Does reverse psychology work on you?

Reverse psychology is a technique involving the advocacy of a belief or behavior that is opposite to the one desired, with the expectation that this approach will encourage the subject of the persuasion to do what actually is desired: the opposite of what is suggested.

I have an initial reaction to do the opposite of what I'm told but I'll quickly revert to just doing whatever I wanted.

Nope, but it did work on my daughter.
If she wanted some item of clothing that I didn't like I would say I really liked it and she would put it back and get something else.

I'm not sure. I don't think it's really necessary for me. It works remarkably well for my husband, though. But I have to be subtle about it!

I'm sure it does, but only if I don't know that someone is using it.

I don't think I've ever been the "I'll show you/them!" type. So perhaps not...it just makes me see things as utterly dismal and hopeless. Although I never give up all hope, so to a degree, perhaps, yes.

No, I don't think so. As someone who spent years perfecting techniques for controlling conversations, I'm pretty hyper-sensitive to being manipulated. It's maddening sometimes. shock

Is Bill trying to trick me into selecting "yes"?
