Majoring In Persuasion
Scott Adams offers a thought provoking idea for a future career.
Though said with a touch of humor, Scott Adams offers a thought provoking idea for a future career. He points out that a college major focusing on persuasion would be perpetually useful, as the skill will always be needed in some way. Possible courses could include: Sales methods, Psychology of persuasion, public speaking, appearance, networking and how to entertain.
Colleges are unlikely to offer this sort of major because society is afraid and appalled by anything that can be labeled “manipulation,” which isn't even a real thing.
