TRICKS TO MAKE OTHERS DO THINGS



( DAILY FCUHOMESCHOOLING INFO FOR ALL )

WHAT IS REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY
Reverse psychology is defined as telling a person something that is the opposite of what you want them to do or actually believe. It is 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.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.

WHEN TO USE REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY?
Lets suppose that your child got bad grades, telling him something like “You will never get higher grades” might ruin his self confidence, make him believe that its really impossible and create a new false belief in his mind that affects his personality.



After all if you kept telling someone that he is bad or dishonest you might program him to believe that these traits are parts of his personality and that he can’t do any better.(see Subconscious mind programming)

Reverse psychology must only be used when the person knows the actions he should take in order reach the outcome you want. So in the previous example you should have motivated your child to study instead of motivating him to get high grades simply because he can study if he wanted but getting high grades is subject to many other factors other than doing his best.

Telling him something like “I bet you can never finish your homework tonight” is much

Not every person will respond to reverse psychology, for example, those who lack self confidence might actually take your defeating statements and make from them new limiting beliefs that makes them become even worse.

Once you managed to challenge someone’s dormant ego without letting him notice that you are doing it on intention you will be able to make that person do whatever you want.

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.

A great way to incorporate reverse psychology as a parent is at the dinner table. If your child doesn't want to finish their dinner saying something such as "Bet you can't eat six more bites of your meal (or the rest of your veggies)" has been known to work time and time again.
