A must for psychology, psychiatry, sociologists,

This is a helpful book,to begin inside everything about control. Everything in this book keep well and clearly have defined. This detailed book can make them above to understand that how to recognize emotional control, deception and persuasion.

The biggest key when you are manipulating someone is to refrain from dropping into “guilt mode.” You do not want to try to make them feel guilty, nor do you want to deny the person’s feelings. Trying to make the person feel guilty will make them look right, as we tend to become defensive when we are guilty of something ourselves. Saying things like “You really think that about me?” or “Do you really think I would do that?” or “I can’t believe you would say that about me!” or anything else that would try and place the blame on them makes it apparent that you are feeling guilty about something. They will immediately think that you are guilty of manipulating them and then they will lose trust in you.

The vivid imagery on specific patterns of mind control and pathways to success. Very knowledge-based read . I enjoyed this book wholeheartedly.

Gets to the heart of the problem!

This book, along with several others in the subject, has changed my life.I read and was just like, nope, just didn't do it. Also certain aspects of NLP that were mentioned in the book were missing like, embedded commands and pacing and leading. What this book does do though is that it allows you to take control of your thinking. The "If You Get Caught" chapter alone is worth the read for anyone with a fear, or anxiety in any situation. For someone who wants more confidence in any situation, a more positive attitude, better motivation. If you are talking to an emotion-driven person, you need to tailor your body language to ensure that it is more expressive and receptive. Think almost on the level of an actor or actress, and how they have to elaborate their body language to convey the position of their character in each scene. You want to be very expressive in how you are feeling. If you are happy, keep your posture upright and stay light on your feet. Smile, use elaborate hand gestures and allow your face to openly express every emotion you are feeling. If you are not happy, let your posture fall, drop your shoulders, and close yourself off somewhat. Let your smile fade away, stop using as many hand gestures, and allow your body to express the emotion you are feeling once more. You want to be expressive but not fake, so try and make sure that your body language is not overdone, but noticeable. This will ensure that your target sees your expression and relates to you through their emotional drive.

When in Doubt, Choose this Book

Good book to know about how you can boost your confidence and improve social skills and control or avoid the shyness. and the field of dark psychology is unfortunately still not fully explored. In other words, people are not talking about it enough, and that puts those unsavory characters in an advantage.

Manipulation is fundamentally the art of getting others to do exactly what you want them to not necessarily by paying attention to their desires or in extreme cases even harming them. It comprises a series of techniques such as charm, charisma, hypnotism, persuasion, trickery, coaxing, misinformation and much more.

True manipulation is not the art of forcing people to give you what you want and making them feel guilty or shameful if they don’t. True manipulation is learning how to go beyond the conscious mind’s natural tendency of not wanting to trust people that the person doesn’t know and teaching their subconscious mind that you are trustworthy and that it is safe to agree with you. When you use manipulation in this way, you simply use psychology to your advantage and manipulate the person into thinking or behaving in the way that you desire for them to think or behave. You are not forcing them into anything or creating a situation where they feel guilty or shameful for not agreeing with you. Instead, you are making it so that there truly is no reason for them not to agree with you because you took the time to analyze who they are, what they need, and how you can make your offer or request a solution rather than a pitch.

Unlike persuasion, manipulation occurs at a deeper and subconscious level. It is carried out by attempting to change to the fundamental beliefs and experiences of people to get them to do what we want. This can be done by using a variety of raw and sophisticated methods ranging from hypnotism to seduction or top-notch verbal skills. It is sometimes performed by distorting someone’s idea of reality to get them to think and do what we want them to. People will then start behaving and thinking about reality precisely as the manipulator wants them to.

Absolutely the best book I bought in the year


This book has an incredible amount of important information in it. It has resonated with me so much, that I underlined almost half of the paraghraphs, so that I can get back to back to them. Well and clearly written and perfectly summing up the cycle of narcissistic abuse. After reading this book, I have a way less doubts of the abusive nature of my past relationship and the validity of my feelings about it. They are still living in denial, sadly, as I was for more than three decades. Desiring for others to have their 'blinders' removed to see manipulation for what it truly is. Thank you Daniel Pratt, from the bottom of my healing heart! The best way to really maximize relatability is to have a healthy mixture of authentic stories, reciprocated stories, and “me too” or agreements in your conversation. You want to be agreeing and relating to your target’s story as often as you want to have them agreeing and relating to your story. This will make it feel like the connection is mutual and that you feel as though you are relating to them as much as they are to you. If you are unsurprised at the relation or if you are not acting as though you are happy that you are feeling as though you are relating to them, they may catch on that you are manufacturing your part specifically for the conversation. This can completely ruin your chances. So, make it seem very even and mutual, even though you know that you are completely in control.

