  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept29Post.mp4 One of the harshest truths of modern life is the idea of "fairness." On the one hand, the goofs who want to control everything maintain their main reason for being in charge is to keep everything "fair." This sounds very compelling. It sounds like we don't have to do anything. That if things aren't fair, it's somebody else's fault. At the same time, there is evidence ALL AROUND US that PROVES life is NOT fair. Not in the least. The pretty people have it much easier. The well connected have it much easier. The genetically gifted have it much easier. But this is very, very dangerous thinking. Because it opens us up to even more VICIOUS con artists that crave power. We look out into the world, and see it's NOT fair. But we've been brainwashed since birth to think it's SUPPOSED to be fair. So this makes it easy for power hungry sociopaths. Their message is simple. "Give me power, and I'll make everything fair, like it's SUPPOSED to be." But that only makes to worse. History shows this again, and again. One very NON mainstream theory about the cycles of history are as follows. One guy and his buddies take power by FORCE. Then they set up a system of laws, ostensibly to make life fair. This reason, to make life "fair," according to these non-mainstream historians is NOT the real reason. The REAL reason is to make it harder for the next group of guys to seize power. That's what the system of laws are for. This type of thing happens over and over and over. Mark Twain said history doesn't repeat, but it rhymes. Same STRUCTURES, but different contents and labels. Now, I don't know about you, but I'm not really interested in becoming a revolutionary or any of that stuff. I'd rather get in the game and get stuff. Let all the power hungry sociopaths try to out-jack each other up the power ladder. But getting in the game means you've got to COMPETE to get the good stuff. The good jobs. The hot ladies and guys. The good houses, or corner offices. Luckily, the one skill that will get you the good stuff is NOT based on genetics. It only SEEMS like it since everybody just shows up and hopes for the best. Sure, if nobody has any game whatsoever, then showing and hoping for best will ONLY work for the pretty people, the genetically gifted, and the well connected. But when you develop some skills that few other people have, you WILL get a massive advantage. This isn't your typical "game" where you memorize and spit out a bunch of patterns. This is a much, much deeper "game." A much more robust intellectual and creative approach. By exercising your brain to build your thinking and creative imagination. To out SMART all the mindless pretty people cutting in the front of the line. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/mental-strength/
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept09Post.mp4 A study was done on guys picking up girls in parks. It wasn't quite an academic level study. And it wasn't completely scientific. But since it kind of makes sense, it seems pretty accurate. It was done by a men's magazine, not a scientific magazine or an academic, peer reviewed magazine. The study? They sent a guy, or a group of guys to the park. These guys tried to get ladies phone numbers under three different scenarios. The first one was the dude by himself. The second one was a dude with a dog. The third one was a dude with a baby. And he makes it clear the baby isn't his. That the baby belongs to a friend. The results are pretty obvious. Dude by himself got, on average 1 out of 10 numbers. Meaning he asked ten times and got one number. Dude with a dog got three out of ten. Dude with a baby got seven out of ten. This is obvious, but the REASONS aren't nearly as obvious as we tend to think. The common answer is that women see the guy with the baby. He mentions it's not his. She makes a RATIONAL assumption that since another woman trusts this guy with the baby, therefore he must be a good "catch." This is NOT the reason. This might be an unconscious assumption on her part, but it's not the MAIN reason. Think of this as a kind of halo effect. Dudes are hard pressed to ignore gorgeous ladies. Gorgeous ladies sell way more than dudes or ugly ladies. Gorgeous ladies get more jobs, and have a generally easier life that non-gorgeous ladies. There is NO rational reason for this. Nobody looks at the gorgeous lady and thinks: "Hmm, she's got good genes, therefore if I do business with her I have a higher chance of success." People look at the gorgeous lady, and FEEL GOOD. And that good feeling is subconsciously attached to whatever IDEA that gorgeous is talking about. This is a PURELY subconscious effect. So, back to the park with the dude and the baby. She looks at the baby and FEELS GOOD. And that good feeling is subconsciously attached to the dude. Now, why does she feel good when she looks at a baby? Well for one, most normal women like babies. And most normal men like babies. Especially cute babies, and cute toddlers. Now, why are they so cute? Evolutionary psychologists even believe the "cute toddler" effect is an effect of natural selection. Since we feel ATTRACTED to these cute babies and toddlers, we feel an urge to protect them. All instinctive. All unconscious. Now, the money question. Is it possible for an adult to create the SAME unconscious, deep attractive response? To behave in a way to create DEEP and POWERFUL attraction from nearly everybody you interact with? That is unconscious, automatic and instinctive? Without worrying AT ALL about what to say? Yes, yes there is. