Oh, hello. I didn’t see you there. What am I doing, you ask? Well it’s Science, isn’t it?
I am doing Science. For scientific research. Meaning I started with an idea or hypothesis, which is “What makes people click on and read one article over another?”
My belief is that it is a simple matter of basic instinct, the things that drive us wild and elicit the sense of pleasure. Because let’s face it, Sex is enjoyable, Drugs can be fun, and Rock and Roll, well music, in general, brings a sense of pleasure.
So, with all that in mind, I created a poll on Twitter asking that very question. What makes you read an Article. This is obviously for selfish reasons as I want everyone to read what I write as I believe it is super goodest writing.
Also, I made my assumption before asking the question as the whole idea of sex sells is proven we all know it works, the data backs it up. Which is why I am very interested in the results of the Twitter Poll listed below.
It makes me wonder, are we lying to ourselves and picking the answer we wish were true or are we simply unaware of the true reasons we do anything?
Are we hypnotized by clever tag lines and sexy marketing? Do you even realize that you are making the choice to click on this article because of the picture of to hotties with bodies about to throw down? Or a tag line that has taboos in it. Or are you believing that you really need information on How to have better Sex?
I think you know the answer but I would love to hear your thoughts.
Disclaimer: Drugs are bad Mckay, I am happily sober and do not use drugs or sex or rock and roll anymore. 🙂
