The Battle For People’s Attention; Riveted With Jim Davies


On today’s Book-of-the-Day show, I had the chance to interview Jim Davies, author of “Riveted.”

In his book, he says you have to understand 6 things about the human brain to win friends and influence people:

1. We are interested in stories about humans…
2. We pay particular attention to things we hope or fear are true…
3. We delight in finding patterns…
4. We are attracted to incongruity, apparent contradictions, novelty, and puzzles…
5. The nature of our bodies—the nature of our eyes and other sense organs, affects what kinds of things draw us…
6. We have certain psychological traits, many of which are evolved, that make us like and dislike, believe and disbelieve….

So when you interact with other people, make sure you utilize all 6 of these to compel, fascinate, and persuade everyone you meet.
