Today's episode is all about the pain of paying. This episode originally aired as number 59 in August of 2019. It was formed from a paper I had found and researched before I started doing interviews on the show. I had never met or really considered connecting with the author of the main paper I reference in the episode, Ofer Zellermayer (this paper was his doctoral dissertation). In addition to having an episode on this, I included a full chapter on the pain of paying in my first book, What Your Customer Wants and Can't Tell You which came out in May 2021.  Well, funny enough, in October of that same year, he reached out to me! He said that he had gone to search something related to his paper and found the podcast episode so he dropped everything to listen! He approved of it (phew!) and reached out to connect, which is such an awesome thing. I'm always amazed at the power of the podcast and all the relationships and connections that have come from it over the years. Remember what I said last week in episode 238 about reciprocity? Business is a long game, give freely and you will be amazed at how great things can be.  Anyway, you may be wondering why I chose this episode for today's refresh. For one, with the holidays upon us and just finishing up Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday here in the states, it felt like a great time to talk about the pain of paying. Buying things can feel like physical pain, and it is important to know that, but not go too over the top to compensate for it. Deals and discounts abound this time of year, and people buy differently when they are shopping for gifts. It is all interesting stuff to keep in mind as you consider your own buying this holiday, and any sales you may be running for your business. It felt like the perfect time to refresh this episode for you. Show Notes: [00:38] Today's episode is all about the pain of paying. [02:57] Buying things can feel like physical pain, and it is important to know that, but not go too over the top to compensate for it. Deals and discounts abound this time of year, and people buy differently when they are shopping for gifts. [04:21] Buying things isn't all fun and games and the process of paying for things can actually cause pain for many people.  [06:14] Everyone experiences some level of pain of payment in various scenarios and those conditions tend to be pretty universal. Context is incredibly important when it comes to the pain felt making a payment.  [07:09] Melina shares the reasons and continuums that impact the pain felt in a payment. [09:30] The brain loves a story. This story can impact the pain felt by paying. [12:28] Price is not about price. Everything that comes before the price matters much more than the price itself.  [13:57] When the pain of paying is too much, people who don't buy things that they need or want because it is too difficult to give up money are called tightwads. Those who spend too much too easily and do not feel an appropriate amount of pain before or during the spending process are called spendthrifts.  [16:58] Being a tightwad is different than being frugal. Frugality is rooted in joy when saying money.  [19:16] 60% of people are unconflicted, 25% are tightwads, and 15% are spendthrifts. Your biggest challenge is overcoming the 25% who are tightwads.  [20:08] Tightwads are most sensitive to framing adjustments so that is where you can make a difference. Tightwads can have a difficult time paying for things with cash so make it easy to pay with a credit card. [22:17] The pain was found to have less of an impact when buying what is considered virtue products than vice products. It is important to know what category your product falls into when you are looking at how to frame your message.  [23:46] One of the big issues for spendthrifts is that they do not account for or intuitively understand the opportunity cost at the moment when they are getting ready to buy or they want to buy things.  [25:52] Everyone will feel some sort of pain when paying. It is your job as the person selling to figure out what the buyer needs, what would benefit them the most, and then present it to them in a way that will have the last pain felt so they can actually enjoy spending the money.  [27:39] For your business, think about how people interpret what they are getting. If it was not their choice are there some other areas where you can help them feel like they did make a choice so there is less pain felt in the experience?   [31:26] When the pain of paying isn't felt as much it doesn't impact the experience as negatively.  [33:51] In some ways, you are making the loss and pain much more prevalent, reducing usage by consumers, and impacting the overall experience.   [35:29] The payment that is triggering pain doesn't have to be from money, it can be time as well.  [37:36] When consumption and payment are coupled together, you experience pain as you consume, it has a certain level of pain and joy associated. When you uncouple them, you experience each item separately which can increase each unless you implement them properly.  [40:03] The pain of payment can be removed when the payment is taken care of before consumption.  [42:12] “Strong buffering and hence reduced the pain of paying occurs when the consumer can directly connect the costs in terms of money with the benefits in terms of product or service. The ability to associate costs and benefits is just as important in physical pain.” [44:26] The pain of paying was potentially completely eliminated when it was given as a gift. [45:06] Melina's closing thoughts [45:26] The fact that we think about gifts differently than something we need — and that we want to spend LESS on the things we functionally NEED is so interesting.

Jessica Winne is a BCBA who came to us to talk about OBM and performance feedback, which is a topic we want to dive deeper into. Jessica received her master's degree in behavioral analysis from the University of North Texas and her thesis was on how to give corrective feedback. Towards the end of her program, she took on more of an OBM focus. A lot of people in management positions are prepared for tasks like creating structures and giving feedback, as it's easy to become more focused on the content and our to-do lists. When we're thrown into a managerial role, people start looking towards us for feedback and training, which can be confusing without the proper tools and guidance.Jessica shares why the “feedback sandwich” doesn't always work, as the learner is going to focus on the negative feedback anyway and doesn't focus on what to do differently. It's good practice to prime our learners with expectations so they can perform well and are more receptive to feedback, and the same process should be applied to our staff. Creating a learning environment versus a punishing environment is key as well as providing ample opportunity for trainees to practice so they can implement new skills. We also discuss the role emotions play in receiving feedback, how feedback can make or break a staff culture, and the importance of rapport.What's Inside:Why the “feedback sandwich” doesn't work.Why it's important to set proper expectations to set staff up for success.The role emotions play in feedback.How feedback impacts staff culture.Mentioned In This Episode:HowToABA.com/joinHow to ABA on YouTubeFind us on FacebookFollow us on InstagramJess on FacebookJess on InstagramJessWinne88@gmail.com

