  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec19Post.mp4 Once I was at a party with a bunch of friends. This was a long, long time ago. I don't know how it started, but we were huddled in a corner. Every time a girl walked by, one of my idiot friends would whisper a pick up line into my ear. I would say it, and the girl would look at me and laugh at how stupid the pick up line was. It morphed into a weird competition between my friends. With me as the unwitting point man. Since they were telling me what to say, it didn't seem nearly as terrifying as it would have
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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 i
  5. 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. B
  6. 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 fas
  7. 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 an
  8. 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. Did
