“Our power of thought and perception, combined with information technology, has made us both the apex of species and the apex of practicing brutality.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. 
“As a human becomes discouraged, isolated and his social environment increasingly fragments, the higher his probability becomes to lash out against others without provocation.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2006)
“99.99% of all aggressive, violent, abusive and exploitative acts are purposive. The remaining .01%, under Dark Psychology, is the brutal victimization of others without purposive intent or reasonably defined by science or religious dogma.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. 
“For the Information Age assailant, aggressor and psychopath, ICT and cyberspace offer a direct connection and rapid route to the dark side.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. 
“Dark Psychology views all criminal and deviant behavior on a continuum of severity and purposive intent. The theory of iPredator follows the same framework, but involves abuse, assault and victimization using Information and Communications Technology as the delivery system.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. 
“The complexity of deceptive practices psychopaths will employ in order to dominate the target and feed their grandiosity is incomprehensible to anyone who experiences guilt and shame for their transgressions.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Driven by grandiosity or perversion, online psychopaths experience no remorse or guilt from the devastation they cause others. Most online psychopaths do not break the law and live unscathed by law enforcement, fraternal organizations, religious institutions and legal systems.
The art of deception is an engrained instinctual trait in all living organisms for purposes of protection and nourishment. Unfortunately, humanity takes this art and makes it a dangerous and lethal weapon. Online deception is unmatched in its potential to devastate a person, group or nation.
Troll Triad is a construct introducing a three-pronged archetypal model defining groups of online users who engage in defamation of character, slander & libel. Troll Triad also describes how future groups of iPredators will be partitioned into three archetypal segments called Cerebral, Provocateur and the Crier.
Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon other people motivated by criminal and/or deviant drives that lack purpose and general assumptions of instinctual drives and social science theory. All of humanity has this potential to victimize and deceive other humans and living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses.
Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and subjective processing systems that lead to predatory behavior that is antithetical to contemporary understandings of human behavior. Dark Psychology assumes that criminal, deviant and abusive behaviors are purposive and have some rational, goal- oriented motivation 99.99% of the time. It is the remaining .01%, Dark Psychology parts from Adlerian theory and Teleology. Dark Psychology postulates there is a region within the human psyche that enables some people to commit atrocious acts without purpose. In this theory, it has been coined the Dark Singularity.
Dark Psychology posits that all humanity has a reservoir of malevolent intent towards others ranging from minimally obtrusive and fleeting thoughts to pure psychopathic deviant behaviors without any cohesive rationality. This is called the Dark Continuum. Mitigating factors acting as accelerants and/or attractants to approaching the Dark Singularity, and where a person’s heinous actions fall on the Dark Continuum, is what Dark Psychology calls Dark Factor.
Dark Psychology encompasses all that makes us who we are in relationship to our dark side. All cultures, all faiths and all humanity have this proverbial cancer. From the moment we are born to the time of death, there is a side lurking within us all that some have called evil and others have defined as criminal, deviant, and pathological. Dark Psychology introduces a third philosophical construct that views these behaviors different from religious dogmas and contemporary social science theories.
“It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring.“ Alfred Adler
