Zablocki’s brainwashing formulation: Disorientation, Defective Thought, Suggestibility , and False Self

1.Absence of pre-motives: no pre-motives

2.Disorientation: Induction of irrational altered states of consciousness as the core technique in secuding people to give up their existing worldview.

3.Defective cognition: In the disoriented state essential to brainwashing, the person has a  significantly reduced cognitive capacity to evaluate the truth or falsity of worldviews with which he or she is confronted.

4. Suggestibility: As a result of externally induced disorientation and defective cognitive  capacity, the victim of brainwashing is highly suggestible; thats prone to accept his/her own ideas and worldviews which are recommended by the person or organization that has induced the defective cognitive thought.

5. Coercive or involuntry imposition of defective or false worldview: The above sequence of criteria for brainwashing results in the involuntry imposition of a defective or false worldview , which anyone in a rational state of mind would have rejected.

6. Coercive imposition of a false self: As a result of the brainwashing process, the person manifests a pseudo-identity or shadow self which has been involuntarily imposed upon him/her by brainwashing.

7.Deployable agency: The involuntarily imposed false self and defective worldview persist after the  brainwashing process has been completed and as a result the brainwashed person retains his commitment to the new self and worldview even when he or she is in contact with the group doing the brainwashing.

8. Exit Costs: It is extremely difficult for the person to later repudiate his new worldview and false self-conception because he or she no longer has the capacity to rationaly evaulate these choices.
