We hear about all different kinds of people and personalities but today it occurred to me that we never hear or talk about the Manipulators. Do you know one? I think we all do. They are the people that try and manipulate virtually everyone into doing what THEY want.
Actually I was listening to talk radio today while traveling in the car for business. A lady came on talking about dealing with these people. She gave examples of how somebody's mother might try and manipulate them into coming home for Christmas even though they might have other plans like going Snow Skiing.
She also told how it takes a lot of courage to stand up to manipulators and how most people don't. She is right. We all get manipulated by people every day, because we don't want to make them mad or disappoint them. Because of this we end up doing all sorts of things we don't want to just because we are afraid of feeling guilty.
Do you know a Manipulator?
