Are you easily influenced by the media?

I admit that I fantasize about a different life from time to time, and when I do, I wonder where I get these ideas. Does it come from the media/movies? I'm sure this has contributed a lot to my fantasies. Do you get easily influenced by the media/movies?

Yes i do get a little influenced by media because everyone of us is attracted to some particular things about the media which shows that they are doing their job well. Their aim is to attract many people so that they can use their channel would be number one. I was attracted more by the commercials when i was a kid. But later i realized that nothing comes easily in life and if it does then it's like a coincidence or something strange to me. Cheers!

All things that we hear or see influences us, many time without us being aware. This being so the Media certian does have a hand in our thinking.

My niece easily influenced by media wherein she was able to learn just because of the cartoons that are educational. And now she has lots of quotation that she expressed like "practice makes perfect", "it is not about winning it is about having fun" and other more.

It would be beneficial if she understands what it means.

Nope, I went to university in Europe and a big part of the education there was to question everything the media feeds you. It was hard in the beginning, but you get used to it, and these days I am very skeptical of the media to be honest. I see that as a good thing though!

Yes, I am skeptical of the media too, but there are times when I am day dreaming about a handsome guy or something and realize that I created them by the influence by movies etc. I need to learn to stop that.

Yes, I agree too... and what 'better' means is based on our influence from the media too.
