A long time ago, I saw an interesting episode of Smallville.
The TV show about Clark Kent as a high school kid.
This weird meteor landed, and had some strange properties.
Whoever got some of the “meteor juice” on them could essentially mind control people.
As luck would have it, the two guys who got the meteor juice on them were car salesman.
Naturally, they sold a whole bunch of cars.
This is generally the go to understanding of hypnosis.
At least when it’s used non-therapeutically.
You swing a watch, and tell them they are getting sleepy.
Then you tell them, in kind of a different voice, that they “want” to do something.
“You want to buy this car…”
“You’d love to have this car…”
“You really, really need this car…”
And they respond essentially by repeating your words.
Just like a Jedi mind trick.
Ideal Fantasy Skill
People LOVE to imagine this kind of thing.
People we all know that otherwise convincing people to do things is difficult.
The simple antidote to any attempts a persuasion is simple.
The salesperson says, “Hey, I think you should by this car!”
The reluctant customer says, “Yeah, why do you think that, specifically?”
The kind of question all persuaders, salespeople and seducers dread.
The most feared “objection” from a woman, after saying:
“Hey, why don’t we exchange numbers?”
Would be the stone cold response:
Or if we say:
“Hey, can I get your number?”
And she says:
“Maybe. Why should I give it to you?”
Side Step Resistance
Ideas and fears like this are why we LOVE the idea of mind control.
To just tell them what we want and they eagerly do this.
Luckily, this kind of stuff only happens in the movies.
But it’s possible in real life.
Only it takes a little bit more work.
Literally, only a little.
Think of our brains as having a kind of “mind control potential.”
The higher anybody’s mind control potential, the more we’ll naturally agree to whatever is being offered.
And increasing other people’s mind control potential is very, very easy.
Even with strangers.
First you’ll need a little rapport.
Which itself is pretty much automatic.
Unless, of course, you approach them with both an evil grin and a hatchet.
But if you are normal, and they are normal, you’ll have automatic rapport.
Then you start to ask very simple questions.
Questions they’ll enjoy answering.
Questions they’ll enjoy thinking about.
These questions, and more specifically, their answers AND the positive feelings their answers will create, will increase their mind control potential.
Now, you can’t go crazy with your “suggestions.”
But you’d be surprised.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
