  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar28Post.mp4 A long time ago I used to go to this Thai restaurant. They had a pretty good chicken dish, don't forget the specifics. Very spicy. I would always go there in the early afternoon. I liked to read the business paper while enjoying a leisurely lunch. Study all the stock and commodity charts. After the lunch crowd had thinned out. This was back when I was learning about a lot of covert hypnosis and NLP patterns. Now, a lot of "techniques" involve using patterns, etc. on waitresses. This isn't one of t

  4. Thinking about brainpower requires brainpower. Brainpower is different than other skills. Very different. If you had zero upper body strength, you would know it. You could see somebody doing a pushup, and not be able to. You could see somebody benching 300 lbs, and not be able to. You could imagine what you couldn't do. But with brainpower, you are limited to what you can imagine. Meaning that we can't imagine what we can't imagine. One of the ways this presents itself is when we look at something AFTER it has been figured out. Before, it's one
  5. Kids have a game they call "telephone." Maybe you've played it. The teacher whispers a sentence into one kid's ear. Then that kid whispers that into another kids' ear, and so on. By the time the "sentence" goes around the room, it's completely changed. Usually, this is seen as a fun game, but also an example of how we humans tend to mix up ideas. It's generally seen as a human weakness, that we can't our brains as perfect repeaters. If you had a class full of robots, for example, they wouldn't mess up the message. But if you think of all the stuff humans
  6. One of the presuppositions of NLP is that flexibility is better, all else equal. Meaning if there is some contest, whoever is the most flexible in solving problems will win the contest. If you are a football team, and all you can do is run up the middle, and defend against runs up the middle, you won't do well against a team who can do everything. Short passes, long passes, no-huddle offenses, etc. The team that can respond differently to different situations will generally do better than a team with only a handful of plays. One of the reasons that Alexander the Great
  7. The world is a complicated place. Lucky for us humans, we come pre-built with certain filters. Some of these are programmed in, some are flexible. For example, we seem to come pre-built with filters that cause instant fear when we see a creepy crawly thing scurry across the floor. Maybe there was once was a race of people who thought snakes were cute, but they all got bit and died before they could pass that gene on. On the other side, we all are drawn to bright colors. If you were gazing across an ancient landscape, and you saw a cluster of colors, it usually mea
  8. There is a lot of interesting correlations between variables. Even while most of us will agree that "correlation doesn't mean causation," we think so intuitively. In fact, you might consider the idea that we ONLY say "correlation doesn't mean causation" when we hear an idea we DON'T like. It's something that happens on a subconscious level. Evolutionary psychologists tell us that it was one of the things that made our brains faster. And in the early days of evolution, fast brains were better than slow brains. You can built a machine for speed, or you can build for
  9. One critical skill to develop is to be internally motivated. Especially when external factors are pulling you every which way. There are plenty of things that we humans know are "good" but very few of us do them. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy. Save money. There are two elements that make choosing for yourself very difficult. Social proof and authority. Tons of experiments have shown that when these two things are pushing us one way, it's very hard to go the other way. One of the reasons is something called "Meta Programs." These are similar t
  10. Advertisers are very clever in how they leverage human nature. Two aspects of influence are scarcity, and commitment and consistency. Scarcity is well known. All else equal, the scarcer something is, the more we want it. An experiment demonstrated this very well. Some guy set up a cookie experiment. The had a jar of cookies, and he asked people to eat a cookie, and then fill out a questionnaire about the cookie. The thing that made the most difference, as far as "cookie satisfaction," was how many cookies were in the jar. When the jar was full (no scarci
  11. Many people know the story about the frog and the scorpion. The scorpion begs the frog for a ride across the river. The frog complains, says you're going to sting me. Scorpion says, no I promise, I won't. Frog agrees and they take off across the river. Halfway across the river, scorpion stings the frog. Frog gets paralyzed, and they start to sink. Frog asks why, scorpion says it's my nature. I can't help it. Moral of the story? Depends on who you're telling it to and why. It could be a warning. To avoid certain people. Even though th
  12. The Milgram Experiment showed how vulnerable we are to authority. A scientist in a lab coat told a person to give another person electric shocks. Part of a "memory test." The person receiving the shocks weren't really getting shocked. They were only pretending. The REAL study was to see how high of a shock the giver would give. Turns out people gave WAY more shocks that the researchers anticipated. Enough to kill somebody. All because a dude in a lab coat (an authority figure) said it was OK. And not just SOME people. MOST people. They've
  13. There are skills and meta skills Individual skills are virtually infinite. For example, if you wanted to be a "skilled" computer programmer, you would never be finished. Every time a new language came out, you'd have to learn it. Same with every other technology based skill. But even non-technology bases skills are virtually infinite. Take storytelling for example. Storytelling has been going on before recorded history. All you need is spoken language. Being the head storyteller of any ancient village or tribe would be a respected tradition. If
