  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb18_Post.mp4 Humans are not nearly as logical as we like to believe. Or at least in the WAY we like to believe. We are logical, but the inputs are subjective. For example, you're standing in front of a buffet. And you've got one more spot on your plate. A baked potato, or some fries? It may feel like a random decision, but it's purely logical. You look at both, and each one gives you a certain feeling. Most of this happens subconsciously, but it happens. Each choices gives you a feeling that is based on LOT of inputs. And you'll choose the one with the strongest input. The reason formal logic seems so difficult is ALL the inputs, and their relationships, MUST be forced through our conscious brains. If A, and B, but not C, then .... If A and not B, and C then.. Even more complex is most of the inputs to our decisions are instinctive. Filtered through a kajillion generations of natural selection. This includes all the "non-logical" biases that we have. For example, something that seems purely illogical is the halo effect. A pretty girl says some random stuff. And we think it's much more important than it is. A smelly homeless guy says that same random stuff, and we think he's crazy. But the pretty girl says the random stuff, and we think she's a genius. Illogical, right? Well, not according to the mathematics of natural selection. Dudes who OVER estimated the importance of what pretty girls said paid more attention to pretty girls. And guys who paid more attention to pretty girls, compared to guys who IGNORED those pretty girls, had more sex with pretty girls. And from a pure natural selection standpoint, "pretty=healthy." So, from long, multi-generational frame of natural selection, OVERESTIMATING the importance of whatever pretty girls said was purely logical. But today, it doesn't seem to make much sense. Just like eating whatever we can, as much as we can, doesn't make much sense. But both were VERY important in the past. Most of the time, when we think of this "instinct mismatch," we tend to ONLY see it as a problem. Like girls getting way more attention and fame and money ONLY because of their looks. Or how HARD it is to maintain a healthy body. But we can also understand instinct mismatch, and leverage it to our benefit. Another kind of halo effect is something called "congruence." How much you BELIEVE what you are saying. This is the MAIN INGREDIENT in authority. And the dude who speaks with the MOST authority, based on the strength of their belief, is going to be the natural leader. And what do natural leaders get? Pretty much whatever they want. Including all the pretty girls. And you can build in this inner belief system, so you can RADIATE this mostly subconscious congruence. And be a natural leader in more and more situations.

  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb01_Loop.mp4 One common but rare experience is meeting somebody you just "click" with. Not necessarily in a romantic setting, but a friendship or even a random conversation. For example, when I was younger I used to play golf. I sucked, and I had some hand me down clubs, but it was fun. If only to get outside and walk around on the grass for a couple hours. But one thing you run into when playing golf is if you aren't playing with four people, you end up getting stuck with somebody. They send out groups of four every five minutes or so. So if you show up with three people, you're going to get stuck with somebody. Kind of like on a ski lift, if you're single, you'll get stuck with another single. But ski lifts are short and it's pretty easy to just sit and be polite for the few minutes. But a round of golf takes a couple hours, at least. So if you get stuck with a weirdo it kinds of sucks. But sometimes, you get "put" with somebody that you kind of click with. Not that you become best buddies or anything. But you tend to share the same outlook, since of humor, world view etc. So it's EASY to pass the time while you're waiting for the slowpokes in front of you. This makes a round of golf very FUN. On the other hand, if you get stuck with an unfunny stick in the mud, it CAN suck. You have to be careful about the f-bombs and dirty jokes, etc. If you meet an attractive person socially, and you click, this is also a very cool feeling. But it's also considered to be very rare. Even the metaphors we use to describe this indicate we don't feel much in control. We say things like, "I hope I meet somebody." Meaning that are tons of random people out there, and meeting "somebody" we can click with is a rare event. But consider this paradigm, or model. Inside, we are VERY similar. We all want the same things. We all want to avoid the same things. Everybody wants more money, a better job, a better living arrangement, better sex, etc. Nobody wants to see their boss, or balance their bank account, or get up on Monday morning. Suppose, just for a minute, that meeting people you "click" with wasn't REALLY about compatibility? What if was more about simply releasing the more or less "false" exterior and letting loose with our inner selves? It turns out the inner structure of what everybody wants is pretty easy to pace. Pace with your language. So the more you talk to them, the more you'll click. The more you click, the more you'll enjoy the experience. So instead of "hoping" to "meet people" you click with, you'll be CHOOSING who you WANT to click with. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/slippery-slope-language/
