12 Signs You're Being Manipulated

6891 ratings | 225524 views
Here are 12 signs you’re being manipulated! We encounter true masters of manipulation every day. People use power, media, and interpersonal relationships to manipulate others. The truth is that people like this are everywhere, and they can be anyone. The only thing that varies is the tactics they use, and it’s a good idea to learn what these are! Manipulators use certain behaviors to influence how other people think, feel and act in order to get them to do whatever the manipulators want. Essentially, they play psychological games, and it works. But, it only works if you don’t know how the game is played! The more familiar you are with these tactics, the harder it will be for anyone to use them against you. The next time someone tries to use these tricks on you, you’ll be able to recognize the signs you’re being manipulated immediately. Then, you can choose to ignore it, or call them out on it.

I used to be driven to violence against such people as the video described. But as I got older I dropped just about all physical options and decided to use my common sense and if possible, avoid those very people. Life is just too short and not to mention too valuble to waste it on “them” !!!

Excellent! 👍👌 It’s awful how those idiots play with your mind & life to get what they want! They are trashy, gossipers who have no feelings or shame about their disgusting behavior! Sometimes it’s better to live in a jungle, because animals can be much nicer and peaceful than some human beings!

This is a pretty good description of people ranging from having Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), to Sociopaths and full blown Psychopaths. According to the American Psychiatric Association around 6% of people have NPD that is 6/100 or a little over 1 in 20 people. So if you have 500 Facebook friends, at least 30 of those people will be clinically diagnosable Narcissists. Double that number if you live in California. A few symptoms to look out for: Lack of empathy They hold the belief that they are superior to other people Can be extremely charming and charismatic. Enjoy always being the centre of attention. Must always be in control and calling the shots. Entitled and believe the rules don’t apply to them. The more covert kinds are the manipulators who will exploit individuals who they know are lonely and seeking a friend and use them for an agenda. Will deny any responsibility and accountability for their actions (the cunning ones will pretend to take responsibility to uphold the image they want to convey to people). If they are targeting you they may seem to be really interested in getting to know you over months or even years. They’re actually gathering data on you to use against you and finding out your vulnerabilities so they can exploit you. They will gain your trust by “love bombing” you with flattery and will make you feel really good about yourself and feel they understand you. That’s how they gain your trust. Then the exploitation will begin. They’ll starting involving you in their activities and asking regular favours, small and large, and you’ll be happy to help. But after years you’ll look back and realise you’ve been doing their bidding and running around for them every time they call.

Yea Im dealing with one now. I've reckognized the red flags but had to play it cool and not let her know that she got discovered..Well I can't reason with them. I usually just play along and pretend that she is manupilating me. I get the sex I want from her and send her on her way back to hell to fool some other poor bastard.. Keep your game alive and be strong.. 😎

In sales, I was constantly told by trainer who was top seller in my company (not an mlm, but at a real job where you earn hourly plus commission) that you should always smile, have a pleasant/charming demeanor, and give compliments. Even if you ask for a sale and the client says no, you've "planted the seed", where you're trained to then pick up where you left off and build rapport with them so they'll trust you and buy from you so that you can earn the commissions off them. We'd be expected to gouge everyone until they had a facial lotion, a pure lotion, a bronzer, and the spray tan primer (if they used the beds or if they only sprayed). I got so uncomfortable.

Another sign of a manipulator is denial or throwing shit back at your face (which is projection of their anger issues from being exposed of their insecurities), especially if you "call them out" on their behaviour and/or tell them how you feel about their behaviours. Walk away from them. One chance is all you need from them and if they fuck it up, see you later and all the best.
BrotherTree1 (10 days ago)
Good thing about suffering from mental illness like depression and anxiety is, sometimes (or depends how you look at your own self in a critically brutal honest manner) you're not susceptible to compliments, flattery or some kind of "good news" or "saving grace". At least for me anyway as I don't believe them myself because of my poor self-esteem. And with emotional trickery to do something, use your own emotions - not the emotions they try and impose on you... and key is that "something" task they're getting you to do. If it feels uncomfortable or conflicting to you in your gut, first hand, there's your answer - thanks but no thanks, or if unsure, allow yourself time and suggest saying "I'll think about it" - if the manipulator doesn't allow time, then say something "then no, I prefer to miss out".

These are simple everyday ways of interaction between humans. Just because someone argues with you, it doesn't mean that they are trying to manipulate you. And yes, people CAN be wrong, when you call them wrong it's not you trying to manipulate them but trying to correct their way of seeing things. When a friend is trying to show an alternative way of thinking to a depressed person, it's not manipulation, it's genuine concern (even though it may look as an argument as the darkness collides with brightness)... So, don't listen to that crap...

