Narcissists and the Dog Whistle Effect in Toxic Relationships

Written by Angela Atkinson

What is the dog whistle effect and how do narcissists use it against you? The term comes from the term Dog-whistle politics, but it is also a term that applies to narcissists as an extreme form of gaslighting.

Dog-whistle politics is defined as “political messaging employing coded language that appears to mean one thing to the general population but has an additional, different or more specific resonance for a targeted subgroup. The phrase is often used as a pejorative, because of the inherently deceptive nature of the practice and because the dog-whistle messages are frequently distasteful to the general populace.”

Clearly, it is an analogy to a dog whistle, which has a high-frequency sound that is heard by dogs but inaudible to humans. In this video, I’ll explain how narcissists use this tactic to manipulate and control their victims and how you can deal with dog whistling effectively.
