The article shows, teachers are insufficiently protected from manipulative actions from students. Assertiveness helps protect from manipulation and has a negative effect on personal anxiety and a positive effect on motivation to succeed. The degree of personal exposure to manipulation is higher among students than among teachers. As objects of manipulation, students become more aggressive than their teachers, but the latter experience anguish more often. Students get more positive emotions from their own manipulations as compared to their tutors. Teachers feel more ashamed of their manipulations than students.
