Speaking of mindset, one of the problems I would criticize the back and forth comments from @The Man is that I’m seeing a fixed mindset in The Man and it is not red pill or game centered. Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck Dweck: “In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. “In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be… Read more »

“I mean having to deal with another person’s motivations, focus, desires and the like. I say “drama” instead of just “time”, because though dealing with this dynamic entails the consumption of one’s time, it also entails the consumption of one’s cognitive/emotional resources, by way of having to actually consider someone else’s motivations, focus, and desires that are not all going to magically align with yours.”

@theman

That doesn’t sound red pill to me at all. That sounds like pedestalization and social conditioning. You can have whatever kind of relationship you want with women.

Yes Andy – of course I grasp what you are saying (as so much of the discourse here over the last 8 or 9 months has been about how I am wrong about certain convictions I have). So what I left unsaid wrt my above comment to you is that the reason I see that redpill does not actually offer any escape from this dynamic of having one’s cognitive/emotional resources to be called upon, in either a less limited way of a more limited way, within sexual partnering, depending upon the depth of the relationship, – is partly a personal… Read more »

SJF – on the Dwerk fixed/growth mindset dynamic – as applied to your perception of my psychology: To my way of thinking it is growth mindset from birth to death, however the beauty of it is that each of us, though very similar in basic human “design”, are just different enough wrt strengths and weaknesses, some of which may be innate and some of which may be shaped by circumstance, and furthermore, we are also just different enough wrt the pragmatic conditions we find ourselves in by way of the circumstances of our surroundings, ……. and the fact that we… Read more »

@john q shaft June 29th, 2016 at 8:28 am The psychology behind the Taylor Swift lyrics for Wild At Heart are that women evolutionarily want the alpha genes. And they know that after they get the alpha male, the next step in manipulation of that male is to tame him and betatize him. And when they accomplish betatization, they are left with: boredom. Taylor Swift knows this instinctively, so she puts her Alpha out of reach and unobtainable. That way she doesn’t lose her lust for him. Compare to the female artist’s song song lyrics “In Sleep” by Lissie. “I… Read more »

@SJF – that Carol Dweck book is on my Kindle, but it’s way down my reading list.

Recommendations if you like that genre/subject area (like The Talent Code and Outliers, and so on): Bounce by Matthew Syed (who was an international table tennis player) and more recently The Gold Mine Effect by Rasmus Ankersen – all in the same sort of area about practice, performance, training, natural talent and how it intersects, how to develop skill etc.

SJF – you know the funny thing about Taylor Swift and Katy Perry and the like – much of the material is written by some heavy-hitter Swedish and Norwegian music producers (who are actually the ones probably more-so shaping the cultural memes around this catchy drivel). But it sells – and that’s the point I guess. Feedback loops man – sometimes these feedback loops are perverse for no other reason than it pays by way of dinero.

no i don’t agree with that.

mastery of the game is THE FIRST, NECESSARY STEP to becoming a full-fledged man.

makes it hard for me to believe you can slay hot chicks at will.

are you not familiar with how that makes you feel as a man?

a guy who is fucking multiple hot women has an almost tangible aura about them.

it lifts you up to a higher plane of your personal existence as a man. you start reaching further and further.

getting women is primarily about self-belief. and with self-belief, you reach out and make that stuff concrete.

What most people leave out in the study of tensegrity is the islands of compression. Compression and tension have to balance if you want stability.

– I am not giving anybody any advice on pua nor is that my intention – so that is not my perspective

– there is another layer of reality below what you are perceiving, wrt the man/woman thing. I am speaking about that. It is pertinent nevertheless.

