Nagging people to change their behaviour
Nagging. I’m sure there are quite a few people out there who have ‘nagging’ down to a fine art – like me. Usually, ‘nagging’ is seen in a negative light – but chin up people – there is finally a reason to be proud of your ‘nagging’ abilities.
I read this blog this afternoon about behaviour change in relation to environmental issues. Behaviour change appears to be a real challenge in environmental circles – particularly on a mass level – and will be one of the major barriers in achieving the government’s ambitious goals to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050. The author argues that people’s behaviours are more likely to be influenced by someone in their close knit circles than a celebrity like David Beckham. Apparently, ‘69% of men say they are most likely to be influenced by those that nag them’. I’m not saying another word…okay may be just one more sentence. If nagsters have ever needed a legitimate reason to hone their nagging skills – then here it is – make the most of it!
