1.53 PUSH YOUR BUTTONS -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Push Your Buttons

MEANING: Not an established term, but certainly one that we all know. It refers to the way a person can rapidly get a predicable emotional and often negative response from another by playing on the victim's vulnerabilities. This is especially true when it comes to childish and immature emotions. Some women who control men through sex, can sexually arouse a man by knowing how to push his buttons and then get him to comply with their wishes.

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: Abusive people are masters at pushing another's buttons. They often have a sixth sense about the other's vulnerabilities.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: manipulate, control, overreact
