Thank you Charlie, Mark, Kidney, Allen, Lewis, Ron, Jim, Kevin, and Andy for your replies. these are certainly around us all, and yes, unfortunately, are in us as well. Knowing is half the battle, lol, welcome to the other half.

Charlie, authority figures can become obsessed with power, and they can "Lord it over" students, I feel your pain bro, good plan! :-D

Mark, yeah, the combos are great, with a sandwich, but not in this "menu". These people are miserable and project that misery on us, good to know we can see them for who they are.., you want fries with that?

Kidneythis, you are wise to understand a person cannot be judged at any time in their lives, as we are constantly changing, whether in years, days, or weeks. Labels are dangerous, I agree if it is a permanent label. This is definitely a way to define the people in the past as to what they, and we, truthfully, may have been thinking or acting out.
However, I would use this in the present as a way not to be revictimized. I look for some of these dibilitating attributes in a prospective employer, for example, and that is toxic for me. I will look now, but in order to get a head start for the door.
And yes, abuse is the trainer for passive aggressive behavior. We need to get a new trainer, to be free, open and curious, in order to challenge the social stigmas of abuse, shout out the silence and hiding of abuse, and be the example of rebirth, not another victim, thank you, kt.

(((Allen))) I am so happy you are getting a clear picture of these personalities and the waste in combonations to our youths and recoveries. Just keep swimming, my man, in understanding these, you are a master of your surroundings, not just brim. :-)

King Tut, Yes, we can cetainly be drawn in by these types. Understanding and compassion, these are the foundations for wisdom, heal well, my brother.

Ron, thank you for your honesty, and yes, this article speaks to my combinations as well.

Jim, what are we going to do with you? I think your time in the back of the class is coming to an end, lol. Thanks for the reply, JG.

Kevin, yeah, but you kicked the cr** outta all eight of 'em. I am gonna sign up for your defense classes!

Former Texan, that is so true, those folks in these stages are only good for late night tv and black and white films. Nice illustration. We hope they quit their acting and get a day job, the support they need.

I appreciate the feedback, fellow survivors, continue to enjoy the enormity of your success in recovery, being present, and being you.

Sam, sasuva, retaken.

I think this list is missing one of the less obvious ones:

9. Two faced back stabbers

you rarely see it coming, because they are broadcating a message contrary to their true intention. They give a pretense of friendship, but there is something shamefully insideous in their perfidy. Let the buyer beware!
Im sure we've all met this one, or been this one at one time or another.

Thanks Sam!

Just for the record, Ron and Mark's additions would apply as far my perp is 10 for 10.
