There is plenty of evidence that most people are pretty brainless.
This, of course, is not a nice thing to say.
But studies verify this “sheeple” idea.
2/3’s of people, during the famous Milgram test, gave a guy what they thought were real shocks.
The dude is acting like they are very painful.
Begging the shock giver to stop.
But the shock giver checks with the authority figure, who says it’s OK, and keeps on shocking.
Which means that 2/3 of people will do whatever the guy in charge says, without question.
A similar study is the Asch conformity test.
A guy does a very simple test.
So easy a caveman could do it.
And easily gets 100%.
But then they put him in a room with other “test subjects.”
These test subjects choose the wrong answer on purpose.
Just to see how this will affect the REAL test subject.
And again, 2/3’s of people choose the WRONG answer.
Just because a bunch of strangers choose the wrong answer.
What happens when you combine BOTH authority AND social proof?
Mind Control Instincts
You get a bunch of people pretty much willing to do, or believe, anything that comes from the authority.
That comes from authority AND is verified by social proof.
This tends to make us think we humans are broken somehow.
That we are a bunch of clueless idea-copiers that cannot think for ourselves.
Here’s another interesting statistic.
About 2/3’s of people are overweight.
What does being overweight have to do with thinking?
Consider this idea.
Following authority is an INSTINCT.
Following social proof is an INSTINCT.
Eating is an INSTINCT.
Resistance Is Futile
And in each study, they find that 2/3’s of people can’t ignore their instincts.
These instincts were very, very HELPFUL in the past.
Imagine a simple split test.
One tribe, every time they had a decision, needed to have a long meeting where EVERYBODY had a chance to share their opinion.
The other tribe, had a few very capable person in charge.
When they said “let’s go,” everybody said “OK.”
The second tribe would be MUCH MORE EFFICIENT.
And like many of our instincts, like eating, what worked FANTASTICALLY in the past really can mess us up today.
Making things even worse is most the ideas people copy into their brains are TERRIBLE.
Not only are they terrible, but the idea CREATORS benefit.
But the idea COPIERS get screwed.
Win Win Mind Control
In our past, EVERYBODY benefited.
Both the idea creators and the idea copiers.
This opens a HUGE opportunity.
To come up with MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL ideas to create.
That they will eagerly copy.
So they, whoever they are, see YOU as the authority figure.
The author of the ideas in their mind.
Ideas they will be glad to accept, believe, and follow.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
