Ok, on to the classical mind control (brainwashing)
Now first, it is true that NLP does make use of practical techniques to influance people, but not as a manipulation as in brainwashing. NLP and
hypnosis elicits a desired responce, this is true.. but here is the big difference... it does NOT break down the psychological defenses to do so.
Now there is alot of declassified CIA material here, but I know no one here will use this in a negative or distructive or harmful manor. It will
however shed some light on some relationship 'problems' I do believe. If there are spouces or BF or GF out there that feel this is a little too
close to home, get help, talk - now.
Instead of a long drawn-out book type format that I usualy make you guys suffer through, I'll try to make it short and sweet and more of a list type
fashion (ok, maybe a bit more here and there.)
Here are the major factors, the basics in the classical mind control (brainwashing).
.control of communication
.control of nessesities (food, water, rest) The CIA and KGB maximised
on this one)
.use the persons own criticism against him or herself
.bypass resistance on the conscious mind (can be done by hypnosis
overtly or covertly with stories and such. Basicaly - a highly charged
emotional responce (i.e. the trigger I was talking about in the last
post) ...***I think that is the part that you must have read somewhere***
.befriending the subject and becoming helpful and even kind (seemingly) -
it throws them off, shrugs off the critical attitude towards the handler.
They even become greatful! (which is why the rottem, mean, controling
spouse only has to be less than cruel than usual and possibly say a kind
word every now and again and the abused and controled spouse seems
happy with them.)
.a little surprise or upset of usual events (a day off so to speak) to throw
off the usual routine (takes away the security the person had
with 'routine' - routine is a security, even if it's a 'bad routine' full of
things that are hurtful or negative - it's comforting to know what's
happening or what's going to happen next. (***Note to moms, kids
need routine - it's makes them feel secure and loved***)
.creat a feeling of helplessness, uncertainty of what's expected - they'll
have a greater need and want to please the handler.
Now of course I didn't expand on these things - there's much to be said about each item I listed, but this is only a small part of how these things
work - but you can see here how these things can be done in such a way on a daily basis (as in marriage or boss/employee etc) ... or in a situation
like a lock downs (military, POW, jail, crazy guy "new age church-like" convent, Manson etc) or situations like convents and organizations that want
to live apart from others for various reasons... a 'leader' emerges...
It can happen very easily without the person or person even being aware till it's so restraining and controling that it's just easier to stick
with 'the routine' than it is to get out of the situation (if it is possible).
K - the little guy needs mom. Hope this is a good basic. But it's important to remember that each of these things can be done without mallisious
intent, and can appear very normal. Take the first one, isolation. A couple begins to date. It's only been a week or so and suddenly the guy is
there picking up the girl almost every day (they are geting very friendly, things are going well). All is still well, she's happy as is he. Then
she happens to be out when he comes calling on her one night. He get's angry. They have a fight. But she's already 'in love' or don't want to
call it quits on what might be a long term relationship. So she remodles her behavior... she's there every night or at least calls him to see if
he's coming over before she leaves... to avoid a fight of course. Still all seems normal and she hasn't realized that she has changed her behavior
(classical conditiong). This goes on for a while, and before you know it, it's completely normal in their relationship to be together every night -
all the time. Still no problem as far as anyones concerned - because they are "in love" and couples in love do that right?
But that's not all folks. They talk on the phone ALL the time (not that that's uncommon). He calls every day, and if she don't answer or
don't call - he isn't happy, a little ripple happens. If the line is busy when he calls - he wants to know who she's talking to etc... another
ripple. Before you know it, she reports to him about who she talks to before he has to ask - before he has a chance to be unhappy. He don't like
her talking to guys, of course. He don't like her talking to 'that single girl' who always wants her to 'go out with the girls'. ON and on we
This is just the begining, it took maybe a week or 2, a month at the most, to change this girls behavior. She went from seeing a large number of
friends and talking to many people - to seeing and talking to pretty much just him. So how will she know that things are a little off when they get
worse later? By then she'll have already been making excuses for her being unavailable to friends and family for so long, that they won't notice
iether. Also, without someone to talk to about these things - it's like the frog in a pot of boiling water... start it out with cold water and
increase the temp slowly and he don't even know he's being boiled to death until it's too late.
The next step in this imaginary situation would be controling who she sees and talks to. As you can see, it pretty much happens automatical with step
