  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov26Post.mp4 We silly humans have a hard time with cause and effect. Particularly when things are linked. But plenty of things can be mathematically linked, but have zero causality. A famous example is ice cream and sharks. During the summer, people eat more ice cream. During the summer, there are more shark attacks. So, you could create a positive correlation between the two. But, it would be silly that eating ice cream causes shark attacks. Like every time you bite into any kind of ice cream, some poor dude is ge
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov25Post.mp4 It's common, and fun, to have staring contests as kids. This is the one "sport" that is open to everybody. Sports, or any athletic competition is not. Any kind of educational competition is not. Even many games requires some basic learning and practice. A guy who's played a few dozen games of checkers against somebody who's never played isn't even. But staring contests are open to everybody. Sometimes they are planned. Sometimes they are spontaneous. And it's easy to "cheat." To stare into th
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov09Post.mp4 Effective copywriters can make a ton of money. And it's something you can do from pretty much anywhere. So it's a very, very desirable job for a lot of people. The idea is pretty simple. To understand human nature. To understand things like the seven laws of Cialdini. To understand the problems people have that products will alleviate. If you can combine this understanding with some clever and intriguing writing, you CAN make a fortune. Especially if you want to promote any kind of evergreen product.
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov08Post.mp4 One of the curious things about us humans is our self awareness. The concept is incredibly simple, but it's also extremely baffling. Neurologists and other scientists really have no idea what it is. We sort of know how to describe it, and we know when it's gone (when we're sleeping or passed out). But exactly HOW it works is a mystery. All we know is we are aware of our own thinking process. But this can make us think we have much more power than we really do. Being aware of something doesn't mean you can c
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov06Post.mp4 Humans come with a lot of pre-wired circuits. What's probably the most famous is Chomsky's theory of transformation grammar. Particularly the X-bar theory. Sentences have a specific grammatical structure. English is subject-object-noun. But this goes all the way down. Noun phrases, verb phrases, the way multiple adjectives connect with long noun phrases, etc. So when little kids are between the ages of zero and 2 or so, they are literally calibrating all these "switches." Once they calibrate all the sw
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct12Post.mp4 Feedback loops are critical. Not just for humans, for all living things. Even species require the necessary constraints of nature's feedback loop. For example, consider a human technique for self improvement. You have an objective in mind. Something simple, like playing a simple song on the piano. You look at the notes as your guide. You take your understanding of the notes, through your eyes, into your brain, and try to make your fingers move. If they move at the right rhythm and hit the right keys at
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept22Post.mp4 TV salesman are very charismatic, and very entertaining. One example is the guy from "Halt and Catch Fire." A fictionalized drama about the beginnings of the computer age. PC's, internet, web browsers, back when all that stuff was invented. But the main character that was the sales type was VERY stereotypically charismatic. When he spoke, he had tons of confidence, and unbreakable frame, and he spoke in very well calibrated, very beutiful metaphors. Similarly, fictional seducers are either one of two types.
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug13APost.mp4 The human mind is incredibly powerful. In many, many more ways that we'll probably ever understand. One way is how our memory works. Sure, for things like taking tests and remember names, our memory kind of sucks. But consider that it wasn't really meant to be a simple input-output device. It was meant to be a motivating device. A learning device. You saw somebody doing something, and you wanted to copy them. So you kept them memory as a guide, as you tried to get the same outcome. Since we're fo
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July21Post.mp4 One of the curious things about our brains is the difference between structure and content. Our brains are essentially pattern recognition devices. But most of the time this happens subconsciously. In the background. For example, imagine a bunch of ancient cavemen hanging around next to some tall brown grass. And in that tall grass was a lion sneaking up on them. Their subconscious is ALWAYS scanning for patterns and structures. Their subconscious would see the lion's hair mixed in with the tops of the gra
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July20Post.mp4 There's one structure that, if you start looking for it, you'll find this everywhere. Not only will you find this everywhere, but this simple structure is about as close to success strategy as you'll find. If not in and of itself, but a very necessary requirement to any kind of success. Money, sex, love, genuine social validation and status, etc. The structure involves delayed gratification. Not just for the sake of delaying gratification. But under an "acquired taste" structure. For example, suppose you h
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun23Post.mp4 One problem that pops up in plenty of places lack of communication. Even when this isn't consciously identified, it's the problem. A funny scene from an old movie that illustrates this is from the Blues Brothers. The two brothers showed up at a bar where they'd been hired to play. They were setting up and the bartender gave them each a beer and said it was on the house. So they kept drinking while they played. At the end of the night, they got the bill. Since they were expecting to be paid, (that had been h
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun20Post.mp4 Our instincts were calibrated WAY before our brains evolved. Which is good. Really good. Our instincts are essentially automatic compulsions to keep us doing things that are healthy, and avoiding things that are dangerous. One instinct that everybody struggles with is eating. Here's an interesting experiment you can try. Wait until you are really hungry. Like, really, really hungry. And fix yourself (or order) something absolutely DELICIOUS. And while you eat that delicious food, try to do some
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May20Post.mp4 If you are a fan of science fiction, you'll eventually run into the idea of a silicon based life form. The reason for silicon is it's kind of related to carbon. Now, why does life on Earth, and according to scientists, life in the rest of the universe made up of carbon? Not just carbon, but carbon, hydrogen and oxygen? Those three atoms have TONS of different ways they can link up together. Carbon has four valence electrons. What does that mean? That carbon can hook up with each one of those valence electro
