Would you want to be able to control people's emotions?

Asked by Vincent_Lloyd (3007points) August 20th, 2010

Would you want to be able to control others people’s emotions? Basically manipulate him or her? I mean I would, but wouldn’t like to do it. Since I don’t want to have to make someone love me in a way they truly don’t. So it would be pointless. On the other hand I can use friends and random people do what I please make them become angry etc…But I’m not that type of person. So I wouldn’t. So….Would you guys want to control other’s emotions?

No. Life would not be exciting if you knew what to expect. One of my motto is be ready for the unexpected.

Not to manipulate, but to get some people my mother, for one to just relax and quit worrying about everything. It’s not right to take contriol over a person’s emotions for sooo many reasons. One, in particular, that people have so many different ways of coping with things. It’d frak them up. I don’t even like having control over the tv remote.

Never. My emotions are everything. What I feel is what I know. Controlling the emotions of another person is akin to violating their sense of being.

I have struggled with my own, never mind trying to control others. I wouldn’t want to anyway, it would stop people being individuals and have them become clones.

Well, I’m a damn good amateur therapist, so I can control people’s emotions already to an extent.

To directly answer your question, though: no. And not just no, but hell no.

No, it wouldn’t be fair to the people I’m doing it to. Plus, why would I feel special knowing that someone likes or love me because I controlled them to feel it? It wouldn’t be fun because I’d know that my friendship or relationship with them would be fake. I like knowing that people like or love me because it’s their choice, not because I made them feel that way. So no thanks, I’ll pass! :)

Nah, I’d get too emotional trying to do it. I have enough on my hands controlling my own.

Of course, I would single-handedly convert conservative christians to critical thinkers and extremely emotional women to slightly emotional woman lol.

Only sad, angry, or disturbed people. That way I could give them some relief.

I already do. Everywhere I go, people always smile and say, “Wow, what a moron.” :)
