᠕ digital Pre-Suasion: A Revolutionary Way to Influence and Persuade ᡤ By Robert Cialdini Ph.D. ᢚ Pre Suasion PRE SUASION An Introduction As a kind of secret agent, I once infiltrated the training programs of a broad range of professions dedicated to getting us to say yes For almost three years, I recorded the lessons taught to aspiring automobile salespeople, direct marketers, TV advertisers, frontline managers, charity fund raisers, public relations specialists, and corporate recruiters My intent was to find out which practices worked time after time So I answered the organizations ads for trainees or otherwise arranged to be present in their classrooms, notebook in hand, ready to absorb the wisdom born of long standing experience in the business of persuasion In these programs, advanced trainees were often allowed to accompany and observe an old pro who was conducting business I always jumped at those opportunities because I wanted to see if I could register not just what practitioners in general did to succeed but also what the best of them did One such practice quickly surfaced that shook my assumptions Id expected that the aces of their professions would spend time than the inferior performers developing the specifics of their requests for change the clarity, logic, and desirable features of them Thats not what I found PRE SUASION The highest achievers spent time crafting what they did and said before making a request They set about their mission as skilled gardeners who know that even the finest seeds will not take root in stony soil or bear fullest fruit in poorly prepared ground They spent much of their time toiling in the fields of influence thinking about and engaging in cultivationin ensuring that the situations they were facing had been pretreated and readied for growth Of course, the best performers also considered and cared about what, specifically, they would be offering in those situations But much than their less effective colleagues, they didnt rely on the legitimate merits of an offer to get it accepted they recognized that the psychological frame in which an appeal is first placed can carry equal or even greater weight Besides, they were frequently in no position to tinker with the merits of what they had to offer someone else in the organization had created the product, program, or plan they were recommending, often in fixed form Their responsibility was to present it most productively To accomplish that, they did something that gave them a singular kind of persuasive traction before introducing their message, they arranged to make their audience sympathetic to it Theres a critical insight in all this for those of us who want to learn to be influential The best persuaders become the best through pre suasionthe process of arranging for recipients to be receptive to a message before they encounter it To persuade optimally, then, its necessary to pre suade optimally But how In part, the answer involves an essential but poorly appreciated tenet of all communication what we present first changes the way people experience what we present to them next Consider how a small procedural difference has improved the bottom line of the consulting business of a Toronto based colleague of mine For years, when bidding on a big project, it wasnt unusual to get price resistance from the client, who might propose a 10 percent or 15 percent reduction That was frustrating, he says, because he never felt comfortable padding the budget to cover this kind of potential pushback on costs If he did agree to the cut, his profit margin became so thin it barely paid to take the business If he didnt acquiesce, he either lost the job or produced partners who were initially disgruntled because he wasnt willing to work with them on price Then, during one proposal meeting, he accidentally hit upon a maneuver that rid him of the problem forever It wasnt a step by step attempt to specify or justify each of the expenses involved in his services hed long since given up on that approach, which only brought scrutiny to the bill Instead, after his standard presentation and just before declaring his 75,000 fee, he joked, As you can tell, Im not going to be able to charge you a million dollars for this The client looked up from the written proposal hed been studying and said, Well, I can agree to that The meeting proceeded without a single subsequent reference to compensation and ended with a signed contract My colleague claims that this tactic of mentioning an admittedly unrealistic price tag for a job doesnt always win the businesstoo many other factors are involved for thatbut it almost always eliminates challenges to the charges Although he stumbled onto it, my friend is not alone in experiencing the remarkable effects of merely launching a large number into the air and, consequently, into the minds of others Researchers have found that the amount of money people said theyd be willing to spend on dinner went up when the restaurant was named Studio 97, as opposed to Studio 17 that the price individuals would pay for a box of Belgian chocolates grew after theyd been asked to write down a pair of high versus low digits from their Social Security numbers that participants in a study of work performance predicted their effort and output would be better when the study happened to be labeled