Cognitive Dissonance Update 1

In a prior post, and as part of my Master Persuader Series (about Trump), I predicted that Trump’s success would trigger cognitive dissonance the likes of which you have rarely seen. That is a tell for mass persuasion.

I give you two examples from today.

The Huffington Post tells us Donald Trump’s rise is over. They’re calling a top to his popularity and pre-gloating his demise.

image

At Redstate.com we learn that polls are misleading and the real leader in the GOP primary is Rubio.

image

While Reuters tells us Trump has surged to an all-time high in the polls.

As I have explained before, reality is subjective. Any one of those filters on reality could be as “true” as any other. But what model of reality does the best at predicting?

Keep watching and find out.

Update: And now we learn that modern polling is totally unreliable. Or better than ever. Read more here.

Jury Selection – Update

I am heading back to the court today for round two of jury selection. I breezed through the first round. Obviously I can’t mention the case itself, but let me tell you some things I learned.

People have immense respect for the court 

I recommend serving as a juror at least once, even if it is hard to do. It does wonders for your sense country. I found it a humbling experience to sit in a packed courtroom, shoulder to shoulder, waiting for half-an-hour while the judge was in his chambers, with no one speaking a word above a whisper. No one had asked us to be quiet. It just felt like the respectful thing to do. The power of the courtroom image, and especially the American flag, is insanely strong. 

Good job on that, America. The legal system always needs improvement, but we got the respect part right. That’s the hard part.

People are not timely

I was 30 minutes late for my 9 AM court time, but I knew it would not matter because the average person is even less organized than I am. People were still streaming in a full hour after the designated start time. And even that turned out to be way too early because the court itself had more than a one-hour delay just to get through security at the front door. 

Individuals can be awesome, but “people” are a hot mess.

Presumed Guilty

The judge does a good job of explaining that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. But the court process involves every potential juror hearing the charges without any reference to the intended defense. I will spend more than a day marinating on the visual image of the defendant and the description of the charges. That seems a huge hole to put the defendant in before a case even starts. We say the defendant is presumed innocent, but the process assumes guilt because that is the thought you live with for a day before even hearing the defense case.

A better system would involve the judge summarizing the defense to come, based on a note from the defense council. That would sound something like “The defendant is charges with X. The defense will argue that the accused is the wrong person and the evidence is weak.”

Excuses that Don’t Work

I learned yesterday that the following excuses will not get you out of jury duty:

1. I could be in contract default if I get on a case. And Dilbert will go into hiatus/reruns for perhaps a week. That is not the court’s problem.

2. I work seven days a week, often starting at 4 AM, like today, and none of that work will go away if I am on a trial. At least three businesses would slow down in my absence. But it would not be an economic hardship for me, which is what the court cares about.

3. I have a cracked tooth that my dentist tells me I need to handle in a few weeks to avoid an emergency extraction should it become suddenly painful. I already have a prescription for that eventuality because it is so likely. But I guess that is why the court has alternate jurors.

4. The judge does not care that I produce Dilbert every day and that I am (by bad coincidence) simultaneously in the pre-beta stage with two startup projects this month. The court does not care that you are busy. Everyone is busy.

5. Being a trained hypnotist and a person who writes on the topic of persuasion does not automatically eliminate you from jury duty. As one lawyer pointed out to me, they allow sales professionals to be on juries. 

I am not on a case yet, so there is still the phase where the attorneys can question me in front of the other jurors. 

Time to go write a comic or two before jury duty. Gotta go.

Update on the ISIS “Filter Fence”

Last August I described in this blog an idea for creating a safe zone for civilians that want to escape ISIS-held territory. You can see that here. The idea is based on a novel I wrote years ago, the sequel to God’s Debris, called The Religion War.

The idea is that a friendly country would create a well-defended safe zone that could be used over time to drain the civilians from ISIS territory. Once you have as many innocents out of the Caliphate as you reasonably can, which could take years, you seal the borders, cut off communication, and let nature do the rest.

There are all kinds of problems with that plan, but compared to the terrible alternatives, I think it has to be considered as an option. And now it looks like something akin to that plan is under motion. Turkey is likely to carve out a safe zone near its borders to block ISIS supply lines, create a buffer zone, and…create a haven for refugees.

No one would call it a Filter Fence because the primary objectives are cutting ISIS supply routes and defending Turkey’s borders. But the result will be a Filter Fence with a safe zone to drain civilians out of the area. 

Saudi Arabia is already building a “bad ass” wall to keep ISIS out. Turkey’s future safe zone will be the second wall. If Iran figures out a way to seal their border tight (and obviously they are working on it) you have a pretty good Filter Fence in place. Here I’m assuming Israel and Jordan have their borders under control as well. Here’s a refresher map of the region.

You hated the Filter Fence idea when I first raised it. But it looks like things are evolving in that direction. In The Religion War, the trigger for sealing the Caliphate involves terrorist drone attacks around the world. That seems inevitable.

Am I the only one who sees the Filter Fence around ISIS as 100% likely? (Barring a meteor striking Earth, or something else that big.)

In Top Tech Blog, thank goodness someone finally figured out how to run an annealing algorithm to find the lowest points, corresponding to optimal or near optimal solutions, in a virtual “energy landscape.” Also, blah, blah, something quantum computing.

And now you can 3D-print a human heart. I think that is the perfect gift for a romantic partner. (This is just a small sample of why I am not married.)

