An example of gaslighting

From a Pepsi commercial (via a reader):

224 comments:

  1. gaslighting is such a rubbish name for it. Also, anyone capable of being 'gaslit' must be a moron. Those are my compassionate words for the day. Peace.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Gaslighting can be done on anyone. How far and how you push it though, that changes how believable it is. Like this commercial? It would probably only work on someone used to weird hallucinations.

    on topic of dealing with shame with healthy ways-

    lets see if i can get into the bottom of this provide a simple solution

    fact 1: shame is a powerful emotion its etimology is based on the word cover like people who make public speeches in their nudes are prone to feeling shame

    fact 2: it has been suggested that narcissists are prone to it they are projecting or something

    solution: in my opinion shame is useless emotion 1 can function with out it if ur prone to feeling it dont go to those kinds of situations dont make public speeches in the nude then ya dont need to deal with it and will be able to live productive and fulfilling life

  35. Lyrics speak volumesDecember 16, 2011 at 9:29 AM

    TNP"s Rollins Band (Liar) Lyrics

    You think you're going to live your life alone
    in darkness and seclusion... yeah, I know
    you've been out there and tried to mix with those Animals

    And it just left you full of humiliated confusion
    so you stagger back home and wait for nothing
    but the solitary refinement of your room spits you back onto the streets

    And now you're desperate and in need of human contact and then you meet me and your whole world changes because everything I say is everything you've ever wanted to hear

    So you drop all you defenses, and you drop all your fears I'm perfect in every way 'cause I make you feel so strong and so powerfull inside, you feel so lucky

    But your ego obscures reality but you never bothered to wonder why things are going so well
    You want to know why?

    'Cause I'm a liar, yeah, I'm a liar
    I'll tear your mind out, I'll burn your soul
    I'll turn you into me, I'll turn you into me

    I'll hide behind a smile and understanding eyes
    And I'll tell you things that you already know so you can say: I really identify with you, so much

    And all the time that you're needing me is just the time that I'm bleeding you, don't you get it yet?
    I'll come to you like an affliction then I'll leave you like an addiction, you'll never forget me...

    I don't know why I feel the need to lie and cause you so much pain maybe it's something inside, maybe it's something I can't explain 'cause all I do is mess you up and lie to you

    But if you'll give me another chance I swear I'll never lie to you again 'cause now I see the destructive power of a lie, they're stronger than truth

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm with you notme. Why the hell do they call it gaslighting?

    My narc ex used to do this to everyone around him. It was a game. He'd get cocky about it though and tell me when he was doing it to whom sometimes. I think he thought I'd enjoy the game. Usually I just let whoever he was targetting in on the charade.


    Also, how is it already Christmas time? I haven't even finished shopping (or started really).

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm conflicted. I've been surprised by tnp the last couple days and found him to be surprisingly amusing, particularly in his accuracies against Medusa. I don't remember him being this fun, and I'm starting to like him despite myself. Though I must say it could have something to do with his choice in target. We'll see I suppose.

    Haven, he's right about you too. You're insane. I would be infuriated if I found out you were obsessing on me on some blog debating publicly the potential in our relationship. I'd be embarrassed to know it, and i doubt that bodes well for intimacy for you. I responded to you yesterday, too. Your ignorant bullocks about people being creative and scientific is a load of bunk. The feigned superiority you tried to take is an obvious deflection from the fact that you either just don't know your friends who are capable of such scientific sensitivity, or that you don't understand the balancing aspects of the human personality. When you figure it out, you'll be that much closer to sanity, though I presume its beyond your capabilities, and I really think you should just give up therapy altogether and roll with insane. Then at least you can get off the "I know I'm crazy, but i m trying to change" kick that justifies everything that you do to yourself. You're just embodying your label as a crutch. You have no desire to change... so don't. Fuck it.

    You doing better? My husband tries gas lighting me all the time. Sometimes it is as simple as him hiding my purse and attempting to make me feel crazy. He normally does that kind of stuff when he feels like he is loosing control.

    Speaking of loosing control, my husband has been trying to pressure me for another kid, I am sure to keep me around. I don't want anymore at all. It is not going to happen; however, our house has been a little tense.

  50. Missus

    Aside from the obvious dynamics, we got married really young. We have no common interests anymore since we have grown up. I can't see staying with someone where I share no common interests.

    ReplyDelete
  51. As for you Missus. TNP is a pretty astute guy.

    My father is an artist. I grew up with art. I have a keen appreciation for it and have a multitude of my own artistic hobbies and pursuits. Are you honestly trying to tell me that someone can not be artistic and scientific at the same time? All through University I was surrounded with logical left brain types. Many, many of which had creative outlets. People are not black and white Missus. I hope you don't miss the irony of someone like me telling you that.