  14. Imagine a high school sports team, any sport, that never practiced. Maybe they had try-outs, and the coach chose all the players. The next time they got together was on game day. Maybe the coach would email them their positions the day before. Clearly, they would get destroyed. Most teams practice 95% of the time, and spend 5% on actual game time. And if you take into account all the practice the players do individually, the ration (practice:playing) is even bigger. Imagine if you knew you had to give a piano recital. But you'd never played the piano bef
  15. I used to watch this cooking competition show. It had three famous chefs, and three amateurs. They would work in teams. But the trick was they wouldn't know what ingredients they were getting until the show started. And each team had twenty minutes to make something. Since these guys were world class chefs, they could mix together some very basic ingredients and come up with some pretty cool stuff. Most of us, whenever we think about cooking something new, we use a recipe. I've taken a few cooking classes, and they've always been around recipes. But at s
  16. There are two ways to get over your fears. (Well, three, if you include running away from them) One is to face them. That is the quickest way. Since most fears are false, or at the very least way worse in our brains than in real life, once you face them, you'll feel a huge sense of relief. However, this is pretty scary. Another way is to ease up to them. Practice slightly in your mind. Practice holding confident thoughts in mind. Essentially, fears "work" because they (whatever collection of things outside that trigger our fears) force us to think
  17. Meaning is very flexible. At least some of the time. If you're taking a test in school, then there is only one correct answer. But most of the time, there is no "correct" answer. Sure, some "answers" are better than others. The "answers" depend on what you want. For example, if you wanted to convince somebody to tell you what time it was, there are "useful" ways and "not so useful" ways. Meaning some techniques would be much more likely to get the time AND a positive response. Other techniques would be less likely. For example, if you asked somebod
  18. What's the difference between studying and doing? Once you become a doctor, you have a couple of choices. You can work at a hospital, or you can go into private "practice." Why do they call it "practice?" Don't doctors have to take tests and do long and grueling internships to prove they already know what they are doing? That's just to get started. Every patient is different. Sometimes they see things they've never seen in medical school. They check with colleagues, read up on the latest research. No doctor ever gets to a point in their career where
  19. Many NLP techniques are taught as "once and done." If you're a trainer, this is a goldmine way to make a lot of money. You teach an expensive seminar, and the only place to learn and practice these magical NLP techniques is in that seminar. Of course, seminars are cool experiences. You meet some cool people, talk about cool things that you would otherwise not talk about. These can be life changing events. I saw a documentary on one famous guru on Netflix. They talked to some of his fans. Many of them said they'd followed him all over the world. Atte
  20. We humans have been telling each other stories for a long time. Long before written language was invented. What was the purpose of these stories? Generally speaking, anything that is ubiquitous to human culture serves a lot of different purposes. But think of stories as motivational tools. But not like we think of today's "motivational speakers." Today's motivational speakers are more like entertainers. They rouse us up, we feel the energy, but then we go home. And pretty soon, it wears off. Stories that TRULY motivate us work on a much different le
  21. When I was a kid I loved puzzles. Not the jigsaw type, the bigger ones. These small, 3D objects that could only fit together in one configuration. Once you figured it out, it was less interesting. Many people treat life as a puzzle. Like there's a "right way" and a "wrong way" to do things. To be sure, there are some things that are DANGEROUS to do. Like robbing banks is probably not a good way to make a living. But within the commonly accepted morals, ethics and laws, there isn't really any "rules." Of course, many people don't like this idea.
  22. I've never been very good at following the rules. When I was a little kid, I sort of "discovered" that you could get away with anything so long as you played dumb. If you got caught, you just said, "I thought it would be OK?" Of course this only worked for so long. Once in biology class, we were doing a chemistry experiment. We had two different liquids, and our teacher said not to mix them under any circumstances. Which, of course, caused me to mix them just to see what the big deal was. Nothing really happened except me getting kicked out of class. Som
  23. Blast any belief to smithereens... https://mindpersuasion.com/sleight-of-mouth-examples-2/
  24. I love watching movies. All kinds, but in particular I'm a big fan of the "found footage" genre. Many people think they suck, but for some reason I find them entertaining. A normal group of people doing normal things and then a bunch of ghosts or aliens or something shows up and kills everybody. There are some really good ones, and some not so good ones. It's easy to understand why they are pretty popular, at least with movie makers. They're cheap to make (you don't need a lot of equipment or expensive actors) and the potential is huge, due to viral marketing.