Today's episode is all about reciprocity, one of my very favorite concepts and approaches to life and business. For me, it is natural to give first and I enjoy being generous. I don't recall the specific names of the love languages, but nurturing relationships is something that matters a lot to me (or whatever they call it) and would definitely be one of mine.  I have seen time and time again how this comes back so much bigger when you give first and don't just do it to get stuff in return.  Life and business are a long game. It is so much better to be giving and generous up front and know that things will work out and take care of you eventually. This is also why I had last week's refreshed episode about the brainy benefits of gratitude and why I always talk about reciprocity around the holidays and why this episode, which originally aired as number 23 of the podcast, was an obvious choice for me to refresh for you today. This is also leading into Friday's brand new episode which will look at nonprofits and how generosity and giving and behavioral economics are the same and different when we step outside the typical customer/company relationship and into charitable giving. Now…let's dig in on reciprocity (which is much more than just free gifts). Show Notes: [00:39] Today's episode is all about reciprocity, one of my very favorite concepts and approaches to life and business. [01:21] Life and business are a long game. It is so much better to be giving and generous up front and know that things will work out and take care of you eventually. [02:49] Reciprocity is what happens when someone gives you something (whether you want it or not, whether you value it or not) and you feel obligated to give them something in return.  [04:03] Melina shares one of her favorite examples of reciprocity from The Big Bang Theory.   [05:44] Our brains tend to overvalue the gifts we are given and compensate in a way that exceeds the value of the original gift.  [08:42] The gift of kindness and a little effort goes a long way.  [09:20] Reciprocity presents itself in many ways but there are three categories: the free gift, the small ask on the path to something bigger, and the big ask to get something more realistic.   [09:44] The free gift is a little something that is given freely and helps make you a little more endearing in the eyes of the recipient.   [12:37] Another way to give out free gifts is with samples.   [15:17] Reciprocity and free gifts are often used when asking for donations. [17:44] Other examples of free gifts are sales or discounts.   [19:05] Discounts will often cost you more so use them sparingly and with a lot of strategy.  [22:16] Be of service to other people; reciprocity is a key reason why.    [22:55] The next category of reciprocity is a small ask to get something bigger.   [25:56] What is the gift you can give that can encourage businesses to donate later? What you want to do is ask for them to perform a small and simple task they are unlikely to refuse. Then when you come back for a donation they are more likely to say yes.  [28:47] Getting someone to say yes once to something small increases the likelihood that they will say yes again.   [30:06] In the last category you start with a big, ridiculous, or even unreasonable ask to make the thing you actually want to ask for seem more reasonable and appealing by comparison.  [30:57] Melina shares about a study on a university campus asking for volunteers.  [34:38] If you are going to use the big-then-small tactic it should be the same person both times and you should do them really close together. One obvious place to use this tactic is in negotiations of any kind.  [36:06] Melina shares a story about setting rates and pricing.  [39:02] Melina's closing thoughts Thanks for listening.

In today's conversation, I am joined by Dr. Douglas Kenrick and David Lundberg-Kenrick to talk about their new book, Solving Modern Problems with a Stone-Age Brain. As you will hear about in the episode, they are a father and son team with very different backgrounds, so it is incredibly interesting to see how they came together to write this really incredibly interesting book. I became acquainted with Doug and Dave through Bob Cialdini, who emailed me saying that this team from ASU had a new book out that he found to be fascinating and thought I would too. That was, of course, enough endorsement for me, and after some due diligence, I quickly confirmed that this was a book that was a great fit for the podcast. Doug and Dave have stories of a young Bob Cialdini as well as "Danny Kahneman" in their book as they share examples of how our brains have adapted (or not) while the world around us has changed dramatically and how that matters to all of us in life, and of course in business. You don't want to miss this!  Show Notes: [00:46] In today's conversation, I am joined by Dr. Douglas Kenrick and David Lundberg-Kenrick to talk about their new book, Solving Modern Problems with a Stone-Age Brain.  [03:06] Dave and Doug share their backgrounds and how they found themselves writing a book together. Dave's background is in film production. [04:20] Doug is a social psychologist.  [05:59] Social motives are actually primary. We have basic needs like hunger and thirst and as we get a little older we start to become concerned with protecting ourselves.  [07:58] Organisms are designed to reproduce. So human beings go through the same basic phases as other animals. You develop your body, develop your social relationships, and then you find mates.  [10:25] The seven motives are basic resources (food and shelter), self-protection, affiliations or friendship, gaining status, finding and choosing a mate, maintaining romantic relationships, and kin care.  [12:04] There are some places in which our ancestral motives serve us well and there are others in which they serve us really badly.  [14:20] Melina recommends Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond and  Evolutionary Ideas by Sam Tatam (previous guest on The Brainy Business).  [16:06] Stimulus control is incredibly important and you can control your environment to support what you want to do.  [18:00] You should never strive for perfection because you are always going to feel disappointed. It is really hard for us to balance all seven motives.  [21:11] We can only prioritize 1-2 of the motives at any given time.  [23:34] We can take small steps and do a little in each of these categories and when we do them they tend to make us feel healthier.  [25:25] Their book-writing process was to go for a walk in the morning and talk about the ideas they were going to write that day. After working and writing alone during the day when they took an evening walk they almost always came up with solutions to the problems they had found in the morning.  [28:05] They really enjoyed the process and learned a lot.  [29:58] Figuring out ways to present things in a way that is ethical is really important too.  [32:22] There is something really interesting about ideas that come from dialogue.  [33:11] What about applying this in business? Start by asking how your business can fill the seven fundamental motives for your customers and employees. [35:07] The thing you might think your brand is about might not actually be the only way to convey your message. Think about what your brand conveys and what you really want it to convey.  [37:48] You can ask yourself, “How can this job satisfy my motives?” You will do better on the job if you walk in and regularly consider, “How can I satisfy the motives of my co-workers and bosses?”  [39:38] Public compliments are one of the best things leaders and coworkers can do and it is a really effective thing.  [40:59] Learning people's names is one of the classic ways to give a little bit of affiliation and status.  [43:45] Work-life balance is a big thing for both finding, keeping a mate, and parenting.  [45:04] Stick to lifting people up and always giving them more status. Give them more autonomy and time also.  [48:40] Human beings are designed to not be selfish, but to help other people. The best thing you can do for yourself is to help others.  [50:49] Melina shares her closing thoughts.  [51:24] Often, a simple reframing of your message can make all the difference in the world, and understanding the things that will motivate our stone-age minds to act -- even in this modern world -- is so, so useful in finding messaging that sticks.

