> Your other assignment is to get the book "When I Say No, I Feel Guilty" by

> Another excellent book is "Mastering the Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense" by 
> Suzette Haden Elgin. It excels at teaching how to recognize common verbal 
> attacks, especially of the "dang, I think that's an attack but I'm not sure 
> why," and how to not get sucked into off-topic, defensive, and pointless 
> circular arguments.
A friend of mine recommended the book "The Gift of Fear", by Gavin de 
Becker. It talks about how many women intuit danger and ignore their 
intuitive signals, because of their social training to always be nice. 
It may help.
