    Eh. I mainly find it amusing in a pathetic sort of way when I notice it, and if I don't notice it until it's too late then I really have nobody to blame but myself for being too trusting. I generally think I'm able to sniff it out pretty well, due to a lot of exposure while growing up but it's unfortunately led me to become an untrusting individual and nearly incapable of accepting positive praise without becoming suspicious.

    So I voted for honeybadger ain't care.

    Despise it. Granted, there is sometimes a fine line between emotional conversation/action that can be considered "manipulation" and "expression", but anything that comes down on the line of emotional manipulation (especially using guilt or the "if you loved me you would <X>, *sob*" tactics to try and force me to do something) I find repugnant.

    Unfortunately, I've had both of those (and other) tactics used on me before, and I'm not very good at fending them off. Even as much as it angers me that someone I care about would use that sort of thing on me, it works (in the short term). I don't really have much defense against it, other than to just completely reject someone, and I don't enjoy that either (and sometimes it's not an option -- family, etc.). But there are very few, if any, behaviors that someone can exhibit that will turn me away from them faster, or more permanently, than trying to manipulate me like that. Yeah, drop this on me in the heat-of-the-moment, and you'll probably get your way -- I'm not fast enough on my feet on those situations to defuse them gracefully. But don't expect me to have much to do with you after that.

    Tough. If you think something's for my own good, tell me so. Explain yourself. I'm a pretty reasonable person, and I'll listen. I may not agree, but I'll give you a chance. I will be *far* more offended at the tactic than I will be appreciative for the motivation.

    Agreed. In using emotional manipulation "for your own good" denotes a superior to inferior inflection, where the other person "knows best" and you can't possibly gauge what's good for you.

    Hopefully other NTs can agree. Plus, SF is the shadow of an NT.

    I'd be surprised to find ANY type that appreciates emotional manipulation.


    My opinion—nothing ending in manipulation is ever turns out good.

    This is a no-brainer. You would have to be retarded to vote "yes, I'm a big fan of being maninpulated!" So why the poll and the dramatism? Unless you're trying to make a point to/about someone in a passive-aggressive way. Which is pure emotional manipulation.
    Oh.
