Discovery: Manipulation is a long term business killer

The research began by learning from the psychopathic manipulation of children. Just born human beings cannot develop psychopathic behaviors because they have no ethical intelligence and use their instincts to survive. Their actions are just instinctive and they do not search for any secondary benefit.

Roles of Psychopathic ManipulationChildren begin their psychopathic manipulation when they already have integrated some ethical rules and want to profit from the environment satisfying needs that are beyond their basic ones.

The objective of this research, led by Peter Belohlavek, which included experiences with psychopathic manipulators and psychopaths since 1976 until 2012, was to discover the ontological structure of psychopathic manipulation and detect the signs and symptoms that allow for an early diagnosis of the existence of a manipulator.

Manipulation has three components, the manipulator, the manipulated and the benefit (object) that the manipulator is trying to appropriate.

The active role of psychopathic manipulation is the action of the manipulator who has to apprehend the purpose of the manipulated in order to change her/his perception to appropriate the benefit.

The Psychopathic Manipulation

Psychopathic manipulation is based on the greed and envy the candidate to be manipulated feels and the manipulator exploits. Therefore manipulation only works when a person cannot elaborate her/his greed and envy.

Psychopathic Manipulation

That is why mature people cannot be manipulated. Manipulation needs to take advantage of the unsolved weaknesses a person has.

A psychopathic manipulation is a process in which one of the participants develops the necessary actions to create a dominant relationship with the manipulated in order to take advantage of the dependence s/he builds.

This process includes an emotional manipulation that transforms the dependence into a rational manipulation process that generates the perception that the manipulated will receive the benefits her/his greed is aiming at.

The Unicist Ontogenetic Algorithm

The first step a manipulator does in a more or less conscious way is establishing the basics to see if a manipulation is possible. Psychopaths have the “gift” of doing this process without feeling guilty for their actions. Non-psychopaths are able to limit their abuse based on the social responsibility they might have.

Greed allows manipulating people. That is why the first action of a manipulator is to build a rational approach that is believable based on the greed s/he has found in the psyche of the manipulated.

An individual who has an assumed role in life is not subject to manipulations. The first action manipulators do is to destroy the role of the individual. To do so they separate the person from her/his structural positioning.

To destroy the role of the manipulated, manipulators use subjectivism trying to convince the manipulated one that s/he is superior to the role s/he socially has. This is what adulation is about. They use a cynic approach to sustain the rationalization of the greed of the candidate. This cynicism needs to install disbelief in all those aspects that hinder the execution of greedy actions by the manipulated.

A manipulation can begin when the hope to obtain a “special prize” has been installed in the mind of the greedy. Hope suffices to start.

The Creation of Dependence

The creation of dependence is one of the steps of any brainwashing process. Manipulation is a brainwashing process based on the greed of the manipulated.

Dependence is created by rotating the roles of savior, pursuer and victim which generates a state of confusion in the mind of the manipulated. This confusion can be used by the manipulator to assume the role of savior to apparently materialize the hope the manipulated has.

This process begins with finding some aspect in which the manipulator can act as a savior, giving something that makes her/him reliable. Usually, manipulators generate an inexistent problem and then take the role of saviors for the problem they have created.

Then a self-victimization process begins. The self-victimization of the manipulator implies pursuing the manipulated with the prices s/he has to pay to do what s/he is doing for the manipulated.

The goal of this prosecution is to generate the necessary empathy with the manipulated in order to establish a complicity in the field where the manipulator wants to obtain her/his profit. This complicity needs to be perceived by the manipulated as a favor the manipulator is doing.

The Emotional Manipulation

Emotional manipulation is based on the existence of subjective dependence and is materialized by the envy the manipulated feels because of what s/he thinks the manipulator has. The individual can be manipulated if s/he thinks that the manipulator has something s/he is unable to achieve.

To ensure the dependence that needs to be achieved a subtle disqualification of the authoritative roles has to be done. The authoritative roles the manipulated has in her/his mind hinders the acceptance of the dependence from the manipulator.

