Marian’s take on Psychological Manipulation

Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera graced the studio of the lifestyle show Mars with Camille Prats and Suzy Abrera. Marian was joined by the comedienne Boobay and they talked about the different signs of “psychological manipulation”.

One of the most commonly used strategies to convince or manipulate a person is information overload, or providing complex explanations to convince the person to talk.

According to Marian, she is just doing a simple job to avoid psychological manipulation.

“Very frank ako. Kapag may hindi ako naiintidihan, sasabihin ko agad. ‘Explain mo ulit’ or ‘Tama na. Okay na ako,’”

[ I’m very frank. When I do not get it, I say right away. ‘Explain again’ or ‘That’s okay. I’m fine,] she explained.

The actress added, “Direct to the point ako. Kapag hindi ko naiintindihan, sasabihin kong hindi ko naiintindihan,”

[“I’m direct to the point. When I do not understand, I’ll say I do not understand, “explains the actress.

Among the “signs of psychological manipulation” the program discussed “They make you feel insecure,” “They play dumb sometimes,” and “They place undue pressure on you.”

As you all know already Marian is a BS Psychology graduate at De La Salle University.
