Does it work? Have you fallen victim to it? Could we argue that it's more productive than the usual methods of persuasion?

Yes it does work, far better than normal psychology. It's amazing how the mind is like a piece of clay, waiting to be molded.

it depends on the person.  if the person you are reverse psyching to is impressionable, they may just believe the reverse message as true.  However, if they person you are reversing to is an anti-athority type, they will do or believe the opposite of what you tell them....generally.
