Some more examples of gaslighting:

  • Forgetting or misremembering conversations or situations: “That isn’t what happened”, “That’s not what I remember” “You’re making that up”
  • Trivializing a partner’s concerns or feelings: “Why are you making a big deal out of something so small?” “You’re overreacting”
  • Feigning indifference or incredulation: “I don’t understand how you could interpret the situation like that”, “Why can’t you see that I’ve done nothing wrong?” “How could you be so crazy and irrational?”
  • Cutting off communication or refusal to speak to a partner when they don’t like what the partner is saying, “I don’t like your tone”, “I’m not going to discuss this with you when you’re so hysterical”, “This conversation is making me uncomfortable”.
