Why rhyming phrases are more persuasive

7 posts in this topic

Want to convince someone of something? Make up a rhyme. They may think it's cutesy, but they'll still believe it more readily than if it were stated plainly. At least until they are asked to think about it a little.

Hmm, let us argue against it:

This rhyming scheme is just a dream, I'm against it, know what I mean?

Now, is anyone persuaded against it?

I was sitting in front of the Jeremiah,

a-warming me plates of meat,

when there came a knock at the Rory O’Moore,

that made me raspberry tart beat.

I opens the Rory and there stands,

me one an ‘tother called Ted,

‘E says “I’m back from Australia”,

I says “I thought you was brown bread!”

‘E looked at me with his one mince pie,

his Jem Mace had an evil grin,

I thought to meself “He’s elephants trunk”,

I don’t dare let him in.

“It’s Ted or his pillar and post” I cried,

in a proper two and eight,

so I slammed the Rory O’Moore in his Jem,

and left im to his fate.
