People attempt to manipulate others by appearing helpless.
Ever see a kid, come crying to their parents, saying this and that happened and they want the parent to fix it. The parent explains to the child, but the child just starts crying even harder, trying to manipulate the parent into giving them what they want.
When a kid, for example, wants the parent to do something for them but they don't want to. They think the kid should learn. They're old enough now. But the kid wants the parent to do it. So it turns into a round robbin of manipulative attempts to see who can out-manipulate the other.
I just had someone request something of me that they've requested before. I explained how to do it, then they came back and requested it of me again. Same request, no acknowledgement of our prior conversation. Learned helplessness. "I want you to do it. I don't want to do it myself." What's involved here is an total disregard for what I said, as if I wasn't heard at all - totally ignored instead. Or it would appear as such, then turn around and repeat the request.The end goal is to make me feel sorry for them and do as they wish.
Manipulation. Get over it. It's not honest and it's not the spiritual path of honouring others.
