I've been studying the field of psychology and personal development for over a decade. My experience is that when many get involved they do so under many preconceived notions. It was through a lot of trial and error, success and failure, that I finally learned what was what and what is wrong when it comes to working with people.
One of the things that I decided to do was to put on paper some of the things that I wish I would have known going in when I first decided to study human behavior and creating change. This book is a series of metaphors that each highlight a theme that I have discovered as being important when acting as an Agent of Change.
Tom Vizzini & Kim McFarland are perhaps the skillful trainers of Anchoring that I have come across in over a decade of training in Persuasion and Influence. For those that don't know Anchoring is literally a skill that gives it's users feelings at the touch of a button. Imagine being able to capture virtually any feeling and attaching to it to a signal that would allow you to recall it at anytime, anyplace for any use that one could conceive of. In the below clip is a quick demonstration of something that is called, 'Condiment Anchoring'. Kim in this clip has the person that she is working with recall some very pleasurable states. She then attaches them to some sugar packets as she shifts the intensity of the feelings merely by moving around the sugar packets!
