Is there a word or name to call someone that gets called a name, yet
uses the same name to call others?
I'm not certain there is a word to describe a person, but to describe the act:
: the attribution of one's own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other
people or to objects especially
: the externalization of blame, guilt, or responsibility as a defense
Or the Urban dictionary has these definitions:
1) An unconscious self-defence mechanism characterised by a person
unconsciously attributing their own issues onto someone or something
else as a form of delusion and denial.
2) A way to blame others for your own negative thoughts by repressing
them and then attributing them to someone else. Due to the sorrowful
nature of delusion and denial it is very difficult for the target to
be able to clarify the reality of the situation.
3) A way to transfer guilt for your own thoughts, emotions and actions
onto another as a way of not admitting your guilt to yourself.
- This is a noun that can equally serve as a verb. "is he projecting again", "he just projected the whole thing on me as usual", "he just projects it all on everyone else" etc..
