[2012-Dec-28] False.

Post by fauxsoup »

False. People are LESS likely to take something that is advertised as free, because there is always a subconscious suggestion of a catch.

For instance:

FREE (rotten) FIREWOOD
FREE (std-laden) SEX
FREE (bedbug-housing) MATTRESS
FREE (abridged) THESAURUS

These aren't people we're talking about. They're English majors.
Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon
about to eat your face.

I think all graduate students would fall for the word "free". If it's really free, who cares what shape it's in? :lol:

There was a chapter in Predictably Irrational about FREE
Ask the next question.
