How we change what others think, feel, believe and do
Get the other person to do as you propose by explaining that, simply by how the world works, they will suffer negative consequences unless they do as you say.
You can help this be more effective by beforehand building your credibility as a person who knows how the world works and can pronounce with authority and wisdom on a range of topics. One of the most important aspects of doing this is simply to display confidence in your assertions.
If you get that tattoo, your school will kick you out.
If you want that woman to like you, showing off will not succeed.
I wouldn't buy that car if I were you. It is known as being unreliable.
The basic premise of this method is 'That won't work'. The world is a big and complex place, particularly in the modern, globalized society where we are no longer affected just by local affairs. National and international matters affect all of us. For example when you buy a car, you are also buying into the culture and business decisions of its manufacturer and its suppliers, who are often spread globally.
Nobody can know everything in this information-rich context, so we become dependent more on others to provide us with information about how the world works, so we can make the best decisions that we can. This is particularly important for us when we are more risk-sensitive, fearing failure and putting effort into avoiding it.
