Who Are You?
There have been a few social experiments regarding perception.
Like the famous one where a world class violinist played in the subway all day.
Nobody recognized him.
He only got a few dollars in his tip hat.
On the other hand, a college student and his buddies did a similar experiment.
They went to a local mall, but pretended the guy was famous.
He had a couple of cameras following him.
He had somebody posing as a press agent, and somebody posing as a manager.
All to promote an idea about this guy.
That he was really famous.
And guess what?
After an hour or so, he had a huge crowd of people following him.
Acting like he really was famous.
Two different extremes.
One a truly gifted and famous person that nobody noticed.
Because he was way out of character.
Another guy that really was a regular guy.
But pretending to be famous.
What’s the moral of the story?
When people see you, particularly for the first time, they don’t spend much brain power trying to figure you out.
We humans don’t spend ANY brainpower unless we absolutely have to.
There’s a famous video of a bunch of dudes playing basketball when a gorilla walks by.
The video starts off by asking the viewer to count how many times somebody dribbled or something.
At the end, they ask, how many times did he dribble?
And they ask, “did you see the gorilla?”
The common response is:
But they rewatch it and sure enough, there’s a gorilla in the back ground.
We humans are really, really lazy in our thinking.
So unless you are outstandingly gorgeous, or a world famous A-list actor, NOBODY Is going to notice you.
We all love to believe we are so “special” inside that our specialness will radiate a kind of irresistible attraction.
But it won’t.
Put Yourself Out There
Unless you do the work of getting noticed, nobody will notice you.
But as these experiments show, that’s pretty easy.
If you deliberately want to project charisma, fame and magnetism, you can.
You want to hide on the wall hoping nobody notices you, you can.
And you can do this in very deliberate ways.
Particularly how you communicate.
You can practice very specific techniques, all in the privacy of your home, or car.
Until they feel normal.
Then you can unleash them on the world, and be perceived as a party hero.
And once social proof takes over (like the dude at the mall) you’re essentially on auto pilot.
