  • 4. 15 + 6
  • 5. 3 + 56
  • 6. 89 + 2

  • 16. Why Does This Work? 1. 98% 2. Answering Quickly 3. “Red” and “Hammer”
  • 17. The 98% The 2% / 98% claim is bogus It's a lie for effect It's to increase the stickiness of the exercise Which do you think will work better? Telling them they part of a large but probably non- majority group, but that the grouping itself is irrelevant Telling people they’re in a highly significant and, by extension, a prestigious group

Answering Quickly The instructions say to answer quickly without thinking Then you see a simple questions quickly Gets you into the mode of making simple conclusions The “easy thinking” part of your brain Then the payoff, Quickly: Think of a color and a tool Sudden shift to a different part of your brain But only produces easy associations Because of the quick response https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070616053454AArrqbf
