  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb04Post.mp4 In the preface of Cialdini's book, he talked about how persuasion is really a science. Most, including people who get paid tons of money to come up with effective advertising for huge products, disagree. Most believe that advertising is an art. If you've ever watched the TV show, "Mad Men," it certainly seems like an art. Those skirt chasing, hard drinking dudes led by Don Draper didn't seem like the scientist types. Cialdini's reasons were simple. The things that influence happen outside of our conscious awareness. And we always come up with a post event, rational sounding reason why we THINK we did what we did. Neurologists tell us one of the main functions of the brain is an "after the fact" storytelling device. This makes a lot of sense, from a big picture point of view. The line is extremely blurry between primitive primates and humans. Our self-awareness and language evolved ON TOP OF the previous existing chimp brain. Our ancient instincts are still very much in control. We don't like that idea. We like the idea that WE, the part of us that is watching and choosing is doing the thinking and the choosing. But according to those who study the brain, this isn't the way it is. Which makes perfect sense considering Cialdini's "persuasion is science." The way we "don't" persuade is as follows. Something influences us. Those things that influence us happen OUTSIDE of our conscious awareness. We then MAKE UP a logical sounding reason why we did what we just did. We BELIEVE that reason. So we USE that reason to try and get somebody else to do what we just did. But since that's NOT the real reason, it rarely works. Our ego doesn't like to believe that we suck at anything. So it makes up ANOTHER story. One that says persuasion is an art. A completely mysterious process that few understand. But Cialdini wasn't just some goof with a bunch of random ideas. He did some serious field testing. And again and again, he proved that persuasion IS a science. Understand the science, and you'll never wonder why people do things again. This is hard to do. You'll have to get rid of the idea that your ego is the center of everything. That's likely the hardest part. We WANT to take credit. Our ego is like a little kid who is ALWAYS screaming for attention. Hey! Everybody! Look at me! Look what I can do! But if you CAN manage to turn off your ego? And you take the time to learn the SCIENCE of persuasion? You'll easily turn into a mad scientist. And the entire world will become your laboratory.

  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan31Post.mp4 Many things are a mix between form and function. One leads the other, and vice versa. Sometimes it goes more in one way than the other. Smiling is a good example. If you're happy, you smile. But if you're in a bad mood, and you FORCE yourself to smile, you'll start to giggle. It's not like our brain is different from our body. Our lip and face muscles are attached to our brain. And these are two way electrical circuits. It's not like our brain is some metaphorical energy center that controls us from another dimension. However, most of us don't think of doing anything differently. Our mind body systems are delivered like most PC's these days. Open the box, plug it in and Bob's your Uncle. You might get a small "manual" that shows you where all the USB ports, etc. are. Beyond that, you're on your own. Our mind body systems are like that. For most of us, we show up, run on auto pilot and call it good. But there are plenty of ways to significantly hack your own operating system. Ways they'll never teach you in school. Not because of any conspiracy. But because teachers are pretty much like everybody else. Show up, do the bare minimum, and expect a paycheck. So, how do you hack your own operating system? By levering the form-function idea. Smiling and making yourself happy is pretty easy. It's more of an example rather than a useful skill. The best ways are by leveraging the form function relationship between your language and your thought. You increase the quality of your thought, you'll increase the quality of your language. But if you increase the quality of your language, you'll increase the quality of your thought. How, specifically, do you increase the quality of your language? By doing drills on language STRUCTURE. Most people don't even think about language or thought structure. They have half baked ideas (that they copied from others) and spit them out with garbled words. But you, on the other hand can develop real wizard language skills. Real wizard thought skills. And since most humans can't tell the difference between magic and complicated science, they'll believe you've got some magical powers. Sure, you'll know exactly what you are doing. You'll have developed the powerful skills of language structure to the point of unconscious competence. Which will allow you to not spit out poorly chosen and garbled words, but instead to use laser targeted words, phrases and structures. To seduce, to influence, to persuade, and to outframe any argument you hear. To most, they'll feel the effect, but not have any idea what, or how you just did that. Which is perfectly fine. Since hiding magic out in the open will only enhance your effect. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/hypnotic-copywriting/

