The cat thing might have been a bad example. Ofc you don't address my explanation after words.I mean if you threaten anyone's animal or someone they love, regardless of type they're likely going to do what you say for as long as it takes to prevent harm to the animal/person, and then they'll take action against you instead and you've lost basically all future bargaining power/ability to manipulate.
Petty coercion isn't a good example of which type is easily manipulated. Nor do I think this kind of coercion is even classified as 'manipulation' - it's just transparently violent and abusive.
Well, I see it like this, in vague terms : Insecure and low self esteem people feel more need to please others because they don’t feel socially valued, they would go to great lengths including acting against their own interests to be redeemed of their perceived faults, or something like that. If you feel worthless, you have less agency or something.I don't get why people talk about manipulators using "insecurities". People always said that manipulators especially take advantage of insecure, low self-esteem people as they are easier to manipulate. I don't see the connection between insecurity and manipulation. Can someone give a hypo to illustrate the connection?
Every single one, depending on the form your manipulation takes.which personality type that is easily manipulated (emotionally)? and why ?
I agree. Rigidity makes you predictable, and manipulation is all about anticipating your target's next move.I don't think feelers are more prone to being manipulated, while thinkers are safer. I think it's the other way around. A lot of manipulation is emotional manipulation. Thinkers, who are not as capable of understanding and trusting emotions, are more prone to being emotionally manipulated as opposed to feelers.
True that every type has different buttons to press. Which makes MBTI a useful tool to have, or a weapon if you want to use it that way.Every single one, depending on the form your manipulation takes.
It's a matter of tone, approach, intent, and leverage.
NToids are easy to manipulate when you know what they want to hear. SFoids are easy to manipulate when you know what they need/want. NFoids are easy to manipulate if you know their passions. SToids are easy to manipulate if you know how to push their buttons.
I agree with you both - but I don't think it's down to rigidity or logic. NT's, and particularly INT's, are renowned as being the least emotional of types. Every relationship I've had has described me as the least emotional person they've known. "Like a robot sometimes," said my last girlfriend. "I'm not sure whether you're an android or a Vulcan," said the relationship before that. But we are not androids, we are human. We, or I at least, simply don't show much feeling to the outside world. Mostly, the world doesn't make me feel much of anything. Especially not next to these feelers who seem to have emotional reactions to every colour, picture, animal or anything they see.I agree. Rigidity makes you predictable, and manipulation is all about anticipating your target's next move.
