Later I had a client who was paranoid and dangerous. Working with paranoid people is challenging. They believe they have been targeted by mysterious conspirator forces. Working malevolently behind the scenes, paranoid people are hyper alert and hyper focused. They are attending to nonverbal cues with an intent nous never manifest during ordinary human interactions. They make mistakes and interpretation, that's the paranoia, but they are still almost uncanny in their ability to detect mixed motives, judgment and falsehood. You have to listen very carefully and tell the truth if you are going to get a paranoid person to open up to you.
