The purpose of the book "Como Manipular e Persuadir Milhares de Pessoas" is to show how you can develop yourself as a communicator and to present your ideas clearly, enabling you to persuade crowds. As the author Ricardo Ventura says, by putting these tips into practice, you will become a great speaker, an Extreme Speaker.
The book defines an Extreme Speaker as the person who knows how to communicate well in all areas, going through a casual friend talk until a job interview or speech, for example.
An Extreme Speaker needs to be able to speak well everywhere.
And don't think that talking well is a gift that comes from the cradle. Speaking well is a skill and, like all other skills, it can be developed through a lot of training.
Oratory is considered an art. The art of knowing how to communicate with the public in a clear and well-structured manner.
And to master this art, the first step is to overcome fear and shyness. Often, we bring from our childhood the fear of speaking in public which can be disturbing when it is necessary to speak in public.
But as we have already said, to be great in oratory, just practice and train your communication skills, because with content and trust you will be able to persuade thousands of people.
Before you begin, develop your upright and confident posture, prepare your arguing power, and divide your presentation into 3 steps:
In the introduction, you will identify yourself to the audience and create the first impression, which is crucial to conquering people and guiding them in the course of your speech. So always respect the audience and prepare your speech, adapting yourself when necessary.
During the body, where you will be presenting your main idea, developments and complementary thoughts, always keep a clear language so everyone understands your point of view. Give examples to substantiate your idea, and asks questions to the public, interacting with them, creating bonds, and drawing attention.
Finally, we have the conclusion phase, where you must end the speech with a golden key. To do this, prepare a closing for the subject and present a catchphrase to be marked in the viewers' mind. And finally, thank everyone for their attention.
These are some techniques presented in the book that, when put into practice, will help you to take the first step towards the mastery of the oratory art.
At this point of the book "Como Manipular e Persuadir Milhares de Pessoas", we are introduced into the analysis of the tools that allow you to persuade people by using words. Let us better understand the weapons of persuasion presented by the author Ricardo Ventura.
In the 1970s, two scholars began trying to understand the human brain and its forms of expression, studying how therapists were so good at identifying signals that our body had. Thus, they modeled the verbal and non-verbal language of these therapists and formed patterns that they could replicate.
In 1974, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was born, which, as the author defines in a free translation:
"It is a set of models and principles that describe the relationship between mind and language and how this relationship can be organized to affect mind, body or behavior."
NLP is considered a tool that unites several areas of study, from psychology to linguistics. It aims to improve human interaction by stimulating the use of the 5 senses and understanding our mental models and how our thoughts and emotions impact our actions and the results we want to achieve.
With this technique, you can work to control your anxiety, improve your performance in the presentations and develop your skills to make your life better.
Mental triggers could be quickly defined as the "autopilot" of our mind. They record our experiences and decisions, allowing when similar situations are repeated, they can make those decisions automatically.
For example, you don't think about walking, blinking and breathing. These things happen automatically, because our brain has recorded these commands.
In the area of persuasion it is no different. Ricardo Ventura states that it is possible to use mental triggers that will allow your audience to buy your product. Several brands use these triggers to use the purchase, offering freebies and discounts on their products.
From now on, we will look at some of these mental triggers and how they can be used in persuasion art.
This section of the book "Como Manipular e Persuadir Milhares de Pessoas", it is explained that communication is not just talking. The posture and movement of the body is also fundamental. That is why they say that "the body speaks".
Mastering body language is very important for not only getting your message across, but to understand others too. Comprehending how body expression manifests itself, we can detect joy, sadness, anger and even lies.
In the process of using the body to communicate and to make a good impression, the author Ricardo Ventura presents some tips that you should always be aware of:
There are 2 books that we can relate directly to the one we are studying now: Influence and Pre-suasion, both from Robert Cialdini.
In "Influence", Robert Cialdini introduces the "mental shortcuts" to persuade people. These shortcuts are mental triggers presented by Ricardo Ventura, where we can use as an example authority and scarcity.
In "Pre-suasion", the same author complements his studies on the art of influencing people, saying that you must capture and channel people's attention. And as we saw in this Pocket Book, conquering the public is very important to the success of your presentation.
Analyzing the perception of another author in the book "How to Win Friends and Influence People", Dale Carnegie talks about praise as a way of influencing: one of the strongest characteristics of human behavior is the desire to be valued by others; we all like to get compliments and hear that we are doing a good job.
Now that we have understood this fantastic theory explained by the author, we have to apply it in our daily lives. So, here we present some topics, by this way you can start your journey to be a great communicator:
