Hey, look at the tittle, GASLIGHTING. This word derived from GASLIGHT, which is according to AI, Gaslight is a term that refers to a form of psychological abuse or manipulation that causes a person to doubt their own memory, perception, or sanity. The term comes from a 1938 play and a 1944 movie called Gaslight, in which a husband tries to make his wife think she is going crazy by changing the gas lights in their house and denying it. Gaslighting can happen in various contexts, such as romantic relationships, friendships, family, work, or politics. Some examples of gaslighting are:
  • Telling someone that they are remembering things wrong or that they have a bad memory.
  • Pretending not to understand or listen to someone when they are expressing their feelings or concerns.
  • Making someone feel guilty or ashamed for having normal reactions or emotions.
  • Denying or lying about something that happened or that they did.
  • Changing the subject or questioning someone’s credibility when they are trying to have a conversation.
  • Using stereotypes or insults to undermine someone’s identity or self-esteem.
