  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb12Post.mp4 We humans have a ton of biases. Normally, we think these are bad. But only if they keep us from getting something. For example, if you tried to make some money in the stock market, you'd have put your biases on hold. This is very, very difficult. This is why very few people can invest successfully for a long time. Even deeper, most successful investors today rely heavily on these AI type "high frequency trading machines." For us humans, it's very, very difficult. Our emotions are ALWAYS with us. So whenever we try and do something, and our biases mess us up, we think they are an example of how broken or messed up we are. But that is a very dangerous mistake. As soon as you say something like "broken," this assumes there is a "non-broken" state. And if we can somehow return to that "non-broken" state, we'll be fine. But what if we just are the way we are? One idea is that we have all our emotions and biases and thinking algorithms based on the way life USED to be way back in the day. So it's not that we are "broken," rather we're out of calibration. This must means we need to figure out how to "manage" our unconscious biases. This is essentially what Jung meant when he said: "Unless you make the unconscious conscious, it will run your life and you will call it fate." He understood that we have a bunch of programs running deep in our unconscious. If we don't understand them, we'll keep trying things, messing up and blaming fate, or the gods, or our "broken-ness," or some other excuse. Lucky for us, our biases are easy to spot in others. This is exactly how advertisers keep getting us to buy things over and over. At the same time, we LIKE buying things. Buying things feels good. In many ways, we have a lot of overlapping biases. For example, let's say you're out shopping. The salesperson is trying to sell you something. You're not sure. But they keep at it, and eventually you buy this thing. But as soon as you make the decision, it feels good. Like we have a bunch of biases that take over when we make a decision. This makes sense. If we bought something, felt cheated, and were angry by the time we got home, that would be pretty bad. It would damage our ego, and we wouldn't get ANY use out of the thing we just bought. On the other hand, once our "post purchase bias" kicks in, it's the exact opposite. We feel good about the purchase. Our ego is intact. And we get a LOT of use out of this. The good news is that you can learn to SPEAK in this "overlapping bias" language. To get pretty much anybody to do pretty much anything, and FEEL GOOD after the decision.

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec17Post.mp4 Humans have tons of biases. Easy to see in others, hard to see in ourselves. Even the word, "bias" has negative connotations. When we point out, or refer to the biases in others, it's almost always negative. For example, we LOVE to point out the "confirmation bias" in others. Particularly when it comes to political arguments. Some even believe that our biases are "imperfections" in our thinking. Mistakes in our makeup. This is absolutely false. Everything about us is something that HELPED us in the past. They are only bad when we want something, and we can't get it. This just means they need to be understood. They were put there so we didn't HAVE to understand them. They were very tightly calibrated to an ancient environment. So we specifically didn't have to think. They are put there for OPTIMAL performance. And we still use our biases, to a large extent, today. For example, if you are shopping for bananas, you'll have a couple handy biases. Just the vaguely conscious thought of wanting to buy bananas will kick off a couple of "biases." One is you will have a "bias" for the produce section. Within that "bias" you'll have another "bias" for yellow things. In this example, we can see how biases are really filters. To help us find what we are looking for. Or to point out things that are dangerous. But if you still had your "banana bias" operating when you were looking for your keys, you wouldn't find your keys. (Unless they were shaped like a banana). To be sure, this is a pain. To have to take time to consciously understand things that were MEANT to be operating in the background. But that's the price we pay for living in an advanced world with all these advanced goodies. An even better way to understand and use biases is to leverage others. If you know the biases that are running on everybody else's brains, you can do some pretty spooky cool stuff. This is essentially what magicians do. And people who create optical illusions. They KNOW where our blind spots are. So they purposely create things to leverage our blind spots. So we see things that LOOK magic. You can do this with your words. Talk to people in a way that leverages their mental blind spots. Their biases. And they will think YOU are magic. They will truly believe you know everything about them. Which you can leverage anyway you like. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/cold-reading/
