If you feel lost, or perhaps dependent on others, then you might be the victim of manipulation. You might feel like others control you too easily, or perhaps you end up in situations you try to wish your way out of. If you often feel lost, or like others have too much power over you, it’s time to start identifying the ways that you might be being manipulated. 

Manipulation is a dangerous tool in the hands of anyone. Those who are aware of their influence over other people can use it for good, to lead others and help a community thrive. It can also be used to take advantage of people, and unfortunately, this is the path that many choose.

Stanley Milgram’s psychological study on the influence people can have over each other proves that anyone can be manipulated under the right circumstances.

It’s never easy for an individual to admit that they might be the victim of manipulation, but it’s an important step in order to recover from the damage manipulation has caused. Those that have been manipulated often feel like they don’t have a strong individual sense. They might become codependent on the person that has manipulated them for so long.

It can be a hopeless feeling for a person to realize they have been manipulated. Although it’s not always easy to overcome, breaking free of manipulation is possible. There are a few important steps it takes to become free of manipulation in one’s life.

First, they have to confront the fact that they have been manipulated. They then have to figure out who is doing the manipulation and how it’s being done. After that, they have to confront the manipulator as well as the issue that has caused the problematic situation.

The book will aim to explore what manipulative behavior is at its core. In Persuasion, you will discover:

  • How you are being manipulated
  • What happens to victims of manipulation
  • The profile of a manipulator
  • How your map of reality is created
  • Ways you're being subliminally persuaded
  • What a cold reading is
  • How to confront your manipulator

And much, much more!

The more you know about manipulation, the better you’ll be able to stop it, even if you don’t think you’re being significantly manipulated.

The book will also discuss two more very insidious and dangerous ways that someone might manipulate others. The first one is by using NLP tactics, which basically aims to alter the beliefs and ideas of a person. The last method of manipulation discussed is that of subliminal persuasion. This is a very dangerous form of manipulation that goes unnoticed by most people.

Grab this book and discover the dark secrets of persuasion and manipulation today.
