Influence – The Cocktail Party Phenomenon

Have you ever been at a cocktail party where you are part of a bigger conversation? Suddenly you hear your own name mentioned in a nearby conversation and your attention is diverted to the conversation where your name was mentioned to the exclusion of the first conversation you were in? In fact you can’t hear the first conversation anymore? This is called the cocktail party phenomenon. It suggests that people cannot process two conversations at once.

For the amazing photo booth, I would like to thank InsideOut Photobooth. Their state-of-the-art photo booths have everything you need to make your party or event one to remember. They will explain everything, and they will customize anything to make your event amazing. For more information and reservations, you can visit their site

How does this apply to influence?
Only ask your stakeholder for one thing at a time.
