https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan18Post.mp4 Language is both extremely powerful yet something we humans rarely think about. It's one component of our powerfully imaginative brains. It can be thought of as a hallucination transmission device. You have an idea, you put words to that idea, and that same idea is now in somebody else's brain. That simple concept, of thinking of an idea, and transmitting that idea to another human may well be the driving force that grew our brains. Between two million years ago and now, our brains tripled in size. Thought and language may have been the driving force. How so? Humans are hierarchical. The higher you are up the ladder, the more sex you get. The more sex you get, the more babies you make. Those babies will have the very same traits that got YOU up that hierarchy ladder. This makes perfect sense if we imagine that having the best ideas, and describing those ideas was a key component of social hierarchy for the past couple million years. Even way BEFORE we invented language. Even chimps, whom we split with six or eight million years ago live in a tight hierarchy. And just like us, the higher a chimp is up the ladder, the more sex he gets, and the more babies he makes. And unlike gorillas, whose sheer size determines status, chimps rely more on their wits. They behave in very clever, and very long game strategizing ways. So it's easy to imagine how proto humans a couple million years ago (four million years AFTER we split from chimps) would win the hierarchy contests by having the BEST ideas. Today, those ideas are expressed with words. Words and thoughts are not generally thought to be related. The "art" of expressing your thoughts with well chosen words is NOT something most people are skilled in. Everybody has plenty experiences poorly expressing fantastic ideas. But it is something you can practice. And like anything else, the more you practice, the better you get. This is what Voltaire meant when he said one of his most famous quotes: "Give me ten minutes to talk away my ugly face, and I'll bed the queen of France." This is TRUE confidence. One that does not care about looks. One that says let me talk, and I can talk my way into ANYTHING. This can be applied to conversations to make sales or to make anybody dream about you. But this can also be applied to the written word. To get people salivating over WHATEVER you are writing about. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/hypnotic-copywriting/
https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov24Post.mp4 One major paradox of human thinking is the difference between cause and effect. Everybody and their sister has heard or said the phrase, "correlation doesn't mean causation." This means we all are both fooled by this and skeptical of this. Evolutionary psychologists believe this is a function of survival. Our brains evolved to be quick, but not accurate. Everything cost something, and our brains aren't any different. The cost of having a very fast brain is that many of our assumptions are incorrect. Turns out that thinking quickly is much more important than thinking accurately. So even today, this cause-effect mystery messes us up. For example, you see a guy talking to a girl. The girl is attracted to the guy. The guy is attracted to the girl. Attraction happens subconsciously, automatically. But we don't like that idea. We like the idea of being able to CONSCIOUSLY create attraction. Of saying the right things in the right order. Kind of like we practice for job interviews. It feels they same. They have something we want. And in order to get it (a number, some affection, a job) we've got to say the right things. Only in a job interview, the words we say go through a much more objective filter in the other guy's brain. Since they are hiring for very objective reasons. Some people hire for emotional reasons, and this rarely works out. Nepotism, because the candidate is hot, etc. Objectively hiring people tends to work much better. But what about in social situations? A common mistake in any kind of consciously learned "game" is by reversing cause and effect. A guy is confident, and he's talking to a girl. His subconscious perceives that she's attracted him. Her subconscious perceives he's attracted to her. This fantastic and unconscious feedback loop creates a good feeling in both. They both sort of know the other person likes them. And they both sort of know they like the other person. This attraction feedback loop is the CAUSE. The EFFECT is the words they are using. The mistake comes when we think the WORDS are the cause, and the attraction is the effect. This is a very natural and common mistake to make. Most people ONLY think about the surface level language. Most people are unaware of the emotions and subconscious communication going on beneath the surface. If you only focus on the top, you'll HAVE to play the numbers game. Keep talking to people and HOPE you get lucky. Or, you can learn to speak subconsciously. Covertly. Hypnotically. And CREATE attraction at will.
