There's a powerful technique in the Milton Model.
Of course, there are many, and this is but one.
It's called the, "I'm not going to tell you..." pattern.
It works because as soon as you utter those words, people's brains kind of turn down their defensive shields slightly.
So if you say something like, "I'm not going to tell you to buy this product."
It is a sneaky way to slip in the "buy this product" command.
But it's very useful if you add on a bunch of stuff after.
And that it seems like the stuff you add on after is the main part of the sentence.
It's kind of like a magic trick.
If you study magicians, they often to the "trick" part very early on in their routine.
Then they do a bunch of talking after.
If they can spit some pretty good game, the talking part is kind of a "mental cover" so you'll forget what happened before.
So when they do the "reveal" it will seem much more magical.
So when you use the "I'm not going to tell you..." pattern, it works the same way.
You put in the command directly AFTER the "I'm not going to tell you..." and then you add on a bunch of stuff that will give them a reason to do EXACTLY what you said you weren't going to tell them to do.
I'm not going to tell you to BUY THIS EBOOK, because I want you to decide for yourself whether you would like to significantly increase your charisma and seductive powers. After all, many people find they don't like having gorgeous women following them everywhere and begging for sex.
But you can also do this in a much subtler and more profound way.
You don't ever actually SAY, "I'm not going to tell you."
But you CREATE that feeling.
Whenever you approach somebody, either a romantic target or a customer, it's hard to do so and pretend you aren't.
If you are a guy, and you walk up to a girl in a social situation (or vice versa) it's pretty obvious what's going on.
It's even MORE obvious if you are a salesperson and you approach somebody browsing in your shop.
But there IS a way to approach WITHOUT any sales or romantic energy.
And then through VERY relaxed and VERY subtle conversation, TURN UP their desire (buying, romantic or otherwise).
And do so SO delicately they believe it is COMPLETELY their idea.
They will actually believe that they are SPONTANEOUSLY feeling buying or romantic desires.
For THEIR reasons.
Which means there will be very little, if any, internal resistance.
