Down the road, I feel that the thing that I will take with me is the way companies advertise their products to the masses. Many of my classes this semester have focused on social media and its affects on sales. Advertisements use stimuli and conditioning methods to attract the attention of buyers and lieu them into buying their product. Psychology has showed me some of the techniques they use in order to draw attention to themselves.
Some of todays ads seem completely crazy because of how unrelated they are to the actual product. I feel that I am going to pay more attention to ads now and decipher the different conditioning methods.
