According to Wikipedia, Reverse psychology is a technique in which the assertion of a belief or behavior that is opposed to the one wanted is used in the hope that the target of the persuasion would be motivated to carry out the desired behavior. This technique is based on the psychological phenomenon of reactance, in which a person picks the alternative that is being opposed because they have a negative emotional response to being persuaded. This could be particularly effective on someone who is naturally resistive, whereas straightforward demands work better on agreeable people. Most of the time, the person being controlled is oblivious of what is truly happening.
