How easy is it to persuade someone? Some might not even realize how easily messages are being prompted to them,persuasion techniques occur at the unconscious level.
Brad Reifler has learned that Jay Olson started practicing magic tricks at the age of seven and used his ideas of tricking people’s minds to make them work. Later, as a psychology student, he understood that the techniques he had chosen and had noticed to work, especially for a trick of cards, were absolutely well grounded.
He later demonstrated his correctness in an experiment with 105 participants, out of which 103 got easily influenced. The game where you choose a card and it goes out of the magician’s pocket is based on making you actually name that right card. And that is done by letting the right one linger for a longer time in the view.
The same is with rushing people to answer fast- that makes one say the first thing on their mind- and their answer will be a prompted reply. Asking people “whether it is a good idea” to do what you said you want to do will lead to them convincing themselves how good the decision is, and finally give a more trustworthy result, as they will believe their own decision more than anything else.
Another experiment involved playing French or German songs in the spirit shop, and watching the customers choose the brands from the corresponding countries.

McDonald’s is dealing with several issues these days. They are losing consumers daily because the food is mediocre at best, and the store ambiance is not inviting
. There are too many items on the menu and the employees go through the motions of customer service, but their minds are somewhere else.A McDonald’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan found out how disturbing mindless service is to customers when a woman who ordered a burger her way, was given a burger the mindless way said Sam Tabar
. The woman fired a bullet through the drive-through window early one morning, and the staff and everybody in the store freaked-out.
Earlier that day, Shaneka Monique Torres was offered a free burger by the manager, and she accepted it when the bacon was left off her burger. But Torres came back with a friend around 3 am, and she asked for another bacon cheeseburger. Once again, she was given a burger without the bacon. Torres lost it.
Torres was recently found guilty of carrying a concealed weapon, and felony use of a firearm. She will be sentenced in April.
One of Key and Peele’s skits, the Substitute Teacher is getting an upcoming big screen adaptation. The Substitute Teacher is played by Keegan Micheal-Key. He is a teacher fromt he Inner City who is brought to a suburban school. He is quite harsh on his students for simple reasons including their names. As a matter of fact, he has quite an explosive temper.
Marcio Alaor BMG seemed to feel that this is likely a twist on the teachers that had problems with the names of black kids and their favoritism towards white students. This could be a satire on the movies about teachers turning around the lives of troubled kids. However, there is a twist, Jordan Peele is going to be playing a rival in teacher in the upcoming film. Jordan Peele also played in the Substitute Teacher skit.
Before Key and Peele had their own show, they were part of Mad TV. They also have an online vlog where they critique their own shows as two different people.
