Project MindFoolness Live!
What Is Project MindFoolness Live?
MindFoolness is based on the idea that our thinking is flawed. We struggle to interpret our world accurately, leading to an imbalance in our lives. We feel stressed, strained and strapped between two uncertain viewpoints. Our feelings become distorted, disrupted and dysfunctional when faced with the rapid changes of 21st Century life.
But by using brand new science concerning the brain, our microbiome, our sleep, diet and exercise habits and socio-economic psychology, you can start to see how the human brain is wired to:
- Mistake perceptions for reality
- Suffer from Experiential Blindness
- Be fooled by our own minds
MindFoolness is all about giving you ways to live up to your potential through merging these two angles of human thought: “How do we feel about life in the classroom, boardroom and bedroom?” and “What does neuroscience, psychology, behavioural insights, sociology and biology teach us about how we think, act and behave?”
Together, we are making sense of these two seemingly opposing viewpoints, the Human Stance (lived experiences) and the Science Stance (academic theory), by combining the tools of Mentalism with the approaches of Mindfoolness.
What is it like on Project MindFoolness Live?
Every Project MindFoolness Live! event is unique and we aim to meet the objectives everyone brings, but you can see a good mix of examples below of what you can expect from attending the Project MindFoolness Live! day.
Your Experiences Are Built, Not Built-In
What Does Learning MindFoolness Give You?
You may have never thought about learning magic and mentalism before, but that’s where its strength lies. The novelty, the newness and the nature of mentalism is in its completely new experiences. It is no overstatement to say that if you change your experiences today, you can change who you are tomorrow. This way, you can learn that your experiences are built, not built-in.
Challenge yourself with these ideas: don’t just blindly defend your old concepts, explore and discover new concepts. By developing a rich set of concepts, you have a toolbox to become the architect of your life. The greater your range of experiences, the greater your ability to think well and put your knowledge to good use.
By learning Mentalism, you get the tools, tricks and techniques that you need to stand out amongst the competition, open your mind up to new ideas and create lasting connections with your audience across your personal and professional life. By learning Mindfoolness, you get an understanding how your mind works, how you can be fooled and how you can use this to live up to your potential.

What Do You Get From Mentalism?
Mentalism is a phrase we use when we talk about a particular set of magic tricks that gives you the appearance of being able to read minds, predict the future, move objects without touching them and influence people's choices.
Use the following links to find out more about Mentalism:
Mentalism teaches us that we can see the world through more than one frame of reference. MindFoolness shows us that these frames of reference can mislead us and create fallacies in our thinking. If you can generate these fallacies, you can learn to spot them. If you can spot them, you can learn to avoid them. And if you can avoid them, you can learn to use them to better live up to your potential, create a sense of purpose and inspire people with your message.
Example of Mentalism and Mindfoolness
On Project MindFoolness Live! we teach you a stunning effect that involves your audience freely picking a random object from a bag. This object could be anything. You, as a performer, chooses to connect with the audience member through any means possible. You can even be blindfolded.
Somehow, whether it’s intuition, influence, prediction, mind-reading or pure psychology, you are able to tell them what object they are thinking of.
This act of impossibility is simple, and you’ll be able to perform it anywhere and anytime you want to anyone by the end of the day. However, the pure impossibility of this trick shows us that we cannot believe what we experience, but we experience what we believe. The reactions from this can be amazing. It all relies heavily on the fallacies of our thinking and our wish to believe in the mysterious and the impossible.
