Script Details

If you wanted to teach your child about honesty, would you create a powerpoint presentation or would you tell the story of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf?”

You’d tell the story, of course…because stories work.

It turns out that the human brain is wired to respond to stories.

Facts and figures? Data and bullet points?

They only activate the language processing parts of the brain, where we decode words into meaning..

Using only these brain regions, comprehension and memorization take hard work and concentration.

But what about character-driven stories and emotionally charged narratives?

Stories activate multiple regions of the brain, including areas responsible for our senses, our motor skills, our emotions and our memories.

When we hear stories, our brain reacts as if what’s happening in the story is happening to us.

The feelings, sensations and emotions that a story generates are the keys to understanding and recall.

So the next time you need to persuade an audience, do what comes naturally. Tell a story.