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July16Post.mp4 A very common desire among would-be persuaders is a secret collection of magic words that would work on anybody. The idea is very compelling. It's as old as written language itself. Ever since the dawn of time, humans have struggled to survive. The idea of conjuring magic to shortcut the necessary work is therefore very compelling. For the longest time, people sought out alchemy. Isaac Newton, the guy who invented calculus and physics, was an alchemist. Not in the modern sense of the word. But back then, BEFORE they figured out chemistry and the structure of atoms and molecules, they really had no idea what the difference between dirt and gold was. So the idea was compelling. To figure out a way to turn dirt into gold. Of course, to the modern brain, this sounds silly. Like it should only happen in fantasy cartoons. But this idea is the source of ALL human invention. To always be dreaming of an EASIER way of doing something. When they discover it, it seems like magic. Then they figure it out, explain it, refine it, etc. And it's no longer magic. But you can't take something that SEEMS like magic, and then explain it scientifically, unless you BELIEVE in magic. At least some type of science that hasn't been discovered yet. Which is essentially what the famous quote is all about. Science, when it's far above our level of understanding, IS magic. Modern desires for conversational alchemy are similar. In the movies, it's pretty easy. If you remember McFly from back to the future, he had a memorize line that was SUPPOSED to make his future wife fall in love with him. But he mispronounced it. He MEANT to say, "You are my destiny." But instead, he said, "You are my density." But he recovered, said it correctly, and it worked. Like magic. This is the core idea of a magic spell. You say it correctly, and it works. You say it incorrectly, and it doesn't work. But is there modern magic? Linguistic alchemy? Yes, but not in the way most people are looking. People are looking for memorized statements. Phrases and patterns. Like in the movies. The trick is not in SAYING the right things, in the right order. But asking the right questions in the right order. This makes this type of magic much more flexible. Much more applicable. Friends, strangers, lovers and everybody in between.

  12. I watched a pretty cool movie about witches a few nights ago. It took place in the very early days of America. A family had been outcast, and one of the daughters was slowly seduced by the devil. And when it came time to convince her to sign her name in the book, (Whatever book the devil uses to collect souls) he had to make her a decent offer. That's the general structure of the "sell your soul to the devil" deal in the movies. The devil offers you something you can't otherwise get in return for your soul. In this particular movie, one of the devil's main selling points was the "taste of butter." To a poor family, struggling on it's own in the wilderness, the "taste of butter" would be pretty tempting. One of the main imports after Britain came up with the Industrial Revolution was spices. (Even now, British food isn't known for it's flavor, so I guess back in the day it was even blander.) The one thing that people couldn't get enough of was sugar. Nowadays, it's hard to imagine eating without tasting sugar. We are pretty spoiled when it comes to eating whatever we want, whenever we want. It wasn't too long ago that the ONLY thing you could eat was what you could produce locally. But today, with so much scientific advances, there is plenty of ways to fool our taste buds. Some aren't so healthy, but plenty are fine. Stevia, for example, is a completely natural sugar substitute. We humans are always looking for ways to scientifically enhance our subjective experience. If you take your time and do your research, you can come up with a pretty tasty meal that is both healthy and tasty. Something that would never exist in the "wild." All our emotions are like that. This is why we love movies and music so much. We CRAVE emotional experiences. And if we CAN put together something to give us an emotional experience, we will. It's kind of strange thinking about eating as an emotional experience, but think of how boring life would be otherwise. Imagine if all you ate was a tasteless protein shake that was perfectly balanced. That would be TOO scientific. On other hand, if you are TOO subjective, and didn't take the time to worry about nutrition, you wouldn't be very healthy. Luckily, with modern science, we can do both. Create experiences that are both "healthy" and subjectively pleasing. That's the whole point of "hero's journey" movies. The are subjectively pleasing, emotionally satisfying, and inspiring. You can do a lot when you can create subjectively pleasing and emotionally healthy feelings. In fact, if you can do this with the right person, it could be the foundation for a fantastic life.
