Absolute Priming

A very common technique to try prime us into not adding a diverse or dissenting view is to use the word “absolutely”. This is a great sales technique, is very hard to rebut and seems to have been adopted by people that are trying to impress us or win us as a friend.

I see it more as a swear word and would prefer people refrain from using it in my company.
Nothing wrong with simply saying “yes” or “no”.
