  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July27Post.mp4 We like people with strong frames. This is as instinctive as liking food that tastes good. We like people who are confident that they can handle things that come up. But unfortunately, there are very few people like this in real life. And the "alpha types" in the movies are almost always incorrectly written. Very serious, never smiling, always scowling, kind of a brooding, loner type. What would a REAL alpha be like? Let's imagine this from an ancient, instinctive perspective. Alpha, of course, is a leader. The guy who figures out what to do. The guy who makes sure EVERYBODY is taken care of. The guy you can approach and ask for help if you need to. The guy who makes sure that the team brings home the food. And that they are all safe. And the alpha is the guy who inspires the tribe. The guy who motivates them to do the scary stuff. Like an ideal football coach. Not mean, not a pushover, but a guy who wants you to win, and wants you to win by stepping up. I had a friend that was a baseball coach. He had a very clever way of testing his players to see if they were in "game mode." For example, if he had a pitcher that was struggling, he'd walk out to the mound. He wanted to test his frame of mind. If he was relaxed and confident, he would pass the test. If was too nervous, too worried to concentrate, he wouldn't pass the test. What was the test? A simple joke. The kind jokes baseball players tell each other when they are relaxed, and clowning. Humor is a very, very versatile tool. He would watch the pitcher's face, and see how he reacted. If there was no reaction, he was too stressed. On the other hand, if he could forget the game just for a second, and laugh, then he was OK. Consider that a fine sense of humor is a very necessary alpha trait. If you take yourself too seriously, it's going to give off weird vibes. A sense of humor can be considered the ULTIMATE alpha trait. Why? Having a SENSE of humor requires very fine emotionally calibrated intelligence. You have to know when to listen to somebody they are being serious. You have to know when their emotions shift, and the right time to deliver a humorous reframe. Even better is if you can experience your own problems and make jokes about them. Both to yourself, and to others. This demonstrates to others that no matter what happens, you won't lose your mental balance. This is a true definition of leadership. By effectively being able to lead yourself, you'll easily be able to lead others. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/humor-brilliance/

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec13Post.mp4 Some jokes are funny and hit you very quickly. These are the playground joked we've all heard as kids. Short riddles, that have something called a "phonetic ambiguity" in the answer. What did the beach say when the tide came in? Long time no sea/long time no see. These are best when heard, and not read. Since you hear the two meanings at once. It takes very little brain energy to understand the joke. This is why they are considered "cute" and more for kids. If you tried to tell this joke at a party hoping to impress a bunch of investors, it would not work. There are some jokes that are a little more stretched out. The kind that take a little bit more brain power to understand. Still based on a kind of linguistic ambiguity. Like the famous Groucho Marx joke: Last night I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know. Because the joke requires you go back in time slightly and recalibrate your understanding of the phrase, "in my pajamas," it's a slightly more "grownup" kind of humor. Much longer jokes are based on a continuous "funny feeling" in your brain. Well written comedies, for example, have a kind of low level comedy energy throughout. This is very hard to do. For every one comedy that keeps you in stitches, there are many more that are pretty lame. You can do the same thing with compliments. You can use the easy to think, easy to say, and easy to understand compliments. These are the kind that pretty much everybody uses. Nice shoes. Wow, you're really pretty! You have gorgeous eyes! But you can also give compliments just like you can give humor. Humor is for anybody within earshot. Compliments are directed at somebody. So the more effort you make in your compliment, the more they'll resonate in your target. The more personal your compliments are, the more they'll feel them on a much deeper level. These types of compliments can't be memorized. But they also send a much more powerful message to the receiver. That you see BEYOND what everybody else sees. Everybody can easily see, and appreciate their eyes, shoes, etc. But few are willing to take the time to really SEE them. The more effort you put in to noticing something about them, the more they'll appreciate you. Even better if you see something that falls under three important categories. One, is it is something they LIKE about themselves. Two, it is something nobody else has noticed. Three, it is something that makes them unique in some way. Hit all three, and they will NEVER forget you. Ever. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/cold-reading/
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov16Post.mp4 Everybody loves a sense of humor. Humor comes in two levels. Pre-planned, and spontaneous. One is based on an understanding of the structure of humor. Sometimes guys who write the funniest comedy movies and TV shows are the LAST guys you'd think are masters of humor. Other actors and comedians who look naturally gifted are really only excellent performers. I had a friend once who took his kid to see a famous comedian. The kid really admired the guy. The father and son made their way backstage to meet the guy. His normal, off stage persona was much, much different than his on stage persona. On stage was really energetic and charismatic. But when they found him back stage, he was angry, smoking a cigarette and was radiating "leave me alone" energy. It's rare you find somebody who IS both. Meaning they not only have a genius comedic brain, but they have a genuinely funny, in the moment personality. For most people, having a good sense of humor doesn't mean standing up on stage and telling jokes. It doesn't mean being a behind the scenes comedy genius. It just means being able to see, create, and appreciate humor as it happens in the moment. Not just to be a party clown. Not just to be the entertainer, but to truly understand the structure of humor. To realize that the linguistic structure of humor is very similar to the structure of hypnosis. Not the swing your watch and fall asleep hypnosis. But the conversational type. The kind that lets you look in between their words. To look in between their thoughts. And twist around ideas and beliefs and perspectives. To take the ordinary and mundane, and spin it to the fantastic and exhilarating. It's one thing to have a head full of jokes. To be able to take any conversational topic and say: "That's like when this guy walked into a shoe store with a penguin..." But it is a completely different level of skills to MAKE UP humor on the spot. Based on ANYTHING anybody is saying. This is a skill. And like any skill, this takes practice. But it's a skill that few people know about. Few will even understand HOW you do what you do. And since it's a skill, the more you practice, the better you'll get. The better you get, the more people will admire you. Remember you. Want you. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.teachable.com/p/party-hypnosis/
