Are you looking for some great conversational hypnosis lessons, well you have come to the right place.
Today I am going to teach you how to get almost instant rapport through matching and mirroring.
Rapport is one of the most critical factors in any persuasion situation.
Without it you will never be able to persuade anyone to do anything, with it you can pretty much do anything.
One of the best ways to get rapport with someone is to eliminate as many differences as possible between you and your subject.
One of the best ways do this is by mirroring (copying another person's action's as if you were looking in a mirror) and matching (reversing left and right, the opposite of matching) When matching a person you can copy the following Whole body - Match or mirror the person's overall posture and stance Partial body - Match their consistent behaviors such as shrugs, tics, gestures, head nods or other similar kinds of behavior Half body - Match or mirror their upper / lower body Breathing - Match the depth and speed, you can also match their inhalations and exhalations (synchronized breathing is one of the most powerful forms of non-verbal pacing) Voice - You can match tempo, tonality, volume, intensity and intonation patterns (this form of mirroring is very useful when speaking over the telephone) Remember one of the most important factors in mirroring / matching is subtly.
You need to take great care to be subtle and not mimic the person you are talking to.
If you are not subtle in your matching they will catch on to what you are doing and will not be too pleased.
