Am I Being Manipulated by My Partner Quiz

One of the great tactics of master manipulators is the ability to make other people feel like they are wrong, even when they are not.

They tend to flip any situation from the focus being on them to the focus being on their accuser, creating feelings of uncertainty, guilt, and shame. 

Such situations may also occur in relationships. If you are in a relationship with someone manipulative, it could be very confusing and frustrating. It could make you constantly second-guess yourself. Your partner could invalidate your feelings and create an uneven playing field.
