  • 4 What do you see as the possible defects in the Devil’s Advocate? Adapted from AdPrin.com Write your ideas. Then click this slide for the evidence-based findings.

  • 6 Alternatives to the Devil’s Advocate authentic dissent - When people are arguing for what they believe. The group realizes that an authentic dissenter might change, whereas there is no hope for this with the DA. The role does not protect the people playing as Devil’s Advocates – they became unpopular. Authentic dissenters also unpopular, but people respect them for their courage. 5
  • 7 Authentic dissent Those with authentic beliefs do a better job in arguing their positions than do those who are merely assigned to the role. Authentic dissenters have been found (in experiments) to get people to focus more on opposing thoughts than supporting ones - thus more change. Adapted from AdPrin.com6
  • 8 Multiple Anonymous Authentic Dissent (MAAD) Multiple Anonymous Authentic Dissent (MAAD) involves asking experts (e.g., project group members) to act as dissenters. Each person independently describes all perceived defects in a proposal. They send them to an assembler who distributes a report. Each person assumes that each objection has merit, and develops ways to improve the proposals. The suggested improvements are summarized and appropriate revisions are made in the advertising proposal. For more information see Persuasive Advertising p 287-9. 7
  • 9 Based on this exercise, write a small application step for yourself, and set a deadline, preferably within one week. If you are working with someone else, share your application plan and the results of your application. For example, on your next group task, request the group members to try MAAD.
