Welcome to the Shyster Club – Frieda Knezek
Welcome to the Shyster Club:
Presenter: Frieda Knezek
Scammers, magicians, hackers, mentalists… they’re all members and they’ve all mastered the same tool: social engineering. It’s the art of not only manipulating people so that they give up something they normally wouldn’t, but often making them love you for it. In this workshop we’ll cover how you can use the psychology of social engineering to create more complex characters, how the cycle of social engineering can help add fresh twists to your plot, and how to exploit the four main “backdoors” of your characters’ brains to help take your readers on the emotional ride they crave.