  6. Ambiguity is fun. A lot of fun. However, most people only use ambiguity on one level. By pointing it out. This can get you pretty far. For example, a lot of newspaper headlines and product labels use ambiguity. For example, the other day I was in a drug store. I saw a box of plastic flatware. Knives, forks, spoons. The description on the box said, "Entertaining Flatware." The meaning was that this is flatware you use when entertaining. When having a party. So the word "entertaining" is meant to be an adjective. But what if you assume it's a verb? Like you have a bunch of flatware, and you don't want the flatware to get bored. So you need to figure out a way to entertain the flatware. So you stroll down to your local library and find a book on entertaining flatware. The kind of jokes flatware likes, etc. Or what if you assume the word "entertaining" is a an adjective, but not the way the product makers intended. For example, you have some flatware that doesn't just sit there. They stand up, jump around, maybe do a bit of break dancing, sing a few songs. That's some pretty entertaining flatware! You could even set them out on the sidewalk, put a hat in front, and people would toss in money while your flatware was dancing around and singing songs. This is just from ONE goofy product label. When you train your brain to see ambiguity, you'll see it EVERYWHERE. A particularly funny way to use it is to see it in the everyday language of others. And assume the goofiest thing possible. Somebody talks about baking a cake and needing to pick up some baking flour. That phrase, "Pick up some baking flour" has TONS of misunderstandings you can use. Going down to the local nightclub where all the baking flour hangs out and trying some pick up lines. The difficulties of taking flour when it's in the process of baking something. For EXTRA party fun, you can play it as straight as you possibly can. And keep going off on goofy tangents based on the incorrectly taken meaning. This simple trick will make you one of the most welcomed party guest in town. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/party-hypnosis/
  7. A common desire for more people is to be funnier. To develop a "sense" of humor. That word, "sense" is a clue on what humor really is. When we "sense" something, we perceive something OUTSIDE of ourselves. So having a "sense" of humor indicates you can PERCEIVE not only joke opportunities, but the energy that is most receptive to joke energy. This means not only being able to read the energy, but having the linguistic dexterity to USE whatever people are saying, and flip it around into a joke. Something funny. If you NEVER take any time to learn how to do this, you'll have the same ideas everybody else has. Namely that "some people" are naturally funny, and "some people" naturally aren't. But one very POWERFUL reframe about is that ANYTHING can be perceived as a skill. Which means that ANYTHING can be improved. The trick is to figure out the smallest things to practice. And when it comes to having a sense of humor, there are two basic areas. One is "inner game" and the other is "outer game." When it comes to reading the energy, this is paradoxically an inner game skill. The reason most people can't read energy is NOT because they lack "energy reading skills." It is because they are WASTING too much energy being nervous and anxious. This is why for most of us, it's MUCH EASIER to read the energy when we're around friends and family. But if you practice some very easy inner game exercises, pretty soon you'll feel JUST as comfortable around strangers as you do your best friends. Once you build up your inner game, then it's a matter of developing the outer game linguistic skills of humor. Turns out that HUMOR and HYPNOSIS are very closely related. Conversational hypnosis is based on a lot of AMBIGUITY. When you speak in purposely vague language, so the listener fills in the blanks on their own. And feels much more "ownership" of the message, since it's mostly THEIR content they filled in the blanks with. But it turns out that using ambiguity for humor is MUCH EASIER. Using ambiguity for convert hypnosis takes a lot of practice. But using ambiguity for humor requires ONLY a few one-line reframes. Take anything they said, and reframe it to mean something silly. Combine this easy, external game linguistic skill with your inner game exercises and you can develop a very POWERFUL sense of humor. As strong as you want.

  8. One of my favorite stories from science is the discovery of quantum physics. This has NOTHING to do with quantum physics itself, only HOW it was discovered. A bunch of the smartest scientists on earth were sitting around, trying to figure out a problem. They would heat up this hunk of stuff, and watch measure the heat curve as it cooled off. Each time they tried to explain what was happening, they got it wrong. They'd come up with a theory, figure out a way to describe that theory mathematically, and then repeat the experiment. If the heat-curve match their prediction, they were right. If it didn't they were wrong, and they'd have to come up with a different theory. Each theory was a "model." And when their model didn't work, they threw it away. This is VERY uncommon. Most people fall in love with their model. In fact, many people (even scientists) when they see the world doesn't match their model, they think the WORLD is wrong. This is one of the reasons why the world's economy is so messed up. Goofball economists are so IN LOVE with their economic models, they continue to NOT BE ABLE to understand what's really going on. But if you can DITCH your model if it's not working, you understanding pretty much anything is pretty simple. One way we get caught is confusing "descriptive" models and "prescriptive" models. Descriptive models is just watching what happens. Prescriptive models is when we think we know what SHOULD happen. If you try to understand human nature through prescriptive models, meaning you have an idea of how people SHOULD behave, and they don't behave that way, we goofy humans can be VERY frustrating. But if you just find the right DESCRIPTIVE model, and forget about how you think people "should" behave, we are pretty simple. So simple that it's easy to play with our brains. Especially when you understand that our language is based on a set of ASSUMPTIONS that most people aren't even aware of. If you speak and behave in a way that BREAKS those assumptions, people will have NO IDEA what's going on. Now, most of the time this happens when some lunatic comes up on the street and starts speaking gibberish. This creates a fear response. Because their WHOLE BODY is radiating "gibberish." This is very frightening. But when your non-verbal communication is normal and congruent, but your language is breaking the rules of expected grammar, THAT's when you can have some fun. Instant trances, goofy laughs, and wide eyes of excitement. All in seconds. Click Here To Learn More
