Ross explains the clinical definitions of what he terms “Pathological Narcissism," what is Narcissistic, Borderline and Antisocial Personality Disorders, but re-conceptualizes them to fit his Human Magnet Syndrome work.

Gaslighting is Everywhere!
Gaslighting is a well-thought-out brainwashing strategy utilized by manipulative narcissists. Gaslighters control victims by manipulating them into identifying with and feeling no control over an implanted psychological problem. The resulting insecurity and paranoia creates low self-esteem and feelings of hopelessness, while compelling them to isolate. They are trapped in a double bind from which it is difficult to escape.
