    Great book. Interesting observations about the psychology of influence. Understanding the other persons needs then using those needs to persuade. :)

    I draw the line between legal and illegal and will always stay on the legal side. Everything else is just business not personal.

    @Leo2413

    food for a thought!

    create a thread with headtitle "leo's mindset book recommendation"

    easy to track and could be useful to forum members!

    @Be Developer cheers. I actually think @Taku Ekanayake had a good idea awhile ago to have like a book review section where people read a book and then write up a review. Not sure how many people would be interested in that functon but i think its a good idea.

    Many people put their own meanings on things. They put things through their own filters and come up with a meaning according to their own conditioning.

    The more self development a person has done, the more they can see things as they are and not put their own meaning on it.

    There are a lot of things that reactivate people and cause them to put fear based meanings on things.

    Ie - a fast food company.
    Self developed person will say that is a fast food company, I like/don't like fast food. I don't like to eat refined food, l like it every now and then, a treat for the kids, I like some items on the menu

    All the above statements are true for that person.

    A reactive person who has done no or very little self development work will dramatise.
    Poison! They are poisoning us, everyone is fat because they exist. They should be shut down, they should not be so cheap, they are "making" people eat it because they "want" people to be unhealthy.

    These are all generalised, fear based, lack self control, lack personal power and completely insane!

    Possibly the person dramatising those comments has no personal power. They need a good dose of self development and may be a good idea to keep away from things that reactivate them including a "burger" in the mean time.

    My kids hear it from school all the time, even from teachers.

    They often say "mc Donald's makes people fat"
    Then I question - who did it make fat?
    You've had a burger last week are you fat? No
    Overeating makes people fat, can people become fat if they eat too much home cooked food and don't exercise.

    Then the child realised, "oh so I'm in control" yes you are!!!

    Great post @Xenia and I agree with you.

    It think the big problem nowadays is that there are a lot of people who don't want to take responsibility for their own life. It's so much easier to blame everyone else except themselves. Someone once said "taking complete responsibility for your life is the highest form of maturity".

    Having an entitled attitude is the other killer.

    I can't imagine living in a world where you're too scared to go out and enjoy a burger or an ice cream with your family because somebody has done something to it, put something in it or is somehow out to get you.

    I can't imagine not being able to go into a wealth creation seminar and listen and learn from another persons experience without thinking they are selling to me, they are scamming me I wonder what their intention is.

    Who cares, just enjoy it.

    Self development makes your life about you and how you feel about things. You become kinder to others if you are happy too.
    It's freedom.

    Non self developed people are always second guessing what another persons thoughts or intentions are and in most cases - it does not really matter anyway.

    Everyone's opinion and interpretation will be different. As long as people are respectful of others opinions and view points then in theory there shouldn't be any issues..
