Shankar Vedantam uses science and storytelling to reveal the unconscious patterns that drive human behavior, shape our choices and direct our relationships.
Think back to the last time someone convinced you to do something you didn’t want to do, or to spend money you didn’t want to spend. What techniques did that person use to persuade you? This week, we continue our look at the science of influence with psychologist Robert Cialdini, and explore how these techniques can be used for both good and evil.
Did you listen to the first part of our episodes on influence? Don’t miss last week’s episode on how to turn a “no” into a “yes.” And if you enjoy the show and would like to help us make more episodes of Hidden Brain, please consider supporting our work. Thanks!
