One of the primary differences to distinguish is when the individual becomes aware that something that they have done is wrong.
Notice the word WHEN <– That’s the key!
There you are at your local grocery store when you come out to your suburban only to find that someone has left a sizable dent in the left side passenger door.
You look around to find a note or something left by the offending party only to find a lack of any information.
So, while calling your insurance company you walk back into the store to ask if their parking lot has cameras. Turns out they do. Along with the loss prevention department, you find the make, model, and color of the offender along with their license plate.
In this scenario, the offender could have acknowledged that they hit your vehicle the moment that it happened and left a note under your windshield wiper.
But they chose not to.
Does a person acknowledge that they are wrong only when confronted by a judge in a court hearing?
Does the individual ONLY seem to display remorse AFTER being handed a sentence?
Will the subject ever admit that they have done something wrong before being arrested?
When a person shows no remorse AT THE MOMENT that they committed the offense that needs to be noticed.
If the only time that the individual suddenly turns on tears, makes excuses, formulates justifications, or shows a reaction is long AFTER the offense, then you know you’re dealing with someone who shows no AUTHENTIC remorse.
