A Study in Deduction

Hey friends! For a while now, my own personal tome The Monographs has been topping the Amazon charts with 5* reviews all round. My writing style is not conventional at all, I have always tried to keep everything as jargon free and focus on the work that matters, the important things. The detailed studies in The Monographs speak to that nature.

To get your copy of The Monographs please follow this link 

I mention this because I also give tuition via Skype. Lessons consist of everything in The Monographs but much more indepth and with new training techniques and tests to track your progress on the road to becoming a Deductionist yourself. 1 on 1 help for creating your memory palace from the ground up, reading people and catching lies and solving puzzles where’ve they lie. Check out the video below to hear what one of my skypers has to say

Recently I have also been working on taking these Skype lessons to the street! You heard me! Live training from the comfort of your own living room!…or wherever it is you use Skype. So after a time of developing your skills, you will be put to the test in all manner of genuine locations, to be able to deduce all manner of tasks from the smallest item carried in someone’s hands to possible suspects in a robbery. 

So if beginning your quest to unleash the Sherlockian within you is something you’d like to do, or if you’d just like to improve your memory skills then email me or private message me and we can start your course today.

Just deduce it team!


Thoughts of the day : Popular deductions within today’s society

Evening all!

With The Monographs just around the corner, I thought I would throw some interesting tidbits your way on what some consider ‘Gold’ when deducing. How would you go about deducing someone’s job. How would you know details about someone’s vocation, without having to ask them? To get the full work on this, follow this link 😉

For now, here a few ideas to get you started that are in essence, quite simple. The knowledge database you have stored away in your own Palace needs to be vast. For the simple fact that you can’t get to answer if you don’t have the information to utilize. So, get to know as many jobs as you can and more importantly what some of their attributes are. For example:

  • Indoor workers will have very little, if any coarse and worn skin.
  • Builders do very little paperwork
  • Teachers gravitate toward the cheaper end of smart wear.
  • Students carry backpacks and satchels, whereas the more business minded job requires a more formal carrying device.

The lists really do go on and on.

main-qimg-87863dd8c10295abcc7e1b97d93011bcLogos and emblems can be and incredibly handy helper when out working these techniques in the trenches. Knowing the difference between the Personal trainers and the salesmen, the care workers and the driving instructors. This can be more than enough information to get you well on your way to success and is an idea that is so very often overlooked. I can’t tell you the amount of people i have spoken to/taught the deductive arts to over the years who simply just don’t think about something this simple. Even some of the logos of jobs that aren’t even for companies in your country. There is a very simple way to practice this, and in todays world it is quite simple. There are hundreds of logo apps and quizzes available on almost every device on the market. Search them out and practice.

These are transferable traits and ideas to all manner of deduction. Attributes, and tells as it were, can be found in anything. Look at the photo above.

  • None smokers will have no discernible tobacco aroma, no paraphernalia clogging up their pockets, no need for consistent breaks at work, healthy skin (thats if they aren’t a drinker), No visible tobacco stains on the finger tips and on the clothes.

Everything has a trait and everything has a tell, the small details are what is key! Now much in the same way that body language becomes more reliable when you observe a cluster of tells pertaining to the same thought, this same is true of the objects and in this instance, figuring out what someone does for a living.

Have fun practicing team!
