  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec13Post.mp4 Some jokes are funny and hit you very quickly. These are the playground joked we've all heard as kids. Short riddles, that have something called a "phonetic ambiguity" in the answer. What did the beach say when the tide came in? Long time no sea/long time no see. These are best when heard, and not read. Since you hear the two meanings at once. It takes very little brain energy to understand the joke. This is why they are considered "cute" and more for kids. If you tried to tell this joke at a party hoping to impress a bunch of investors, it would not work. There are some jokes that are a little more stretched out. The kind that take a little bit more brain power to understand. Still based on a kind of linguistic ambiguity. Like the famous Groucho Marx joke: Last night I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know. Because the joke requires you go back in time slightly and recalibrate your understanding of the phrase, "in my pajamas," it's a slightly more "grownup" kind of humor. Much longer jokes are based on a continuous "funny feeling" in your brain. Well written comedies, for example, have a kind of low level comedy energy throughout. This is very hard to do. For every one comedy that keeps you in stitches, there are many more that are pretty lame. You can do the same thing with compliments. You can use the easy to think, easy to say, and easy to understand compliments. These are the kind that pretty much everybody uses. Nice shoes. Wow, you're really pretty! You have gorgeous eyes! But you can also give compliments just like you can give humor. Humor is for anybody within earshot. Compliments are directed at somebody. So the more effort you make in your compliment, the more they'll resonate in your target. The more personal your compliments are, the more they'll feel them on a much deeper level. These types of compliments can't be memorized. But they also send a much more powerful message to the receiver. That you see BEYOND what everybody else sees. Everybody can easily see, and appreciate their eyes, shoes, etc. But few are willing to take the time to really SEE them. The more effort you put in to noticing something about them, the more they'll appreciate you. Even better if you see something that falls under three important categories. One, is it is something they LIKE about themselves. Two, it is something nobody else has noticed. Three, it is something that makes them unique in some way. Hit all three, and they will NEVER forget you. Ever. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/cold-reading/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec11Post.mp4 One common problem both salespeople and social persuaders have is an inability to close. Sales people can give the most fantastic presentations ever, but when it comes to the close, they flounder. Guys and girls can talk a great game, but when it comes time to close, it goes sideways. Both people feel it. Both people know that SOMEBODY should say something. But both sit there, mumbling and suddenly avoiding eye contact. "So, uh, yea, wow, gee..." There are two ways to get around this common problem. One is to ALWAYS close. Close everywhere and often. This, however, is only a superficial solution. It's kind of like ripping a bandage off. It's painful, and you want to get it over with. This is the basic philosophy of number closing everybody who looks in your direction. It kind of, sort of, makes it SEEM like you are being confident. If you tell your buddies you number closed twenty girls in the past weekend, they'd be impressed. After all, most guys are terrified of number closing ONCE, let alone twenty times. But when you look at the stats, they aren't really that great. You ask twenty girls for their number. Fifteen politely decline. Four gave you a number only because they were too shy to say no. That one who was actually interested, was really only interested in the moment. You impressed her with your confidence, your focus, your lack of anxiety. But since that attraction was built QUICKLY, it dissipated quickly. So when you call her a day or so later, she might not even remember you. So, yeah, while number closing twenty girls a week is pretty cool from a confidence, brag to your buddies angle, it's pretty ineffective if you actually want to MEET people. If you want to slowly expand your social circle, and get to KNOW people, number closing everybody with a pulse is not the way to do it. Consider doing the OPPOSITE. This is counter intuitive. This is a LONG GAME strategy. This will build up your REAL confidence. The deep confidence that isn't temporary. The kind of deep confidence that naturally radiates from you when you are ordering a slice of pizza or asking the waitress for a refill on your diet coke. How can you BUILD this confidence? By practicing hit and run compliments. But not OBVIOUS compliments. Not compliments about how they look, or how pretty their eyes are. Compliments about their choices, their decisions. Compliments about THEM. That indicate you see them more deeply than everybody else. What will make these particularly powerful is if you deliver them with linguistic presuppositions. These will make them radiate in their mind much longer. Walk up, deliver the compliment, smile and keep walking. This will create a massive number of memories in your brain. Of people looking at YOU and wanting more. This will add up to a deep and REAL belief that people WANT you. This is something few people will EVER experience.
