Jordan Harbinger is back!
In my first podcast episode with Jordan we talked about:
-What kind of body language mistakes that fit people with nice bodies make which hold them back socially…
-How to reprogram your brain to actually like and appreciate things like kale smoothies and ginger juice…
-A simple eye trick to get you to “fake it until you make it” with extreme social confidence…
-Why bars and clubs are not necessarily the places to go to to enhance your social intelligence and ability to build relationships…
-How I went from eating fast food, being ultra-shy and reading fantasy novels to being named as one of the world's top 100 most influential people in health and fitness…
Jordan has always had an affinity for Social Influence, Interpersonal Dynamics and Social Engineering, helping private companies test the security of their communications systems and working with law enforcement agencies before he was even old enough to drive.
He has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war-zones and been kidnapped -twice. He’ll tell you – the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of), just about any type of situation.
On his podcast, he gets deep into the untapped wisdom of the world's top performers — from legendary musicians to intelligence operatives, iconoclastic writers to visionary change-makers, deconstructing the playbooks of the most successful people on earth.
Among the many things Jordan and I discussed here in Round 2:
-Various drug-related topics…2:42
- Hefty CBD doses enhance deep sleep

- Jordan called out a former spy because of his NV communication
- Codified a system of personality archetypes geared toward high performers
- Why do Athletes and high achievers come across as intimidating?

- The more we look at someone and think they're relatable to us, the more any change in them makes us more uncomfortable or resentful
- Rather than congratulate them, people find excuses why achievers are snobby, arrogant, etc.
- People don't like their shortcomings highlighted
-Non-verbal communication techniques Jordan teaches to be better received if you're an athlete or high achiever…43:40

Dota 2 suits are played inside the pleasant of 1, nice of 3, and fine of 5 (competition finals) codecs. Interestingly, a guess on the victory of one of the groups is not continually the first-class decision. If you’re making a pre-in shape guess, then further to the crew ability stage and score, it’s far really worth thinking about their recreation fashion, the suit layout, motivation, and the match prize. The latter component can affect both the bodily and moral additives of the group. If the match is administered in the first-rate of the only layout, we advocate which you do now not make a pre-match wager. Such a layout always includes wonder. Anything can happen, or even a sport guru cannot are expecting the result.
For a number of years, I was taking Modafinil during high school and college to help with my mild degree of narcolepsy. Now that I am on a much more consistent and healthier sleep schedule I no longer take it and have a very strong grasp on managing my fatigue. I feel that despite having a good grasp on my health ( good diet, exercise, sleep schedule, etc.) it still has really impacted my ability to gain pleasure out of things I once thoroughly enjoyed.
What recommendations would you have to raise acetylcholine or dopamine levels? Supplements, food, etc.
Tried the Ultimate Coffee Mix. Hyper focused and aware. It will take a little getting used to operating at that level. Thanks Ben.
I keep hearing these people, like Ben Greenfield, Tim Ferris and others on podcasts talk so leisurely about how they microdose (or more) psilocybin. But when I look into how to get some, I see all the warnings about how it’s a Class A (or1?) drug with stiff penalties if caught with it.
I am in California and would like to try this, but I don’t know any dealers, and I certainly can’t get it legally that I know of. So, what is a guy to do? I would go mushroom hunting in the woods after a rain, but I’ve read enough warnings on look-alike killer mushrooms to not trust doing that. I could get a grow kit and spores, but that’s illegal in California.
And how do these podcasters, and so many tech people in Silicon Valley do this, while they talk so openly about it? I just don’t get it. What am I missing?
I’d like the answer to this question as well. Good question!
Doesn’t look like we’re going to get the answer.
I'd recommend listening to this podcast: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/mckenna …. Here's a link to the growing guide mentioned: https://goo.gl/hJ5Evy
Thank you, Ben. I’ll listen to the podcast. I don’t think I’m allowed to legally get spores in California, but I’m sure there must be a way.
Hi Mr. Greenfield,
By any chance do you know a functional medicine practicioner in San Diego that you would highly recommend? I went to functionalmedicine.org but there are quite a few practicioners on that website.
Thank you for your help and Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to you and your family, Ben!
I love the subject of non-verbal communication; Jordan was an awesome guest and I’m going to look into more of his work.
Have you read or heard about Joe Navarro’s books, specifically “What Every Body is Saying”, and “Louder Than Words” ? He covers the subject of nonverbal communication from his background as an FBI agent, but also as a Cuban immigrant and learning how to communicate with others, though did not speak the native language.
Admittedly, I’m not the most socially adept, but his books have really given me an entirely new lens in which I view the world.
Where can you buy the psilocybin and how much do you exactly put into the drink that you make?
Interesting podcast Ben. Are you buying your psilocybin pre micro doses or are you processing it yourself? If di, how ?
Great episode but the title was a bit of a tease. Maybe in another episode you could elaborate on CBD and THC for sleep.
I agree! Definitely need more info on CBD & THC for sleep!
