Our guest, Dr. Brad Sagarin, professor of psychology at Northern Illinois university has studied and researched about how to combat the negative side of influence. We have a very lively discussion (yes, Dave is at this one) about:
- What is influence?
- Can you really defend against it?
- How do you know if you are being influenced?
- And so much more...
