Publisher's Summary

Do you want to know what to look for when a manipulative person comes your way? Would you like to gain a better understanding of their methods to avoid getting involved in a manipulative relationship?

If you wish to prevent getting involved with people who are draining, debilitating, or disparaging, check out this book, which was specifically created to assist with these issues. Keep reading!

When somebody is manipulating you, they are, in effect, mentally pressuring you into doing something you would prefer not to do. Narcissistic manipulators tend to make clever comments on anything from your appearance to your experience to your personality flaws. These remarks are often camouflaged as joking or mockery and their goal is to make you feel insecure. By making you feel terrible, the manipulator is trying to mentally dominate you.

Manipulative individuals may come across as reasonable and earnest. However, they use this cunning approach to attract you and trap you in a relationship before revealing their true nature. They can be detached, forceful, or pleasant one moment and defiant the next. They won't let up until they wear you down. In their minds, it’s all about them, and what other people think, feel, and need doesn't matter in the least.

In Manipulation: Dark Psychology Ultimate Guide - How to Analyze People’s Personalities and Influence Anyone Using Mind & Emotional Control, Hypnosis, NLP, and Persuasion Techniques, Beatrice Shorts walks you through everything you need to know about recognizing and avoiding dark energies. This practical book teaches all about:

  • The nine qualities of manipulative personalities
  • How to read manipulative body language
  • How manipulators work, from guilt tripping to gaslighting, and everything in between
  • Safely getting out of a manipulative relationship
  • Using the six weapons of influence to your advantage
  • Advantages and disadvantages of Neuro-Linguistic Programming
  • The difference between hypnosis and manipulation
  • And much more!

Sociopaths can be enchanting. Manipulative individuals know how to sweet talk their victims and how to keep you interested in what they are saying. The good news is that their behavior patterns can be clearly identified, once you are aware of them. 

You deserve to be treated with respect; to express your feelings and needs; to say "no" without feeling regretful; and to shield yourself from being undermined physically, rationally, or inwardly.

The information and strategies presented in this guide will empower you with tips and tricks about how manipulative individuals operate. Don’t hesitate.

I have been struggling with negative thoughts, worries, anxiety for months. It got really bad last week where I was scared it was turning into depression. I needed to help myself fast. This book is a blessing!! It's explaining everything perfectly, why I feel the way I do. And it brings me hope and determination to change things around!! You control your mind, not the other way around!!

Explain in depth and various manipulation strateg

I have learned from this book is that facial expression plays an important role for us because this is where we show what we feel like fear, happy and surprise or even anger as well. Also, the tone and pitch of our voice play an important role too.

This book finally explained what I have been through so many years. I legit thought I was crazy.

I am a psychology student and this is a great book

I am a psychology student and this definitely is a great book to lay your eyes on. Controlling the mind Ala superhero may not be the case, but it will come in handy in a lot of situations. Body language, mannerism, and facial expression play a big role in conveying a message so it pays to know how this works. It is indeed non-verbal communication that people focus more on these days. So we should be able to understand what they are trying to say in order for us to get back to them and manipulate them.

This book was on point, educational

This book was on point, educational and essentially a well-ordered presentation of how manipulation functions and how to shield ourselves or use it for our advantage. On the off chance that you've at any point thought you were insane, or that you can't make sense of what's new with a man in your life, this book can offer assistance. I can unquestionably say that I'm not insane. My instinct was not off-base. I've been in love with an insane person for 5 long years!

Found this book to be very helpful. The strategies

Manipulation is overwhelmingly discredited as a trick to make people move in favor of ourselves. The book depicts that it is far more extensive than that and this book has a wide blend of tips and ventures to simply go ahead and hone it.

Found this book to be very helpful. The strategies

After listening to this book I've come to the realization that I have been a victim of these types of behaviors in relationships. I would say that I have had moments when I've used the "silent treatment", but after some thought, it was directly related to being invalidated for feeling the way that I feel.

This is the best book I have ever listen.

This is the best book I have ever listen. It helped me to get out of an abusive relationship, and without it I know I would have gone back. I have bought 5 copies of this book and continue to give them to friends and family.
