Your boss is constantly puts pressure on you, and achieves the desired. In the store you bought something, that you would not bought for yourself, but the seller offered you and you said "Yes". Well... You swallowed the bait of experienced and dexterous manipulators.
Manipulation is the attitude of a person intended to influence another person to achieve certain goals.
It is the way in which an individual “uses” another person (unconsciously) due to the subtlety of the manipulator, or to scare (consciously), because it will help the manipulator achieve his desire or what else he is interested in.
Manipulators and their vices
These individuals are people who will never give you no thanks after they get what they wanted from you. They tend to earn the label of manipulators, and unfortunately, society is full of them. Such people are very skilled making you have a doubt about your capabilities, feeling vulnerable or worse than others. The ability to distort the beliefs of others strengthens them at the time of convincing yourself you cannot do anything or that you should make as they have told you, because only they know how things and events are going to develop.
The strength of manipulators’ mastery depends on the emotional exploitation that is, they just manage your emotions making you guilty, and that is a great start to end with giving up your desires. So this is the way the manipulators get to take control of their prey, finding reward by a well calculated manner.

1. They are specialized in detecting the weaknesses of others
Absolutely everyone has weaknesses, which are the instrument used to hurt you, because if you hesitate in what you believe, if there is something that may shame you and you want to hide it, manipulative person will try to find it out and, if such occasion occurs, he can use it on against you.

3. They are insatiable
Manipulation makes them feel powerful and, as it often happens with power, they always want more. The moral principles are somewhat damaged for them, but their manipulative capacity can provide them reach their goal by making use of the merits of others. Those persons are full or an ambition that like the drug gives them a kind of addiction.
4. They need control
The manipulators usually suffer the so-called superiority complex; usually they are people who have all the egocentrism and narcissism features. They like to outdo themselves and overcome the level reached earlier in search of ever greater challenges. However, people who feel the need to consider themselves much superior to others, even perfect beings, prospering through the merits of others, show a certain insecurity which coated with the appearance of power, but that it a deep den for an overwhelming fear to appear weak.
Are all the manipulators similar?
The manipulation is an art. And if all the manipulators are artists, each of them has his own style. We can say that the manipulating talent consists of different skills and abilities, so now we should recognize different types.
1. The instigator
A typical example. He flaunts not only force, but also а certain aggressiveness. In this case, if you are a passive person pray for not facing with him.
2. The debunker
The narcissism of this person is especially marked. He just feels perfect, is a white blackbird, who has never broken a plate. He is absolutely conscious of his worth, his rules are of the main importance.
3. The interpreter
This particular type is extremely harmful, especially speaking about a group of people, because, for instance, whatever it will be - a work or family -, it is a person, who always extracts your words and changes their meaning, so other people can consider you kind of a liar.
4. The victim
In this case the world has hurt him a lot, he never ceases to complain that everything bad happens to him and ask yourself "why me?". This person focuses a lot on his own pain, shielding his real attitudes and behaviors reprehensible under victimhood, is always the most unfortunate. This type of behavior is generally known as Job's syndrome.
5. The remora
This is a kind of manipulator, who uses your own ego. He let you fell yourself more stronger than he is, of course. Because he is just a weak and clumsy being, unable to do anything. While you can do this instead of him, so you will end up doing what he cannot.
