For few people out there, it is quite easy to lend their ears- lending it to every corner of your world! We call them manipulators, and we certainly know how to deal with them.
Manipulation is a psychological disease because it is very difficult for some to overcome the urge of regressive exploitation. Though manipulation is not always negative, as we can find some really diligent manipulators in the business world, but when pushed to a certain limits, the same element can become slightly unbearable. The worst part of psychological manipulation is related to the effects that it has over the heart.
So how are you going to deal with manipulators? Let’s unravel the answer to this simple question!
1.Don’t let them know about your weaknesses
Their weapon to exploitation is your weakness! Don’t give them the liberty to sense your weaknesses.
2. Try understanding their hidden ‘self-centered’ motive:
The urge to exploitation that a manipulator feels is more than just entertainment. There is a ‘self-centered’ motive that wants to harm you. Try understanding this motive!
3. Be honest to self and people- it will kill them:
Your honesty and believability will kill them- nothing is more frustrating and guilt-ridden than that to exercise dishonesty in the face of somebody’s honesty.
4. Communicate more often with them:
It will make them weak, and it will discourage their taste for manipulation. Keeping it as simple as that 🙂
5. Follow your heart and instinct:
The kind of confidence that a person shows on ‘self’ is a very strong message for anyone who is trying to calculate your worth. Give them a straightforward message that yes I have trust, love and care for myself- I know my instinct- I will follow my heart, and rest you will see the results.
6. Even in manipulation, expect excellence:
Never underestimate the worth or caliber of a person- no matter how cunning or manipulating they might be! Expecting excellence from an enemy is the best way to stay prepared.
7. No stupid play!
Diamond cuts diamond– and only a smarter person can deal with manipulators! Prepare yourself people- get ready for the war time.
