  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July28Post.mp4 What does humor and hypnosis have in common? A very similar linguistic structure. Most people never think much about language. We learn it, we use it and that's that. But studying the structure of language can give you a huge advantage. One, because the structure of language IS the structure of thought. When you speak not only articulately but entertainingly, people will make a LOT of assumptions about you. Most of them subconscious. They'll assume, subconsciously, that your brain is as interesting as your language. And having an interesting brain will open a lot of doors. Doors into other people's minds, their thoughts, their dreams, and their futures. All brains have an attention span. Kind of like Lucy and Ethel while they were working for the chocolate factory. If you have no idea what that means, I Love Lucy was a TV show way back in the fifties. And one of the episodes is one of the BEST episodes of TV History, according to TV guide. Once upon a time there was no streaming movies, no Internet, only TV. And TV Guide was THE authority on all things TV. Anyhow, Lucy and Ethel found themselves working on a chocolate candy production line. The chocolate would go by slowly, and they'd have to take them off, quickly wrap them, and then put them back. If they went unwrapped, they'd both get in big trouble. Of course the chocolates started off slowly. Then it kept getting faster and faster. Pretty soon they were shoving the chocolates in their mouths to keep from getting into trouble. This is like most people's brains. People talk, and we see a kind of stream of ideas flowing by. Most people talk about pretty simple, mostly second hand ideas. So not only are they familiar, but they move by pretty slowly. But when you understand the similar structure between hypnosis and humor, you can have a lot of FUN with people. One trick is ambiguity. This is when one thing, a word or a phrase, can mean two different things. For words, this is the source off all playground riddles. Why did the boy study on the airplane? He was in high school. What starts with "e," ends with "e" but only has one letter? An envelope. What did the beach say when the tide came in? Long time no sea. But you can stretch out other ambiguities when speaking longer stories. Like when you use a bunch of pronouns, and it's not clear who they are referring to. Like the other day, I was in the library talking to the librarian and her cute friend. She was telling her how her sister went to see this psychic who had a lot of sexual energy. She was reading her aura and she said that you have a lot of potential sex in your future, but only if you pay attention to this. Then she looked at me and told me about how she started to find evidence of this kind of sexual energy everywhere. Then they both looked at me and smiled. And asked me if I wanted to know more. Of course I said yes. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/humor-brilliance/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July25Post.mp4 What's the difference between hypnosis and humor? Timing. The linguistic structures are the same. Ambiguities, reframing. You can use ambiguities to fade somebody's brain while telling them a bunch of somewhat disconnected stories. Ambiguities on the sentence level. Ambiguities on the structural level. You have three or four stories on the same kind of theme. Like overcoming some kind of social anxiety. You tell four stories all about people who overcame some kind of social anxiety. But by the time you get to the middle story, their brains are so utterly confused, they just give up. Especially when you use a deeply embedded quotes pattern. The first story is about a you talking to a guy. The second story is a story told to you buy that guy. Then in that second story, another guy is talking to another guy. By the time you get to the middle, nobody, except for you, has any clue what is going on. So in the middle story, with one ambiguous guy talking to another ambiguous guy, you quote one of the guys. And then YOU say something like this: And then he looked at him and said: And YOU tell the person you are talking to in real life whatever you want to say. Their brains will be so faded, you can look DIRECTLY at them, give them a ton of DIRECT commands, and they'll just nod. Um... uh... yeah... OK... Of course, later, when you finish all the loops, they'll forget ALL ABOUT that middle part. But those commands will be INSIDE their brain. This is essentially how covert hypnosis is used in therapy. Fade their brain, drop in a bunch of commands, and everybody lives happily ever after. All with TONS of layered ambiguity. Which story you are telling, who's saying what to whom, and sentence level ambiguities like "lack of referential index." The lack of referential index is a FANTASTIC party trick. You introduce a few people. Then later you refer to those same people but only with pronouns. So nobody knows WHO you are referring to. And if you set up the people, and what they are doing correctly and THEN refer to them with pronouns, you can use the quotes pattern to put some CRAZY things in the middle. For example: The other day I met this crazy girl at this bar downtown. She and her two friends were telling me about this bachelor party one of her friends worked at, lots of sexy strippers and customers. Then she looked and me and told me how she would always look directly at people and say: "You have no idea how much CRAZY SEX we are going to have!" "You have no idea of the secret sex tricks I know that can give you a four hour orgasm!" "Do you believe that?" Because you set it up with so many "interesting" people, and surrounded that middle part about sex with a whole slew of confusing pronouns, whoever you say this to will have a happily spinning brain. That's the COOL thing about all these linguistic patterns. You can put them together in some very clever ways. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/humor-brilliance/

  5. One of my favorite stories from science is the discovery of quantum physics. This has NOTHING to do with quantum physics itself, only HOW it was discovered. A bunch of the smartest scientists on earth were sitting around, trying to figure out a problem. They would heat up this hunk of stuff, and watch measure the heat curve as it cooled off. Each time they tried to explain what was happening, they got it wrong. They'd come up with a theory, figure out a way to describe that theory mathematically, and then repeat the experiment. If the heat-curve match their prediction, they were right. If it didn't they were wrong, and they'd have to come up with a different theory. Each theory was a "model." And when their model didn't work, they threw it away. This is VERY uncommon. Most people fall in love with their model. In fact, many people (even scientists) when they see the world doesn't match their model, they think the WORLD is wrong. This is one of the reasons why the world's economy is so messed up. Goofball economists are so IN LOVE with their economic models, they continue to NOT BE ABLE to understand what's really going on. But if you can DITCH your model if it's not working, you understanding pretty much anything is pretty simple. One way we get caught is confusing "descriptive" models and "prescriptive" models. Descriptive models is just watching what happens. Prescriptive models is when we think we know what SHOULD happen. If you try to understand human nature through prescriptive models, meaning you have an idea of how people SHOULD behave, and they don't behave that way, we goofy humans can be VERY frustrating. But if you just find the right DESCRIPTIVE model, and forget about how you think people "should" behave, we are pretty simple. So simple that it's easy to play with our brains. Especially when you understand that our language is based on a set of ASSUMPTIONS that most people aren't even aware of. If you speak and behave in a way that BREAKS those assumptions, people will have NO IDEA what's going on. Now, most of the time this happens when some lunatic comes up on the street and starts speaking gibberish. This creates a fear response. Because their WHOLE BODY is radiating "gibberish." This is very frightening. But when your non-verbal communication is normal and congruent, but your language is breaking the rules of expected grammar, THAT's when you can have some fun. Instant trances, goofy laughs, and wide eyes of excitement. All in seconds. Click Here To Learn More
