Serious question: Why are women so easily manipulated by marketing and advertising?
IMHO females are far more easily manipulated by marketing and advertising than males. I'm not saying males are not capable of being manipulated, but in terms of especially consumer products and consumerism in general, females IMHO seem to be far more easily manipulated. Why is this the case?

Females are trained to manipulate their physical appearance to better their lives.

Once adept at doing so, it only becomes natural for them to manipulate and be manipulated by their environment in an effort to better their own lives as well.

Because they are more what is known as 'other' directed.

More concerned with keeping up with the 'Smiths' & 'Joneses.'

I don't think they are manipulated as much as going with the one that tells them what they want to hear. They have very selective hearing and will easily discard anything that doesn't agree with their point of view and support whatever supports their POV. Then if it doesn't work they can blame it on the one who lied to them.

It's because they are predominately extroverted.

Extroverted men are just as easily influenced by
their environment.

I imagine that it served to solidify and strengthen
the group-consciousness throughout our history.

Re: Serious question: Why are women so easily manipulated by marketing and advertising?
Women evolved to seek out security and safety for themselves and their kids, and that's what the adverts use as their hook.
Comfort means safety and security and that often leads to more kids, its what adverts promise women who prefer to be given something rather than earn it if given a choice.
