Attitude Sells

attitude_sells

There are many attitudinal and subtle behavior traits that manifest in men who are presented with options or enjoy even casual social proof. I’m not sure a lot of guys really realize just how sensitive women are to those ‘tells’. You will do things, say things, without thinking about them that indicate on a limbic level what you believe about yourself. Women have evolved to perceive the smallest cues and subtlest of hints – to the point it’s a subconscious subroutine running in their background processing of information about you when they’re not even cognitively aware of it.

They may not be able to consciously put a finger on it, but on some level of consciousness these tells are informing a woman’s limbic understanding of your SMV.

I’ve gone back and forth about covert communications vs. overt communications on this blog over the years. There is a certain school of Game that teaches a bold, direct action wherein a guy overtly inserts himself into that woman’s immediate experience and I can certainly see the merits of it.

Law 28
Enter into action with boldness

If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Your doubts and hesitations will infect your execution. Timidity is dangerous: better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity. Everyone admires the bold; no one honors the timid.

There is a certain gravitas that accompanies an extroverted approach with women, the trick is not coming off as a ‘try hard’ and overplaying it, thereby overtly confirming your following a script. When you don’t believe it’s you it’s a pretty good bet she doesn’t either.

A lot of proponents of this in-your-face approach will tell you it’s the only way a “real” man should interact with women; boldly and confidently, and entirely on his terms. And while I agree with this, how you go about effecting that can vary depending on context and condition.

When a guy is initially establishing Frame and drawing the woman (women) of his choosing into his reality, that overt, direct approach can be the deciding factor for a woman’s acquiescing to his Frame. Caught up in the moment (such as an ‘insta-date’ or an encounter she wasn’t expecting) and charging her with an immediate rush of endorphins, a woman’s Hypergamous filtering process gets overridden by that excitement. This is the same principle operating behind planning dates with an excitement factor involved (rock climbing, sky diving, are both exaggerations, but you get the idea) – an emotional attachment paired with an endorphin rush associates that ‘feeling’ with you.

There’s a tendency I think for Red Pill aware men to view women’s Hypergamous / Solipsistic natures as hinderances to men effecting their own interests with them. Shit tests, filtering, sexual prospect comparison and a whole host of other conscious and subconscious vetting inherent to women seems like an insufferable waste of effort for men. However, while Hypergamy may define the rules of the game it’s important for men to understand how to work it to their advantage in both a direct approach and in understanding the subtle filtering that women do.

I’ve read more than a few ‘dating gurus’ define this “being direct with her” approach as the only legitimate form of Game. A Real Man® sees what he wants and goes out and boldly gets it. The problem is that this attitude gets tied to The Male Catch 22 and any derivation is compared with unmanliness.

As I said, while I agree there’s merit to this directness, it shouldn’t be done at the cost of understanding how women subconsciously vet and filter to better discern a man’s (perceptively) true sexual market value to her – as well as how she contrasts his SMV to her self-perceived SMV. There is nothing “unmanly” about having a curiosity for how the female mind works and then using that understanding to your advantage.

Maintaining Frame

It’s one thing to draw that woman into your reality and your psychological Frame, it’s another to maintain this Frame once she’s stepped into it.

I went into some of the subtle ‘tells’ about a man’s SMV in Alpha Tells and Beta Tells and the subcommunication messaging that transfers between men and women. In these posts I described the process beneath those tells and what’s being communicated in them. One thing I believe even Red Pill aware men subscribe to is the idea that their Frame can only be maintained by the same overt and bluntly direct means that helped them create it.

This is the root of men’s initial anxiety of having to upkeep their Red Pill “act”; “Red Pill is impossible to float all the time! What? Am I expected to Game my LTR forever?” The answer of course is internalizing Red Pill awareness into one’s personality, but one thing that also goes along with that is the manifesting of behaviors that help maintain your Frame.

Women pick up on behavioral cues, attitude, how things affect you, how you apply yourself to a task, how you deal with adversity and certainly the interplay you engage in with her while playing with her. If you’re thinking that women wanting men who Just Get It is all direct Game and all above board you need to reconsider that quite a bit of women’s filtering occurs when you’re not ‘on‘ and she’s casually picking up on your behavioral cues.

She want’s you to ‘get it’ on your own, without having to be told how. That initiative and the experience needed to have had developed it makes you a Man worth competing for. Women despise a man who needs to be told to be dominant. Overtly relating this to a guy entirely defeats his credibility as a genuinely dominant male. The guy she wants to fuck is dominant because that’s ‘the way he is’ instead of who she had to tell him to be.

Observing the process will change it. This is the root function of every shit test ever devised by a woman. If masculinity has to be explained to a man, he’s not the man for her.

Much of a woman’s vetting process takes place in her hindbrain. It’s very easy for most guys in western(ized) culture to presume that hot, but vapid, women are too oblivious to really pay much attention to this process. Lost in their hedonism and self-affirmations it’s easy to believe that those processes aren’t as influential in hook-ups as they might be in a long term arrangement, but trust that even though they might be under the surface they are being processed.

Mindset

It’s a Tomassi Maxim now, but bears repeating; Alpha is a mindset, not a demographic. I’ve explained what I mean by this on many occasions, but when it comes to what I consider the abstraction that is Alpha it can primarily be reduced to a particular mindset of masculine dominance and confidence.

I wont belabor this here again, but suffice to say that while I believe there is a natural component to it, I do think that to varying degrees this Alpha mindset, or something approaching it, is a learnable state for men. That said, I also think men need to use caution when when evaluating how to go about cultivating and internalizing this mindset.

