The discovery and development of the essential functionality of language, words, ambiguous language, figurative language, semiotics and the functionality of instincts in human decision making drove to the development of the subliminal communication approach.
Subliminal communication is a process that has been applied at The Unicist Research Institute for 25 years until it was fully confirmed. It allows influencing adaptive decisions without entering into manipulative stimulation. It empowers, on the other hand, the functionality of virtual collaboration including virtual marketing.
Subliminal Stimulation of Decision Making
Every human decision includes, at some point, the use of instinctive drivers to cover the genetic needs of individuals.
Subliminal decision making is part of two contradictory types of processes:
- Adaptive decisions that drive individuals to influence an environment while being influenced by it. These adaptive processes drive towards growth.
- Over-adaptive decisions that driven individuals to dominate, oppose or submit to an environment in order to obtain individualistic profits. These over-adaptive processes drive towards survival.
Adaptive decision making requires developing adequate subliminal stimuli that give answers that provide the “genetic” security to facilitate the decision making processes. It is necessary to provide functional subliminal information that allows establishing a safe environment in which people are able to satisfy their needs.
Developing a subliminal stimulus requires having an authoritative role that allows building an asymmetric complementation in which the individual can profit from what is proposed and at the same time what is proposed has to include an extremely aesthetic solution. Extreme aesthetics means that the solution satisfies the individual’s needs in an extremely desirable and harmonic way.
The apparent paradox is that individuals need to be segmented according to the attitudes that define their essential needs to foster their adaptive behavior, while instinctive behavior is essentially genetic driven.
Manipulative Subliminal Influence
Manipulative subliminal influence is exerted to profit from individuals by destroying their capacity of adapting to reality.
This process is totally unconscious and occurs when individuals cannot deal with reality in a conscious way and their existence is endangered. This danger might be real or may have been constructed in a parallel reality an individual created in her/his mind.
There are three aspects that can be manipulated to generate over-adaptive decisions:
- Extreme fear: Produced by facing a destructive or self-destructive situation
- Extreme desire: produced by the need to obtain extreme gratification
- Extreme uncertainty: produced by an absolute loss of control of a situation
Manipulative subliminal influence is naturally exerted by psychopaths and drives to the destruction of the counterpart and of the environment. That is why subliminal communication has been considered as unfair.
The paradox of this is that subliminal communication is naturally part of every human communication process. The question is the true intentions of the one who uses subliminal communication that can be measured by the results obtained by the participants.
The use of virtual tools in communication processes requires empowering their functionality in order to build strong functional relationships. The use of adaptive subliminal communication is a need to break the barriers established by virtuality developing a different but natural complementation context.
The inclusion of a subliminal approach is a core aspect for building semantic objects to develop object driven marketing actions. It is basic in global marketing processes in which it is necessary to deal with different segments, lifestyles and cultural archetypes.
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm. http://www.unicist.org/repo/#Unicist
