    I ask this now before the tipping point after which posts traditionally are edited or removed.

    with this thread?? "Aww man, I can't get ENOUGH emotional manipulation!!! Me and my friends do this all the time! It's our favorite past time! While other friends are out there on roller-coasters or in bars and book clubs and other things friends do, we're so above that! We love to try to play a game to see who feels the baddest and most guilty and broken in the end! It's all in the name of psychology!!"

    I think ultimately only I control (or even understand) my emotions and as such manipulation by an outside force is difficult to begin with.

    If a person wants to try to manipulate me then he is free to do so. If he succeeds, then more power to him.

    You'd think so, wouldn't you? And yet, people continue trying to emotionally manipulate others and people continue allowing others to manipulate them.

    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    Don't care. Where there's emotional chaos, there's a golden parachute out of it.

    I was thinking about the environments in which this most strongly operates and it seems to often be connected to the level of ego investment. The most extreme environments that have manipulation (which tends to have an emotional component) are the most competitive environments. It seems like it is the sense of self that is toyed with in these scenarios - either through flattery and building up the ego, or through criticism, fear, insecurity, even guilt that makes people questions themselves.

    It can have effective short-term results for people, but I think the long-term results are that communication is completely distorted to the point that it becomes cumbersome and constantly unclear. People become overly defensive which perpetuates the manipulation in these negative feedback loops. More could be said, but that probably sums it up a bit. My point is that I don't think manipulation is primarily about emotion, but ego.

    edit: Also there is some sort of correlation between manipulation and false ideas and statements. Lies need help to perpetuate and so I think that is a primary role of manipulation - to help perpetuate falseness. I think the most prevalent forms of manipulation are bragging, dismissing, snap judgments, humiliating, insults, etc. Pretty much anything inauthentic or untrue.
