How to frustrate a manipulator


Don’t take the bait

Act ignorant and cheerful

No emotional reaction

Distraction, ignore

Don’t take any notice and carry on regardless

Don’t give in

Stuck record – repeat repeat repeat  gray rock method


Improve your mental resilience so that you can control the urge to respond – this is what they want.
