This video depicts the controversy behind subliminal and covert persuasion techniques. Jaw dropping examples of subliminal advertising will heighten your awareness. it has not been determined conclusively how effective this kind of work really is when it comes to selling a product or a message I maintain that there has to be some influence from the use of subliminal information. We know that the human brain is capable of picking up details that were not consciously given.
Mind control in advertising is widespread today. Your best defense against the onslought of media and mind control is to be aware of the techniques used in advertising and social media and to learn how to navigate around them. the invention of mobile devices has given advertisers a way to influence every moment of your life if you allow it. Here are few pointers for recognizing the covert mind control that goes on all around you.
Mind Control in Advertising is Widespread
Some of the biggest advertisers are taking their advertising away from full page ads and television spots and spending up on hidden persuasion. You won't find these secret messages in ice-cubes or flickering film footage like they were in the sixties. Subliminal advertising has gone mainstream - fake news, mind control scripts, propaganda and stealth voicemail are in wide use by corporations, government bodies, and industry groups. Have you spotted any of these?
1. Point of Sale Mind Control Scripts
Clothing store staff and car salesmen use them to close the deal - carefully planned questions and subverbal cues to get you to sign. If you’ve ever walked out of a store, after spending twice as much as you wanted to, chances are you’ve fallen victim to one of these scripts. The GAPACT is used by Gap staff to upsell you. Other salesmen use word techniques to make you buy, even when you don’t have the money - because they make more by selling you 'easy' finance. When a car salesmen takes you on a test drive and asks you “Is this the type of vehicle you would like to own?”, he is using a subtle mental framing trick - it can create an embarrassing distraction while you drive. The technique is called disassociation - which is the ideal state for mental manipulation.
If you haven't been aware of these maddening mind control techniques until today then I want to warn you that you may become hyper sensitive to persuasion techniques for a while. This is usually a good thing because you recognize the influential power these subliminal messages can have and you can avoid falling prey to them.
Guys always say they don't understand women, but often they are just using the wrong approach. When you want to get your girl to agree with you on an issue or decision what better way than to practice a few simple persuasion techniques? Today I came across these easy to use tips for upping your persuasiveness with your partner and I wanted to share them with you.
Get Her to Agree with Simple Persuasion Techniques
5pm: Swear by it
...Having successfully planted an idea and made it seem like a viable option – now is the time to capitalise, we swear. Or, rather, you do. Placing the word ‘damn’ into the opening or closing sentence of your
persuasive speech will make you appear more impassioned about the subject. Which is pretty damn obvious.
But a study at Northern Illinois University found this judicious use of swearing increases the positive psychological impact of your argument. It enhances your audience’s perception of your ‘emotional intensity’ – how much you believe in or want something – making her more receptive.
Just don’t ‘eff’ and ‘blind’. The study found ‘damn’ was the optimum expression of your ferocity, whether in person, by text or by email. Vulgarity and obscenity were judged to be counter-productive. So top and tail your ultimatum accordingly.
9pm: Question time
By the evening, there’s one last subliminal veil to brush aside. If her answer is still a ‘no’, just ask ‘why not?’ Prompting her to evaluate her own stance is proven to convert 60% of negative responses into a positive, as the contradiction of two thoughts increases her subconscious desire to conform.
According to research at Michigan State and Stanford Universities, her compliance is based on the urgency your enquiry conveys and the theory of ‘cognitive dissonance’ – the psychological urge to avoid inconsistencies of thought that will make her more likely to go with the flow.
So, if she can’t give you a genuine reason why she’s resisting, she’ll be more likely to change her mind. Better still, if she can explain her reticence, but you counter her arguments, then she has no psychological reason not to play along. To the victor, the spoils.

You might be surprisesd to find that you can even utilize these tips with coworkers, friends and family. Each time you successfully persuade someone to agree with you, your confidence will soar.

Persuasive writing is more than just an english class on steroids. If you can master persuasion with hypnoitic writing you will have a powerful tool that serves you well for a long, long time. "An ace in the hole" as the saying goes. Take a close look at the following example of hypnotic writing and you'll quickly see how covertly it's used.
Master Persausion with Hypnotic Writing
Headline is what will make or break your article. It's the first thing that people read and upon it they decide whether to read on or not. It should be riveting. It's a very good thing if it contains a benefit that this article will bring to your readers. The headline should scream out to your audience.
For example, the headline I used for this article does just that. Since I know that people reading this are interested in covert hypnosis, I used hypnosis for the basis. I used the »How To« approach as it has proven to be extremely effective. Another effective way is to start with a number, for example: “5 Steps To Writing An Irresistibly Hypnotic Article”. Odd numbers seem to work better than even numbers.
OK… I started with »How To Write A Hypnotic Article«. Then I added some »spices« to it. I added the word “Easily”, which is an extremely powerful word that plays on one of the fundamentals of human nature. And besides that, I further added the word “Irresistibly”, making it even more, well irresistible. Some authors write up to 30 headlines before they are fully satisfied. But using one of the two simple formulas here you should be able to do it fairly quickly.
Now that we have our headline, its time to go to work on the article itself. What is hypnotic writing anyway? Joe Vitale, best selling author and the father of hypnotic writing defines “hypnotic” as being anything that grabs and holds attention. This is a good definition to go by. Let’s see how to do just that…
Practice this technique to vastly improve your written communications and really master persuasion with hypnotic writing. Let us know if you have a strong interest in more written hypnosis techniques.

Today I'm sharing some very reliable information from an article on hypnotherapy which I found on The University of Maryland Medical Center website. Pay particular attention to the "stages of hypnosis' to get a better idea of what to expect in an actual session.
How does hypnotherapy work?
When something happens to us, we remember it and learn a particular behavior in response to what happened. Each time something similar happens, our physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. In some cases these reactions are unhealthy. In some forms of hypnotherapy, a trained therapist guides you to remember the event that led to the first reaction, separate the memory from the learned behavior, and replace unhealthy behaviors with new, healthier ones.
During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally and may be highly responsive to suggestion. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your subconscious mind becomes more focused.Some people respond better to hypnotic suggestion than others.
There are several stages of hypnosis:
- Reframing the problem
- Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a hypnotherapist)
- Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
- Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist's suggestions)
- Returning to usual awareness
- Reflecting on the experience
What happens during a visit to the hypnotherapist?
During your first visit, you will be asked about your medical history and what brought you in -- what condition you would like to address. The hypnotherapist may explain to you what hypnosis is and how it works. You will then be directed through relaxation techniques, using a series of mental images and suggestions intended to change behaviors and relieve symptoms. For example, people who have panic attacks may be given the suggestion that, in the future, they will be able to relax whenever they want. The hypnotherapist will also teach you the basics of self hypnosis and give you an audiotape to use at home so you can reinforce what you learn during the session.
Becoming a hypnotherapist provides a unique opportunity to assist people who want to make changes in their lives. Hypnosis is often thought of as a stage act or party trick but I've developed a lot of respect for hypnotherapists who use the power locked within a persons mind to heal old emotional wounds and to teach teachniques that help change negative thoughts and behaviors into positive ones.
