Re: Gaslighting...... what other form of manipulation is there?

Your question intrigued me enough to do a Google search. Here was one result that names 10 such techniques:

10 Techniques Used by Manipulators (and How to Fight Them) |

BTW, thank you for posing the question. I often feel like I've been manipulated into my current situation where I doubt myself. I did not understand that there WERE actual techniques being used.

BTW, one such technique is called "projection" which in this link (I believe) is used by a manipulator to deflect blame. Now, I may be reading into this wrong but I often feel like manipulators are damaged themselves and and employ this to deflect their own feelings of inadequacy. Whether they do it intentionally or simply do it instinctively is uncertain. I guess it depends on what the manipulator does if the technique is challenged by its victim. If another technique like gaslighting is used then I suppose that it IS indeed being using intentionally - or worse, the manipulator is REALLY damaged goods.
