Manipulation is shamelessly having control over a situation or another person. Sounds pretty bad, right? 

I can’t recall a time where I consciously manipulated someone close to me to influence a significant outcome that was favorable to me, but that doesn’t mean I haven't been manipulative before.



I also can’t recall a time where I feel like I have been manipulated by someone close to me. Maybe I’m just oblivious to that type of thing. Or maybe the person doing the manipulation was just so good at it that I never even noticed. 

That's the tricky, insidious charm of manipulation. If it's being done correctly, no one ever notices. 

Maybe you want your boyfriend to take you out tonight or maybe you want to convince your boss to give you that promotion you've been coveting. So, you start dropping hints, making loaded comments... basically, the goal is to be like Leonard DiCaprio in Inception. You're trying to plan an idea in someone's head while convincing him that it was their idea in the first place.


It sounds cool and sexy... until you realize that other people are trying to do it to you ALL THE TIME. (Scary, eh?)

Are some people better at being manipulative than others? Oh hells yeah. While there are some people who can't drop a hint without it landing like a lead balloon, there are others who push, prod, and puppet-master so effortlessly that you barely realize that you're doing something you didn't really want to do in the first place.


You can actually tell who's more predisposed to being a great manipulator by looking at someone's astrological chart. Each zodiac sign has certain personality traits and, yes, some are just better at getting what they want.

If you're interested in your own Inception skills (or if you're worried that your BFF might be steering your destiny without you realizing it), take a look at this list of the 4 zodiac signs who have no qualms about using all their manipulative might to get what they want out of life.

1Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini most manipulative zodiac sign

You wont believe this, but Gemini can be super manipulative. When it comes down to it, she wants what she wants and will do just about anything to get it. She’ll never put you in harms way or anything like that, and she definitely feels guilty about this whole thing.

But, like I said, nothing is going to stop Gemini from getting what she wants. If that means she has to be a little bit manipulative, she’ll do it.

2Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer most manipulative zodiac sign

Among Cancer’s few weaknesses is the fact that she can be manipulative. She’ll never want to admit it, but it’s true. But she’ll only go to these extremes when she thinks it’s for the best. Maybe she’s trying to protect herself, or a loved one, if she feels like manipulation is the only way to accomplish this, she’s not afraid to go there.

If it all works out in the end, and no one got hurt, does it matter? She doesn't see manipulations as a big deal.