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/attractive-mindset/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept01Post.mp4 One of Cialdini's laws of persuasion is "liking." Meaning the more we "like" somebody, the more we'll take whatever they say at face value. For example, imagine you're in some store, looking to maybe purchase something. Let's say it's something you've been wanting for a long time, and it's a few hundred bucks. And just when you're about to turn away, and think about getting it later, you see an old friend. A good friend. A friend you've helped bury bodies, and they've helped you bury bodies. A friend that would help you break out of prison if you needed him. A friend that makes you feel really good when you see him. And he looks at you, and at that thing you are about to buy, and says: "Dude, that thing is AWESOME! I own six of them! Damn you should buy it NOW!" Chances are, that recommendation from a friend would push you over the edge. This is why RAPPORT is so important. When you match somebody's body language, it sends a very STRONG message: "I am like you." This is delivered subconsciously and powerfully. And since most people LIKE THEMSELVES, we tend to like others which we feel FAMILIAR and comfortable with. Body language rapport INCREASES the "liking" law of influence. What else triggers the "liking" law of influence? A pretty face, a small waist and some BIG BOOBS! Well, not necessarily those things, but an attractive person. This is why the halo effect is so powerful. We look at pretty people. We AUTOMATICALLY get a deep subconscious feeling that says, "I like that person!" So when they say stuff, we don't question it NEARLY as much. For example, consider this mental split test. Situation one, you're at your local food court or any place where you need to make a food choice. Then a GORGEOUS woman (or dude if you like) shows up, and whispers seductively in your ear: "Hey sweetie, I really think you should consider choice X, it makes me feel really, really good..." Most normal humans would get choice X. (and maybe a boner...) Now imagine that SAME sentence, but coming from a smelly homeless guy with pee stains all over his pants. And when he whispers that to you, you can feel some of his spittle going inside your ear! Gross, dude! You wouldn't choose X, you'd RUN! But the BEST way to make yourself likeable is to DEMONSTRATE this. Big boobs, rapport, these are all QUICK and unconscious things. A much, much better way to DEMONSTRATE liking is to expand their mind map and stories. To really pay attention to, expand and appreciate the subjective ideas they've got in their mind. Big boobs and rapport are kind of binary. They either exist or they don't. But the MORE you expand THEIR mind map and stories, the MORE they'll like you. So much they'll EAGERLY do whatever you suggest. With a happy smile on their face. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/metaphor-mastery/
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr01Post.mp4 The halo effect is a real thing. It's very superficial, but it's very real. In many ways, pretty people, both guys and girls CAN have it easier. So long as the content surrounding their halo effect is superficial, they will have a significant advantage. Why is this? When we look at pretty people, we get a very strong, very positive, very ancient instinctive feeling. A very ancient feeling that says, "I want that." Not just "that," but everything associated with "that." This is tied to beauty and youth. This was also calibrated a long, long time ago when life was very, very simple. Halo effect people AND fast food have plenty of similarities. Fast food tastes good in the short term. Halo effect people make us feel good, in the short term. Of course, this comparison itself is very shallow. There are plenty of things you can eat that are both delicious and very healthy. There are plenty of people who are attractive, but also have similarly attractive personalities. This is where the comparisons end. With food, healthy food can ONLY taste so good. You'll never get a healthy meal that satisfies you like your favorite junk food. Staying AWAY from your favorite junk food and eating ONLY healthy food takes constant vigilance. This is why it is MUCH easier to gain weight than it is to lose weight. But for people? It's the opposite. In this regard, pretty people have a disadvantage. Way back in the day, being physically attractive was enough. But today, the world is much more complex. Deep, long lasting and complex emotional feelings are MUCH more important than quick, superficial feelings. If you are one of the genetically blessed, creating those superficial positive feelings is EASY. So easy you can make a career out of it. So long as you NEVER have to talk about anything deep or complicated. This is why pretty people can be more prone to depression. Especially if ALL they have is their looks. They feel, on a subconscious level, that they are only a few steps away from rejection. They always have a sinking suspicion that if they lost their looks, they'd lose everything. That's why being able to CREATE positive feelings in others is a very powerful skill. Not through your looks, but through your communication. Not the superficial communication of memorized patterns or compliments. But deep communication. The questions that make them think. Not just a little bit, but for a long time. Questions that they will ponder for a long time. Questions that will resonate in their mind. They longer they ponder them, the more they'll think about you in fantastic terms. This is something you can engineer with your language. Your interactions. Your focus and your interest. This is the power that exists in your mind. An unlimited potential of never ending attraction building. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/deep-mind-persuasion/
