Why Did I Do That? How is each of us influenced in our decision making process by short cutting the rational thinking mind? This article will examine perceptual defense mechanisms, strategies of compliance, and mechanistic means to produce controlled responses. Further, we'll consider the ethics of compliance.
When is the technical use of compliance strategies necessary, appropriate and ethical? What is the fine line separating "exploitation" from doing a "good job" motivating people, selling product, or influencing those around us? Compliance There are many psychological principles used to influence each of us every day.
Some of these manipulative applications are direct and obvious, while others are so subtle as to be noticeable only to the trained professional. In fact, there is little that one encounters free of a compliance procedure. The reasons are obvious.
If each of us can be made vulnerable then we can be made to act. We'll buy product, join clubs, even allow some stranger to put a bill board on our front lawns without a payment of any kind. Governments, social psychologists and merchandisers have long studied the methods of compliance.
For even longer, these methods have been used to merchandise and herd the masses. Human beings need a reason to act. History is full of accounts reporting the most unlikely of events. From the German attempt to eradicate the Jewish people to the mass suicide of the Jim Jones' followers, history shows people acting in the most unusual and bizarre manners.
They have a reason. When I was much younger, I sold sewing machines and vacuum cleaners door to door. In those days, something called "bait and switch" was legal, or I should say, it wasn't illegal.
This practice consisted of an offer just too good to be true. Let me provide an example. In the early 's credit depended upon deposit. Thus, one needed a down payment. With credit freely available, the most difficult part of making a sale became the down payment.
The company I worked for designed a sales system to obtain this down payment. How was this done? Through different media, the customer would enter a contest. A drawing at the local grocery store, a "count the hidden faces" contest in the Sunday paper, and so forth.
The first place prize was awarded, but everyone else won second prize. What was second prize? Here was the catch, however. And believe me, this type of selling worked so well that eventually it became illegal.
And by the way, I should point out that the national ads were placed only for this purpose. No one ever actually tried to buy one of these machines at the advertised inflated price.From s to , there was an Administered Price Mechanism (APM) system in place in oil sector.
