Episode 202 – Henrik Fexeus psychological manipulator, mental illusionist and conveyor of knowledge of the unconscious
Henrik Fexeus has always had a fascination with magic from a very young age. By his teens, Henrik had also realized that magic is really a form of unconscious influence. What most of us would call an attempt to control other people’s beliefs and actions. He has studied communication techniques and mental skills that are drawn from a number of different fields. Fexeus has drawn from classical psychology to hypnosis, as he analyzed the use of influence in media, advertising, propaganda and memetics.
A Kind of Influence
He has written seven books on practical psychology and influence. His first book, The art of reading minds, was released in 2007. Henrik has written twelve books, that have sold more than 1.2 million copies, and have been translated into 35 languages world wide. The first edition of his book The power game had a picture of Henrik with devil horns on its cover. This image allegedly offended people outside Sweden. So the picture was later changed to Henrik sporting a halo and angel wings. Fexeus' later made his debut as a fiction writer, with the urban fantasy thriller The Lost: The Last Illusion Book One in 2017.
Henrik's television appearances have often dealt with the same psychological topics as his books. He has also appeared in both his own programs and other previously established program formats. Between 2007-2009 Fexeus both wrote and performed the 16 episode TV special Mind Storm, which later aired on Swedish Television. He also excels on stage, whether it be in the role of a lecturer or that of a mentalist. Enjoy this fascinating video interview with the legendary Henrik Fexeus!
