WHO IS HENRIK FEXEUS?
Mentalist. Master of manipulation. Psychological illusionist. Writer. Lecturer. TV personality. The voice of Chad Brentley in The Incredibles 2. He’s been called all sorts of things. But who is he really?
Henrik Fexeus was born into an unsuspecting world in 1971. Around the time he began primary school, his interest in magic began. This would come to make his years of school a real trial, although not so much for Henrik himself as for the other kids.
In his teens, Henrik realized that magic is really a form of unconscious influence, an attempt to control other people’s beliefs and actions. To this day, he’s still amazed that nobody told him how useful that knowledge would be for meeting girls.
He maintained his interest in the ways that people influence each other. Henrik has studied communication techniques and mental skills drawn from a number of different fields, from classical psychology to hypnosis, and has analyzed the use of influence in media, advertising, propaganda and memetics.
“Henrik has been told that his powers are dangerous, but he denies that absolutely.“
Today, he is Sweden’s most famous psychological manipulator, mental illusionist and conveyor of knowledge of unconscious communication and influence. Henrik has written twelve books, that have sold more than 1.2 million copies, and have been translated into 35 languages world wide. His books on communication are used to train everyone from international corporate leaders to therapists all over the world.
Henrik also excels on stage, whether it be in the role of lecturer or of mentalist. His own distinct brand of chicanery and genuine psychological techniques makes him a unique entertainer with sell out shows. He is also regularly seen on tv, both in his own programmes and as an expert guest in other productions. He has been given six international and national awards for his performances.
Henrik has been told that his powers are dangerous, but he denies that absolutely. Instead, he describes himself as a nice, easy-going guy who likes people.
Especially people who do what he wants.
