Solipsistic Logic

OK, you know the drill,..stop, wait, don’t hit play just yet.

Before you think I’m being unusually cruel by posting this, try to pause a moment and observe the particulars of how Chelsea’s process works. Don’t assume I’m poking fun at all women; I’m using this as an illustration of process. She’s obviously not the sharpest tool in the drawer, and I can already hear the NAWALT echoes from the Matrix, but try to tune out the hilarity of this and understand how she constructs her reasoning here. It’s a fascinating insight into the approach average women use when calculating rational matters. I have no doubt that offended women will seek to dissociate themselves from this sort of ignorance, but I’m not focusing on ridicule here, I’m interested in the process.

From the beginning Chelsea can’t appear to have not given the topic its logical due diligence. So she’s has to prove an effort has been made on her part by offering a lengthy breakdown of how she figured it out. Watch any Sarah Palin interview and you’ll get the idea; it’s similar to having to show your work when doing a mathematical computation in school. After a lengthy analysis, “yeah, I dunno how you’d work that out.”

Next we move into the solipsistic logic that is women’s default when required to formulate a logical-sounding theory. Chelsea is kind enough to verbalize this for us; “if I run a mile in like,..9 minutes,..but when I’m really in shape, it’s like,..7 minutes,..when I’m really in shape, and that like takes me a mile. An I’m running at like 10 miles per hour, and that’s pretty fast for a human being,..”, however this is often an unspoken, subconscious process for women. As I’ve describe in past post, women’s solipsism and emotional wiring is generally the primary conduit through which problem solving and opinion formulation occurs. That’s not to say that women lack the capacity to be just as rational as men, but it is to say that this solipsistic logic is the innate filter that must be cognitively repressed when arriving at a rational solution to a problem.

To see this in action all a guy needs to do is read any manosphere comment thread to see the frequency with which women will apply their personal, anecdotal experiences to a situation and presume her experience is the global, universally applicable, reality.

Continuing,..once Chel realizes that her personal experience isn’t sufficient to adequately solve the problem she then resorts back to over-explanation of her process, only this time, with more variables added to hedge her bets for when she inevitably is proven uneducated in her assessments. This is called preemptive ego preservation. You see, at a certain point, once personalization and wordy analyzation proves fruitless in solving or misdirecting a solution, there needs to be footnotes and caveats pre-established  and readily available when the actual solution is provided. In fact a NAWALT (“not all women are like that”) retort is a prepackaged form of exactly this preemptive ego preservation.

And as you can see, when the actual verifiable solution is presented, she falls back on all of her previous methodologies at once, and includes her previous caveats in her defense in spite of the empirical evidence that disproves her “logic”.

Finally comes the accusations of error on the premises of the poser of the question,..

“you are not making sense, I make sense, you do not make sense…you don’t know the answer, you guestimate like I guestimate…”

She’s dumb as fuck, but I recognize that process. She’s not listening to the question, she only hears half of it and it’s interrumpted by some internal reference. When she finds an internal reference for part of the question, she thinks she’s got it, and she takes it from there, of course arriving at whatever irrelevant “conclusion”. So the question has to be asked once and again, and she does the same process again and again. Basically she exhausts her internal references repertoire then gets frustrated because that’s not “enough”, and since you’re putting her in that position, you must… Read more »

As has been pointed out by many others in many other instances, notice how often she uses the word “I” to communicate.

On the surface it appears as if she’s merely poking fun at and disapproving of Chel’s (original MPH girl) stupidity. But because of the education I’m receiving from this site, I’m starting to “hear past the words”, so to speak, and instead I’m “hearing” the processes and medium *behind* them. She’s every bit as solipsistic as the female she’s ostensibly put herself above by way of ridicule.

I can’t say as I agree with that. I know enough women who do have the capacity to rationalize things; my critique is that there is an innate mental process which is an obstacle to a rational process that most feel no necessity to cognitively address, and furthermore feel offended that anyone should expect them to, much less point it out to them and think them stupid.

Your suggestion to observe the video as a legitimate example of default feminine processes, rather than simply another example of comical female stupidity, was well taken by this reader. Sure, it’s funny to watch–especially when her husband pans the camera back to himself to record his reactions of gleeful disbelief. But it all becomes less and less funny as I realize that what I’m witnessing is actually (and chillingly) a splintered piece of the larger dysfunctional cultural/societal imperative. In other words, what I saw in the video was this: the very reason incarnate why females in general do not pursue… Read more »

Well, she maybe gives a shit about getting you to do what SHE wants rather than what YOU want. But in a good relationship, the girl will try to find out what YOU BOTH want.

Otherwise, she’s just a bully, and you’re an insecure, dependent fool for tolerating her bullying when all you have to do is physically leave (including cutting off all communication) and GFTOW.
