If you are looking for tips on how to manipulate a manipulator, I have a simple, yet valuable piece of advice for you. It will save you from being scammed and prevent you from ending up at the wrong person’s doorstep.
There are those people who are not inclined to listen to reason. They are determined to get their way regardless of the consequences. Those are the ones who try to make you their captive audience.
You may find them doing things that you would consider unethical or even illegal. They know what they are doing. It is just that you wouldn’t realize it if you didn’t know better. You can use these methods to your advantage if you can spot them.
Manipulative behavior is something that is very hard to identify because people are inherently deceptive. Manipulation is a trick of psychology which is used by the manipulator in order to confuse and control people. It is nothing more than what it sounds like.
In order to find out whether a person is manipulative, you should always be willing to listen to them. People who have trouble listening to others find it very difficult to engage in genuine conversation.
You should be able to detect manipulative people by their body language. Their way of talking is likely to stand out to you.
One way to tell whether a person is manipulative is to observe whether their body language portrays this manner of speaking. If they talk quickly, use the right hand to write or make a phone call. These are signs that suggest that they are communicating by manipulation.
Observe how they respond to you. Do they respect your opinion?
By observing these kinds of behavior, you can then make your own kind of kind observations. People often times make mistakes and are not able to tell if their partner is being manipulative.
The key is to simply put a positive attitude and trust in yourself. You should be able to recognize when you are being manipulated if you are already open to seeing red flags.
If you take notice of the red flags, you can then decide whether or not you should confront the manipulator or not. Don’t jump into the situation thinking you will get a free ride. The manipulator might claim they are acting in your best interests when in fact they are acting for their own benefit.
A lot of us aren’t able to tell the difference between our own relationship and manipulation. But if you keep your wits about you, you can in time learn to spot the warning signs.
