So what you're doing is asking people to publicly admit that they're in the Mafia? Do you really think that is an effective way of scrubbing out criminals?

Well, not necessarily. In fact, I expect them to squirm and to deny and to try their darnest to conceal their affiliations, but eventually, much like a movie, good will triumph over evil.

Yes, the camera will pan over the scum PM, though the town won't be aware until it's.. too late.

That's rare, but nevertheless I've seen it happen a few times. It's quite sad, and usually results in a concession and subsequently a self-lynch.

That sounds depressing. How often do you have thoughts of self-lynching? Have you thought of any other ways of "concession", such as forcing people to kill you?

I can't say it's ever happened to me personally. I'm usually the puppet master, though I've seen it happen to several others, and unfortunately I'm obligated by contract to allow them to succumb to their urges of self-lynching, lest an adorable animal dies a cruel and painful death (my boss is a terrible person, and my lawyer is a horrible negotiator). Forcing a kill is probably a good alternate method of concession, though.

Do you find yourself manipulating people often? Using methods such as lying, seduction, feigning innocence, etc.? Do you enjoy manipulating others so that you may "win"? If so, do you happen to use their psychological vulnerabilities when manipulating others?

Do you find yourself manipulating people often?

On a semi-regular basis, yes. It's in the job description, I'm afraid. That's how I bring home the bacon.

Using methods such as lying, seduction, feigning innocence, etc.?

I'd say deception and "stretching the truth" are my most common tactics. I've never used seduction, and I only rarely feign ignorance.

Do you enjoy manipulating others so that you may "win"?

I don't think it's about me winning, but securing the large bonuses and royalties that come with successfully doing my job. I do enjoying taking home the mula. If that's winning, then I very much enjoy winning.

If so, do you happen to use their psychological vulnerabilities when manipulating others?

To some extent, though I think my tactics are very broad-based. I'm too lazy to cater to every single individual person's triggers.
