Persuasion Mind Trick: How to Impress in Meetings

TRANSKRIP
Imagine that you are in charge of a company and are hiring for a new position.
Here are the candidates.
Without thinking about it too much, which one would you choose?
My guess is that you went for one of those in the middle and avoided the people on the ends.
Why?
Because research shows that we tend to unconsciously think that the individuals in the middle of a group tend to be more important.
Some of the work has examined the TV quiz show, The Weakest Link,
in which contestants stand in a semi-circle and vote one another off.
Those standing towards the middle of the semi-circle won the game on average 45% of the time,
whilst those standing on one of the ends won just 10% of the time.
So if you want to make a good impression during a meeting,
make sure you sit towards the middle of the group.

TRANSKRIP
Imagine that you are in charge of a company and are hiring for a new position.
Bayangkan kamu yang memegang pimpinan sebuah perusahaan dan sedang melakukan perekrutan untuk sebuah posisi baru.

Here are the candidates.
Inilah kandidatnya.

Without thinking about it too much, which one would you choose?
Tanpa berpikir terlalu lama, manakah yang akan kamu pilih?

My guess is that you went for one of those in the middle and avoided the people on the ends.
Saya menebak bahwa kamu memilih satu kandidat yang ada di tengah dan menghindari kandidat di ujung.

Why?
Mengapa?

Because research shows that we tend to unconsciously think that the individuals in the middle of a group tend to be more important.
Karena riset menunjukkan bahwa kita cenderung secara tidak sadar berpikir bahwa individu di tengah sebuah kelompok cenderung lebih penting.

Some of the work has examined the TV quiz show, The Weakest Link,
Beberapa dari riset telah meneliti pertunjukan kuis TV, The Weakest Link,

in which contestants stand in a semi-circle and vote one another off.
di mana kontestan berdiri di dalam posisi setengah lingkaran dan saling memilih peserta lain untuk dikeluarkan.

Those standing towards the middle of the semi-circle won the game on average 45% of the time,
Kontestan yang berdiri sekitar bagian tengah setengah lingkaran itu memenangkan permainan rata-rata 45% dari seluruh permainan,

whilst those standing on one of the ends won just 10% of the time.
sedangkan yang berdiri di masing-masing ujung hanya menang 10% dari seluruh permainan.

So if you want to make a good impression during a meeting,
Jadi kalau kamu ingin membuat kesan yang bagus selama pertemuan,

make sure you sit towards the middle of the group.
pastikan kamu duduk di tengah-tengah kelompok.
