Negative subliminal messages work ..... hypnotize

People can perceive subliminal messages, particularly if the message is negative, according to a UK study.

In three experiments at University College London, participants were briefly shown masked words and asked to classify them as emotional or neutral.

The study, published in the journal Emotion, says being able to react to tiny cues helps us to avoid danger and may have useful marketing uses.

But critics say there is no evidence this would work outside a laboratory.
Professor Nilli Lavie from University College London showed 50 participants a series of words on a computer screen.

Each word appeared on-screen for only a fraction of a second - much too fast for the participants to consciously read the word.

The words were either positive (eg cheerful, flower, peace), negative (eg agony, despair, murder) or neutral (eg box, ear, kettle).

After each word, the participants had to choose whether the word was neutral or emotional (positive or negative) and how confident they were of their decision.

The researchers found that the participants answered most accurately when responding to negative words, even when they believed they were merely guessing the answer.

They were able to accurately categorise 66% of the negative words compared to 50% of the positive ones.

'Evolutionary advantages'

Professor Lavie said: "We have shown that people can perceive the emotional value of subliminal messages and have demonstrated conclusively that people are much more attuned to negative words.

"Clearly, there are evolutionary advantages to responding rapidly to emotional information.

"We can't wait for our consciousness to kick in if we see someone running towards us with a knife or if we drive under rainy or foggy weather conditions and see a sign warning 'danger'.

Subliminal advertising is not permitted on television in the UK.

But Professor Lavie said her work could be applicable to marketing campaigns: "Negative words may have more of a rapid impact - "Kill Your Speed" should work better than "Slow Down".

"More controversially, a competitor's negative qualities may work on a subconscious level much more effectively than shouting about your own selling points."

The study was funded by the Wellcome Trust.

But marketing psychologist, Paul Buckley, of the Cardiff School of Management, said there was no evidence that subliminal messages work in the real world: "From a practical point of view this probablydoesn't reflect what would happen in real life.

"Certainly lots of countries around the world have legislation to ban subliminal messages being used on television and nobody has yet been able to point to any instance where a subliminal message has worked." poop

Good, bad, or indifferent...... I would have to agree that NEGATIVE SUBLIMINAL messages are "at times" MUCH MORE EASIER TO GIVE TO PEOPLE vs. POSSITIVE ONES!!!!

... & ALSO...after watching some "pick up artist" VIDEOS...... I believe I could/can ALSO agree with the possibility that some very POSTIVE AROUSAL subliminal messages that CAN ASLO be EQUALLY EFFECTIVE!!!! But that is ALL I am going to say about such!! :) strapped down

Hypnosis, NLP, and "subliminal" messages, (I believe), can ALL be USED for an INFINITE of POSSIBILITIES for both GOOD and or BAD PURPOSES depending on the PERSPECTIVE/INTENTIONS of SUCH INFINITE USES!!!

Case in point, if/when/as the SOCIETY MORE OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT "THIS" IS ALREADY in EXISTANCE with ALL MILITARY PERSONEL ... WE CAN SIMPLY DECIDE TO ASK the PUBLIC.... Do you wish to continue such, or not????? ANd or COULD there be any other such PLACES/USES that COULD VERY MUCH BENEFIT from such CONSIDERATIONS... LIKE THE PREVENTION OF ALL CRIME... vs. INCREASING THE PRISON POPULATION!!!!!

love


Here are TWO of my favorites, both with "from my perspective" some VERY POTENTIAL FUN LOVING BENEFITS:
