The use of lights, especially vehicle headlights, to SENSITIZE and harass the Targeted Individual.
The strategy of only telling someone what they would know about or find out anyway. In this way, no one person knows a lot about the compartmentalizer. Generally, this is a shame-based strategy that supports a shaky self-esteem by seemingly giving others less to criticize. It also supports power behavior, because knowing something someone else does not certainly gives the feeling of power and can often give actual power over another.
In the context of domestic abuse, much denial is deliberate lying or not acknowledging that which obviously exists or has occurred. The legal system can reinforce this by treating what cannot be proven as something that did not happen.
A Form of manipulation that is intended to make a Targeted Individual, or population, doubt or question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Gas Lighting is of used to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s beliefs and any claims of being targeted.

Saying what one believes another person wants to hear. This behavior is often done to disarm the other person from their options of critical thinking, or acting promptly on a boundary.
Involves a threat of or perceived threat of injury or harm. In the context of Organized Gang Stalking, the threat can be a subtle act or reference that the Targeted Individual can only interpret in such a way, or it can be a more direct and blatant act. The purpose of this may be to actually threaten the person or to cause further emotion distress, which is what Organized Gang Stalkers do.
Involves is constantly shifting focus from actions onto reasons or intentions. Everyone is able to provide ‘good’ reasons for what they do. Possible reasons are always numerous. In a situation where “what happened, “and the responsibility for what happened is not disputed, discussing reasons may be self-revealing and enjoyable. But where actions have never really been owned, switching to reasons is part of the con and intended to maintain the imbalance in power.
- LYING IN WAIT
A common controlling tactic is to deliver a mix of many true statements and a few lies. This is sometimes called a ‘mindfuck.’ The difficulty for the survivor, is that going along or resisting, based on the feeling of truth or falsity of what is said, is much more difficult because of the mixture. However, if the insincerity is detected, the overall controlling intention becomes easily evident.
Minimizing is quickly changing the focus from the meaning or goal of a behavior to the concrete results. Since most abusive behavior relies on the implied but unused threat of battering or more coercive actions, simply describing the concrete behavior can at times seriously under-depict the harm and power aspects. Often, strong reactions by a survivor to intimidating behavior is described by minimizers as crazy because it is supposedly out of proportion. However, the survivors reaction is in response to the overall picture.
Minimizing also consists of admitting what is already provable and denying the part that can’t be proven.

- REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY
The principle or practice of subtly encouraging a behavior or belief by advocating its opposite. Reverse Psychology can viewed as a form of Gas-Lighting.
Acts or behavior by Organized Stalkers to cause a Targeted Individual (or a someone or something else) to respond to or notice certain stimuli, i.e., to make sensitive to. A Sensitizing act is often done over and over to get the Targeted Individual’s attention.
- STREET THEATER
- THE CON
- TRAFFIC MOBBING
A form of MOBBING using bikes, pedestrians, and cars to harass the Targeted Individual between one destination to another destination. As evident that police are widely involved in Gang Stalking, Stalkers also use police and military traffic tactics to harass the Target. Examples include almost being hit by a car or run off the road where you thought it was intentional. Californians are infamous for cutting other drivers off.
In the context of Abuse and in its most basic form, Victim-Playing involves someone (typically the Abuser) acting as if they are the victim of a crime or abuse from someone else (typically the actual victim). As a form of Justification, Victim-Playing can be used to divert attention away from acts of abuse by claiming that the abuse was justified based on another personal bad behavior.
