How did President Trump overcome all the odds and obstacles and both attract and maintain a large and passionate following? The answer is charisma, in fact, hypnotic charisma. Now, the author of this article is an associate of mine and we work together on a project involving selling hypnotic charisma secrets, and audio sessions you can use anywhere. More on that at the end of the article.
Even President Trump’s opponents can acknowledge his very real hypnotic charisma, and while he may not have had any formal training or hypnotic charisma sessions, you can access such sessions, listen to them, and actually start to naturally tap into your own hypnotic charisma.
Donald Trump, Political Mass Hypnotist?
By Ralph Benko
Dilbert creator Scott Adams plausibly claimed that Trump is a “Master Wizard” using hypnosis on us. As one of “us” I considered this theory worth examining. The evidence shows that Trump is, in fact, using technique indistinguishable from hypnosis.
[T]he media are being trolled by a skilled manipulator, or in Adams’s parlance, a Master Wizard. …
“What I [see] in Trump,” says Adams, is “someone who was highly trained. A lot of the things that the media were reporting as sort of random insults and bluster and just Trump being Trump, looked to me like a lot of deep technique that I recognized from the fields of hypnosis and persuasion.”
One such technique is what Adams describes as a “linguistic kill shot,” in which Trump uses an engineered set of words that changes or ends an argument decisively. According to Adams, when Trump describes Jeb Bush as low energy, Carly Fiorina as robotic, or Ben Carson as nice, he’s imprinting a label you already feel about these people. They’re not random insults, but linguistic kill shots that you can never get out of your mind.
Similarly, where the media see random insults, Adams sees Trump creating a significant polling gap between those who attack him and those who compliment him, resulting in chilled aggression from his opponents. Trump, says Adams, uses “anchors,” which are big, visual thoughts that drown out any other argument.
Trump may not be alone in employing political hypnosis. The Journal Sentinel Online reports that a New ad portrays Feingold as hypnotist:
A group targeting former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold has a new ad out portraying him as hypnotist trying to make the public forget his past votes.
The ad by the anti-Feingold Wisconsin Alliance for Reform shows him dangling a stopwatch as if he were hypnotizing viewers to forget his votes for tax hikes, immigration reform and … Obamacare.
There is no hard evidence that Donald Trump (or Russ Feingold) received training in hypnosis. Pace Adams, it is far more likely that Trump, especially, has a natural gift, developed by his work in reality television. As the Washington Post’s Frances Stead Sellers recorded in What Trump Learned On The Apprentice:
“I’ve never had lessons,” Trump said. “I’ve always felt comfortable in front of a camera. Either you’re good at it or you’re not good at it.”
The show’s climatic boardroom meetings, he said, in characteristically boastful form, were a reflection of his natural talents.
“It was 100 percent ad lib,” he said. “Directly from me.”
Some who got to know Trump through the show say they have not been surprised in recent months to watch him perform in similar fashion on different stages. Trump, for instance, regularly holds forth before packed auditoriums with seemingly stream-of-consciousness speeches that captivate his audiences.
Just how does Trump “captivate his audiences”? Hypnosis would explain it to perfection.
Hypnosis has absolutely nothing to do with a swinging pocket watch. The swinging watch is an obsolete device — and cultural cliché — for inducing a hypnotic state. Hypnosis simply involves gently inducing a reverie, a state like a daydream: deep relaxation coupled with heightened alertness, while engaging the faculty of the imagination and softened analytic faculty, coupled with the power of suggestion. First rate politicians routinely employ this technique.
Hypnosis is a lot like yoga and meditation. In fact it historically is related to these, the word itself having been coined by 19th century Scottish surgeon James Braid, the father of modern hypnosis, whose work clearly demonstrates his close study of both. Like yoga and meditation hypnosis is moving through the “Rogers production adoption curve.”
