The Art Of Manipulation

To me manipulation is a game/art with one goal in mind - make people do what you want them to do while they believe they do it all for themselves. 

The most commonly observed form of manipulation happens between "lovers". We all know that bitch (works for both males and females) that likes to play games with your emotions and feelings while he/she is only trying to use you for something, usually money or sex.

"Public relations is at best promotion or manipulation, at worst evasion and outright deception. What it is never about is a free flow of information."

- Heather Brooke 

When people are in love they are in fact very vulnerable because it's very easy to misunderstand the whole situation and get hurt. 

It happens every day.....

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. 

-Neil Gaiman 


Another serious form of this art is the media induced manipulation. This is a very dangerous one since the media can have serious impact on the human subconscious mind. 

The movie Wag The Dog (1997) is a good example of how strong the media can be - it's called Fourth Estate for a good reason. 


Please, in the comment section share a manipulation story. We've all been puppets at one point or another !