Apparently it is Samsung’s turn to say it is inventing an awesome battery technology that won’t be ready for market soon. Next!

-You look in your closet every morning and are unsure what looks good on you or what to wear in a given situation.
-People don’t respond to you in the ways you’d like them to.


If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then it’s likely time for a style upgrade.

Updating your style can include anything from a complete wardrobe and grooming overhaul to simply adding a handful of outfits to your closet. It all depends on your particular needs.

There are 3 routes you can take to achieving your upgrade:

1) DIY – Look through magazines and at blogs and earmark guys with styles who you like. Make a list of the individual elements of their looks that appeal to you specifically. Put that list in order of priority (you don’t want to try everything new all at once, or you could go down the path of fashion victim). This list may also be affected by your budget, i.e., if what you like is going to be very expensive, say a certain type of suit, that may need to go lower on the list than something less pricey like trying out some cool patterned socks. Make your way down the list incorporating one new element every few weeks. You can also check out this piece on how to define your personal style if you’re unsure even of what appeals to you.

2) Semi-Assisted – There are online courses which will teach you how to become self-sufficient with styling yourself with varying levels of individual help. You can search on google, and also check out my courses and see what resonates for you. Many of these courses (including mine) offer satisfaction guarantees and are therefore completely risk-free to try.

3) Fully-Assisted – Find an image or style consultant to help you one-on-one. Working with someone who is seasoned and knows what he or she is doing is a serious financial investment (my average client spends several thousand dollars to work with me). I would also highly recommend working with someone who specializes in consulting for men. You want someone who lives and breathes this stuff, and in my experience many image consultants who work with both men and women only work with men a small fraction of the time and therefore aren’t necessarily on top of the menswear market. Do a google search for “men’s image consultant/style consultant/personal stylist/personal shopper [where you live]” and see what comes up. You can also go to AICI.org and check their listings for accredited image consultants in your area.

You should be able to tell pretty quickly from the person’s website if they’re the right fit for you. The aesthetic of their website is a direct reflection of his or her taste, which, given the visual nature of the business, is key. If you can’t find anyone you like in your area, then look for someone who does online consultations, and you might also consider traveling. I’ve had people fly coast-to-coast to work with me, and it makes sense if you think about it: the amount of money you spend on airfare and hotel could very possibly equal the amount of money you spend on mistake shopping purchases if you choose with the wrong consultant just because he or she is located near you. If it’s in your budget, you may also consider flying the consultant in to see you. It’s certainly more convenient if you can swing it.

Finally, if one-on-one seems like it’s going to be out of your budget, then contact a local fashion school with styling programs and ask if any of their students are looking for practice clients. Many up-and-coming stylists actually are looking for people to style, and they’ll help you either for free (in exchange for images for their website and/or testimonials) or at reduced rates. I worked with a practice client when I was at FIT, and it worked out great for both of us!

Are you ready to take the plunge to upgrade your style? If so, let me know in the comments below what you’re going to do first.

Other Interesting Things Today…

I predict that healthcare expenses will someday drop to 25% of their current level thanks to advances in medical devices. (I sometimes see the new stuff in beta when they pitch for funding, and WOW.) For example, check out a new digital stethoscope that promises to make a big difference.

Next, Is passion a key to success, or just another benefit of getting there? I know I get plenty excited when things work out for me. Vivian Giang helps us sort that out.

Next, would you order take-out food more often if you could watch the delivery guy’s progress on your app, like Uber? I know I would. The comfort of knowing exactly when your food is coming is a psychological game-changer. This start-up got that part right.

3D printing is getting scary. Now you can print at the molecule level and create mechanical sensors with no moving parts. I wonder if 3D printing will be the only way people acquire household goods in the future.

Adams Law of Slow-Moving Disasters – update

Regular readers know about my law of slow-moving disasters. The idea is that society always avoids global disasters that are slow-moving because we rise to the challenge even when it seems impossible.

Peak oil didn’t happen

Y2K was a big nothing

Malthus was wrong that we would run out of food

And so on…

One of our slow-moving disaster situations is the growing resistance to antibiotics. That’s a situation that looked like it could kick humanity’s ass. But science has once again risen to the challenge, or so it seems. See this story about new breakthroughs.

Texting and Driving – update

Here's a short video of Katie Curic interviewing an entrepreneur with a device like the one I described a few posts ago to prevent teens from driving and texting.


The difference, I think, is that in my concept I required one driver to register as the designated driver in order for the car to start.

I can't tell if there is an easy way for teens to defeat the product in the video. But if the teen only has one car, and the device is in it, I can see it working well so long as it also notifies a parent whenever the device is removed from the port.

Andy Samberg Brings His Nic Cage Impression Back To ‘Weekend Update’ With Paul Rudd

Andy Samberg couldn’t return to host “Saturday Night Live” without bringing back one of his best “Weekend Update” characters: Nicolas “I’ll do any movie with free hot lunches” Cage. And hey, look! Paul Rudd showed up too, for some reason.

Actually, Rudd makes the perfect straight man for Nic Cage’s spirited rants. Colin Jost is also there to take some of Cage’s intensity, and Cage keeps up what appears to be a new tradition of calling him “Seth.”

Watch the video above to hear about Cage’s latest exploits, including his new movie that’s coming out on “NOD” (that is, “Never On Demand”).
