Howdy from South Texas. I really like your site. It puts all the cool stuff (its all cool stuff) in order and I like that you put references on everything.
-- Dan L., Texas
What a fantastic site you have! In my new book ... I would like to use an example from your site.

This is the first I've encountered ChangingMinds.org and am quite impressed by the completeness of the site and it's take on persuasion and critical thinking.

Your site looks good! Will have to play with it.

I have just visited your site and have found amazing material on questioning.
-- Susan B. South Africa
Your site is truly one of the best of its kind. In fact, I can't even think of one I like better. It is clear you've put a lot of time and effort into it and I, for one, appreciate it! -- Blair W.
I find your site very useful, especially for academic researches.
-- Ronnie A, Philippines
I don't know how long your site has been around, but I stumbled across it 2 days ago and I just wanted to let you know I think it's outstanding. I teach workshops around the country on leadership, customer service, and sales, and I think your information is excellent, well-researched, and quite useful.
-- Dennis A.
I have read your web site expansively and enjoyed the content thoroughly. Your practical approach has made the psychologically emphasised material very presentable for the non- psychologist, and my interest in sales psychology has made this a reference site for me.
-- Aryan S., Canada
Congratulations on a wonderful website and on making so much material readily available globally.
-- Marion J.
Thanks very much for the tremendous work you've done at changingminds.org! There's so much good information here, and it's summarized and arranged so well.
-- Ken J
I just found your site, and I’m recommending it to all my undergraduates (in fact, you’re on next month’s syllabus) for it provides a very needed shotgun sample of theories, approaches, lists, etc. for them to consider when researching their campaigns. Often, they don not know where to begin to look for communication theories that would assist them in their research to solve problems with public information campaign situations. -- Professor Karen J-C, USA
Congratulations for your interesting resources.
-- LB, France
I just want to tell you that this is one of the best sites I have ever had the opportunity to discover. Full of explanations and thought-provoking exposition of the most varied and important subjects. Really congratulations for your work, which is helping me to learn a lot and improve my personal and professional life.
-- Nelson V-T
I have e-mailed you to congratulate you on such a wonderful site. I am at
present revising for a Social Psychology exam and your site has been invaluable
for quick but comprehensive understanding on the terminology which seems to
dominate the subject, (although very interesting).
-- Debbie W, UK
Love the site. Its really exciting to have a stripped down fundamental look
at the psychology of change. I would love to see the forum grow into a
discussion hub on the techniques and theories described inside the site.
Thank you for providing these resources to the general public.
-- Matthew, UK
I am a grad student doing research on Leadership, I really like your web site.
It’s wonderful. Thank you so much for taking all the time to do this. I am preparing for a presentation next week on Leadership – and you have exactly what I need – I think you will see more hits on your site after our presentation as I will be sharing my source.
-- Carol W., USA
I stumbled across your Changing Minds site today and got sidetracked for
about 2 1/2 hours.........
An excellent resource and (you'll be pleased to know) it managed to shift my
thinking too. I had a disappointing client meeting yesterday and your
information on Groupthink (and other related topics) managed to bring some
clarity to the situation.
Great work. Please keep it up.
-- Mark E., UK
WOW WOW I think this site provides a lot to be aware of. I am busy now and would like to read it all BUT I really don’t like looking at the comp screen too long. I think me along with many others would love to see all this well written concise material but into a book with a nice index glossary and put together nice, and I’m sure after reading some free would like to have it as part of their collection and to read in book format and would be more than willing to pay for it. I think people would love to read a lot of it free but them also love to have a hard copy of it on book format with all the fundamental things on this site and can read and stay on the site for updates to read online.
Just a short note to let you know that I've really enjoyed your site. A comprehensive collection of knowledge which should be taught in every public school.
-- Paul D
What I really liked about your site is you people have provisions made
for guys like us who are not in a position to afford some products financially.
This shows that you are real human beings at heart. In future I will definitely
be useful to you in any form. I don't know how but I am sure I would definitely
pay back for what I gained from you people.
Thanks for being how you are and good work being carried by you.
-- Rafi, India
Hello, I stumbled upon your site when trying to do research on the seven virtues, but after I got the information I needed (After the typical hit and run internet research errand) I discovered what the site was really about, and I LOVE it and have been on it reading for a couple of hours now! This is really good stuff, the information is a real eye opener, I never knew there were so many different factors involved in persuasion and communication that could be explained so accurately!
I really think you have done a fabulous thing with your website, giving a lot of very useful information that can be used to understand a lot more about what you are busy with.
Years ago I managed for McDonald's. Part of their awesome training plan
included a section they called "McPac" depicting the three ego states. In the
years I managed people, this has been the single most useful tool to me. It also
made the basis for my parenting techniques.
Recently, I tried to explain this whole concept to a friend 'in need'. I
keyed the basic words into Google and found your site! I'm sure I will read for
hours now on this fascinating subject. Thank you for your site and all the info
-- Natalie, Canada
What an amazing resource your site is. Absolutely fantastic. I have begun a dreaded telemarketing job and perusing your materials before and whilst I work helps me focus and gives me hope. So again I say thank-you.
-- Gregg, Canada
I visited this site and now am visiting every day. This is great treasure like rules of Life. These rules make life best experience. "So What?" section in Principle section is my favorite.
Thanks a lot for the efforts done by the creators of this Web Site.

Firstly, let me say I love your website. I just stumbled across it recently, and I am "hooked". :0) It was just what I was looking for.
Thank you for your efforts to teach the world through your sites. All of them
are the most useful sites I've ever experienced and it helped me a lot.
I have just found your fantastic website ChangingMinds.org and having just begun studying for a Headteacher's qualification I am finding the site very useful. I have particularly enjoyed reading Transformational Leadership and relate very much to this.
I will be passing your website address on to my colleagues on the Headteacher course.

Great site! Well organized. Good information and an easy read. Quick loading time of pages for dial-up access.

I’ve just come across your FABULOUS site. The information is presented so well. We have a group of consultants who deliver our programs for us and I will be referencing www.changingminds.org as a valuable resource for them.
Thank you for your generosity – may it return to you ten fold.
-- Catriona, Australia
I think your website is fantastic! I appreciate the free information... especially the group dynamics like 'groupthink' Bystander Effect, Social Identity Theory, Social Norms etc
-- David, Australia
Preparing for an interview I stumbled across your site after completing a Career Anchors questionnaire which I wanted to know more about. This is a fantastic site which provides a one stop shop with clear and useful information for anyone interested in management practices. I have been on the site for over an hour and missed Corrie!!!! [Ed: this is a UK TV soap]
Will be spreading the word - keep up the good work.
-- Palo, UK
