How abusers use projection to continue to abuse

Posted on 19 December, 2016 at 11:10

Psychological projection is based on the theory in psychology where humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others. However, a clever toxic person that knows something about psychology will setup their victim by telling the victim's friends and family that the victim is projecting their toxic personality onto the toxic person and the toxic person will act innocent. When the victim points out the abuse from the toxic person to friends and family,  the victim looks like they are projecting their negative qualities onto the toxic person. Then the toxic person confirms with the victim's friends and family that the victim has mental problems. This way the friends and family of the victim doubt the victim's accusations of being abused and go along with the toxic person because it relates to psychological theory and they saw what the toxic person wanted them to see, which was a baited setup. The toxic person manipulated the theory to suit their needs to continue to isolate the victim and victimize them.
