Are you good at manipulating people? (This isn't asking if you do manipulate people, just if you can.)

I can usually get people to do what I want.

It's too easy if you really think about it. The art of persuasion can be obtained and used by almost anyone. The danger is getting someone who has the same sources as you. It makes me mad lol.

In daily life, yes. I'm part salesman and while I do make an effort to upsell, I only do so when I honestly believe that upsell is of great benefit to the customer I'm working with.

It seems dishonest to manipulate people, but I'll admit to having done it. I don't know that I'm good at it or anything. Such things are usually easy to spot. If you get caught then you're not good at it, right?

I can be convincing, but not manipulative.

You're very logical and to a logical person logic is very persuasive.

I am never that obvious. You will be doing it without knowing I want you to. :)

Oh oh. We've been miscommunicating then. So I wasn't supposed to kill those people?

It was CALL them, not kill them. You aren't very good at this.

I don't think that I am. I'm okay with that.

Sometimes. I don't usually have to. If I want something I usually just do it myself.

I've been told that can be. But I don't try to be. There's a fine line between being manipulative and just being assertive.