Wow! I love it!

Well done! I like this one! The book suggests several approaches of which lived with my personality, I am ranking it as good listen as education of what approaches sales people might be using dealing with you. My time is too valuable to deal with someone who is not reasonable. Establishing a similarity or using guilt sounded more likely to be successful.

Will expose the truth about manipulative people!

Manipulation is a powerful strategy that allows you to bypass negotiations and objections and get anything you want with minimal timing and minimal effort. As long as you understand how manipulation works and what skills are required, getting your way with virtually everything is effortless. This book is perfect for anyone who wants to harness the power of manipulation.

Analysis techniques are simple observation techniques that you can use on a whim to get a sense of who someone is and what they are thinking at any given time. This is your opportunity to get a feel for a person’s personality and really understand what types of things would drive them to make various decisions. You are going to then use this information later when it comes to manipulation. Because of how helpful this information is, it is important that you be sure to analyze as effectively as you can. In some situations, you may not be granted a lot of time to analyze a person. In others, you may have ample time. Either way, the following strategies are excellent for helping you get a sense of who someone is and what you need to do in order to get what you want or need from them.

Analysis can take days, or it can take minutes. If you are trying to analyze your boss at work to get a feel for what you need to do to get a raise, for example, you might find that you have ample time to get a sense of who they are and what is required in order for them to make a decision. Alternatively, if you want to negotiate a sale or get a better deal if you are the one buying, you may not have terribly long to actually invest in analyzing. For that reason, it is important that you know how you can use simple and effective strategies that give you answers quickly. Then, if you do find that you have ample timing, you can continually use these skills to build confidence in your answers to ensure that you are well-informed before you approach someone for any given reason. If you are ready to learn about simple and effective analysis strategies, let’s get started.

The easiest way to prevent yourself from getting caught is to practice often and with small targets and intentions. As you build your confidence, go ahead and work your way up to larger things. Otherwise, be very careful and intentional about how you word yourself and about how you use your strategies. The more practiced you are, the easier it is to execute it when you actually need to. You will learn more about exactly how you can practice maintaining secrecy in Chapter 8.

Solution and Action Driven

It was such a relief to see the feelings that the victim experiences laid out so clearly along with the characteristic behaviors of the psychopath. I've experienced every one of them. I just bought the book today and have already read it twice. I also highly recommend the author's website psychopathsandlove.com. I think I finally have the courage to end my emotionally abusive relationship. Just like body language, the vocabulary you use will need to be adjusted depending on who you are talking to. As you may have noticed in the manipulation step, there are specific words and phrases you want to use depending on who you are talking to. This will ensure that you are speaking verbally on the same level as your target, too. Unlike body language, however, your verbal cues can be adjusted to accommodate both primary and secondary profile types. Below, you will find a full list of examples and explanations on how to adjust your vocabulary for each personality type. To add the secondary personality type, you want to stay true to your primary personality type’s vocabulary but whenever possible add in cues from their secondary personality type. This will ensure that you effectively speak to them completely in their own language. Anyone involved in a psychopathic relationship will immediately recognize it for what it is. Overall this is an excellent guide. This is an essential guide for everyone. I'm going to best rating this good content book.

Understand and Counteract Manipulators Tactics

This is a very good read and have enjoyed following along with this book.This book also prepares some immediate techniques for completing things the way where it must be done, by influencing everyone around us with the data they uninhibitedly offer by strategies for their non-verbal correspondence eccentricities and other non-verbal sign. If you will truly advance your skill as a manipulator, you must know how to prevent yourself from getting caught. Recovering yourself from getting caught is a skill all on its own, and when done right you can actually put yourself right back into the position of being able to manipulate the person all over again. Many people are unaware of the necessary action required if you get caught. The reality is that recovering yourself is easy, but it is also a delicate process. You have to be very intentional and specific about how you do it, or you may end up burying yourself further and making it impossible for you to recover. Then, you lose your trustworthiness and credibility and may even tarnish your reputation, further damaging your ability to manipulate anyone in the future. If you get caught, follow these steps. This is a very good read and have enjoyed following along with this book.

People also feel an overpowering guilt in their partners by saying something like, “It is all right, I didn’t expect anything else from you.” This implies that he or she is always letting you down, and you do not really expect anything better than that from them.

Learn darker aspects of psychology

Great book! Nice!

I love this book! Such a vital listen! Essentially contemplating manipulative strategies can empower us to refuse surrendering to them. I find this book a relevant and suitable listening especially when our planet is getting crazy for all intents and purposes every last day. A segment of the methodology is suitable with people who are pitiful and have low certainty. Knowing mischievousness infers knowing how to beat it, so I can use my despicable powers for good.
