I love you dear bed! I do!
My son stopped by for coffee and shared the following story:
He and his team were to do a group presentation on Monday to his class on the impact of "social engineering". There are several members on Andrew's team. Six or seven - I can't remember.
When it's Andrew's turn - he goes up alone and announces his team did not show up. The class is feeling pity, murmuring and whispering. When your grade depends on the group presentation you want your team there.
Everyone on the team had a role.
Andrew starts his presentation - about ten minutes later, many questions are being asked by multiple students.
He answers many questions for a bit - then announces to the class that his team is there. Both the teacher and class were shocked - the team asked specific, pre-agreed questions and the non-team students joined in with similar questions.
No independent thought.
Andrew said "I feel guilty for lying to the class for ten minutes" but pfffttt.... he made his point.
Social engineering at work, and the power of influence...
Back to unpacking.
