NLP doesn’t actually work, though. People notice the emphasis, especially Brits since most of our humour is based on it, plus repetition is viewed as an insult. If it works on anyone, that’d be certain, greedy Americans.
Think about it. If NLP worked, you could rob a bank with it. If the military were using it, maybe, but they’d be using it in combination with torture and trauma formation – and THAT’s the thing that works.
It’s literally selling morons on magic words aka SPELLS.
Those “magic books” about “personal magnetism” have been around for a century, you can find them archived. I have read them as a teen for kicks. There are even shitty “hypnosis” ones clearly aimed at getting some random Victorian dude laid. Most self-help just rips it off… and badly.
Hell, they sold them on “Law”* of Attraction aka the Wishing Well or Be Your Own Genie.
We wuz all fairy godmothers…. no homo…
It reminds me of PUAs who slag off teachers for only producing more teachers… when they’re selling “courses” on how to …eventually sell PUA courses. At least the teacher’s subjects actually exist.
Contrary to what he says, low IQ does fall for emotional appeals because they can’t be bothered to research the speaker (before or after the talk) and the con artists are dangerous because they socialise and blend with real business people, I’ve seen them round London at top hotels, like lampreys on the genuine successes. Go grey rock on them, this is why celebrities of all kinds MUST seem aloof too. The narcissists think they deserve to spend time with only “special” people, it’s the entitlement and use Scientology type cult tactics like “raise your hand” – an obedience tactic learned at school. It could be legitimate, with a gifted teacher, but their use is telling.
These people literally block the exits – that’s illegal?
*Whose law? God’s? What makes it a law? What’s the equation? How do other forces interact? Pseudo-intellectual crap. You have low IQ sociopaths targeting the other low IQ, so usually men on men. Both are quite vapid and certainly greedy but there’s no real airhead stereotype in culture for men so they never question themselves – or they’re portrayed as oddly quirky, lovable and successful (Dumb & Dumber).
