" The Oxford English Dictionary treats manipulation as "the act or to influence people with the skill of management, particularly dismissive connotations, as a hidden control and processing. " Published in 1969 in New York, "Modern Dictionary of Sociology" defines manipulation as "the kind of power, which has its effect on the behavior of others, without revealing the nature of the behavior that he expects of them. " The person interacting with others, interact with the consciousness of other people, one way or another influencing their behavior, but the conscious manipulation begins with the moment when the manipulator makes for a target of manipulation. In short, when a person wants to achieve a specific result for yourself when communicating with others and without the knowledge of another, prompting the person on the certain steps, we call such action manipulation.
