Changing People's Minds


This This American Life podcast is very interesting, especially the first story. Just shows, once again, how important a positive example is, and how screaming and anger won't change people's minds.

UPDATE: Turns out the data was faked for this. Yikes!
Thanks to Brendon Brewer for noting this.
