I saw this youtube video on Facebook and I thought it was interesting. Now a days people have to be more careful because of there is so much information out there via the internet, radio, newspapers, magazines, tv, etc... that it has become so easy to overwhelm people with nonsense.
News stations parade themselves as being 'objective' and providers of actual 'news' when they are really for all intensive purposes 'biased' organizations that do nothing more than 'editorialize' on the days events. Everything that we see is so cooked and packaged that most of the time the point of view that is portrayed to us the consumers of this information is what Governments or large Corporations want us to see.
The only way to arm oneself against this constant barrage of propaganda is to learn about it because let's face it in this day and age you can't realistically get away from this influence.
Anything you do with very few exceptions will be touched by these various factions.
Tom Vizzini & Kim McFarland are perhaps the skillful trainers of Anchoring that I have come across in over a decade of training in Persuasion and Influence. For those that don't know Anchoring is literally a skill that gives it's users feelings at the touch of a button. Imagine being able to capture virtually any feeling and attaching to it to a signal that would allow you to recall it at anytime, anyplace for any use that one could conceive of. In the below clip is a quick demonstration of something that is called, 'Condiment Anchoring'. Kim in this clip has the person that she is working with recall some very pleasurable states. She then attaches them to some sugar packets as she shifts the intensity of the feelings merely by moving around the sugar packets!
