behind conversational hypnosis, believes that human beings are often, perhaps
unknowingly, put in and out of a trance, as if it is a natural thing to happen

you use it that can actually say if you are being ethical or not.

it does work, and yes you can most definitely use it to help you overcome your
limitations and become a master when it comes to persuasion and influence.
