One idea that has been around for a long time is the “Great American Novel.”
What is this idea?
A story about people doing things, overcoming obstacles, going through their own individual character arcs.
But in a way that is uniquely American.
So far, there hasn’t been ONE novel that has been overwhelmingly chosen.
One contender, among others, is Moby Dick.
The theme of letting one’s ambition ruin you.
Many people have their own version of a “white whale.”
Something that you simply cannot let go.
The one person who wronged you and you MUST get revenge.
That one lady or guy who got away and you MUST get them back.
Humans are the only animals that will seek revenge.
A lion sneaks into a human camp and eats somebody.
The humans will hunt that lion until they find it and kill it.
To punish it.
This is one aspect of human nature.
Another is our fascination with crime.
Truman Capote became famous for his book about a horrific crime.
Interviewing the criminals in prison, finding out why they did what they did.
And writing in “rich” detail about what they did.
People ate that up like crazy.
We love crime movies.
Cops and robbers.
Movies about advanced profilers who get into the heads of criminals.
Complex genius super villains like Hannibal Lecter.
We love movies about cat and mouse chess matches between super heroes and super villains.
The game of chess is based upon ancient battles between kings.
Faking each other out, out gaming your opponent.
The work of Sun Tzu is all about how to win battles, ideally without ever firing a shot.
By psychologically destroying your enemies.
Human nature is both maddeningly complex and irresistibly interesting.
Or is it?
It can be both.
From inside our heads, we rarely know WHY we do what we do.
But from a basic level, human nature is pretty simple.
We all want better stuff.
We all want to get better stuff easier.
We all want the SAME better stuff.
Sex, money, relationships, houses, jobs, incomes, etc.
But how we think about this stuff is complex, right?
There are certain psychological “structures” we use to think about this kind of stuff.
But unless you understand these various thinking structures, it WILL seem super confusing.
Think of this like a weather system.
There’s only a handful of variables.
But these variables interact to create chaotic, unpredictable systems.
Human nature is the same.
These filters interact with each other to create chaotic, unpredictable behaviors.
However, there IS a way to isolate each of these psychological structures.
Through simple conversations.
Which will come across to them as deep and wonderfully insightful.
Which will make YOU come across as deep and wonderfully insightful.
Somebody THEY will like to keep.
Whoever THEY are.
How do you do this?
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
