This is the first article on psychology. In this we will just go over what psychology really is.
What is psychology –
Psychology is the science of behaviour and mind, embracing all aspects of conscious and unconscious experience as well as thought. It is an academic discipline and a social science which seeks to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases.
Why am I so interested in psychology?
If you have read ‘My Story’ then you will know why I launched this website. If not, then just head over to the home page and it will all be there. Psychology is becoming more and more powerful because science is discovering new things everyday. And more and more people are understanding the power of the mind and how much you can influence.
The first time I really got into psychology was when I saw an advert on YouTube by a guy named Tai Lopez. He is not the only one who does these kinds of adverts, but he is most known for it. So if you don’t know who I am taking about, you have to go and check him out on YouTube here. Watch the video and come back.
Now, how much did he influence you to take action and go to his website and buy his online courses? Personally I think he did a great job, and I am not the only person who was fascinated by his selling skills. But so was Oxford University, in fact, they have actually studied the whole vide in-depth. Second by second.
If an average person watches that advert, they will fall for it. The fact is, he knows more about psychology than real business. That is the reason he became so popular is such a short time. After making that video, year later he was a millionaire because people brought his programs.
Now let me break it down for you. I will just show you some of the things he did.
So he starts off by saying that he went from $47 in his bank account to being able to buy a Lamborghini. That is the main part of the story. And there’s a lot of evidence to prove that it is a complete lie. Then he turns to the books and he’s convincing you that he has read all of the books in the background. There is also evidence to prove that it is a lie too. Tai made it seem that he’s not pressuring you or forcing you to go to his website, but he is secretly with the words that he uses as well as the way he talks. So just those two things in the first minute of the advert are psychological traps.
That is the perfect example of how powerful psychology is.