experiment twenty seven versus experiment nine and that observers estimates of an athletes performance increased if he wore a high versus low number on his jersey Whats , the potent impact of what goes first isnt limited to big initial numbers Other researchers have shown that just after drawing a set of long lines on a sheet of paper, college students estimated the length of the Mississippi River as much greater than those who had just drawn a set of short lines In fact, the impact of what goes first isnt limited to numerics at all customers in a wine shop were likely to purchase a German vintage if, before their choice, theyd heard a German song playing on the shops sound system similarly, they were likely to purchase a French vintage if theyd heard a French song playing.2 So its not one particular experience that guides whats done later It can be exposure to a number, the length of a line, or a piece of music and, as we will see in later chapters, it can be a brief burst of attention to any of a variety of selected psychological concepts But, because this book is mainly about the things that enhance persuasion, those chapters give special treatment to the concepts that most elevate the likelihood of assent Its important here to take note of my choice of the word likelihood, which reflects an inescapable reality of operating in the realm of human behaviorclaims of certainties in that province are laughable No persuasive practice is going to work for sure whenever it is applied Yet there are approaches that can consistently heighten the probability of agreement And that is enough A meaningful increase in those odds is enough to gain a decisive advantage In the home, its enough to give us the means to get greater compliance with our wisheseven from that most resistant of all audiences our children In business, its enough to give organizations that implement these approaches the means to outpace their rivalseven rivals with equally good cases to make Its also enough to give those who know how to employ these approaches the means to become better, even best, performers within an organization Take, for instance, one such best performer we can call him Jim because, what the heck, that was his name who worked for a firm whose training program I had entered to study The company made expensive, heat activated fire alarm systems for the home, and Jim was its top salesperson He didnt win every sale, of course, but the likelihood that he would emerge from a sales call with a signed contract was, month after month, better than his counterparts After an initial period of classroom instruction, I was assigned to spend the next several days accompanying various salespeople, to learn how they approached the selling process This always involved an in home visit to a family that had scheduled an appointment for a presentation On account of his star status, I looked closely at Jims technique One practice stood out as central to his success Before beginning his sales effort, he established an aura of trust with the family Trust is one of those qualities that leads to compliance with requests, provided that it has been planted before the request is made Despite the mountains of scientific reports and scores of books that have been written making that point and suggesting ways to achieve trust, Jim accomplished it in a fashion Ive not seen in any of them He did it by pretending to be a bit of a screwup The sales sequence taught to all company representatives was fairly standard to the industry After making small talk to build rapport, the prospects usually a couple were given a timed ten minute written test of fire safety knowledge designed to reveal how little they knew about the actual dangers of a home fire Then, at the completion of the test, representatives began the active sales pitch by demonstrating the alarm system and walking prospects through a book of materials documenting the systems superiority to all others Everyone else brought the book into the house from the start and kept it close by, ready for use Not Jim, though He would wait until a couple had begun taking the knowledge test, when hed slap his forehead and say, Oh, I forgot some really important information in my car, and I need to get it I dont want to interrupt the test so, would you mind if I let myself out and back into your home The answer was always some form of Sure, go ahead Oftentimes it required giving him a door key I watched Jim make three presentations Each time, his forgetfulness surfaced in the same way and at the same point On the drive back to the office later that evening, I asked him about it Twice, he wouldnt give me a straight answer, annoyed that I was pressing to discover his selling secret But when I persisted, he blurted, Think, Bob Who do you let walk in and out of your house on their own Only somebody you trust, right I want to be associated with trust in those families minds It was a brilliant tricknot an entirely ethical one, but brilliant nonethelessbecause it embodied one of the central assertions of this book the truly influential things we say and do first act to pre suade our audience, which they accomplish by altering audience members associations with what we do or say next In chapter 7, I will forward the argument that all mental activity arises as patterns of associations within a