Gaslighting is a type of manipulation that can happen in any personal relationship. When someone is gaslighting you, they want to make you doubt everything you say and feel. Why? You're more likely to stay in an relationship (or forgive a toxic coworker) if that person can make you believe you're mistaken or overreacting. Gaslighters tend to be critical people with low self-esteem. Some manipulators don't even realize they're gaslighting a partner, but that doesn't make it better: it's still a form of abuse that doesn't happen in healthy relationships. If you think you're being gaslit, it's time to find out.

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

Gaslighting is a type of emotional abuse

You've heard about gaslighting, but you might not know that there are three phases you go through as a gaslighting victim. In the first phase, you know that the other person is being ridiculous, but you argue with them anyway because you know you're right. When you get exasperated with the pointless arguments, you might move to the second phase when you try to reason with your gaslighter and understand their perspective, but it doesn't work. You begin to doubt yourself and second-guess everything you say during arguments. By phase three, your first instinct is to think that you're the person who's wrong and you must be the problem.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
