James Bond is famous for having a lot of gadgets.
So is Batman.
All kinds of cool equipment that gives them an advantage.
This kind of thing is cool because we like tools.
One way to look at human history is all the different tools and gadgets we’ve been inventing.
According to linguists, we refer to tools as if they are “friends.”
They can tell this by the words we use around the words.
I cut the bread WITH a knife.
I killed the wooly mammoth WITH my spear.
I killed the wooly mammoth WITH my friends.
This is why we talk to our cards and other tools.
The things we want are pretty basic.
Food, sex, a safe and warm house, decent relationships, etc.
But human history has been a story of getting those things easier and safer.
By creating more tools.
Not quite like James Bond or Batman tools, but we keep getting closer and closer.
Some tools are pretty versatile.
The original versatile tool is the Swiss Army Knife.
A metaphor for other tools that are very flexible and useful.
The Swiss Army knife of kitchen appliances.
The Swiss Army knife of SEO tools.
The Swiss Army knife of zombie defense systems.
There is one linguistic tool that is VERY useful.
Very applicable in very many different situations.
Easy And Flexible
And very, very easy to learn.
One you’ve likely heard about several times.
The tools is the Meta Model.
The one tool that nearly everybody knows about, but very few people know how to use effectively.
The most common way to use this tool is in asking people to get more specific with their answers.
This is usually very annoying.
You ask somebody a question, they give you an answer.
So when you start asking for more information, it can get very annoying.
One way to use this tool is in destroying insults.
To ask them for more specific information about why they think the insult is an insult.
This is pretty fun.
Kind of like in Aikido when you flip the energy back on your attacker.
And watch them flail around.
But a much, much better use of the meta model is to build up huge desires in their brain.
Things they ENJOY talking about.
Things that get them really good feelings.
When you can learn to apply the meta model in different areas, your frame and social credibility will go through the roof.
The confidence with which you can use your language will go through the roof.
The enjoyment and fun you’ll feel in social situations will go through the roof.
And the social rewards you’ll get will also go through the roof.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