Hypnosis, like sushi, is moving out of “fringe” or “risky” into “new” and even “hot.” Hypnotism was placed under a dark cloud in popular imagination by George du Maurier, in his 1894 novel Trilby. This book now is long forgotten but was an international sensation, a Harry Potter of its era.
You may never have heard of Trilby. You have heard of its anti-hero, the sinister hypnotist Svengali, a fictional character devised by du Maurier. “Svengali” entered, and still haunts, the popular imagination.
Hypnosis’s sinister characterization was perpetuated by Hollywood as a fantastic trope. Consider such classic films as The Manchurian Candidate. (Happy 100th, Ol’ Blue Eyes!)
Believing in Hollywood myths of hypnotism is akin to believing in Dracula, werewolves, and zombies. These make for a great pulp entertainment. As often is the case with Hollywood (as in Washington) dramatic license trumps facts.
So? Are Trump (and Feingold) really using hypnosis?
What is hypnosis? What’s its relevance to politics?
Short answers: Trump is using something indistinguishable from hypnosis. Feingold, perhaps, too. Understanding hypnosis is relevant if it is being used, in this political campaign, on us.
What is hypnosis? Dilbert creator Scott Adams blogged about hypnosis, in which he was thoroughly trained, a decade ago in his Dilbert Blog:
I describe the state of hypnosis as acquiring a power. The subject has all of his regular faculties operating plus he gains some more, if he has no objection to those new powers. For example, a subject under hypnosis would get a little extra power in one or more of these areas:
- Extra relaxation
2. Extra imagination
3. Extra focus
Those extra powers don’t sound like much, but they are. …
About one person in five can experience what hypnotists call “the phenomena.” For those people, their powers of imagination become so strong it is almost indistinguishable from reality.
Key word: Imagination.
Ben Franklin, long ago, was made a royal commissioner in France. He, among other leading savants, was appointed by King Louis XVI to a royal commission to investigate a precursor to hypnosis, Mesmerism. The Commission’s report disposed of the claim that it was based in an invisible force called “animal magnetism.”
The Commission concluded that “the chief causes of the affects are contact, imagination, and imitation.”
Key word: Imagination.
We need not go back to the 18th century. One of the most esteemed psychologists of the 20th century was Stanford professor Ernest Hilgard. Hilgard and his wife founded, and directed for over 20 years, the Laboratory of Hypnosis Research at Stanford.
The American Psychological Association named its Lifetime Achievement Award for Hilgard. This rather neatly offsets hypnosis’s sinister reputation. Hilgard once succinctly defined hypnosis as “believed-in imagination” (personal communication to Michael Yapko, PhD).
Key word: Imagination.
When a political figure appeals to our imagination that is indistinguishable from hypnosis.
Consider Napoleon. He observed:
What a thing is imagination! Here are men who don’t know me, who have never seen me, but who only knew of me, and they are moved by my presence, they would do anything for me! And this same incident arises in all centuries and in all countries! Such is fanaticism! Yes, imagination rules the world. The defect of our modern institutions is that they do not speak to the imagination. By that alone can man be governed; without it he is but a brute.
Donald Trump, in his presidential (and perhaps Russ Feingold in his senatorial) race speaks directly to the voters’ imagination. This is nothing more, or less, than political hypnosis. The “hypnosis hypothesis,” even better than Byron York’s “brief theory of Trump’s outrageousness,” may explain Trump’s persistence as the Republican front runner.
Imagination is powerful. That said hypnosis may not be sufficient to carry Donald Trump all the way nomination or to election.
“Believed-in-imagination” — hypnosis — can be used to great political effect. Still, political hypnosis has limits with which Napoleon ultimately failed, and with which Donald Trump may yet have, to reckon.
Yet hypnosis is a force very much to be reckoned with. As Napoleon said, more than once, “Imagination rules the world.”
Consider the “hypnosis hypothesis.”
YOU TOO CAN TAP INTO THAT HYPNOTIC CHARISMA!
