It inspired a kind of mystery...

mysteries usually have rewards if you solve them so...

I came hoping that I would be rewarded with power or amazement...

but before I could finish reading the opening post I realized that I had been tricked...

and because I was tricked I felt slightly nervous...

but knowing that it was not threatening...

my nervousness invoked the feeling of humor...

and I was amused by it so...

I felt obliged to reciprocate...

The end.

But unfortunately it back-fired bigly because now I know without a doubt I'm a dare devil and it feels great.
That's what I was going for! First I implant the notion that you've already decided to click on it...then to make it more attractive I turn it into forbidden fruit...and then I apply to your ego by making it dangerous and not for the weak and ineffectual.

There's probably a thousand more steps between each feeling but those are the ones I can identify.

The mind is a complex thing. idk...

Yes?

The boss came in the office. I panicked and clicked somewhere, ended up here.

I looked at the title and though Nah I'll leave that one then looked again and saw someone had replied so thought, ah maybe it is worth checking out just to see what they are replying too.

And fell into the net.

You know it's cruel to hold a carrot on a stick in front of a donkey and curiosity - well cat's beware.

The worst click bate is in the Adverts that we see on site's not only ATS, thing's like Have you seen how this star or that star look now which attract the morbid curiosity in the small part of our brain's, we all fall for it and if we did not then the advertising industry simply would not exist - at least to the size it is today - then again perhaps we would then have far better politician's in all country's - or just maybe worse?.
You're right. Especially those "You'll be SHOCKED to see what (random child star) looks like now!" or "(Random celebrity) gone too soon!"
And who are these people who actually buy whatever it is they're selling?

"Do not press this button"...
...click..." Oh!"

"What happened?"


"A sign lit up saying Please do not press this button again."

It wasn't the title...it's YOU! I met you last summer and have been infatuated ever sense.
I know you won't remember me but I felt compelled to tell you.

Of course I remember you! Your excessive magnificence has made it impossible to forget you...not that I would try to.

Because whenever I open ATS, Inreview all the “new” links on the “live” page. Titles are irrelevant to me...

I clicked on this thread because I knew it was click bait and I wanted to confirm it was click bait.

Confirmed Click Bait.
