Especially in the last century, we are surrounded by various forms of media from TV to newspapers. We enjoy spending time on these platforms, being able to collect more than enough information in any field we are interested in, or acquiring information about the world news. However, we never question their accuracy instead we choose to blindly believe. In this article, we are going to focus on the Television and its impact on the human psychology as well as how it is used to manipulate people.
One day, two men named Philo Farnsworth and Charles Francis Jenkins did a huge contribution to the world history.

Psychologists believe we are being hypnotized while watching TV.
There is a deep psychology of persuasion behind the media’s messages and it is a very powerful tool to shape the way people think, feel and act. The media gives us the facts government wants us to know, and not telling us the facts they don’t want us to know. Nowadays our society is shaped and controlled by the media that is mostly unconsciously and it is very difficult to understand and accept the influence of media has in people. Psychologists also agree with this, they suggest the idea that we are being hypnotized while watching TV, or, while spending time on the Internet. Being hypnotized is an important factor because your unconsciousness is now opened and is available for any source of information to enter, with or without you being aware of it, and at the moment when you allow these informations to spread to your inner mind, it can also have an impact in your future actions and the way you think. This is about watching series or the news for an hour, and imagine how many hours we’ve spent in front of the TV. Now think about it, are you really you? Or, are you and your actions controlled by media? Are you someone else’s puppet? Are you really independent?
Are you really independent?
Question everything, before blindly believing!
