1.28 FILTER, FILTERING -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Filter, Filtering

MEANING: A distortion of what was said or communicated to another person.

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: Abusive people may distort what you say so that they hear something quite different. In psychological terms this is called filtering. They often alter your words to fit their own preconceptions or to suit their own ideas.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: I have gotten into extended arguments only to find that the other person was angry about something I never said or meant. In this case, the person 'filtered' what I said to fit their ideas. So it helps to make sure that both of you have the same understanding before getting into a disagreement. See active listening.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: self-censoring, internal editing, listening, active listening
