Cialdini’s Theory of Influence

Cialdini’s theory of influence is based on seven key principles: reciprocity, commitment and consistency, social proof, authority, liking, scarcity, unity.

Let’s take a closer look at the principles that guide the human behaviour:

  1. Reciprocity: If you give people something — a free sample, an invitation, a pleasant experience, useful information, etc. — they will feel obligated to give you something in return;
  2. Commitment and consistency: People like to be consistent with the things they have previously said or done;
  3. Liking: People prefer to say yes to those that they like;
  4. Scarcity: We want more of things that are less of;
  5. Authority: People will follow credible knowledgeable experts;
  6. Social proof: People will look to the actions of others to determine their own;
  7. Unity: People identify themselves with others.
