IS BIG TECH MANIPULATING ME? [EPISODE 204]

January 22, 2022

In this episode, I talk about manipulation and focus on how you are manipulated at work, through rewards programs, and most insidiously through apps that are designed to manipulate you.

I draw heavily on an article: How ‘Gamification’ of everything is manipulating you by Stephen Johnson.

I add my own commentary and perspective to the article.

I promise you this—once you see what is happening, you will see it everywhere. You are being manipulated.