vast and intricate neural network, and that influence attempts will be successful only to the extent that the associations they trigger are favorable to change Jims tactic provides a good illustration To become a top salesperson, he didnt have to modify the features of the alarm system he was selling or the logic, wording, or style of how he portrayed it in fact, he didnt stray from the standard presentation at all Instead, he only had to first become associated with the concept of trust, the intensely positive other associations of which would then become linked to him and his advice Even Jims unorthodox method of connecting himself to the concept of trust was purely associative He didnt claim to be the sort of individuala close friend or family member, perhapsthat people let have open access to their homes He just arranged to be treated in way characteristic of trusted individuals of this sort Its noteworthy that this tactic was the only real difference I registered between Jims presentations and those of his significantly less successful coworkers Such is the strength of mere association All told, there are any of a number of first steps, besides establishing trust, persuaders can take that will make audiences receptive to the case they intend to present The steps can take multiple forms, and, accordingly, theyve been given multiple labels by behavioral scientists They can be called frames or anchors or primes or mindsets or first impressions We will encounter each of those types in the remainder of these pages, where, throughout, Im going to refer to them as openersbecause they open up things for influence in two ways In the first, they simply initiate the process they provide the starting points, the beginnings of persuasive appeals But it is in their second function that they clear the way to persuasion, by removing existing barriers In that role, they promote the openings of minds andfor would be persuaders like Jimof protectively locked doors.3 THE BIG SAME Theres a joke Ive heard influence practitioners tell about the difficulties of persuading prospects to move in a desired direction It tracks an exchange between the sales representative of a marketing firm and a potential client who wants to bring out a new brand of frozen spinach Client Do you have experience marketing new food products Sales rep We have quite a lot of experience there Client Does that include experience in selling frozen food Sales rep Yes, it does Client How about frozen vegetables Sales rep Weve brought several types to market over the years Client Spinach Sales rep Actually, yes, spinach too Client leaning forward now, voice straining in anticipation Whole leaf or chopped At business conferences, the joke produces knowing, derisive laughter from the influence professionals who hear it Of course it was never funny the times the joke was on themwhen theyd lost a contract or sale because a prospective customer, caught up in some detail of a difference, missed the big picture of what they had to offer The contemptuous reaction to the jokes punch line always struck me as odd, because I had found persuasion practitioners guilty of the same kind of narrownessnot in meetings with a customer or client but in the training sessions designed to prepare them for those meetings It wasnt long after I began operating undercover in the training classes of influence practitioners that I encountered something curious participants in the sessions were nearly always informed that persuasion had to be approached differently in their particular profession than in related professions When it comes to swaying people, advertising works differently than marketing marketing works differently than fund raising fund raising works differently than public relations public relations works differently than lobbying lobbying works differently than recruitment And so on Whats , distinctions were stressed even within professions Selling whole life insurance is different from selling term insurance selling trucks is different from selling cars selling by mail or online is different from selling in stores selling products is different from selling services selling to an individual is different from selling to a business selling wholesale is different from selling retail Its not that the trainers were wrong in distinguishing their own bailiwick from those of their professional neighbors But this steady referencing of their uniqueness led to a pair of lapses in judgment First, they often detoured into distinctions of little consequence Worse, in their emphasis on whats different among the successful persuasion professions, they didnt focus enough on an extraordinarily useful other question Whats the same This oversight seemed a serious failing because if trainees could indeed be shown what proved convincing across the widest set of influence situations, it would help them win the day in all manner of circumstances, novel and familiar If they could indeed be educated to understand and employ the universal principles that undergird effective persuasion, the details of the change they were hoping to generate wouldnt matter They would do swimmingly whether their influence attempt involved wholesale or retail, whole life or term, whole leaf or chopped.4 My goal during those times spent scrutinizing commercial training programs, then, was