Today's episode is all about the brainy benefits of gratitude. At the end of the year, I always like to do episodes about reciprocity, gratefulness, happiness, and planning…and this year is no different. One thing that is new this year, is that we have two episodes a week including our Tuesday refreshes so this episode from November 2019 on the brainy benefits of gratitude gets another day in the sun. I really enjoy this episode as it looks at the difference between happiness and gratitude and how they might not work the way we think they should (which you will of course learn all about in the episode today).  Here's something to think about as we start the episode: Do you have to get what you want to be happy? Is synthesized (or manufactured) happiness the same as natural happiness? What is best for your overall psyche and those around you? Keep that in mind as you listen, and share your thoughts with me on social media! Show Notes: [00:39] Today's episode is all about the brainy benefits of gratitude. [01:55] Gratefulness and reciprocity have an important thing in common, a tie that can bond them together which is a feeling of happiness and joy. Doing things for others or giving things away can make you feel happier.  [04:09] Our brains systematically misjudge what will make us happy.  [05:36] Dan Gilbert tells about how people don't know what will make them happy. One of the most important things the human brain does is allow to synthesize the future, imagine what is to come, and predict how we should act for the best possible outcome.  [06:29] Natural happiness is a product of getting exactly what you want.  [06:41] Synthetic happiness is what we get when we don't get what we wanted. Synthetic happiness, not getting what you want but still being happy about where you are is just as enduring and every bit as real to the brain as if you got exactly what you wanted or thought you wanted.  [09:36] A fascinating example using Monet paintings to show how our preferences change. You can be grateful, appreciate things, and have them make you happier even if you don't remember going through the process before.  [10:09] We think we will be happier if we have more options or choices but there is such a thing as too much choice. Freedom to choose is the opposite of happiness.  [11:20] Those who were stuck and had no room for deliberation after the fact were much happier than those that had the option to ruminate. Those who were stuck had no reason to ruminate and counterfactualize and were considerably happier. [13:00] Not getting what you want can make you just as happy or happier than if you had gotten what you set out for. Synthesized happiness is the same as natural happiness. Lots of choices and opportunities to ruminate are a recipe for unhappiness.  [14:23] Gratefulness goes first.  [15:07] The benefits of gratitude filtering can impact all areas of your life in a positive way. When you are filtering for gratitude you are resetting the way your subconscious is looking at the world around you.  [16:50] It is important to write gratitude by hand when you can. Writing things by hand has tons of benefits.  [17:41] One reason writing by hand does all these things is because it forces you to slow down and be thoughtful. Your brain pays more attention to things you write down.  [18:38] Gratitude can also improve relationships. Sharing the good makes it easier to share the bad allowing for growth and progress together.  [20:08] It is time to filter for gratitude and start writing what you are grateful for.

