Okay, I am sure you’ve heard about the sixth sense or at least heard of or seen the movie. Well, I’ve never watched the movie, but I’ve heard about it. I can hear what appear to be subliminal messages and I can spot subliminal messages in ads really quickly. I remember in middle school I was watching a video and said “WAIT rewind the tape” then went through each frame until I found the image that was actually an ad that was displayed for, like a millisecond and paused the tape on that frame to prove that the ad was there.
Sound, some people believe sound is a great way to control animals, so why wouldn’t businesses use it to control their customers? I think they do. I hear these loud ear deafening sounds that are at such a high pitch that no one else can hear it, well, except my dad… who is trying to teach me how to tune it out. This pitch aggravates me so much and drives me bonkers. I’ve noticed that other people get agitated in the store and don’t think as well… well, I personally don’t know them because they are strangers, but in my opinion they aren’t thinking that well. They make rash decisions and purchase items they don’t actually need, because they’re told to by someone who works at the store.
Boy, I hate sales people on commission who only know how to con people. A store that I go to quite frequently has gotten rid of a lot of their con salesmen, because I always step in when they play their game, so the con artists hate me, while the legit salesmen and managers like me and will go to great lengths to help me. The POINT of this post which is sounding a bit like a rant, is that there are sounds in stores to irritate you and make you buy things you don’t need without you knowing.
True, I’ve only noticed it at this one store, but noticed is the keyword. I believe I’ve heard sounds at other stores, but nothing as painful as they do at this one store. I have P.D.D NOS which is on the autism spectrum, so I hear things and notice things that most people don’t or can’t notice. Honestly, your lucky to not hear them.
