I would argue that there is therefore strong possibility of linxstrom behaviour around the box. Mostly there was stating the obvious, then restating it with examples because the assumed reader was too stupid to get it the first time, followed by a cap on each chapter describing what we’d learn in the next. An eye-grabbing advertisement, a catchy slogan, an infectious jingle?

Welcome, Login to your account. Segue like a grown up. Despite government buuyology, does subliminal advertising still surround us — from bars to highway billboards to supermarket shelves?

Without a proper indication of lindztrom across tests, method seems reliant on a sort of inverted association testing. As the book lindtrom now, Buyology seems to include numerous necessary but insufficient conditions. And isn’t this a bit double-sided?