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb08Post.mp4 The halo effect is a real effect. One that everybody tries very hard to pretend is not a real effect. Plenty of studies indicate that our physical appearance plays a much bigger role than we'd like to believe. Taller, more attractive men get more VC money, compared to everybody else. (VC = venture capitalist) Attractive job applicants get hired more so than normal ones, even when they are coached to give silly answers to interviewer questions. You'd think that VC's and hiring people would be more interested in raw talent, but remember who we are. We aren't Vulcans, we aren't robots, we aren't angels. We are basically monkeys that learned how to talk. So, yes, the halo effect is real. But pretty people don't want to believe it's real. Because pretty people like to believe it's not ONLY their looks that are driving their success. And the rest of us ugly looking goofs don't like to believe in the halo effect, because that means we're screwed. Right? No so fast! There's an idea called "fool's mate." It's kind of like beginners luck, but a bit more complicated. If you step up to the craps table in Vegas, and win a bunch of money in a short time, this is beginner's luck. Nobody would believe they won at craps because of some mad dice throwing skill. But fool's mate is about beginners luck, but with chess. To win in chess, you need to make at least a few moves. It's hard to believe you can beat a better opponent simply by luck. But from a pure probability standpoint, it happens. From the sheer number of games, you'll find a few where some goof gets lucky six or seven moves in a row. And this lucky goof ends up winning. But whenever people talk about "fool's mate," the focus is usually NOT on the lucky win. It's on the aftermath. People who win money in craps KNOW they are lucky. People who win at fool's mate actually BELIEVE they are skilled. This is VERY dangerous. If you believe your skills are higher than they really are, it's just a matter of time until you get smacked in the face. It's VERY EASY for super pretty people to believe that they are where they are because of skill, or insight, or raw talent. Especially in today's train wreck economy, with billions of dollars being added to our monetary system every day. Inevitably plenty of that cash is going to flow to the pretty people. But here's the thing. How you look, whatever your genetic starting point, that is JUST a starting point. All you need to do is get started building some skills. And it won't be long before you leave EVERYBODY in the dust. Especially all those pretty people who will never admit that being pretty is pretty much ALL they've got. What particular skills should you practice? The two more important skills us talking monkeys can develop. Thinking skills, and speaking skills.

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct19Post.mp4 Many things can be seen from two completely different perspectives. Once I was with a bunch of friends. We'd just sat down in a restaurant, and were looking over at the menu. My friend noticed that his water glass was different than all the rest. Same size, but a slightly different shape. He immediately took this to mean that something was wrong with him. Of course, he was only being about 5% serious. But this is a common response whenever we are singled out for any reason. Another friend was quick with the helpful reframe. "That doesn't mean you are worse than everybody, that means you are better than everybody!" Both can be equally correct. We can be singled out because there is something wrong with us. Or we can be singled out because we are special in some way. Our brains are quick with these kinds of reframes. We can turn bugs into features, and features into bugs. Usually very quickly and subconsciously. This may indeed be a deep human instinct. A necessary human instinct. Way back in the day, in order to get our daily calories, we had to put in a lot of effort. And a lot of that effort was of the trial and error kind. Of chasing an animal, or several animals, a long time before we caught and killed it. Or shaking a bunch of trees before we got enough bananas to eat. We are pretty good with doing this with ourselves. Turning failures into positives. We kind of suck at doing this with others. Especially when it comes to people who are naturally gifted. Nowadays, there's a lot of ideas associated with some kind of "privilege." That some people, by their lucky virtue of genetics, have it easy. And the rest of us normal goofs have to work harder. But this is also something you can easily reframe. People that are exceptionally attractive, for example, DO have it easy. Studies have shown this. But only in some situations. The situations that call for deep intellect, long game planning, effective conversational and social skills, these are not associated with super gorgeous people. Because super gorgeous folks rarely feel any need to develop any of those deep traits. Super gorgeous people just show up, and by virtue of their gorgeousness, they can get their feet into doors most of us can't. But that's all they can do. Get their foot into a door, stand on the other side of that door, and look pretty. But with some very targeted conversational skills, you can make yourself much more attractive, from a subconscious energy standpoint, than the most gorgeous person on Earth. You can BUILD your own halo effect as big as you want. With whomever you want. