If one finds themselves identifying with a character in a show, are they more likely to be easily
persuaded with possible concepts that the show could provide

Social Cognitive Theory

Television/movie/video game characters model behaviors and we learn from their outcomes
The cognitive sub process motivation is the most important here
We are motivated by what we expect the outcome to be and how likely/able the characters are
to experience the expected outcome
Along with motivation, self-efficacy is key
Self-efficacy is the perceived ability to behave or change behaviors
If people ate motivated so much by viewing healthier lifestyles and seeing people accomplish
goals on television, why is the obesity still rising?
