WEFOUNDMind over Media: Solutions Manual: Creative Thinking Skills for Multimedia Computing


Propaganda plays on human emotions—fear, hope, anger, frustration, sympathy—to direct audiences toward the desired goal. In the deepest sense, propaganda is a mind game — the skillful propagandist exploits people’s fears and prejudices. Successful propagandists understand how to psychologically tailor messages to people’s emotions in order to create a sense of excitement and arousal that suppresses critical thinking.

Propaganda may use accurate and truthful information, or half-truths, opinions, lies and falsehoods. Successful propaganda tells simple stories that are familiar and trusted, often using metaphors, imagery and repetition to make them seem natural or "true."

Effective propaganda conveys messages, themes, and language that appeal directly, and many times exclusively, to specific and distinct groups within a population. Propagandists may appeal to you as a member of a family, or your racial or ethnic identity, or even your hobbies, your favorite celebrities, your beliefs and values, or even your personal aspirations and hopes for the future.

Good job. I like the way you incorporated Pinker’s quotes to backup what you’re saying. I agree with the fact that we need to learn how to control ourselves from over using social media and letting it become a distraction. Good organization and flow.

You understand the essay very well. But I suggest that you also can talk about your own experiences which relate to this essay.

I really enjoyed reading this response, but I would like to hear more of your opinion based on what Pinker argues. However, to comment on what you stated in terms of people just need to develop self control, it is true. I do think that technology does not turn our brains into mush. It all depends on how we use it, just like other things in our lives. Too much can be harmful depending on how we use it!

Critics believe that the use of technology causes distractions, however self control is a key to using technology. Just like any other temptations we find ourselves with. If social media and networking caused a negative impact on our brain, all aspects of jobs and research would decline as well. With the invention and use of technology, new discoveries have improved, multiplied and will continue progressing.

There was also one sentence that needs to be revised since it can’t stand on its own: “Just like any other temptations we find ourselves with.”
