  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept22Post.mp4 TV salesman are very charismatic, and very entertaining. One example is the guy from "Halt and Catch Fire." A fictionalized drama about the beginnings of the computer age. PC's, internet, web browsers, back when all that stuff was invented. But the main character that was the sales type was VERY stereotypically charismatic. When he spoke, he had tons of confidence, and unbreakable frame, and he spoke in very well calibrated, very beutiful metaphors. Similarly, fictional seducers are either one of two types.
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug17APost.mp4 Cialdini made a huge impact with his first book about persuasion and influence. He is a psychology professor, but he did his experiments, and came to his conclusions, as a true marketer. There is a long known about phenomenon in psychology that people rarely tell the "truth" when answering surveys. They do tell the truth, but it's a "altered truth." For example, imagine you saw an ad on Craigslist or somewhere. They paid you $50 to come in for a day and taste a bunch of different snack crackers and give your feedbac
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr27Post.mp4 A very common martial arts movie trope is that you learn to fight so you don't have to fight. With just a little bit of thought, this makes perfect sense. If you don't know how to fight, AND you are worried about getting beat up, you will project a certain non-verbal energy. Street thieves, pickpockets, etc. know exactly WHO will be most likely to NOT put up a fight. And who will most freaked out to NOT remember much. They look for people with "weak" body language. Lack of eye contact, slumped shoulders, etc.
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr21Post.mp4 This place where I used to live had an arm wrestling stand set up near the main station. It was just a tallish table, with a couple of slots for people to put their elbows in. It was only up during the summer. Where guys could stop and compete on their way home from drinking in the pubs around the station. On the other hand, they also have professional arm wrestlers. People spend their career getting stronger and stronger for arm wrestling competitions. Most of us, however, only arm wrestle under certain scen
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar28Post.mp4 A long time ago I used to go to this Thai restaurant. They had a pretty good chicken dish, don't forget the specifics. Very spicy. I would always go there in the early afternoon. I liked to read the business paper while enjoying a leisurely lunch. Study all the stock and commodity charts. After the lunch crowd had thinned out. This was back when I was learning about a lot of covert hypnosis and NLP patterns. Now, a lot of "techniques" involve using patterns, etc. on waitresses. This isn't one of t
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar24Post.mp4 According to anthropologists, language and conscious thought is why humans eventually took over the planet. Many other animals can learn, but humans can do so collectively. This means we can discover and idea, and share it with others. Once everybody has this idea, it becomes part of the "collective consciousness." This allowed humans to learn as a group. Even from generation to generation. Even while skipping a bunch of generations. This is one of the things that ended the dark ages, and opened up the e
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar17Post.mp4 We humans love competition. For fun, for business, and for fun. However, it's very easy to shy away from any kind of competition. For kids, this is pretty normal. You'll find plenty of little league sports that are easing the kids into competition. The first step is to get them running around and moving with other kids. The next step is to get them switching from offense to defense, or at least understanding what they mean. During this phase, they "score" but they don't "keep score." In most sports, th
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb25Post.mp4 A lot of people are worried about AI robots taking over our jobs. That's partially true. If you have a job that's pretty monotonous, chances are a robot is going to be doing it. Flipping burgers, making pizzas, putting together stuff on the assembly line, even surgery. What WON'T ever be taken over by robots? Anything that requires in-the-moment human interaction. This requires something robots will never do. Look at while people while you are talking and they are talking. Read their emotions and adjus
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb21Post.mp4 A very useful skill is to "go meta." This is why many couples go to therapy. The benefits aren't because some goof knows more about their relationship than they do, and can tell them what to do. The main benefit is the therapist, so long as they're decent, will remain objective. If we get into an argument with somebody, it's very easy to get stuck into our position. This makes it HARDER to be objective. This is sometimes called the pushback effect. Because it's VERY HARD for us humans to admit we are wrong,
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb18Post.mp4 There's a lot of sayings from the self help space that are both really corny, but really true. They are corny not because of the saying themselves, but because of the goofs running around saying them. Most of these types of "truisms" are said by folks who really have no idea what they are talking about. So they say these things without fully understanding them. So they get applied to the wrong situations. And they end up sounding like self delusional BS. But once you experience these ideas, you "get them" on
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb16Post.mp4 Long time ago, I watched this amateur cage fight. They weren't exactly in a cage. It was a regular boxing ring, but it was in the ground floor of this huge shopping complex. The dudes started off pretty good, but they both got really tired really quickly. After no more than a minute, both guys were exhausted. They would try to throw a punch or two, and then hang on to each other in a tight clench. The kind of thing when boxers or fighters are barely able to keep standing. The kind of thing you see in the
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec27Post.mp4 A very common "truism" is that lying is wrong, but not for the reasons people assume. It's "wrong" because the more you lie, the more stuff you've got to remember. Lying is bad, from a purely strategic standpoint. This is why if you think somebody is lying to you, ask them to first tell you their story. Then ask them to tell it to you backwards. If they are telling the truth, then describing the events in reverse will be just as easy as forward. This is precisely what people mean when they say the know someth
