Robert B. Cialdini

Overview

Dr. Robert Cialdini needs no introduction. He is a legend in the world of marketing and sales. After three years of research at car dealerships, charity organizations, and telemarketing companies, he published this modern business classic in 1984.

Cialdini discovered six key principles which influence how we make decisions:

  1. Reciprocity
  2. Consistency
  3. Social Proof
  4. Authority
  5. Liking
  6. Scarcity

Influence became a modern business classic. Just like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, it's now required reading for anyone trying to succeed in the world of work and entrepreneurship.

Cialdini calls his principles 'shortcuts': if they're triggered, we jump to conclusions faster. Our brains like using them because they save time. They can be used for us or against us, but it is essential to understand how they work.
