I will be speaking at the Winchester Cafe Scientifique on Monday 4 July 7 for 7:30pm on:
The Psychology of Influence
How to get more of what you want, change minds and see promises kept
- What difference can one word make, when you are in a hurry?
- Why does doing you a small favour make me more likely to do you a big one later?
- How can one question make me more likely to keep my promise? Why was my mum right to put a premium on my title “Dr”?
- When will we stop and help a stranger and when will we walk on past?
All of these questions and more have been explored with fascinating psychology experiments over the past fifty years, which have taught us ever more about how persuasion and influence work. In an entertaining an thought-provoking talk, I will describe some of them.
Where and when?
The talk will be around 20 minutes with plenty of time for a lively Q&A session. The events are well attended and the coffee, tea and pastries are fabulous. I hope you can join me at The Bridge Patisserie, 20 Bridge Street, Winchester. Tables start filling at around 7pm and it is usually standing room only by 7:30.
And here is the bonus… It is free to attend the cafe, with just a voluntary donation to meet the organiser’s costs.