So I treat women respectfully, but with dislike because they are bitchy or skanks. Women hate that. They’d much rather be liked than respected. So I misapply the Golden Rule. Women aren’t like men in many ways. Your application of the Golden Rule is faulty. You have to apply the… Read more »

From The Black Flag by Shark TL;DR……External game and internal game are but two sides of the same coin. The holy grail of both journeys is identical. This does not contradict what YaReally and Rollo just stated because of the existence of a feedback loop: The resources that great external game gives a man strengthens the internal game. Naturals don’t always need to start with external game (because, well, they have it naturally), but non-naturals get a tremendous resource from great external game and that allows great internal game. This is what Julien was explaining in his Ten Game Livestream… Read more »

Hey look at that, you’re finally learning! I agree, the act of thinking “I am confident enough to wear something that will draw attention to me and don’t fear the attention, the social pressure of people paying attention to me and judging me” and inviting that social pressure/attention/judgement from others on yourself IS an attractive subcomm.

Weird how The Bachelorette even HAS guys get disqualified. Let alone hordes of girls all liking/hating specific guys on the show across the board.

I mean, why would they all like or dislike specific guys, why would the Bachelorette bother choosing between any of them with any conviction?

Only recently go out of that situation, but still often feel like just keeping my head above water So it wasn’t just triggered by a bad night out — think people may have misunderstood that — its an ongoing thing now for going on… Read more »

@sentient hat “looks don’t matter in an of themselves” i.e. would solely get bang… that is NOT the i.e. that is NOT the “in other words.” that is something TOTALLY DIFFERENT (the idea that looks alone get the bang). here is what I am saying —> there is nothing FIXED about any particular LOOK that is 100% attractive at all times and totally untethered to norms. of course the REASON why looks ALONE do NOT get the bang is PRECISELY because of what we are saying….over time, negative norms can become associated with someone’s look he has a whole closet… Read more »

Look guys – female attraction for the masculine – we all know it’s all about the confidence – right?. It’s whatever signals confidence. There are a million tells. Looks can be a tell (until it isn’t) etc. etc. etc. Subcomm can be a better tell (until you happen to fuck that up) etc. etc. etc.

This is just so fucking obvious. Except the women can’t explain it to you cause they don’t know how to explain it.

@culum @yareally @habd was a diner place. saw girl there, so opened. just short chat, wasn’t really sure what to say. interesting thing was i opened on wrong body language for a change. was facing her full on, as opposed to normally when I approach her from an angle and talk over my shoulder a bit. of course, almost as soon as I opened her, she took a step back. I steped forward as well, not getting any closer, just keeping the same distance. seemed like the right thing to do — had the cnvo gone on a bit longer,… Read more »

huh. just realized that I can make up where I work, but intentially pick a specific job to lead into sexualizing.

like I just made up the bar bit on the fly, don’t work at one, but that just occurred to me I could plan that out more in advance.

a more neutral one anyway. i’ve got the male stripper bit, but that is a bit much to bring up for me in most situ right now.

@theasdgamer @HABD do you have some kind of FUN everyday?… i’ve found that is important for me to maintain my attitude… and if you have a good attitude, fun will find you, strangely enough… yep, i’ve found that’s true, too… lol… everybody loves ‘the FUN'(tm)…lol… and wants some part of it… but i’ve noticed that it’s actually pretty rare ‘in the wild’… most peeps are pretty grim mostly… lol… like they don’t really have ‘permission’ to have it… lol… but that’s just the social conditioning in play… so ‘the FUN'(tm) pings as a big ass DHV!!… lol… good luck! —————-… Read more »

can you get another job to get more hours/experience? what steps to take to get benefits for your health issues?… have you done that, yet? always working on that stuff behind the scenes, just don’t always bring it up in FRS could you start your own biz?… it’s maybe not as easy if you are not in that ‘start up’ culture/environment, but it’s still doable… nah, that’s for when I move. too much time and money to do, when I could put that towards working/saving to move and working on game. you might have to step up as a leader… Read more »

@ hank ” And is it just me, or have the fags just burst out of the woodwork?” Lmfao. Now, now. That language mister!! They are ” gay ” and a part of the LBGT community. They just had a huge parade in NYC recently. For the record, IDGAF what people decide to do sexually. It is absolutely none of my business at all. I’ve had a few men friends that were gay, and multiple lesbian and bisexual chicks as friends and sometimes more. But lately, things seem to be getting out of hand. It makes me suspicious.

