Could you be living next to a serial killer? Often we hear how nice or quiet a serial killer was prior to finding out they had left a trail of bodies behind. What is it about these murderers that drive them to the unthinkable? Well, there are common traits, and here we look at the 10 characteristics most common.
Of course, this is not a pleasant thing to think about, but it may be important to know just in case you come in contact with an individual with these traits. Note, this doesn’t necessarily mean someone with these traits is a serial killer, but you may want to keep an eye on them.
It’s a little scary to say there are a lot of traits shared by serial killers, a couple just missed the list is that they tend to be very smart with above average IQ’s. Also, most serial killers like to start fires. That in itself is not too surprising, but good to know.
Are you living next to a serial killer? Worse, are you raising one? Knowing the common traits isn’t going to answer those questions, but there’s no such thing as too much information, correct? Here are 10 common traits most serial killers posses.
10 Most Are Male
9 Substance Abuse
8 Psychological Abuse
7 Childhood Sexual Stress
4 Encountered Injuries
3 Paraphilias (Fetishes)
2 Bed Wetters
1 Animal Torture
Here’s a clear red flag that should not be taken lightly. Just about every serial killer (99%) admits to cruelty to animals, committing their fantasies on animals, many defenseless. Part of this is due to the neglect of their family who is often oblivious to the fact that their children are committing such acts to animals. Pre-killers are really experimenting and also may be calling out for help so what happens when no one comes to their aid? They continue the torture. Serial killers channel their loneliness and frustrations into hurting the animals, sometimes perfecting an art that later is performed on human victims.