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan28_Post.mp4 Amino acids are pretty cool. DNA and amino acids work together to build protein. Your body is made up of protein. Whoever invented this system was pretty smart. Your DNA unravels, and creates a kind of "mini-factory" for the amino acids to come down and link together. As the individual amino acids link together according to that tiny section of unraveled DNA, they build proteins. Proteins make up everything about you. Your eyes, your brain, and all the memories included in your brain. Of course, your memories, and your abilities to understand these words and think about them, is based on how your neurons fire in a complex sequence, or matrix. Nobody really knows how this works. DNA makes proteins by linking up the right amino acids in the right order. Many of those proteins make up you brain. Your brain is an "idea chamber" that holds thoughts, and ideas. But even the metaphorical ideas and emotions follow a certain kind of logic. For example, certain chord progressions create certain emotional feelings. We think of emotions as these indescribable things. Almost like magic. Yet a talented musician can string together the perfect notes, or combinations of sound vibrations, to create the perfect emotion. The ancient cult of Pythagoras figured this out, experimentally. Next time you see a piano, put your three fingers on three notes. The middle C, which is the white key just to the left of the two black keys. Then put another finger on the E, which is the white key just to the right of the two black keys. Then skip another white key, to the right, and put the third finger on the G. This is a major chord. Three notes played together. The Pythagoreans would take three pieces of string. Length one = X. Length two = 3X Length three = 5X Pluck them all together, and you get a pleasing sound. Just like the C major chord. Sound vibrations created by mathematically precise string lengths. That creates and indescribable yet pleasing emotions. Outside sounds and words and images tend to do this. We humans CRAVE these emotions. Not static emotions. But emotional flow. Flows of words, flows of music, flows of imagines and sounds in a play or a movie. Learn to speak the language of emotional flow, and people's brains will turn off as soon as you start speaking. Build yourself a time machine, and a universal translator, and pop back into any society, past, present or future. And you'll find structures that were designed for one thing. One person to speak, or sing, or act, and create those wonderful flows of emotions. And as many people to sit, and listen, or watch, and enjoy. Learn the language. Be the speaker. Move minds, move hearts, move souls. Anywhere you want. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/slippery-slope-language/

  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July07Post.mp4 Curiosity is a very powerful persuasive tool. Some sales pages for the most goofy sounding ideas work because they create curiosity. Some cheap plastic gizmo that promises to give you X-ray vision, or help you travel back and forth through time will sell. Not because people will actually think it will work. But if they make it sound compelling enough, if the sales page is interesting enough, and it's cheap enough, people will buy it just to see what the deal is. This is a long standing and proven marketing strategy. They even did a study of this on crayons. Both crayons were for sale, side by side. Same exact color, chemical components, etc. One was called "Tangerine Orange." This evoked ZERO curiosity. Tangerines are orange. This crayon is orange. I get it. This creates very little buying interest. But the other crayon was called "millennium orange." (This was back around 2000). When people saw THIS crayon, it "hooked" their brain a little bit more. People saw the tangerine orange and that didn't require ANY thinking to comprehend. But the other one, people HAD to stop and stare at and wonder why the heck it was called millennium orange. Just spending this extra brain time triggered an instinctive response. One that says: "I can't figure this out. This is really interesting!" The same response to X-Ray glasses and mental time machines. If you've even given away too much too soon in a relationship, you've KILLED this effect. Being too available, revealing too much. Everybody likes a little bit of MYSTERY. We like to WONDER about things. We like to THINK about things. We have a kind of "meta curiosity" interest in things we don't understand. We apply this "meta curiosity" in many ways that keeps our brains interested. Movies with twist endings, jokes with unexpected punch lines, even straight up puzzles. We LOVE to wonder about stuff. We LOVE things that seem to be more confusing that we first thought. More complex than we first thought. When you reveal too much, too soon, this creates the OPPOSITE effect. Like a movie that is boring that is predictable. Nobody likes those kinds of movies. Nobody likes those kinds of people. At least not when thinking about initial attraction and having fun. Sure, there is a time to be predictable and boring. Taking care of business, doing your job. But when having fun, meeting people, creating relationships, BE MYSTERIOUS. Be complex. Don't be boring.