The projection of suspicion, doubt, skepticism and fallacious myths suffices to degrade authoritative roles if it is done in a polite way by the manipulator that has been positioned as a savior.

After this degradation has succeeded, subjective dependence become mature and only depends on managing the emotional hope and illusions of the manipulated. The process needs to be recycled if a subjective dependence has not been achieved.

The Operational Manipulation Process

Psychopathic ManipulationThere are four stages of any manipulation process that follow the ontogenesis of an individual’s evolution: childhood, adolescence, youth and maturity.

These stages are:

  1. Personal Adulation
  2. Stimulation of Greed
  3. Idealization of the Future
  4. Sacrifice for the Good

Personal Adulation

Personal adulation works when the manipulated feels flattered in fields that increase her/his omnipotence because it provides the necessary fallacies to avoid needing to deal with the weaknesses the individual has.

Active seduction, whatever its kind, works as a personal adulation process. It has to be considered that adulation needs to be focused on the childish aspects any person has.

Adulation works when it fits the daydreams an individual has and allows him/her to think that s/he can make them come true.

Stimulation of Greed

The stimulation of greed is focused on the adolescent aspect any person has to find a very special and unique opportunity that shows that s/he overcomes the adults that surround her/him.

It includes the preexistence of an adulation process. The stimulation of greed needs to make the manipulated ones feel that they are accessing an opportunity others can not see and that they can achieve it because they are smarter and can take advantage of the opportunity the manipulator is opening.

Idealization of the Future

The idealization of the future is focused on the use of the energy young people have.

The youth of a person can be measured on the plans the individual has for the future. It includes the preexistence of the stimulation of her/his greed.

The future has to be ideal and based on the self-perception the manipulated has of her/his gifts. It needs to deal with the ideal the individual imagines for her/his life.

Sacrifice for the Good

It is the sacrifice the manipulator is doing for both. The sacrifice for the good is focused on the acceptance that there is no benefit without a price that has to be paid. It includes the preexistence of the idealization of the future.

The sacrifice includes prices both parts will have to pay to achieve the dreams that are being promised.

In order to accept this sacrifice for the good, the manipulated needs to have bought the idea of complicity with the manipulator and consider that they are both on the same boat.

Conclusions

Manipulators are greedy people who use their anti-intelligence to take advantage of the greed of others.

A metaphor can provide the guiding idea of the conclusions:

A swindler was in a luxurious hotel and approached an apparently rich person in the casino and proposed him to buy a lottery ticket that had won the first prize in Detroit.

He argued that he had to avoid his identification because of tax reasons. He was an extremely nice and polite guy who was able to seduce people based on his charm.

Finally, the swindler convinced him to buy it for 20% of the value of the “prize”.

Of course, as you can imagine, it was a fraud, and the seller disappeared from the Hotel. But one year later, when he was talking with someone in the Casino of another Hotel, his previous victim, who happened to be there, identified him and gave notice to the police.

He didn’t confess his action but asked the officer: Hypothetically, if this were true, who is the swindler, the one who sells a prize or the one who pretends to obtain a benefit paying 20% of its true value?

The manipulator is still free on the streets.

It has to be considered that greed might affect the materialistic, emotional or spiritual aspects of human behavior.

The action of manipulators is based on their inferiority/superiority complex and driven by the Oedipus complex. That is why they can abuse and destroy without being conscious of their actions.

Manipulators use the manipulated as an object to appropriate the benefit they are searching for, without caring about him/her as a person. That is why they change the victim as soon as they see they cannot manipulate him/her anymore.

Manipulators’ behavior is compulsive without any conscious strategy of their actions. Every manipulator has a recipe to use to manipulate others. This recipe is based on the successful experience s/he had and what s/he learns from their psychopathic role models. Manipulators are specialized in some field because their recipes only work in specific environments.

Paradoxically, manipulators are socially accepted in involving or stagnant environments (countries, institutions or groups), where people are expecting a messiah, winning the lottery or any supernatural solution, as the expected savior.

Psychopathic manipulators are marginalized in evolving environments because of their destructive influence on the structure of values.

The Power of a Country’s Archetype is defined by its Work

Work implies the capacity of displacing facts in nature in order to generate a usable added value for a society.