Charisma Can Be The Difference Between Wealth and Happiness On One Hand, Or Poverty And Sorrow On The Other Hand
Whether you are a sales professional, a business manager, a lawyer, a civil servant, a first responder, a bank teller, an aspiring actor or model, or even a barista — whatever you do — having charisma is like money in the bank.
Socially, charisma is what will gain you that seat at the cool kids’ lunch table.
And charisma is what will make you stand out as the perfect romantic partner (whether you are already married — rekindle the honeymoon! — or single and looking for your breathtakingly handsome Prince Charming or staggeringly lovely Snow White to notice you and fall in love with you).
Welcome. We are here to offer you some simple “life hacks” — safe, simple, easy ways to “hack” your own mind — to unleash the latent charisma hiding deep within you and bring it out, and gain all that charisma will brings to your life.
Pssst! Very few people know is that charisma is something that can be developed by anyone. Now you are one of them. Yes, some people are born with charisma. Most — like actress Marilyn Monroe, who started out as a very mousy Norma Jean Baker — develop it.
You can develop it too! You’ve come to the right place, where developing your charisma is inexpensive, fast, easy, and delicious. Follow along.
We – my professional partner and I — are two international experts in training people to do just that. More on that shortly. First things first. What is charisma?
Charisa is a Thing. It is not something mysterious or amorphous. Your latent charisma — “compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others” — can be cultivated and quickly unleashed in simple, easy, practical, affordable steps.
We know how. And our recordings available here will easily, effortlessly, unleash your latent charisma.
Little known fact. Charisma experts — such as psychologists — have absolutely proven that charisma come from some basic building blocks.
These blocks are: social and emotional expressivity, sensitivity, and poise.
We’ve taken it beyond the theory into practice.
Together, let’s set free your inner super-hero, as you discover and use your hidden charisma.
Charisma comes from very specific qualities of your presentation.
Among these qualities are:
- your body language, how you stand or sit;
- the tenor of the sound of your voice;
- your very specific choice of words for their implicit suggestions;
- your ability to radiate “grace under pressure,”
- your ability to validate your own gut instincts;
- your ability to be present-in-the-moment and really connect with people; and
- your power to use the Power of Yes to overwhelm negativity.
Why believe us? We are two of the most recognized charisma specialists in the world. We have taught hundreds of people and have thousands of followers in our virtual community around the world. Now, having proven it in practice, we wish to take hypnotic charisma to the next level and bring it to millions of lucky people.
Hypnotic charisma is not a clinical process but it is a professional one.
I am a Registered Nurse and my partner in this practice is a retired White House lawyer.
And we are two of the most highly trained, accomplished, hypnotists in the world.
We have distilled the charisma techniques that will powerfully and quickly unleash your inner charisma. We have distilled these into seven self-hypnosis recordings. Hypnosis isn’t kooky or spooky any more. It’s been studied extensively by places like Harvard University Medical School, Stanford University, and the Mayo Clinic (none of which are we affiliated with but you get the idea). It has been proven to be a powerful, safe, modality to engage the mind-body connection and the superpowers that come with doing that.
Modern hypnosis no longer involves “trance.” It induces a pleasant state of reverie — like a daydream — in which your consciousness is in no way diminished and you never surrender control of your mind to others. Listening to our self-hypnosis recordings is like listening to a guided meditation.
But it’s not metaphysical. It’s practical. Its benefits are powerful and tangible. (Like helping you get that raise you deserve!)
Modern hypnosis uses the powers of your imagination to transform your presentation of your natural self in a charismatic way. Don’t confuse “imagination” with “imaginary.” It is a sleeping superpower inside you. Hypnosis, according to one of its greatest researchers, is, simply stated, “believed-in imagination.” Very cool, very safe, stuff. The right stuff.
Believed-in imagination — hypnosis — is so powerful! As Napoleon once said, “Imagination rules the world.” Using his imagination this short, unprepossessing, provincial solider of humble birth made himself an Emperor.
Just imagine what you can do with this power!
