Whatever You Do: DO NOT read this post.
Why did you click the link? I told you not to read this blog post. Do you really think you can just do whatever you want? The person who wrote it told you not to. Have you ever wondered why people are more likely to do something when they’re told not to? Me too. The theory is called “Reactance theory”. Reactance Theory is a motivational reaction to offers, persons, rules, or regulations that threaten or eliminate specific behavioral freedoms. Reactance occurs when a person feels that someone or something is taking away his or her choices or limiting the range of alternatives. This theory applies when we are told not to do something or not to accept a certain point of view. When we are told we can’t eat sweets before dinner or not to smoke the ganja our inner rebel hops out and next thing you know we are high as fuck, eating sweets for dinner instead of before it. Reactance theory is used by many as a sort of reverse psychology trick, for example naming this post “Don’t read this blog” probably made you more likely to click it wether you realize it or not.
