How We’re Being Manipulated Out Of Our Money
Dr. Robert Cialdini, "The Godfather of Influence", explains how to defend ourselves
Every hour of every day, we’re bombarded by attempts to influence our behavior — what to buy, how to vote, what to click on next…
And most of the time, we are completely oblivious to them.
As humans, we have psychological triggers that, once activated, make us much more vulnerable to the schemes of marketers, politicians and anyone else looking to manipulate us — as well as to separate us from our freedoms and our money.
Nobody understands the science of persuasion better than Dr. Robert Cialdini, famously known as “The Godfather of Influence”. In today’s video — which is one of my favorite interviews I’ve done so far — he identifies the specific techniques being used to pull our strings, and explains how to best defend against them.
The goal of many of the psychological tricks being used against us is to shift our brains into a state where our emotions (which are more easily manipulable) overpower our rational mind when it comes to decision-making.
Which is why it’s important to partner with a financial advisor who can help you avoid making irrationally emotional decisions with your money, can craft an appropriate portfolio strategy for you given your needs, and apply sound risk management protection where appropriate:
