The Mere Exposure Effect: How You Are Being Manipulated Read it here: https://larrygmaguire.com/mere-exposure-effect/ The mere exposure effect says I can manipulate you easily. I want to cleverly influence you towards doing what I want without you so much as suspecting I’m a crafty bastard. You’re asleep at the wheel you see and ripe for this manipulation. I have an agenda and I intend to act purposefully to get what I want from this transaction. You’re an employee, a citizen, a student, customer or a supplier and I want to convince you to do what I want. So I’ll employ a few tricks of mind control to convince you to do this thing I want. And when we’re done you’ll be happy and I’ll be happy too – K? Once everyone is happy then it’s all good right? OK, well you might not be happy but I will have achieved what I want. Maybe next time you’ll be better at recognising these circumstances and know you’re being manipulated. Or maybe you won’t. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sunday-letters/message
