Think Tank Words for This Episode


Show Notes for Episode 208

  • Mike and Chris talks about an experience relating to the word Debenture.
  • "Robert" in his drunken tirade, accused Mike and Chris of being blatant liars.
  • He's already forgiven but Mike does the d-i-c-k chant anyway.
  • Speculation leads to mindreading. Mindreading is either true or false.
  • Mindreading happens usually to NLP people. "If I know NLP, I can mindread!" NLP teaches us not to mind-read.
  • Jokes for Frenemies - None are harmful! Unlike Glen’s brother’s joke, when his brother disenfranchised him…
    1. Pin a glass of water to the wall
    2. The coin in funnel trick
    3. Hiding the mobile phone
    4. The Annapolis sit-up (US Naval Academy in Maryland)
  • Using ideomotor response:
    • Hellstromism grips
      • The pendulum
      • Table tipping
      • Scan for your card
  • Hypnosis involves compliance and yes sets just as the juvenile tricks we mentioned.

Empowering Question: 

Ask yourself…What ways will I continue to learn and grow…and become a hilarious and fascinating person…and which of these jokes or tricks…will I demonstrate to someone…starting right now…?