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov07Post.mp4 Fight Club was a fantastic movie. A lot of ideas about masculine energy, what happens when there is a lack of positive male models, etc. But there was one scene in particular that was interesting. After the two main characters had their first couple of fights. It gave them a much better sense of everybody around them. They would get on a bus, for example, and IMMEDIATELY scan the crowd, and figure out who they could likely beat in a fight, and who they might not. This is one of those movie scenes that is intuitively true. Anything "new" that you do will do this to you. Once I was painting my first condo, a long, long time ago. A friend casually remarked that having had that experience, of going through all the trouble of painting my own house, I would never look at another paint job the same way. And he was right. For a while after that, whenever I went into somebody's home, I found myself checking out the quality of their paint job. Our brains have tons of filters. It has to, otherwise we'd go insane. So it needs to sort for things that are important. And bypass all the stuff that aren't important. This is the same as the red car effect. When you don't notice all the red cars. And then you buy a red car, and see all the red cars. Before, you hadn't done anything to indicate that red cars are important. So you filtered them out. The process of buying a red car slowly re-calibrates your filters. Since you bought one, this means they are important. So you start to see them. Before I painted my own walls, the quality of a paint job didn't matter. But since I spent a lot of time, money, and effort, it became important. Of course, after a while, it kind of become unimportant again. But if you fight, or train consistently, you'll get the "Fight Club" response. Measuring people up will be second nature. This happens when you practice verbal fighting skills as well. So long as you do a little bit of practice every day, you'll have a completely different set of filters. You'll see the things people are hiding behind their words. You'll start to notice the loud obnoxious people who are really cowards on the inside. Not just from a theoretical standpoint. But from an intuitive, deep knowing standpoint. You'll also see the opposite. The seemingly shy, quiet types that you know have rock solid self confidence and self esteem. And once you learn how to read people the way they REALLY are, not just the way they are projecting themselves, YOU will be radiating a much different kind of energy. A much more powerful kind of energy. A much more attractive kind of energy. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/
  5. The Invisible Gorilla Paradox: https://mindpersuasion.com/the-missing-gorilla-paradox/ https://soundcloud.com/mindpersuasion/the-invisible-gorilla-paradox https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept23Loop.mp4
  6. We humans have a lot of biases. Most of them are widely known. Like confirmation bias, for example. We tend to find things in our environment that verify what we already believe to be true. Or we watch TV news that matches our pre-existing outlook. However, one thing many people don't take into account is why these are called "biases." If you say somebody is "biased," that is a negative label. Nobody strives to be "biased." So the general idea when thinking in terms of human "biases" is they are "errors" in thinking. But are they? When you go to a new school, or work at a new company, or move to a new neighborhood, confirmation bias works in your favor. The typical process of "making friends" specifically means finding people with whom we share similar ideas and beliefs. If you are a Mets fan, for example, you wouldn't make any friends with Yankee fans. In this case, these "biases" are not really "biases." They are "friend making strategies." Or what if you went into a pizza place, and looked up at the extensive menu. One way to describe what you were doing would be, "trying to find something that looks good." But HOW, exactly do you do that? If you were to explain to an alien the process of "finding something that looks good," how would you describe it? You look up at all the choices, quickly imagine (based on whatever experiences you have in your brain) which one is best. Without having any kind of "biases" that would be impossible! Some people have horrible brain conditions where they have amnesia after a certain point. Usually due to an accident. (This was the plot of the Adam Sandler move, "50 First Dates") What if your brain couldn't store any food memories? What if every single time you ate anything, it was always the first time? You could never guess beforehand what was good, and what wasn't. "What's that? Raw broccoli covered in wasabi-anchovy sauce? Sounds interesting! Lemme try some!" That would suck! Luckily, our brains are filled with sorting techniques (sometimes called "biases") that help us make effective decisions. However, there IS one thing that will KEEP you from making effective decisions. And that is not having an outcome. Deciding what to do ONLY makes sense if you have an OUTCOME. Then you can decide what to do to get you there as quickly as possible. When you are moving toward something YOU want, your biases can be your best friend. Learn More: Seven Disciplines
