As the candidates for the office of President of The United States of America move closer and closer towards Election Day, one New York based Hypnotist says that they are using hypnosis skills to persuade voters to tick their box and support them.

It's not the first time that this subject has come up. The creator of the Dilbert cartoons has already expressed his opinion that Trump is a "Master Wizard" using hypnosis on the public. Forbes magazine has even written a whole article on Donald Trump as a mass political hypnotist.

Appearing on Pix 11 morning news he spoke about his theory.

“Trance or hypnosis is simply a narrowness of attention” He said “a focus and absorption on one thing when we are not distracted. In that state you are more suggestible, so our subconscious mind is more open to suggestions for new attitudes and beliefs, about our politicians, our country and our policies.

He was asked about Covert Hypnosis and is it something that Donald Trump is using.

“Covert hypnosis is simply altering that way we think in a disguised way. So when Ted Cruz repeatedly used the word imagine over 30 times in his presidential announcement speech, he was actually speaking with the hypnotic pattern of a preacher.” Said Jeffrey Rose.

He explained that some of the techniques being used mean that people follow along with the words that are being spoken and the cadence of the words. By pacing the language you can encourage people to follow along. Basically, it's just making it less boring.

He was also asked if the politicians were praying on our fears.

“Absolutely, they are praying on fear, but they must have rapport, so that you like them”

Of course, you can use as many techniques as you like, but the truth is that most people can see perfectly well how they feel about someone who stands up in front of them. What he is really saying is that politicians are trying to manipulate you into thinking that they are the right person for your vote, so I suppose in that case, nothing much has changed !

 Does Donald Trump Use Hypnosis in His Speeches? Examining the Evidence

In the world of politics, the power of persuasion is often a topic of intrigue and speculation. From the tone of voice to the choice of words, politicians carefully craft their speeches to sway the opinions of their audience. One figure who has drawn significant attention in this regard is Donald Trump. With his distinctive speaking style and ability to captivate crowds, some have questioned whether he employs hypnosis techniques in his rhetoric. Of course we will likely see a decline in his cognitive behavior over time, and it seems that some people will become wise to his use of outright lies.

Hypnosis, some may say as a tool of influence, involves inducing a trance-like state in individuals to enhance suggestibility and manipulate behavior. While it may seem far-fetched to suggest that a public figure like Trump would utilize such methods, there are certain aspects of his speeches that have led to speculation.

One notable characteristic of Trump's speech delivery is his use of repetition. Throughout his campaigns and public appearances, he often repeats key phrases and slogans to drive home his points. This technique, known as "linguistic repetition," can be found in various forms of persuasive communication and is intended to reinforce ideas in the listener's mind.

For example, during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump frequently used the phrase "Make America Great Again." This slogan became synonymous with his candidacy and was repeated ad nauseam at rallies and in media appearances. The repetition of this phrase served to create a sense of unity and purpose among his supporters, effectively embedding the message in their consciousness.

Moreover, Trump's use of vivid imagery and emotive language is another hallmark of his rhetorical style. He often paints a picture of a dystopian America plagued by problems such as crime, illegal immigration, and economic decline. By appealing to people's emotions and tapping into their fears and frustrations, he is able to establish a connection with his audience and rally support for his agenda.

The biggest problem with this is that whilst he may be an effective communicator, he uses untruth to seel his ideas, which seem to be based around things that will benefit him alone.

In his speeches, Trump also employs what psychologists refer to as "anchoring." This involves associating certain ideas or concepts with specific words or phrases to influence how they are perceived. For instance, he frequently refers to himself as a successful businessman and a "deal-maker," thereby anchoring his image in the minds of the audience as a capable leader. We may see this unravel in the future as some suggest his business accumen is a TV construct and not the real truth. Court cases my show a different story to his business savvy.

While these techniques are common in persuasive communication, some argue that Trump's use of them borders on the hypnotic. They point to instances where his supporters seem to enter a trance-like state, hanging on his every word and cheering enthusiastically at his rallies.

However, it's essential to approach these claims with skepticism. While Trump undoubtedly possesses a unique speaking style and a knack for capturing the attention of his audience, there is no concrete evidence to suggest that he employs hypnosis in his speeches.

Moreover, attributing his influence solely to hypnosis overlooks the complex socio-political factors at play. Trump's appeal to certain demographics, his use of social media, and his unconventional approach to politics all contribute to his success as a communicator.

In conclusion, while Donald Trump's speeches may exhibit elements of persuasion commonly associated with hypnosis, there is no real proof that he employs hypnotic techniques to manipulate his audience. Instead, his rhetorical prowess can be attributed to a combination of linguistic strategies, emotional appeal, and a deep understanding of his target audience. Whether you agree with his politics or not, there's no denying that Trump's ability to command attention and rally support is a testament to the power of effective communication in the political arena.
