So what can you do when you notice you are the object of another woman's manipulation?
You can escape female manipulation tricks without giving in by following these 6 pieces of advice (Counterattacks to the above behaviors).
1. Buttering You Up
All women would like to believe another woman's flattery - but watch for patterns. Are you getting compliments when something is at stake? Or do you get no compliments fro weeks and then suddenly you are the best thing since sliced bread? Get wise to her game, and turn the tables. Agree with her compliments. Resist acting overly appreciative. Once she thinks its going to your head she'll stop the excessive praise.
Negativity is contagious
If you disagree then I have some property to sell you in the middle of the Arctic Circle! Seriously, what people think of themselves, their circumstances, or you can affect what you think about yourself, your circumstances, or your thoughts of others. It's a law of human nature.
If you surround yourself with sweet you smell sweet. If you surround yourself with sour you smell sour. But here's the difference between negative and positive statements; the negative statements cause the greatest shifts in our thinking and behavior. Not only from good to bad, but bad to worse. Another law of human nature. This has all the trappings of group think.
You see, the opinions of others exert strong influence on your attitudes particularly when their opinions are negative. This impacts your perceptions. When your perceptions are faulty or negative you lose out on life. On the future you are striving to move toward.

Or, you leave your desk, take a long walk and fantasize about what it would be like to pack up, leave and begin a simpler life.

Want fancy champagne and a five star hotel but the finances aren't there?
Tumbling stocks and a world economic crisis - not exactly the words a person wants to hear. These words don't exactly drum up feelings of living large - on the contrary they often spark the panicked 'lack' feelings deep inside many of us.
