See And Eat
A long time ago I was in Japan.
And friends and I went to this really expensive teppanyaki place.
This is the style where they cook in front of you on a huge grill.
One of the things about Japanese food is they say it’s “enjoyed twice.”
Meaning you enjoy it when you see it, or see it being prepared in front of you.
And you enjoy it when you eat it.
And this particular evening was no exception.
The whole experience was EXTREMELY well calibrated.
Looks, smells, taste, and frequency.
We ended up eating maybe, 7-8 courses.
The whole process took about 2 hours.
The chef would spend plenty of time cooking each course.
It looked really good while he was creating it.
It smelled really good while he was creating it.
First Bite Over and Over
So each time he delivered the next course, it was a “first time” experience all over again.
Like when you’re really hungry, and you can’t wait to eat.
That “first bite” is the most delicious bite you’ve ever eaten.
But if you’re like me, that first bite is followed by a second bite, and next thing you know the food is gone.
You pat you belly and say, “Damn that was good!”
But in this particular Japanese dining experience, it was as if we had that “first bite” experience over and over and over.
I used to work in a lab.
We did a lot of testing.
A lot of experiments.
Some tests were simple.
They were to support manufacturing and were “pass-fail” kinds of tests.
Steady State Flow
According to various regulations, you test one product out of every thousand or so, just to make sure.
But some were more longer lasting experiments.
A lot of variables.
Which meant we had to do them a whole bunch of time.
All the different combinations of variables.
A lot of these were “steady state” kind of experiences.
You have this system that is in equilibrium, with a whole bunch of variables.
Then you alter one variable slightly, and see the system changes.
Human conversations are very much like this.
At least they can be.
Most of the time, they were like weather systems.
Kind of predictable, but not too far out into the future.
You can guess the weather tomorrow based on the weather today.
But the further out you get, the harder it is.
But with conversations, you can measure them, predict them, and actually calibrate them.
Good movies and books and speakers do this well.
Just like a master teppanyaki chef.
To slowly deliver fantastic morsels spaced out.
So by the time the next morsel is ready the brains ready.
Mouth wateringly ready for the next small “bite.”
Carefully calibrated, hypnotically delivered, 1-2 minute stories.
Within an otherwise normal conversation.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
