What Do You Notice?
Despite the best efforts of Madison Avenue to convince us that various products are essential if we are to signal our high status and power, it may be that some of us don't quite notice what they want us to notice and, even if we do, we don't care.
So here's the first question: Which if the following items are you most likely to silently note the price of [as in whether it is very expensive] in the course of a one hour meeting with a person?
- Wrist watch.
- Cologne or perfume.
What's the second question? If an item is very expensive, would it make a difference - be it logical or not - in how you perceive the person's taste and/or competence?