  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb15Post.mp4 When it comes to sales, there are two extremes. On one side, you spend tons of time with each potential client. Build rapport, elicit criteria, leverage criteria, close, overcome objections, close, etc. On the other side you spend the absolute minimum time possible. You give a pitch in less than twenty seconds, and check for interest. If there is ANY interest whatsoever, you covertly put the burden on the customer to qualify themselves. Most beginning salespeople are terrified of this. If you don't have a lot of prospects, this is also very difficult. There are advantages and disadvantages to both sides. But if you find that sweet spot, you can do very, very well. How, specifically, do you find that sweet spot? First, you refine your initial pitch. To make it as compelling as you possibly can. To create as much initial interest as you can. With the right words, and the right hypnotic patterns, you can create interest in pretty much any qualified candidate. Once you create this interest, you begin reeling them in. How? By IMPLYING scarcity. Most people understand scarcity. But applying it is much more subtle. If you blatantly say anything that indicates scarcity, it usually won't work. But if you can IMPLY scarcity, so your target can DISCOVER the scarcity, it will work a million times better. One way to imply scarcity is the "my way or the highway" model. You don't blatantly say that. But you imply that. Once you've got the initial hook set. You imply something like: "This is what I've got to offer. If you're interested, I'll keep talking. But since I don't want to waste your time, any hint from you that this isn't 100% for you, as it is presented, and I'll go find somebody else. After all, plenty of people want this. If not you, somebody else." A funny thing happens when you try the persuade-everybody-with-a-pulse model. Many people have ZERO intention of buying whatever you are selling. But they LIKE being pitched to. They keep asking questions AS IF they are "just about" to buy. But they really have no intention of buying. But if you always make them qualify themselves, you'll not only not waste time on those folks, but you'll INCREASE buying temperature. If you IMPLY (not state overtly) that you've got plenty of other people to talk to, AND you make it clear that ANY uncertainty on their part will get you to LEAVE, it imply a ton of scarcity. And the most powerful buying force of all time. FOMO, or fear of missing out. Create this conversationally, and people will be begging you to stay.

  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb04Post.mp4 In the preface of Cialdini's book, he talked about how persuasion is really a science. Most, including people who get paid tons of money to come up with effective advertising for huge products, disagree. Most believe that advertising is an art. If you've ever watched the TV show, "Mad Men," it certainly seems like an art. Those skirt chasing, hard drinking dudes led by Don Draper didn't seem like the scientist types. Cialdini's reasons were simple. The things that influence happen outside of our conscious awareness. And we always come up with a post event, rational sounding reason why we THINK we did what we did. Neurologists tell us one of the main functions of the brain is an "after the fact" storytelling device. This makes a lot of sense, from a big picture point of view. The line is extremely blurry between primitive primates and humans. Our self-awareness and language evolved ON TOP OF the previous existing chimp brain. Our ancient instincts are still very much in control. We don't like that idea. We like the idea that WE, the part of us that is watching and choosing is doing the thinking and the choosing. But according to those who study the brain, this isn't the way it is. Which makes perfect sense considering Cialdini's "persuasion is science." The way we "don't" persuade is as follows. Something influences us. Those things that influence us happen OUTSIDE of our conscious awareness. We then MAKE UP a logical sounding reason why we did what we just did. We BELIEVE that reason. So we USE that reason to try and get somebody else to do what we just did. But since that's NOT the real reason, it rarely works. Our ego doesn't like to believe that we suck at anything. So it makes up ANOTHER story. One that says persuasion is an art. A completely mysterious process that few understand. But Cialdini wasn't just some goof with a bunch of random ideas. He did some serious field testing. And again and again, he proved that persuasion IS a science. Understand the science, and you'll never wonder why people do things again. This is hard to do. You'll have to get rid of the idea that your ego is the center of everything. That's likely the hardest part. We WANT to take credit. Our ego is like a little kid who is ALWAYS screaming for attention. Hey! Everybody! Look at me! Look what I can do! But if you CAN manage to turn off your ego? And you take the time to learn the SCIENCE of persuasion? You'll easily turn into a mad scientist. And the entire world will become your laboratory.