to discover what lies in parallel beneath all the truly superior professional approaches to influence A driving question for me throughout that nearly three year period was, What do these approaches have in common to make them work so well The limited footprint of the answer that emerged surprised me I identified only six psychological principles that appeared to be deployed routinely in long prospering influence businesses Ive claimed that the sixreciprocation, liking, social proof, authority, scarcity, and consistencyrepresent certain psychological universals of persuasion and Ive treated each, one per chapter, in my earlier book, Influence THE BIG DIFFERENCE In a portion of Pre Suasion, I have tried to make instructive contact with those principles again while taking an important change in direction The earlier book was written to inform consumers how to resist influence attempts employed in an undue or unwelcome way One factor that spurred me to write this book is that, although Influence has now appeared in multiple editions and sold copies than I could have sensibly imagined, few consumer groups ever contacted me for follow up But my phone hasnt stopped ringing with requests from two other types of callers corporate representatives inviting me to speak to their groups and individual readers wanting to know how to become influential in everyday interactions with coworkers, friends, neighbors, and family members It became plain that, than just learning how to deflect or reject it, large numbers of people are ravenously interested in learning how to harness persuasion In contrast to Influence, one aim of this book is to help satisfy that hunger directly, but with a pair of dietary restrictions The first concerns the ethics of persuasive success Just because we can use psychological tactics to gain consent doesnt mean we are entitled to them The tactics are available for good or ill They can be structured to fool and thereby exploit others But they can also be structured to inform and thereby enhance others Chapter 13 offers a rationalebeyond the traditional one based on the economic consequences of a damaged reputationfor why organizations should steer sharply away from unethical persuasive practices those practices will lend themselves to the attraction and retention of employees who find cheating acceptable and who will ultimately cheat the organization as a consequence This book also abides by a second stipulation Although the material should be seasoned liberally with personal illustrations and accounts, the meat of the evidence has to be scientifically based In any effort to manage the influence process successfully, a scientifically grounded approach provides a real advantage Traditionally, persuasion has been viewed as an elusive art the province of those few with an intuitive grasp of how to turn a phrase just so But something radical has happened to the study of persuasion during the past half century that permits the rest of us to benefit as fully as the born masters Researchers have been applying a rigorous scientific approach to the question of which messages lead people to concede, comply, and change They have documented the sometimes staggering impact of making a request in a standard way versus making the identical request in a different, better informed fashion Besides the sheer impact of the obtained effects, there is another noteworthy aspect of the results the process of persuasion is governed by psychological laws, which means that similar procedures can produce similar results over a wide range of situations And, if persuasion is lawful, it isunlike artistic inspirationlearnable Whether possessed of an inherent talent for influence or not, whether insightful about the methods or not, whether a gifted artisan of the language or not, it is possible to learn scientifically established techniques that allow any of us to be influential.5 Importantly different from Influence is the science based evidence of not just what best to say to persuade but also when best to say it From that evidence, it is possible to learn how to recognize and monitor the natural emergence of opportune moments of influence It is also possible but perilous, from an ethical standpoint to learn how to createto makethose moments Whether operating as a moment monitor or a moment maker, the individual who knows how to time a request, recommendation, or proposal properly will do exceedingly well ITS ABOUT TIME ING Its about time that I finished this book that is in one sense about timing in fact, its several years late I intended to write it while away from my home university during a leave of absence at a well known business school There, I figured, Id have access to knowledgeable colleagues who could help me think about relevant issues, as well as an uncluttered calendar that would allow me the blocks of time I needed to write A month or so before I was to relocate, I was negotiating with the associate dean about certain aspects of my visit that stood to make it fruitfulan office near respected colleagues, secretarial assistance, telephone, parking, and library privilegeswhen I received a fateful call from him It began wonderfully Bob, he said, I have good news I was able to get you the office you wanted the computer in there is powerful than the one you asked for dont