Conversational hypnosis is a hot topic. Why? Because itís often touted as a
method of mind control and people like to believe that they might be able to
control the mind of another. Is it possible to control someone else? Yes and no.
Strictly speaking, it isnít possible to control someone without using force.
However, you can control others with their permission. Seems like a
contradiction, doesnít it? It isnít really.
Conversational hypnosis is a method of persuasion, very often strong
persuasion, available to those with particular skills. The skills mainly involve
observation and the knowledge to put certain observations to use. Letís look
at some of these skills and then tie the whole thing back to getting someoneís
permission to control them.
To have success persuading an individual you must first establish rapport
with them. You can accomplish this in many ways. One of those ways is to relate
to similarities you share with an individual, something you have in common,
whether it be a friend, the admiration of a celebrity, your hometown or anything
else. The stronger the connection, the more effective the rapport.
Mirror and Matching For Rapport Building
Another method you might use for building rapport is mirroring and matching.
This is the subtle art of mimicking another. And when I say subtle, it must be
so or you run the risk of completely blowing the entire rapport building
The rationale behind mirroring and matching another is that the individual
unconsciously realizes that youíre very much like they are. And people tend to
like and accept others who are like them. To achieve this you might emulate
their speech, their breathing or move in a similar way. This is a powerful
rapport builder. Of course, there are other techniques used to establish rapport
and weíll look at them as we go forward.
With rapport established you have Ďunofficial permissioní to
persuade or temporarily Ďcontrolí a person. Most often we see conversational
hypnosis sold as a covert way to seduce or influence someone to buy a product.
In fact, covert hypnosis is another name used to describe conversational
hypnosis as sleight
So, you can see that there really isnít any way to influence another
without first getting their permission through building rapport. Iíll continue
the discussion of conversational hypnosis and further explore even more
effective rapport builders in a post titled Covert
Hypnosis. See you there.
