Misdirection is what stage magicians do in many of their tricks. The best example is to tell their audience to look at an object in one hand or an action they are making with that hand, while they actually perform a separate and hidden action at the same time with their other hand. Some Tools contain Misdirection in order to work. As the Misdirection is performed, the primary actions are explained but other hidden actions are not explained. The slave is only told about the actions the Trainer wants them to know in order to create results in a way the slave is unaware of by the Trainer performing some other action that is concealed from the slave. In other words, the results occur almost as if by magic.
The key to Misdirection is to Focus the slave’s attention where you want it. Exactly how that is done depends on what effect the you wish to achieve while the slave is focused elsewhere. The focus point should always be real and truthful. However, it is not always complete nor is it the main action being performed by the Trainer. Misdirection can also mean hiding something important in a group of less important items like in a list of duties or protocols. After the first few items on the list, the rest of the list blurs and the longer the list, the less attention is usually paid to all the items on the list, thereby allowing the Trainer to slip in something important that the slave may not wish to do or that may result in a behavior the Trainer desires.
