When in a mentalist state, it’s necessary to constantly re-evaluate whether you’ve made the right decisions. To do this, you use a concept called ‘cognitive load.’ A mentalist has to review your actions during the day with you (whether they’re beneficial or detrimental) in order to determine whether you’ve made the right choices. Cognitive loads are determined by your brain, and they’re influenced by a variety of factors such as your life experience, experiences in the past, the state of mind you find yourself in, and many other factors. As the weight of your life forces some decisions to be made, the cognitive load will grow larger.
You’ll do things that you wouldn’t normally, or at least wouldn’t expect to, do as part of your mentalist state. This does come with the benefit of having a strong understanding of the decision-making process, and its ramifications.
But you don’t have to focus on your decisions if you don’t want to! When I first started doing this, there was a period where I was literally in a mentalist state. This was mostly because my mind kept on drifting between mentalist states and the day-to-day reality was often very difficult at times. I don’t know what I would have done if the decision had been made differently… It’s also possible that I was simply doing what was natural for me at that time.
The biggest drawback of mentalist states is that things that used to seem so easy seem harder when you’re in a mentalist state!
You might notice, however, that you’ll occasionally make a decision on a certain subject that you would have made otherwise. This is something you can get used to.
So if you’ve experienced the negative effects of mentalist states, you might be wondering how do we get out of them? Well, there are a variety of things you can do to minimize the intensity of mentalist states and to become more productive.
The first thing to do is to re-evaluate where you are in life and what decisions you are making. Do you know what you are trying to achieve? A good idea is to use this as a tool to identify what has been holding you back in life. Perhaps you are stuck in a job that you hate or you’ve run out of friends. Perhaps you’ve been avoiding a relationship and feel that it’s the only one that will work for you.
If you’ve felt as if there were a limit to the
