This week, Dr. Rick Steele’s “From the Associate Dean’s Desk” entry on the SPS blog, SignPosts, is entitled, “The Power of Suggestion.”
“She wanted a boyfriend in the worst way, but the cards seemed to be stacked against her. She had frizzy red hair, wore floor-length peasant dresses, and was a little odd looking, even by the standards of college students in the early 1970s. And she was shy and socially awkward. [….] I can’t recall her name any more, and I sincerely hope she has long since forgotten mine, but for the purposes of this essay I shall call her Juliette.”
In this column, Dr. Steele desires to illustrate “how cautious those who hold the souls of others in their hands must be in exercising their power.” “[T]hose who lack such caution, and who manipulate the vulnerable for their own gratification or amusement, turn out to be just as weak as their “victims”—though differently so.” To read more about Dr. Steele’s experience with Juliette that taught him this valuable lesson, read his full post by clicking here: http://bit.ly/1Qg59uU.
