Gaslighting and Manipulation (Can Narcissists Trick Smart People?)
Can an intelligent person be tricked into self-doubt and eventually believing they’re crazy and/or not good enough? If you’ve ever been manipulated by a narcissist, you probably already know the answer to that question.
Of course it can happen. And it does – far too often.
Here’s why and how. So often, I hear survivors of toxic relationships say they thought they were too smart to be gaslighted and manipulated by narcissists. This logically should be true – but as I’ll explain in today’s video, even highly intelligent people can be affected by gaslighting and manipulation at the hands of someone with malignant narcissism – even when you’re trying to stay no contact.
