Show Notes

NLP is a hot topic.  Since the book Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking has come out, there has been many discussions about NLP and its uses as well as scientific reasoning behind it.  Today we will talk about:

  • What is NLP?
  • How can you use it to influence someone’s perception in therapy?
  • Is NLP scientific?
  • How can NLP be used by the every day person?
  • Why are there not so many women in Social Engineers?
  • Why is Sharon Conheady so awesome?

You can find out more about Jasmine St. John at her site about her therapy practice.

We hope you enjoy it and feel free to send us your feedback.
