I came across this site while researching, the article in the Guardian I was reading mentioned Changing Minds and here I am.  I'm so happy to have found a site like this all this, it's a fantastic site!  Thank you Dave.  I am so engrossed with it that its taken me away from my studies and the library closes at five.  Must go but I will be back!

 -- DD, London, UK


I just wanted to say I love your site, it is extremely helpful and clear, well written and energizing, thank you!

Very good site. Thanks  

 -- Santha K

Hey David,

My name is Ian, I am a 17 year old student from Australia, and just wanted to thank you for the excellent source of information this site provides.

I came across your site while searching for articles on body language and dominance, and Changing Minds has helped me to not only understand dominant behavior, but also to subvert it.

The more articles I read, the more links I keep clicking on and get distracted by - there's just such a wealth of great information available.

- Thank you for putting such effort into this site, Ian.

-- Ian F


Work that deserves praise!

Informative. Helping. Great.

Thank you!

-- A, Moldova


! I found you after reading the book by Scott Adams, “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life”. He references the theories you discuss and how important it is to have an understanding of the biases that people have. Thank you for providing such a great resource on your website, ChangingMinds.org, and through your book to help me better understand these concepts.

-- Raquel B, USA


Wow, I came across this site and I must say, I'm impressed with how well detailed the information is and how well is laid out for reading ease.

Thank you for sharing this site with us!
-- Gigi, USA


This is the most incredibly informative website I've landed upon in a while. I don't even remember how I got here, but I'm glad I did.

-- Greg


I came across your webpage the second time recently via Stumbleupon and thought once again you are doing probably something extraordinary. I especially like the practicality of your approach, and the way things are categorized into tiny, separate bits. The coverage seems also impressive.

-- Valtteri, Finland


Thank you for all the work you’ve done with Changing Minds. I’ve found it to be the best resource for getting an overview of change and persuasion principles. 

Thanks!

I just came across your site today and must tell you: I am impressed!

You have a great deal of excellent information here, which is well-presented and very useful for people like me who speak and write for a living.

I just want express my appreciation for this amazing wealth of information. I am not very comfortable in social gatherings but the insights I have gleaned in just a short time have been personally very helpful.

The site is also very enjoyable to read and there is huge amount of useful information.

Thank you.

This is just a letter to thank you for your comprehensive web site full of information about body language. I have not even started to look at the rest, but I am very interested. I am busy writing my memoire and already have the skeleton of 65 000 words. Now I am searching the internet so find some indications of body language to give my story flesh, and wow! Yours is the best, I do not have to go further.

Thank you

Hi. I'm from the Philippines and I just have to tell you, your work at ChangingMinds.org has saved me hours of writing and presentations. I get to communicate effectively and therefore get my bosses or clients right where I want them to be and believe what I want them to believe. You've made my life easier.

 -- Karlo G., Philippines


I just want to say thank you for so many helpful resources in one place.  I found out about your site through my professor.  I love all the lists!  It makes everything so easy to find, and the material is easy to read and understand.

I had to actually make myself leave the site, because I just reading and reading, but I had assignments to do!  I have your site on my favorites list now and plan to refer to it often.  Thanks again.

 -- Sherry E.


It was great to find this site and see how it has been put together just for me. how may I ever re-pay your labor, foresight vision and creativity. 'yah is good people'  I also like the fact that you might make some money. Your funny and I'm excited for you and your family. As you have learned when we decide to pursue our heart and do what right rather than do what may pay. Although, don't get me wrong keeping things on rent, light, cable email coffee and a late night supper and play is also living in balance. I've digressed please allow me to say again thank you! For your vision and foresight for struggling human consultants and educators.

Dear David,

I'm a mature student of an undergraduate program of Social Studies (Honors-Level 8) with Applied Social Care. And your site has been a great tool, to support my understanding of conformity & compliance on the influence of groups.

I would like to say first of all, a big thank you for providing free access to such a great material that you have on your site. Second, you're an inspirational person, thank you so much as you have taught me more than I wished for, but not less than I need!

