  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun09Post.mp4 The metaphors we come up with, or use regularly are often very well calibrated. For example, when Bill Clinton was running for president, he seemed to use a lot of anchors, self points and covert gestures during his debates. And aptly enough, he was called "Slick Willie" by his opponents. Slick is a word that doesn't reference the words somebody uses, rather than how they act. Ronald Reagan, on the other hand, was called the "Great Communicator." Which indicates more of a direct, word based system. Which is exactly what he used to utterly smash Mondale in one of the debates. At the time Reagan was pretty old. So the question on everybody's mind, but not quite put directly to him, was whether he was too old to be president. So the "Great Communicator" used that to his advantage, using a reframe. "I don't want to make this debate about age," he began, before the debate even started. "I will not hold my opponent's youth and inexperience against him." Boom. Game over. Another interesting metaphor is how we describe what's really being said, beyond the words. English has a TON of words. The English language has gone through a ton of changes in the past few hundred years. French, Latin, Greek, even Norse have made their way into the English language. Japanese is another story. Many, many fewer vocabulary words. But when they speak, their emotions are just as complex as anybody else's. So in Japanese, you have to really pay attention to the energy. When this idea is expressed in English, we say "read between the lines." Meaning even the stuff that is unsaid is dependent on the words that ARE being said. But in Japanese they say, "read the air." Which means you have to completely ignore the words and pay close attention to the context, the relationships between the various speakers, etc. The idea that words are only a small part of communication is pretty ubiquitous. Even when we DO use words, somebody like Reagan can flip them around anyhow. To mean whatever they want. So long as you've got a strong enough frame, words are really kind of like stop lights in the middle of nowhere. Only a suggestion. But if you ONLY pay attention to words, or if you believe that the words are the MAIN part of the communication, you'll get smoked. By smooth operators like Slick Willie or word wizards like the Great Communicator. But if you learn to "read the air," you'll have a huge advantage. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/intuition/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr16Post.mp4 Metaphors are everywhere. Way more than people realize. Some people think of metaphors as mini-stories. Or like "this is like that" kind of thing. Like dancing can be a metaphor for relationships. Men lead, women follow, etc. The switch roles and things get messed up. Or the famous Forest Gump one. Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get. If you remember your English, you know the difference between a metaphor and a simile. Similes use "like." Your eyes are like diamonds. Metaphors, on the other hand, use direct replacements. Her eyes are diamonds. This IS that. Led Zeppelin's "Fool In The Rain" uses one right after the other. "Well there's a light in your eyes that keeps shining... Like a star that can't wait for the night..." But on a much broader scale, metaphors are EVERYWHERE. Words themselves are metaphors. They are representations of the thing they describe. They are weird sounds that call to mind the thing they describe. A very, very common mistake that you can find EVERYWHERE if you look for it is a violation of the dictum, "The Map is Not The Territory." Words are NOT the things they describe. You can say "hot dog" until your blue in the face. But if you don't eat SOMETHING you're going to stay hungry. But if you say, "hot dog" to the guy at the hot dog stand, it's like a magic process. Not obviously magic, since it is common, ordinary and expected. But step back a bit and see. You have a thought. You turn that thought into a sound. That sound goes into hot-dog-guy's brain and he nods. Hot-dog-guy brings you a hot dog, and you swipe your card, and like magic, you now have a hot dog. Most people NEVER think about this kind of stuff. Which means most people NEVER realize the true potential of words. The right words in the right order can make others feel utterly magnificent. The wrong words can make people feel HORRIBLE. Never to recover. Why is this? Imagine two physical connections between two people. One, a nice massage. The other, a punch in the face. The right words in the right order are like an emotional massage. You take the time to learn the skills. You can "touch" people in a way that can make them feel much better than they have in ages. Or, you can spit out hurtful words. Punching somebody in the face, especially if it's a sucker punch, is EASY. Zero training required. But knowing HOW to get rid of kinks and knots and make people feel like a million bucks? That takes some time. That takes practice. That takes practice with a LONG GAME intention of making people feel good. When you do this with your words, it will have the same impact. Emotionally positive and long lasting. Which means their memory of YOU will be emotionally positive and long lasting. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/storytelling-magic/
