I Am Manipulative

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 82 People

    If I want a certain outcome to something,

    I make it happen through a series of events. Sometimes the manipulation succeeds, other times it doesn't. The fun part is the outcome, it always is - see if your efforts have paid off or not... Or maybe it rewarded you with more than expected?

    I've been described as a manipulative,

    toxic person. I rarely take no for an answer, unless I'm asking for consent in a sexual situation. I dig and probe and pry for answers when I want to get to know someone. I don't mean to be this way, but it's just kinda how things turned out. I can be very kind and caring and...

    Mental Persuasion

    I have a natural talent for being able to persuade people to take action. I can subtly implant ideas in their mind so that they think that the idea began with them. This is especially useful at work when I want people to come on board with projects. I know what I'd like them to...

    I am so manipulative in all my relationships I

    manipulate guys to believe they can't be without me. And when we fight I manipulate them into coming back when they probably should run the other way. I'm such an ******* I don't know why I do it.. It's wrong to manipulate people but I don't think they would stay otherwise.

    People’s gullibility & willingness to believe

    that I have their best intentions in mind is most likely why I'm able to get away with so much. How can you look at a person, regardless of their age or gender, and believe they are not capable of an ongoing, everyday malice? Underestimation has forever been man’s downfall.

    I Don't Mean to

    I tend to manipulate situations to achieve a desired effect or benifit me in someway. I don't even realize I'm doing it at the time. As far as I know it's never hurt anyone. I wouldn't want to do that.

    Again, My Life.

    I know just what to say and do to get people on my side. I'll play the game by the rules, but then squish you like a ******* bug if I think I'm going to lose. Bad habit.

    I Dont Do This All The Time Tho

    But it is pretty simple... if you are a good actor. You have to make the emotions you are pretending to display look and feel legit. Best way to do this is to make yourself believe that "This is that" so to speak. Also you must know what to say, when to say it, and how to say it...

    Actually I'm not really.

    It comes from a good place. I'm just trying to get my way. Because that'll benefit you. Trust me? What? You're so beautiful. Wow. Anyone ever tell you? I wish I was.

    I Just Realized Today...

    That I'm quite manipulative. Not in a malevolent way... I'd never manipulate anyone in a way that would hurt them.

    It's all I seem to be capable of.

    I lie often, not only with words but with expressions and emotions and small little things that people notice unconsciously that manage to add that cherry on top, making it the perfect recipe for manipulation. I hardly even think about it, it flows so easily, like a pencil...

    So... Is it bad that I manipulate/control/mess

    with people's emotions and find so much pleasure in doing so? . Is this issue offset by my desire to save lives though financial aid/education/charity? . Does this issue become an asset if the only reason why I can save lives is by manipulating others to make them share their...

    Sometimes, today I talked to my parents about

    getting my own bedroom and they said they're too busy with Christmas gifts and that it would take a long time to clear out the spare room.
