The reality is that the simpler ones are often more effective because the novice practitioner uses them without worrying too much. At the same time the person being influenced accepts simpler commands more easily.
That is why it is worth focusing your efforts on making the most out of basic mind control techniques, such as using questions with presuppositions. This technique can produce numerous different patterns for persuasion that can be used for all sorts of purposes.
It is often difficult to persuade a person to do something when you are making straightforward statements about he benefits. In this case, using a question with presupposition can be of great use.
For instance, instead of saying, “Doing X is good for you”, you can say, “How has doing X helped many people get benefits Y and Z?”
In this case, you do not have to answer the question as you have already made a statement within the sentence. At the same time, the person ask himself the same question, so it is easier for him to accept what he has presupposed.
This one of the mind control techniques can be used with any open ended question. It is particularly effective for making embedded commands. All you have to do is ask, “How/When will you do X?”
There is a slightly trickier way in which you can use this technique, but you have to be careful so that it does not backfire.
You can presuppose that there are other options in front of the person that are just as good as the alternative you offer. In this way, you will get the person to accept that doing what you want is actually good.
For instance, you can ask, “Do you know of any other effective method for getting benefits Y and Z, apart from doing X?” It works, provided that you do not present any other alternative as better.
Now you can use the mind control techniques involving questions with presupposition more effectively. Keep learning more with my article Mind Control Techniques-Employed by Successful Salesmen.
