Answer to Question #52882 in Other Other for Haruka
The human frontal cortex is responsible for planning and thinking about the future and fear therefore stimulates an anticipatory mechanism. It is during this vulnerable state that one seeks out personal preservation (Stiff & Mongeau, 2003 p-117).
For fear to be effective in terms of it being used as a persuasive tool it should be subtle, this means it should neither be too high or too low, It should be just enough to elicit a reaction (Miller, 1963 p-117-175). In order for the message to be more convincing you should ensure that in flight situations the escape route should be more appealing as compared to all the other alternatives (Bostron, 1996 p- 330-375).
An example is of a fear arousing message is the warning on tobacco packets which gives a consequence in case you smoke the tobacco. In most cases the warning is meant to instill fear by outlining the health risks that may result from consuming the product so that it persuades individuals not to smoke the tobacco.
