    Donald Trump's Debates: 5 Mental Tricks You Didn't Notice

    Donald Trump has proven himself to be a master persuader. His unlikely rise to prominence in the Republican primaries has riden on the fact that he knows how to work the media during interviews as well as his performances in the GOP debates against the likes of Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz.

    When watching the debates, many of his detractors criticize Trump's apparent lack of substance. For instance, he ducked Megyn Kelly's question about sexism with a joke about Rosie O'Donnell. He seems to repeat buzz words more than other candidates and often justifies his positions by referring to other people who support his stances, rather than defending them outright. While this may seem like weak arguments, Donald Trump's debate strategies actually align perfectly with the way humans think and process information. For that reason, Trump's arguments tend to sink in more than his opponent's (like Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz) do.

    In this video we'll look at the top 5 relatively unknown psychological truths that Trump exploits to get his point across during interviews and debates.

    This analysis is incorrect in treating all people the same. We are not all equally susceptible to the persuasive tactics of a Donald Trump. Some of us actually do see through the appeal to authority, the repetitiveness, and the use of anecdotal evidence in place of tested facts. The 40 percent who voted him in succumbed to these tactics however.

    You should do something on why democrats lose at every single thing they do to try to steal power. Like, show how Adam Schiff can’t be Donald Trump ever.

    The only genuine candidate and man that is intelligent enough and capable enough to handle major issues we are facing and will face in the near future is Andrew Yang. Watch his interviews, debates, and vote.

    None of those debates persuaded anybody. Americans just don't like females rule. That's it.

    Our inferential tendencies are critical, as are emotions. The question to ask is not why do they go wrong, but why do they ever work at all. I view "emotional" vs. "rational" thought as a pernicious false dichotomy. Of course, I tend to make the mistakes everyone else does most of the time, so ...

    I agree a lot of people lack rational thinking skills, prefer anecdotes to evidence and are turned off (or even frightened) by statistics (especially when presented boringly), but I don't accept that this is the way humans think and hence the norm. Instead, it's the result of ignorance due to a lack of education.

    The focus of this channel is to learn from this to be more charismatic but also consider for a moment what it means for the state of politics today. A charlatan can become POTUS by exploiting how uneducated people think... Populism is scary stuff!

    The problem is the debate format. Heuristics are fine as long as we are aware that there are pitfalls. This is called humility, and should not be incompatible with political debate. We should have debates between politicians multiple times per year.

    First, I hate him. Despise, disdain, abhor, loathe, etc.

    That disclaimer out of the way, I'm not sure why you describe his tactics as effective, because they seem wildly transparent to me. He's loud, he repeats statements over and over with ZERO evidence to back them up, he interrupts and talks over people, and he never ever admits that he's wrong. And it's all so blatant and bombastic and unappealing, and delivered with his typical baseless, groundless, empty confidence.
    How is that persuasive? I don't find him at all persuasive.
