Question and answer
Q: What is the difference between persuasion and manipulation? How do arguments and language affect the way in which they differ?
A: Persuasion and manipulation are both methods of convincing people to do something for you or change their thinking to match yours. [ [ However, they follow very different styles - persuasion does so by presenting facts in a positive light and showing how they benefit the user, while manipulation does so by leaving information out, playing with emotions and generally unethically convincing
someone. Persuasion and manipulation are not binary states; it is possible to have one with shades of the other. ] ]
