Yes, that’s a serious question.
What’s more persuasive?
“I think the secret to getting what you want hinges on your ability to give people what they want.”
“I feel the secret to getting what you want hinges on your ability to give people what they want.”
You may think (or feel) worrying about the difference between “think” and “feel” is pointless, but the truth is…
…one IS more persuasive than the other, and when you know why—and WHEN—you can take full advantage of it.
How Changing One Word Ups Your Persuasion Game
Writing a blog post? Giving a presentation? Talking to your significant other?
Knowing whether you should use “I think” or “I feel” can give you that little persuasive boost you’ve needed—and WANTED.
Now that you’ve watched this video, I’d like you to take a second and think back to some conversations you’ve had in the past.
Did you notice how you use “I think” or “I feel” ALL OF THE TIME?
But my question to you is this: do you believe you’ll be more conscious about whether you use think or feel going forward? Leave a comment and let me know.
Also, do you know someone who will find this research just as interesting as you?
Take a second and share it with them. I create these videos for you, and I don’t charge a penny for them. All I ask in return is for you to share ‘em up. So do it :-D.
