I recently had one session with a client who claimed that she had doubts about marrying her fiancé. When I asked why, she told me her fiancé loved to play games with her. As it turns out, her fiancé was a very smart man who knew his way around words and apparently, he knew his way around mind games.
The woman (let’s call her Debbie) told me of several instances where he turned the tide of an argument against her, to bring favour to his side, or to simply extort something out of her.
This begs the next question: why do people like to play mind games?
