Making Connections for Success Recognizing Fallacies in Persuasion We are constantly bombarded by attempts to persuade us to do something. Telemarketers ask us to take advantage of a credit card to solve our financial problems (and likely create new ones); four or five direct-mail advertisers send offers for better cable and Internet services; another set of calls and mailings wants us to donate to a worthy cause; a speaker pleads with us to donate blood to the local chapter of the Red Cross. Advertisers often use fallacious reasoning to make their products seem better. They relay on our need to know to get us to attend to their messages. They provide only enough data to pique curiosity, but then fail to give us enough information to make a judgment on the product. They give us either–or situations and predict dire consequences if we don’t buy their product or service. Keep track of persuasive attempts for a two-day period. Identify and create a list of the number of times someone tries to persuade you and then analyze the content so you can share it with your class. 1. How many different persuasive attempts were made in that two-day period? 2. What kinds of reasoning did the persuaders use? 3. What strategies appealed to you? Which ones did not? 4. If any were successful, what made the persuasion a success? 5. Were the persuaders ethical? If so, how? If not, why?
