Action

Tempt the enemy into moving somewhere you wan them to be or away from where you do not want them to be.

Make feints at them until they attack back.

Retreat such that they chase after you or just back away so they can advance.

'Be seen', such that the come to investigate.

Attack a minor target so they send a rescue force.

Analysis

If you can get the enemy to move into a position of weakness then you can attack them, perhaps by ambush.

Luring a small force away from a larger force makes the small force vulnerable and weakens the larger force.

Luring the enemy away from a position allows you to take that position or pass through it. Like a mother bird luring a predator away from the nest, you can also lure an enemy away when they are likely to discover your secrets.

Example

 

Analogy

In discussion, offer weak arguments for an unimportant point that lures the other person away from arguing against points which are important to you.
