Thanks for sharing this tongue-in-cheek post. I didn’t read your previous version which mentioned sociopathy but it was when I was reading up on sociopathy and and psychopathy that I first encountered ‘gaslighting’. Some of the articles mentions gaslighting was one of the many devices used by socio/psychopaths to torment their victims. Not sure to what extent this is true. I wish to read more about the relationship between gaslighting and those personality disorders.
