3 Mind Games Every Single Toxic Person Plays With You

They have personality and mental disorders and they need professional help. The last thing you need is to ruin yourself by trying to figure out him/her and giving your all in order to help them.

Now that we have that clear, here are the three mind games toxic people play with you.

Game #1: Gain, Preserve or Acquire Control

Toxic people are all about control—if they don’t have control over other people, they have nothing.

If they can elicit a particular response from you or move you to do what they want, this gives them the feeling of power that they are looking for. This makes them feel like they are in control over the situation and it also gives them the feeling of power over you.

What’s the story behind this? Toxic people need to have control everywhere, but if they can’t get it wherever they want it, they’ll double the dose on you. So if they can’t have control at work, they’ll search for it elsewhere—ergo they’ll make up for it with you.

Pay attention if you’re purposely giving the control to satisfy the person playing the mind game or are you being manipulated?
