    Do you like to use psychology on people?

    Do you ever find yourself diliberately trying to get under someone's skin? Have you ever knowingly approached someone differently because you understand psychology? Is it wrong to do this?

    As a society we do it all the time. Like when we talk to a baby we might "coo" or change how our voice sounds. When we are fighting with siblings, we know exactly what will get to them and we do it because we know it will get a rise out of them. It's not wrong to do it, but if you do it for the "wrong" reasons, then it could be. Depends on the situation.

    Reverse psychology is the act of motivating someone to do something by telling him to do the exact opposite of it. For example telling your friend “I bet you can’t arrive before 6” might motivate him to do the opposite just to prove you wrong.

    Reverse psychology is a dangerous weapon because if the person you are dealing with realized that you were trying to manipulate him he might not be able to trust you again that’s why reverse psychology should only be used on the person’s subconscious mind and not his conscious mind.

    Thus in order for reverse psychology to be used properly You must make that person think that you believe in what you are saying and that you are not just saying it to motivate him.