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr18Post.mp4 A very common communication anxiety is what to say. You are going into a job interview, so you practice what to say. You want to walk across the room and talk to somebody interesting, and you wonder what to say. You've got a number, and you want to call, or text, and you wonder what to say. On the other hand, some people can get away with saying pretty much anything. When we focus only on the words, we miss a LOT of what's going on. In fact, words are only the surface level of much deeper communication that is g
  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr10Post.mp4 I used to work at this place where we had a Friday food contest. It started with the regular donuts on Friday. Like in many offices, everybody would take turns bringing in donuts. Sometimes people would bring in bagels. But somehow, this ended up in a competition. Everybody tried to outdo the previous weeks' offering. Breakfast sandwiches, various homemade ethnic food. One guy brought in his famous chili. Gotta admit, it was pretty tasty. He couldn't wait to tell us his secret recipe. One
  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr03Post.mp4 A very common trope in romantic movies is the guy or gal who "gets" the other guy or gal. This is the opposite of another common romantic movie trope. That when two people are getting closer and closer, one of them is TERRIFIED that the other person will find out who they REALLY are. And when this happens, it's over. These are two sides of the same coin. The coin of who we really are on the inside. The fear side is us being TERRIFIED of being "found out" and forever rejected. The best-case-scenario side
  17. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr01Post.mp4 The halo effect is a real thing. It's very superficial, but it's very real. In many ways, pretty people, both guys and girls CAN have it easier. So long as the content surrounding their halo effect is superficial, they will have a significant advantage. Why is this? When we look at pretty people, we get a very strong, very positive, very ancient instinctive feeling. A very ancient feeling that says, "I want that." Not just "that," but everything associated with "that." This is tied to beauty and you
  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar29Post.mp4 There are a lot of ways to leave a positive impression on somebody. Meaning you interact with them, the interaction ends, and you go your separate ways. The more you can leave a positive impression, the more they'll think about you. The more they think about you while they are away from you, the BETTER they'll tend to think about you. If you are a salesperson, and you leave a positive impression on them, as they are shopping around, they'll compare all other salespeople to YOU. The BETTER of an impression you leave,
  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar28Post.mp4 A long time ago I used to go to this Thai restaurant. They had a pretty good chicken dish, don't forget the specifics. Very spicy. I would always go there in the early afternoon. I liked to read the business paper while enjoying a leisurely lunch. Study all the stock and commodity charts. After the lunch crowd had thinned out. This was back when I was learning about a lot of covert hypnosis and NLP patterns. Now, a lot of "techniques" involve using patterns, etc. on waitresses. This isn't one of t
  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar26Post.mp4 A useful angle when selling anything is something called a "USP." Or, "unique selling proposition." This only needs to be presented as unique. Meaning even all the competition has the SAME feature, if nobody else is leveraging it, this is an option. So long as it SOUNDS unique, the customers will ASSUME that your product is the ONLY one with this feature. This is a copywriting way to leverage the "first to market" idea. You can be first to market with an actual product. Or you can be first to market with so
  21. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar24Post.mp4 According to anthropologists, language and conscious thought is why humans eventually took over the planet. Many other animals can learn, but humans can do so collectively. This means we can discover and idea, and share it with others. Once everybody has this idea, it becomes part of the "collective consciousness." This allowed humans to learn as a group. Even from generation to generation. Even while skipping a bunch of generations. This is one of the things that ended the dark ages, and opened up the e
  22. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar23Post.mp4 Dale Carnegie said the easiest way to become interesting TO others is to be interested IN others. This, of course, is one of those truism that needs some explaining. First of all, we would all LOVE for the "right people" to be interested in us. Gorgeous people, rich people, Hollywood producers, Venture Capitalists, etc. Nobody would like being followed around by a bunch of drunken homeless people because they found you so interesting. Another thing we'll need to figure out is HOW, specifically do we show our interest
  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar22Post.mp4 There's a lot of "tricks" in seduction. Perhaps the most famous, is the "instant connection" pattern. This has been copied and regurgitated over and over. It is basically when you are talking to somebody, either a romantic interest, or a potential customer. But somewhere in the pattern, you mention an "instant connection" with somebody. Like you are randomly going off on an "unexpected" tangent. And you say something like: "Have you ever felt an instant connection with somebody?" "Where you just fee
  24. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar06Post.mp4 A lot of things are acquired tastes. Like coffee and alcohol, for example. When I was a kid, my parents would make coffee in the morning. I'd never tasted it, so all I knew was the smell. I imagined it would be delicious. But once I took a sip, it kind of ruined it. I had an imagination of what it MIGHT taste like, but that was shattered by the awful taste. But then, I grew up and got the world famous coffee buzz. That's when I associated the taste with the effect. Now, it tastes good. Really
  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb27Post.mp4 Metaphors are fantastic. But they can also be extremely dangerous. They are useful when talking about common ideas that are pretty complicated. For example, let's say you saw a movie. And your friend asked about it. And you report that it "started strong" but then "kind of fell apart at the end." This a perfectly understandable metaphor. It describes a very common human experience. Of watching a movie (or TV show or book) that grabbed your attention from the beginning. But then as it went on, you
