However, if you're not then you might find Subliminal Message Pro an interesting application. Subliminal Message Pro allows you to write and display messages to display at frequent intervals on your Mac. Messages can only be up to 80 characters in length and are displayed in the middle of your display. You have a bit of control over random horizontal and vertical offsets, random backwards display, the on-screen time, the period between flashes, the font size, font color, bold on/off, and font darkness etc.
You can make a list of messages and display them randomly according to which ones you've checked and you can write them in a variety of languages including Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Greek, Korean, Cirillic, Hebrew, Russian, Afrikaans and Polish, etc.
It's a bit annoying that messages are limited in size although the idea of subliminal messages is that they are short and snappy. The effectiveness of this program can only be proved or disproved over prolonged use though and it depends on your psyche.
Subliminal Message Pro is an interesting application and if it can help you think more positively or achieve a goal, then who am I to knock it. Otherwise, you'll just find the flashing messages annoying.
- Version 1.5.0 added option to display, at random, messages backwards.
