    Not bad, considering I’m not really focusing on the detailed distinctions 🙂

    I like quizzes and polls. Great idea! 🙂

    Wahoo 84/100 I’m pretty happy with that!

    Reading the one about threats of suicide takes me back. My sister whom I suspect to be UMR alwsys used to date What I now know to be MMR or LMR sometimes even lessers. I recall when she had ended it with one of them (I suspect MMR type B) and he was deveststed. He would come round and talk to me whilst she was out, standing on the doorstep smoking (he only started when the relationship ended). One time I asked him why he had started now, his answer was that he wanted to kill himself slowly because of my sister so that his death would be as painful as it could be?? Hmmm

    I could never understand why she liked these types, I now realise she loves the fuel which flows from them when she uses her manipulations on them, also garnering attention from others about how poorly they’ve treated her, or how great they are depending on which way the wind blows

      I had to laugh at him taking up smoking as a way of killing himself slowly 😛

      While it’s true in one respect (speaking as an ex-smoker), it’s also laughable that he thought that was a way of punishing her long into the future … how grandiose is their thinking? Him believing she would still care decades down the road. I’m sure he would imagine her being grief stricken and throwing herself over his grave begging his forgiveness. They are seriously ridiculous and deluded, sometimes. Hmmm is right.

    Loved the Quiz’s. Great fun.

  6. k mac says:

    Oooo I failed! I should have brushed up on my A and B subtypes before I took this. These are new concepts to me. Also, I feel like a lot of these are trick questions. I mean, don’t all of them do most of these?

    1. Alexissmith2016 says:

      K Mac my understanding is that some are exclusive, others it’s the go to manipulation, others would do most if other manipulations failed so it’s about which one is most likely to use this as a first line of manipulation.

      E.g you’d be really unlikely to find an MMR type A being violent in front of others.
