As you may be aware, on the Avatar Uncovered website there is a section called: ‘Assessment’.  In this section, you will find our analysis of Avatar based on various “models of assessment”.

One of the assessments is called The Bite Model, by world renowned cult expert – Steven Hassan.

You will also find that we have written a rather lengthly analysis of Avatar against this very model.

If you haven’t read it, you can find it here>>

I suggest you read through it in detail as it provides great insight into the various elements of control within Avatar.


What is the Bite Model?

Originally published in his 1988 international best-seller, Combating Cult Mind Control, by Steven Hassan – the BITE model has alerted hundreds of thousands of people to the systematic use of undue influence in totalist cult groups.

The BITE model has also been adopted by many scholars – ed.

The four components found in the Bite Model: Behavior Control, Information Control, Thought Control, and Emotional Control, and all of their specific sub-variables – name specific techniques and methods of influence, which can be used to analyze the healthiness or destructiveness of any relationship or group.

The model has proven effective in determining whether or not a person has fallen prey to undue influence.


How does Avatar fit into the Bite Model?

The Bite Model is one of four assessments we have used to assess Avatar against and it has been very helpful to see the extent of the control within this group.

If you haven’t read it yet, I think you will be quite amazed.  

Over the next coming weeks, I will be doing some videos discussions on the Bite Model and how Avatar fits into each of these components.

I hope you find it insightful!
