Subliminal Influences

Watch this 6 minute video. It’s well worth the time. (HT: Jollyblogger)

Clearly the point of the video is that we are constantly being influenced without even recognizing it. It’s especially enjoyable to see this “trick” played on two advertising gurus since advertisers no doubt use this kind of influence for their client’s advantage.

But let’s personalize the question for just a moment. Sometimes we deny that we are being influenced by our culture whether it’s the movies we watch, the friends we spend time with, the catalogs we look through or something else entirely different. But surely such denials are signs of naivety or blindness to our own condition.

What are you being influenced by? How is that influence shaping your life?
