How to deal with a dominator?
Besides testing the practicality of speak softly and carry a big stick.
You can also speak loudly to make others believe that your stick aren't too small.
Of couse that isn't a long term solution.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Stick_ideology

If you expect to find youself at the short end of the stick indefinitely.
You should get to know the theory beyond "Asymmetrical warfare"

the story talk about some bad parents want to control their child for social welfare.thus,
they cheat and hit her ,or separate her with the society.and then the school get quit for her
when her father raped,and have the baby.

4. What are the places where there is high rate of people who tend to be easily dominated?

I can think of school, army and highly pressured work place as the circumstances for people to be easily dominated. Actually the atmosphere itself in that circumstance may make you automatically follow the disciplines for surviving

Group 1 Topic ParentsToshi
TOSHIBA and TOSHIMA are worrying about Toshi’s interpersonal rationship,and the sensitive parents pay a lot attention even just the general friend come to his home, and start the story…
In my case ,I would say I am not home boy when my parents worry ,if needed I will try to brain-washing them. :shock:

Group 2 Topic Friends
Director (Charie),
Boss (Michael) Friends(Mountain, Maggie)
Victim(Antonio)
The story talk about the insurance seller forced boss argument ,and then he try to sell to his friends unsuitable product. Finally ,his friends honest to refuse him. it is quite common example in our society and how to maintain the relationship in the right place where is our purpose in life.

Group 3 Topic Lovers
Director (Wen-han),
Two couples (Chantal & Yihao,Jackson &Iris)
Victim(Yihao,Iris)
All of them want be treated best for their lover. For instance, travel at Dubai and buy luxurious cloths. You can find out how long-distance when they aggress with you. Even the boundary clear ,but make the plan to follow their request is much better ,if the right person nearby you.
