    Put them in danger while you control the danger to them, suddenly they become really good listeners. Amazing!

    This video shows us , as you watch carefully and see clearly in the record or something like that , normal people , crowds or audiences do not do in daily lifes strange and unusual things like mostly crazy people do , if a believe or a trust figure or factor dominate the people it does not matter whether they educated or uneducated people do strange and unusual things, this called hiypnotised or motivated behaviour of herds in a period of time

    Seemed like he took a list straight from the bible at first.



  13. SHOWNU BEST LEADER on September 17, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    I’m having flashbacks when I was in high school and everytime I spoke the whole class would become suddenly quiet. It felt pretty good.
    I was probably saying sth moronic but who cares they listened to me ol



  14. Krypton 114 on September 17, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    If you do the deadly sins with an obvious sarcastic sense of humor, you will be listened to and laughed with.



  18. Craig Abbott on September 17, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    Jokes on you , no one listens to anyone.



  19. Raeigne Vindric on September 17, 2019 at 8:23 pm

  29. rui sentieiro on September 17, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    i don’t like anyone who thinks of themselves as a "CURE".Let´s get real ,between you and me,you on youtube.you said 7 were the things,important to your business.i didn’t ear the ones that define a human being,Stupidity and Assuming, i guess you choose the one’s that suits you best.but please,keep your "theories to improve moi même".seems like youtube is making some people’s dreams,that.there wouldn’t be enough "internet signal" if all the guys i know that are speech influencers,were online 😉



  30. A F on September 17, 2019 at 8:37 pm

    Ты пробовал успеть читать это всё?

    Speaking is a two way communication system. Their reaction to your words should be impactful enough to cause a response by those listening!! Although virtual, a common live action response by "mobs" of people , will have a "believed in", positive virtual mob mentality efffect. Groovism is the belief system that is prepared to broadcast The One. http://www.groovism.org is currently broadcasting various Grooves on YouTube, soon to be streaming 24/7 from around the world!



  32. Rafiqul islam on September 17, 2019 at 8:37 pm

    The ted talk worth watching again & again.Awesome



  33. Alex Dobre on September 17, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    About the "pace". I work in this research institute for cancers and I have a colleague who worked more than me in this job. Every time I ask her a question I regret that moment because takes so much time to explain it. And she is looking into my eyes and it is like she is trying to understand if what is she saying makes any sense. Normally you get the point after 10 words but NO she is still trying to explain to me with 2, 3 examples. By the time she is done, I am in my tea break.



  34. Plane Walker on September 17, 2019 at 8:39 pm

    Me : read title, watch the views.
    "well sir, I don’t know what your gonna say but it works."

    Dogmatism is the nr 1 that is used by the grand majority of people.



  37. Musab Aksakal on September 17, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Can’t achieve the ultimate effect of people always wanting to listen to you, not until you’ve reached Speech skill level 100.

  40. Häuptling der Sache on September 17, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    7 deadly sins are not true, there are people that do everything this and even earn respect with it because there are enough idiots to "understand" them



  41. IG on September 17, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    I love this. I am dreaming of making a silence cafe where everyone would just shut up and enjoy their body, breath and food…

  45. DENNY MARCOS AmdMTru. on September 17, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    someone judging someone like wanna fighting. after someone who judging be warm and who invite to fighting only smile and silent. after silent, judge again and silent smile and nothing, when someone angry.

    this man some one who judging have never get enough in his lives.

    but someone who judging about someone after who judging mad and he don’t quite no smile and judging again again and again and someone who become judging is silent he become won and get trophy.

    and someone who never judge
    never care, he doesnt get anything. its the real lives.

    if you want judge, judge until that some one change and silent.

    if you wanna hear your talking.
    you hear they talking.

    that become yours talking is hearing.

    the judge talking sofly when someone angry silent for along time. make him forget and talking what you want.
    with sofly

    if there not love you they become go.

    if love you, not going anywhere. only in the rooms.
    waiting for you talk.

    here you are named rythem of speak. you must know,
    when you can speak loud or speak low.

    if you don’t know how the time, how the situation, conditional you become not hearing.

    FOKUS WHAT YOUR’S SPEAK.
    i thing if you are not hearing you are not focus what your’s speak, probably its becouse YOUR speak ia not YOUR’S.
    its someone one who please say to him.

    please talk to him.
    not from your’s heart.

    its fifty persen fail.

    SPEAK BY YOUR’S SELF.

    your’s SPOKE, speaking worst.



  46. Shilpi Das Chohan on September 17, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Julian Treasure has simply addressed the matter of human voice, voicing and sound precisely to the point. I am a voice artist and I must say that he is certainly a genious.

    Стать каким-т тама известным
    Выйти на сцену
    И заставить толпу
    Говорить
    ЛЯ ЛЯ ЛЯ ЛЯ ЛЯ ЛЯ

    Как смысл жизни



  50. St. Tropez Var on September 17, 2019 at 8:55 pm
