Persuasive Tactics

For my specific research topic, I chose to focus and discover how Hitler persuaded large amounts of people to follow him by simply public speaking. Hitler who is known as notorious today, was once the leader of the German empire. I will place my focus on how this notorious man persuaded thousands of people that his way of thinking was not only correct but moral.

One of my many questions will focus on how his tone and  language were specific to certain speeches he made, and why he used specific types of tone and language to convey his message. I will also look further into how he prepared his speeches for specific functions such as speaking to the public and/or speaking to dignitaries. The main focus of my research will be the reactions to Hitler’s speeches, and how this made him as powerful as he was. Another large factor, is how Hitler used his body language in a persuasive way when presenting a speech or address to the public. We are very visual people, so we can understand that the more stimuli during a speech the better we perceive it. I will use this human response to see how Hitler’s body language and gestures had an effect on his viewers and listeners.

I chose this topic because I think it is very interesting, and it is an important part of history. I am not trying to prove if Hitler was a bad person or not, because that is not the purpose of this research paper. I am simply going to find information to show how, as people, we can be easily persuaded to think something is good simply by the way it is presented. I hope that by finding the specific information on this topic, I can inform my readers that just because something is wrapped in a pretty package does not always mean it is pretty. Hopefully, we can learn that our own opinions should be the ones we focus on instead of the opinions of others.hitler2

A Public Review Proposal

This week, I was asked to pick a topic or object to personally review. I began thinking long and hard about a topic that would not only interest me but also interest the public. I started jotting down ideas and soon found the topic that interested me the most. I realized that I wanted my topic to be about music. I have always had an immense love and admiration for music. I began looking into basing my whole topic around music, and how it has changed not only how we see things but also how we view them. The more I thought about this topic the more I realized that I wanted to talk about how applications (apps) have influenced music. I found that the most widely used form of this type of app is I-Tunes.itunes

I personally love I-Tunes and use it very frequently. It is an app that has many different qualities and adheres in many different ways to its user. I believe that using I-Tunes as my topic will not only inform current users of this app but also may bring in new users. My hope is that in reviewing I-Tunes, I can not only show people how music is important but also prove that I-Tunes can be very helpful for any person who has a love for all kinds of music. I am very excited to review this app that I personally love, and hope that I can convince my readers to fall in love with it to.
