    I've been pretty good at but I've also been pretty bad at preventing it from happening to me.

    while in the air force, i was taking a rat lab 101 class and i read how to win friends and influence people. as a test, i used the things in the book. the response was remarkable. an intellectual exercise that i dropped as i couldn't deal with all the phony BS i had to play. i had people who, in the beginning, did not like me, end up giving me ataboys.
    remarkably effective and kind of scary.

    I'm good at it. But I rarely use my powers because I don't like manipulating people. Except in a situation where it's harmless or inconsequential, like getting the guy at home depot to cut a piece of wood to size for me despite their policy of "fit cuts only". Or getting a guy to have sex with me.
