It is my job to make people want to buy something or do something that without my prompting they might not otherwise consider. Or at the very least, steer them in the direction of my client over the competitor that they might have already been considering. What's great about the internet now is that you can really make advertising & social engineering blend by advertising under the guise or scientific research and studies, or through blog posts, or viral marketing. Advertising something without people even really knowing that what they are seeing/reading is part of a propaganda campaign. The best s.e.'s are marketers IMHO.

Thanks for the response.
You can look at and analyze almost any single social interaction and whether it is a conscious effort or not by the participants, you will see that some form of SE is taking place at all times.
