  1. Hypnosis and humor have a lot in common. Both use ambiguity in a very specific way. The Milton Model, created by and named after Dr. Milton Erickson, carefully uses vague and confusing language. You can use it to create a structural story, but with a lot of vague elements. The guy listening to the story will sort of "get" the structure, but he'll have to fill in the vague information with his own content. The final feeling is a story told TO him by the hypnotist, but it's filled up with a lot of his own content. So he feels as though he's actually gone through the story himself, even though he's only been listening. There are also plenty of short term, brain-fading techniques. Like when I went fishing with my brother and a couple of his buddies last weekend. He was telling us about when they went to this seminar to learn hypnosis for sales. And then he was telling them that when you learn hypnosis and use it for both sales and seduction. You can use it this way to get a lot more money and get a lot more sex. In that short description (involving two things everybody wants, sex and money) there are TONS of undefined pronouns. He, they, etc. Since they are surrounding interesting ideas, namely about learning hypnosis to make money and get more sex, we tend to fill those pronouns in with whatever works best for us. When using Milton Model hypnosis, there are plenty of ways to leverage these purposely vague language patterns. When the vagueness is stretched out over time, it creates a very squishy feeling in your brain. But when the vagueness or ambiguity is quick, it creates a much different feeling. Why did the boy study on an airplane? Because he was in high school. In that particularly lame joke, the word "high" has two meanings at once. You'll find this in plenty of humor. One of my favorites comes from Groucho Marx: Last night I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know! This works by creating a meaning that is assumed, and then quickly changing the meaning to something else. All three of these forms of conversational hypnosis are great fun in social situations. Turning people's brains into pancake batter, making people giggle at silly things, or even getting them to fixate on fantastic ideas (sex and money) surrounded by tons of vagueness. These three hypnotic powers will make you a party super star. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/party-hypnosis/
  2. There are a lot of goofy ideas about hypnosis that come from the movies. The stereotypical movie hypnotist is a guy who just snaps his fingers and puts people into a trance. Then he delivers a few post-hypnotic suggestions and then snaps his fingers again. The poor guy comes out of trance, and does goofy things. One typical trope that shows up occasionally is when the hypnotist dies. He'll put some guy in a trance as part of a stage show. And then give him a post hypnotic suggestion to only cluck like a chicken. Then the guy will be clucking like a chicken. Everybody in the audience is laughing, etc. But then the hypnotist dies. The joke being that without the hypnotist to UNDO the trance, the poor guy will be clucking like a chicken the rest of his life. In reality, hypnosis is much more complicated. And while it IS possible to embed post hypnotic suggestions, they're not quite like they make it in the movies. How, exactly, do you do it? One way is with the cooperation of the subject. For example, suppose a guy wants to quit smoking. And the hypnotist gives him the suggestion to think about breathing clean, mountain air every time he gets a cigarette craving. In this situation, putting in the post-hypnotic suggestion is an attempt to AUGMENT a concurrently existing CONSCIOUS desire. The post hypnotic suggest will help the guy REMEMEMBER, but he still has to do the work on his own. To FORCE his brain to take time to imagine the clean mountain air. Hypnosis is not nearly as AUTOMATIC as we'd like to think. Especially when it comes to making people do things they WOULDN'T otherwise do. Like cluck like a chicken up on stage in front of a bunch of strangers. But you CAN use hypnosis to slowly move people AWAY from things they fear, and TOWARD things they want. Especially if something is keeping them stuck. This is the main reason why we LOVE telling each other stories. Ever since the dawn of time, people have been telling each other stories. These stories are not random. Nor are they purely for entertainment. One of the MAIN reasons for most ancient stories is expressly to put in these post-hypnotic suggestions. This is the classic hero's journey story. What is the post hypnotic suggestion embedded within the hero's journey? When you see the super villain, you will feel courage, and you will be MOTIVATED to kill him. This type of story is PERFECT for ancient humans who had to survive in a very scary world. And who had to often face large, scary animals. Having a HUGE COLLECTION of hero's journey stories in their brains gave them the confidence. You can do the same thing. Create the ideal stories, with the ideal post hypnotic suggestions built in. Then you can get people to do whatever you want. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/storytelling-magic/
