For forensic psychology students and enthusiasts interested in learning about the dark side of cyberspace, this writer recently finished his cybercriminal target paper titled, “Offline Distress Dictates Online Response [ODDOR]”. ODDOR is a concept addressing how an online user’s offline attitudes and daily functioning have a direct impact upon their online functioning.

Offered here is a brief definition of ODDOR.
ODDOR: Offline Distress Dictates Online Response (ODDOR) is a sub-tenet of iPredator, which posits that offline psychological functioning directly influences one’s online interactions. Whether someone is an online assailant, cyber attack target or both, ODDOR does not discriminate. ODDOR postulates that temporary and long-standing psychological states can significantly taint an online user’s behaviors and interpretations.
Perceptually isolated, obliviousness of the existence of ODDOR and experiencing atypical affective and cognitive states increases the probability of being targeted by an online assailant. In addition being at a greater risk of being cyber attacked, ODDOR influences an online user to partake in destructive and self-destructive online activities.
