ITT: we post ways we have successfully manipulated or have been successfully manipulated by other people, and why it worked.

This thread is just as much about learning to prevent manipulation as well as doing it.

This is a good thread, bumping

Is this the Dale Carnegie thread?
>>
Are you the deluded faggot who thinks they can read people's auras or some kind of new age witchy shit?
>>
>>16787154
Gee, thanks.

>>16787158
Nope.

>>16787208
Nope, just want people to tell their stories so that we may learn from them.

First and final self-bump

Waiter here. I make the best tips out of everyone in my restaurant and all the other workers think I'm some kind of a waiting prodigy, but the truth is much simpler. People love talking about themselves. Smile, ask plenty questions about them (is it a lunch break or a day off work? where do you work/where are you from? etc). If they seem friendly, keep asking questions and comment every so often. If not, just ask professional, not everyone wants a chat. By showing interest you'll make them like you and they're prone to help you out, or in this case, give you a big tip.

The easiest and most effective one

I don't believe in psychology but I do believe (and have verified) that people are stupid and weak enough to feel unable to resist you due to feeling like they need to accept you

I'm actually so great that even people who hate me end up throwing themselves at my feet in worship

Go watch Clueless and read some Jane Austen.

I'm not even joking. It's all about game theory.

Former Pimp here. Some pointers:

>1. Extrinsic motivation destroys intrinsic motivation. The fastest way to kill someone's innate enthusiasm for something is to pay them in immediate material rewards to do it.

>2. Charisma is the ability to simultaneously project both strength and warmth. You can learn how to do this, but some people have an innate talent for it.

>3. When you're conditioning someone to respond to rewards, don't reward them every time they do what they are supposed to. Conditioning them takes longer, but so does extinction.

A lot of these are psychology 101 though.

What did you expect from the dumbest moron around here? Ignore him, works way better.
>>
My ex boyfriend would manipulate me by harming himself. For medical reasons, he has to eat more often than a normal person, and drink twice as much water. Whenever I was angry at him, he would starve himself and not drink any water until I would just break down and try to take care of him.
