More importantly, misuse of this information may result in jail time or death. Do not attempt any of these tricks without the direct supervision of a responsible professional.

 

Body Language

We are not born with trust. Trust has to be earned.

 

The Human Lie Detector:

We all wonder at times if people are telling the truth. Next time you’re in doubt, look for these body language signs: nervous restlessness, wringing and clinching of hands, contradiction of composure, looking calm with a nervous voice or vice-versa, shifting of the eyes, sincerity of laughter.

 

The Eyes have it:

Gamblers use the information written above all the time in Poker. They are called “tells.”  One of the most commonly used “tells” is the dilation of the pupils. If they get big, it usually means the player is excited because he holds a good hand.

 

If the gambler raises his bet and his pupils are small, that means he’s probably bluffing.

 

The understanding of the pupil dilation can also be used every day. Although it varies from person to person, you can use it as a measuring instrument to gauge how people around you feel. Next time you’re not sure about someone being attracted to you, check the size of his/her pupils. It might be a good indicator. It can also work for salespeople, they can check your pupils to see if you’re excited about a product.

 

First Impression

Bad first impressions can be rooted in truth and are hard to overcome. Appearance, posture, facial expression, and dress are important, so the next time someone says, “you can’t tell a book by its cover,” ignore it.

 

Recent studies have proven that first impressions are accurate 67% of the time. It is considered to be a trustworthy sixth sense. It can increase to almost 100% accuracy once we hear the person talk.

 

So remember what they say, “you only get one first impression.”

 

The Handshake

People underestimate how much we can learn from a simple handshake. Here are some interpretations of my favorite squeezes:

 

#1: The dead handshake is the most confusing of all.

 

Often times it is taken as a sign of shyness, but that is not always the case. The person in fact may not be feeling well, doesn’t like you, is depressed, or has a general lack of interest in your acquaintanceship.  When faced with this shake, revert back to other body language signals to make an assessment. The other handshakes are much more reliable and informative.

 

#2: If the handshake is quick and abrupt, the person

is asking for a formal relationship.

 

#3: A person who grips your hand as firmly as you grip

his/hers, says he/she wants to cooperate.

 

#4: The enthusiastic firm handshake says: “I’m confident that I am the boss around here.”  If during any of these handshakes someone ticklesyour palm with his/her finger, keep a good eye on“it,” and don’t let your pupils waver.

 

Sneaky Smoker

A man was sitting at a bar smoking a cigarette.

 

Every time he exhaled, the lady sitting behind him would politely cough. After an hour he had enough and turned to her and said: “Lady, you sure aresensitive, I smoke two packs of cigarettes a day and don’t have a cough like that.”

 

Public scrutiny of smokers has become so overwhelming to some that they are now fighting back.  They don’t care about second hand smoke, they want to inhale the first hand. They believe anyone can stop smoking, but it takes a very strong will to face lung cancer. When convictions and addictions mix, you know there is going to be trouble.

 

They have drawn the line at airline no smoking policies. After the captain has turned off the seat belt sign, the smokers go straight to the toilets. They moisten a paper towel that they pat around until it sticks over the detector. Smokers can take four or five big puffs without causing any problems because they exhale into the sink that has a suction device. They even dispose their cigarette down the drain. The only exposure to getting caught occurs when they leave the restroom. If no one is around, they are home free. If someone is waiting at the door, they cough and say in a low serious voice: “Damn it, someone has been smoking in there.”

 

The airplanes do not have cameras in the restrooms, so it’s very difficult to prove who was smoking. Due to many unpleasant experiences with confrontation, airline employees have learned they are not getting combat pay. So generally the worst they give is an ominous warning that comes to nothing. After all, some say that second-hand smoke is second-hand cool.

 

Twenty-First Century Phobias

We have all had super glue stick our thumb and index finger together for a fraction of a second until we pull them apart. Super glue was invented to seal wounds quickly in Vietnam; it’s more skin friendly than you might think. You can wait longer than a fraction of a second and still pull your fingers apart.

 

If you have cavities and I chew tin foil, it will creep you out.

 

Let’s say you’re sitting at a park bench and a maintenance worker unexpectedly starts a power tool behind you, it will make you jump.

 

Getting Even

Some people turn the other cheek to get most of the blanket. These people only believe in karma if someone cheats them. A person I once knew, who believed in karma, use to go around punching people in the mouth asking them “what they

did to deserve that.” There is probably nothing more bitter than an opportunist who miscalculates.  Disappointed opportunists are notorious for “get even” schemes.

 

House Down

When the victim is away on vacation, the hustler rents a truck and puts a little mud on the license plate. Wearing sunglasses and a fake mustache he pulls up to the day labor meeting with a job offer.  He tells every able bodied man with a hammer to get in the back of his truck, and that he will pay each of them twenty dollars an hour for four hours work.

 

He takes them to the victim’s house and says:

“I’m going to build a new home on this land. I need each one of you to start helping me knock this house down. I will be back in four hours to pick you up and pay you. So start hammering away and I’ll see you soon.” Of course he never returns.

 

Box of Rocks

The less mean spirited revenge seekers might send a box of rocks C.O.D.

 

Merry Christmas

Some of them wait until two days after Christmas and place an ad in the newspaper that says: “Will buy your used Christmas tree for five dollars.” They put their victim’s address in the ad.  This happened to a friend of mine once. Hundreds of people brought their Christmas trees. The Boy Scouts had truckloads. He spent two weeks arguing and apologizing to people who ended up throwing their trees in his yard and driving off in anger.

 

Winning a Fight

Often clever people and those who use the information in this book for the wrong purposes, can’t get a fake ID, or out of town fast enough, so they have to fight.

 

When these situations occur the hustler goes straight into the weasel: letting the shoulders hang down; acting wimpy hoping to avoid the confrontation; cocking the head and stuttering pathetically.  This makes the aggressor overconfident. If there’s no way of getting out of the fight, the hustler springs the hardest punch he can muster to his opponent’s nose and takes off running for his life.

 

Easy Jail Time

Most wise guys end up in jail. The clever ones know how to type because typing is the easiest of trustee jobs.

 

How to Get Everything You Want Can you keep a secret? So can I. But if you find the answer, let’s write a book together.
