  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July31Post.mp4 Most people like the idea of being told what to do. Plenty of self development courses are built around this idea. "Watch over my shoulder as I make millions," kind of thing. Step by step blueprints. But simple economics tells us this is impossible. Simple economics and a little bit of thought. Imagine some "guru" DID manage to discover the "secret" to success. And he packed seminar room after seminar room. And told all the attendees the step by step "blueprint" for success. That would work IF th
  2. There have been a lot of weird end-of-the-world cults. My favorite is a fictional one, from one of the Poltergeist movies. The fist movie was in a house that was on top of a cemetery. They'd moved the headstones, but not the bodies. (greedy real estate company) The second movie was something similar. Apparently a preacher (1800's or so) had collected a bunch of kids. Saying he was going to save them from the apocalypse. So he gathered them in some cave. Waiting for the end times. The date and went, but nothing happened. So the crazy old pr
  3. One of the biggest myths about us humans is the idea of free will. Not in that we're trapped inside a matrix or anything. But many of our choices are not NEARLY as independent as we think they are. Plenty of experiments verify this. The Milgram experiment (repeated many times) show that most of us (about 70%) will do ANYTHING so long as a guy in charge says so. The Asch experiment shows that when we are in a group, it is very HARD to think DIFFERENTLY than the group. Tons of marketing studies sales page show that we do things many times ONLY because we do things.
  4. Most people love the idea of being famous. But this is usually on a subconscious level. Many people have the experience of not thinking they are hungry. Then maybe they happen across some food. Maybe at a party, or somebody brought some snacks to work. As soon as you take a bite, you realize how hungry you are. Hunger is a two-stage instinct. We always think about food, since it's the only thing keeping us alive. But the second stage is just as important. Way back in the day, since food was so hard to get, we had to store excess energy whenever we h
  5. A very common idea in business is split testing. Even way before the internet, split testing was common. Markers know that if they want to get useful data, they need to do something other than ask people directly. Psychologists tell us that when we answer questions, we usually give answers that make us look good. Or if some marketing company is having some kind of focus group, they usually have to pay people. And since the person who is paying you is asking the questions, this also makes us give less than honest answers. But when they can set up situations where w
  6. Once upon a time there was a guy on a ship. He was the type who rarely took vacations. It took him a while to build up the courage to go on a cruise. So one day, he was standing on the deck, enjoying the sunshine, when a storm hit. It came fast and deadly. The skies were dark, the thunder was loud, the rain was heavy and the boat was rocking. Dude was terrified. People were slipping off the deck left and right. So he grabbed onto the nearest thing he could. The anchor. For several hours, he gripped the anchor as tightly as he could. It sav
  7. The behavior of human structure is very easy to see in other people. We give somebody advice, and they say: "Yeah, easy for you to say!" But it's nearly impossible to see in ourselves. One way is to "go meta." Which means to purposely look at ourselves, and our behavior from a "higher' or more "objective" perspective. This is the kind of thing people learn in NLP seminars. But it's also something people do VERY naturally and EXTREMELY effectively. How? If you ever keep any record of any of your behavior, either before or after, you are going meta.
