The Business of Manipulation | Psychology Today

Interesting discussion of manipulation, marketing, and product development, and the above matrix to help situate oneself.

Interesting exercise to go through various consumer products and services and place them, recognizing a certain subjectivity. For example, soft drink manufacturers would argue, as did (do?) tobacco companies that they are facilitators; others would argue that they are more akin to dealers, given the impact on short and long-term health (even if the makers consume soft drinks themselves).
