The Influentials August 12, 2011 - Posted By: Michael
The idea of The Influentials is that critical mass for ideas and products come from one in ten Americans who are “influentials.” A great example of this is the Jones Family in the mediocre-but-thought-provoking movie The Joneses. You can identify Influentials through 11 questions.
These 11 questions have successfully predicted the foreman of my last few juries. The questions are:
How many of you have attended a public meeting on town or school affairs?
How many of you have written or called a politician at a local, state or national level?
How many of you have served on a committee in a local organization?
How many of you were an officer of a club or organization?
How many of you have attended a rally or speech or protest?
How many of you have written to the editor/called a live broadcast to express an opinion?
How many of you were active in a group trying to influence public policy or government?
How many of you have made a speech?
How many of you have worked for a political party?
How many of you have written an article for a magazine or newspaper?
How many of you have held or run for office?
