Psychological manipulation.

Funnily enough, the above image of Matt Lucas' "Look into my eyes - not around my eyes" character from "Little Britain" was found on 'Look into my eyes': Supermarket robber who hypnotises checkout girls to get the cash is hunted by Italian police.

I've been reading Psychological manipulation on Wikipedia. Fascinating!

Knowledge is power. Don't be manipulated! Watch this video again...

Heh. Little Britain. Lol.


I am a bit more sceptical of eluding manipulation. I think some basic degree of manipulation is just beyond our control by virtue of us being social animals. Although this doesn't mean that critical thinking should be abandoned outright.

Anarchist aliens would certainly not approve.

I have vulnerabilities that can be exploited. I need to work on these, or at least be more vigilant about people trying to exploit them.
