Understanding Others

with one comment

Four great presuppositions for your daily interactions can be found in the Lifehack.org article, Four Rules to Understand What Makes People Tick. The high points:

  1. People Mostly Care About Themselves
  2. People are Motivated by Selfish Altruism
  3. People Don’t Think Much
  4. Conformity is the Norm

I think these fit nicely with Cialdini’s principles of persuasion.

  1. I’ve just started a really interesting article in the New Scientist about the survival advantages, species wise, of altrusitic behaviour from individual member sof that species. But I’ll go with the other three 😉