  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb02Post.mp4 I used to know this guy who lived in Japan. He used to be a magician. And he did still did magic as a hobby. Bar tricks, a few shows here and there. Loved to be the center of attention. Absolutely fearless. Would walk to the center of a crowd, start talking, and doing tricks. But he had an interesting business. He started out as a consultant, visiting businesses and helping them land clients. Eventually he started his own business training other consultants. One description of a consultant I heard, from another consultant, is they look at your watch and tell you what time it is. It's kind of surprising, but plenty of high level, high earning people have the same needs as us normal folk. They just need to be told what they are doing is OK. That their ideas and plans are OK. And plenty of people are willing to pay plenty of money to be told what they want to hear. This is one of the secrets of marketing. To tell people what they want to hear. We all have the same fears and desires. But most of us are too busy complaining about those fears and desires to notice that everybody else is saying the same thing. Joseph Campbell wrote a book called, "The Hero With 1000 Faces." The first of many books about the Hero's Journey. We all love that same Hero's Journey because it reflects our own fears and inhibitions. For example, most hero's don't leave their comfort zone voluntarily. They need to be forced out. Even modern hero's are more or less forced onto the journey. Why is this? We all feel the call, but most of us are too terrified to take a step outside of our comfort zone. We LOVE the idea of a mentor coming and FORCING us out. If you can combine these two basic ideas, you can make quite an impact. How's that? First, by understanding people's fears and concerns. Second, but putting them in a hero's journey format. Of course, simply because it's called the "Hero's Journey" doesn't need it has a be a three hour epic. That same, three-part structure can be delivered through a quick metaphor, a short anecdote, or even the recalling of something that happened to you earlier that day. When you combine these two structures, you'll find opportunities for them everywhere. It's kind of like rubbing your finger over the rim of a wine glass. With the right frequency, you can make them sing. Speak to people with the right frequency, and they'll never forget you. Use this however you like. But if you like to write, or like the idea of writing, your words will resonate with them on deep and profound levels. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion./hypnotic-copywriting/

  22. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct12Post.mp4 Pretty people have it much easier than non pretty people. This is something that everybody kind of feels, and knows, but it's extremely hard to talk about. But it happens to be one of those things that can lead to some stunning realizations. A rough metaphor would be if you have deep money anxiety. Like most people do. Most people hate to balance their bank account. You go to the ATM, and even if you know you just got paid, you got this horrible fear of getting the dreaded, "insufficient funds" message. This leads to all kinds of horrible, mostly subconscious, conclusions. The halo effect is similar. If we do admit there IS a halo effect, it's bad for everybody. At least initially. If you are one of the pretty people, it means that it's not really YOU that's doing the work. It's your genetic gifts. Nobody gives a crap about your ideas and thoughts and beliefs. So long as they are coming out of a pretty face, that's good enough. This is why naturally attractive people HATE to be told that their success is largely due to their looks. On the flip side, normal looking folks like us HATE the halo effect idea just as much. Since we're NOT genetically gifted with gorgeous looks, there's not much we'll EVER be able to do. Both sides are correct, but only in a VERY superficial way. Because with a little effort, you can CREATE your own halo effect. No matter HOW you look. How's that? First, let's understand exactly HOW the halo effect works. It's not conscious. It's purely subconscious. The halo effect is when we feel a deep physical attraction. A deep and ancient POSITIVE feeling. And whatever the pretty person is talking about will be UNCONSCIOUSLY associated with that ancient, deep, positive feeling. It's critical to understand this is NOT conscious. Which means if you can CREATE a positive feeling in the other person, it will have the SAME effect. Even better is a genetically based halo effect has only one setting. Because it's based on their physical presence. But a custom made halo effect is based on their unique dreams and desires and fantasies. Which means you can BUILD it as strongly as you want. And since it's based ONLY on the ideas that exist inside THEIR brain, it doesn't matter WHO you are. It doesn't matter WHAT you look like. Not only does it NOT matter who you are or what you look like, since EVERYBODY'S got an endless stream of desires in their brain, you can use this technique on anybody you want.

  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct08Post.mp4 In sales, they have an idea of a laydown. This is somebody who stumbles into your shop. You give them the memorized sales pitch, and they don't object at all. They look at you and say, "Wow, that's EXACTLY what I was looking for!" And then you give them the price. And they say, "Wow, that's way cheaper than I thought!" They buy whatever you are selling, and everybody lives happily ever after. This, however, is very, very rare. It's about as rare as walking up to a gorgeous girl and saying: "Hey, you don't know me, but wanna have sex?" And her thinking about it and saying: "Sure, why not? Let's go to my place!" This happens to be the most common male sex fantasy. And the basic plot of every "bang bus" porn movie. Guys driving down the street in a creepy van, pulling up to a super hot girl wearing very revealing clothing and asking her to come on in the van. "Sure, I was hoping to be asked to join a gang bang!" Of course, there is fantasy, and there is reality. The reality is you may talk to 50 girls, or guys, and get 2-3 phone numbers. And those may even be given to politely get rid of you. If you listen to any hiring sales pitch, every sales job sounds like