Answer for Reverse PsychologyReverse psychology is when you do something and hope to get the opposite reaction. For example, if you wanted to get someone to take what you were offering, you would say they couldn't have it.

This is often used with little children. For example, you want your child to have some salad. You put it out to all members of the family at dinner time but tell your child "you can't have any of this tonight". Often then, the child will demand to have it!

See the link below for a description with examples.

yes and yes. If you realize that someone is using reverse psychology to get you to act in a certain way, then you can act in another way of your choosing. By the same token, if you use reverse psychology on someone and they don't realize what you are doing, it can get you what you want.

Double reverse psychology is one step/layer further than reverse psychology. Reverse-reverse psychology.Reverse psychology is a form of manipulation/trickery based on Reactance Theory (an unpleasant motivational arousal that emerges when people experience a threat to or loss of their free behaviors). Example is a button with a sign over it saying, “DO NOT PUSH BUTTON”. More often than not, after reading the sign most people feel an urge to push the button because they were told not to.Double reverse psychology goes one step further. In the above example, the posting of the “DO NOT PUSH BUTTON” sign causes people to want to push the button due to reverse psychology. If a specific person is aware of their natural reactance to the instruction and the sign-poster believes their target wouldn’t give in to the reverse psychology, the “DO NOT PUSH BUTTON” sign is posted with intent aligned with the literal posted intent to not push the button.EXAMPLE: You want Sam to push the button, because you rigged the button to deliver an electric jolt. Sam has been tricked by your reverse psychological tricks before, and now that he’s wised up you don’t think he’d fall for them anymore. Out-thinking Sam, you post a “PUSH THIS BUTTON FOR A REWARD” sign. It reads like an obvious trick and nobody pushes the button. But Sam, seeing the sign, pushes the button because he believes there would be a punishment if he didn’t push the button. Sam gets shocked. Too bad for Sam, he has a pacemaker that stops working. Bad prank, bro.
