10 Signs You Are In A Relationship With A Manipulator
Many people live in a world where they are surrounded by manipulators. They don't know how to deal with these people and their fake acts. It's very important to these individuals as they are dangerous for your mental health. If you want to find out whether someone is manipulating you or not, there are ten signs that can help you determine this fact.
1. He never takes responsibility for his actions.
It’s very easy to blame others when things go wrong or when we do things that we know are not in our best interest. It’s a lot harder to take responsibility, but it’s the right thing to do and in the long run will make you a stronger person.
2. Manipulators is always charming and charismatic.
All manipulators have one thing in common: getting what they want no matter what it takes! Manipulators are masters at playing on these emotions to achieve their ends. They know how to read people, identify their weaknesses and use it to their advantage.
3. Manipulator’s apologies are insincere.
The manipulator will usually apologize for making you mad or upset. But this apology is generally insincere as the manipulator is not sorry for having hurt you with their words. Manipulators will often say something along the lines of ‘I am sorry that what I said hurt you’ but the real meaning of this statement is ‘I’m sorry I got caught'.
4. Manipulators is a habitual liar.
These are the people you have to watch out for and protect yourself from. These people will say anything it takes to get what they want. They don’t care who they hurt in the process. They are successful because what they say sounds so good that most people will believe them. The sad thing is that this is not limited to the real world. It happens online as well.
5. They make you feel extraordinary.
People who are good at building influence make you feel like you are the most important person in the world. That’s what manipulators do; they use a few psychological tricks to make you feel like they are the best friend that you ever had. In reality, they only want your attention.
6. They take advantage of your weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
Manipulators are very good at making themselves look good. They will tell you about their successes, and how much money they make. They’ll show you pictures of their “perfect family” and talk about how wonderful their life is. But it’s all a lie. They’re not easy to spot, but with the right knowledge, you can identify them from a mile away. For example:
You have a habit of saying “yes” when you mean “no”. Manipulators will use that against you. They will give you choices, but the choices are things that they want you to do.
You feel bad when someone rejects you. You don’t want to be disliked or rejected by anyone. So, manipulators will reject some.
7. Manipulators always have an excuse for everything.
One of the most frustrating things that you will be dealing with a manipulator is the excuse. It comes after every action that they take. This is one of the most important manipulative tactics that you need to be aware of because it can help you defend yourself against them. The more you get to know someone, the more you realize that they are not always who they seem.
8. They have a sense of entitlement.
A sense of entitlement is the belief that you deserve more out of life. Manipulators will always try to make you feel like you aren’t living up to your full potential, which is why they try to convince you that they know best. Always remember that no one is perfect, and that there are many things in life we don’t know.
9. The relationship is all about them.
Manipulators have a way of making you feel that the only reason they’re with you is to get something. No matter what you do for them, it’s never enough. They are emotional vampires, and their goal is always to gain power and control over you. These people look for relationships where they can strengthen their position and get something out of it. It could be money, attention, validation, sex, or anything else they want.
10. Manipulators play the victim card.
If you are manipulative and play the victim card, it will have serious negative consequences for your relationships. If a person is a manipulator, he or she will also engage in other negative and hurtful behaviors such as lying and cheating.
Most people think that manipulation is about getting something for yourself. That is not necessarily the case. Sometimes, manipulation is done to get something for someone else, like manipulation to get another person to do something they don’t want to do. This makes the person feel obligated and indebted to the manipulator.
