A gaslighter personality is a highly manipulative individual. They could be charismatic and charming, or mysterious and hard to read. People who engage in gaslighting recognize manipulative behaviors and know they are doing them. These individuals use different tactics based on how they come across to others.

Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works much better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn't realize how much they've been brainwashed. For example, in the movie Gaslight (1944), a man manipulates his wife to the point where she thinks she is losing her mind.

Yeah I know this drummer narcissist who’s ego wanted to lead the band but he could never even quite get how to transition correctly from say 2/4 time signature to 5/4 Or vice versa.

He is no good as a drummer if he can't do that, the drums are the timing of a song and the drummer has to be able to do that and more smoothly and seamlessly.

This guy I jammed with, he had the goods, I did learn a lot from him. The way he was though, manipulate the fk out of everything. He always had a way of coming off with the bigger end of the stick and always the explanation as to why he should get the bigger end of the stick. Problem is though he has a extremely addictive personality. He was going downhill as it was because of the bottle and then he discovered opiods. Now he barely got sense enough to talk. I got away from him years ago, I think these days he is mad at me and the band I am with now as we all used to jam together years ago and now we are doing it without him lol.

Your friend made a choice of harder controlled substances over some things he enjoyed like music. At least he’s hasn't flatlined from it, yet. Bad choice

He lost everything. His band, gf, family, all he got is the bottle and the pills. We used to plead with him to put down the shit because the rest of us knew where he was heading. The weed didn't bother him in that way, he could have kept smoking weed but he wanted everything else too. I spent about 15 years at the hard shit myself, I know a thing or two about what it can do to you. I told him everything he needed to know but he wouldn't listen. Today, I been off the hard shit for a few years now and he is deeper into it than ever. Its scary looking at him and thinking where he was and where he is now.

Perhaps the best way to examine this inherently abusive behavior is to go straight to the source, the 1944 film “Gaslight.” The film tells a story of a husband systematically brainwashing his wife to the point that she legitimately thinks she is going insane. The wife fights to protect her identity all while her husband viciously tries to take it away.

While it never disappeared, over seven decades later, gaslighting has fully resurfaced in the dating world. Additionally, the term has resurfaced recently in some online publications to describe President Trump.

Additionally, the movie Gaslight also touches on how gaslighting can lead to the victim developing a form of Stockholm Syndrome. The victim becomes so uncertain of their sense of reality that they are now solely dependent on the gaslighter.wine
