the human element. Just like when your wife says, "I've got such a bad headache," she probably wants some attention and a bit of care, rather than, "take some ibuprofen. I think this article over-applies quick-and-dirty solutions, and sometimes those are necessary, but in the long term, I think this article, especially on the website of a psychology magazine, should have a more useful psychological approach that leads to better interactions and lasting positive results.

It makes no allowance at all for context. Most incessant talkers are isolated and so overload with the limited number of people they do meet. It does not examine why we attract these type of people. We all give off signals through our body language, conduct and conversation that attracts others. But instead of being hostile when approached it is far kinder to tell them " i am really sorry but i am having a bad day today and not able to give you the time you deserve".

If it is a relative it can be as simple as explaining that you are too emotionally close to the person to help, but you could help them access professional support. It costs nothing to treat others humanely, and all those traits described occur in people who have been hurt bigstyle emotionally usually as kids or young adults. I have been told I am a kind, compassionate and open person. I hate being judged so I really try not to judge. People thus tend to like me as I accept them as they are and I usually go by the Golden Rule "do unto others as you would have done unto you".

However, now firmly in my 50's I have over the last few years attracted a couple of emotional vampires, AKA female "friends" that I have had to distance myself from. They don't fit firmly into any of the categories although one is a constant talker. I will be in the middle of responding when she find something in the conversation that brings it back to her, she will cut me right off and we're back to "her". I will have to wait patiently until she is done, then state "as I was saying…. She knows she does it but for whatever reason she cannot stop.

It's exhausting so I have had to limit my interactions with her as she is also in her 50s and will most likely not change. The other EV I have decided has some kind of a borderline personality disorder.

She decided we were great friends within a week or two of meeting yup, red flag. She complains so much in an unpleasant way that I feel like her therapist, and I hang up the phone feeling invalidated, unappreciated, and judged as the relationship is one-sided, and non reciprocal. I am now polite when she contacts me but I have stopped contacting her for the most part. She knows she has problems as her other friend confronted her and people who know her have mentioned her issues to me that she is difficult and something is not quite right.

I don't think it is my job to "fix" an adult in her 50's and it is too draining on me to be around her. In my experience with these two women, if a person is emotionally disturbed they will take advantage of one's kindness and compassion and will then repeatedly dump on you and expect you to be there whenever they need to dump. When it gets to the point where I am suffering emotionally, enough is enough. Life is too short and as I said, it is not my job to try to help people who clearly need professional help.

I know someone who is a good, caring person, but she has very bad coping skills and as a result she can be very draining to be around. Like I said, she is a good person but spending too much time with her can suck the life out of you. Well, I guess the common advice of 'let it out you'll feel better' is bullshit then and I should follow through with the suicidal impulses I'm left to dwell on everyday with this CPTSD.

I didnt choose this for myself. And keeping it all in is killing me anyway Many of the clients I work with who struggle with anxiety and depression, and in CBT, one of the most important aspects of cognitive restructuring we do is to focus on evidence, not assumption. Stereotyping, or conflating one negative trait into a whole host of traits we assume they must also have because we have stereotyped them as such, rarely helps. Not only does it encourage further subjective non-evidence-based assumption about others such as what we assume they think about us but it also leads to similar, negative self-judgment such as: 'if I lied once as a child, it makes me a liar, untrustworthy, morally weak and just a horrible person!

I must assume that no one could ever love or even like such a TYPE of person! What about the people who rarely contribute to a conversation and rarely share anything about themselves - the more introverted or shy people? That can be excruciating for a more extroverted person. These people can you leave you feeling frustrated, confused, and tired.

Oh gawd, I just read the breakdown of my ex-BF.

He mastered all of those "special" qualities. Needless to say, I was emotionally drained and left One thing they left out is that these people are often master-manipulators and empaths like myself fall victim to their psychological manipulation. The article says, "Try to spend time with the loving, nurturing people, and learn to set limits with those who drain you. I find this problematic. If someone who exhibits one or more of the above types finds someone else uplifting, they should be encouraged to seek them out, yes?

But by that same advice the uplifting person would be instructed to avoid the 'vampire. For the most part, people w similar views, gather together. Negative people who like to gossip or wallow in misery prefer each others company. Gossipers love to gossip, dramaqueens love drama- they seek eachother out, so no worries there, that they will be alone forever.

I also believe that those high in empathy but w bad judgment and poor experience w people, get caught up with emotional vampires, narcissists etc. That is, untill they eventually realize that not every negative, energy draining person is a "Diamond in the rough". I therefore totally agree that one should set boundaries, even though it may sound tough and un-empathetic, cutting people off etc; after all, we all have a limited amount of energy and should be careful with how we use it.

The "emotional vampire" isn't exactly thinking of how their negativity is affecting the other, right? I do Think, though, that this realization comes later on, when one has tried to be empathetic, kind and giving, to no avail w people who are unable to give. In that perspective, our empathy is misplaced with emotional vampires and we are not using our amotional resources wisely. All that energy should be directed towards people who lift our spirits and those we are more compatible with. I have to disagree with you regarding giving them a few minutes and the wow that sucks. I have been working with a constant talker for over five years.

She had a tragic accident happen that caused the death of a family member. Instead of seeking professional help, she decided it was easier for her to make her coworkers her support system. Now I know what you're thinking the poor woman just had a tragic accident happen. Well let me just tell you this 5 years later and I find myself privy to every little thought that crosses her mind. I find myself trying to get a moment alone and it has become very difficult.

