How the Media is Hypnotizing You, an Interview with Mike Mandel – Episode 239

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young discuss the Democratic Party and its divisive tactics. They also consider the dying concept of loyal opposition in America and share their thoughts on the greatest ideological threats to the country right now.

They invite guest Mike Mandel to the show, an expert in hypnosis and neurolinguistic programming (NLP), to discuss how people use this to more effectively communicate everyday messages. Because of how we almost experience various forms of media, it’s crucial we understand how advertisers, TV producers, politicians and more are constantly trying to change how we think and control us.

People are extremely receptive to metaphor and social proof, and Mandel explains how others are using this to infiltrate your beliefs. He also offers tips on resisting the pressures from the manipulative media.

A qualified trainer of Neurolinguistic programming and the Advanced Ericksonian Hypnosis Instructor for NLPWorks, Mike runs his own online hypnosis academy with students in over 50 countries. He teaches interested lay people, therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and medical doctors, at the University of Toronto, and is certified in a number of highly effective psychotherapeutic disciplines that get rapid results.
