Havamal Snippets 113: Beware of women who use psychological tricks

Witch-craft is an old term for a set of skills which in modern terms would include psychological tricks, slight of hand, chemistry (eg for fireworks) etc. 
Knowing some witch-craft (psychological tools for manipulation) would seriously benefit you.  Just read some of the accounts of men who have had to deal with manipulative women over at shrink4men to see the witch-craft that women engage in, then you can see the tale-tell signs and learn how to defend yourself against them, or atleast avoid them.  HERE is a link that shows the types of psychological tricks/magic that women will use to ensnare a man, including the following:
High pitched voice 
Women with higher voices are automatically considered more feminine. High pitched voices are the sign of higher estrogen levels just as a deep voice is an indicator of elevated testosterone. Women who speak in a high pitched voice, activate that “protect the family” response in men. If you’re trying to manipulate men, be sure to break out your higher pitched, sexier voice.
The first step that a man needs to take to defend himself is to be aware of the weapons used against him.  Whether it's physical weapons (which can be countered with body armour) or psychological weapons (which can be countered with mind armour) is irrelevant, the principle remains the same, be aware of something and then take the correct action to counter it.

Ráðumk þér Loddfáfnir
en þú ráð nemir
njóta mundu ef þú nemr
þér munu góð ef þú getr
fjölkunnigri konu
skalattu í faðmi sofa
svá at hon lyki þik liðum  

I advise you, Loddfafnir,
to take advice;
you would benefit, it you took it,
good will come to you, if you accept it:
[6] you must not sleep in the embrace
[5] of a woman skilled in magic
so that she locks you in her limbs --



  1. 'Beware women who use tricks'?
    That implies there are women out there who DONT use tricks!

  2. Hah! That's true, and so obvious aswell! I've probably been desensitized to the nature of women (that they scheme as easily as they breathe) to such an extent that much of their trickery goes under my radar. Note to self: must question more!

    Schopenhauer summed it up well when he said:
    For as lions are furnished with claws and teeth, elephants with tusks, boars with fangs, bulls with horns, and the cuttlefish with its dark, inky fluid, so Nature has provided woman for her protection and defence with the faculty of dissimulation, and all the power which Nature has given to man in the form of bodily strength and reason has been conferred on woman in this form. Hence, dissimulation is innate in woman and almost as characteristic of the very stupid as of the clever. Accordingly, it is as natural for women to dissemble at every opportunity as it is for those animals to turn to their weapons when they are attacked; and they feel in doing so that in a certain measure they are only making use of their rights. Therefore a woman who is perfectly truthful and does not dissemble is perhaps an impossibility.
