Daniel Harel breaks the myth of mind reading and reveals what mentalism really is about
Daniel Harel mentalist shows the secret art of seemingly being able to read minds using 'body language reading'. He also explains how to use irrational logic to develop your mentalism skills.
Mentalism is all about solutions
- Firstly, how can I know your secret PIN number?
- Secondly, how can I guess the name of your first childhood crush?
- But then, how can I make someone choose a specific colour?
Mentalism uses a set of tools, and these are used repetitively. You will learn the basics of mentalism, but then if you want to develop your own style and your own mentalism tricks, you need to find other ideas and inspiration.
What are the solutions used by everyone else in mentalism? In mentalism, the two most common themes are:
- Influencing people.
- Reading body language.
But in this Tedx talk Daniel explains how he uses irrational logic to develop better mentalism skills. He does this by asking these three questions:
- Question #1 - What is everyone else doing?
- Second question - What is the most absurd solution that no one is using?
- Question #3 - What is the craziest and most absurd way I can get that solution to work?
