I stopped by the ASP handcuff booth at Shot Show. I wanted to check out their new line of cuffs, and look at other models I may not have had a chance to play with before.
I did have the opportunity to speak with and spend some time with the head of their training division and also and executive. We had a good discussion on the cuffs, new and older models, and the pro’s and con’s (vulnerabilities) of the models.
They were polite and professional, and decided they wanted to work together to do some testing or R&D.
I did discover that the paws can be changed out in some of their models. From single to double or triple, and they can even have a “training” paw put in. I will have some of these shortly and will post more on these and make a video as well.
I’ve been getting lots of texts and emails regarding my book and how people use it in every day life. I’ve selected a few to share with you to show how varied and widespread it can be used.
#1 I work in a covert capacity for a law enforcement entity and have worked with a multitude of confidential human sources in the course of my career. There are always challenges in this type of work and Kelly Alwood’s philosophies, in this book Behavioral Programming, speak to those issues with practical and applicable techniques.
One example of application ocurred when I was developing a new human source; we will call her Fatimah. I wanted to identify the best approach to build a rapport with her and determine her potential motivation. Due to time constraints, I needed to recruit her as soon as possible and remembered Kelly’s coined technique of “Brute Force Brain Hacking”, which is often used for a “difficult” target of recruitment but in my case was an issue of limited time. I needed to put a full court press on Fatimah to successfully recruit her without jeopardizing the newly developed rapport. I recalled three techniques from Kelly’s book that I thought would best suit the variables that I was working with; the “four personality traits” (Ch6), a “blitz” version of AFECT (Ch6) and the Reticular Formation (Ch8).
While talking with Fatimah, I pointed out a woman crossing the street carrying numerous bags while also pushing a stroller. Fatimah mentioned that she was probably a single mother who was just looking to make “ends meet” while taking care of her family. Utilizing that information, I was able to quickly ascertain that Fatimah was a Caretaker. After talking further, and using a lot of right-brain language, I found out that Fatimah was a stay-at-home mom, a wife, and a daughter who checked on her parents multiple times a week. This confirmed the personality trait and therefore her motivation: to help others in need. Ultimately, I opened my recruitment pitch by taking the role of being in need of Fatimah’s help and that she was the only person who was in the position to help me. This approach, along with a promise of “assistance”, not money, for her and her family, resulted in a successful recruitment and a successful case outcome.
#2 A common way I apply Behavioral Programming is putting people in a good mood. Almost anyone will respond positively to an observant compliment so that is usually what I go for. This can be anything from mentioning the effort your boss has put into organization to complimenting a girl on her hair. A good example is this morning when my girlfriend was in a bad mood so I told her I was impressed by her dedication to education. The rest of the day went smoothly as a result and the same tactic can be used with nearly anyone with a similar outcome.
#3 I use the approaches in Behavioral Programming literally every single day. The four cornerstones of building rapport are essential to any successful relationship, no matter if we are talking about long, or short, term ones. Two examples come to mind, with Siding Goals being opposite for each. These happened to me.
In the first situation, I was in Cabo, having ridden my motorcycle down there. I had a couple of tequila’s at a restaurant about a block from my hotel and wanted to call it a night. Mexico has a law that requires you to have a helmet if you are on a bike. It apparently doesn’t specify that you have to be wearing it, but you have to have it on you. There were bikes everywhere and every one of them had helmets strapped to the back but no one was wearing one. Anyway, I got on my bike for the one block ride to my hotel, no helmet with me, and was immediately pulled over by the policia. I was informed of my infraction and told that I would have to go to the station and pay a fine. I was polite and friendly and told the officer that I was tired and I was sure he had better things to do than all of that paperwork (Common Enemy). I was happy to go with him, though, but, was there a way to pay the fine on site and avoid an inconvenience for us both? (Siding Goals) Then I apologized to him for breaking the law, asked him if he was a motorcycle enthusiast and mentioned how frustrating it must be to deal with clueless tourists all the time. I mentioned that I used to live in a tourist town and we talked about how annoying tourists could be. (Agreement). He had me follow him to a parking lot and we took care of the “fine” and I threw in an extra 100 pesos for my new “friend” as a “courtesy”. (Random Favor) At the end of the day, I rode away, still without a helmet, with very little drama.
All of us have been in a conversation, probably many, where we felt the other person was conducting and interview or interrogation during a social and casual interaction.
This makes you feel awkward, and you are never quite sure how to respond, as you cannot be certain of their intent. Is it just their odd personality, their direct way of inquiring, or are they really digging for personal information?
The way that you respond to them from your words to your body language will determine how this interaction plays out; whether your actions shut down the conversation, or whether you build rapport and turn the conversation pleasant, productive and into a lasting acquaintance or friendship.
Discover how easy it is to take control over every conversation and make them beneficial. Learn how to text and email and get the results and responses you desire. Learn to determine and understand what the other person needs from you. All this and more are covered in detail, and explained with real life conversations in each chapter.
My latest book, Behavioral Programming; The Manipulation of Social Interaction, is now available through Amazon, and will soon be in the ITunes bookstore. This book comes from 6 years of research that started out as a program designed to enable US Special Operations personel to acquire human assets and solicit help quickly behind enemy lines.

