    Yes, you are right. Powerful USA corporations employed America's most influential propagandist, Edward L. Bernays, to teach them how to emotionally manipulate the American masses.

    Edward L. Bernays wrote his famous book called, Propaganda, in 1928. But what is interesting is that no American school children are taught about one of the most influential Americans of the 20th century.

    I create my own tunes indeed.
    It's nice sometimes to be a suprise.

    And speaking of emotion, we can sing in tune together, or we can sing counter-point, or we can sing in two part harmony, and silence is our only sin.

    How much do you want to pay to be able to talk with your friends? How reliable do you want the device you use for that to be? What other features do you want that device to have? What security risk are you willing to accept when you use it?

    It is one thing to be guided by emotion in the desire to communicate with your friends. Identifying and procuring a means of doing that, however, best be guided by far more than emotion, or you may end up with something that creates more problems than it solves.

    Different marketing strategies target different market segments. That is not the same thing. I doubt most people go through much of a logical analysis to identify which phone (or other consumer product) really comes closest to meeting their actual needs.

    And a product is the end goal nay purpose of a strategy..... And most people buy phones for various reasons...as with all other products.....some do, some don't....you're just citing points that most who are not even marketing professionals know...

    If people only wish to buy products for social value, then who is to say they cannot?

    Restraint is the sign of emotional intelligence.

    This may seem to be counter-intuitive, but consider, emotions are highly contagious, emotions (e-motions) lead us to actions, emotions can be volatile and fleeting, emotions can be highly destructive, emotions are powerful, so restraint is our way of understanding and directing our powerful emotions.

    So it is no coincidence that that they say restraint is the sign of power.

    I dont know if I posted in this thread but lately I would say that no species of intelligence could possibly be over rated, I dont believe that its going to be possible to correct the downward spiral into stupidity and vulgarity which has been going on for a while without great difficulty.
