BEGINNERS GUIDE TO PROPAGANDA - a thread
... using #CarlJung's Analytical Psychological method, later adapted into #MBTI, #MyersBriggs

During World War II, the US #OSS intelligence service recruited #Jung as ‘Agent 488’ to work against the Nazis.

1) #Jung and #MBTI propose that judgement is shaped by competing polarity of the more primitive "Feeling"-F vs frontal lobe "Thinking"-T. Humans use both, but will favor one or the other.

In Political influencing, far easier to influence the 'like vs dislike' Feeling-F function.
2) Popular conception of 'brainwashing' occurs at the perceptual level, second letter of #MBTI profile.

S-"Sensing" simple, raw perception shared by all animals
N-"Intuition" advanced RELATIONAL memory in all humans

We favor/prefer one over the other, depending on situation.
3) Video presentations usually force us into our S-Sensing function, as it is difficult to do both at same time. We have all been accused of 'daydreaming', some more than others🙂

Forceful S-Sensory experiences push the Intuitive into subconscious, where associative links form.
4) Television doesn't TELL people what to conclude, but it can SHOW people how to conclude. This is the aim of commercials and political presentations.

The key target is usually the F-Feeler 'like-dislike' sorting function, rarely the logical 'true vs false T-Thinking function.
5) PR experts take over Intuitive-Thinking process. Viewers are left to sense, feel.

Recent @MikeBloomberg political ad provides a great example of sneaky subconscious image implant via video.

#Trump clips are juxtaposed with entertainment archetypes.
@MikeBloomberg 6) Televised video fills mental bandwidth with sensory distraction, usually targeting Feelers "like-dislike" reflex to boost ratings.

IQ aside, a substantial portion of the population already prefers Sensing-Feeling, 56% of females, 30% of males, and most do for entertainment.
