The fascinating effects of PRIMING

How we are constantly being triggered to behave in certain ways by our environment and the people within that environment

We are being primed all of the time

The big question is can we ‘self prime’?

Can we PRIME ourselves?

John really drills down into the pro’s and cons of self priming
