My Mouth Hurts
I had a friend who had a pain in his mouth so he went to see a dentist.
The dentist looked around and took an x-ray.
He told him he had four wisdom teeth, all impacted.
That the longer he waited to have them taken out, the more the pain would grow.
So he scheduled the earliest possible appointment to have all four of his wisdom teeth taken out.
Slippery Slope Cons
There are plenty of sketchy manipulation tactics that involve a combination of basic Cialdini persuasion tactics with some cold reading tactics.
The main Cialdini component is commitment and consistency.
That we tend to more of what we have done before.
That the more you publicly admit to any belief or idea, the more strongly you’ll maintain and defend that belief or idea.
This is how sales funnels and slippery slope sales pages are made.
But when you combine these with cold reading techniques they can be particularly insidious, and are used by both politicians and expert con artists.
I have a friend who spent a lot of time studying and mastering the art of covert hypnosis.
He didn’t know how he was going to monetize it, he just thought it was cool.
But when we tried to make money from this, it didn’t seem to pan out like he’d hoped.
First, he tried sales.
It was very, very easy to use covert hypnosis to make money in sales, but pretty soon it got pretty boring.
Since all the customers had more or less the same collection of desires and obstacles, related to the product, he ended up repeating the same stories over and over.
And even though he was easily making five figures a month, it was pretty boring.
So he tried to use covert hypnosis to make girls desperate to have sex with him.
He tried it on strippers, and it worked fantastically.
A stripper would come sit next to him in the strip club, he’d rattle of a few patterns, she’d fall in love with him and beg for sex.
The problem was that after they had sex a few times, she was way more in love with her, but he wanted nothing to do with her.
I guess he found that once you get past their gorgeous bodies and big boobs, strippers aren’t the most interesting conversationalist.
So not only did he have leave town, to avoid the steady stream of strippers coming to his place unexpectedly to beg to see him, but he needed to find a new way to monetize his hypnotic skills.
There’s a shocking new theory by a renegade astronomer.
That our current iteration of human civilization, starting way back in Sumer and continuing up to the present day, is not the first time.
It turns out there is another, identical Earth on the direct opposite side of the sun.
This dual Earth has an orbit carefully calibrated so we can’t see it.
And we’ve been having civilizations grown and led to extinction on either planet for a long, long time.
This being controlled by extra terrestrials much, much more intelligent than we can even comprehend.
But the overall process is pretty simple.
One of the dual earths, they start the agricultural discovery process and eventually the civilization process.
Guided By Gods
They present themselves to us as gods.
They help us build the first few civilizations, let us run, and then wait patiently for us to become extinct.
Once we become extinct, they restart the process on the other Earth.
And then while they are repeating this process on the other Earth, they use this time period, about 10 to 15 thousand years, to clear the previous Earth and return it to it’s pre-agricultural state.
This includes genetically engineering and creating the right blend of plant and animal life, including home sapiens.
They only need to keep homo sapiens from writing until the god-led civilization process is underway.
This dual planet, oscillation civilization creation and destruction process has been going on for millions of years.
Eventually he uses his skills to get free stuff.
It’s much more of a challenge, as ever conversation is different.
He’ll go into a restaurant, hypnotize the waitress and get free meals.
He’ll go to a hotel, and get a free room.
He’s even got a couple apartments that he rents for free since he’s hypnotized the property manager.
Sometimes he’ll even go to a car dealership and walk out with a free car.
Hypnosis Sex Party
And when he feels like having a sex party, he’ll go out of town, and find a busy strip club.
Then he’ll hypnotize six or seven strippers, make them all fall in love with him, and have a week long sex party.
When you get the target or market to take several steps that validate and amplify not only their sense of intelligence, but a sense of superiority, they’ll be much less likely to spot the con.
I’m Better Than Everybody Else
The more they go down this cold reading slippery slope, the more they’ll fall in love with how smart they think they are, compared to everybody else.
Then when the con hits, they’ll feel so horrible they never, ever got to the cops.
When he woke up, the dentist seemed pretty excited.
And it the removal of his wisdom teeth had taken twice as long.
The dentist proudly explained that he’d had eight wisdom teeth, not four.
Twice The Pain
And it took twice as long to remove them.
He even showed him his eight wisdom teeth.
He said he wasn’t going to charge him any extra, but he might become famous.
Having eight wisdom teeth is very rare, and many dentists might want to look inside his mouth to see what other oddities they might find.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
