1. The group is focused on a charismatic leader who is self-appointed and often claims superhuman power (cults often do not survive the death of their leader).

2. This leader demands complete obedience to their will and members often seem to display excessively zealous, unquestioning commitment.

3. A preoccupation with bringing in new members and a preoccupation with making money.

4. Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished (thought reform techniques are often used to prevent this type of thought).

5. Mind-numbing techniques (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues and debilitating work routines) are used to stop normal critical thinking and suppress doubts or criticism of the group.

6. The leadership dictates how members should think, behave, and feel (for example: members must get permission from leaders to date, change jobs, get married; leaders may prescribe how to discipline children, what to wear, where to live, and so forth).

7. The group is elitist and exclusive claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s), and members (for example: the leader is considered the Messiah; the group and/or the leader has a special mission to save humanity).

8. The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which causes conflict with the wider society.  Followers are taught to see their way of thinking is ABSOLUTELY correct while the world is CORRUPT. 

9. Because the world is viewed as corrupt the group's leader is viewed as above the law and is not accountable to any authorities.

10. The group is pyramidal in structure with a select few people at the top controlling the flow of information to members

11. The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify means that members would have considered unethical before joining (i.e. the use of deception in recruiting or fundraising).

12. The leadership demands conformity, inducing guilt feelings in members in order to control them. Fear of leaving the group is often instilled and attempts to leave are seen as a betrayal.

13. Members' subservience to the group causes them to cut ties with family and friends, and to give up personal goals and activities that were of interest before joining the group.

14. Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group.

15. Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members. As a result members are often physically or psychologically isolated from society, promoting dependence on the other members of the group.
