Creating Fast Connections
Be a Copyclass #
Watch your target's body language and match their movements as closely as possible. This includes common gestures, movement speeds, rhythm of motion, and larger poses.
Pick up on your target's choice of nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc, and echo them back in your own words. This creates subliminal report.
Potent Imaging #
Find out your target's interests and base language metaphors around them. For example, someone who likes boating will like to hear about an idea "holding water" or a good plan "setting sail."
Employ Empathizers #
Sprinkle conversations with small phrases that show you're listening and understanding what someone is saying. Phrases like "I see what you mean," "that's a lovely thing to say," or "that's a very fair point."
Anatomically Correct Empathizers #
Base your empathizers around your target's primary sensory inputs. If they're more visual and use eye/visual metaphors, then use the empathizer of "I see what you mean."
The Premature "We" #
Use the word "we" when talking about you and your target to subliminally plant the ideas of closeness and intimacy.
Instant History #
Bring up special or memorable moments at a first encounter with someone. This helps create a sense of shared history.
