Is there a difference between 'to force somebody to do something' and 'force somebody into doing something'?
What about other expressions like 'persuade sb to do/into doing sth', 'trick sb to do/into doing sth', etc.?
I came across this in the book Word Perfect vocabulary for fluency:
Push somebody to do something = try to force someone to do something
Push somebody into doing something = succeed in forcing someone to to something
That is, when you push someone into making a decision, the person has made a decision, but when you push someone to make a decision, you've tried to get him to make a decision, but he has not necessaily made a decision.
Is it the same about the other expressions?