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan18Post.mp4 Language is both extremely powerful yet something we humans rarely think about. It's one component of our powerfully imaginative brains. It can be thought of as a hallucination transmission device. You have an idea, you put words to that idea, and that same idea is now in somebody else's brain. That simple concept, of thinking of an idea, and transmitting that idea to another human may well be the driving force that grew our brains. Between two million years ago and now, our brains tripled in size. Thought and language may have been the driving force. How so? Humans are hierarchical. The higher you are up the ladder, the more sex you get. The more sex you get, the more babies you make. Those babies will have the very same traits that got YOU up that hierarchy ladder. This makes perfect sense if we imagine that having the best ideas, and describing those ideas was a key component of social hierarchy for the past couple million years. Even way BEFORE we invented language. Even chimps, whom we split with six or eight million years ago live in a tight hierarchy. And just like us, the higher a chimp is up the ladder, the more sex he gets, and the more babies he makes. And unlike gorillas, whose sheer size determines status, chimps rely more on their wits. They behave in very clever, and very long game strategizing ways. So it's easy to imagine how proto humans a couple million years ago (four million years AFTER we split from chimps) would win the hierarchy contests by having the BEST ideas. Today, those ideas are expressed with words. Words and thoughts are not generally thought to be related. The "art" of expressing your thoughts with well chosen words is NOT something most people are skilled in. Everybody has plenty experiences poorly expressing fantastic ideas. But it is something you can practice. And like anything else, the more you practice, the better you get. This is what Voltaire meant when he said one of his most famous quotes: "Give me ten minutes to talk away my ugly face, and I'll bed the queen of France." This is TRUE confidence. One that does not care about looks. One that says let me talk, and I can talk my way into ANYTHING. This can be applied to conversations to make sales or to make anybody dream about you. But this can also be applied to the written word. To get people salivating over WHATEVER you are writing about. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/hypnotic-copywriting/
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov24Post.mp4 One major paradox of human thinking is the difference between cause and effect. Everybody and their sister has heard or said the phrase, "correlation doesn't mean causation." This means we all are both fooled by this and skeptical of this. Evolutionary psychologists believe this is a function of survival. Our brains evolved to be quick, but not accurate. Everything cost something, and our brains aren't any different. The cost of having a very fast brain is that many of our assumptions are incorrect. Turns out that thinking quickly is much more important than thinking accurately. So even today, this cause-effect mystery messes us up. For example, you see a guy talking to a girl. The girl is attracted to the guy. The guy is attracted to the girl. Attraction happens subconsciously, automatically. But we don't like that idea. We like the idea of being able to CONSCIOUSLY create attraction. Of saying the right things in the right order. Kind of like we practice for job interviews. It feels they same. They have something we want. And in order to get it (a number, some affection, a job) we've got to say the right things. Only in a job interview, the words we say go through a much more objective filter in the other guy's brain. Since they are hiring for very objective reasons. Some people hire for emotional reasons, and this rarely works out. Nepotism, because the candidate is hot, etc. Objectively hiring people tends to work much better. But what about in social situations? A common mistake in any kind of consciously learned "game" is by reversing cause and effect. A guy is confident, and he's talking to a girl. His subconscious perceives that she's attracted him. Her subconscious perceives he's attracted to her. This fantastic and unconscious feedback loop creates a good feeling in both. They both sort of know the other person likes them. And they both sort of know they like the other person. This attraction feedback loop is the CAUSE. The EFFECT is the words they are using. The mistake comes when we think the WORDS are the cause, and the attraction is the effect. This is a very natural and common mistake to make. Most people ONLY think about the surface level language. Most people are unaware of the emotions and subconscious communication going on beneath the surface. If you only focus on the top, you'll HAVE to play the numbers game. Keep talking to people and HOPE you get lucky. Or, you can learn to speak subconsciously. Covertly. Hypnotically. And CREATE attraction at will.
