  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug25Post.mp4 Binge watching has become pretty common. In some ways, this is a kind of sad state of the world. The word "binge" used to be associated with bad behaviors. Binge drinking, where you'd drink until you passed out, and then start drinking again as soon as you regained consciousness. Binge eating, where you eat way more than you need. Or binge and purging, where you eat and then make yourself vomit, so you can eat some more. But binging is now accepted. Even considered normal. When a new TV show drops o
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug12APost.mp4 One interesting study was done on attractiveness. Both men and women. They took a bunch of guys and girls, and had them walk around through social areas. Then the researchers followed them, showed people their pictures. And they asked, based only on their brief memory, to rate them on a scale of 1-10. This was the first half of the experiment. Then they repeated this experiment, and changed only one thing. They went to a bunch of other similar social areas. And again, they quickly followed the test su
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug07Post.mp4 There are two "best case" scenarios or outcomes if you are proficient salesperson. One is to eventually start your own company. This is risky, but it can come with massive rewards. The guys who invented the Go-Pro camera, essentially a camera on a stick, are ultra rich. But in order to make Go-Pro cash, you've got get Go-Pro lucky. You've got to go through a ton of risk, rejection, years of trial and hustle error, all without a guarantee success. So being very good in sales is really just an entry ticket. W

  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July29Post.mp4 Understanding Modern Frustrations Once I was in elementary school. And I had a crush on my second grade teacher. She gave us this math "test." More like a puzzle. She said we had to race to see who could finish first. I'm pretty sure I finished before everybody else. I thought it was easy. When I was done, I looked around, everybody else was still struggling. But I was too terrified to say anything. I was a shy kid. Then some OTHER kid stood up. The teacher gave HIM a whole bunch o
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun28Post.mp4 A very common movie scene is the halftime locker room speech. Where the hero's team is behind at halftime. The coach gives them a rousing speech that fires them up. They come out, destroy the other team, and everybody lives happily ever after. It's also common for guys who are going out to pick up girls to a have some kind of "pre-game" warm up. Some times this involves hitting a bar before to knock back a few and practice some conversations. So when they get to the place where the girls are, they built up their
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun27Post.mp4 There's a pretty common scene in movies. One guy has got to do something painful to another guy. Like set a broken arm, or put a dislocated shoulder back. The common way is for the guy or gal doing the painful thing to count. "OK, on three..." And then they invariably do the thing halfway between 2 and 3. The idea being to get the guy off guard, so it happens more quickly and less painfully. But this is so common in the movies, the some shows are starting to have the guy getting the bone fixed to KNOW that
  8. http://mindpersuasion.com/instinct-persuasion/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun26Post.mp4 Human instincts are extremely powerful for a reason. So powerful that they are impossible to ignore. This was so we didn't have to "think" about what to do every day. The trouble is this is hard to "see" in a real way today. Most people will never have a situation where they are hungry for more than a day, and NOT know where they are going to find food. This is why they say that EVERY SOCIETY is always three meals away from a revolution. If EVERYBODY realizes t
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun25Post.mp4 Our instincts are like the Borg from Star Trek. Resistance is futile. This is why the willpower diet ALWAYS fails. The only way to lose weight, and keep it off (which, according to studies is INSANELY difficult) is to MANAGE your hunger. To plan your meals carefully. To not eat fast food more than a couple times a week. It's common to fall for the "Hollywood diet" trap. The idea it that movie stars, since they are always ultra ripped, have discovered some secret diet plan. And they sort of HAVE discove
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun24Post.mp4 Human hierarchies are everywhere. But they are mostly subconscious. The thing about humans is that we are driven by deep instincts. But we are capable of being driven by external triggers that indicate those deeper instincts. For example, by sheer mathematics, men have evolved a natural attraction to women who are, all else equal, younger rather than older. This is simply because the guys of the past who were RANDOMLY programmed to be attracted to younger women had MORE babies. Because a women who starts having
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun23Post.mp4 If you were an athlete, you would need to practice two things. Three, if we get technical. The first would be the skills of the particular sport. The second would be strength and flexibility The third would be endurance. We can put these into two basic categories. The direct skills needed, and the supporting skills. Of course, strength, endurance and flexibility aren't really skills. Their more considered part of general health. Even if you aren't an athlete, it would be beneficial to be stronger,
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun21Post.mp4 Most people are familiar with the hero's journey idea. The mythological structure of many movies. We tend to see this in blatant hero type movies. Especially all the recent super hero movies that have been made. But the same structure is in most movies. And books and most works of fiction. It's one of those things that you don't really notice. But when you look for it, you see it everywhere. Not only in movies, but in life. The basic hero's journey structure is in three basic parts. The orpha
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun19Post.mp4 In one of the Rocky movies, they had him chasing a chicken. Rocky thought it was stupid. His trainer knew better. Turned out to be a pretty good training technique. Chickens are pretty quick, and are hard to catch. The longer you chase them, the more flexibility and endurance you'll develop. Of course, this was another of the "strange training" themes in plenty of the Rocky movies. Hitting sides of beef, running up sides of mountains, etc. These all play along with the "poor athlete who can't afford ex
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun18Post.mp4 Status is important. At the same time, we like to pretend it's not. It's a happy idea that people will see us for who we REALLY are beyond things like money and status, etc. We all have this deep belief that if people take the time to "get to know us," then they will TRULY appreciate and LIKE who we really are. But in a way, that's kind of selfish. Because every single human out there has a limited amount of time and attention. And they have to decide exactly HOW to use that limited time and attention. Supp
  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun17Post.mp4 Once I was at this local bar. And they had this blues band playing. A local band. Their guitarist was much better than you'd imagine to see in a small local bar playing up on stage. The bar could hold maybe 50 people, if it were packed. But this guy was up there just absolutely shredding. But he was doing it in a way that indicated he didn't need much of his conscious brain. Of course, nobody thinks like this. "Wow, that guy seems to well into the range of unconscious competence!" But when somebod
  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun16Post.mp4 If you ever find yourself up against a gang of bad guys, that strategy is pretty straightforward. At least from movie fighting strategy. Figure out which guy is the leader, and punch that guy first. Then the rest of the bad guys will flee. There was a movie a few years ago with Tom Cruise where he had to play this soldier fighting against aliens. He got some "super special" alien blood on him, so he could relive the same day over and over. Eventually, like most complex alien movies, in order to kill ALL the alie

