Attraction – 

People interact with each other on a daily basis, and most times this is because one person needs something from the other. Dating, business, friendship, and politics are all interactions that involve this type of exchange. Getting others to do what you want them to do is simple, when you know how to do it.

In the business world, for example, Ted may have a product or service to sell while Jon is looking  just such a product. To sell the product or service to Jon, Ted needs to convince Jon that he will be satisfied and that the product or service Ted renders will meet Jon’s needs.

In other words, the way to get anybody to do what you want (buy, sell, vote, visit, etc.) is to make them want to do it. Trying to get what you want through intimidation or force is asking for trouble. It is hurtful, stressful, and ruins trust. Yes, it’s possible but not advisable to use forceful methods.

How do you make someone else feel important? Tell them. Show them. Give appreciation freely, honestly, and without reservation. Saying how appreciative you are for a favor received or a job well done will make the other person feel important and respected.

Why Manipulation?

Certainly, people have been manipulating other people since the dawn of time. What is it about the process of manipulating others that is so appealing?

  1. Manipulation is all about enjoying the power to get people to do what you want. Even three-year-Image result for Businessolds understand this: they have temper tantrums to get what they want.
  2. Manipulation avoids the messy uncertainty of not knowing what will happen next. Manipulators love the certainty of knowing where they want the interaction to go.
  3. Manipulation exists within the simple framework of heroes and villains. Everyone wants to be a hero. The manipulator often sets up the situation where the “hero” plays right into their plan under the presumption of “rescuing” them. In their anxiousness to become the hero, they miss that they are actually enabling the manipulator.

Guilt is a way to manipulate. Lying by omission is a way to manipulate. Manipulation is about getting someone to submit without the messiness of conflict. This is precisely what you don’t want to do when you are trying to persuade someone to give you what you want.

Instead Of Manipulation 

Rather, to attract what you want, you must show the other person that if he does what you want him to do it will, in turn, make him feel important. While it may be difficult to articulate how being appreciated will make someone feel, most people are well aware that authentic appreciation and gratitude is real and priceless and indeed does make them feel valued and important.

You make people feel important by making them a priority – spending quality time with them, actively listening to them, sincerely complementing them, and taking a real interest in what’s important to them at the moment. Something as simple as a smile can also be sufficient.