Yelling & screaming, disagreeing, when the facts are in. Devaluing my work, "Baby I love you. I would never treat you that way." Everything is my fault & they deny everything they do, ghosting. When a person does this & refuses to listen to my boundaries they are gone. They are everywhere & I can not get away from them. My husbands is a psychopath & it went to far. I went no contact & ghost him for a year, at the end of March. If they do something that can be reported & taken seriously, I do. My work is all about helping others, when the chips are down & I must have heard it all. They are everywhere even in the hospitals, doctors love to insult you & some of the police. If you get a good police officer, respect him & consider yourself lucky. Honestly, I would rather isolate myself than be around these jerkoholics & work. I love what I do & never bored, so I don't need these toxic people in my life!!

Amazing and excellent points. I felt manipulated in an interview for teaching post,the answers were right,but the main person was purposely twisting the meanings, disagreeing with what I said,really like I said black. And he would try to say why not white. It was in everything. This was because he wanted to hire his choice. So he was trying to influence the whole interview. Creating stress,pressuring for answers. If I asked questions to students, it's wrong. If I don't ask questions to students it's wrong too.

Lets see, Kristin told me how good I looked, a few times, wh3n we first hung out, now she is ignoring me, she seems to enjoy playing with my emotions, she only apologises about things that don't matter at all, she gives herself credit for empathy but these things never required. She can turn my apology around and make it mean nothing calling me a joke. She use to say I was lucky I had my business, luck had nothing to do with it. When I asked her about it again she said she didn't believe in luck but hard work. She has never taken blame for anything ever, never saying sorry for anything she actually did. Always making everything someone else's fault. It's amazing how good she is at turning everything around into my fault, she looks for things to take offence. She loves me in the morning and by the end of the day I'm a piece of shit. I can't believe my heart actually still loves her like a lot. Even the Bible says the heart is traitorous and will destroy you, well my loving heart nearly did, that is for sure!

One Sign if people treated you like shit, and you cant saiy what the do wrong, becouse you know that the dont care. People who thinks about manupulating others are physically ill, a normal person wouldnt even think about it.

Manipulation: The favourite weapon of a sociopath - I was married to one - she was the devil - and this video described her exactly! They are pure evil. In the end I got the best of this daemon - I got the kids and none of us have had a thing to do with her in 10 years and never will, she is the most miserable person on the planet and looks like hell now, so glad to be out a there I can tell you - Can not imagine waking up in the same bed and that miserable face is the first thing I see everyday! I like to think I dodged a bullet. Sad story but a necessary one. She was a total master manipulator!

I've had all of these things done to me, and for each time I was called a cold hearted S.O.B. . Especially the disagreeable and being blamed for something that I didn't do or say. The outcomes were not good for them. You can turn the table 180° degrees and force them to take responsibility for they're own actions.

Who manipulates the manipulators? and why?
Shqiponja Eti (1 month ago)
1. They don´t respect one´s/your own will, and do always try to change it, even when they earn nothing; because they earn power over you. They are actually the true sense of idots. 2. They are liars. From top to toa liars, they compliment you instead of being honest. And they claim they are honest, when they are actually being insulting, irrational and rude. 3. They want others to feel less worthy: lesser than them... 4. They manipulate to exploit, not to make you feel good...

This video describes my younger sister in a nutshell. She's such a master manipulator. Especially the tactic about using sarcasm/humor. She'll make some sort of comment that will hurt my feelings, I'll usually end up feeling guilty or embarrassed, will try to call her out and stand up for myself, but she'll get all offended say I'm being a brat and say she was only joking. She uses other tactics as well like sweet talking, being bossy towards her boyfriend and making him treat her like royalty, and loves being the center of attention. She could pull off being one of those slimy car salesmen guys she's so good at manipulating people.

Females are genetic carriers for Males into next life. If you cheat them then they will CURSE you. And i do not play games with females . Instead i make them know if they are willing to be a friend or more ??????? If they are not interested then i never approach them back. Its always better to be clear & transparent in relations. Friendship is not necessarily a LOVE INTEREST .

Brainy dose, The majority of your examples listed in this video are simply people's common, everyday ordinary behavior's! Some people are genuinely much kinder than others, more loving, giving, helpful, nurturing, complimenting ect. If people take your advice, their libel to lose a very special person because they believe the person was trying to manipulate them. Saying I love you is manipulation? I would suggest that you watch some YouTube videos on Narcissistic personality disorder if you want to understand what true manipulation is. Additionally, Gas Lighting abuse and Projection disorder.

Some manipulators can be very clever, or think they are anyway. I know one who will ask for money because of some emergency. If you say no, sorry, I just don't have any to spare. She won't get mad at all. She will not lead you to believe that your acceptance is dependent upon helping her. What she will do is say she understands and tell me she loves me etc. Then I feel even worse, and I think she knows that. It's possible that she could just be trying to be a good sport, but I sort of doubt it. I rarely ask for money, but whenever I've had to ask for help, I've always paid them back. She never pays me back.
Troy Carpenter (2 months ago)
