Are Gaslighters Aware of What They Do?

After the posting on my article Gaslighting: Know It to Identify It and Protect YourselfI’ve received emails asking whether people who are gaslighting know that they are doing it.  As I mentioned in the article, gaslighting is a pattern of manipulation tactics used by abusers, narcissists, dictators, and cult leaders in order to gain control over a person or people.  The goal of gaslighting is to make the victim or victims question their own reality and subsequently depend more on the gaslighter.

Do gaslights know they’re doing it?  It depends on the gaslighter.
