  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov18Post.mp4 When most of us see people we'd like to know, it makes us nervous. Whether they be a key person at a networking event, or an attractive and potential romantic interest, simply the DESIRE to create a positive impression causes problems. This is why people talk about things like "outcome independence." This is true, but just saying we should be more "outcome independent" is pretty worthless. It's like telling somebody struggling with weight loss to simply "eat less than you burn." Or somebody who is trying out for the
  2. 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.
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr30Post.mp4 Henry Ford was a genius. He, of course, became rich and famous for creating a mass produced car. Not inventing the car, but inventing a way to build a ton of cars quickly and cheaply. There's a famous pair of pictures from back in the day. Both are pictures of the same street in New York. One has a bunch of horses, and a few cars. Another has a bunch of cars, and a few horses. They were only taken ten years apart. This is what they mean by "disruptive technology." When you can make something WAY b
  4. 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
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr09Post.mp4 It's hard to communicate without using metaphors. Words themselves are metaphors. Auditory representations of mental pictures. One simple description can mean many things to many people. If I say: "Yesterday I saw a cute girl in the park with her dog." This sounds very specific. But every person who reads that will have a different idea of what each tangible nouns looks like. Even the ones that aren't mentioned. You'll imagine a pretty girl. You'll imagine a dog. You'll imagine a park.
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr04Post.mp4 If you rub your fingertip along the rim of a wine goblet, you can get it to "sing." If you hold the right note, you can break that same glass. This is difficult because you have to hold the EXACT frequency that the glass naturally vibrates at. There is a bay in Canada that has a HUGE difference between high tide and low tide. What do all these things have in common? Resonance. When you rub your finger along the tip of the wine goblet, you are "calibrating" the small "micro breaks" in the smoothness until it is t
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb13Post.mp4 Storytelling and hypnosis are very closely related. Therapeutic hypnosis and movies are essentially the same structure. You sit there and let another "entity" do your thinking for you. When you are in the therapist's office, he or she is talking, you've got your eyes closed, and your following along with their words. So long as their words are guiding you toward better and more resourceful emotions, you're pretty good. Similarly, when w watch a movie or even a TV show, we are letting the story do our thinking for
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec27Post.mp4 A very common "truism" is that lying is wrong, but not for the reasons people assume. It's "wrong" because the more you lie, the more stuff you've got to remember. Lying is bad, from a purely strategic standpoint. This is why if you think somebody is lying to you, ask them to first tell you their story. Then ask them to tell it to you backwards. If they are telling the truth, then describing the events in reverse will be just as easy as forward. This is precisely what people mean when they say the know someth
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July9Post.mp4 Form and function always have an interesting relationship. Food, for example, can have one or the other extreme. Some restaurants are famous for looking and feeling like dives, but have absolutely delicious. Most people have a couple of secret "hole in the wall" restaurants that somehow have fantastically tasting food. On other end of the spectrum are dishes that are meant to "look good." The Japanese have a saying that "Japanese food is meant to be enjoyed twice." Meaning you enjoy it when you look at it, and y
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun15Post.mp4 Managing instincts is difficult. We were programmed a long, long time ago. Before we learned how to think, and talk and imagine. Instincts are like compulsions. They make us do certain things. And keep us from doing other things. Since they were "calibrated" a long, long time ago, they're kind of out of balance. That's why it's so hard to maintain a healthy weight. Being always hungery, and getting a huge pleasure while eating was necessary a long time ago. When food was hard and sometimes dang
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun13Post.mp4 One common piece of "advice" is to fake it till you make it. Sometimes this works pretty well. Other times it is bad advice. It works well when there is a simple correlation between inner state and outer behavior. And it's in an environment that is conducive. What's this mean? Normally, we think and behave naturally. We don't think about how we think. And we don't think about our thinking affects our behavior. Like if you are happy, you will naturally smile. But you can first smile, and hold
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun12Post.mp4 The song, Pinball Wizard, by The Who is an interesting song. Most pop songs are about love, etc. But the Pinball Wizard is about a guy who is deaf, dumb and blind. But he plays pinball better than everybody else. He "feels" his way around the game. And because of his skills he becomes a kind of cult like guru. The idea, as strange as it seems, is pretty common. Of feeling your way around complex situations. In many (slightly) fantasy type movies about martial arts, (or things like martial arts l
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun11Post.mp4 The more you practice, the better you perform. This is one of those things that is so obvious it's not even worth saying. But at the same time, it's something we ignore quite a lot. When "we" look out into the world, part of us notices stuff. Another part of us just kind of collects the data. This is commonly referred to as our conscious and unconscious. On a purely structural level, our brain-body systems are incredibly complex. We have this massively complicated body. Our body needs things to
  14. Pop art tends to pace the human condition very well. Especially pop music and popular TV. The song, "Destroyer," from the Kinks, for example, has the following line: "You get a good thing going and you blow yourself out..." The song, "Should I stay or should I go," from The Clash has a similar line: "This indecision's bugging me..." A common trope in movies is the hero starts to fall hard for their romantic interest. But they have a deep fear. That their romantic interest will find out who they REALLY are, and flee. Perhaps you've felt this before?
