Look That Way
There is a shoplifting gang that relies mainly on misdirection.
They create a commotion over here, and then steal something over here.
They only steal things they can later sell, either online or in a garage sale somewhere nearby.
There’s this really rich guy who has an entirely fake company.
He’s the only one who knows it’s fake.
He does provide a few services for high end clients.
But the money he makes doesn’t even come close to paying for all the overhead.
Most of his employees are support staff, and he claims his accounting is done off site.
He’s not laundering money or anything, just a very expensive hobby.
This allows him to hire whoever he wants, without really needing them to have any qualifications.
But the real fun comes when he puts out ads for really high paying positions that require little to no skills.
This gives him a whole lot of applications that take him several weeks to sort through.
There is this one lady who suddenly became famous for her dessert recipe.
It was a simple recipe, one she learned from her grandmother.
And she was in the right place at the right time.
Right when the soviet union had collapses, and western businesses were looking at any opportunity to make money.
She had just turned 18, was very attractive and had these super delicious desert recipes, which she thought was very simple.
But she just did what they told her, and she became rich and famous far beyond what she ever thought was possible.
Now she’s still famous, but only for that one recipe.
And she really, really hates people.
They are treat her as if she is some kind of caricature.
Not a real person.
Hijacked By Capitalists
Right when her life was about to take off, she was shoe-horned into this pretend person to help market her family recipe.
So now she holds dinner parties as revenge.
But they didn’t work out quite like what she’d anticipated.
I have a friend who spent fifteen years with a very clear target of what he wanted for his life.
He wanted to become the best graphic designer in the world.
So he spent all his spare time, and all his spare money, in pursuit of that goal.
And he is absolutely capable, using only computer software to create any picture that is extremely lifelike.
Only that is no really in demand these days.
Most graphics used today are easily created by automated programs and are very simple.
So in order to not accept the idea that he’s wasted the last fifteen years of his life, he’s turned to counterfeiting.
The hard part was finding the type of paper to print the money on.
He can create any type of money you want, that would pass any kind modern test.
They Know Everything
The only thing he’s worried about are the serial numbers.
Theoretically, if they can track where all the serial numbers go, they would see his money as being an outlier, which they could easy trace back to him.
So, the only way he can spend his money is on the black market.
His main method is to use the money to buy drugs.
And then he sells the drugs, taking about a 30% loss.
So he uses drug dealers to clean his fake money.
He only gets about 3K a month, he’s not greedy.
Fake Money Into Hard Assets
But he saves all the money he gets.
He goes down to various pawn shops and buys collectives silver and gold coins.
He’s got a couple of jobs to pay the rent.
But every month he’s got an extra 3K of untraceable tangible goods stored in his basement.
So if there is an economic apocalypse, he’ll be in pretty good shape.
She came up with an idea of hosting these dinner parties, and inviting only special people, people who fancy themselves as being elites.
Then she would purposely cook something that tasted horrible, just to hopefully shake her image.
She’s already got a tons of money, and she’s not concerned with people’s opinion.
But a funny thing happened once she hosted this dinner party.
People had been looking forward to this so much, they essentially hypnotized themselves to eat whatever she made, and believe it was delicious.
Chocolate Cream Lemons
Very much like a stage hypnotist can get somebody to eat an entire lemon on stage, and believe it tastes like a chocolate filled donut.
So she has carried this idea to the extreme.
She only has one special dinner party per year and only invites people who see this as an opportunity of proof of their elite specialness.
Then she feeds them the most disgusting thing she can possibly make.
And they eat it up and tells the world how utterly delicious it is.
So, Tell Me About Yourself
When he interviews people, he hypnotizes them.
He makes them take off their clothes, and run around clucking like a chicken.
Since his staff is extremely high paid, and have fantastic working conditions and amazing benefits, all while doing simple paperwork tasks, they don’t mind.
They think he’s a kind of weird eccentric who has strange ways of finding unusual talent.
But he just like to hypnotize people.
When they are under a stage of hypnosis, he’ll put in some very strange post hypnotic suggestions.
May The Fourth Be With You
That I want to hire you, but I must be sure you are capable of maintaining a very strange frame.
I’ll send people to follow you.
And you must act and speak like Darth Vader everywhere you go.
And if you do this long enough, and believably enough, you’ll be hired.
Or sometimes he won’t tell them to do anything specifically.
He’ll tell them that agents will be following you.
That my agents will be following you, and watching your closely.
And if you behave correctly, you’ll get rewarded.
Pay Close Attention
Of course, I may test you by sending people to accidentally bump into you.
Within each of these encounters will be a hidden message.
If you interpret this hidden message correctly, you will be rewarded.
But if you misinterpret this hidden message, something else will happen.
Most of the time, this is just a hobby.
They actually enjoy building up the misdirection.
They don’t make a lot of money, only enough to cover the operational costs.
For them, it’s their version of skydiving or base jumping.
Doing something very dangerous, and trying to come out unscathed.
Which is much, much, easier than people might imagine.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
