  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July27Post.mp4 We like people with strong frames. This is as instinctive as liking food that tastes good. We like people who are confident that they can handle things that come up. But unfortunately, there are very few people like this in real life. And the "alpha types" in the movies are almost always incorrectly written. Very serious, never smiling, always scowling, kind of a brooding, loner type. What would a REAL alpha be like? Let's imagine this from an ancient, instinctive perspective. Alpha, of course, is a l

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar16Post.mp4 Holding a strong frame is a very necessary skill. One might say it's THE most important skill. Socrates was murdered for proving that all the goofs in charge couldn't "prove" anything they thought was a logical reason for being in power. Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius noted that EVERYTHING is opinion. One dude famously came up with the basic idea that EVERYBODY is governed by the ancient law, "might makes right." This might not seem to be true, especially in a polite society. But if you tune your brain to see thi
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar14Post.mp4 Getting free stuff is easy. Expecting free stuff is even easier. This is a very dangerous trap. Even for pure economic reasons, it's very dangerous. It doesn't take a lot of skill to receive free stuff. It doesn't take a lot of skill to expect free stuff. On the other hand, it's pretty easy to convince people that they "deserve" or they "should" get free stuff. Sure, if you are perfectly happy to stay safely in the middle, never be more than average, this is a decent strategy. On the other hand, if you
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar09Post.mp4 When I was in high school, I had a lot of friends who liked to work on cars. They LOVED the movie, "Mad Max." The guy had a cool car with a cool engine. Not only did he have a huge "blower" but a nitrous oxide injections system. Whenever he was chasing the bad guys, he'd casually flip the nitrous switch and his car would faster than everybody else's. This is a very common theme with good guys vs. bad guys. The good guys ALWAYS have a secret stash of power somewhere. Even on one of the Star Trek crossover mo
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar08Post.mp4 The discovery of electricity was a pretty pivotal thing. It led to a lot more stuff to be invented. Electricity, at it's core, is energy. The story of human history is closely related to the story of energy. How, specifically, is electricity made? You spin some magnets around some copper wires and it creates an electrical current. But this was ONLY possible once they discovered fossil fuels. You could, theoretically, create electricity by burning wood. But since wood doesn't burn very hot, AND it bu
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar07Post.mp4 A common prank to play on friends is to put a sign on somebody's back. This is also a common tactic of school yard bullies. Everybody sees the sign, and laughs. But the guy with the sign can't see it, so he doesn't know why people are laughing at him. With friends, this can be pretty funny. But in a bullying situation, it can be vicious and mean. One way to think of teasing among friends is a "toughening up" to protect against the bullies. Like play fighting between lion cubs. Another way to look at
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct23Post.mp4 I've always been a huge science geek. Way back in Junior High school, I was actually a member of a science book of the month club. I'd read all kinds of books on quantum physics, relativity, etc. Of course, all the math had been stripped out and they were more like philosophy-science than anything difficult. Ever since the dawn of time, humans have been trying to figure out why and how stuff works. The more stuff you understand, the more stuff you can do. Nobody could go to the moon until they understood enough
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct05Post.mp4 If you were walking down the street, and somebody punched you in the face, that would suck. But you would also plenty of ways to get back. Most people who saw it would agree that it sucks. And plenty of times when this happens, people step in. This is the kind of unwritten rules of a civil society. You can't walk around punching people. So when most people see somebody do this, they don't like it. Even if they didn't step in, if you called the cops, plenty of people would be more than willing to help out.
  10. Why Being Yourself Is Excellent Advice: https://mindpersuasion.com/be-yourself-is-excellent-advice/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July23Loop.mp4
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July2Post.mp4 A lot of things exists on continuums. One side is one extreme, another side is another extreme. For example, a very common idea is to be motivated by pain or pleasure. Either being motivated by moving away from pain. Or being motivated toward pleasure. Most are a mix of the two. Too far on either side can cause problems. If you are ONLY motivated away from pain, once you get far enough away so the pain diminishes, you'll lose your motivation. You'll always start things, but never finish. On the ot
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July1Post.mp4 It's a very common idea in pop psychology that communication is mostly non-verbal. This is mostly evident in situations where people are kind of "feeling each other out." If you were writing a technical report, short story or script, then the words are obviously WAY more important. But in any one-on-one communication, when you don't know each other well, the words aren't really that important. In job interviews, for example, plenty of companies toss out really off the wall questions NOT because they are interested in the
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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

  18. If you're going to sell something to somebody, there are basically two ways. The thing about sales is it's all about numbers. No matter what kind of technique you're using, you'll never sell all people. You won't even sell most people. The name of the game is to always IMPROVE your percentages. You can improve how well you qualify. So you don't even start your "pitch" until you KNOW you have a high probability candidate. Somebody who WANTS the kind of thing you are selling. And who wants it NOW. These types of sales jobs are hard to find. Why?
  19. A lot of the way reality works is really backwards. One reason is we humans have a tough time with any "cause-effect" ideas. We tend to assume connections where none exist. This has been demonstrated in children as young as six months. They believe it allowed for quick thinking back in the days of hunters and gathers. Many of our problems today stem from having hunter-gatherer instincts in a modern world. Another problem arises when we understand the relationships between our beliefs and the things we see. Most people believe they more or less see the world t
  20. There's a lot of cool exercises you do in NLP seminars. One is a lie detector test. First you get a partner, then you calibrate each other. Each person tells three truths, and three lies. Everybody has a collection of "tells" that they give off when they are lying. Telling the truth is easy. So when people tell the truth, we are very congruent. When we tell a lie, we are incongruent. Conflicted. We all have a collection of instincts that allow us to sniff out social cheaters. So when we are purposely lying, we are aware that the person we are l
  21. Voltaire is famous for saying, "Give me ten minutes to talk away my ugly face and I'll bed the queen of France." Humans have been around for a long, long time. But spoken language for only a little bit. Written language even less. But communication is as ancient as the hills. Crows caw at each other, and the frequency of the caws are important. Slow, drawn out caws mean one thing. Quick caws in succession mean something else entirely. If you were hiking through the jungle, and you happened across a silverback gorilla, you'd know what to do. You woul
  22. Hi! I'm winging it here. I'm pretty sure someone with George's expertise can put it together properly, but I came up with some ideas and know the wordings need to be changed etc .... I just want something to emphasize always looking ones best (hair, makeup, nails, well groomed, and presentable always) because first impressions matter and self love is the key. That can be another one . "I love myself so much. I am always well groomed and looking neat". Well something like that. I'm just brainstorming here to help with some new ideas. LOL. Also it doesn't have to be called D
  23. What's the easiest way to get a girl to like you? This technique will work every time. But it only works if it's the FIRST thing she sees you do. The reason it works so well is few guys can pull it off. It's not complicated, but for many guys it is nearly impossible. Most guys are too busy coming up with clever lines and techniques. Or spending hours a day online trying to interpret and decipher her signals. Or maybe hours a day in the gym hoping a chiseled body will get them "noticed." So, what's the "trick?" The method that will virtually GURANTEE
