Query: I’m working on a piece about the psychology terms that are most misused by the general public. I’ll spend time explaining what each one really means, and why using the term correctly is important. What’s the harm when these terms are adopted and slung about incorrectly by so many people?

Some of the terms on my radar: gaslighting, triggered, love-bombing, trauma-bonded, etc. Eager to hear what other terms you see most misused, and to discuss what they actually mean.

Requirements: Must have relevant mental-health professional experience.
