Counterintuitive insights about constructing profitable relationships- based mostly on analysis into human-computer interplay.

Books like Predictably Irrational and Sway have revolutionized how we view human habits. Now, Stanford professor Clifford Nass has found a algorithm for efficient human relationships, drawn from an unlikely supply: his examine of our interactions with computer systems.

Based mostly on his a long time of analysis, Nass demonstrates that-although we would deny it-we deal with computer systems and different devices like individuals: we empathize with them, argue with them, kind bonds with them. We even mislead them to guard their emotions.

This elementary revelation has led to groundbreaking analysis on how individuals ought to behave with each other. Nass's analysis reveals that:

  • Mixing criticism and reward is a wildly ineffective methodology of analysis
  • Flattery works-even when the recipient is aware of it's faux
  • Introverts and extroverts are every finest at promoting to one in all their very own

Nass's discoveries present nothing lower than a brand new blueprint for profitable human relationships.
