Why Social Engineering Works? and targets to exploit

Just asking the philosophical question "why" Social engineering works and types of targets to exploit using social engineering.

Linked to my site because it would would not take everything inside here.
Feedback would be appreciated

The_Eccentric,

Its a nice post mate, well done and thanks for sharing.
I will also add that an SE attack can also be a good way of helping a company really understand its critical systems and valuable assets, as the perspective is different.