  15. When native English speakers say they can perceive things that aren't being said, we say "reading between the lines." In Japan, they say, "reading the air." Which are two ways of saying the same thing. Humans have been living in social groups for millions of years. Long BEFORE we became humans. We've only developed spoken language about 200K years ago. Which is only a FRACTION of the time we've been hanging around each other. They say that the words we use are only 7% of our communication. Non-verbal makes up the rest. What, exactly, is non-verbal?
  16. Anxiety can significantly mess things up. But from looking at it from the inside, this is true, but because you're also in a state of anxiety, it's impossible to see how or why. Which makes solutions from this state seem impossible. One of Einstein's famous sayings is you can't solve a problem from the same mindset that created the problem. This makes things even worse. If you are in a state of anxiety, you make less than optimal decisions. These decisions can make things worse. Those worse things will create more anxiety. Next thing you know you're swir
  17. I had a boss a while ago that wasn't very computer literate. Not only that, but she had her own PC, and the PC the rest of us in the office had to use. She would always put new programs on the group PC. When we would complain, she would always act like our complaints were unfounded. "But it just runs in the background," she would say. As if not seeing a program running means you wouldn't be influenced by it. Since she didn't use that particular computer, she didn't experience how utterly slow all these other programs made it. We'd be trying to do our work, an
  18. Humans are driven by instincts. And we have been for a long, long time. Long before we developed self-awareness and language. What instincts? Things that keep us safe, and happy. Things that keep us out of danger. You don't need to learn to be afraid of snakes. Experiments on babies show that in the first few days, we are naturally drawn toward sweet smells and tastes. And we naturally turn away from pungent smells like garlic. Unless the baby's mother is a garlic eater, then the baby comes out naturally attracted to garlic. Because we are high
  19. One of the most baffling questions about us humans is our consciousness. Our self awareness. Neurologists know a great deal about our brains. About how our neurons work together. The parts of the brain that are responsible for certain things. They do studies on prayer and meditation, and find benefits. They can do magnetic resonance imaging of our brains while we are doing certain things. As a science, they do what scientists do. They look at something, measure it as carefully as they can, and then attempt to explain what it is they are looking at.
  20. Most sales involves memorizing a pitch of some sort. The stereotypical sales person is the guy or gal who can deliver that pitch with maximum charisma. Even a BETTER salesperson can sort of "read" the customer and deliver a pitch. This is based on the idea that the salesperson knows WHY people SHOULD buy the item or service in question. It's fundamentally based on the salesperson doing the talking, and the customer doing the listening. This is why VERY charismatic people are the BEST salespeople. The have a certain "halo effect." What is a halo effect? I
  21. Every culture has a rich history of storytelling. Norse culture had a particularly interesting technique. The would tell stories that had basic elements built in. Then the storytellers would only have to remember those basic plot points. They connected them mentally to certain parts of a warrior's armor. Just like the modern memory technique of the memory palace. Where you connect items you want to remember to rooms in a house. The way the tellers of the Norse Sagas used this technique was similar. They would connect the very basic plot points to a warri
  22. Isaac Newton is considered the smartest guy who ever lived. He essentially invented physics. He wrote a book which translated into English means "Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy," way back in 1687. It's one thing to study physics. It's another thing to study physics until you have a PhD so you can push the envelope of human knowledge out a bit further. You have to be on a completely different level to INVENT the subject from scratch. But as smart as Newton was, he was human. And he had emotions. Which meant he was susceptible to the SAME fo
  23. Here's a sneaky strategy you can use to get a girl interested in you. One of the "patterns" of the "Milton Model" is the "I'm not going to tell you..." pattern. The idea is when somebody hears, "I'm not going to tell you," their brain kind of shuts off. Not pass-out shut off, but their "critical factor" lowers its shields. For example, if you were a salesman, and you wanted somebody to buy your product, you could just come out and say "buy this product." Maybe you might want to give a couple a reasons. "I think you should buy this product because it is popular and
  24. One under-appreciated invention is artificial flavor. Not really from a health standpoint, but from a marketing and production standpoint. If you had to use real strawberries to make strawberry ice cream, it would be pretty expensive. But since you get use highly concentrated strawberry extract (or whatever the heck they use) you can make it a lot cheaper. Now, most of those artificial flavors aren't the greatest thing for your health. If you drink them by the gallon you'd probably have problems. Other things that are "artificial" are better. Meaning they're similar to
  25. I stumbled upon a wonderful amazing site that could help understand the different types of programs we are under. check this site out and let me know what you think? this is by far the most advanced way of seeing how programming works and could be very effective once applied. http://deoxy.org/h_lilly.htm http://deoxy.org/wiki/Human_Biocomputer
