- Obama uses applied mass psychology/herd mentality at think-tank behest
- China Wants to stop using the US Dollar for international trading
- How China is Capitalizing on the Economic Crisis
- Why Facebook Is for Old Fogies
The first one I found weird because as true as the research is about large groups of people and I find that the inverse is true on a person to person level. Peer pressure is not a positive source for social change because it reodes personal reponsibility.
In groups people tend to follow the herd. On a singular level, people try to game the system to their individual advantage.
OTOH That last one was just unreal to me. The reasons they listed were some of the Best Reasons I have heard not to use Facebook.
And I do not.