  3. Many things come in two's. Night and day. Eating and digesting. Being awake and being asleep. Work and leisure. In economics, they classify all behaviors into two categories. Labor and leisure. Labor is a DISUTILITY. Which means it kind of sucks. Leisure is a UTILTIY. Which means it DOESN'T suck. We LIKE leisure. We don't like labor. We only DO labor so we can enjoy our leisure. Both can be improved. If you can improve your "labor skills" you can make more money. Have a better and more rewarding career. Live in a better neighborhood, have sexier friends. But what about leisure? For most folks, leisure simply means turning ON the TV, and turning OFF your brain. That IS easy. That IS enjoyable. Especially if you have a couple six packs and a sack of burritos. And if there's some good TV on, life couldn't be better. Right? Nope! Lucky for us, your leisure skills CAN be improved just like your labor skills. What does this mean? Becoming more efficient with the remote control? Finding ever more delicious burrito shops? Well, that would be a start. Nothing wrong with wandering the Earth searching for the perfect burrito. But having fun is more fun when there are other people. After all, having a burrito-TV-beer party is more fun with friends that it is alone. Anything is better with close friends than it is alone. And the more you INTERACT with those friends, the more fun you'll have. The more easily you can interact with PEOPLE in general, the more fun you'll have. Turns out there is a WHOLE BUNCH of social skills you can use ONLY for having fun. When work is done and your boss is out of your mind. What kind of skills? Party skills. Joke telling skills. On the spot humor skills. Story telling and anecdote skills. Super outgoing confident and playful skills. Turns out you can build up these PARTY SKILLS just as much as you can build any other skill. So much that you can be the life of ANY party. Even if there isn't a party. Waiting for the bus, standing in line at the supermarket, flirting with baristas and waitresses and bartenders and shop clerks. With enough party skills you can MAKE a party happen anywhere. And with anybody. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/party-hero/
  4. There are a lot of paradoxes in human life. One was explained fairly well by Bryan Cranston, the guy who played Walter White on "Breaking Bad." He said most everybody is very reluctant to "let it all hang out" emotionally. But as an actor, you HAVE to do that. He also said that the more you do that (let it all hang out) the more of the paradox you see. Our deep fears is that the more we let it all hang out, the more likely we'll get rejected. But the opposite happens. The more we show our true selves, the more people will absolutely CRAVE our presence. But we spend most of our lives TERRIFIED of sharing our true selves. Which of course, creates an equally confusing paradox. We are terrified of sharing our TRUE selves in a fearless way. Since we think THAT will get us rejected. So instead, we are very careful how we express ourselves. We only express ourselves safely. We say safe things with safe energy and safe gestures. And THAT is what makes us UNINTERESTING to other people. Because playing it safe is pretty boring. Everybody can do it. Everybody DOES do it. So it's not special. Yet we all have this deep desire to BE SEEN by who we really are. At the same time, we are TERRIFIED to show ourselves the way we really are. This is why we HOPE for some magical person who will somehow "notice" our true selves. Problem is, this creates a world where EVERYBODY is waiting around for SOMEBODY ELSE to come and "notice them." Nobody is willing to share themselves. We all want the OTHER PERSON to go first. It's like one of those dances back in junior high school. Boys on one side, girls on the other. Everybody looking across the room waiting for somebody else to make the first move. One of the things we tell ourselves, is that we "don't know what to say." But it's not really WHAT we say that's important. It's HOW we say it. Not just energetically, but structurally. And the energy and structure of our expressions have NOTHING to do with the words we use. Because human interest, human desire, are MUCH DEEPER than simply the words. If you can learn to resonate on this deep, unconscious level, people will CRAVE your presence. How do you do this? Like This: http://mindpersuasion.com/party-hypnosis/
  5. One of the key ideas in Psycho-Cybernetics is to never compare yourself to others. This is also a helpful economic strategy. If you are always comparing yourself to your neighbors, you'll end up chasing an unachievable goal. Because no matter how well you do something, you can ALWAYS find somebody else who can do it better. This is similar to the dangers of being the "fastest gun" in any western town. As soon as you are recognized as the fastest gun, every goof west of the Mississippi will come and test you. Which means part of the job description of being the fastest gun is ALWAYS having gunfights to prove you are the fastest. Not a very healthy occupation! We humans are always finding clever ways to out do each other. You might even say it's part of our nature. We are, after all, very hierarchical social animals. Even when hanging out with friends, it's common to try and "outdo" each other by the stories we tell. Especially at parties when trying to "impress" people you've just met. If YOU want to impress them, there's a chance others are as well. And the fastest gun fight is on. Of course, you can bring a secret weapon. One that very few people know about. Instead of focusing on the CONTENT, the actual things people talk about, you can use some structural elements. Structure based communication hits people on a much deeper level than content level communication. Using a gunfight metaphor, being a fastest gun only works against people that just stand in one place. Using structural language would be like having the ability to zip in and out of existence wherever and whenever you wanted to. Effectively allowing you to dodge bullets. On a structural level, this will make you stand out FAR above everybody else. No matter HOW "interesting" their "content" is. But being able to manipulate the STRUCTURE of communication, it will be like having magic powers. Which means when they see you coming, everybody just gives up and gives in. To whatever you want.

