Reverse 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!
