I used to know this guy that was a pure natural. Or at least I thought he was.
In actuality, he spent a lot of time practicing, and really honed his game.
It was a magnificent thing to watch. Just sitting in a restaurant, he would speak to the waitresses in such a way that they would literally swoon all over him, within minutes of meeting him.
Funny thing was, I never could tell what the heck he was doing.
What made it difficult, in part, was that this guy was a magician. Like the kind of guy who stands up on stage and does a bunch of sleight of hand tricks.
So when he would talk to these girls, and they would literally fall all over themselves just to be around him, I thought he was using some kind of secret “mind magic.”
Which, in a way, he was.
But not in the way I’d imagined.
Later on, he told me he was using a specific set of language patterns that had been the foundations of NLP. He explained that this guy had created a bunch of techniques that were later referred to as “covert hypnosis.”
They were originally used to help people. To cure people of life long phobias, fears and inhibitions, in an hour or so.
People that spent years going to traditional therapists would come see this guy, who spoke in these “funny” patterns, and their problems would vanish.
It didn’t take long for folks to apply these patterns to sales, seduction, and any other kind of persuasion you can think of.
They’re elegant, respectful, and they work so well in part because they are “artfully vague,” meaning that the listener will have to “fill in the blanks” with their own experience.
This means they’ll choose to do what you want, but it will be THEIR idea. Not yours.
After he explained it to me, I finally understood. Just speaking to these girls (waitresses, department store clerks, baristas, etc) he would seemingly speak in “regular” language.
But underneath the surface was incredibly seductive power.
The good news is that with just a little bit of practice, these language patterns are pretty easy to use.
