You must have noticed that whenever a book is banned or there’s any movie which gets rejected due to censor board laws, people instead of losing their interest, get more interested. “Ban” this word attracts people. Why?

Similarly, most students whose parents are strict and don’t give much freedom, they are more rebellious. They lie to their parents and do things which they are attracted to. Why?

If you tell a kid not to eat excess chocolates and sweets, he will instead eat more. Why?

Well, thousands of years before when the survival was hard. Because things and food to keep people alive were scare. That’s why the brain makes an attraction to such things which are scare.

Our Brain draws in things which are hard to get or is less accessible.

For example:

Organizations know this stunt and utilize a word called ‘Restricted Edition’ item.
Not because they can’t make more such products. In any case, since LIMITED this word triggers our mind to take activities and purchase that item rapidly.

“Hurry! Offer only for today!” is also a similar example.

Now, you can use this trick in every aspect of life.

Many dating gurus give this advice- Don’t be available every time when your crush calls you. And don’t say “Yes” to every request. At least in the start. So, that you can keep that attraction game strong and not end up being in the friend zone.


2) Liking

Let’s take an example of Pandas. Billions of dollars are used for these cute pandas so that they don’t extinct. Yes, this is indeed a kind deed we are doing. But, this is also a sad reality that there are many other species which are getting extinct. Many of them are easy and important to save to maintain our environment and ecosystem but, still, there’s not enough money or resources to save or help them because they are not as cute as Pandas.

Reality is we are ready to do anything for a person or thing, whom we like the most. We sometimes do it without thinking logically.