Work Smart Hypnosis | Hypnosis Training and Outstanding Business Success

Have you ever wondered why infomercials still exist, even when they're only seen by a very small number of viewers? How can it be worthwhile for companies to invest so much time, money, and resources into producing an infomercial only to have it air during the extremely late or early morning hours when most people are still sleeping?  Even in the age of on-demand movies and despite the small viewership - infomercials are still a widely used marketing strategy because of their effectiveness. And their effectiveness is largely due to the concept of “Show and Tell” – showing customers what they'll get and selling the product to the customer… even before the presenter asks for the sale. This week, I explore how hypnosis professionals can offer hypnotic demos to get new clients. I explain how using demos can help you break a potential client's prior expectations about hypnosis while simultaneously introducing new ones. I explain why the key to successfully turning your audience into paying clients is to get them to interact with you during your presentation. I also share strategies you can use to amplify the environment and location of your presentation. Join us at our next certification course LIVE and ONLINE at: https://worksmarthypnosislive.com/  “The more you have them interacting during the presentation, the more you have them interacting after the presentation.” - Jason Linett ●     Using demos as a way to break prior expectations and introduce new ones●     The impact of using a lectern at a free hypnosis demo●     Getting the crowd to interact with you during the presentation●     Leaning on your past success and the success of your profession●     Amplifying the environment and location of your presentation●     How to effectively use PowerPoint slides in your hypnotic demo Resources Mentioned: ●     Podcast Episode: Session #270 - Priming with Hypnotic Convincers ●     ICBCH Train-the-Trainer Program●     Podcast Episode: Session #1 - The All-Positive Pre-Talk●     Google Scholar●     The Velvet Rope Strategy Join our next online certification course… wherever you are in the world!●     https://WorkSmartHypnosisLIVE.com/  Get an all-access pass to Jason's digital library to help you grow your hypnosis business: ●     https://www.hypnoticbusinesssystems.com/ Get instant access to Jason Linett's entire hypnotherapeutic training library:●     https://www.hypnoticworkers.com/ If you enjoyed today's episode, please send us your valuable feedback! ●     https://www.worksmarthypnosis.com/itunes ●     https://www.facebook.com/worksmarthypnosis/ Join the new WORK SMART HYPNOSIS COMMUNITY on Facebook!●     https://www.facebook.com/groups/worksmarthypnosis/  Want to work with Jason?

The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics

In today's conversation, I am joined by Leigh Caldwell, the founding partner of Irrational Agency. He is a behavioral economist and pricing expert with more than 10 years of experience in applying behavioral science commercially. He is the creator of the System 3 Methodology (which we will talk about a lot in today's episode) as well as being the author of The Psychology of Price, and a frequent speaker at academic and industry conferences. That is actually how Leigh and I met in person -- while we were both speaking at IIEX Europe in Amsterdam this past summer. We had been connected on LinkedIn prior to that, and it was so great to chat in person a bit, and then follow up after for a virtual coffee, which of course led to this episode. My conversations with Leigh really got me thinking about what I believe, what I'm familiar with, and what it might mean to open up and consider how...things might not be exactly as they seem. So, what I encourage you to do as you listen to today's episode, especially if you have been familiar with behavioral economics and behavioral science for a long time, is to be open to this idea. Be open to something that goes against what you believe to be true and wonder, "What might that look like?" I think if you allow it to be, this is one of those ideas and episodes that will really stick with you for a long time -- and I love that! Show Notes: [00:39] In today's conversation, I am joined by Leigh Caldwell, the founding partner of Irrational Agency.  [03:02] Leigh shares his background and more about who he is. He describes himself as a mathematician above anything else.  [04:29] He realized there was something in the world about how people were buying and it wasn't logical or rational.   [06:20] There were two directions he went after learning about behavioral science. One was pricing because he felt there was a gap in the market with helping businesses set their pricing.   [08:15] Second was that world of what is going on inside the head and what our imagination is made of. This really fascinated him.  [09:27] When it comes to pricing, first understand the value that you are providing as perceived by the customers. Then look at the alternative routes to solve the same problem and how much those cost.  [11:43] What is it worth to the customer to solve this problem and how can you capture as much as possible of that value?   [14:49] You are not your ideal client or customer, so how much you would pay for the thing is not how much the person who needs your services would pay. You often undervalue it.  [16:26] One thing that attracted Leigh to economics was the idea of being able to use math to model human behavior.  [19:12] When you are using a linear path to predict something complex, you are going to end up in a difficult spot.   [21:44] We have to be building, growing, and changing as the field of behavioral science is moving forward.   [24:19] System 1 thinking is fast, automatic, and unconscious - things that really are a gut reaction. System 2, the deliberate mind, is meant to be logical and calculating.  [25:05] There is another kind of thinking that is not captured by either one, and that is the thinking we typically do when we are daydreaming or watching a movie. It is the activity of imagination.   [27:12] Leigh calls this other type of thinking System 3.    [29:25] Melina reads the story from a paper he wrote to help us better understand System 3. In the story, what we are experiencing doesn't have the logic of System 2 and it is not a learned reaction in System 1.  [31:34] We as humans can generate imaginary emotions and imaginary sensory feelings.   [34:20] If you want to understand people's real experiences, you have to allow them to bring in all of the accidental influences that occur in real life and the different places that their minds can wander to.  [36:02] There can be real value in how the imaginative process can be useful to brands.  [38:11] Choices are important, but narratives are just as important.   [40:48] By uncovering the existing connections in people's heads we can show brands how to tap into those stories and play their own part in that customer's narrative.  [43:07] By uncovering how people really perceived their client's product they were able to help them tell the right story in their marketing that was consistent with the story that the people already had and wanted.  [44:45] You have to understand who you are talking to and what it is you want them to do.  [47:41] People need to find ways and the right stories to help them through this challenging period, but brands also need to be able to find how they can play a part in customers' stories even in these challenging times.  [48:35] Melina shares her closing thoughts. [49:30] I don't know if there is a System 3 for sure, and what the field might adapt to in the coming years, but it is so cool to realize that we are on the forefront of something amazing.

