I'm not exactly rich but I'm not poor either and that sounds like too much money even to supposedly better yourself. I'm sure lots fell off and didn't go further but it sounds like too many of these people who did were well off but directionless and not very savvy Right? If I had all that extra money, I'd be using it for a good therapist and a great vacation each year, things that would actually help me be healthier. I guess they were lured by self-improvement at a time in their lives when they felt stuck or vulnerable. It's a program that tells them to check their critical thinking and logical beliefs at the door, so if they actually do that, they are already predisposed to accepting the pitch. They were told the program would make them successful at whatever they wanted in life, and they were the ones standing in their own way from that success. At some point, I imagine groupthink takes over. Plus the sunk-cost fallacy where they've already put so much money into it, they might as well put in more to reach that elusive goal because they're "progressing." Then there's the collateral. They used collateral from the early stages, though they weren't all as intense and creepy as what they wanted for DOS. 2 3 Link to comment
