3 things the society uses to manipulate with you and controls your behavior

Are you a puppet? Think about everything you’ve bought last week, the choices you’ve made, the places you’ve visited, the favors you’ve made, and then answer the question. 

The chances are you are a puppet and you are not even aware of that! It’s all about the tactics and the strategies. These tactics are usually stronger than the normal techniques for convincing. So in order to take the control over your life it is important to know what are the things that have a huge influence over your mental process.

1. An award

If you do something, you are given an award in return. For example, in a shop, you are about to buy a pair of boots for 500$ and you are told that you are given another pair for free, only if you buy the first pair. Actually what you do is, you overpay the first ones. Bare this in mind.

2. A gift

This is the most popular one. You are given a gift “for no reason”. Wait for it! Wait for it! After a while you are asked to sign something, to agree with something, to go somewhere, to reveal something, to stay quiet… Ohh these manipulative yet creative minds….

3. Positive characteristics

Of course everyone loves himself and thinks best of himself. However, some businesses are making a great use of this. For example a bank will tell you that you are intelligent, only and only if you sign the contract where you agree to do a long-term plan with them. Guess who’s stuck!!?

Therefore, before you react-think! Before you cure it-avoid it!