It’s very easy to get caught up in the hope for a magic solution to your problems in life. There’s no shortage of motivational speakers and charismatic ‘self-help’ gurus ready to sell you a book, or a sermon, or some self-styled social movement promising to show you how to develop this “winners’ mindset”. It’s important to bear in mind that any mindset you learn is only as legitimate as the realities that inform it.

A lot of hate directed at PUAs, motivational speakers, pastors or even your parents can be traced back to their failings in understanding simple evidential realities. Their hopeful formulas for your success end up being frustrations and anxieties when they’ve proven to fail you because you invest yourself in part, or in whole, in them.

Much of what constitutes Blue Pill conditioning is founded in the same misgivings. It’s very easy to hype up and sensationalize Blue Pill idealisms in ‘optimism’ soaked rhetorics, but these hopes are easily dispelled with a Red Pill aware lens. That’s one reason the Red Pill can be bitter – it’s a real buzz kill when you’re high on Blue Pill optimism.

The primary reason I’ve always been reluctant to be prescriptive with Red Pill awareness in practice is because I’ve always believed that the Red Pill is never going to be one size fits all. While Red Pill truths are universal, their application is subjective to the man employing them. How he develops the mindset that best serves him is contextual to his own circumstance.

That said, I think a pragmatic approach based on Red Pill awareness and the fundaments that make it up would serve men best in developing a Red Pill mindset that works for him. You might think that in light of my recent Purple Pill post that I’m alluding to the ‘coaches’ and re-definers of the Red Pill in all this, but lots of “Red Pill” men are actually Purple Pill hoping that some of the old rules might still apply.

While I emphatically recognize the power of positive thought in altering one’s mindset and changing the course of one’s life, I also understand that zeal for change needs to be tempered with a healthy skepticism. If you find yourself being swept up in a tide of super-optimism that’s the time to question the foundations of it. Positive, motivational memes can become clichéd aphorisms when those foundations are proven to be false.

@ babbler_g, who hasn’t read his Richard III

Religion is often used as an excuse for political repression. And religious prelates sometimes pressure political powers to persecute members of other denominations. So what? It’s still primarily about politics. There is no mandate in Christianity to do these things, unlike Islam.

Also, if you desexualize (implying or noticing that the woman is sexualizing) and she giggles, then you have passed a beta shit test. If her sexualization is covert and strong (something like dancing close and pressing her boob against your chest while you’re dancing), then she sees you as being sexually attractive. A woman who is sexually attracted to a man will seek physical contact with him as long as her ASD isn’t active.

This is silly. Abortion was outlawed for many years. There were no vagina police.

@ Simon

The biggest problem with outlawing abortion is that it’s making a special case out of something that ought not to be a special case. Just treat the killing of infants like any other murder.

I said that IF SOMEONE were 5-5 then it would be pretty much impossible. “I’m a greater beta and lesser alpha, always striving. Don’t mind not being an uber Alpha.” I’m in the same boat … greater beta/less alpha … I suspect that most of us here are. That is one of the reasons its so frustrating for me.

@Rollo – re: alpha and context. What you are really saying is that “alpha” is a social status convoked on a person by others and that in any social setting, context is decisive. It’s also true that trying to categorize men as either alpha or beta is quite limiting as the concept barely applies to even wolves and falls apart when looked at too closely wrt humans. Just consider YaReally’s commentary. Is he a top alpha guy? No, he just has learned how to demonstrate high value in ways that tickle the hindbrain of women to see him as a… Read more »

@M. Simon -You need to read The Biology of Desire as your ideas about addiction are a good starting point, but very limited.

Given your interest in neuroscience and behavior I think you’d love the book and I’m eager to hear your thoughts on it.

For example, ASD ignored my dozens of cites of Christian wars and violence after I took the time to collect them for him

Lol, the point was whether Christianity taught that Christians were supposed to wage war; it was a counterpoint to Islam which in fact does teach that muslims are supposed to wage war. Islam calls it “jihad”. So you either you didn’t understand the conversational issues or you tried to divert the convo as a sleazy debate tactic.

If you’re so smart, with all your verbal intel and shit, why can’t you follow the conversational thread?

I’d say an addictive personality is a personality that becomes more easily fixated on (substances, behavior patterns, whatnot) than the average person.
It could be a good addiction (example: exercise) or a bad one (examples: alcohol, smokes, wasting time on the internet, ect).

Re: addictive drugs

http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/heroin/what-are-long-term-effects-heroin-use

I’ve known quite a few heroin addicts and opiates are very addictive dependent on strength and term of usage.

I have deteriorating/degenerative disc issues with my back and my doc was concerned about the length of time I was using opiate pain meds.

Long term usage of opiates especially can alter the perception of pain. Sometimes, even after the cause of pain has been healed, the perception of continued pain can/will remain, causing dependence.

@M Simon There are no addictive personalities. There are no addictive drugs. There is only pain and pain relief. While that does show a feedback mechanism that leads to addictive behavior, such behavior can be sustained after the removal of pain through the formation of the habit. Addictions are habits that are pathological. It is healthy to seek relief from pain. It is unhealthy to continue the pain reliever after the pain is gone yet some people do so out of habit. This is what’s generally viewed as “addiction” in my experience. It’s a pathological habit, and it doesn’t just… Read more »

A bit of an off topic question, but when a girl gets drunk does this turn her hypergamy filters ‘off’ as girls are more approachable and easy to fuck even for lower value men when they are drunk. And doesn’t this put them at risk if they do choose to go out and drink.. Why would they do it as opposed to going out and being in control.

CAUTION in 2015 re: fucking drunk chicks.

The FI is rapidly gaining traction in defining sex with a drunk chick as rape. Their next day regrets are swiftly becoming legally actionable. just because she downed a pint of Jack and proceeded to rim you does not guarantee that you will not require legal counsel.
