How to get people to do want you want – The Globe and Mail

 

How to get people to do want you want – The Globe and Mail.

This article was forwarded to me and is a really interesting deconstruction of how the author ended up doing something fairly major that she didn’t want to do.  Well-written, funny and best of all, a very human look at why we end up doing things we don’t (think) we want to.

In brief, she changed her tune based on: flattery, peer pressure and watching her “no, but” excuses crushed with charm.  In sum, psychological ploys won over logic.
