The Famous Quotes Pattern

The Verbal Sky Hook

Here’s a fun trick to play at parties with your friends.

Or if you want to insult somebody or tell a girl she’s beautiful.

It’s called the “Quotes Pattern,” and there are many ways to use it.

Let’s say you’re a guy, and you want to tell a girl she’s gorgeous. (Or whatever your situation may be). Now, if you walked right over and said it to her directly, she might get embarrassed, or see it as a lame pick up attempt.

But when you put it in a quotes pattern, it’s pretty fun.

You walk over, and think of a reasonable excuse to start talking to them.

Tell them they remind you of somebody. Ask where they work or shop or whatever.

For the sake of this example, let’s say you’re a guy, she’s a girl, and you’ve told her she reminds you of some girl you sat next to last year at school.

“You remind me of my friend, she was really beautiful. One time we were hanging out at Starbucks, and some guy walked right up to her, looked at her and said, ‘You are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen, I’d really like to go out with you'”.

And when you say the “you are really beautiful” part, look right at her and really imagine that it’s you saying it to her.

Now, this in and of itself won’t do anything. But it’s fun to practice.

You can also do this if you’re in sales.

If you’ve got a customer sitting in front of you, you can start talking about your colleague who’s a really pushy salesperson.

You can say something like this:

“This guy is crazy, he talks about how awesome this product is, then looks right at the customers and says, ‘You really need to buy this right now,’ I mean he sells a lot of stuff, but I could never do that.”

Then when you say the “you should buy this” part, look directly at them and really mean it.

What this does is get the person to imagine whatever it is you said (you should buy this, you are really beautiful, etc) without feeling like YOU are saying it, so they won’t feel any pressure.

Again, this by itself won’t do much. It’s not a magic bullet, but if you use techniques like this peppered throughout your conversation, they can add up to a big effect.

Kind of like Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s famous skyhook. That ONE shot didn’t make him a superstar, nor did it score all the points. But it was one very powerful set of tools within an otherwise AWESOME tool kit.

And in the Covert Hypnosis course, you’ll learn TONS of awesome tools.