With this system of psychology you can alter a persons behavior entirely through texting! No face to face is needed. No human contact is needed. No vocal exchange is needed for this to work completely. In fact, often times it is advantageous to do so. Think about this, many times when face to face with someone you have said something that you meant, but smiled, chuckled, and/or made a funny face while saying it. That told the other person that you were embarrassed to say it and that you would not stick to it, you really didnt mean it. Your body language and tone of voice gave away your weakness. When you deliver programming via text messages, there is no self sabatage with those things because they are taken out of the picture. You can say what you mean, and the other person will not be distracted by your physical antics that take meaning and seriousness away from your words.
Behavioral Programming works at the most basic natural and subconscious level to program behavior where it begins, in the brain. What you say, and the context that you say it in has all the meaning. Your tone of voice may help or hurt your true emphasis on your words, but is not needed at all. You understand all the books you read without someone reading them to you, and they can to. This system of psychoprogramming is so effective that it works through the air via phone text or email. Using texting to program someone is like having a wireless router to their head for remote brain hacking. It gives us the direct access we need to them without actually having to be with them or even see the person.
Nothing out there has been taught like this. The human brain is a computer, learn to hack that and you can program it to do anything. Learning the code is the key, and the code is Behavioral Programming.
Spoorology is the science of spoor, commonly known as tracks. Spoor is the proper term used for tracks, like footprints, and other physical evidence of somethings presence.
Spoorology, or tracking is a science as well as an art. The physics behind spoorology is science, while the viewing and interpretation thereof can be an art. Much as learning to paint, or play and instrument, the art of tracking is somthing that is learned, over a long period of time.
The study of spoor can be divided into several different disciplines. Forensic, meaning expert witness and crime scene recreation for law enforcement, SAR search and rescue, military combat tracking, animal tracking, human behavioral science, and many other forms.
The photo above is a Mounted SAR CERT team in Indiana. They are commonly called out to “run down” or track missing persons of a non violent nature. This can involve trackers on foot, vehicles, ATV’s, horses, and even tracking dogs.
My friends and I have been doing scientific study of Spoorology for many years now. We have taught classes, published articles in magazines and journals, written books, Master Degree Thesis, and made videos all with the intent of spreading the knowledge of this science. Some of us have developed and ran certification courses in tracking. Some of us have been expert witnesses for the court in the United States. With this new science, we can add to the worlds knowledge about human behavior, psychology, physics, and other disciplines.
Spoorology or tracking is also focused on animals by some. These scientists use the animals spoor or tracks to research animal behavior, follow the animals, and check their health. Some survival schools teach tracking, most of that is focused on animal spoor, and much of it is not in depth. The classes are normally designed just to raise awareness. To get people to start noticing and seeing spoor, following it, and at most, the very basic interpretations of the spoor.
What our research does is to actually go in depth, to a forensic level of the science, and bring forth information not otherwise possible to find by looking at other parts of the human or animals life. Blood tests and dna cannot give you the same information as you get from the quarries spoor.
I have developed a system that will actually identify each specimin as an individual, simular to DNA or fingerprints.
This was the latest course, last week Oct 2014 in St. George Utah with OnPoint Tactical.
Course: Surviving Deadly Contact
This class will be hands on training, force on force with paintballs, and live fire with pistol and carbine. Students will learn learn the rules of combat, shoot and move. Every game has rules and those who do not know the rules will definitely lose.
What is the most dangerous place in a room?
What is the order you engage your targets?
What are the levels of cover?
How do you handle multiple opponents?
If you don’t know the rules, you can’t win..(other than pure luck)…
This class focuses on real life threat scenarios: a shooting or robbery in Walmart, attempted carjacking, scuffle at the restaurant, muggings in the mall parking lot, home invasion.
Years ago hackers tried to devise a system of tricking people into giving them information with the intention of hacking into their computers. Recently pick up artists have developed a system of making themselves desirable to others. Con men have used lies and phsycology for decades to deceivetheir victims.
Hackers devised “social engineering” to accomplish their goals. Its basically a way to trick people into thinking you are someone that you are not, with the goal of giving them confidential information. There isreally not much to this approach. Pick up artists have actually done a lot of research and development on their tactics. These tactics do work, but the scope of this approach is very limited, and with a narrowly difined goal. Short term results (and relationships) are achieved with this tactic. Con men simply use lies to get what they want.
Behavioral Programming is different. It is a way to get people to change their behavior and interaction with you. It is a way to make strong, lasting friendships, get warmer results from strangers, strengthen your current relationships and change everyone in your workplace.
This research was started years ago with the original intent of teaching US Special Operations Forces, Security Contractors and others in fields of high risk for being compromised and alone in a hostile land. We needed a way for them to solicit help fast, and probably from indiginous persons. Gaining the help from strangers could be the key to their survival. The system must be effective and fast, and last.
Kevin Reeve and I started teaching this in our UrbanEscape and Evasion classes to US Special Operations personnel. Kevin came up with the first set of rules, and we tested them out. They worked beautifully. As the program developed, I started to make notes of behavior modifiers that were consistent throughout our society. My notes kept expanding until I had enough to actually fill a book.
I am currently working to finish the book. The content is original and unique. I have never seen these things printed before, or even spoken of at a seminar. Thats why I am writing a book. To share new information to help you make friends, change behavior, and get the results you want out of people. The backdrop to all of these strategies is honesty and real intent. You can make friends out of strangers, get the promotion, make lasting friendships just the way you are. You dont have to be fake or pretent to be something your not to get the results you want. You just need to know some do’s and dont’s, and know what makes people happy.
You will see some tips posted here, and the complete book will be out shortly.
