    Default How to manipulate people via their functions.

    Do you think our inferior Function determines our "weaknesses" and what could be an excellent source for manipulation?

    (I don't know, just throwing random idea out.)

    Hypothetically, I think it's easier to push their dom-function buttons really, if you wanna manipulate. You can use the inferior I guess, to push their panick buttons, but the dom function is something they constantly use and feels so natural to them that they won't even notice it, I'd say.

    Makes sense in Socionics. The PoLR is all the trouble and "pain", and essentially makes someone weak and easy to manipulate, if you're the one mastering it.

    I'm more inclined to think this as well. People want to avoid their Inferior. They cling to their Primary. So exploit the weakness(es) of the Primary. We constantly see people with flaws in their approach to things because they focus too much on their preferred perspective and can't see around/past it.

    Fear or desire..
    Know what these are in a person and you can manipulate them.
    I don't know if functions play any role in this.

    Nobody could manipulate my Dominant. Nor the inferior. You could piss me off on that level and make me betray Fi, but that's about it. Aux, I suppose..?

    Oh, you can't possibly believe that's correct.
