Two Routes to Persuasion

Think of someone in your life whose words and ideas have had a profound effect on you, like a friend, a teacher, an employer, a member of the clergy, or a member of your immediate family; someone to use for this Discussion. This person may have said something once that really changed your thinking and attitudes about an issue, or perhaps this person influenced you after several conversations or lectures about the issue.

Chapter 5- Persuasion: Psychological Insights and Perspectives (2nd Ed).

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a brief description of the person you chose and your relationship to him or her. Next, describe how he or she strongly influences you and discuss whether this person’s influence travels primarily through the central or peripheral route to persuasion. If central, how does this person motivate and allow you the ability to process the message? What is the strongest and weakest argument this person presents to you? If the route is mostly peripheral, explain why your motivation and/or ability to process the message are low. What positive source cue, heuristic, or other variable accounts for this person’s influence on you? Finally, explain whether this person’s influence on you is/was temporary or long lasting and why.
