Conversational hypnosis can be quite powerful in changing the minds of others and accessing their subconscious to make suggestions and cues about their thoughts, feelings, actions and behaviors. When done correctly, conversational hypnosis allows a hypnotist to tap into the subconscious mind of another without the person realizing that they are in a slight hypnotic state. This is beneficial to hypnotists that want to covertly hypnotize someone to influence their decisions or thoughts on a particular matter.
Because conversational hypnosis is done without the listener realizing that they are being hypnotized, conversational hypnosis is also commonly referred to as covert hypnosis. This form of communication can be a powerful tool that influence others and manipulates their behavior in a certain way. When looking at examples of people that use conversational hypnosis to advance themselves, the examples of motivational speakers, CEOs of companies, managers, religious leaders and sales people often surface. These professions rely on a certain group of people believing in the person, and also seeing them as an authority in their field.
Conversational hypnosis has the power to drive the behavior of others, so many of the professions listed above rely on this tactic when dealing with people face-to-face. A big part of conversational hypnosis is body language and gesturing, as well as pre-selected wording and intelligently planted words throughout the conversation. The skills used in conversational hypnosis are very common in professions and situations that require one person to “buy into” what another person is saying.
Many people believe that those who are successful and confident are partially lucky, and partially excellent at using the techniques of conversational hypnosis to get ahead. Developing the skill of conversational hypnosis allows the speaker to be more confident in the message that he or she is delivering, and confident that the message will be received and processed by the subconscious mind of the listener.
The subconscious mind is more receptive to information than the fully alert mind, so guiding a listener into a slight hypnotic phase using conversational hypnosis will allow the speaker to tune into the subconscious mind. Because of this, listeners involved in a covert hypnosis conversation are more apt to comply with the suggestions and cues given by the speaker. This makes conversational hypnosis powerful in influencing others behaviors and thoughts.
Conversational hypnosis works differently with different people and different personality types, so it’s important to gauge the listener in the conversation carefully to determine how easy or hard it will be to influence their subconscious. Conversational hypnosis is most powerful then the speaker is able to form a psychological connection with the listener in order to gain full trust and confidence in the conversation. If this bond is not made early on in the conversation, the power of conversational hypnosis diminishes greatly.
The act of conversational hypnosis is a skill and a knowledge concept that is fairly easily learned. To become a master of conversational hypnosis, one must practice often and develop the confidence, body language, gestures and correct words that will guide someone into a hypnotic state during regular conversation. Another component of conversational hypnosis is being able to properly assess personality types when attempting to use conversational hypnosis. Once you understand the basic personality types and how to determine a personality type, you will be able to make predictions on the future behaviors of certain personality types and how they will react to covert hypnosis suggestions and cues. When this is done correctly and with precision, conversational hypnosis can be one of the most powerful tools to use in conversations.
