Pounding things into someone's unconscious mind

By Persuasion in Politics, Social Persuasion 9 Comments

Hi Persuader,

Is it possible to pound something into a person’s unconscious mind?

By “pound” I mean, force something in.

Well the answer is‚ ABSOLUTELY.

Have I got your attention?

But to understand that answer, we have to delve much deeper into the realm of Evil Persuasion.

Let’s look at this from both sides of the interaction.

Person A wants to get something into the unconscious of Person B. If Person A sets off alert bells in Person B, most likely nothing much will happen.

But what if “A” can create both fear of something AND a sense of trust going from his mark back to him. Would that work?

Let me give you a quick example:

There is a supposed war on terror being fought. Evidence is stacking up in the collective mind of the world that this is true. The news media dutifully talks about it incessantly. You remember 9/11. You hope it won’t happen again. You have a general fear.

But then, you are told that in the interest of “national security” they want to act powerfully to keep this from happening again. You immediately reach for the hope that is being offered. You even feel it is worth suffering a loss of your rights to have a bit of hope that all will be well in the future. (i.e. being groped in airports, being stopped and ordered to produce your papers and much more.)

So let me ask you, did you have something pounded into your unconscious?

Of course, there are a lot of presuppositions in this example. Many don’t want to believe their government would do anything like this on purpose. And that is all fine. But, open your mind to the example as a starting point and you will understand how this can happen.

Ok, but you ask, what can I do with this information.

And that is a GREAT question.

First of all, you can take your mind back! You can learn how to defend yourself. And believe me, you will want, even need to know how to do this. Sooner than later.

Due to the changes and uneasiness that is being felt by all of us, it is easier than ever before to fall victim. Have you felt worry recently? A deep unsettling feeling at times about the future? Sure, anyone can have these kinds of thoughts from time-to-time, but if you look around you, it is happening more and more – on a global scale.

This flings the doors open wide for any evil manipulator (or would be evil manipulator) to seize the opportunity.

Change is upon us. The waters are murky. It’s harder and harder to tell friend from foe, good from bad. And the last frontier that exists, is your mind. And there is a battle being waged for it on many fronts. From governments to big business to people you’d never suspect – all are going after this biggest and most lucrative of targets. The fact is, it isn’t that hard to do, if you know how.

Bringing this home, right now, let me point you to the hopefully more obvious. Every day you have to make decisions. Who should you trust with your finances? How much should you trust a new employee? Is the person seeking your affections honorable? And much more. Any of these transactions could forever change your life. If they intend evil and are skilled, it can be over before you wake up the next morning.

The good news is that I am going to help you see the manipulations. In doing so, I will have to show you how they are done. I hope you are able to resist the temptation to use the information for bad.

More coming tomorrow.

    There is a well known internet marketer who is promoting an investment strategy based the fear of the collapse of the dollar and resulting inflation. I believe it is a perfect example of “pounding into the unconscious”

    A recent promo video is one of the most persuasive I have ever seen.

    However in this case evil intention isn’t an issue. I hope not.

    He is successful, polished and has an excellent reputation in the industry. He has provided instructions and strategies that have resulted in success for many who use (buy) his techniques. This is a trusted figure.

    The “Pounding” is so subtile and based on a level of trust already earned that I didn’t realize what was going on until I read this post.

    If you are active in Internet Marketing any way you will recognize the name Mike Dillard. The program is The Elevation Group.

    Kevin, and readers. I’d be interested if you agree this is an example of subconscious pounding where fear and trust is created in a market place situation.

    Fear is the great “away from” motivator. It gets the adrenaline flowing, kicks in fight-or-flight, generates anxiety and urgency. It tells you you have to get up and go, NOW. The only thing it doesn’t do is give a direction to move towards. But then, almost any suggestion will do!

    I noticed that the guy who gave away the Gov’t “Secrets” in “Wikileaks” is being charged with Sex crimes. What great timing. I never did trust big brother. Yes; it is quite often used against us. Hitler was a master manipulator but he wasn’t the only one. These people are everywhere, so it behooves us to know their methods.

    Thanks Kendrick,

    Great post and it puts me in mind of a way I used to use this approach, in what I hope was a more ethical way. Many years ago when working in large organisations I had a reputation for turning dysfunctional teams around.

    One of the approaches I use to use with teams is to be totally honest with them. I would tell them I had taken over the team because they were being branded dysfunctional, that this was the last opportunity to prove themselves before the team was disbanded and all the horrible consequences that would occur as a result. The organisation worked in a highly politicised and public environment so I would brand the government, the senior management and other support agencies as the bad guys. All of which has some element of truth to them albeit the perspective I put on was a lot higher.

    I would then give them what I thought the team was capable of, how they could be and what opportunities there were for them. I would tell them that the way others were seeing them was not their fault but it was their responsibility and they could change it. I would lead them through exercises designed to elicit and bind values to the team. I would very deliberately get them to seal their commitment to each other and move them on from there.

    In short I would create and demonise an external enemy and make the threat to the team very obvious and graphic. I would then hold out the carrot of a great, high performing team and all the rewards it would bring. In a three year period I lost count of the number of times I did this and it worked every single time, often showing dramatic shifts in performance in days.

    They were good times, thanks for reminding me of them.

    Cheers

    Thanks for posting it.

    Not only is this post timely and very good, Kenrick actually USES the technique very effectively in this post, introducing the fear of government control (which is a fact) and then providing a hopeful answer to it (learning how to defend against the propaganda).

    Great job Kenrick…I hope you don’t mind me unveiling this disguised technique.

    And I do have a question…How can one use this technique to ethically seduce a female companion?

    Thanks.

    Hi Max,

    Excellent work pointing this out. You are spot on.

    As to using it to “ethically” seduce… sorry, but in my book, fear and seduction don’t add up to something ethical.

    Now, if you want to learn how to do it and ethics don’t matter, that’s another story. And if you want to learn to do it to protect yourself from someone doing it to you, that too is another story. Let’s put it this way, I will be going this kind of thing at great length. (And for a sneak peak, you can get an idea of where I’m heading at: The Evil Side of Persuasion.)
