Gaslighting or Audiographic Memory: Which Superpower Will Win the Day?

Yesterday we discussed gaslighting – a manipulative technique defined by ever increasing frequency of systematically withholding factual information and/or providing false information with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception, and sanity.

Variations of this technique have been known in the past as  “disinformation” “newspeak” and “agitprop.”

Today I would like to discuss a skill that is quite useful in fighting this form of abuse: “audiographic memory” -  a variant of photographic memory in which a person is capable of remembering verbatim everything they’ve ever heard. It is an especially effective skill to have when arguing or debating with people who practice gaslighting techniques.

Hey - I know a guy with an audiographic memory!

Maybe he’d be good choice to debate Hillary. He could help her out because at her age she seems to have trouble remembering stuff that happened just a few weeks ago let alone a few years ago. Butt seriously, what difference at this point does it make?

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

My super power is remembering everything you ever said; what’s yours Hillary?

Warning Hillary: your gaslighting days are about to be challenged.
