How they persuade

How they persuade: JP Sears

How They Persuade is not your regular interview series (What? You expect regular from me? WTF is wrong with you?)


Instead, this is a unique interview style interrogation where I drill my guests with some random scenarios and they need to tell me how they will persuade the other person in that scenario.


I am so excited today I can barely sit still which, as you know it’s not very uncommon for me. 


Here’s the exciting thing: I have someone with me today who looks like JP Sears, but apparently he’s called Jonathan.


If you think that sounds weird, please watch or listen in below and you’ll see that it’s NOTHING.




JP’s biggest OMG moment

JP had been really fixated for about a year with a mindset that said, “I don’t want a relationship, “I’m so like married to my career right now “and I don’t wanna take the time for a relationship, “and it would just like take away from me,” and then holy cow, life blindsided him with a beautiful woman. Nicely played life, nicely played.


Biggest FML moment

Being 18 and enrolled in university and just knowing “this isn’t for me, there’s no way I can make it through this because I don’t want to”


Biggest WTF moment

Going from self-induced personality constipation to allowing his natural humour to show on video and…well, you’ve all seen the Ultra Spiritual videos, right?



You are lost in woods, you can only send one voice message to someone to come and save you. What do you say?

*dead pan* – “I need help, I don’t know where I’m at, I’m in the woods, please help.”


Someone that you respect, on a public forum tries to engage you in a heated religious or political debate. What do you do?

– “I hear your words, but I feel more your feelings, and I’d be curious, you have so much passion behind your words, I’m most curious, how do you feel right now?”
