WHY WE SAY YES: THE HIDDEN FORCES OF PERSUASION

 

Social creatures like humans constantly seek to influence and persuade others. Research from my lab and others has identified a brain state called "immersion" that indicates when one is being persuaded to take an observable action. This talk will describe the neuroscience of persuasion, share examples with neural data that identify why some communications are persuasive or not, and end with a 5 step process that ensures your next communication will immerse people into the content and move them to action. As a bonus, you will learn why every persuasive communication should start with a story.
