6 PRINCIPLES OF EFFECTIVE PERSUASION!!!

Science-of-Persuasion-by-Robert-Cialdini-and-Steve-Martin

The provided link gives an excellent presentation of the 6 major keys to successful persuasion which have been validated by science.

Very briefly if someone likes you, if you are an expert or authority figure, if you do them a favor first, if many have been persuaded already, if they have made a commitment, and if scarcity is emphasized then you are more likely to persuade successfully. Enjoy!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONSENSUS+

logo_consensus

Consensus: n. a common group opinion and/or general group agreement

A public consensus can be thought of as more than 50% having the same opinion or agreeing to some general view.

A scientific consensus is more problematic and realistically a red flag because science should not be dependent on group opinions but should be grounded in scientific facts proven in a laboratory or with the use of scientific principles. It is not at all proven or obvious that global warming is human caused or merely climate change primarily effected by changes in the energy producing ability of the sun.

My personal belief, since there is no proven evidence that humans are responsible for global warming if in fact it does exist, is that the sun is primarily responsible for climate change judging from the fact that winters are very cold and snowy and summers are quite hot with much drought existing in some parts of the world. Minute changes in CO2 levels if they are rising slightly could not possibly explain the rather dynamic and dramatic changes in climate worldwide during the year.

Supposedly the scientific consensus was that there was global warming and that was given up as being untrue and the scientific consensus now is that there is global climate change. If there is such a change then it is in both directions both hot and cold and if you were to truly analyze the data the average temperature throughout the year is rather constant and not changing that much to be alarmed about.

What most concerns me most is that there is no consensus that wilderness must be preserved and expanded at all costs to ensure the long duration health of humans and planet earth itself. We desperately need wilderness as a safety net for future human generations who can depend on it for a healthy supply of food when technological excess makes most food unhealthy for human consumption.

The cleansing power of wilderness to ensure healthy air worldwide or to restore the natural gaseous balance is highly underestimated and few realize this very important fact so vital to our long duration survival. Without healthy air to breathe future generations will be in great danger worldwide.

Gaseous balance is important but so is the amount of particulate matter floating in the air which is causing lower temperatures locally because of the reflecting properties of particulate matter. If anything, particulate matter in the atmosphere means lower average temperatures locally and minute lower temperature effects worldwide and not higher ones.

Political consensus is an abnormal preoccupation with polls being taken of public opinion on a frequent basis trying to show or prove that one political opinion is dominant or worthy of consideration. Polling obsessions are not very healthy and bore the shit out of the consuming public.

Mostly the media has an addiction to polling data and tries to pontificate authoritatively on it boring most of us to the point where we start to ignore the repetitive media on most of what it is saying about other seemingly important matters also.

6 WAYS TO PERSUADE OTHERS PROVEN BY SCIENCE!!!

mcdaniel-persuasion

Very often you would like to persuade someone or get someone to say yes and agree to a suggestion or offer which you are making. There is an excellent link at the end of this blog which explains this very well in a video presentation.

If you want to view the excellent video at a later time then here is a brief and somewhat dry introduction to the topic.

RECIPROCITY: Humans are more likely to reciprocate, give back something, or be persuaded better if you do them a favor in a nice way first or give them something useful free as a token of your potential generosity.

SCARCITY: If humans sense there is a scarce service or product available which seems to be in short supply then there is a tendency to want to get it right away for fear that it will no longer be available again.

AUTHORITY:  An opinion, advice, or guidance from an authority figure with years of experience or expertise in a job is viewed more favorably than a generic or doubtfully qualified individual’s advice or guidance.

CONSISTENCY: Humans like to be consistent with what they have done in the past and if you can get prior commitment to something then chances are greater that they will follow through when asked again.

LIKING: If you share something that you like in common with a human that you are trying to persuade which may be as simple as a mutually liked food then there is more of a tendency to be persuaded or liking what you have to offer. Humans like others who are similar to them, pay them some nice compliments, and have a cooperative attitude in reaching future goals.

CONSENSUS: If you suggest or present evidence that as many as 75% of humans  who have much in common with the one whom you are trying to persuade  are buying or doing the same thing then the probability that they will also want to buy or do that something increases. This is an example of the herd instinct or wanting to become part of the same crowd of similar humans.

THE TRUTH ABOUT STANDARD+

standards_logo-backgroundalpha

Standard: n. a subset(s) considered by an authority or a consensus as a basis of comparison such as (a position on a scale and/or a certain measure) and/or (a principle and/or a model) and/or (a behavioral norm and/or an acceptable deviation) and/or a constant deviation from a subset(s)

 

Standards are made so that we can judge the excellence or perfection of something.

If you do something trying to be excellent or perfect then the standards will determine whether you have been successful or have come within acceptable limits of performance.

Perfection is frequently the absolute standard which few if any are capable of but it is used to measure human, plant, animal, and robotic performance.

How far from the standard your performance is determines whether it is acceptable or unacceptable and needs improvement.

Test standards are the most common ones which most of us come into contact with when we compare our performance to that of others. Who can run the fastest or throw the furthest is a measure of athletic skill but today mental skill is increasingly more important in determining the success or failure of a human in a technological society.

Reliability, durability, efficiency, ease of repair, ease of use, and beauty are standards used to judge the value of objects such as mechanical and electronic devices.

Beauty and human behavior are very subjective standards and they probably are the only ones which can’t be made into an absolute standard which will meet the test of time unchanged.