I have tried the polite I really need to get back to work routine. She is relentless she has no empathy when she has something she insists on talking about. It could be as mundane as the weather but more than likely it is useless gossip about our coworkers but prior to that she dumped all of her feelings on me again instead of seeking professional help. Now I do realize it was my fault for not setting the proper boundaries with this woman. She has given so many red flag prior to this tragic accident but as you can see from my screen I had to a very empathetic person.

Basically at this point because of her insistence regarding latching onto me, insisting upon taking up all of my time during the work day at lunch and attempting to call me after work I have run out of sympathy for this woman. She is a user and I believe she is psychologically abusive because she sees the social cues and she ignores them. I told her a couple of months ago I didn't want to be friends with her anymore she wouldn't even listen to what I had to say.

She has now bullied another woman a coworker into taking her home. I don't think I said that correctly the woman the other coworker had her own way home. This woman told her forget that I'm taking you home from now on. The Other Woman said no that's okay I'm fine I don't need a ride she just kept repeating over and over I will take you home I will not take no for an answer.

This lady is crazy and dangerous. Now I'm looking for a different job because I have a degree in a different field, but let me tell you this, she makes me wish I had never given her my phone number.

And when I do get another job I refuse to interact with my co-workers on this level. I will not be giving out my phone if a co-worker needs to contact me they can email me. This woman is a poisonous, mentally ill, antagonistic, divisive, selfish conbartist and I believe has a superiority complex and a sense of entitlement. So again to reiterate a simple five minutes of aw that sucks is all some insidious users require to get in the door as in their foot in the door and it's a wrap for you.

I will end on this note. I have learned a gigantic lesson and I understand that I need to be more discerning and I will never let anybody do this to me again.

When a parent is an emotional vampire, you really don't know what's going on. Once I learned what's going on, the rules, and my rights, things got much better. For me, but not the emotional vampires, haha. It didn't happen overnight, and I read a lot of books, and even got some counseling, but 7 years later, it is so much better!

This may sound insensitive of me, but now that I know what to do, I just don't care what toxic people think anymore. Want to say that everyone here had a good point. So there it is, lots of reading and practice and your brain will eventually get rewired. God bless you all, it really can be done! The mental health profession is long overdue to question sexist terms like "drama queen," which are evocative of the Freudian era when women were branded "neurotic," "hysterical," "histrionic," etc.

I noticed that you also used a female in your example. Men, too, are quite capable of stirring the pot and making much ado about nothing. Psychology Today is just a glossy pop psyc magazine.

Vampires: The Real History

They need catch words like "drama queen" to capture the audience. You wont finds words like that in peer-reviewed journal articles. Havent you noticed that every second PT article is about Narcissists? Those articles are click-bait for the narcissist who cannot help but read and comment about themselves Spare a thought for the guy in the photo.

A Kiss of Blood

Did he know he was posing as an "Emotional Vampire"? He looks like an ordinary guy to me. Yet he is being labelled as the pinup boy for Emotional Vampires. It's a tough thing to do, and a hard lesson to learn I think it's important to recognize that this article seems to have been written from the one size fits all perspective, which is sad since apparently the author has completely ignored that there are reasons that people act these ways that aren't because they're narcissists or bad people.

This article shouldn't be teaching people how to just give up on those who exhibit these traits from the start, but teach them to attempt to understand why someone is behaving these ways and then decide on how to proceed i. Some people exhibit these behaviors because of sudden social exposure after a long period of isolation for example, a constant talker might not know anymore how to behave in a group.

Some people do these things because a job left them without a lot of human contact for months or years or a serious health problem that isn't a "mental health" problem as much as a physical problem has impacted their ability to communicate in "socially acceptable" ways. For example, a brain tumor can cause someone to lose their verbal filter, talk negatively more and try to control conversations.

In many cases, someone with a lot of health problems, for example, might be a "drama" queen because Those "little" problems are just one more horrible thing on top of their poor health. When they have a good day and a problem happens that healthy and more capable people can easily adapt to, they seem to blow it out of proportion and complain and talk a lot because they feel like they have lost control of their lives and they have no outlet because their health has isolated them from family or friends who either don't understand their health problems or feel helpless and stay away from them.

Sometimes they tell co-workers and strangers their woes without even meaning too or because someone actually showed interest in them. I turn to a vampire any time i want to. My husband is diagnosed NPD and exhibits all the above behaviours. I find myself binge eating carbs at night suddenly, this is not normal behaviour for me.

As I detatch from the behaviours, the draining is amplified at night even from other rooms so use of positive binaurals and meditations are used regularly. The draining is suddenly stronger since I cut the chords! Hey, can 1 person show more than 1 type of the above traits? It was eye-opening because it described him so well, however, it was a bit disheartening because there is nothing we can do to change him. We basically have to learn to deal with him even more than we have done throughout the years. After reading the 5 types of energy vampires, I see his traits match with each one of those.

He is all of them, is that possible? He has a lot of childhood traumas that he has been dragging for years, and we are patient with him for that. So Im now focusing in my mom, my brother, and myself so he doesnt drag us even more in his downward spiral. Judith Orloff, M. This vampire is vindictive and insensitive to your feelings.

I quite agree with your commemts that these solutions are unhelpful. But instead of being hostile when approached it is far kinder to tell them " i am really sorry but i am having a bad day today and not able to give you the time you deserve" If it is a relative it can be as simple as explaining that you are too emotionally close to the person to help, but you could help them access professional support. Playing amateur analyst with minimal information costs lives through suicide. I also have noticed that neither of these women have many friends.
