Stop playing the victim!

Victim Mentality

Victim mentality is an acquired personality trait in which a person tends to recognize themselves as a victim of the negative actions of others and circumstances, and to behave as if this were the case in the face of clear evidence of such circumstances.

Victim mentality depends on clear thought processes and attribution. In most cases, those with a victim mentality have in fact been the victim of wrongdoing by others or have otherwise suffered misfortune through no fault of their own; however, such misfortune does not necessarily imply that one will respond by developing a pervasive and universal victim mentality where one frequently or constantly realizes oneself to be a victim.

The term is also used in reference to the tendency for recognizing one’s misfortunes on somebody else’s misdeeds, which is also referred to as victimism.

Victim mentality is primarily developed, for example, from family members and situations during childhood. Similarly, criminals often engage in victim thinking, believing themselves to be moral and engaging in crime only as a reaction to an immoral world and furthermore feeling that police are unfairly singling them out for persecution.
