    $\begingroup$ One essential ingredient here would be to get at least a basic understanding of Psychopaths and how they often operate. There are countless books available on psychopathy. There are also books available on manipulation. One book, albeit dated, that I found interesting was Methoden der Manipulation, although I am not sure whether an English translation exists. $\endgroup$ – Michael Jun 17 '16 at 17:35

From a hackers perspective I would recommend to check out a term called "social engineering". This is all about manipulating people in order to get sensitive information.

A great book about this is called The Art of Human Hacking

Look for persuasion methods. Read any book written for sales people. They use these methods a lot. Every time when I came across a sales person I bring my shield up because I know for a fact that most of them are well trained in these methods. For them it is a way of living
