Persecutor

Someone operating from a "Persecutor View of Reality" stance will often think of himself or herself as being persecuted, in other words, being a Victim.

The Persecutor sees himself as Rescuing himself or someone else from the behavior of some other person.

Thus, the Persecutor may think of himself as a Rescuer of a third party, actually Persecuting the person whom he considers to be making that third party a Victim.

People behaving as Persecutors deep inside likely view themselves as having low worth and as a result attempt to Rescue themselves through a controlling, judging, and authoritian style.

VRP: You'd better get this done immediately! And don't mess up! more Green: Our team leader has set the goal for this group to complete this effort in two weeks rather than the four weeks spent on the previous project. more
