How to- manipulate people

I found this article on Lifehacker, it's funny because Stefan does exactly according to this article.  Before I got banned from the site I had some reason he was doing these things because his own follower was trying to manipulate me.  I doubt these people knew consciously they were trying to manipluate me.  They even get angry when I didn't agree with that idea.  One go was so upset he started few posts pertain to which him and I posted.  He did confuse earlier on that he was wrong.  I guess someone convinced back in unconsciousness.

Welcome to the forum CrazyCanuck.

How very fitting of Stefan Molyneux this is indeed! He definitely read the same handbook. The following is particularly applicable (my bold):

Quote
If you believe trust is an issue, the quickest way around that problem is to share something very personal and very private with the target. It's always best if it's relevant to them, or if they feel you trust them enough to confide something so personal. It's not important that your story is true, but that they believe it. Again, acting is key.

The biggest enemy you'll have when trying to manipulate another person is doubt. If they don't notice something fishy about your behavior, they might start to notice that they're not acting like themselves. Hopefully, at this point, you've managed to learn a few of their problems and what they want to change about their lives. If they openly question the way they're acting, remind them that change is often uncomfortable but they need to go through this tumultuous period in their lives to make positive progress. Save any negativity for a necessary emotional outburst. Positivity is always your best friend when trying to convince people to do what you want. Negative manipulation should only be used when necessary. Too much negativity will make you an ineffective manipulator.

To be fair I am not critizing this man.  I'm not perfect so I can't expect others to be.  I have just posted this thing just to show this what it seems that he probably doing.  I only listened  podcasts less than 2 months so I can't make conclusions yet.
