Transcript of Subliminal Messaging
Images from Shutterstock.com Pretend you're sitting in front of your T.V. A message flashes across the screen faster than your eyes can see that says "Buy McDonalds Now". You jump up from your chair and run like a zombie straight to McDonalds to buy a burger. For All Those Skeptics Subliminal Most subliminal messages are either hidden sexual images or negative words that are flashed really quickly such as "kill" or "murder". The reason that they are negative is simple. A study published in Emotion, about Professor Lavie and his colleagues, shows that when subliminal messages were flashed on a screen in front of people they were more accurate when guessing what the negative words were than the positive words. Negative Thoughts And You It's all in your mind Subliminal Messaging Subliminal Advertising A subliminal message is anything that sends you a message without your knowledge of it, it is usually picked up by your subconscious mind. Subliminal Dr Bahador Bahrami, of the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and the UCL Department of Psychology, said: "What's interesting here is that your brain does log things that you aren't even aware of and can't ever become aware of. We show that there is a brain response [...] to subliminal images that attract our attention -- without us having the impression of having seen anything." The Theory Examples of this would be, images that are flashed so fast that a person's eyes cannot see them, but their brains still detect them, audio messages that are not audible to the regular ear but are still received by the brain, and hidden messages in pictures. This is the top of a Coka Cola can.
See the woman laying there? That isn't what happens is it? The reality is that subliminal messages can put you in a certain mood and your brain can pick up on them, but they cannot completely control your mind. Why do this? Final Thought Some people believe that subliminal messages don't work at all
Some believe that subliminal messages don't exist
Others believe that subliminal messages can control your every thought
My theory is that your mind does pick up on subliminal messages, but they can't control your mind or make you do something What word comes to mind when you watch this?
