  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec30Post.mp4 There are three very simple, yet powerful ideas, that, when put together, will make all the difference. The first one is imagined to be good, but is really bad. The second and third are thought to be neutral, but are, in really, utterly fantastic. The first one: That is the idea of SHOULD. Most everybody has an idea of what other people SHOULD do. This is the source of all frustration, as the Buddha once said. Thinking somebody SHOULD do something, and then they don't, is frustrating. You learn a pick up line or some game, and you are told it's certain to work. So you have an intention in mind. You have a fantastic opener, witty reframe, or some other conversational strategies. You are certain they SHOULD work. But they don't. Because you were EXPECTING them to work, and they didn't, you are now angry. You actually feel CHEATED. You believed they SHOULD work so much, you started to BELIEVE you were ENTITLED to what you thought SHOULD happen. But here is TRUTH. Nobody, including you, wakes up in the morning and plans their day based on what other people thinks they (you) SHOULD do. People do things because they WANT to. Not because other people think they SHOULD. Accept this hard truth and you'll be miles ahead of everybody else. The next two are easier, much easier to understand and accept once you get rid of any "should" based expectations. And that is everybody has UNLIMITED desires. This is a fundamental assumption in basic economics. Our mind-body systems are essentially walking, talking, breathing, desire generators and desire acquisition systems. Just look inside your own brain. All the things you've wanted, and gotten in the past. The things you want and hope to get in the future. This is the second idea. What's the third idea? This is kind of related to the first, our idea of what other people SHOULD do. And this is every single person, including you, including me, LOVE our own ideas. Way more than anybody else's ideas. This is why we get frustrated when other people don't do what we think they SHOULD do. After all, you've spent your time practicing those goofy openers. Those stories that everybody on the Internet said are GUARANTEED to work. So before you try them out, that idea of what you think SHOULD happen is SO FANTASTIC. So FANTASTIC it fills up your whole brain. But if you step back and see this from an objective standpoint, you are trying to IMPOSE your reality on a complete stranger. Everybody is competing by out-should-ing each other. This means NONE of our desires get out of our brains, let alone described in any articulated way. So, flip the script. Turn OFF your ego-based "should" ideas. And ask them about their DESIRES. This will make you stand out above EVERYBODY. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/desire-builder/
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec07Post.mp4 One of the coolest ideas, in my option, about the big bang is the idea of time and space. Meaning that time and space itself expanded after the big bang. For example, imagine a balloon, existing as a tiny speck. Then the balloon quickly inflates. And suppose there are a bunch of self aware, really tiny societies living on the surface of the balloon. So long as the balloon will continuously expand (like they think the universe is) every society will think THEY are the center of the universe. No matter which point of view you take, you'll look at all the other societies and see them as ALL going further away from you. At the same time, EVERYBODY started at that same tiny point. So everybody is expanding away from everybody else. AND everybody has a legitimate claim on being the center of the universe. One of the biggest confusions within our self-aware monkey brain is correlation and causation. For example, say something happened a long, long time ago. But nobody remembers it, since it was so long ago. And everything that happens TODAY is an "effect" for that thing long, long ago. This is one of the reasons we confuse causation for correlation. If event A causes events B, C, D, and E, then B, C, D, and E will all be correlated. But if you don't remember or know about A, then trying prove anything OTHER than correlation between B, C, D, and E will be futile. Even WORSE is everybody will have their own pet theories of HOW B, C, D, and E are related. But since nobody remembers A, they'll all be CLOSE but not entirely correct. Close enough so they think their idea is the RIGHT one. But not able to prove anything, so everybody else can have a REASON to disagree. This is, essentially, the modern dating market. What do girls like? Guys with money, right? Nope. Otherwise ex-con bad boys would never be able to get laid. They like pretty boy Chad types, right? Nope, plenty of evidence of ugly ass dudes getting plenty of action. They like famous people like rock stars and movie stars, right? Nope those dudes get raked over the coals during divorce just like everybody else. All these ideas of what women "like" are like the B, C, D, and E. They are all RESULTS of "A," which is what they REALLY want. B, C, D, and E USED TO BE signs of A. But that was long ago. Now, you may have B, C, D, and E but NOT A. B, C, D and E are all outward expressions. Money, fame, looks, gorgeous face and six packs. A is very INTERNAL. A subconscious view of yourself and the world. And it comes out through how you speak, walk and act. It is IMPOSSIBLE to fake. So when YOU build it, you WILL dominate. Over EVERYBODY. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/social-dominance/
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr08Post.mp4 One of the curious things about being human is we think we are logical. We all believe we make logical choices and decisions. And those who disagree with us are NOT logical. They are irrational, emotional, crazy, etc. But according to most psychological and neurological research, our conscious brains are NOT in charge most of the time. This is the basic idea behind Cialdini's research. Cialdini is the guy who came up with the idea of Authority, Social Proof, Scarcity, etc. And through his research, and plenty of the research he references in his books, most of the reasons we do things are OUTSIDE of our conscious awareness. This creates the MYTH that persuasion is an art form. Cialdini, however, showed how it is a SCIENCE. If you know what factors influence somebody, you can significantly increase how effectively you can advertise. You can also significantly DECREASE how much advertisers take advantage of us. One of the presuppositions of Game Theory is that we ALWAYS behave rationally. Right off the bat this sounds like a contradiction. But what this means is that we behave rationally but based on our OWN