You’ll Learn:

  • How Daryl’s fascination for the human condition led him to question how ads and marketing works on the brain.
  • The disconnect and outright myths around consumer psychology and how the consumer mind works.
  • Why brands struggle with trying to elicit emotion in their marketing.
  • Why the way humans relate to brands isn’t likely to change, regardless of the technology or medium.
  • About the term heuristics and how cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias affects our decision-making.


3 Key Points:

  1. Brands are a collection of associations in consumer’s minds.
  2. The human brain is and remains fundamentally unchanged from 100,000 years ago.
  3. We need to get smarter about connecting with the unconscious mind, which actually controls decision-making.
