People think that persuasion and manipulation are the same thing. This is almost true.
The techniques used in persuasion are the very same techniques used in manipulation. The main difference is the intent of the end user.
Simply put, the master of influence uses his/her power to get the target to comply in order to create a result that is mutually beneficial. The master manipulator on the other hand, uses his/her power to create a result that is one sided. It is created with the intent of being beneficial to them only.
Yet still, many people still think that masters of persuasion and masters of manipulation are the same.
