Over the last few years, the psychological concept of emotional blackmail has been popularized. I myself heard the term many times but have never tried to delve deeper. Thanks to Arthur picking this topic for discussion, I finally used the opportunity to get a better handle on it.

In any relationship there are expectations involved and it’s not uncommon that the other side doesn’t measure up to our expectations. When that happens, we’d often take a crack at changing them, making them do what we want. Various tactics would be adopted to achieve that. During the process, sometimes we could unwittingly make the other side feel guilt, obligation, or even fear. Does that amount to emotional blackmail?

Kooper, this is a good question.

I think the point is if you only expect them to do something, and you don't use F. O. G. They just feel these three things themselves, then it is not emotional blackmail.

For example,
A husband says this to his wife:I hope you can lose some weight and have a better body shape. ( I think this is not emotional blackmail,even though the wife may feel pressure and obligation)

If the husband says :I hope you can lose some weight. If not, I may not love you as much as before. ( Then this is emotional blackmail)

What do you think ?
