Is it ever ok for someone to have their behavior modified with out their knowledge or consent?


Many organizations these days are using applied behavioral science to predict and to influence people's behavior. Such behavior change often takes place without the person's knowledge or consent. Advertisers do this and so do businesses through modern performance management systems at work. Are these behavioral influence/modification practices acceptable or ethical? If so, why? If not, why not?
