Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion (Revised) | Robert B PhD Cialdini
Influence, the classic book on persuasion, explains the psychology of why people say "yes" and how to apply these understandings. Dr. Robert Cialdini is the seminal expert in the rapidly expanding field of influence and persuasion. His thirty-five years of rigorous, evidence-based research along with a three-year program of study on what moves people to change behavior has resulted in this highly acclaimed book. You'll learn the six universal principles, how to use them to become a skilled persuader and how to defend yourself against them. Perfect for people in all walks of life, the principles of Influence will move you toward profound personal change and act as a driving force for your success."

A soft pick. Definitely interesting and insightful, but also a bit long winded, so I would sometimes lose the overall point. But overall, a good look at how influence has worked for anyone who wants to influence others and/or prevent themselves from being exploited by unscrupulous others. It may also make you question whether any of your decisions (even your own self-conception) were actually of your own making 🤨🧐😟

“It is difficult to steel ourselves cognitively against scarcity pressures because they have an emotion-arousing quality that makes thinking difficult. In defense, we might try to be alert to a rush of arousal in situations involving scarcity. Once alerted, we can take steps to calm the arousal and assess the merits of the opportunity in terms of why we want it.”

“. . . we should be alert to the trust-enhancing tactic in which communicators first provide mildly negative information about themselves. Through this strategy, they create a perception of honesty that makes all subsequent information seem more believable to observers.”

Reading a book about influence. The factor encouraging most to keep reading rather than doing something like, idk, actually getting something for supper, is Dahlia being very snuggly on my lap #catsoflitsy #reciprocatinghersnuggles #veryinfluentialcat

Really enjoyed this one. It touches on triggers that makes us more prone to comply to compliance requests. The book depicts interesting study cases and psychological aspect of our behavior in different scenarios. Couldn't recommend it more!

I loved the simplicity in the reading. I value the awareness it can create for someone; I especially enjoyed how corporate psychology impacts our daily life‘s, and how it can be misconstrued to create people into shopping machines of habit.

This book was alright, I preferred the straight forward information over the sometimes excessive storytelling aspect of it. Not a bad book but it‘s clearly dated.
