“Are you the droid that I am looking for?”
If you’re a Star Wars fan, you may have had a long desire to ask someone this question.
But in case you’re not, or have forgotten this famous jedi mind trick, the conversation went like this:
Stormtrooper: “Let me see your identification.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi: “You don’t need to see his identification.”
Stormtrooper: “You don’t need to see his identification.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi: “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”
Stormtrooper: “These aren’t the droids we’re looking for.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi: “He can go about his business.”
Stormtrooper: “You can go about your business.”
Obi-Wan Kenobi: “Move along.”
Stormtrooper: “Move along… move along.”
You may be wondering, what this has to do with Mind Bending Language?!?
In short, Mind Bending Language is a little like the Jedi mind trick of hypnosis.
For the hypnotist, it’s a smooth, fast and elegant technique – and allows you to eradicate a subject’s preconceptions and problems very quickly.
Dare we say, it’s one of the “sexier” hypnosis techniques because of the intrigue it stirs, and given its effectiveness – has a way of making hypnotists fall instantly in love with it.
So what makes it so impressive?
The main reason is due to its nonlinearity. Or otherwise put, its unpredictability and unexpected nature.
So when you use it, no one can predict what you’ll say or do next.
Another reason is because of its sheer speed – it’s like a magic bullet.
Which is where the beauty of Mind Bending Language really lies, and what makes it really fun to use. Because of its unpredictability and speed, it has a way of surprising, even confusing, subjects.
In a way, it jolts them out of one reality and into another where they see things in a new perspective – really quickly.
However, it’s important to note that while confusion does open your subject’s mind up to new ideas – confusion is not the main purpose behind Mind Bending Language. It’s more of a temporary, but very a beneficial, side effect of opening the mind to new possibilities.
