Kate Morgan thanks for this great article!
Most of the tactics elaborated here are taking advantage of our cognitive biases, and this is a really interesting topic. However, to be a little critical with what’s proposed here, I think we can easily raise concerns regarding the ethics of using such tactics.
Manipulation — because this is what we’re talking about here — is either “good” or “bad”, it’s really a matter of point of view and morality.
Examples of philosophical and ethical questioning:
- Changing someone’s belief, okay, but is it really for his/her own good or yours?
- How do you determine what’s good or bad? Can you even determine such good/bad for someone else?
- If so, what’s the difference with a dogma?
Well, anyway really interesting topic.
Thanks again 👍
