The redefine is a special hypnotic language pattern that can be used to shift the attention of the other person to another topic.
As you can already imagine, this can be an extremely effective way to persuade someone to listen to your side of the story. This language pattern can also be used when you feel that the current topic is becoming a little offensive or uncomfortable.
Without knowledge of any similar language pattern it can be very difficult to shift the attention of someone from the current topic and you can end up having to sustain a conversation that has a really bad subject matter.
How can you apply this particular pattern?
Here are a few examples:
You can use it when you are debating or arguing with another person and the other person is really pressing on with a particular issue.
The redefining pattern can also be used when you are trying to sell a product or idea to someone. The redefine can be used when a person comes up with an objection to what you are offering at the moment. That way, the other person won’t be able to pursue and develop the objection anymore.
This hypnotic language pattern can also be used in situations where you have to train or teach other people. Often, trainers face the challenge of having to deal with distracted participants. This language pattern can help bring back people to what you were really talking about in the first place in the event that the target issue is sidelined by members of a group.
When you are attracted to someone and you want to lead the other person to some other topic/issue (preferably one that would benefit you as an ardent admirer).
Now that you are more or less aware of just how powerful this language pattern can be when it comes to expressing the right ideas and persuading other people, let’s look at the basic template or formula for a redefine:
The issue at hand is not (A), it is really (B) and that means (C)
Pay close attention to the arrangement of the words and the three major elements of this language pattern (A, B & C). The first element smoothly connects with the existing issue; this creates a seamless connection between the redefine statement and the last statement of the other person.
However, as you reach the first element (is not A), the current issue is negated and a new issue is quickly introduced (it is really B). The new issue is further imposed on the conversation through the third element (and that means C).
This pattern might look like a tongue twister in the beginning, but it’s really easy to use.
