5 Factors Influencing Persuasion
Reciprocation Consistency Social Proof (“Me Too”) Liking Authority Scarcity We are primed to respond in a particular way to social triggers, based on six principles: reciprocation (we feel indebted to those who give us something); consistency (once a decision is made, we strive to be consistent with it); social proof (we are more likely to deem a certain behavior correct if others behave in that way); liking (we are persuaded by those people who like us and are most like us); authority (we are trained from birth to be obethent); and scarcity (the things we can't have appear the most attractive).
