Why some people try to play "victim card"?We come across many situations where some people try to claim that they are being victimized for no wrongdoing on their part. They play this victim card too often. Is it a mere ploy to avoid the responsibility? Is it to influence the others thought process? Is it done to justify their abuse of others? Is it to seek attention and pity for themselves? The psychologists say that all the above are the reasons for a person to play the victim card.
The real victims do not generally try to make it known. They try to solve their problem in their own way. In politics, victim playing has become common as they say that they are victims of the other parties propaganda or the other parties agenda to finish them off politically. This habit of playing the victim is not good and to be curtailed in any field.
