The Ohlone College Psychology Club presents Dr. Anthony Pratkanis, professor of psychology at UC Santa Cruz, with "Selling FlimFlam" The Social Psychology of Influence. Discover the secret influence tactics of con artists, quacks, psychics, and the power of phantom dreams. Recently seen on the Discovery Channel, where producers censored his lecture, Dr. Anthony Pratkanis will discuss the psychology of influence including commonly used tactics, the reason people fall prey to them, and how we can learn to recognize "flimflam" and protect ourselves and others. See and hear for yourself what the Discovery Channel doesn't want you to know.
