But What Do People Really Think?
To See the Whole Video, Go To - But What Do People Really Think? Below is a transcription of this video Hey, this is Justin, and I’m recording this video in response to Seth Godin blog post, “But what do people really think?” I’m actually recording this in the dark as I’m just finishing up feeding my son at about 5 o’clock in the morning on Monday, April 1. It’s funny, you’re not going to find out. I’ve had a hunch about this for a while but Godin’s so great at confirming the thoughts and putting them into practical meaning. You’ll never find out what people think by asking them. The truth is most people do not even really know what they think.
Most people are putting on a show most of the time, and it’s really not malicious. It’s really about survival and how people operate, and so to find out what people really think, observe their actions. Do they say yes to you? Do they continue to buy your products? Do they pay attention to you or just ignore you? That will be the signal to help you find out what people really think. You know the old adage ask somebody to find out what they actually think? Well, when you ask somebody what they think, they’re going to tell you what you want to hear or what actually makes them look good or is the easiest. Some people will tell you truly what they think but most of the time, you’re not going to get the true feelings of what people actually think. Thanks a lot for listening to this. Make today a great day.
