    Below is a complete list of all the weaknesses in a human mind that
    you can exploit to your own advantage when trying to separate
    people from their money.

    You've probably heard of a lot of em but its nice to have em all in 1 place.
    Like a manual for all of the security holes in a person's decision making
    process. Probably quite a few you haven't heard of as well.

    Happy Blackhatting :cool:

    This is fantastic :)

    Thanks buddy!

    I find i encounter Wishful thinking — the formation of beliefs and the making of decisions according to what is pleasing to imagine instead of by appeal to evidence or rationality. the most in daily life.

    Very useful and succinct wiki on cognition and inherent biases! Wish I had found this before I spent all that time any money on my Psych. degree! LOL.

    If a good writer like Malcom Gladwell could write a book on all of them, I would buy each and everyone.

    I have never seen this list before, great share. Combining this list with some writing skills and the proper marketing = a lot of $$$

    How to hack a human brain? One day Google will put this one app in their Google Labs... once Microsoft release theirs!

    That's a joke (or is it? ;))
