  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept21Post.mp4 One of our biggest worries is knowing what to say. Job interviews, meeting new friends, talking to cute guys or girls. When two people meet each other for the first time, even with random strangers, we go into a kind of "defense mode." Everybody has a whole bunch of different layers. When you are with old and close friends, you can "let it all hang out." Fart, burp, drop as a many f-bombs as you want. But if you did that during a job interview, or on a first date, it would probably backfire. This makes rat
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July17Post.mp4 One common piece of advice, if you want to approach an attractive person, is act like they are your friend. This is slightly different than the "be yourself" advice, but its intentions are the same. When you are with your friends, you are yourself. The idea is pretty simple. When you are yourself, you are your most congruent. Your brain is working the quickest. The most uninhibited by social anxiety. You can respond playfully to your buddies at the highest level of efficiency. This is the result of be
  3. 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
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb23Post.mp4 One of the interesting paradoxes is whatever you prepare for doesn't happen. But if you don't prepare, it will. Sometimes, this is kind of silly, like if you think it's going to rain. If you DON'T bring an umbrella, it will rain. If you DO bring an umbrella, it won't. This is a common idea in many martial arts movies. The whole reason to train and learn how to fight, is so you don't need to fight. If you walk into a bar while radiating SCARED energy, you'll become a target for those types who like to pick o

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept03Post.mp4 One of our biggest thinking problems is mistaking correlation and causation. You'll see this everywhere. What's particularly amusing is if you trace a purely scientific research study. First it's written purely by academics for academics. Generally published in some kind of academic journal. Which means it needs to be approved an editor of an academic journal. But academic types need to earn a living just like everybody else. And many of these live off grants. And grants come from politicians. Wh
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug26Post.mp4 One of the most powerful words is "because." A study demonstrated this. A woman was waiting in line at a copy machine. She asked if she could cut in line, and most people said no. Then she asked if she could cut in line BECAUSE her car was parked in a towing zone. Most people said yes. Then the researchers had her ask again, only this time, the reason made no sense. She asked if she could cut in line BECAUSE she had copies to make. And most people said yes. Researchers have also done plenty of stu
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug24Post.mp4 Externalizing is a very common human trait. It's when WE have a problem. But we don't want to admit it. So we imagine the problems is OUT THERE. It works metaphorically like a semi-permeable membrane. The kind around our cells that only lets good stuff in. And keeps out the bad stuff. Every aspect of our mind-body system was put there for a reason. Unfortunately, a lot of it is outdated. Like government computer systems. The problem is when use our natural defense systems too much. Exter
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug23Post.mp4 There are some very enlightening surprises you'll find once you start to get over any social anxiety. The first realization is that ALL people have a certain amount of social anxiety. Everybody is different around new people, compared to close friends. Everybody is a little bit more withdrawn around new people. It's common to put people into binary categories. Introverted, extroverted. Shy, outgoing. But in reality, these are very flexible sliding scales. Nearly ALL people are MORE withdrawn and MORE n
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug22Post.mp4 A long, long time ago, human brains started to get really big. Eventually, a decision had to be made. Because our brains were getting so big, there was a problem with birth. There were essentially two choices. The first choice was that our hips could keep getting wider and wider, so our brains to keep getting bigger and bigger. That wasn't such a good option, because that would force us back to walking on four legs. So the next option was to have us born WAY before we were finished. This is why humans are h
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug21Post.mp4 All humans have "problems" with any ideas of causality. This commonly comes out when somebody says: "Correlation does not mean causation." A common example is that in summer, people buy more ice cream. And in summer more people go swimming. Since more people are going swimming, there are more shark attacks. So you COULD see a correlation between ice cream and shark attacks. By assuming CAUASATION, when there is really correlation, you would say that eating ice cream CAUSES shark attacks. This idea is a
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July22Post.mp4 Humans are very attached to the idea of free will. A common metaphor that describes the relationship between the conscious mind and the unconscious mind is of a captain and a ship. The unconscious mind is the powerful ship. The conscious mind is the captain who steers the ship. The problem with many beliefs is they are very much like food. We don't eat food because it is healthy. We eat food because it tastes good. To the extent you DO eat food because it's healthy, it's not automatic. And it's not ea
