There’s this really interesting concept in consumer behavior known as “anchoring.” It’s the idea that once a consumer knows of a certain data point (like, an original price of an item) they automatically anchor to that number, and compare all other data to it.
It’s why you’re likely to think of a percentage-off sales price as an actual sale.
It’s why you might order the second-highest priced menu item, to consider yourself elite without spending the biggest bucks.
Doesn’t that make you feel manipulated?
I wanna talk about the things no one tends to talk about
Our solution is not to blame.
It’s not the assumption that problems will fix themselves either. Instead we must have absolute faith in a deeper rooted rock that is holding our mangled up, messy mankind in place.
Every year of your life is important. Every single year of your life, new people and situations and opportunities will enter just as often as people and situations and opportunities will exit. It’s a balance, and every element matters.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing and reading and all the storytelling things since I learned as a kid that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
