Nonsense in Mentalisim

In recent times it seems a fair amount of mentalists talk about effects using so called N L P techniques . I understand when this is done as an possible explanation to a baffled spectator as it deflects from the real methodology involved but do any mentalists seriously talke this pseudoscientific nonsense seriously?

I consider NLP to be an abbreviation for Not a Lot of Plausibility. I did see one of the founders wandering around a psychic fair once. I don't know if it was Bandler or Grinder. He had a pony tail haircut and that put me off him right away. Besides I did hear that one of them was charged with murdering someone or other but managed to get acquitted. I am not sure if it was the one with the pony tail or not.

Whose confirmation bias are you seeking to flatter?

Bandler was the one accused of murder and he was also a former coke head , the unfortunately named Grinder is the one who sports a ponytail :D
