Jedimindtrick

mind trick was an ability of the Force that allowed the practitioner to influence the thoughts of the affected, generally to the user's advantage. When using the mind trick, the practitioner generally adopted a suggestive tone of voice and used a distinctive gesture, waving their hand in front of the target's face.

The mind trick was said to work only on the weak-minded, and there were certain species, including Toydarians and Hutts that were either highly resistant or immune to it. 

Uses[]

In Season 2 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Obi-wan, Anakin, and Mace Windu influence Cad Bane's mind in a very strong and disturbing version of the Jedi Mind Trick. And the victim does reveal the information not because the trick worked, but because he didn't want them to try again. And seeing as how he was struggling and trying so hard to resist it was definitely not a pleasant experience.