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct25Post.mp4 A long, long time ago, I took a class in differential equations. We had learned a very simple, and very elegant way to solve equations. Except I couldn't quite wrap my mind around it. I had to rely on old school techniques. More like brute force techniques. After one test, the professor wrote a note on my test. I had gotten a decent score, so he couldn't quite criticize me. But I got the feeling he was messing with me nonetheless. One of those things that seems like a compliment but is really a covert
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug04Post.mp4 There are, have always been, and always will be "hacks." Ways to shortcut any type of system. You might even say trying to find "hacks" is a driving evolutionary force. Metaphorically, every advantage a new species gets is a kind of environmental hack. To get a leg up against the competition. One interesting theory uses this to explain why humans have such a high capacity of self-deception. Once upon a time, we were fairly simple creatures. We spent our lives living around everybody we knew. Nobody eve
  15. If you ever get stuck in a social situation and you don't know what to do, it's usually too late. Humans behave BEST when we are operating mostly subconsciously. Automatically. In sports, the coveted flow state is when you are operating at a very high level AND mostly unconsciously. When it seems like you are WATCHING yourself perform. This can happen socially as well. For most of us, this happens with close friends with whom we have a ton of built in rapport. This is when conversations flow and good times roll. But it is also possible to create this soc
  16. Very often there is huge difference between long term and short term strategies. If you want something in the short term, this will often make it MUCH more difficult to get those same things in the long term. And if you try to get those same things in the LONG TERM, it will make it much more difficult to get satisfaction in the short term. One obvious area is food, eating and exercise. Sitting on the couch and eating burgers FEELS GOOD in the short term. But it adds up to lots of PAIN in the long term. The older you get, the more your joints will hurt. The mo
  17. It's a common idea to wish for magic seduction tricks. Even in other things like weight loss, it seems we humans are absolute suckers for the "one weird trick" scam Like if we find that one weird trick to lose weight, our problems are over. Or if we find that one secret hack into the female mind, we'll understand how easy it is to make ANY girl fall head over heels in lust with us. Unfortunately, these are all cons. Based on the same idea of the ancient snake oil salesman. The guy who would roll into town, and sell the "one weird potion" that would fix everything.
  18. Despite modern popular propaganda, there are tons of differences between men and women. And a very easy way to imagine these differences is the ONE THING that led to human flexibility and creativity. Every other animal except for humans doesn't have a sexual division of labor when it comes to getting food. Choose any animal, and when they are hungry, males and females both go after the same type of food. But humans split along gender lines. LONG before we were humans. Men hunted, and women gathered. We either become omnivores BECAUSE of this, or we split alon
  19. If you have tons of money, it's easy to get a loan. If you not only have tons of money but have a couple of steady income streams, it's even easier to get a loan. On the other hand, if you're broke and walk into a bank, they'll want nothing to do with you. The same idea goes for generating unconscious attraction. If you are desperate, nobody will want anything to do with you. If you are the opposite of desperate, everybody will want some. If you've walked through any crowded nightspot with a nice lady on your arm, you know this feeling. EVERYBODY is checking
  20. Long, long ago, we humans didn't need to think very much. We were DRIVEN by our instincts. Those with the strongest instincts survived. Since food was hard to get, those who were always the HUNGRIEST were the most successful. Sexual desire is another powerful instinct. Humans are primates. And different primates have different strategies on how to deal with sex. Human females don't make it obvious when they are ovulating. Other primates, like chimps, do. Plenty of studies have shown that when a woman is ovulating, she finds a different type attracti
  21. A very common, and very dangerous idea is that you need money to get girls. It's common because like most beliefs, it's easy to find proof. This is a function of confirmation bias. On the other hand, if you purposely tried to find evidence of guys with NO money who could easily get girls, you'd find it. One of the reasons this idea, that you need money to get girls, is dangerous is it can serve as a very HANDY excuse to stay on the sidelines. There you are, looking out across the room. You see TONS of sexy girls. But then that belief pops into your head.
  22. It's a very common idea to NOT do something SPECIFICALLY to attract women. This is a very good idea. Because if you are ONLY doing things to attract women, or any particular women, this is dangerous. You're basically sending a message to her, and your subconscious that getting a woman is MORE important than living a successful life. Most guys do this when they put women up on a pedestal. The make her seem much better than they really are. This is a form of one-itis. When you have an IMAGINATION of her that is not based on reality. When you fall in love w
  23. One of the biggest killers of attraction is to make your intentions known. One of Dale Carnegie's most helpful insights is the idea that you can get anybody to do anything so long as they believe it's their idea. Which means if you are CONSCIOUSLY trying to create attraction, it won't work very well. Best case is you are her only choice. And she ALREADY has a baseline level of attraction. But if you come out of nowhere, and start talking to her, it's very difficult to CREATE attraction from nothing. It's especially hard if she sense's that is your intention.
  24. The halo effect is an interesting phenomenon. It exists and has been proven through various studies. But it's also something that nobody benefits by admitting. If you are particularly attractive, the last thing you want to do is chalk up any success to your looks. If you want to make an attractive person angry, tell them they are ONLY successful (or even partially successful) due to their looks. But normal looking people also don't like to acknowledge the halo effect. That would mean since we normal folks aren't gorgeous, we'll be limited. The good news is th
