If you have an email ending in @hotmail.com, @live.com or @outlook.com (or any other Microsoft-related domain), please consider changing it to another email provider; Microsoft decided to instantly block the server's IP, so emails can't be sent to these addresses.
If you use an @yahoo.com email or any related Yahoo services, they have blocked us also due to "user complaints"
Where you define, predict or diagnose behaviors of other people you meet or hear about based on what "seems to make sense", regardless of any actual research put ahead. They are usually worded in the same way as most "Well Logically..." statements, where the word logically is inserted into a theory to make it sound accurate.
I've been called out for this shit before, and I tend to see it a few times on here (IJBM), and in shit-heavy amounts in OTC (when it comes to diagnosing insane people, or defining the behaviors of people with post traumatic stress disorder) and the insecurities threads.
The reason it comes to mind is because a very creepy fuck from my past began applying this to me in meatspace, stating that "ignoring me and changing your information to hide from me is what I was planning on seeing you do anyway, since everything you do in reaction to me is exactly what I want you to do. I have control over your fear, and with that, I have complete control over you" and "I tried pity stories on you, etc, because such was the manner of my
manipulation on *you* at the time, because I seeked affection more than
your well-being. Your aim was to please me before you even know what was happening."
Which leads me to another thing that I can't quite google out.
What do you call it when people assume they are manipulating you by predicting common actions made by a person and then taking credit for it to make themselves feel like they have a major influence over actions you commit?
