the decline of the English Language and other frivolities. 100% jargon free.
A Business Insider "Most Influential" blog.
I love my daily dose of cynicism. It helps me realize that I'm not the only one. In advertising, we're continually put in double-bind situations. This is from Wikipedia:A double bind is an emotionally distressing dilemma in communication in which an individual (or group) receives two or more conflicting messages, in which one message negates the other. This creates a situation in which a successful response to one message results in a failed response to the other (and vice versa), so that the person will be automatically wrong regardless of response.At one time, double bind environments were used to explain mental illness in children. It would apply, I would argue, to creatives as well.
