Curious Traits in Human Nature Ha: :
Made Possible Growth and Devel-
opment of the Great Mail
Order Houses.
(Copyright, 1917, Western Newspaper Union.)
A curious trait in human nature
makes itself apparent very frequently.
That is en inclination to {rust in the
unknown rather than in that with
which one is familiar. A person is
very apt to take a chance, even though
he may know that the odds are 100 to
one against him, instead of being satis-
fled with lesser rewards about whick
there is no possibility of doubt.
It is, possibly, the flaring up of the
ever-present gambling instinct but
there is something more in it than that.
There is in it the unexplained ten-
dency on the part of most people to
reach for the chimerical and ignore
the tangible and substantial thing
which is near at hand. Man is sel-
dom. satisfied with those things that
are within his grasp but is reaching
always for the unuttainable. Too of-
ten, he loses that which he might eas-
ily gain by blindly pursuing that whick
s always just out of his reach.
Why “Con” Man Thrives.
Coupled, in a way, with his faith in
the unknown is the tendency on the
part of so many people to place con-
fidence in a stranger in preference to
one who is known and has been tried
and proven. It is this tendency which
makes possible the operations of the
“con” man, the get-rich-quick artist,
the unscrupulous promoter and the ;
salesman of worthless mining stocks. |
The man who would not think of |
trusting Bill Jones, his next-door |
neighbor and fellow church member, |
will confidingly turn over his life's |
savings to a stranger who unfolds a |
tale of riches to be won. Bill Jones |
might talk his head off in behalf of a |
legitimate proposition without getting .
a dollar where the slick stranger with |
the worthless proposition can get thou- |
sands. |
It is these two tendencies which, ap- |
parently, are so widely prevalent
among all classes of people that have |
made possible the success of the great |
mail order houses in the big cities.
A knowledge of psychology is as im- |
| the loss.
portant to the mail order man as a
knowledge of business practices. He
plays upon these tendencies of man
to take a chance, to trust in the un-
known rather than the known, to place
confidence in the stranger rather thar
the friend.
Hope to Draw Prize.
Those who buy merchandise from a
mail order house are moved partly,
whether they realize it or not, by that
! trait in their nature which prompts
them to trust in the unknown rather
than in that with which they are fa-
miliar. They are hoping, it may be un-
consciously, that they will draw a prize.
They do not know what they will get,
for it is impossible for one to know
what he is going to get when he or-
ders merchandise from a picture and
a highly colored description in a cata-
logue. He is taking a chance on the
Buying merchandise from the local
merchant, on the other hand, contains
none of these elements of chance that
enter into the dealings with the mail
order house. When one buys a stove
from the hardware store in his home
town, he may get none of the thrills
that come from taking a chance but
he will get a stove that will last longer
and keep him warmer than the one
that he might get from the mail order
house and to the average individual,
these things are likely to be more im-
portant than the thrills.
Using Your Eyes.
When you buy from the local mer-
chant you sec the thing that you are
buying, you inspect it carefully, ex-
amine the workmanship and the qual-
ity of the material of which it is made
and in many cases you have the privi-
lege of testing it before paying for it.
You have not only your own eyes and
knowledge of values to rely upon, but
you have the advantage of the advice
of the merchant who has an expert
knowledge of the merchandise which
he is selling and who, in 99 cases out
of 100, can be relied upon to tell the
truth about it. Then you have the
guarantee that is backed not only by
the retail merchant, but in many cases |
by the manufacturer. If the article
which you buy does not prove satisfac-
tory after it is given a fair test, you
can take it back to the store where,
you bought it, in most cases, and get
your money back. The retailer may
get his roney back from the manu-
facturer but if he doesn’t, he stands
In any event, you are pro
Why a person will place his confi :
dence in a stranger rather than a
friend or will trust in the unknown
rather than in that which is tangible,
is something that is hard to under-
stand. Even the mail order house does |
not pretend to know why it is so but *
It accepts conditions as it finds them
and makes the most of the oppor-
tunities that they offer.
The man who believes all he says |
doesn’t always say all he believes.
