    Default How do I respond to ''How did you do that?!''

    Hey Guys

    I have been practicing a lot with simple magic tricks to use in the field. Before I became aware of the PUA nation I had never considered the idea of magic, but after reading and watching hundreds of articles/videos about it being useful, I have put a good amount of time into learning some stuff, and I am preparing to put it into action.

    I know how to do the tricks, and I know when to use them to prevent myself from being known as ''The magician'' or ''The entertainer''.

    However I am stumped at what to do if the girls, or any of the surrounding AMOG'S persistently ask me to demonstrate how it was done, or request I constantly repeat the trick.

    I like to be prepared for any situation I can see as likely to occur. Obviously in field a lot of what you need to do is based on you being creative and adapting to your surroundings and improvising, but this is one thing I feel sure will come up, so I figure, why not ask the nation and try to prepare for it!

    The trick is to make the magic trick look like something not out of the ordinary. Don't act like your surprised by it, just do it and smile.

    I do simple magic also after I engaged conversation with them for a while. What I usually then do if they ask to repeat it is I say this... "Once is magic, twice is education..."

    If my target asks me to show me how I did it, I tell her... "I might tell you if you ever get the chance to see me outside (name the establishment you are at)"...
    This could lead to them a Number Close as well. I pulled it off pretty well in my past.
    Don't let them dwell on the trick because like you said, you don't want to be known as the magician, but rather just different and mysterious. If they continue to dwell on it, just brush it off lightly and say, maybe later.
    They eventually will stop.

    The one time it got real annoying to me was with a completely drunk chick my friend was talking to. She just wouldn't stop about it. I told her she is being rude (negged her).
    That could work also. Just tell them no. If they persist, neg them saying they are not respecting you and they need a time out. Something quirky and stupid like that to neg them.

    Good luck buddy. Let me know what happens.

    Another thing... if they ask how you did that... tell them that it's a secret.
    If she persists, tell her if I tell you, you won't be as amazed, so let's keep it the way it is.

    There are plenty of ways to just brush it off. Just ignoring it and acting like it isn't a big deal usually does the trick.

    Again, good luck.

    Oh...I LOVE this question. I see this question as a perfect opportunity to bridge into deeply sensual rapport. My response will typically go something like this...let me ask you a question first, without thinking, don't figure it up, just feel the answer, how many days does the average person get to live...(typically they grossly over estimate) 1 million, actually we only get about 28,000 days and if on this day, at this time and place, you felt a little wonder, a little magic...i would not ruin that for you, there is so much magic in this world...

    That's deep SK. I like that it gets me thinking.

    My friend had a problem with people always wanting encores too. He changed his opening or introduction to the trick and it seemed to help.

    His favorite open for the trick was "do you believe in magic?" this way if they ask how he did it he could just say "Magic" and grin.

    A great neg for this is "small/simple thing entertain simple/small minds"

    u must NEVER reveal ur trick... ur audience will immediately downgrade ur value.

    respond by
    1. telling a funny story
    2. doing a group game
    3. excusing urself

    u know the deal... NEVER reveal.!

    You could combine a retort with a neg by asking "[Don't you know/Have you never been told] magicians never reveal their secrets?" (As if it was common knowledge)
    Or, "Didn't you catch it the first time?" and change topic, optional Roll Off.

    SK's post is mad suave. Adding a flair of poetry and trivia can make you seem like a person of many talents (dhv).
    I really like the "Once is magic, twice is education" line.

    If you wanted to put your target into a state of confusion (which can be useful), you can say with a straight face "I didn't" and move into a topic change.
    you are a soul playing a game of human
    might as well unlock all the secret areas
