Ads Don't Work That Way

Not investing related, but a deep and detailed look from another angle of how ads work on people by exploring the theory of emotional inception and cultural imprinting in advertisement.

  • Emotional inception: ads implanting ideas in your mind to make you feel something when you see a product/service, compelling them to buy.
  • Cultural imprinting:more social in nature. When you see an ad that you think, it imparts a positive feeling or association. You buy that product so you'd get the same positive association from the people around you. It's similar to cultural or social signaling.

Examples make it easier to understand, so read the essay to make it easier to understand.