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July7Post.mp4 Way back when I was in high school, my buddies and I love to watch Mad Max. My buddies were all car freaks, more so than I was. They loved the idea of having a big V8 with a secret nitrous oxide injection to give it an extra boost. Their favorite part was when Max was chasing the bad guys, then he'd calmly flip on the switch to give his car a boost. Then he'd suddenly accelerate, overtake the bad guys and cause them all to crash. One of the Star Trek movies was a crossover. Where they had the original cast in wi
  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun28Post.mp4 A very common movie scene is the halftime locker room speech. Where the hero's team is behind at halftime. The coach gives them a rousing speech that fires them up. They come out, destroy the other team, and everybody lives happily ever after. It's also common for guys who are going out to pick up girls to a have some kind of "pre-game" warm up. Some times this involves hitting a bar before to knock back a few and practice some conversations. So when they get to the place where the girls are, they built up their
  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun27Post.mp4 There's a pretty common scene in movies. One guy has got to do something painful to another guy. Like set a broken arm, or put a dislocated shoulder back. The common way is for the guy or gal doing the painful thing to count. "OK, on three..." And then they invariably do the thing halfway between 2 and 3. The idea being to get the guy off guard, so it happens more quickly and less painfully. But this is so common in the movies, the some shows are starting to have the guy getting the bone fixed to KNOW that
  17. http://mindpersuasion.com/instinct-persuasion/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun26Post.mp4 Human instincts are extremely powerful for a reason. So powerful that they are impossible to ignore. This was so we didn't have to "think" about what to do every day. The trouble is this is hard to "see" in a real way today. Most people will never have a situation where they are hungry for more than a day, and NOT know where they are going to find food. This is why they say that EVERY SOCIETY is always three meals away from a revolution. If EVERYBODY realizes t
  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun20Post.mp4 I've a had a pretty interesting experience a few times. And that is to spend quite a lot of time traveling. 20-30 hours. And when you're traveling, you're thinking about how tired you are. How crappy the seats are. How annoying all the people are. And how happy you'll be when you can collapse onto your hotel bed. But then you show up in the city. A city you've never been to before. And suddenly you've got tons of energy. So you go out exploring. Maybe only to get a bite to eat, something
  19. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun19Post.mp4 In one of the Rocky movies, they had him chasing a chicken. Rocky thought it was stupid. His trainer knew better. Turned out to be a pretty good training technique. Chickens are pretty quick, and are hard to catch. The longer you chase them, the more flexibility and endurance you'll develop. Of course, this was another of the "strange training" themes in plenty of the Rocky movies. Hitting sides of beef, running up sides of mountains, etc. These all play along with the "poor athlete who can't afford ex
  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun17Post.mp4 Once I was at this local bar. And they had this blues band playing. A local band. Their guitarist was much better than you'd imagine to see in a small local bar playing up on stage. The bar could hold maybe 50 people, if it were packed. But this guy was up there just absolutely shredding. But he was doing it in a way that indicated he didn't need much of his conscious brain. Of course, nobody thinks like this. "Wow, that guy seems to well into the range of unconscious competence!" But when somebod
  21. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun15Post.mp4 Managing instincts is difficult. We were programmed a long, long time ago. Before we learned how to think, and talk and imagine. Instincts are like compulsions. They make us do certain things. And keep us from doing other things. Since they were "calibrated" a long, long time ago, they're kind of out of balance. That's why it's so hard to maintain a healthy weight. Being always hungery, and getting a huge pleasure while eating was necessary a long time ago. When food was hard and sometimes dang

  23. Everybody has a unique balance with respect to social comfort. Everybody has a point beyond which they'll start to feel social anxiety. Everybody has a point up to which they'll be more outgoing. When we are around friends, this balance is in one place. When we are around strangers, this balance is somewhere else. Regardless of who we are around, we tend to find our own equilibrium. Too much outgoing behavior will get us TOO MUCH attention, and cause us to pull back. Not enough will motivate us to speak up, and push out a bit. Both of these involve the i
  24. A common and very old "pick up line" works best with very attractive women. You see a gorgeous girl, you walk up confidently and say, "Excuse me, I don't mean to bother you. I just want to ask you a quick question. Are you as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside?" As a pickup line, it will knock any pretty girl off balance. It's meant to demonstrate that the asker is more concerned with personality than silly things like beauty. Of course, like all pickup lines, it won't really work if you don't understand the deeper meanings and presuppositions. If y
