The Lucifer Effect

There are seven social processes that grease “the slippery slope of evil”:[19]

  • Mindlessly taking the first small step
  • Dehumanization of others
  • De-individuation of self (anonymity)
  • Diffusion of personal responsibility
  • Blind obedience to authority
  • Uncritical conformity to group norms
  • Passive tolerance of evil through inaction or indifference

More Advance Praise for Brainwashed
“An authoritative, fascinating argument for the centrality
of mind in what, doubtless prematurely, has been called the era
of the brain.”
—Peter D. Kramer, author of Listening to Prozac
“Brainwashed provides an engaging and wonderfully lucid tour
of the many areas in which the progress and applications of
neuroscience are currently being overstated and oversold. Some of
the hyping of neuroscience appears fairly harmless, but more than a
little of it carries potential for real damage—especially when it
promotes erroneous ideas about addiction and criminal behavior.
The book combines clearheaded analysis with telling examples
and anecdotes, making it a pleasure to read.”
—Hal Pashler, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and
Cognitive Science, University of California, San Diego
“Satel and Lilienfeld have produced a remarkably clear and important
discussion of what today’s brain science can and cannot deliver for
society. As a neuroscientist, I confess that I also enjoyed their persuasive
skewering of hucksters whose misuse of technology in the courtroom
and elsewhere is potentially damaging not only to justice but also
to the public understanding of science.”
—Dr. Steven E. Hyman, Director of the Stanley Center for
Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute of MIT and
Harvard and Former Director of the National Institute
of Mental Health
“There is a widespread belief that brain science is the key to
understanding humanity and that imaging will X-ray our minds,
revealing why we buy things and whether we are telling the truth and
answering questions about addiction, criminal responsibility, and free
will. Brainwashed is a beautifully written, lucid dissection of these
exaggerated claims, informed by a profound knowledge of current
neuroscience. It is essential reading for anyone who wants a
balanced assessment of what neuroscience can and cannot
tell us about ourselves.”
—Raymond Tallis, author of Aping Mankind: Neuromania,
Darwinitis and the Misrepresentation of Humanity

How to spot a fake person online…

Here are some key things I learned. Most of the time(not always) these profiles are:

  • Private profiles
  • Not HIGH-quality images (because they are cropped, or stolen) they may still be decent quality though
  • Very very attractive people
  • Easily reachable ( makes you think “why is this person responding to me”)
  • Fake names, google them and see what pops up if nothing pops up, well…

Now lets go into the basics of how to react if you think you might be getting catfished:

  • Ask to facetime(this is a very simple way to figure it out), if they are fake they will ALWAYS have excuses.
  • If they are in your city, try to meet up for coffee early on, before they lure you in.
  • Go through their tagged photos & comments — this can be tricky because I’ve seen accounts go back years, and have other fake accounts comment/tagging them.
  • Reverse search their images* (I’ll show how to below)
  • Fact checking their bios

People devote their LIVES to these fake profiles, so it can be extremely difficult to find out. That’s why it’s important to facetime, or meet up with them… It’s a very simple way to figure out who it is.

1.) Reverse searching images

This is a super simple process done on google. You will want to use googles reverse image search tool

2.) Googling their name

3.) Fact checking bio

4.) Check their tagged photos

Portrait of a Faker


Not “The Duck”: If you have ever heard the expression “be the duck,” that is someone who is calm on the exterior but, under the water, they are paddling like crazy to get where they need to go.  The faker isn’t the duck. The faker is a buoy, just bobbing around at ease until they can leave and proceed to miss deadlines or break promises.

A Worry Wart: Fakers are anxious about everything: what people think of them, how the deal is progressing or how its not. They are your classic worry-warts of the world who worry incessantly, but don’t work toward solutions.

Quid Pro Quo: The arrogant person believes that the world revolves around them and any kindness MUST be appreciated ten-fold. In the world of fakers, kindness is not natural.  It’s a means to an end.

No Accountability: Have you ever encountered a person who blames everyone but themselves?  Nothing is their fault and if they are called on the carpet, they ignore, deflect and blame until they have successfully assigned the blame to someone else.  This is a classic faker move.

Refuses to Compromise: Fakers usually don’t work very well in groups. That’s probably because they detest compromise. “My way or the highway” is the mentality most fakers have and they employ that mentality with ferocity. Forget trying to compromise with a faker. You will hit a brick wall every time.

Control Freak: Fakers are classic micro-managers. They want to control every aspect of a situation, or person, to assure it’s the way they want it, regardless of how it affects the organization or the people within it.

Unsure about Everything: Ask someone who is putting up a façade to make a decision and you may be waiting awhile. Fakers change their minds often and display great difficulty sticking to plans. Not only is this work style frustrating, it’s a clear mark that someone is unsure about what they are doing.

Just Plain Mean: When in doubt, fakers lash out. All of this anxiety, arrogance and insecurity manifests itself as anger. This results in cutting and cruel comments and other unprofessional and uncivil behaviors.

Fakers aren’t bad people. They are just carrying around and covering up a core of “empty.” Putting a system of values in place for yourself and building a team of solid people around you is a vital step in preserving your Yes! Energy. This gives you the infinite ability to move forward in a positive way everyday.

What does the term “rinse” mean?

In answer the question :
If you are asking this then you probably did not catch the channel 4 tv programme which coined the underground phrase for girls (usually but not always glamorous girls) that exploit men’s weaknesses by getting cash or other material gifts from these men by using their charms in exchange for their time, friendship and in some cases financial humiliation.

We have conducted a poll and for the guys it seems that most who participate enjoy the thrill of being humiliated and with the large bulk of visitors wish to find out more about the art of becoming a rinser or being rinsed. Again by our open poll it suggests that many people think that Rinsing is a good idea (almost 70%). Whilst some claim to have rinsed hundreds of thousands in gifts or money; others are just starting out.

The term golddigger used to be used but in todays social media savvy generation twitter, bbm facebook and youtube are all free tools the girls are using. The once “undergorund” term of rinsing< along with the help of the c4 documentary brings the art fully into the mainstream.

A man throwing lots of cash at a woman, shouting “Your rinsing me baby your rinsing me, Take it all, rinse me harder!”

I’m all rinsed out, well back to work, gotta earn more, hey maybe i could sell my car..
