More Games I've Made Up: These are just patterns that I am noticed. Don't take this for psychological advice.
Gas Lighting: The players in this game are manipulator, target, and the audience. Target: I think it's insulting that you asked me if I was off my meds. Manipulator: I was just concerned! Audience: How could you possibly be insulted by that? She was just worried for you.
The manipulator lies a trap for the target by using insults that have some plausible deniability, so that the manipulator can aggress without being taken to account.
