Warning & Threats

Warnings and threats are commonly used to scare people into changing behavior. When you induce fear in an animal, the most common response you will see is freezing or fleeing; fighting, not as much. And so, humans are the same. Research shows that warnings have limited impact on behavior because humans tend to shut down and try to eliminate negative feelings when scared. 

Rationalizations and avoidance are some common reactions to fear-inducing messages.
