Reverse Psychology -"We want to do what we want to do"

Reverse psychology refers to getting another person to do or say something by telling them the opposite of what is desired. It's a form of manipulation that has questionable success. Psychological reluctance occurs in response to threats to perceived behavioral freedoms. A person has a negative emotional reaction to being persuaded, and thus chooses the option which is being advocated against. Reverse psychology implies a clever manipulation so, this isn't the healthiest way to communicate. Use it wisely. However for people who are resistant to change this is where it comes especially handy.