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July18Post.mp4 One very common metaphor when it comes to sales is to "sell the sizzle, not the steak." What does this mean? To appeal to people's emotions, rather than their logic. If you sell the steak, you can talk about where it came from. The kind of beef. How it was raised, what it was fed, etc. But when you sell the SIZZLE you sell how the product will be interpreted by the senses. That's because we humans are not nearly as logical as we'd like to believe. Sure, you may do some research on a product. Read consumer reports to find out the specifics. But most of our decisions are emotional. Even huge decisions like where to go to college. That's why kids like to go and take a tour of college campuses. Even when buying important things like houses, our emotions play major part. Advertisers know that many of our decisions are based on social proof and authority. This is why McDonalds has always listed the billions of burgers they've sold. This is why famous actors use their VOICE to sell cars. These authority and social proof based decisions are made BENEATH conscious awareness. Even when we are deciding what to wear, we quickly and subconsciously imagine how our social peers might respond. How those we would LIKE to be our social peers would respond. One thing that is also very powerful, in addition to social proof and authority, is the HALO effect. Attractive people sell things and are more persuasive than non attractive people. Study after study demonstrates this. Does this mean if you are NOT attractive, you can't be persuasive? Does this mean if you DON'T have authority, you can't be persuasive? Does this mean if your idea DOESN'T have social proof, you can be persuasive? Not at all. The reason advertisers LOVE these three very powerful factors is they are SET and FORGET. They create a script or an ad campaign, fill it with persuasive tech, hire a hot model and set it loose. Once it's created, it just runs on auto pilot. Interpersonal persuasion is actually MUCH EASIER. Because there is one trigger that is much more powerful than authority, social proof and the halo effect. If you can leverage this much more powerful instinct, you'll be more persuasive than any authority, social proof, or even a sexy halo effect. Hit this ONE instinct, and you'll easily be able to get anybody to do anything. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/instinct-persuasion/
  13. Most people have an idea of the halo effect. It’s when people that are attractive have an easier time than the rest of us. A famous study unquestioningly illustrated this. They sent in attractive people to job interviews. Carefully prepped them to give purposely boneheaded answers. They also prepared normal looking people. The normal looking people gave very good answers. As you’d expect, the pretty people who gave dumb answers were hired at a higher rate than the normal people who gave intelligent answers. The conclusion most people draw from this is life ain’t fair. Lucky for us normal folks, it isn’t fair. That is FANTASTIC news. Why? Because the halo affect only applies to those who are GENETICALLY gifted. The halo effect is something you either have, or don’t have. Sure, you can dress nice, wear some nice perfume or cologne, but if you ain’t got a pretty face, there’s not much to do. At least if you’re a normal human. Lucky for you, you know how the halo effect works. It’s used in advertising all the time. They put a sexy person next to a toaster, and people buy toasters. (Put my ugly mug next to a toaster and somebody’ll call the cops...) But for those skilled in the arts of covert hypnosis, you know you can CREATE the halo effect. The way it normally works is somebody looks at a pretty girl with big boobs. And that creates a GENETICALLY PROGRAMMED feeling of, “Holy crap! I’d like some of that!” That feeling, of course, gets stuck to the toaster, or whatever else they are selling. But there are MANY ways to create that, “I want that” feeling. Sure, sticking a model up there with big boobs is easy. She just stands there and creates that feeling all by herself. But you can create an equally powerful feeling with words. The thing with words is you can shape them. Form them like a master sculptor. Allowing you to create LASER TARGETED halo effects that you can attach to ANYTHING you want to. This is a skill. And skills can be learned. Practiced. Enhanced. The more you practice them, the better they’ll get. As long as you can breathe and think, the more you can enhance your super customizable halo effect powers. Compare to that sexy model with the big boobs. Time is NOT her friend. But it is YOURS.
