Master story tellers are the best to emulate if you are to master persuasion psychology. The language and art of story telling is deeply embedded in the concepts and ways in which we use hypnosis. This article deals with the story telling tips, strategies and real techniques used by master story tellers that could enrich the method of your story telling.
The first strategy is letting your own stories ‘slip out’ naturally. Constant practice would train your brain to tell stories over time and your stories to begin to flow naturally. As you get more accustomed telling stories, your mind will start to relax and you will begin to remember stories in your life that you could fit into the contexts that have been set.
The second master story tellers’ strategy in persuasion psychology is to collect storehouse of great stories. Write down and record the highlights of stories that have great impact on yourself and those around you as this could come in handy as you practice hypnosis. This could serve as a library that you could access whenever needed such as when a certain story is perfect for a situation you are in.
A word of caution here is to never memories the stories, let the little changes happen as long as the main point stay the same as reciting stories word for word is one way to kill a story.
The third story telling master's strategy in is to remember the highlights of each story. Emphasis should be put on the highlights of a story and details should be varied. Story tellers have always had audiences that returned to hear the same stories because they never told the story in the same way. Changes that take place in the rhythm and pace of the story will re-excite your audience and will entice them to come back for more.
Finally the fourth master story teller's strategy in persuasion psychology is the use of signal recognition systems. This involves being alert in observing the signals that the listeners are exhibiting about what they want to hear, what they need to hear and fitting your stories to suit their needs.