  19. Linguistic reframes are a powerful tool. These are when you take a meaning assumed by somebody, and flip it around until it means something else. Whenever two people are having a conversation, one person will set the frame. The other person will accept the frame. Consider the idea that even among old friends, there is always a very subtle frame contest going on. The word "contest" is too strong. It implies some kind of overt competition. But this is rarely the case. Imagine an old couple. Who has been married for decades. They've evolved a kind
  20. Our language is absolutely filled with metaphors. When people think of metaphors, we usually think of poetry, or literature, or fairy tale type storytelling. But it's hard to speak more than a few words before tossing out a few metaphors. Just take a look that last sentence. "Words" is a metaphor. It is a collection of sounds or squiggly lines that mean absolutely NOTHING to the untrained eye. And they represent and "idea" in mind, another metaphor. If we wanted to be super specific, each "idea" would have to be described according to the EXACT neural configu

  22. One of Dale Carnegie's most useful pieces of advice is how to best persuade people. That you can get anybody to do anything so long as they think it was their idea. This is the fundamental idea behind covert hypnosis. The type of conversational hypnosis invented by Dr. Milton Erickson. He would tell a bunch of stories with specifically vague parts. His patients would follow along, and they would have to fill in the vague parts with their own experience. So at the end of a few confusing stories, even though Erickson would be the guy talking, it would FEEL like the
  23. Watching actors give speeches is interesting. Especially when they are nervous. For example, if they give a thank-you speech after getting an award, they frequently rely on notes. (Assuming they don’t go off on a political tangent...) These are people that are the absolute best in the world at communicating carefully crafted words. Normally, the words are written by experts. The actors practice them over and over. When they make movies, they take plenty of takes. They record them from plenty of angles. Even the crappiest movies on Netflix are practi
  24. No matter what you do, you've got to stand out. That is, if you want to be better than average. Every single one of us has to differentiate ourselves somehow. Like it or not, everybody discriminates. If you are standing there on one side of the bar checking out a pretty lady, chances are she's got plenty of dudes to pick from. As much as the goofball politicians try and promise us they make everything fair, when the rubber meets the road, it's anything but. Since that pretty lady has plenty of guys to choose from, she's going to choose the BEST based on HER own su
