923: Carlos Alvarenga – The Rules of Persuasion: From Aristotle to AI


Persuasion is the subject of today's episode. Before you tune into my conversation with independent researcher Carlos Alvarenga, take a moment to reflect on your immediate reaction to this word. Carlos and I explore the power of character and origin in influencing others, drawing insights from Aristotle. Carlos also shares the pivotal role of emotion in persuasion, emphasizing its synergy with character and argument. We discuss the chemistry of persuasion, its reframing as creating chemistry, and the potential dark side involving technology and AI. Tune in to this episode to gain invaluable insights into creating genuine connections and positive influence in the ever-evolving landscape of entrepreneurship.
