S03E19: How to stop being manipulated by others

In this session, we explore how you can stop being manipulated by others and think for yourself.

Why we believe people
The illusion of certainty
The illusion of clarity
The illusion of the extremes (polar)
The Dunning Kruger effect
Uncertainty
The rule of the asshole (opinions are like)

How people manipulate us

Gaslighting (making you believe you’re overreacting)
Victim taking (making themselves out to be a victim) and Guilt tripping
Past blaming (bringing up guilt inducements from the past)
Labeling (labeling you in a convenient way)
The illusion of balance (I like… but)
Finding your vulnerabilities and insecurities
Narrative weaving (telling the story to serve their agenda)
Bad mouthing (speaking badly of others)

How to deal with this

Checking the source (how credible are they)
Checking the agenda (and how their narrative serves it)
Checking the tactics (how are they manipulating you)
Checking others perspectives
Reclaiming power
Setting boundaries
Holding your own council
Making up your own mind
