  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov20Post.mp4 A very good "meta strategy" is based on the golden rule. To treat others the way you would like to be treated. This idea has been around for a long time. It's so common, it sounds childish and even ineffective. It's often put together with similar sounding thoughts like "turn the other cheek." But it can be useful, but ONLY if you understand it and calibrate it. For example, the phrase "you gotta spend money to make money" is absolutely true. At the same time, it's far from guaranteed. You might even s
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct15Post.mp4 Being nice is fantastic. But being nice is also a terrible strategy. One is when niceness is a choice. This is the good nice. This is when you have power over others, or relative status, and you go out of your to NOT be a dick. This is the kind of nice people appreciate. The cop who lets you slide even though you were speeding. The security guy who lets you into the expensive seats even though you don't have a ticket. The waiter or waitress who secretly tells you the daily special tastes like crap.
  3. Humans are inherently scared and lazy. Many historians describe human history as a story of a scared and lazy people doing everything they can to make life easier and safer. Most of the time, we humans don't do things unless we have to. Unless our backs are forced against the wall. At the same time, humans are locked into the law of averages. Meaning there is NO guarantee that if our "collective" backs are pushed to the wall, then ALL OF US will survive. All that's needed is a FEW OF US figure something out. History is filled with these long trends called "Ma
  4. Linguistic presuppositions are a very powerful grammatical structure. They are when you "hide" things inside of a sentence. Kind of like covertly slipping small ideas into people's brains. For example, consider this sentence: "Linguistic presuppositions are powerful." If I just said that on its own it would be easy to disagree with. You could say, "No they aren't." But I could take that same idea and hide it in a sentence. For example: One of the reasons linguistic presuppositions are so powerful is because they let you control other people's thinki
  5. A very common question when attempting to persuade is wondering what to say. Somebody has an idea of what they want from somebody else. And they imagine that outcome is going to come as a result of a verbal interaction. You SAY something, they take those words into their brain, and respond by DOING or SAYING the thing you WANT them to do or day. Most of the time this is exactly how it works. Even when ordering a beer from a bartender. Or asking for time on the street. The structure is the same. Step one, get their attention. Step two, say whatever i
  6. Everything we do has deep reasons and surface reasons. And not from a metaphysical sense. From a purely biological, scientific sense. On a very deep level, we are driven by instincts. Every single thing we do is it satisfy one or more combinations of instincts. Hunger is the easiest to understand. Because it involves taking something physical that we can see, touch, and smell. And through the process of eating, or satisfying our deep hunger instinct, we take that STUFF from OUTSIDE of our body, and put it INSIDE of our body. And while it is INSIDE our bo
  7. There are two very basic ways to get somebody to do something. And there are two basic reasons why we all do things. To INCREASE our state, by moving toward something positive. Or to INCREASE our state, by moving away from something negative. When thinking about persuading others, you MUST use their reasons. A very common technique of persuasion is "features and benefits." Where you list all the features, or the positive aspects of whatever you are persuading them to do. The benefits are the REASONS why they are "good things." One "feature" can have MANY
  8. When you were a kid your mom was worried about you hanging out with the wrong crowd. All moms are worried about their kids hanging out with the wrong crowd. Because we tend to pick up "bad habits" that way. A few decades of data show this to be true. The idea of nature vs. nurture is an old one. Take the idea that wealthy people have more books in their houses. Which of these come first? Does their desire to read books give them knowledge (from the books) and then they use that knowledge to make money? Is the desire to learn things the SAME knowledge tha
  9. Generally speaking, having a long game is better than short game. For example, people who are CEO's of big companies can generally out plan politicians. CEOs can execute plans that take 5-10 years to play out. Politicians, on the other hand, are always focused on the next election cycle. If you've ever watched movies about chess, one trait of good players is how long of a game they are playing. A very common idea is that one player makes a move, and the other laughs, because it seems on the surface to be a silly move. But then it turns out that "silly move" was ac
  10. One of the most common, yet least understood idea is cause and effect. On a very basic, scientific level, it's not so clear. There is an idea of entropy, or "disorder" of any system. The second "law" of thermodynamics is that entropy will always increase. The reason "law" is in quotes is that second law of thermodynamics is not quite a law. It's not something that can be mathematically derived. It's just something they always see happening, and they assume always WILL happen. The idea that as "time" goes on, the "entropy" or disorder of a system will increase
  11. When I was a kid my brother had a pretty cool dog. He loved to run outside. Whenever he would see me or my brother putting our shoes on, he would get excited. He made the simple association in his doggie brain that "putting on shoes = going outside." Pavlov, of course, is famous for doing experiments on dogs. Getting them to salivate when he ran bells. This is also the principle behind anchoring in NLP. Create an emotion, set an anchor, and that emotion is connected to the anchor. If the anchor was set correctly, every time you fire it after that, then t
  12. Once when I was very young, my dad and I were watching our dog run around the back yard. The dog got near a small apple tree. My dad remarked that he didn't want our dog to get a taste of the apples. At the time, I had no idea what he meant. But later I did. An apple tree, to a dog, is just a regular tree. And since dogs don't generally eat trees, they don't think of an apple tree as anything special. But this particular tree was pretty small. Small enough so the dog could reach some of the apples. My dad was worried that if the dog ate one of the a
  13. There’s a saying in NLP that you can’t not communicate. Meaning that everything you do, conscious or unconscious, verbal or non-verbal, is a kind of communication. You are always transmitting SOME type of information. On a deeper level, you can say that we can’t not PERSUADE. Communication requires two people. Even if those two people are imaginary people living inside your head. Any data that is transmitted from one person to another is done for a REASON. That reason is to change the state of the receiver. Sometimes this is a conscious intention, someti

  15. Why are some people luckier than others? To understand, we need to define what kind of luck we're talking about. If ten people are looking for one hidden item (at a party or whatever) whoever finds it will be "lucky." And if you repeat this "experiment" a kajillion times, the number of "lucky" people will average out, so long as some people aren't better "lookers" than others. But what about the kind of luck that involves catching lucky breaks? There's a pretty common idea of actors getting "discovered" in Hollywood were just minding their own business. But is tha
