Liars & Manipulators

prevaricators meaning: noun. a person who speaks falsely; liar. a person who speaks so as to avoid the precise truth; quibbler; equivocator (google).

I recently came across a liar and manipulator(s). A snake and their sheep.

So this is a resource info dump! This is me working through some things. This is still a part of my journey. Sadly, in Indian country we deal with liars & manipulators all the time. One would think our culture & traditions would assist in truth telling - but colonialism & assimilation has our people behaving like crabs in the bucket.

I've dealt with liars on a much bigger scale. So this bullshit is just another lesson learned.


We can now explore four types of liars:

  1. Deceitful

  2. Duplicitous

  3. Delusional

  4. Demoralized



Most manipulative individuals have four common characteristics:

  1. They know how to detect your weaknesses.

  2. Once found, they use your weaknesses against you.

  3. Through their shrewd machinations, they convince you to give up something of yourself in order to serve their self-centered interests.

  4. In work, social, and family situations, once a manipulator succeeds in taking advantage of you, he or she will likely repeat the violation until you put a stop to the exploitation.

Root causes for chronic manipulation are complex and deep-seated. But whatever drives an individual to be psychologically manipulative, it’s not easy when you’re on the receiving end of such aggression. How can one successfully manage these situations? Here are eight keys to handling manipulative people. Not all of the tips below may apply to your particular situation. Simply utilize what works and leave the rest.


This is the goal I need to be at...easier said then done...