worry about access to a secretary, the library, parking, long distance callswell take care of all that I was grateful and told him how much I appreciated all hed done for me He waited a beat and replied, Well, theres something you could do for me Weve just experienced the need for someone to teach a specialized marketing class for our MBA students Im in a bind, and it would really help me out if you could do it I knew that agreeing to his request would torpedo my chances of completing the planned book during my stay because 1 I had never taught in a business school before, which meant learning a new set of teaching norms 2 I had never taught a marketing class before, which meant developing an entire course with coordinated lectures, readings, exercises, and exams and 3 I had never taught MBAs before, which meant, for the first time in my career, Id be allocating much of my out of class activities to the questions, comments, and needs of the most relentless students known to the teaching profession first year MBAs I agreed anyway I couldnt see any other appropriate option, not in the instant after expressing my sincere thanks for everything this moment maker had just provided If he had asked the day before or the day after, I would have been able to say no, explaining that there was a book I needed to write during my stay But the circumstances were different inside his privileged moment Because of what he had just done for me, there was no socially acceptable alternative to saying yes I can only be glad he didnt need a kidney So, owing to the demands of the moment, yes it necessarily was And, yes, at the end of my leave of absence, arranged specifically to write this book, there was no book Family members were disappointed, as were a few editors, and I was disappointed in myself I can see a pair of upsides to this sequence of events, though First, instructive new research has accumulated within the domain of persuasion science, which I have incorporated into the writing Second, the associate deans extraordinarily effective maneuver illustrates perfectly another major assertion of this book pre suasive practices create windows of opportunity that are far from propped open permanently I am confident that I would have been able to muster the resources to decline the mans request if he had made it in a separate, subsequent phone call When its high time to ask Fortunately, there are many other factors besides the effects of cannabis that increase assent if we time our requests to their presence Doonesbury 2013 G B Trudeau Reprinted with permission of Universal Uclick All rights reserved.Its because of the only temporary receptiveness that pre suasive actions often produce in others that Ive introduced the concept of privileged moments The meaning of the word privileged is straightforward, referring to special, elevated status The word moment, though, is complex, as it evokes a pair of meanings One connotes a time limited period in this case, the window of opportunity following a pre suasive opener, when a proposals power is greatest The other connotation comes from physics and refers to a unique leveraging force that can bring about unprecedented movement These yoked dimensions, temporal on the one hand and physical on the other, have the capacity to instigate extraordinary change in yet a third, psychological, dimension The remaining chapters, described briefly below, show how.6 PART 1 PRE SUASION THE FRONTLOADING OF ATTENTION Chapter 2 Privileged Moments Chapter 2 explicates the concept of privileged moments, identifiable points in time when an individual is particularly receptive to a communicators message The chapter also presents and supports a fundamental thesis the factor most likely to determine a persons choice in a situation is often not the one that offers the most accurate or useful counsel instead, it is the one that has been elevated in attention and thereby in privilege at the moment of decision Chapter 3 The Importance of Attention Is Importance Chapter 3 explores and documents one central reason that channeled attention leads to pre suasion the human tendency to assign undue levels of importance to an idea as soon as ones attention is turned to it The chapter looks at the effects of channeled attention in three different arenas effective online marketing efforts, positive consumer product reviews, and successful wartime propaganda campaigns Chapter 4 Whats Focal Is Causal Chapter 4 adds a second reason for why channeled attention leads to pre suasion In the same way that attentional focus leads to perceptions of importance, it also leads to perceptions of causality If people see themselves giving special attention to some factor, they become likely to think of it as a cause The influence related upshots of the whats focal is presumed causal effect are examined in domains such as lottery number choices and false confessions in police interrogations Chapter 5 Commanders of Attention 1 The Attractors If elevated attention provides pre suasive leverage, are there any features of information that automatically invite such attention and therefore dont even require a communicators special efforts Chapter 5 examines several of these naturally occurring commanders of attention the sexual, the threatening, and the different Chapter 6 Commanders of Attention 2 The