The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics

Today's episode is all about prefactual thinking. Prefactual thinking is closely related to counterfactual thinking, which was episode 68 of the podcast, and this episode originally aired as number 71. In its simplest form, counterfactual thinking is our “what ifs” and “if onlys” where we look back and wonder what might have been if only something had been different. This can be from outside factors or things within ourselves that might have changed an outcome, and our brains are really good at coming up with idealized scenarios where things would have been amazing and perfect “if only” this one thing had been different.  Prefactual thinking is when we do something very similar but are looking into the future. Why did I hand pick this episode for you to listen to and reflect upon today? This coming Friday, my guest in episode 233 is Leigh Caldwell. He will talk about why he believes there is actually a System 3. You've heard me talk about System 1 and 2 (or rather, the subconscious and conscious processing of the brain...our elephant and rider) and Leigh says there is something else in there that should be its own category altogether. It has to do with imagining and thinking into the future, so it felt like a good idea for you to have a nice refresher on prefactual thinking today so you are all set and ready to be thinking about this possible System 3 question on Friday. So, as you listen today, think about the possibilities and what might come, and be ready to reflect on this when you tune in for episode 233. (And, if you haven't already, now is a great time to subscribe to the podcast to be sure you don't miss it!) Show Notes: [00:38] Today's episode is all about prefactual thinking. Prefactual thinking is closely related to counterfactual thinking. [01:25] While counterfactual thinking is looking back at how things in the past might have been different “if only”...prefactual does something similar, but looking into the future. [03:39] Goals are so important. As the year is ending you are looking back at what you did, and what you could have done, and also looking forward to what you can do in the future.   [04:33] Counterfactuals are looking back at something that has already happened and essentially undoing it in some way in your mind. Prefactuals are when you look to the future and think about what could be.   [05:54] When you think about what could happen or how you might succeed in the future, studies show you can actually have great benefits in all sorts of tasks.    [07:06] Your brain is driven by its desire to get these chemicals and there are different rewards with each.  [08:15] The treat for the brain is in the build-up, the prefactual, so it wants to think through scenarios over and over and it isn't always wired to do this in a positive way unless you put in some interventions.    [09:26] Melina shares a real-world email example.  [12:05] There are countless examples because our brains dwell on stuff all the time – they are wired for it. And they don't happen in isolation; it is easy to jump from counterfactual to prefactual and back again.  [13:18] To use prefactuals for positive behavior change you want to look at the “if / then” and future outcome action ties.   [14:04] The specifics give your brain something to process and remember in the future.  [16:12] After she received an email letting her know about the error, Melina was able to take some time to think about what could happen (prefactual) and because she didn't dwell too much on what might have been (counterfactual) she could take steps to make it better.   [17:38] One key to using counterfactuals and prefactuals for your benefit is to look for the learning opportunity. [20:56] Knowing the true impact is really important before you send anything out. Your brain is going to blow anything out of proportion with the tools it has in its arsenal.  [22:25] Breathe, assess, question, action, and reflection.  [23:19] Studies have found that people perform better on a task after doing prefactual thinking even if they have no prior experience. This is why role playing and visualization techniques are so important.  [25:34] Moving out of the negative counterfactuals and prefactuals into the positive space is such a useful and versatile skill for everyone.   [26:35] There is always something to learn and always a way through to the other side. You will get there faster and easier if you structure your counterfactuals and prefactuals to the positive.   [26:49] Melina's closing thoughts Thanks for listening.

The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics

Today I am very excited to have Dr. Matt Johnson back on the show to talk about Branding That Means Business, a new book he has co-authored with Dr. Tessa Misiaszek (who will be on the show in a few weeks talking about her background and the aspects she brings to this fascinating project). Matt was on the show in 2021 talking about his other book, Blindsight (which he co-authored with Prince Guhman, who was also on the show last year.) Matt is a professor, researcher, and writer, who received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology/Neuroscience from Princeton University in 2013. His focus now is on bridging the gap between science and business; to accomplish this, he works across several fields including behavioral economics, consumer neuroscience, and experiential marketing. A contributor to major news outlets including Forbes, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, and VICE, and a writer for Psychology Today, he regularly provides expert opinion and thought leadership on a range of topics related to the human side of business. He advises both start-ups and large brands and has served as an expert-in-residence to Nike's Innovation Team in Portland, Oregon. Matt is so much fun and a wealth of fascinating information. We are going to talk about so many awesome things today so you don't want to miss it.  Show Notes: [00:42] Today I am very excited to have Dr. Matt Johnson back on the show to talk about Branding That Means Business, a new book he has co-authored with Dr. Tessa Misiaszek. [02:48] Melina and Matt share the similarities in their lives.  [04:08] Matt shares his background and how he found himself in the world of neuro and behavioral science.  [05:53] His second book, Branding That Means Business is written for the business practitioner on how to build brands and how companies can create enduring brands with consumers and markets.  [08:49] One of his goals when writing a book is to write for as broad of an audience as possible within popular science, but also for very niche behavioral science readers.  [11:11] Every experience you have consuming content is potentially going to be featured in some sort of written word.  [12:22] Twitter can be an amazing resource. Incredible business minds and academics are sharing on Twitter.    [15:15] The rule of the brand is to create trust. Trust is an absolute game changer when it comes to consumer dynamics.      [17:55] When information or an advertising claim comes from a brand you trust it is much more System 1 oriented and it changes the decision-making process to be much easier and free-flowing.  [19:59] Building a brand is like building a house. The goal isn't to just build the house and structure, but ultimately to build a home that creates a positive emotional experience and a sense of warmth and belonging.   [22:39] Interactions within the brain and how you feel about it — those associations are so key.  [23:16] A brand is an element of the company. It is a tool of the company that adds unique value above and beyond the products themselves and it helps the company differentiate itself from industry competitors.   [26:36] We need to know what our brand associations are so we can change them or embrace them.   [27:46] How the brand is sculpted at the level of the brain and the consumer and how that is aggregated over the entire market can be very different.    [30:36] After research, KitKat completely changed its marketing in Japan and it had a huge impact.  [31:50] So often companies and people end up really making things so much harder for us than they have to be. If you let go and have the current take you then you can get somewhere more meaningful.  [34:28] Our job as the brand manager is not to be the guardians of the brand image but as the caretaker of it.  [36:20] Micro and nano influencers have smaller audiences, but because they are very engaged followers that can be very effective.  [38:14] Many people are willing to partner with brands that mean something to them.   [40:26] Among younger consumers there is a “learned allergy” to top-down advertising. This is one of the reasons why TikTok has been so huge with product advertising.  [43:22] Organic marketing and integrated content are becoming more and more attractive.   [46:14] If it is perceived to be a small brand the expectations are that it is going to be a brand that you really know, you could directly interact with it, and you could possibly co-create with the brand. This differs from big brands who should adopt this different strategy.  [47:59] Differentiation and consumer perception are important. It really matters to consider consumer perceptions in terms of those expectations.   [50:31] Melina shares her closing thoughts.  [52:20] Knowing what is going on in the world and finding how you can relate your brand to the current conversation is so key to using branding effectively in your business.

The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics

Today's episode is all about branding — and specifically, my insights for how to incorporate brain science and behavioral economics insights so you can have a brainy brand that resonates better with your potential customers, clients, members, etc., and is one of those coveted “favorite brands” in the mind of your consumer.  When your brand is thinking about becoming a beloved “favorite” it is important to consider the experience people have with you. Becoming a favorite is a lot like dating and marriage. On a first date, you are looking for all sorts of data to help categorize someone as a hero or a zero — you want to be able to cut your losses before you invest too much. It's the same with brands. It is important to not make mistakes. You especially want to be on your best behavior early on in the customer relationship to build up that “favorite” status. The tips in this episode will help you leverage behavioral economics to do just that (including what your brand needs to learn from your favorite actors). Now is a great time to be thinking about your brand and goals for the next year. What changes can your brand make and where is it worth the investment in becoming a more brainy and beloved brand? Keep that in mind as you listen today. Show Notes: [00:41] Today's episode is all about branding — and specifically, on my insights for how to incorporate brain science and behavioral economics insights so you can have a brainy brand that resonates better with your potential customers, clients, members, etc., and is one of those coveted “favorite brands” in the mind of your consumer. [01:26] When your brand is thinking about becoming a beloved “favorite” it is important to think about the experience people have with you, and becoming a favorite is a lot like dating and marriage. [04:14] A brand can take a generic item and turn it into something more.  [05:37] Marketing and branding are not the same things. Marketing is all the one-off things that you do to get your name out there.  [07:45] A brainy brand knows what it is trying to achieve and builds quantitative and qualitative research projects to test, learn, and grow.  [08:26] Truly great marketers (like great scientists) are great questioners. [10:55] Our brain makes associations whether we ask it to or not.  [12:35] Priming is really related if you want to make sure you have a brainy brand. You want to make sure you are associating your brand properly with the right things.  [15:01] It is important to be strategic and thoughtful about what it is you are doing for your company.   [16:51] You need to use the associations of the brain to make it as easy as possible on the customer. Be strategic. Think about how you can make it easy, as well as where they might make an error so you can help them avoid missteps and make the right choice.  [18:31] Above all, a brainy brand knows that everything matters.   [19:47] Brands have personalities just like people and for good reasons. Known personalities create expectations in our brains.   [21:09] Smart brands know the work is never done.   [24:04] Method acting is a lot like business branding because they both require a lot of preparation and understanding of things that may never be brought up. [25:16] Brainy brands know everything about who their brand is as if it were a person or a character.  [26:31] The other important thing to remember if you want a brainy brand is that perception is reality.   [27:28] Brainy brands need to have everyone on board rowing the boat in the right direction.   [28:35] Behavioral economics and other studies of the brain look into why people do the things they do and how to use insight to predict what they might do in the future.   [29:14] Melina's closing thoughts Thanks for listening.

