is a psychological disorder causing
a personality flaw in-which the afflicted presents
themselves as excessively nice.Niceopaths
to be friendly and caring, but are actually
depressed and often angry. They hide behind a wall
of smiles protecting their fears and insecurities which would otherwise manifest by way of their verbal and/or physical abuse.
Symptoms and warning signs of those suffering from niceopathy
may include, but are not limited to; constant smile, rigid but proper conversation etiquette, severe anal retentiveness, and fluctuating frequency/pitch of voice (often sounding gentle, melodic, and too happy).
Many people suffering from niceopathy
make the best of their disorder
and become successful in sales. Statistics show that the majority of Real estate agents and car salespeople suffer from niceopathy
Unfortunately, family members of niceopaths
end up suffering
the most. At home, a niceopath often feels comfortable and in enough control to lift their mask of niceness and reveal the depressed, angry, quick tempered person that lurks within them.
The worst cases
have presented with an excessively nice person in an inexplicable fit of rage; i.e. "going postal".

knew that she was being too nice. She was just faking
it and suffered from niceopathy"
