"If you don't control your mind, somenone else will" (John Allston)

 Hi Everyone!

Today I would like to concentrate on psychology. To be precise, I bring up the subject of manipulation and, obviously, brainwashing (also known as mind control). 


First of all, do you know what does manipulate mean? According to Cambridge Dictionaries Online, it stands for "control someone or something in a clever way so that they do what you want them to do" (http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english-polish/manipulate?q=manipulation). 
To my mind, this is a sophisticated concept which evokes a lot of negative and unpleasant associations. Manipulators are everywhere these days. There are not only people who  take up a senior positions but also men in the street. And what is really important in this stuff is that they have no scruples: other people have to dance to their tune. Nowadays, there are numerous trainings which allow us to learn how influence other people. In my point of view, it is worth devoting not only time but also effort to our family or leisure activities. 
What about brainwashing? This is a very widespread phenomenon: we have to deal with it in every area of life. What is this for? If we want to influence on someone's views or feelings we use one of brainwashing techniques. There are a large amount of possibilities, for example indignity, isolation or threats. One thing is certain: it is necessary to defend yourself from it.