Today's episode is a very special one, it is our first-ever edition from the vault. What does that mean? Well, for one thing, we now have TWO episodes of The Brainy Business coming to you each week, starting with this one. It is an episode from the back catalog that I think is super relevant and timely for you right now, so it got a little refresh.  Why this one and why today? Firstly, it is because change is ever-present in our lives and businesses, and in this age of The Great Resignation, quiet quitting, returning to work, hybrid offices and so much more. Managing and leading through change is something everyone seems to be talking about these days, so this episode is one I think will help a lot of people. As you will hear in this episode, change is “not about the cookie” it is more about the way a change is presented than anything else, so you have the power to influence how others react to whatever information you are presenting.  Remember change is in the micro-moments, so it doesn't have to be anything big. Look for those small tweaks that could make a huge difference.  Show Notes: [00:38] Today's episode is a very special one. It is our first-ever Tuesday episode (double the brainy!!) and our first edition from the vault.  [02:14] Change is in the micro-moments, so it doesn't have to be anything big. Look for those small tweaks that could make a huge difference. [03:41] Melina shares the cookie story. I want you to imagine that we are walking down the street... [05:56] It's not about the cookie, the change, or the price. It is about the way the information is presented.  [08:28] Change management is leading through change.   [09:02] Change and getting people to change is all about selling them on your perspective and getting them to buy in and commit even when money is not being exchanged.  [12:02] Our subconscious brain is like a small child. We would all like to think we have grown past this point, but much of our decision-making is still done on this level.  [14:25] Consider the ripples. One small decision or word on an advertising campaign or a change conversation can have a different impact on different people and it is based on their perspectives.  [16:30] The overall brand and campaign message needs to be consistent. You also need to identify what an individual in each of these groups is supposed to do when they see the message and what they need to hear to get them to take the next step.   [18:46] We often run a message for consistency's sake across everything without thinking about what those people need to hear, where they are coming from, and what matters to them. We think about the group as a whole instead of considering the individuals and what they need in that moment to take the best course of action.  [20:41] When confronted with change our brains are trained to revert to a place of fear and they are very good at dwelling on small items.  [21:56] The endowment effect: our brains favor things they own over other things.  [23:55] Studies show it takes double the joy felt by a gain to outweigh the pain felt by a loss.  [26:07] When given the choice people tend to go with the status quo and favor it very heavily…especially when there are many options presented.  [28:45] Change management conversations are more likely to have the brain flagged and on high alert.  [31:32] Be thoughtful of the way the meeting or discussion is framed or called together. If you are delivering bad news or presenting a change you want them to buy in on, you don't want to oversell the meeting.  [33:58] You want to make sure the document is outlined in a way that helps them come to the best conclusion themselves so their brain takes ownership of the change you are going to propose to them.  [34:46] When you are proposing a big change you need to do your homework. When the stakes are high your prep work needs to be significant as well. [37:09] Putting in the groundwork allows you to have advocates. Having advocates is so key in branding.  [38:57] When people are on edge and likely to get a fight or flight response, triggering on scarcity could work against you if not done properly.  [42:49] Framing is everything when it comes to change management. It isn't what you say, it is how you say it.  [43:49] You need to know why you want them to take the step, why it matters, and get them invested in the proposed outcome. [46:20] Framing the benefits and talking about the good stuff instead of helping them dwell on the bad is how you get changes to move forward.  [47:49] You want them to feel comfortable coming back to you with questions. You are allies in this.  [49:24] What tiny moments of change do you see around you for your next initiative in the way you will be presenting change? Thanks for listening.

Many of you have heard "warm up" before you do anything physical. Priming involves a more in depth process than just getting your blood flowing. It involves getting your central nervous system (CNS) activated to recruit maximum muscle fiber. Also it involves full-range of motion in your chosen area of movement. Its important because many people operate in partial-ranges of motion. Which in turn creates disfunction and PAIN issues. My example is weight lifting in this episode. BUT you can prime before any physical activity. If you're about to go running... well then logically bodyweight lunges as deep as possible would get all leg muscles firing, as well as warm you up, and get the CNS firing. Plus it stretches the muscles involved in running. Why & how many you should do are all discussed during this episode. Every physical movement has a logical priming movement that can help you get the CNS, blood flow, flexibility, & more ready for action as well as possibly reversing some issues with pain because of muscular imbalances.

