Show Notes for Episode 175

  • Everyone tells lies...even white ones!
  • You can always say "...that's interesting..."
  • We attempt to spare people's feelings by not saying the whole truth
  • Some people are pathological deceivers - They can't stop!
  • Some lie just for attention - others wait to pounce...Sometimes for years...
  • The elderly fall prey to deception a lot - They're targeted...
  • Remember: Once they're in...they're in!
  • Surveys are often used to set up yes sets and compliance sets!
  • We're all in this together!...No we're not.
  • Kurt Vonnegut calls it The Granfalloon! We're Oldsmobile drivers...
  • A polygraph doesn't detect lies, only difference
  • Intuition isn't psychic - It's conscious awareness of unconscious calibration
  • We need to have accurate detection of threat, but it mustn't be turned too high
  • Little or no eye contact is a sign of deception
  • Always look for initial reactions to important topics. It will be accurate!
  • Watch talk shows to see guests lying!
  • Always remember the power of intentional silence! You'll get even more detail, so remain silent!
  • A truthful person will answer immediately on important issues because they don't have to think about it
  • The pause before answering is a red flag...
  • Watch for self-calming gestures...External kinesthetics override internal kinesthetics!
  • Greek worry beads work the same way! So do stress balls...

Special Report from Hypno North

  • The Starbucks Story! Using a curve-ball to detect a lie...
  • The Ken Sweatman Story as a detection method
  • Too much detail means they don't feel like they sound convincing
  • You can use intentional silence to counter it...
  • Run a story out of sequence to test it. Especially backwards...
  • Watch out for barrier creation! It's to make them feel safer...
  • Remove the barrier so you can increase the psychological pressure!
  • Initially using contractions when accused means they're probably telling the truth! The opposite is also true...
  • People seldom point their finger when lying!

Empowering Questions: 

Ask yourself: What are the elements of deception that are new to me...that I need to know about...to be sure that I can deception...when it's used on me...?

Metafive: Master Class and their mistake

Ending: Don't laugh...