easy money. All you have to do is memorize a pitch, and the customers will LOVE to buy. But just like extremely unrealistic sex fantasies, the reality is much different. The reality is you MAY get one laydown every few months. Not enough to even pay ONE month's rent. At same time, a memorized pitch SOUNDS like a good idea. If you can somehow come up with a really good memorized pitch, it's easy, once you memorize it. This idea is based on not having a regular, back and forth conversation. Having back and forth conversations with strangers is not something most people are comfortable doing. ESPECIALLY if the purpose of the conversation is to get something from them. Like a sale, or a number, or even them to agree to your idea. But this is ONLY uncomfortable from the position of the ASKER. If you are ultimately going to ASK THEM something, you know it. They know it. They can feel it. The solution? Don't ask. Instead, build up their desire. Turns out this is VERY EASY. It's kind of goofy at first, but when you get the hang of it, you'll be blown away by how simple it is. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/
  24. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug20Post.mp4 There's a psychological idea called the "pushback effect." If you've ever gotten into an argument online, you've no doubt experienced it. This, like most of our biases, is something that's easily seen in others, but very hard to see in ourselves. Which means it is an ego-based survival instinct. The pushback effect is triggered when somebody tries to counter your argument. The INSTINCT is to hold fast, regardless of the other person's logic. The MORE you come at the opponent with logic, the MORE they'll dig into their position. Our beliefs are very much associated with our identity. This goes along with the "beliefs as food" idea. We don't really eat food because it's healthy. We eat food because it tastes good. Way back in the day, this was perfect. The BETTER something tasted, the BETTER it was for us. Meat and fat were ideal, as they were dense sources of needed calories. Sweet fruit even better. Roots, and tubers, not so much. They were better than nothing, but not as good as a freshly killed slab of meat. Of course, today, with recent discoveries in chemistry, food is engineered to be delicious. But at the cost of health. Beliefs can operate the same way. We don't believe things because they are true. We believe things because the help us and make us feel good. So when somebody attacks our beliefs, it very much FEELS like they are attacking US. Hence the pushback effect. Somebody attacks our beliefs, which makes us dig in. Very much like a physical confrontation. If somebody pushes you, you push them back. Nearly all "fighting technology" is based on pushing back BETTER than they pushed you. Only few are based on NOT pushing back, but instead using THEIR energy. This can be done conversationally as well. Not in arguments, but in persuasion and influence. For any purpose. Sales, friend making and seduction. Since the pushback effect is based on ego, it's very HARD to turn off. But if you can manage to turn it off, and simply ask very easy to answer, linguistically calibrated questions, they will feel FANTASTIC. Even enjoyable conversations between friends have the pushback effect. Each person is very subconsciously trying to OUTDO the other. But once you shut off your ego, they will be able to EXPAND. The more they EXPAND the better they feel. And when you carefully allow them to expand their ego, they'll be willing to do whatever you want. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/get-anybody/
  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug18Post.mp4 There are a quite a lot of truisms. The problem with truisms is three fold. One is that they are popular. Two is that they are true. Three is where the problems begin. It's how our brain treats "knowledge" and "experience." If you hear something once, it might seem like a good idea. But if you hear it a bunch of times, and eventually begin to repeat it yourself, then it starts to FEEL very familiar. But familiar in a superficial way. Not in a deep, experiential way. You can tell that somebody has this level of "knowledge" when you ask them to explain EXACTLY what they mean. But they can't. They have a weird combination of KNOWING that something is true. They know it as well as their own name. But they can't explain HOW or WHY it's true. When people have ideas, you can tell how they explain them. They say things like, "Well if you think about it, it makes sense." Since that's how THEY experience it inside their own brain. They've ACCEPTED the idea from others. The idea makes them feel good. They've thought about that idea a whole bunch of times. But they've never take the time to actually take apart the idea. This type of thing pops up ALL OVER THE PLACE in self help and self development. Entire seminars are filled with gurus saying these truisms in a whole bunch of different ways. But never once explaining how EXACTLY to apply them. Here's an example. A very common, and often repeated marketing strategy is as follows: "Encourage their dreams, allay their fears, and throw rocks at their enemies." This SOUNDS fantastic. Who wouldn't want their dreams encouraged? Who wouldn't want their fears allayed? Who wouldn't want help throwing rocks at their enemies? Everybody would. Which is why this is GOOD advice and TERRIBLE advice at the same time. Good advice because it rings very true. Terrible advice because it doesn't explain HOW, specifically, to do that. For example, how, exactly would you ENCOURAGE somebody's dreams? You could say something silly and common: "You should TOTALLY go after your dreams!" Or ask them what their dreams are. And then say: "Yeah! You should totally do that!" Problem is that this is the SAME strategy that every other fake goof tries. If you went into an upscale department store, and tried on an expensive shirt, THIS is what they'd say: "That shirt looks great! You'll DEFINITELY get laid!" This is an ATTEMPT to encourage your dreams. Unfortunately, it's the same fake line that EVERY salesperson uses. Luckily, there is a very specific set of linguistic techniques that you can learn. To make it very easy to elicit and BUILD up their dreams. And some more specific linguistic techniques to ENCOURAGE their dreams. In ways they've NEVER experienced.
