Pavlovian Corruption

June 28, 2020

    • Pavlovian responses seem to be a function of the frequency (food bell) and the intensity of the stimuli (car crash).
    • When the messenger brings the news we don’t want to hear, the Pavlovian response must be curbed and antipathy must be managed so we hear the bad news without delay.
    • Giving into the Pavlovian conditioning (knee-jerk reaction caused by the neural association) will corrupt your cause to the point you can’t see contrary opinion.
