Day 174. Jedi Mind Tricks

In January 2013 on February 2, 2013 at 2:29 pm


How do you convince an unwilling audience that what you’re telling them is mind-blowingly important and will change the way they live?

Is it possible that some knowledge of Jedi mind tricks would help in this task?

As I prepare for Adelaide’s ScienceOneline Watch Party 2013, I refer you to a blog post that might help you tackle this issue. The post was written by Melanie Tannenbaum in the lead-up to the ScienceOnline2013 session Persuading the unpersuadable – communicating science to deniers, cynics and trollsWe’ll be watching this session, and digesting it for our own purposes, at our Watch Party today.

Happy reading, here it is: Persuading the Unpersuadable
