Better known as ''Mentalism", both Keith Barry & Derren Brown can manipulate perceptions and hypnotise people with ease.
Informative & entertaining to watch
Methods employed include N.L.P. (Neuro Linguistic Programming), anchoring ideas by emotional association, reading unconscious communication (eg. body language, muscle tension, eye dilation), memonics (memory enhancing methods) and understanding how the subconscious mind registers information while the conscious mind may not.
I think by understanding these methods we can better guard against implanted perceptions & beliefs.
Keith Barry reveals throughout the video several ways he can make you think you have free choice and that he can read your mind, but in fact your subconscious mind registers information that he 'imprints' by way of gestures, verbal & visual cues & idea associations.
Derren Brown in the last ~3 minutes shows you a video summary of how he manipulated the audience to choose what he wanted.
Derren Brown convinces Simon that he wanted something else than what Simon had originally wanted. N.L.P. is superbly demonstrated here.
Television has programs, news are presented by anchorman, advertisments, branding/trademark and media people particularly politicians (eg. Barack Obama) use these methods to manipulate minds.