  6. The reason we humans like to mingle with other humans is we are social animals. The reason we go places when we can potentially meet new people is because meeting new people is interesting. Especially if we "click" with those new people. Either friends or lovers, meeting new friends with whom we share a lot in common is a very comfortable and deeply human feeling. The very basic common strategy when doing that is we try our best to make ourselves stand out somehow. This is why we are careful about what we wear, and even how we speak and behave when we are around new and interesting people. This is the essential strategy behind "peacocking." To wear clothing, jewelry, or anything to make you IMMEDIATELY stand out from the crowd. So when people approach you, they have a PRESET idea that YOU are DIFFERENT from everybody else. This can be a risky strategy. Because you have to have a personality that is strong enough to withstand all the attention. Which is why few people feel comfortable peacocking too much. Recently there was a very famous wedding. And one thing that happens when there is ANY famous gathering, is they look at all the clothing people wore. Mostly the ladies. At the same time, each person who goes to this famous gathering, KNOWS this is going to happen. So, at the same time, they want to STAND OUT, but not too much. This is the same strategy most of us use when we go places. We want to STAND OUT, but not too much. One thing VERY FEW people think about when they go places socially, where meeting new people is acceptable, is to work on their communication skills. This is a very clever way of using the Cialdini law of comparison and contrast. If you think a movie is going to be average, and it BEATS your expectations, you'll think it's MORE entertaining than it was. If a stock is expected to report earnings of $1.02 a share, and instead they report earnings of $1.05 a share, it will rocket up. The idea of "beating expectations" is VERY POWERFUL. So when you show up anywhere wearing fairly normal looking clothing, but your communication skills are EXCEPTIONAL, then you will beat expectations. And you'll be FAR more memorable than some goof wearing a huge top hat and dressed up like the mad hatter. In fact, extreme peacocking REQUIRES you have an extreme personality to match the clothes. But if you are dressed normally, but have a communication style that is just a bit on the funny-crazy-hypnotic side, people will NEVER forget you. Kind of like you're own secret agent party strategy.

  7. Optical illusions are cool. I remember way back in the day, when those "3D-Images" became popular. The kind that look like a random paint splatter, or some simple background design. But if you stare at it long enough, you can see a 3D object pop out. There are all kinds of optical illusions. There was one recently that made the rounds on social media. I had to read the "spoiler" to find out what it was. At first glance, it looked like a side view of a regular brick wall. The bricks were various shades of faded red. The cement was crumbling. Didn't look like anything was "hidden." But smack dab in the middle was a huge cigar. And once you saw it, you could not UNSEE it. That's what makes it so cool. Before I read the spoiler, ALL I could see were the bricks. But after I read the spoiler, no matter how much I tried I COULD NOT see those same bricks again. Most people think, or rather assume, that "optical illusions" are the ONLY kind of illusions. But there are other kinds. If you listen to static long enough, you might start to hear voices. Which is pretty freaky if you're all alone and you've got one of those "ghost TV's" that keeps turning itself on! But there are much more powerful "auditory illusions." The kind you can create with words. Since most of us speak unconsciously, we don't even consider this idea. But when you take a little bit of effort to choose your words, and the content they describe, it can have a PROFOUND effect on your listeners. You can hide deeper meanings within simple stories. Just like those 3D images hidden in the noise. And people will listen to you just like they stare at those objects. They'll listen intently, wondering what's hidden inside. And like the cigar picture, your stories will be told and retold. Giving you extreme flexibility. What messages will you hide within your language? Learn How: Hypnotic Storytelling
