1.39 MANIPULATE -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS
MEANING: To engineer a person to do what you want without appearing to do so.
Note: This is certainly one of the 'bad' words in psychology and yet I believe all of us manipulates at some point. There are certainly degrees of manipulation, some being more transparent and acceptable, some being more hidden and sinister.
RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: In general terms abusers manipulate the abused to get what they want. This is how abuse works. There are a myriad number of ways to manipulate. See my 34 examples of abusive behavior.
PERSONAL NOTE FROM RICK DOBLE: My 1st wife was the master of manipulation. She could be incredibly smart or very stupid or affectionate or distant or attentive or forgetful. She always seemed to find the point where I was most vulnerable and then apply pressure. Since I was unaware of what she was doing, she was usually successful. Yet if I ever resisted, she would tell me that I was being controlling and should learn to be more flexible.
