  1. Never Do Anything Wrong Again: https://mindpersuasion.com/never-do-anything-wrong-again/ https://mindpersuasion.com/3x3/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan27_Post.mp4 Ever since I've been in high school, I've loved cycling. When I was in college, whenever I had some spare time, I'd go riding up and down hills. I liked riding up and down. Riding up was kind of like hiking. You keep grinding, and every once in a while you stop and look around and see how much higher you are. But going down is a different kind of thrill. A spending of carefully saved up potential energy. The fastest I've ever coasted downhill was 53 miles per hour. A perfect hill for coasting. St
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan26_Post.mp4 I saw a really cool movie the other night. It was a very well calibrated sequence of plot twists. Three main characters. A fake psychic, his manager and audience plant, and a criminal who believed the fake psychic was a real psychic. A simple setup, and then plot twist after plot twist. And because each plot twist was well calibrated, they were very believable. A very nice ride. Other movies don't have ANY plot twists. A few reveals in the beginning, then essentially a race. Other movies start ou
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec14Post.mp4 It's a common idea that men shouldn't express their emotions. That men should be tough, and resilient. The leaders that others follow. This is kind of true. It's also like many, many other "truisms." The are far too vague to be of any help. It's a harsh truth about male-female relationships that if men are always "weak" then they will lose attraction. This is absolutely true. If a lady thinks her guy has it in him to get a promotion at work, but he's too scared to ask for one, that will decrease her
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec13Post.mp4 One of my favorite "poetic" lines is from the song, Kashmir, by Led Zeppelin. Expressed thusly: "Oh father of the four winds fill my sails Cross the sea of years With no provision but an open face Along the straits of fear" A lot of their lyrics are based on Norse mythology. With gods of the ocean, etc. One common theme of all cultures is mythology and religion. We humans seem to have an instinctive need for a kind of "metaphorical space" in which to create role models. Stories, mythology
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec11Post.mp4 There's a common myth about male-female relationships. It's a comforting myth, which is true of most, if not all myths. Myths ARE myths because they can't be proven. But they SEEM to be true because we accept them, we see evidence of them everywhere. This is a function of confirmation bias. Even more dangerous is if common myth has a couple of other "Cialdini ideas" supporting it. Namely, social proof, potential authority, and commitment and consistency. Each one of these helps ideas to slide into our heads
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec10Post.mp4 A study was done on plenty of fictional books. To figure out what the overall structure was. And they found a certain short term pattern in nearly all of them. A good thing happened, and then a bad thing happened. Some of these were small, almost insignificant events, some were much larger. On a more meta level, you can find a bigger structure. Protagonist, Antagonist, build up, massive conflict, and (usually) happy ending. Or not "happy" ending, but a "satisfying" ending. Even thought some characters
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec09Post.mp4 A while ago I saw some pictures of what life was like during the Soviet Union. They had a big room where people were all selling things. But all everybody was selling were apples. There's one Monty Python movie about a marketplace during some ancient plague or other catastrophic event. Some dude had a table and was selling nothing. And he was pitching his nothing like crazy. "I've got nothing for sale! Come and get your nothing!" Imagine getting excited about going to see a world famous symphony. You w
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec08Post.mp4 Way back in high school I worked at a movie theater. It got really busy in Friday and Saturday nights. There'd be a big line outside, and went it was ready, we'd open the doors. There'd be a mad rush to by candy popcorn and soda. Common for one person to grab some seats, and somebody else to grab the popcorn. Then my boss got the idea to set up another stand in the back of the theater. Not a full fledged stand, but a cart with some stuff pre-made. A few cokes, a few popcorns, some candy. The first girl
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. 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