Magnetizers Besides the advantages of drawing attention to a particular stimulus, there is considerable benefit to holding it there The communicator who can fasten an audiences focus onto the favorable elements of an argument raises the chance that the argument will go unchallenged by opposing points of view, which get locked out of the attentional environment as a consequence Chapter 6 covers certain kinds of information that combine initial pulling power with staying power the self relevant, the unfinished, and the mysterious PART 2 PROCESSES THE ROLE OF ASSOCIATION Chapter 7 The Primacy of Associations I Link, Therefore I Think Once attention has been channeled to a selected concept, what is it about the concept that leads to a shift in responding All mental activity is composed of patterns of associations and influence attempts, including pre suasive ones, will be successful only to the extent that the associations they trigger are favorable to change Chapter 7 shows how both language and imagery can be used to produce desirable outcomes such as greater job performance, positive personnel evaluations, andin one especially noteworthy instancethe release of prisoners kidnapped by the Afghan Taliban Chapter 8 Persuasive Geographies All the Right Places, All the Right Traces There is a geography of influence Just as words and images can prompt certain associations favorable to change, so can places Thus, it becomes possible to send ourselves in desired directions by locating to physical and psychological environments prefit with cues associated with our relevant goals Its also possible for influencers to achieve their goals by shifting others to environments with supportive cues For instance, young women do better on science, math, and leadership tasks if assigned to rooms with cues photos, for example of women known to have mastered the tasks Chapter 9 The Mechanics of Pre suasion Causes, Constraints, and Correctives A communicator pre suades by focusing recipients initially on concepts that are aligned, associatively, with the information yet to be delivered But by what mechanism The answer involves an underappreciated characteristic of mental activity its elements dont just fire when ready, they fire when readied Chapter 9 examines this mechanisms operation in such varied phenomena as how advertising imagery works, how infants can be pre suaded toward helpfulness, and how opiate drug addicts can be pre suaded into performing an important therapeutic activity that none would consent to otherwise PART 3 BEST PRACTICES THE OPTIMIZATION OF PRE SUASION Chapter 10 Six Main Roads to Change Broad Boulevards as Smart Shortcuts On which specific concepts should an audiences attention be focused for the greatest pre suasive effect Attention should be channeled to one or another of the universal principles of influence treated in my earlier book, Influence reciprocity, liking, authority, social proof, scarcity, and consistency There is good reason for their prevalence and success, for these are the principles that typically steer people in the right direction when they are deciding what to do Chapter 11 Unity 1 Being Together Chapter 11 reveals an additional seventh universal principle of influence unity There is a certain type of unityof identitythat best characterizes a We relationship and that, if pre suasively raised to consciousness, leads to acceptance, cooperation, liking, help, trust, and, consequently, assent The chapter describes the first of two main ways to build We relationships by presenting cues of genetic commonality associated with family and place Chapter 12 Unity 2 Acting Together Besides the unitizing effect of being together in the same genealogy or geography, We relationships can result from acting together synchronously or collaboratively When people act in unitary ways, they become unitized and when such activity is arranged pre suasively, it produces mutual liking and support Chapter 12 provides illustrations in the forms of greater helping among strangers, cooperation among teammates, self sacrifice among four year olds, friendship among schoolchildren, love among college students, and loyalty between consumers and brands Chapter 13 Ethical Use A Pre Pre Suasive Consideration Those using a pre suasive approach must decide what to present immediately before their message But they also have to make an even earlier decision whether, on ethical grounds, to employ such an approach Often, communicators from commercial organizations place profit above ethics in their appeals Thus, there is reason to worry that the pre suasive practices described in this book will be used unethically However, chapter 13 argues against unethical use, offering data from studies indicating that such tactics undermine organizational profits in three potent ways Chapter 14 Post Suasion Aftereffects Pre suaders want to do than create temporary changes via momentary shifts in attention they want to make those changes durable Accordingly, chapter 14 provides the behavioral science evidence for two kinds of procedures that increase the likelihood that changes generated initially will take root and last well beyond pre suasive moments.The great social psychologist RobertCialdini has written another timeless and indispensable book about thepsychology of influence Ill be recommending it for
