Book Review: Jonah Berger, Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior
Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior bestseller The bestselling author of Contagious explores the subtle, secret influences that affect the decisions we make—from what we buy, to the careers we choose, to what we eat—in this fascinating and groundbreaking work. The funny thing is, even those who buck the trends oftentimes do so in response to the trend itself, which makes rebellion a bit less rebellious.
What I wonder, however, is how we can know whether we are making a decision for ourselves or in response to those around us. Is striving to be original just a rebellious reaction to what already exists? This is, perhaps, a bit philosophical for a book review, but the idea that our decisions are not our own is fairly depressing. While I recognize that society plays a huge role in shaping behavior, I also think that there are those who buck the trend without trying to conform with the rebels — it just happens.
