Well, you can. You can appropriate the winning behaviors of anyone, living or dead, real or imagined.
In the 60s the Soviet Union was deeply invested in psychic powers, esp, mind control, telepathy, radionics, and hypnosis.
Soviet research in hypnosis was ground breaking, innovative and potent. From this rich, fecund period was developed a system of hypnosis that could potentially revolutionize life for all of us.
Deep Trance Identification is a system of hypnosis that is unusually effective and vast in its implications. In a nutshell a person put in deep trance could appropriate a new desired behavior, skill or talent in relatively short time by merging with a model who had demonstrated those same behaviors at a mastery level.
A curator of an art museum desired to have artistic ability.
He picked an artist who's style he had always admired and had studied intensely for years.
After a short of period of DT sessions he found himself drawing desirable images, far better that he had previously.
In due time he was painting. Eventually he had an art show of his, his work very similar to that of his model.
An alcoholic deep tranced using a person he regarded a model of sobriety. In several months he was sober.
Athletes have increased scores. and levels of ability using DT.
NLP Master Teacher John LaValle DT a surgeon and under medical supervision performed a minor surgery successfully with no medical background.
Some SS students were deep trancing with James Bond to become more alpha and aggressive with females. It worked.

The applications and implications of DTI are limitless. I will probably post more on this topic, but you can learn more if you google "lee Pulos" "Deep Trance Identification"
If you were privy to this technique, who would you deep trance with and what abilities would you download into yourself?
A caveat here is needed. If you can put yourself into a deep trance and have some understanding of what I'm talking about, DO not download the whole personality into yourself, only the desired behaviors.
