Nudge Theory and The Morning Nudge — 6 Comments

  1. When I first saw your reference to “Nudge Theory,” I thought it was something you made up, based on your success with “The Morning Nudge.” Interesting that it is a well-known social theory that I never heard of. I don’t think nudging people is a bad thing, since it is ultimately up to the receiving individual whether he or she acts on the desired behavior change.

    • Hi, Melissa,

      Wish I could take credit for the theory, but I can’t. 🙂

      Thanks for your comment. I think it’s interesting that we don’t always know we’re being nudged.

  2. I found your post and the video extremely exhilarating. Keeping it simple is always a great idea and now we know that it’s also powerful. No, I can’t believe nudging would be considered wrong. We all make choices, almost always our subconscious is working to protect us. Thank you for sharing.

    • Hey,

      Thanks for dropping by. I think “nudging” is a great way to make the world a better place without making more and more laws.

  3. I don’t like manipulation and sometimes it’s very easy to feel that way with politics, insurance companies, drug companies, sales, etc. – but as Sharon pointed out, if it’s something for the greater good of a person and/or our world and “we” the individual may make a choice to follow through with it or not, I say two thumbs up. Even if we don’t necessarily know that we are being “nudged” – we are still making a choice – consciously or sub-consciously…and make those kinds of choices everyday/every minute of our lives.

    • Hi, Susan,

      I agree. If we are nudged to make choices that help us live healthier, safer lives, for example, I’m all for it.

      Thanks for you comment.
