Site Post 1: Subliminal Messaging & the Mozart Effect

Does anyone remember the Josie and the Pussycats movie? That entire film was a giant subliminal message. So was season three of Stranger Things. Non-stop talk about Coca-Cola and Burger King was one big marketing scheme. I can’t believe that subliminal messaging started way back in 1957, and in Fort Lee NJ no less! Subliminal messaging is definitely an effective tactic, BUT it is dangerous and unfair. In a way, you’re tricking people into buying goods by making them think they want/need them without their consciousness. As far as the Mozart Effect, I do believe that listening to classical music such as Mozart can increase your intelligence. After all, isn’t that why pregnant woman have their unborn babies listening to Beethoven and Mozart?

  1. The Mozart Effect is intriguing and I truly want to believe that it can increase your intelligence, but this is a false hope. I do believe to some extent that the Mozart effect can increase creativity, but this could be because I believed my art teacher at the time (placebo effect). I was always bad at art and drawing, but the classical music was relaxing and I enjoyed the class more when classical music was played. I also played the clarinet since third grade, so there could have been some hidden bias as well.
