Gaslighting is a manipulative mind and behavior control strategy perpetrated by highly manipulative pathological narcissists who desire power and control over weak and defenseless victims. These predators prey on susceptible individuals who believe in their false altruism, affection and promises of protection. Gaslighters are most successful when they believably cast themselves as loyal and dutiful protectorates who are unconditionally invested in defending and caring for their beloved gaslit victims.

Gaslighters achieve control over their victims by systematically manipulating the environment so that distress is experienced over an implanted problem(s) that either was only mildly problematic or never existed. Because victims are coerced into believing their inculcated problems are real, and shown repeated proof of their escalation, they begin to increasingly identify with and succumb to the implanted, progressive nature. As the problems and consequent feelings of hopelessness escalate, gaslighters then further instill insecurities and paranoid feelings and thoughts. The methodical barrage of implanted narratives eventually glues the victims to their problems, and consequently manifests as long-term hopelessness, powerlessness and shame.
