    I'll say this for now though, I'd say most people that are even a little bit mature, know when they're being manipulated. Or can feel it. One exception is lovers. Or worse, someone who loves the other more.

    My point is that if you really wanna get people to do your bidding, you'll have to earn their respect.

    Sure, I do think some types are less willing to say, "Hey bitch, stop trying to manipulate me!" but they probably know it's happening.

    I was gonna do a breakdown of how to do that for each Type. But I realized I only know a few types, haha. But I'll be back......



    Fun fact, hardest to manipulate: ENTJs, ENTPs. IMO.
    I'll eventually notice but by then it's really too late and the damage is done. but that's more emotional manipulation. intellectual or people saleing stuff i can recognize easier.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Infjs are easy to manipulate for awhile if they have let you in to their inner circle. They take awhile to process things, are reluctant to come to conclusions they can't back up, and will want to exhaust the variables within their control before giving up. They also can see things from multiple perspectives, find it difficult to determine which pieces of information merit the most weight until more time has passed, and see their own emotions as transient and unreliable. However, once the verdict is in, it's hard to change it. When they're done, they're done.

    Of course these are all gross generalizations, but I just am surprised at seeing INFP even making the list. Maybe every type has its own weaknesses where it can be manipulated...

    ^ I would agree with that, provided the person effectively got their foot in the door (demonstrated sound judgment) initially. (And also provided "India" was supposed to be "INFJs".)

    Honestly, I've seen INTJs bite rather questionable bait too. Not all of them, obviously, but I've known a couple who seemed quite naive/oblivious to someone taking advantage of them.

    Yeah. I think I see what you mean. Rigid types in mentality are the easiest to manipulate. Typically, people that feel they can't be manipulated can be.

They like to understand people and understanding sometimes have to be done without calling people on their bullshit.
    If you are open to the possibility of being manipulated then it is easier to see. I would say it is more difficult to manipulate a xxxx 9 because they don't reveal as much of their thinking. Just because something is not directly stated or made obvious doesn't mean counter-measures are not taking place.

    Usually I can see how someone has rehearsed a long standing line that worked as a manipulative tool for other people in their circle. Sometimes I don't care if someone is manipulating me depending on the type of manipulation and other times I just drop that person like a hot stone and move on. If INFJs are as good at reading people as their reputation stereotypically deems them to be able to do, then I would say INFJs aren't a likely candidate for such undermining.

    I think I'm more of a manipulator than being manipulated. This thread would be a good example of a tool of manipulation to see who will come forward and admit to being manipulated and to see who thinks they can manipulate who.

    Emotional manipulation is my weakness... I'm screwed against INFPs and ESFPs. For some reason, ISFPs and ENFPs aren't anywhere near as successful.

    I manipulate my family members all the time by predicting their reactions.

    The mythologized, innate resistance to manipulation that I'm supposed to have as a Ni-dom is overrated. I've learned from experience, too.