-- Cida Silva Limerick - Ireland


Thank you very much on your page on theories. It was very helpful and exciting to learn.

Thanks for all the excellent summary information you have...your web page succinctly summarises a lot of constructs that are difficult to glean from academic books.

Keep up the good work!

This site is serious, professional, educating, and wonderful. I want to thank all of you who develop it.

-- Ali M. - Art Professor


I have just been re-acquainted with your website after having lost it for a couple of years. I just wanted to say Thank You for helping a small-time salesman understand some great tactics/techniques. You guys are the best website hands-down for this type of information.

Cheers,

 --Joe

Such a wonderful, interesting website. I'm fascinated with persuasion. So this website is right up my alley.

I stumbled across it when I searched for Socratic questions on Google (you have a great webpage on that). As I started to browse, I found so much I wanted to read, understand and apply right away. Really exciting for me.

I know it was a lot of work putting a site like this together. And I know I'm not the first and I won't be the last but I'm expressing my deep appreciation for you and your teams hard work.

Time for me to do my part and start learning.

Best wishes,

 -- Jason

Full of Respect

-- Arber L


Bravo!

Thanks Dave!

You've done a great job ;-D

 -- Shirley ML


Stumbled on your great website trying to understand Myers Briggs types. Read your blog and coincidentally saw something today that really was profound in a comical way. A bumper sticker on an old car in front of me that said "DON'T PANIC. There is always Welfare." THere is so much unease in the world, and I think that bumper sticker said - what is the worse that can happen - you lose everything? That's not so bad, even then, there is help even then. Just seemed kinda of brilliant to me. have a good Friday.

-- anon

 


I just found your website surfing how to listen. Beautiful! I like the short style.

-- Don C.

 


How exciting!!

I am in awe. Thank you so much. I feel like my perpetually curious brain is finally able to experience knowledge satiety. And from just your generous site alone!!

With deepest gratitude,
 -- Leah (from VA)


Hello,

I'm based in Melbourne Australia and teach a course for young people with a disability about joining the workforce.

I will be including your material in my student workbook as it is so perfectly suited to the units I deliver. It came as a surprise that you had no copyright issues and for this there are approx 18 young people and myself who are very grateful indeed.

Warm wishes for a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

 -- Janice G.


Hi,
My name is Kathryn and I'm currently doing a degree, having found particularly useful information on your website I began to hunt how to reference you accurately and I was amazed at the entire section you have to help us poor students out!!
Just want to say it's such a good feature and I wish every website had it!
Thank you; an incredibly grateful student.

-- Kathryn H

 


thank you! your site rocks!

-- et


Thank you, for this practical, clear and very well understood and explained content in your website.

In my opinion, not only the content but also the organization of the content is major breakthrough.

As an engineer who was not educated on these matters, it was a great benefit for me reading from your website.

Thank you again.

-- Gediz G


I would just like to thank you for the analysis of the Barack Obama acceptance speech on your website.

On Friday afternoon I taught a group of adults who are giving education a second shot and who hope to go on to train to be teachers on completing their Access to Higher Education course.

As a class we watched the speech in full and then went through your detailed analysis of the speech line by line - it was an amazing session. We had been studying the use of persuasion over the last four sessions, looking at increasingly complex structures and formats in preparation for the students' first written assignment. In the majority of cases this is the first piece of academic writing students will attempt in a good many years.

What the students lack in confidence and technqiue they more than make up for in experience, life skills and passion and they got it - they really got it. Allegory, rhetoric, personification, alliteration - terms which caused widespread panic just a few weeks ago were acknowledged, understood and discussed with considerable knowledge and insight. This was where their implicit knowledge of language became explicit and where their self belief and confidence came on in leaps and bounds.

This is a first class resource - with thanks from us all.

-- Anne M, USA

I just wanted to let you know I am doing a project making a staffing handbook for my staffing class. As I was looking for information on behavior-based questions and the Halo effect I found your article. I just wanted to let you know that this article is great and helped me learn even more then I already know. I have used you as a source for those two areas and I wanted to thank you for publishing this article.
