The Neuroscience of It All
Thomas Snyder, MD PhD, Chairman and Founder,
Emotion Mining

  • Why and what to motivate people to buy our products?
  • Decision making is options, prices, promotions which is rational. Add the smartphone to that. There is clutter and noise and bias. This interferes with all decisions.
  • Clutter is the environment, including the internet. Noise is the influence. Bias is the kind of day we are having, our moods, and temperaments.
  • The market place is motivation overload. For information overload, look at the words. For motivation overload, look at the colours.
  • Our methods identify the book we bought, not the book we want to buy.
  • Self-report is the core of our methods. it is rational. It lies about true feelings.  People acquiesce, or don’t care, or hate it.
  • Subconscious mind plays a role in all decisions. We experience conflicting emotions at the same time.
