Negative words are:


You get the point.


Scientists have told us that the human brain cannot process negative words such as the one’s mentioned above.

That means when you tell someone not to do something, their mind will only process the information that comes after the negative word.

In reading that last sentence you cannot -not think about what I had just written.

In order to fully process what you were seeing you actually had to go ahead and think about what I was telling you not to think about in the first place.

Kind of cool when you think about it.

You could easily slip in a command phrase after your negative word to slip right past your prospects defenses and they would never even know about it.

However, don’t try this on everyone.

Gotcha again.