subjective values and beliefs. Many of which live in our unconscious. For example, there you are standing at the buffet. You're STARVING and in a good mood since you are about to EAT. You look at all the choices. The INPUTS are purely subjective. But how those INPUTS are compared is PURE LOGIC. On circuit boards, they have these things called OR Gates. Two inputs, one output. The inputs are either 0 or 1. Binary. If either one is 1, then the output is one. If neither is 1 (both are zero) the output is zero. This is how our brain works. Only the inputs are the STRENGTHS of our subconscious and subjective desires. Even when we do things because we "feel like it" a logical circuit in our brain has triggered us to action. All things considered, doing that "thing" gave us a STRONGER feeling than NOT doing that "thing." From the outside in, it looks like EVERYBODY is an illogical, irrational lunatic. But from inside our own brains, for our own reasons, we are VERY LOGICAL. This is where it gets pretty cool. First, you start with the ideas of Cialdini. The EXTERNAL reasons why we do things. Then you understand the basics of human nature. That is, our instincts that DRIVE our behaviors. If you combine these two, what do you get? An understanding of the INTERNAL and EXTERNAL drivers of all human behavior. Not only will you be able to UNDERSTAND human behavior, but you'll be able to PREDICT it. And even MANAGE and GUIDE it. Wherever, however, and with WHOMEVER you want. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/storytelling-magic/
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct20Post.mp4 What makes a classic movie? Nobody really knows. It's one of those things we all know when we see it. But if anybody could make on purposely, they would. Even decent movies vs. crappy movies. We all agree, more or less, which movies are really good, and which ones are really crappy. Sure, we disagree on the so-so movies. But classic movies like, "The Godfather," or "Citizen Kane," are pretty unanimous. Few people would watch "The Godfather," and say: "Yeah, that movie sucked." Nobody would ever watch "Howard The Duck," and think that they'd just seen the next classic of the ages. But the weird thing is that while we can all agree that movies like "The Godfather," are awesome, and movies like "Howard The Duck," pretty much suck, nobody can CREATE something that is awesome. For every Godfather, there are tons of movies that suck. But while they were making those movies, they all thought they were going to be awesome. Nobody makes a crappy movie on purpose. Even Al Pacino, when he was making The Godfather, thought HE sucked. He admitted that while they were filming the movie, he kept having self doubts. He thought people would see him, think he sucked as an actor, and that would be that. All this is due to the simple idea that things we value, we value SUBJECTIVELY. If somebody told you to make a cube made out of a certain mix of metal, and had a certain density and set of measurements, it would be easy. You wouldn't create it, measure all the dimensions, and hand it off to your boss thinking, "Gee I hope his scale measures weight the same way my scale does!" That would be silly! We all like good things. But it's equally hard to CREATE good things. One common idea in marketing is "you are not your market." If you absolutely LOVE peanut butter sandwiches, and can't live without them, that doesn't mean you'd be successful opening up a peanut butter sandwich restaurant. One common reason most businesses fail is they are too attached to THEIR OWN idea of success. To the extent you can be absolutely OBEDIENT to the demands of the market, you'll be successful. This is also why we all have a deep fear of expressing what WE subjectively like and want. We KNOW everybody is else might have a different opinion. We a movie, we think it's awesome, and can't wait to tell everybody. But then we read some online reviews and find out that everybody else on the planet think it absolutely sucked. So we tend to keep our opinions to ourselves. This means that everybody is FILLED with opinions, desires and fantasies that they are DYING to share. If you help them express them, expand them and validate them, they'll do ANYTHING for you. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct18Post.mp4 The first job I ever had was the one of the most fun. It was at movie theater. Lots of high school and college kids. Working the counters on Friday and Saturday nights was pretty fun. People waiting in line, on dates or with friends. Buying junk food and looking forward to a couple hours of relaxing entertainment. Everybody in a good mood. People happy to buy, and people happy to sell. When little kids go door to door to sell stuff, it's kind of the same situation. Since they don't feel a connection with sales and survival, it's much more playful. Even if they are competing to see who can sell the most raffle tickets or whatever, it's still pretty fun. Most people don't yell a little kids selling things for a decent cause. So even if they get "rejected," the "rejectors" are pretty friendly about it. And the "rejectees" don't see much of a difference between a sale and a rejection. It's still an enjoyable interaction with another friendly human. An interesting concept from economics is that nobody will trade anything unless they believe they are getting more than they are giving. So when people buy popcorn, candy, and soda on a Friday night, they WANT the popcorn and candy and soda MORE than the money they are paying for it. So they are happier AFTER they exchange. When they are walking toward the theater with an armful of delicious junk food. If they are with a date, even better. If they have an expectation of seeing a popular movie, even more better. IF humans didn't love buying things, nobody would ever invent anything. If we weren't highly social animals, we wouldn't be compelled to live in large cities. Situations like selling popcorn to happy people on Friday night are enjoyable because EVERYTHING is aligned. It's a pure desire satisfaction exchange. Even kids selling raffle tickets door to door is a pretty well aligned desire satisfaction exchange. People might not want to buy any raffle tickets, but most normal adults enjoy talking to normal kids. Especially normal kids that are out trying to do something worthwhile. The entire human experience is based on these positive desire-exchanges. Everything we do is to get MORE of the positive desire-exchanges. Everybody has within their brain an endless collection of these desires they'd like to fulfill. So if you can figure out a way to get them talking about those desires, in rich detail, they'll never, ever forget you. And they'll be willing to do nearly anything to keep that feeling alive.

