There are simple tricks that everyone can do

It often happens that our dreams come true for other people. In science, this phenomenon is called the Schellenberg effect. The name comes from a German military officer of the Second World War, SS Brigadier Walter Schellenberg, who had dreams come true that were realized by the people around him. In fact, there is no witchcraft or magic involved, but rather simple tricks that are available to everyone.

Psychologists have found that the Schellenberg effect can be avoided. PSY PRACTICE writes about how this can be done.

Walter Schellenberg was an intelligence officer

In his time, Schellenberg often passed off other people's ideas as his own, and thus rapidly advanced his career. He did it very simply: while listening to the interlocutor, he would pretend to have missed his statements, and then pass off other people's ideas as his own.

Yulian Semenov, author of 17 Moments of Spring, described the German intelligence officer.

"He [Stirlitz] knew that Schellenberg, a born intelligence officer, a professional, forgets details, never loses the main, nodal points of any conversation-even with his gardener. Schellenberg was an equal opponent, and in matters of strategy it was very difficult, if not impossible, to get around him, but Stirlitz noticed an interesting detail when looking at him: At first, Schellenberg did not seem to notice interesting suggestions from his staff, shifting the conversation to another topic, and only after days, weeks, or even months, adding his own understanding of the problem to the proposal, he would put forward the same idea, but now as his own, He gave even a momentary proposal such brilliance, he so accurately linked the topic to the general complex of issues facing the Reich that no one suspected him of plagiarism," the work says.

Psychologists say that such people have an increased need for attention, often deeply traumatized in childhood by the lack of love, acceptance and support from their loved ones. That is, their personal ideas were devalued, so they began to steal them from others. In this regard, it is better not to share your innermost dreams and plans with people who do not have their own interests, beliefs, and life position. They are prone to unhealthy imitation.

In addition, you should not hesitate to claim copyright to your own thoughts and work, and it is better to practice self-confidence. It is important to be able to say no and step aside if communication becomes uncomfortable.

And if your idea has already been stolen, just be happy, because no one will steal the bad. But still, make sure that this does not happen, because narcissists and abusers are egomaniacs who raise their self-esteem by humiliating and devaluing others. They can destroy someone else's personality and faith in themselves.

As OBOZREVATEL reported, the law of attraction can also help in fulfilling your plans. This is a philosophy based on positive thinking, claiming that it brings the desired changes in life.The spiritual practice was described back in 2006 in the movie The Secret and the book of the same name.
