In the filed of biology psychology, it is said that there are 3 areas of the brain that are mainly involved in our aggression and violence behavior, which are the hypothalamus, the frontal lobes, and the limbic system. Morley and Hall(2003) have investigated o how the human genes have an influences on their criminal behavior. In their research, they have found a positive relationship between criminal behaviors and genes. Brunner et al(1993) conducted an research on a Dutch family, the result showed that some of the family members from the Dutch family with tendency of aggressive behavior turned out to have mutation occurring in their monoamine oxidase A, a type of neurochemical in the brain. Therefore, we tell say that aggressive behavior is somehow related to human brain structure.
Popular celebrities are being used by marketers in their advertisements in order to have a higher demand through consumer impact. The admiration of the consumers for their idols are being used for manipulation. Example, Daniel Padilla endorse a particular brand of food consequently his fans will patronize it and the result is, this business would be successful due to higher demand. Celebrity endorsement is being used in almost all types of products. The likeability of the celebrities are being used in persuading the consumers to purchase products.
The Distortion of Fear Everyone possesses the sense of fear caused by bad experiences, desensitization, or an obsession. Fear grants more caution and attention to specific actions. Having caution from fear stimulates your survival instincts. Secondly, having an experience with fear prevents injuries and recurring mistakes. It can also fabricate irrational thoughts in your mind, on top of paranoia, just like the characters in three stories written by Edgar Allan Poe.
Through subliminal advertising, advertisers can influence consumers´ decisions by introducing new ideas or concepts to the implicit memory (Verwijmeren, Karremans, Bernritter, Stroebe, & Wigboldus, 2013). Mere exposure effect and priming effect are both psychological techniques used in subliminal advertising. One study conducted by Braun (1999) confirms that post-experience subliminal advertising can influence the memory for a product. 150 participants (66 female, 88 male) were asked to describe in their own words the taste of a new brand of orange juice, called Orange Groove. It was found that participants who were shown the positive advertisements after the tasting experience used more positive and vivid words to describe their tasting experience, whereas the participants who were not shown any advertisements gave neutral
Price discrimination can be observed in many industries it involves charging different prices to various groups of consumers for the same items of products. It can be seen and well known that the airline industry in every country has been practicing the price discrimination for many years and other industries try to practice in the same way. In the essay will examine by using economic theory to explain the definition and importance of price discrimination, the various kinds of price discrimination and more concern about the details in the third degree of price discrimination. However, This essay will answer why the local stores are operated by national supermarket chains charge the customers a higher price than outside the town and larger stores while the writer 's view and conclusion will be drawn. According to Pigou(1920),Price discrimination is generally defined as charging a sigle price for a product or service despite the fact that the costs of supply are different for different customers while Tejvan (2014) supports that the price discrimination is referred to charge different prices to different consumers for the same good and charging at the different price it depends on several criteria such as the quantity bought, time of use, age profile and when unit is bought.
To elaborate, “peer approval has been shown to be highly rewarding to the teenage brain” (Nixon 8). As an illustration, it is scientifically proven that it is a rewarding factor for the teenager, when they are given validation in some way, they tend to change themselves in order to keep that validation from the other individual. Teenagers have always been known to be vain or self-conscious and need recognition from those around them. In my own experience, there were definitely times that I’ve been given a
When we fear something, or are afraid of something, our brains release a stimulus that signals the heart rate to rise, and causes your breathing to speed up, which explains why your heart races and breathing becomes difficult when you’re frightened. When the stimulus in your brain releases it acts as a “fight or flight” mechanism, meaning that you must act upon whatever it is that you are fearful of. Fear ranges in many different scenarios. For example, seeing a large spider on the wall, is a lot less fearful than someone breaking into your home and pointing a weapon at you, but with that being said, everyone reacts to things differently. The reason we respond physically to fear is because during the time that your
As I mention above, responses to fear from different people in the novel indicate that the sense of fear, in fact, can be temporarily assuaged by irrational thoughts as well as distraction rather than rationality. However, one obvious problem of these strategies is that they can only reduce fear superficially but not essentially. To address this problem, several characters’ behaviors in the novel demonstrate that there is a more appropriate way to treat fear: accept it honestly rather than eliminating it immediately. Over the third part of the novel, a series of narratives increasingly emphasize the truth that treating fear honestly can serve as a motive which supports human survival. Instead of rejecting fear in the first place, characters
has developed an interesting theory. According to Barrett (2004), a special ability of the human mind is responsible for these experiences, namely the hypersensitive agency detection device (HADD). As he claims, we tend to see signs or agents (human beings) according to our feelings, desires and beliefs. For Barrett, the part of the brain involved in the detection of such agents is triggered whenever we want to interpret the actions of others around us in our day-to-day interactions. The operation of this area is so important that it is overloaded by making people trace human behaviours even in the most insignificant stimuli.
