Publisher's Summary

Dark Psychology

This book studies the parts of ourselves that none of us want to recognize. Within this field, our innermost demons are delved into, and a light is shone on the places that we would rather not see but need to see. Dark psychology accepts and embraces the darker side of the human experience. In this way it is doing the same as any area of anthropocentric study does, the only difference lying in dark psychology’s specialty of this dark reality within the human animal. Dark psychology is not meant to be a pageant of villains, however. Specialists within this field do their work in order to better understand why and how malevolent people work toward their ends, not out of some attempt to gain fame for themselves and or to idolize the more monstrous among us. It is also important to keep in mind that each and every one of us has a dark or “evil” side of our own psychology. 

Manipulation

Do you know people who are forever pushing your buttons to get you to do think and act in a way you wouldn’t otherwise do for fulfilling their personal agenda? Don’t you wish you also possessed the super power of persuasion, influencer, and manipulation that can allow you to get people to do exactly what you want? Don’t you wish you possessed the ability to convince, influence, manipulate, and persuade people to do think and act as you want them to? Imagine how wonderful it would be if you could get people to act and think in the larger interest of a situation or humanity. Manipulation isn’t always the negative thing it is often made out to be. Think of it as a tool that can be used to create as well as destroy. The choice is yours.

Though manipulation has fundamentally negative connotations, it can also be harnessed to accomplish positive outcomes. Using the powerful tips, techniques, and strategies mentioned in this book, a person can become an effective influencer, manipulator, persuader, negotiator, salesperson, and orator.

Here are some of the things you will take back from the book:

  • Shockingly effective psychological techniques for manipulating, persuading, and influencing people.
  • The art of speaking and communicating in a way that people can’t help but listen to every word you say!
  • Proven verbal and non-verbal communication skills to enhance your manipulation prowess.
  • How manipulators use neuro linguistic programming to change a person’s entire thought process.
  • Detecting manipulation in your everyday life and personal relationships, and strategies to safeguard against it.
  • Clever techniques for outsmarting manipulators

Sharpen the art of influencing, manipulating, and persuading people today by mastering the finer strategies of manipulation.

The majority of the data exceptionally

The majority of the data exceptionally basic for our life. This book professes to uncover the privileged insights of dim brain research however it seems to have been composed by somebody with a non-scholastic simple information of brain science. It examines ideas like narcissism which are not really a strategy of mental control. This is a non-scholarly prologue to the most essential of mental strategies. generally speaking incredible listen. I like it.

way too academic

for me, way too academic a string of definitions with little to no application. very difficult to process before author quickly moves very fast through text book definitions, for that very dry. would have helped if author could define a con then apply real life application. It's as if the author was honestly cramming too many definitions in this audio book as you could possible with a topic as complex as this I wish the author spent more time explaining through the concepts rather than just reading a series of ext book definitions

Boring

The content is boring without actual real life examples. In the realm of psychology there are always great examples that can be incorporated in a dry subject. Examples makes listener learn the content better. This book is missing that. Also the narrator is monotone. This is another reason why I found the book boring.

This book provides all you need

This book provides all you need to know in terms of what drives people to act so harshly sometimes. Was a real eye opener. Only thing missing were the authors credentials; ie even he’s not a licensed therapist, it would’ve been nice to know where he got his information.
