I watched the movie Donnie Darko, not that long ago. There was mention of the word Cellar Door, being the most beautiful word in the english dictionary. I began looking into this, and have started using different words on people to see how they respond to them. What words have you found that have positive, and negative effects on others?

I have noticed that people hate to hear the word blog.

I think LaVey hit on something close to this in The Satanic Witch when he was talking about names and how they're constructed by pointing out syllables, roughness or softness of names, etc.

While I haven't found specific words that I interchange with others, I like using words that seem to have less impact on a discerning listener.

This is definitely a fine subject to expand upon when in reference to dealing out lesser magic! \:D

Of course, after thinking about this, if after a while you can learn more about a certain person, you can use more emotionally charged words (or avoid using them) to evoke certain reactions.

For example, say I was wanting to charm a lady who just got out of a long-term relationship who was happy to finally be single, I would stay away from words and emotional phrases that would conjure up previous experiences such as love, marriage, etc., and instead focus more on words that celebrate independence like passion, freedom, choice, etc., and of course using other methods of lesser magic.

Of course, words are going to mean more to some people than others and some less.

"Of course, words are going to mean more to some people than others and some less."

Some words when used the right way (NLP) should have the same emotional effect no matter the person.

For example, what would Dracula say if his victim couldn't see his eyes?

Donnie Darko...Great movie.

Emotional responses to words...I often have a reaction to names. There are some names for women that literally cause me to melt. A woman to can look like a failed science experiment; but, with the right name...

That is interesting. I can see how the name is important for both the male and female animal, but I haven't experienced fascination, due to ones name alone. You must have the heart of a romantic. ;\)

Here's a conundrum of a word that seems to haunt me... friend. Has had both positive and negative effects on others.

Agreed.

It can also have a negative/positive effect on one's self.

I can count the true friends I have on one hand, but yet We hear people say the word everyday as if they have known you since birth.

Makes Me uneasy to say the least.

I think of used car salesmen when one would come up to Me after knowing Me/interacting with Me for 4 minutes and saying:

"I feel like We are best friends or:/I feel as if We have known each other for years."

No thanks. Uncomfortable and awkward.

This is not to say that I don't have 'friends' whom I have met online who I am friendly with. The word in and of it's self though is creepy to Me. ;\)

Now, as far as names go from The Satanic Witch, here are the ones I have circled long ago. (I hold the book in My hand now):

Ten to two o'clock witches:

Ava.
Devilla.
Tiberia.
Zora.
Scarlet.
Lunetta.

For women on any position on the clock?

EVE!
Iris.
Yvonne.
Betty.

Amber and Celeste are beautiful names (not that Beth isn't, but it doesn't have the same effect on me). As soon as I read your response of "Amber" it made me think about the 311 song that I like titled "Amber." Then I realized that a lot of names that I like have songs written about them that I like as well, here are the ones that come to mind quickly:

Layla - Eric Clapton
Delilah - The Plain White Ts (before it got played out)
Betty - Ram Jam & later Spider Bait
Janie - Aerosmith
Molly - Sponge
Sunny - Shawn Colvin

Most female names and a lot of male names have songs written about them, but is it really just coincidence that the songs about names that appeal to me appeal to me as well? I'm not sure if this holds true for others (especially if they're a different position on the clock), but for me, this relationship warrants more thought.

I like the word, "conundrum." Caymus makes a wine called, "Conundrum." It's a good one too.

My favorite word lately, though, is "eviscerate." It used to be, "reciprocity." Things change, you know?

I am sure I could stir up emotions in a public place with tactful mention of 'abortion', 'Hitler' and 'Iraq'. Positive? A smile with a friendly 'hello' can brighten up a person quickly, whether they are a stranger or not.
