Linguistic Ju-Jitsu: Insultivate

Haven't had any Linguistic Ju-Jitsu posts in a while. Here's one I stumbled upon from my oldest friend, A. I've both paraphrased and extrapolated a bit.

insultivate
[in-suhlt-tuh-veyt]
verb
1. motivation by insult

Y'know, like when ads try to insult you into being motivated to work out. Or like what the Army does to you on a daily basis.
