Dark Psychology: The Power of Psychopathy, Control, and Manipulation
This book contains the following 3 titles:
Book 1: People who are manipulative, often make use of secret tactics to get other people to do what they want. They try to exercise control over their victims by using hidden aggression methods. This is different from regular aggression, because it is typically sneaky and subtle.
In the third chapter of this book, self-help scams are addressed. The self-help industry is a multi-billion-dollar industry that feeds on the gullible wishful thinking of the ones who go to seminars, buy books, overpriced courses, etc.
Among other things, we’ll also discuss topics like the power of influence, especially in the world of the internet; and we will go into what peer pressure does to youngsters and adults.
Book 2: In this book, you will learn more about the culture we live in today. Are we being brainwashed by the media? How is social media affecting us?
And with those two questions in mind, does this mean there are more narcissists today than ever before?
Not only are we going to dive into these specific topics, but we will also talk about real cults. Cults have existed for a long time. Some even see the relationship between cults and actual religions. But why are cults so dark and scary?
Book 3: Psychopaths and sociopaths are everywhere in our society. You may not realize it, but they are out there. Chances are that you know someone who is a sociopath and you don’t even know it.
How do they compare?
And are they all dangerous?
Aside from answering these questions, we will also look into other topics that are related to manipulation. For example, we’ll go deeper into how to see if someone is manipulating you, or which sales tactics people use to make you buy something.