Today we are digging in on negativity bias, which is featured in chapter 9 of my book, What Your Employees Need and Can't Tell You. I also talked about this when Adam Hansen was on the show back in episode 176 and have planned to give it a dedicated episode for a long time, yet it has continued to hang out waiting for its moment in the sunshine – until today! It's funny, because I think it really says something about my personality that optimism bias was episode 34 and we aren't getting to negativity bias until nearly 200 weeks later. I'm ok with that, and, I'm so glad that this is finally becoming an episode because it really is a fascinating concept and super important for everyone in life and business. As with all the biases and heuristics you hear about on this show, I'm confident this will be one of those things that really changes your whole life and perspective once you realize it is there and impacting you. It's shocking how rampant this can be running in our lives and businesses. Today we will cover the four aspects of negativity bias (plus a “bonus” one) as well as ways to think about this in your life and work. Show Notes: [00:41] Today we are digging in on negativity bias, which is featured in chapter 9 of my book, What Your Employees Need and Can't Tell You. [03:13] In its most basic form, negativity bias is our tendency to put more emphasis on negative information than positive. [03:57] Negativity bias, putting more weight on the bad than the good. Being on high alert and paying attention to potential threats was key for our survival. This is a good thing and it still serves us well a lot in our life. Sometimes, the negativity bias goes a bit far and can result in phobias or other avoidances that don't serve us well. [06:20] This is one aspect of negativity bias, where we put way, way, way more weight on the negative input than the positive. Our being a herding species is part of this as well. Being on the outskirts with the herd was something else that greatly threatened our survival back in the day. [06:53] In today's world, this overweighting of negatives can be problematic and cause a real negative spiral that keeps you stuck; focused on the bad in a way that causes you to ignore all the good stuff. You can choose to focus on the good stuff and, while still learning from the bad, don't let it have so much more impact on you than the good. [07:46] There are four aspects of negativity bias (as outlined in the original paper). The first is negative potency. It says that even if the two incidents were of the same type and size, they won't necessarily be felt or remembered the same way. We tend to have longer memories of these negative items than the positive ones and feel them more strongly when they occur. [08:09] The second aspect is of steeper negative gradients. This says that as we get closer to a negative event, its felt more and more – and at an intensity that is more than a positive event. [10:10] Negativity bias is definitely related to loss aversion and they are similar (but not the same). Negativity bias is when people pay more attention to bad news than good news. Loss aversion is when people are more worried about losing something they have than getting something new. [10:42] Now, we move on to negativity dominance. This was sort of covered in the negative potency section, but it is more about how when there is an event, the negative events will make it so our whole impression skews toward the negative. [11:35] It is important to think about the overall experience people are having with you. Even one negative element can drag an otherwise good thing down. [14:22] Knowing that people are going to have this negativity bias – both those presenting the change and those receiving it – is important as you consider how you introduce anything to anyone. [16:42] Our final aspect is negative differentiation, which is about the effort it takes to process an event. The negative stuff is more difficult to process, so it uses up more energy and cognitive resources. That makes us remember it more and for longer. [18:54] Knowing that the negativity bias exists and taking a step back to get out of your own way is important as you look at your own behaviors and actions. [19:54] We are also biased to give people like us the benefit of the doubt and not give that to people who are outside our circle of empathy. [22:02] Contagion is such an important piece and it has one of my all-time favorite examples and lines because it is very memorable and you instantly get the problem and how this can be applied in other areas. “A single cockroach can ruin a bowl of cherries, but an individual cherry will do nothing for a bowl of cockroaches.” [23:53] When you think of reputation, that one negative can contaminate everything else and color your entire perspective of them and everything they touch. [24:35] It is important to realize when negativity bias, and specifically contagion, could be coloring a lot more than it should. [26:44] As we wrap up today's episode, I want you to think about the negativity bias and how it is impacting you in your life and at work. [28:30] Learn from the negatives and let them sink in, but don't let them control you and take over everything. [30:25] Make sure to clear out the cockroaches before you work on finding better cherries.  [32:02] Because of the negativity bias, we really love avoiding bad things. If we avoid all the things that have risks associated with them, we will not grow and change, and for both people and companies, that is a problem. [33:58] Pointing out flaws in ideas isn't always saving you from a mistake. It might be saving you from the thing that could change everything for the better if you gave it a chance.

“The primary source of unconscious priming…is your conscious experience.” Our consciousness is where we bring everything together, where we integrate and form a rich integration of our experience. This result is that this experience gets spread out to all the processes of the mind which is pivotal to how priming, an unconscious effect, actually works. John Bargh is a researcher and professor at Yale University and is probably the leading researcher on behavioral priming and has been studying this topic for almost 40 years. Not only that but he is a long term friend of Behavioral Grooves Podcast. In this episode with John, we explore with him both the past and future of priming as well as some of the controversies surrounding it.  “The more important the goal, the more primable it is”   Topics (4:36) Welcome and speed round questions. (7:50) Why priming gets a bad rap. (13:01) What exactly is a prime? (16:17) Where does future research in priming need to go? (19:46) How does priming differ from expectation theory and the placebo effect? (22:33) How is framing not priming? (24:07) What is the summation of experience? (32:02) The stupid reason John went into social psychology. (40:51) What the meta analysis studies on priming have found. (45:50) Science communication: how to tell the good science from the bad.

Priming studies have had some negative press over the past ten years - some of it justified, some of it not. In this groove track, Kurt and Tim examine a 2018 study done by Alexander Stajkovic, Kayla Sergent, Gary Latham, and Suzanne Peterson called “Prime and Performance: Can a CEO Motivate Employees Without Their Awareness?”  This field study, with real-world implications, demonstrated that the choice of words had an impact on company performance. The impact was not just statistically significant, but it had real-world significance as well. The researchers replaced 12 words in a company President's e-mail message to his employees. The impact that those 12 words had on performance was wild.   Kurt and Tim examine how the study was set up, the type of priming used, how performance was measured, and explore some of the key findings. We try to peel back the reasons why the interventions worked as it did, and discuss both the positive implications of this study, as well as things we should be wary of.   Listen now or find out more about this paper in our blog post.

Shankar Vedantam is the host of the wildly popular podcast, Hidden Brain and esteemed author of the book Useful Delusions: The Power and Paradox of the Self-Deceiving Brain. We initially interviewed Shankar in mid 2021 but want to highlight this discussion for you again as it is one we still discuss in more recent episodes. Before reading Shankar's book and interviewing him for this podcast we were, as Shankar describes himself, card-carrying rationalists. We were firmly in the camp of believing rational, scientific findings and believing that lies and deception are harmful to ourselves and to our communities. However, Shankar walks us through a compelling argument, that paradoxically, self-deception actually plays a pivotal role in our happiness and well-being. In our discussion with Shankar we cover: (6:38) Speed round questions. (11:04) The difference between self delusions being useful and being harmful. (16:23) How nations are a delusional construct. (23:00) Awareness of self-delusions and how daily gratitudes can shift our perspective of the world.  (25:56) Shankar's personal story of delusional thinking.  (29:58) The role emotions play in our mood and delusions. (35:23) How avoidance of delusional thinking is a sign of privilege. (37:30) Why our perceptions play an important role in understanding delusions.