P=W/t

Therefore it is implicit that the fundamentals of work are consistent with the different levels of archetypes. We will describe in the following the fundamentals of work in the different archetypes:

Social Value of Influential Work

The purpose of work in elites of influential archetypes is to generate added value in their societies. To do so their active function is driven by the transforming of nature and the energy conservation function is the need to overcome resource scarcity.

If we see it at an operational level we can define that:

The maximal strategy of the elites is to transform nature driven by the energy focused on knowledge and the personal need that sustains their actions is the self-affirmation of their deeds.

The minimum strategy to overcome resource scarcity is driven by the energy of their capacity to produce and the personal need that sustains their actions is the capacity to manage the time to make things happen.

Businesses: The paradox of high IQ individuals

The intelligence quotient (IQ) measures the capacity of individuals to deal with dualistic logic that allows them to recognize patterns of the external environment. The higher the IQ of an individual, the more variables of the external reality s/he is able to manage and the more complications s/he can apprehend.

This characteristic makes high IQ individuals notorious systemic problem solvers. But, paradoxically, this is a handicap to deal with complex problems, those problems that have open boundaries in which their components do not have dualistic relationships but are the integration of the conjunctions of elements with multiple biunivocal relationships.

It has to be considered that the brain is an extremely energy consuming organ of the human body. Therefore the brain always uses the less energy consuming solution to adapt to reality. The use of the IQ of an individual is, without doubt, the less energy consuming solution which is functional if it is a systemic problem but dysfunctional if the problem is complex.

High IQ individuals spontaneously generate palliatives, like statistics, to deal with complexity. This allows them to avoid facing the nature of problems when they are complex. In extreme cases, they sustain their solutions based on a superiority complex they build in order to avoid facing the real world and build a parallel reality where their IQ is functional.

Problems are systemic or complex in themselves. It is not a matter of perception or opinion. Social and business realities are a complex problem in themselves which requires having the necessary mental model to apprehend them. This mental model is defined by the double dialectical logic. When dealing with complexity, the intelligence quotient of an individual is just a threshold to apprehend the elements of reality, which needs to have been overcome.

We invite you to access the unicist double dialectical logic:

Learning from Procter & Gamble using the Unicist Standard

The notorious capacity of Procter & Gamble is given by the way it manages the social insertion of innovations.

We recommend watching the following two short presentations of Procter & Gamble at:

Innovation is the basis for economic growth.  Essentially, countries, cultures, institutions, and individuals grow only in the fields where they are open to innovations.

The purpose of innovation is to overcome scarcity. That is why only people or cultures that have the will, find the way to overcome scarcity.  This is the cultural context that fosters innovation.

The driver of innovation is human creation. The word creation is used in the sense of recreation. Humans create based on the existing energy.

The maximal strategy of innovations drives towards the solution of a scarcity. Therefore innovative organizations have the perception that they add value to the environment. But this is only true if the minimum strategy is also fulfilled.

The minimum strategy implies inserting the innovations into the social capital of the environment. Social capital is defined by the strength of the bonds that integrate the members of a community.

Commercial innovations need to be only one step ahead of the habits of the environment. If they are more than one step ahead they fail, unless there is an extreme need and they are, implicitly, a “back to basics”.

In this field Procter & Gamble is a notorious benchmark.

Unicist Future Research: the Nature of Democracy

The video on “The Nature of Democracy: The role of democracy in political, religious, military and business institutions” is now available.

The discovery of the unicist ontology of Democracy in human behavior allowed the emulation of nature and the description of the “objects” that define Democracy. Nature is organized by objects. Understanding the behavior of nature, i.e. wolves packs, democracy can be seen in action.

This is a synthesis on the live clinic led by Peter Belohlavek as part of the Goodwill Network activities for the community.
You will be surprised by one of the most significant discoveries: the unicist ontology of democracy. You will live the nature of democracy and its applications in the political and institutional fields.

You will see how democracy, in the wide sense, is in the nature of human evolution. But you will also see the limits of democracy.

