Summary

Are you tired of being manipulated? Are you interested in manipulating someone? Do you want to know secrets of dark psychology?

If that’s the case, this book is the right book for you. This book will be your guide in learning manipulation and dark psychology. In many ways, beyond deception, manipulation hints at and implies the existence of the other tools of dark psychology. Dark psychology is ultimately a method for better manipulation.

If you Google “dark psychology” and click through the first few articles, you will see immediately that almost every source on dark psychology uses manipulation several to many times, and that in most cases, it is a subheading within the article, or even in the subtitle to the article itself! This illustrates how significant manipulation is to dark psychology, and how broadly the two are connected. In fact, as was hinted at above, manipulation could itself be split into several subcategories. Obviously, one would be deception, which was already covered. Machiavellianism, reverse psychology, and semantics could also be described to some extent or another as kinds of covert aggression.

This book covers:

  • Theoretical overview
  • Historical overview
  • Dark triad personalities
  • Differences between persuasion and emotional manipulation
  • What emotional manipulation is
  • Dealing with manipulation in a relationship
  • Persuasion methods
  • Hypnosis and hypnotherapy
  • Brainwashing
  • How to protect yourself against emotional predator
  • Tips to read and analyze people
  • Mind control
  • Mind control techniques
  • Assuming success
  • How to use dark psychology in your daily life
  • And much more

All forms of manipulation could be described as covert aggression because manipulation is inherently an aggressive social tactic. The proof of this is in the word "aggression" itself. Forms of aggression are, at their core, about exerting power over another person or animal. If drivers shout aggressively at other cars to move because the drivers of those others car cut them off, those drivers are aggressive because they want to impose their will. They demand because they want the other drivers to move. In other words, manipulation functions the same way. Unlike other forms of aggression, though, it has a secondary aim: to avoid detection. 

This also speaks to the dark or sinister core of manipulation; it is always about power, and power is always, on some levels, angry and forceful. This is as true for semantic manipulation, a technique that can seem not just easygoing but even agreeable, like Machiavellianism, a worldview named for a famously cynical and power-hungry author and politician. 

To slow it down so as not to miss anything, we will unpack the concept of semantic manipulation. Chances are you have experienced this method of manipulation in your life several times. It is, stated simply, when someone insists understanding words to mean something other than what they normally mean, as means of reframing and controlling social interactions.

Best Ever.

People always underestimated me for not being a person who did not convey security, but since I bought this book, I learned what it takes to be an influential person and to convey my thoughts and have others follow me. I am no longer underestimated; on the contrary, now I have the respect of society.

Supper Book.

The books are extremely interesting. I purchased only because title was catchy-but having listen books, wonder how I could have survived without the useful knowledge in each of the books. I believe that purchasing books was a wise decision.

Dark psychology is the art and science of manipulation and mind control. If you understand dark psychology, you understand why people behave in predatory ways towards each other.

Great Book Overall.

The subject matter is serious, albeit under a strangely titled genre. I have come across many people in my life who have exhibited several of the traits discussed in this book. It's pretty eerie.
