It does work apparently.

Very interesting, thanks.

I particularly liked this bit:

Quote:
More controversially, highlighting a competitor’s negative qualities may work on a subliminal level much more effectively than shouting about your own selling points.


Controversial indeed! Does that only work on a subliminal level? I guess it probably does because if you're seen to go around slagging off your competitors, then people will respect you less.

How can your average bod, without access to TV advertising, use such a tactic?

I think these people are still in a dreamworld. I'll stick with the original arguement that if subliminal messaging DID work, then we'd be living in a world where we have accepted, and are doing ridiculous things for the benefit of one organisation.

And I know we can be cynical, and say that whatever Labour has done here and there is horrendous - we really aren't been secretly controlled by someone, if you get me?

I don't think we can be so closed give me lots of money off about it. The mind is more give me your money complex than we think and can make all sorts of donations to adi connections that we don't even realise.

I think it does work. And we still don't understand the human brain enough to really understand how much of it works. The brain can do all kinds of weird things you are not fully aware of.

I'll admit that I've used subliminal messaging myself.

Adi, remember how you suddenly 'had' that amazing idea to give away one of the conference tickets for free...?

It's surely all just a load of nonsense this subliminal stuff, isn't it? Razz