    What do I do? I'm an Engineer. I have B.S. and M.S. in Engineering and work at a renowned facility in my field. I'm sorry, what is it that you do again?

    Theoretically I should be with Mr. Right by now? Really? This is an asinine statement. My life is not static. It's dynamic and ever changing. What I liked when I was younger grows and evolves with me as I do. I do know /some/ attributes that make me tick. However I've also realized that some of the things I like aren't healthy for me; more hurtful than helpful. I want to work on not harming myself. I have a lot of stuff I need to work on. I don't think the same way you do. Just because you understand things from one direction, does not mean my train of thought, life, or perspective follows the same route. Obviously.


    Fuck therapy? Is that your professional opinion. Oh wait. I'm not trying to 'justify' anything I do. I'm trying to understand the things I do. There's a difference

    ReplyDelete
  52. There you go, haven. Now we're getting somewhere. You respond well to offenses. It pulls out your rationale. Your stability. You also have a predisposition for someone more creative than linear. So the right guy for you would be abrasive, demanding, and artistic. That's a challenging set of traits because the commanding presence and creativity can result in abuses and over valuing of emotional responses, but you can counteract that with his vvalue system, such as never hitting a woman, etc. That explains why your longest relationships were with abusive people.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Haven

    Yeah LOL it is not going to happen. I don't want anymore kids period, with anybody. Just thought I would share.

  54. Sweet, I know tthat you say that, but he knows you aren't doing anything about it, and he's a narcissist so I would guess that he doesn't think you'd ever conceive of leaving him.

  59. Um, thanks? Oddly direct confrontation or any kind of actual emergency situation results in flipping me to a calmer mode. If there's an actual target or problem, there's likely a direct course of action I can take in regards to it. It's the vague uncertain things that I don't handle well.


    You're right that I have a predisposition for someone more creative than linear.

    Abrasive, demanding and artistic. Heh. That was my narc ex all over.

    I'm trying to avoid the abrasive part. At first I wanted to say I'm trying to avoid the demanding part as well, but I rather like when someone demands my attention as long as they don't demand all of my attention.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Anon, you are wrong. Borderlines are far more valued by society, as they actually can HELP people.

    A socio has NO empathy, meaning they are completely self serving. Sociopaths are terrible for society. People with no empathy shouldn't be given any kind of job.

  66. Ive been trying to make myself into a sociopath...... Like kinda unleash my inner sociopath or something.

    Do you guys have any tips on how to make myself into a better sociopath? Ive already read the 48 laws of power and the art of seduction so I have started keeping people in suspended terror from being unpredictable and stuff!!!! It's alot more fun to be a sociopath because than you can just say "Iam a sociopath, what do you expect?" or if I ever get caught or arrested I will just manipulate, cry, and say I had a horrible childhood!!!! That should evoke some sense of sympathy unless they are sociopaths (Or mock sociopaths, like me). Iam just hoping one day I can be a real sociopath.

I packed my lunchbox and did what I needed to do. The end result is I'm still alive and right now I'm doing well for myself. I'm not old and alone like you. I'm married and living next to a lake. To quote one of my wife's favorite poet's, Emily Dickenson:

    We never know how high we are
    Till we are called to rise;

    When you make it through the tough times without breaking you become great, David. The fact is that you did not rise. You fell. That's why you are so damaged right now. That's why you are mentally scarred. That's why you have to take pills to sleep at night. That's why you feel so inferior that you will go to greater lengths than anyone on this site to prove yourself. That's why you need validation from a psychiatrist that you are a sociopath (Which never happened) to blame all your problems on a uncurable 'disorder'.

  106. Delusional. Last week you said I had insight into you that you didn't think possible that I was a thirty year old drug dealer. You thought I was in my 50's. Remember? Which is it david? Is it dependant upon me stopping my campaign of torment on you because you flatter me or is it dependant upon me validating the delusion you have that you are something special? Which of those do I need to do in order for me to keep my beliefs in who you are, because I haven't changed anything I have said about you. You are the only one changing your opinion and I think it is obvious to anyone why that is. Now go pop some pills so you don't lay awake thinking about how alone and worthless you are.

    The term 'gaslighting' comes from a play called 'Gas Light'. An important plot-point revolves around gaslighting (the psychological term) with an actual gaslight (the kind of light that runs on gas). Also, TNP might find the name of one of the characters to be amusing.

  124. Emily Dickinson, seriously?

    She was exactly the kind of person you would call a weak loser afraid of life. She died unknown.

    "Till we are called to rise;"

    Right... how do you rise anywhere when you are too afraid and pathetic to leave your room? Isn't that what you would say?

  125. "But there is something else about the speech of psychopaths that is equally puzzling: their frequent use of contradictory and logically inconsistent statements that usually escape detection. Recent research on the language of psychopaths provides us with some important clues to this puzzle, as well as to the uncanny ability psychopaths have to move words - and people- around so easily. […]

    When asked if he had ever committed a violent offense, a man serving time for theft answered, "No, but I once had to kill someone."

    A woman with a staggering record of fraud, deceit, lies, and broken promises concluded a letter to the parole board with, "I've let a lot of people down… One is only as good as her reputation and name. My word is as good as gold."

    A man serving a term for armed robbery replied to the testimony of an eyewitness, "He's lying. I wasn't there. I should have blown his fucking head off."

    From an interview with serial killer Elmer Wayne Henley:

    Interviewer: "You make it out that you're the victim of a serial killer, but if you look at the record you're a serial killer."
    Henley: "I'm not."
    I: "You're not a serial killer?"
    H: "I'm not a serial killer."
    I: You're saying you're not a serial killer now, but you've serially killed."
    H: "Well, yeah, that's semantics."

    And so on. The point that the researchers noted was that psychopaths seem to have trouble monitoring their own speech. What is more, they often put things together in strange ways, such as this series of remarks from serial killer Clifford Olson: "And then I had annual sex with her." "Once a year?" "No. Annual. From behind." "Oh. But she was dead!" "No, no. She was just unconscientious." About his many experiences, Olson said, "I've got enough antidotes to fill five or six books - enough for a trilogy." He was determined not to be an "escape goat" no matter what the "migrating facts."" [Hare, Without Conscience]

  128. "Psychopaths are notorious for not answering the questions asked them. They will answer something else, or in such a way that the direct question is never addressed. They also phrase things so that some parts of their narratives are difficult to understand. This is not careless speech, of which everyone is guilty at times, but an ongoing indication of the underlying condition in which the organization of mental activity suggests something is wrong. It's not what they say, but how they say it that gives insight into their true nature."

  138. Boredom. That is one thing I do not experience.

    Some things feel like boredom but it's always actually something else.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Yeah I need it to fuel my uncontrollable impulses and destructive nature.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Boredom is actually pretty rare for me. I can think of approximately a million things to do right now, but I'm just too exhausted to motivate.

  141. I find that really hard to believe, Medusa. Not that I think you're lying, it's just... I don't get it. How?

    ReplyDelete
  142. I thought I experienced boredom, perhaps I do, but then I quickly come up with something to do and it then comes to light that my "boredom" was actually laziness in ending the moment of non activity.

  143. I've grown quite fond of Medusa in the time I've followed this blog. She never gives up and packs quite a punch, both qualities I respect in a person. Oh, and she's no sociopath either, and that is a plus too. Just a fighter.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Anon above me, who gives a fuck who you like, and it makes little sense to come to a sociopath blog angry that there are nothing but sociopaths bantering. That's like going to a seafood joint, ordering chicken, and being glad that your chicken ain't seafood. Why go to that place that specializes in something you have no desire in having?

    ReplyDelete
  145. Wheatley, for me it's usually procrastination. To call it 'boredom' is to cop out equivalent to 'leaving it to a Higher Power'.

    Bored is as bored and boring does.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I think I get bored pretty easily. I'm not sure though, because mostly it's, like Piles said, not doing anything about not having anything to do. But I also get bored when I have to do stuff I just don't give a fuck about.

    Because of the pearls I can find buried in the crap! ;)

    And to get angry and emotional responses from people like you, wannabe sociopath losers.

    I would love to keep on going, but I need to go now. Ta ta!

  148. Yeah, I generally hold myself accountable when I'm bored. Unless I'm somehow prevented from doing something I do care about. Which is why I hate funerals.

  157. Famous medusa? So famous even I have heard of you all the way over here? Ha ha, yet you are forced to live with a roomate you can't stand? Give me a break, woman. The famous people I have seen all have their own mansions, you can't even rent a flat by yourself. Talk about delusions of grandeur.

  158. thats not how the music industry works dude. most musicians even well known ones with big record deals don't make anywhere near millions

  159. I don't know Medusa story bot Los Angeles is littered with out of work broke musicians you may have heard of. There's even a service called Rock & Roll movers the employees unemployed musicians. I've had a few indie rocks from notable bands work for me. I know one DJ/Electronic performer who was signed to Astererks/Virgin that's homeless. He lost his contract when Mirah Carey's album Glitter was such a failure (lost $40 million) Virgin had to close their LA offices.
