Playing the Blame Game as a Manipulation Tactic

Avoid responsibilityBarDivider10

Dr George Simon, PhD:

By habitually blaming others for their own indiscretions, disturbed characters resist modifying their problematic attitudes and behavior patterns.

Perhaps no behavior which disordered characters are prone to displaying is more common than their tendency to blame others when they do something wrong. Confront them on something they did that was insensitive, inappropriate, hurtful, or even harmful, and you’ll find them playing the blame game — pinning the fault on someone or something else. You’ll often hear them claim that some person or circumstance made them do what they did instead of acknowledging that they had a choice about how to respond to the situation and failed to choose wisely.
