Great Storytelling Persuasion Power The power of persuasion elegantly woven into a great story is legendary. Here Jennifer Aaker tells some great stories about how they fit so very well and so naturally together. This type of persuasion rocks! However her great skill here is weaving information and story together almost seamlessly. This is no small feat considering we’re used to having one as a main course and one for desert. Here on the same plate – they are served up impeccably well. In fact this secret sauce tantalises both sides of experience at the same time. The wider creative narritive and the detail are very well blended together. And science has shown just how well the human brain learns in this unique environment. Persuasion Power Made Easy It’s what makes this a super powered persuasion video. There’s some nittyy gritty on that topic right here.
Our stories are often how we define ourselves. Most people have a single story, a one-dimensional narritive that defines them. It doesn’t have to be that way. SINGLE STORY CULTURE Here, in this TED Talk novelist Chimamanda Adichie talks of the danger of her friend having a single story. She asks some hard questions and points how our cultural stories can lock us into a limited and rigid view of the world. Stories are defined by the principle of ‘nkali’  – of power. Power, Chimamanda explains “is not just the ability to tell the story of another person, but to make it the definitive story of that person.” SINGLE STORY FAILURE “If you want to dispossess a people”, the Palestinian poet Mourid Barghouti wrote, “the simplest way to do it is to tell their story, and to start with ‘secondly’… and you have an entirely different story. Start the story with the arrows of the native Americans, not with the arrival of the British and you have an entirely different story. Start the story of the failure of the African State and not with the colonial creation of the  African State and you have an entirely different story.”
