NLP stands for neuro-linguistic programming. NLP is a method of communication (to other people and to yourself through your inner dialogue and thoughts) that can help you shape the world around you using techniques to frame the way you and others perceive your words in a way that can shift one’s perspective into something that’s more favorable for you.
Our in-depth ebook covers a lot of different topics when it comes to mind control. NLP is one of many techniques, but it’s far from the only way to give yourself an unfair advantage as you traverse through this life. NLP is kind of like having one cheat code enables, but the rest of the techniques that you can read about in our book take everything much further. We can’t reveal all of the techniques from our book publicly, we just don’t think it would be responsible to unleash it in its entirety to any random person on the internet. We want to teach people who are serious about this, because they tend to treat these techniques with the required level of respect.
NLP vs. Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a technique that can put people into a heightened state of suggestibility. Granted, some of the videos you’ll see of people running around on stage and barking like a dog are maybe not the most scientific, and some of the mare definitely not real. There have been plenty of people who have admitted, after the fact, to playing along with a hypnotist because they didn’t want to admit, in the heat of the moment, that it wasn’t working on them. Nonetheless, they still did the thing that the hypnotist asked them to do, but it’s more of a social norm controlling them than the actual power of hypnosis.
In any case, some people relate NLP to hypnosis but it’s not the same. Hypnosis requires you to be primed, you’re very aware that you’re being hypnotized when it’s happening. NLP, on the other hand, works best if the other person has no idea that you’re using these strategies. NLP is a lot more subtle, and arguably that makes it much more practical and useful in your day to day life.
It’s Not Psychoanalysis
The easiest way to explain NLP vs psychoanalysis techniques is that psychoanalysis focuses on looking at the “why” of a situation, whereas NLP is all about understanding the “how”. It’s a lot more practical. NLP is a set of social strategies, tips, tricks, and techniques that will help you get what you want out of life by helping you come out on top of more situations that you run into in your day to day life. It can be subtle things, too, it doesn’t all happen magically at once. Imagine if you had just a slight upper-hand of understanding and control over every small encounter you have in your life. Not everything is going to suddenly land in your favor, but more things will, and that extra little bit of confidence and good outcomes that you’ll experience can start to compound and snowball.
For example, if you bought a faulty product and you try to return it, wouldn’t it be nice to get your way more quickly, more often, without having to argue with the clerk or call in a manger? Or, if you’re asking for a raise at work, or your boss is treating you unfairly, or you had concert tickets but you have to come in on the weekend – all of life’s little annoyances – what if just 10%, 25% of them were to shift to your favor? These things can add up overtime, and NLP mind control techniques can help you achieve better outcomes by understanding how to communicate in a more successful way.
Can NLP be used for evil?
Some people wonder if mind control / influence techniques like NLP can be used for evil. The answer is yes, of course. Anything can be used for evil. A glass of water can be used for evil. Even good things like charity can be used for evil. On the other hand, NLP can also be used for good. Water can be used for good. Charity can be used for good. As such, neuro-linguistic programming is neither good nor evil, it’s a neutral set of skills. Some people will use NLP for good, like to program their minds to get over trauma or to succeed in life, love, their careers, etc. Other people may use NLP techniques to manipulate and mislead others, but the techniques themselves are neutral.
Understanding how social interactions work and how phrasing and words can influence better outcomes for yourself is not all that much different than learning how to negotiate better, or how to be more assertive, but those techniques never seem to draw the same questions about whether or not they’re evil or bad. Your own perceptions of NLP, or your preconceived notions, could be based on the specific NLP practitioner you’ve run into in the first place that has made you curious about these tools and techniques, but the best thing you can do is to leave your bias behind as you journey into learning more about NLP. Take it for what it is, and as you learn more about NLP and mind control techniques, you may learn a lot more about yourself based on how you choose to use them.
