Summary

Do you sometimes feel uncomfortable around people and have a really hard time understanding their "real intentions"? Your colleague says he agrees, but does he really, or is it only a facade? Have you ever thought you were going crazy, or do you have a feeling you are being used, manipulated, or played?

If you answered "Yes" to at least one of the questions above, you are absolutely not alone. Most people have real trouble recognizing false statements and differentiating fake from real emotions, even with the people close to them.

Sure, the small little lie about how awesome Grandma’s homemade pie tastes will not really hurt and might even be necessary for smooth human relationships. But lying can also have tremendous potential for harm, hurt feelings, or catastrophic business decisions.

Diary studies of lying, conducted with both college students and adults from the community, have shown that lies are a fact of daily life (DePaulo, Kashy, Kirkendol, Wyer & Epstein, 1996). Such studies suggest that people tell an average of at least one lie a day and describe their untruths as little lies of little consequence.

They perceive their lies as not very serious, they rarely plan their lies, and they do not worry much about the possibility of getting caught, even if the consequences to the people they lied to might be dramatic (DePaulo, Ansfield, Kirkendol & Boden, 2004).

Therefore, the skill to differentiate lies from the truth becomes critical and can be of tremendous value for anyone.

In Dark Psychology Secrets, you’ll discover:

  • The six little-known facts to instantly kick-start your understanding of why and how people manipulate (even if you are a bit socially awkward or don’t seem to "get" people’s true self easily!)
  • The exact formula to recognize the different stimuli that make people tick and that are founded in reason and science, not a pure "gut feeling"
  • Why these common traits reveal so much about the manipulator without his/her knowledge
  • How these three ways lead to becoming a manipulator’s victim - and how to stop any tries in the beginnings
  • Why these verbal expressions carry way more weight than you have ever thought 
  • The biggest myth busted: if we all have a dark side and how to deal with our own dark psychology if there is one
  • Why these 10 tips on how to deal with manipulative people are so unfamiliar yet so powerful in practice
  • The absolute worst three things you might be misinterpreting currently that could cause you tremendous confusion and trouble
  • And much, much more!

Even if you are a complete beginner and have a hard time to naturally get the manipulation, the extensive research that went into this guide and the practical applications and exercises will instantly boost your abilities to analyze and understand deceptions and lies on a completely different level.

Good book worth the buy

I would have given it five stars because the information was spot on, but I didn't like how the writer sounded biased about god and religion, it almost seemed like he was insinuating all believers are disillusioned

Great book but it’s hard to listen to

I would buy this book because the book is one I like, but listening to it by this narrator is not easy. I hope this book comes out on Audible with a new narrator.

Surprisingly a more interesting audiobook.

Surprisingly a more interesting audiobook than I was expecting. I found this book very intriguing as it helps you learn how to work with people’s mind and take advantage of their innermost feeling and wants and get whatever we want from them. Highly recommended!!