But now in hindsight, lol I guess I did appear to be almost wearing a character costume at the time. And you’re correct. My boy Tony teasing me went in one ear and out the other.

@Blaximus “It is encouraged today. So yeah hank, I am seeing what you are seeing. Yeah, shit is changing. No, it doesn’t bode well for our population.” “It” is a lagging indicator, not a leading indicator of a society in decline. It is a non-patriarchal indicator of a a matriarchal descent into a society that has too much. The Bonobo Masturbation society http://www.jack-donovan.com/axis/2012/07/everyone-a-harlot/ Bonobos live luxuriously, with access to as much food as they need.

I am in trendy areas frequently and see crossdressers, etc. quite a bit. Occasionally I get hit on by gays. That used to bother me but not anymore.

I have never felt a need to say #nohomo in any posts.

No, Blax, I won’t fall for that dropping-a-quarter trick a second time.

Guys I just read a fantastic new book by Sebastian Junger which I think has a lot of relevance to the discussion here – all about male bonding, male place in society and male groups – it’s called Tribe. Sebastian Junger is the journalist who wrote Perfect Storm – the book that later became a George Clooney movie, but he’s also a well known war correspondent (Bosnia, Afghanistan etc). The new book is short – you can read it in a couple of hours, but for those who want the even quicker version (YaReally I’m looking at you), it’s an… Read more »

@Culum Struan Wow. Great book. I just read half of it. @I hope @The Man doesn’t read it. He might start justifying egalitarianism once again. The type of egalitarianism that does exist in small tribes, but does not exist in large formed societies. Tribalism is a way to regain mans humanity. A further reason for a bottoms-up approach to one man’s self improvement and also the manosphere’s cause collectively. A couple excerpts that modern society, including our own current declining society isolates individual persons rather than unites them in a common cause, and this is contradictory to how the human… Read more »

“A couple excerpts that modern society, including our own current declining society isolates individual persons rather than unites them in a common cause”

I think this is why post apocalyptic tv shows like The Walking Dead are so popular. Our current society has drifted so far from our basic nature and people are just tired of pretending to be what they’re not.

this thread is interesting in advance of Rollo writing about “great experiences” https://www.reddit.com/r/TheRedPill/comments/4qppet/shallitinders_advice_for_all_guys_in_their_20s/ In a comment there: “The 30s are no place to build a career from scratch.” As a mid 30s guy building his career the last couple of years, I’m echoing this sentiment. I discovered PUA when I was about 22 and let the pursuit of women completely take over my life for about the next 6-7 years. It ate up a majority of my 20s. Next thing I knew, I was 31 and working at a job that paid 1 dollar an hour more than what I… Read more »

Good comment Sentient Your link to that Comment of the Week gave me an intro to an excerpt that that I found in the “Tribe” book by Sebastian Junger that Culum cited. The COTW below yours last year at Heartiste was: The New Heresy, twatting on Twatter, wins the COTW consolation prize. What does it mean to be white? To construct a civilization whose decline is marked by outgroup altruism and ingroup malice. The best shivs get to the point. The following is a stand alone thought separate from the current discussion line. It is in regards to military veterans… Read more »

@SJF – that’s incredibly fast work to get through the book so quickly. Are you reading on a Kindle and marking passages of interest? Because otherwise I don’t see how you’re producing excerpts so quickly..

Also, if you’re interested Junger has done a long podcast interview with Tim Ferriss where he talks a lot more about the book and about his background as well. It’s a little repetitive if you’ve read the book, but I still enjoyed it.

@Culum Struan LOL. First off, yes I am fast at assimilating information and curating it in my own mind and then trying to add value to the discussions here. A long time ago in my education, I learned how to read books the old fashioned way–by just reading them, understanding as I go along and fit the information into abstract thinking. All this red pill manosphere information in the last three years has led me to actually now be able to express my mind a lot better, even if I do cheat and curate and cut and paste stuff.