The emulation of nature in a Democratic system requires the existence of integrated objects that define the functionality of Democracy.

This video is a mind-opener in the field of macro-democracy and a breakthrough in the field of applied democracy in one’s action field.

Peter Belohlavek says that Democracy was, is and will be the most efficient way to live, work and evolve.

Understanding that democracy implies “Cooperation in Diversity” is the challenge.

Trends: Unicist Lifestyle Segmentation and Evolution

Unicist LifestylesLifestyle segmentation underlies human behavior. Lifestyles establish the parameters of normality and the “ethical mask” of a society. Describing the lifestyles of a country permits establishing the limits within which segmentations can work. Only in the case of basic human needs lifestyles are not a limit but only a gravitational force.

The unicist lifestyle segmentation is analogous to the VALS segmentation of SRI. But, while VALS uses psychology to segment people according to their distinct personality traits, Unicist Lifestyle Segmentation uses anthropological invariables and country archetypes to segment people.

Unicist Lifestyles

Lifestyles are the archetypical behavior patterns of a society and its members. These archetypes serve a group as automatisms to carry out the everyday activities that are functional to that society’s purpose.

Hence, lifestyles are the result of the integration of a society’s collective unconscious with its archetype, which define different ways of facing reality.

Archetypes resolve the weaknesses of a social group by turning uncertainties into assertive answers which guarantee the success of individual and social purposes.

An individual’s lifestyle makes him acceptable and functional to the society’s needs. It also allows him to find groups of identification across different cultures or communities.

The Unicist Standard needs to be a Rolls-Royce

Benchmarking Rolls-Royce is necessary for all those products or activities that are considered prestigious by the community and that need to sustain their seeking for perfection to achieve their credibility in the market.

In the following lines you can find the answers to the questions posed in this previous post:
http://www.unicist.net/partners-news/benchmarking-is-the-unicist-standard-a-rolls-royce/

A Rolls-Royce is an extremely prestigious car because it has extreme functionality, quality, added value and reliability.

The integration of these four extreme characteristics makes its positioning as a prestigious car possible.

The purpose of a “Rolls-Royce” is to satisfy the feeling of having achieved perfection. Perfection is considered as something that satisfies 100% the expectancy of the buyer. This means that a “Rolls-Royce” satisfies the needs of the buyer considered as an individual, as part of a group and within her/his social environment.

Every activity or product that requires perfection, in the above described sense, needs to position as a “Rolls-Royce”.  This can be frequently seen in medicine, in politics, in strategy, and in all those fields where the value added is extreme and extreme reliability is expected.

The extreme functionality mentioned above has two aspects. It has to be extremely functional as a device but also extremely functional in its operation. This implies that no one can expect a superior functionality in the market.

The need for extreme quality implies extreme quality assurance and extreme control. Thus reliability and extreme added value are sustained.

Therefore the process of Rolls-Royce building includes an extremely strict concept, its update in the field of scientific possibilities, the management of all the techniques necessary to achieve perfection and last, but not least, the necessary art to make the perfection perceivable by the community.

Rolls-Royce building and positioning is not a question of choice. It is a question of beliefs. But it needs to be said that this does not guarantee success in business.

General Electric, a world leader in innovation

As Nikola Tesla laid the groundings for “Innovative Research Laboratories”, Thomas A. Edison laid the groundings for “Product Development Laboratories.”

The unicist standard for business strategy allows defining the fundamentals of General Electric’s business in order to benchmark its experiences.

General Electric was born together with the “Product Development Laboratories” of Thomas A. Edison. Thus General Electric’s business concept is driven by research in all the fields where it considers there is a possibility to generate added value to the market.

In the development of innovations, the minimum strategy drives toward the building of social capital. This is the central fundamental of General Electric and it is sustained by the diversified “Product Development Laboratories” they have around the world.

General Electric is a leading firm in the different fields it works because, besides being extremely innovative, it is Market Value Adding focused.

Being focused on market value adding allows developing useful researches and strengthening the market bonds by improving the social capital in the environment.

The structural approach to innovations developed by General Electric is an “extreme” benchmark for innovative businesses.
