10 Psychology Tricks You Can Use To Influence People Before we get started, it’s important to note that none of these methods fall under what we would term the dark arts of influencing people. Anything that might be harmful to someone in any way, especially to their self esteem, is not included here. These are ways to win friends and influence people using psychology without being a jerk or making someone feel bad. Trick: Get someone to do a favor for you—also known as the Benjamin Franklin effect. Legend has it that Benjamin Franklin once wanted to win over a man who didn’t like him. Scientists decided to test this theory and found that those who were asked by the researcher for a personal favor rated the researcher much more favorably than the other groups did. Trick: Ask for way more than you want at first then scale it back later. This trick is sometimes known as the door in the face approach. Trick: Use a person’s name, or their title depending on the situation. Trick: Flattery will actually get you everywhere. Offer They Can’t Refuse

Elsie's Handwriting Statement Wall I know I say this all the time, but... FAVORITE PROJECT EVER. This statement wall was so much fun to create! I love the texture that it adds to our small bedroom. It feels instantly more cozy in our space. I was inspired by this wall (by Numbered Street Designs). Before we started painting, we taped lines about 2-3 feet apart all the way up the wall. Choosing the words to repeat was a little scary. We borrowed my dads big ladder and 3 days later... this wall was done! I'm so happy with our new space. It's the best feeling in the world to finish up one space at a time, week by week! xo.

Friedrich Nietzsche Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (/ˈniːtʃə/[1] or /ˈniːtʃi/;[2] German: [ˈfʁiːdʁɪç ˈvɪlhɛlm ˈniːt͡sʃə]; 15 October 1844 – 25 August 1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, composer and Latin and Greek scholar. He wrote several critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, displaying a fondness for metaphor[3] and irony. Nietzsche's key ideas include perspectivism, the will to power, the death of God, the Übermensch and eternal recurrence. One of the key tenets of his philosophy is "life-affirmation", which embraces the realities of the world in which we live over the idea of a world beyond. Nietzsche began his career as a classical philologist—a scholar of Greek and Roman textual criticism—before turning to philosophy. As his caretaker, his sister assumed the roles of curator and editor of Nietzsche's manuscripts. Life[edit] Youth (1844–69)[edit] Nietzsche in his younger days In 1866, he read Friedrich Albert Lange's History of Materialism.

DIY: Polka Dot Nursery Wall Michelle was one of our Project of the Month finalists a couple months back, and we loved all her DIY projects but especially her innovative use of contact paper for her the awesome polka dot nursery wall in her son’s baby room. Thank you, Michelle, for sharing with our readers! I desperately wanted over-sized, whimsical, silver polka dots for the walls of my gender-neutral nursery. Believe it or not, my polka dots are made with silver contact paper from a home improvement store. Project list: Contact paper, circle cutter, credit card, self-healing mat and something heavy to weigh down the contact paper (I used oversized candlesticks) 1. 2. 3. My dots are five inches in circumference (roughly the size of a CD), and I got 39 dots per roll (give or take a few misfires). Once you have enough dots, the next challenge is getting them up on the wall. I used Christmas ribbon as my moveable guide; I started four inches below the ceiling and away from the adjoining wall. Anyone inspired?

Easily embarrassed? Study finds people will trust you more If tripping in public or mistaking an overweight woman for a mother-to-be leaves you red-faced, don’t feel bad. A new study from the University of California, Berkeley, suggests that people who are easily embarrassed are also more trustworthy, and more generous. In short, embarrassment can be a good thing. Psychologist Dacher Keltner, a coauthor of the study, demonstrates a typical gesture of embarrassment “Embarrassment is one emotional signature of a person to whom you can entrust valuable resources. It’s part of the social glue that fosters trust and cooperation in everyday life,” said UC Berkeley social psychologist Robb Willer, a coauthor of the study published in this month’s online issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Not only are the UC Berkeley findings useful for people seeking cooperative and reliable team members and business partners, but they also make for helpful dating advice.

10 Famous Psychological Experiments That Could Never Happen Today Nowadays, the American Psychological Association has a Code of Conduct in place when it comes to ethics in psychological experiments. Experimenters must adhere to various rules pertaining to everything from confidentiality to consent to overall beneficence. Review boards are in place to enforce these ethics. But the standards were not always so strict, which is how some of the most famous studies in psychology came about. 1. At Johns Hopkins University in 1920, John B. Watson tested classical conditioning on a 9-month-old baby he called Albert B. 2. Solomon Asch tested conformity at Swarthmore College in 1951 by putting a participant in a group of people whose task was to match line lengths.
