Powerful Words [List] 58 Trance Words for Emotions & Action

Do you want to capture people’s attention in your speech or texts, for your communication or, for example, your marketing? Do you want to arouse emotions and action in people? Then use the powerful trance words of this article.

What Are Powerful Trance Words aka ‘Hot Words’?

‘Hot Words’, or ‘Trance Words’, can have a lot of effect on their own. For example, you may have to automatically turn inward when you are faced with these words. You then notice what happens to you after hearing these words. So use trance words if you want to make a certain impact. Action words are another great example of Hot Words. They can put pressure on people.

Words that arouse certain emotions are also hot words, because trance takes place when the emotion changes. Let’s take an example from English. For example, ‘baby’ has a much greater emotional charge than ‘infant’. If, on the other hand, you say “The baby got hurt”, it does a lot more to the listener than “The infant got hurt”. In the same way, think about which synonym you use to convey certain messages.

When not to use Trance Words

Use clinical, neutral words in a context where you want to be neutral, such as when communicating bad news. In your marketing you do want to use the powerful power words.
