Her most famous contribution is the model of the spiral of silence, detailed in The Spiral of Silence: Public Opinion - Our Social Skin. The model is an explanation of how perceived public opinion can influence individual opinions or actions.Elisabeth Noelle was born to Ernst and Eve Noelle in 1916. First Elisabeth went to several schools in Berlin and then switched to the prestigious Salem Castle School, which she also left one year later. She earned her Abitur in 1935 in G ttingen and then studied philosophy, history, journalism, and American studies at the Friedrich Wilhelm University, and the K nigsberg Albertina University. When she visited Obersalzberg, she by chance had an encounter with Adolf Hitler, which she later called "one of the most intensive and strangest experiences in her life."
