How to Escape: Press Play
# 1 Most Unconventional Way on How to Escape
Ready for a shocker? Make friends. Yes, you read that right. The # 1 most unconventional way on how to escape is by making friends with your captors. This is actually a real military tactic.
To expound, this means that you need to get your captors to see you as a person. You can only do this if you talk to them and find something that you've got in common (even if you have to pretend) to converse about.
* Politics and religion are great topics to bring up if you can trick them into thinking that you're on the same page as they are.
How to Trick Your Captors
Furthermore, this is where psychology is going to come into play quite a bit. Why? Because you'll need to be able to pick up on what makes your captors tick.
As an example, are they egotistical? Play on their ego (but don't be obvious about it.)
Are they sick narcissists? Play vulnerable. Make them feel like you're the weakling and they've got all the power (grovel, beg, cry, pee your pants, etc.)
Do whatever it takes to build up their confidence so that when they open that cell door to beat you to pieces (because they'll get a kick out of it and they don't see you as a threat) you can take them down, steal their keys and run.