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July28Post.mp4 Imagine you had a conversation with a boxer. A guy who was about to have the fight of his career. Imagine the fight was going to start in a couple of hours. And suppose you asked his strategy was. What do you imagine he might say? I suppose that would depend on the other fighter in this particular metaphor. And it would depend on the hero of this metaphor. We can assume the fighting style of the hero. We can assume the fighting style of the opponent. This might give us a better imagination how he might answer that question. But even then it would only be a general strategy. If you asked him what specific punches he planned on throwing, and in what particular order, he'd look at you funny. Clearly, that would depend on what the other guy was doing. Once upon a time there was a guy named Lorenz. He came up with mind experiment to help predict weather patterns. A beaker of water, with four variables. Only four. But each variable was dependent on the other three. Change one and you change the other three. But each time you changed any of the other three, you would then change the OTHER other three. They found that by changing the starting conditions only slightly, the system would be WAY different only a few minutes out. This is the foundation of CHAOS THEORY. Even know they KNOW the starting conditions. Even know they KNOW the laws of chemistry and physics. They still CANNOT predict complex systems very far out. Now imagine two people standing across a room. Flirting with one another. Eye contact, smiles, etc. Open posture. But the guy never walks over and starts the conversation. The excuse he gives himself is common. "I don't know what to say." But this is also a complete and absolute myth. That would be like a boxer being afraid to fight because he doesn't know what PUNCHES to throw. But since the guy in this metaphor is a HUMAN, and has plenty of time speaking to OTHER HUMANS, he knows what to say based on unfolding conditions. In reality, that excuse, "I don't know what to say," is a self defensive, self deception. To avoid social exposure. To avoid rejection. Two very PAINFUL things. But that's by looking only at the surface. Of worrying about what they might say, and then worrying about how you might reply. When you focus on the deeper instincts, it is MUCH EASIER. Because the deeper instincts are MUCH easier to lead. To leverage. Making all communication and persuasion VERY easy. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/instint-persuasion/
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July27Post.mp4 When I was a kid, I went through a couple of "Etch-a-Sketch" toys. These were pretty simple. There was a screen, and two knobs. The knobs controlled the X and Y movements of the "pen" under the screen. The screen was covered with small magnetic particles. And when you moved the knobs around, you could draw a shape. Then you'd shake it and it would clear. Normally, these things would last a while. As they were pretty simple. But not for a goof like me. I was always taking stuff apart to see how they worked. Some toys were the opposite. From a magnetic perspective. You had a bunch of magnetic particles that were on the inside. And by using a special magnetic pen, you could "pull up" the particles so they'd stick to the pen. Magnets are pretty cool. Once they figured out how magnetism works, especially the interaction between the magnetic and electric fields, that allowed them to "produce" electricity. With a strong enough magnet (that you can buy on Amazon) you can bypass key card locks. You can even open up most hotel safes. This is one of the things that is possible when you understand exactly HOW stuff works. Of course, the magnets that can bypass key card locks and open up hotel safes are REALLY heavy. Like 20-30 pounds. So it's not quite as "easy" as it looks. But it makes for great marketing. For companies that sell very hard to break-into-safes. There are plenty of ways you can skirt normal ways of doing things. Some are clearly illegal and immoral. Like using magnets to break into hotel rooms and open up safes. But some are perfectly normal. Perfectly legal. And not only are they perfectly moral, but people will feel GOOD once you "apply" these hacks. One of them involves language. Kind of like the second magnet toy. Where you use a special pen to "pull up" the magnetic particles to the surface. When certain language techniques, you can "pull up" certain desires to the surface. Bring them up, build them up, and then ATTACH them to whatever you want. You. Your product. Your idea. Your recommendation. Anything. The best part is they won't have any idea what's going on. They'll just get a sudden desire to do EXACTLY what it is you wanted them do. And since it will be based on their DEEP desires, they'll own it completely.
