Note to self: Stop making these mistakes.
1. Direct Approach Overdrive – Using boldness to stop feeling bad from approach anxiety becomes habit-forming boldness to feel good.
Problem: The inert boldness demonstrates a lack of social awareness and actually cultivates approach anxiety as a power source.
Cure: Use boldness only to engage target for bidirectional interaction. Read and listen as well as posture and talk. Start the direct approach with sexual intent for your immediate future but platonic treatment of the set. Targets want to be treated as interchangeable commodities at the beginning because they want a higher value man.
2. Emotionally Defensive Shell – Turning off all emotional availability as a default, and selectively sharing tailored emotions for rare opportunities based on careful logic.
Problem: Correct and immediate emotional responsiveness is a prerequisite of high herd value and initiation of rewarding social interactions.
Cure: Use a strategy of defense-in-depth rather than boundary fortification, and learn win-lose social skills.
3. Acute Discomfort Sympathy – Feeling at face value the discomfort others express towards you.
Problem: The narrative trope or device of emotional discomfort is a cheap way to win pecking order, and its use and contravention is fundamental.
Cure: Use emotional disinterest to filter out negative social cues and maintain your higher value frame, use the alpha pause to win respect if not concession, and calibrate your offensiveness to demonstrate social skill with boundaries. If you don’t win immediately but leave unfazed after making a calm display, you may have tentatively won a hook point with target for the next encounter. Play in calibrated fashion the emotions the target is demonstrably ready to have played.
4. Horn Dog Rage – Feeling overwhelmed with horniness in proximity of target.
Problem: Lust for target moves the emotional center from self to target.
Cure: Direct your horniness toward yourself as a narcissist, and let her safely enjoy your feelings as an empathetic spectator.
You might think that making these mistakes is necessarily a bad thing. That is not true. Sometimes to add the next skill that I need to get past my current sticking point, I need to tear down my entire system as I understand it and rebuild it patiently with hypothesis and field testing. Sometimes I get so intent on applying the new thing I forget the basics and use the new thing in unsuitable contexts.
The basics must be iteratively refined.
Now that I recognize the cyclical rebuilding process of Game, maybe I won’t get so distraught and stuck in the creative doldrums. Only lately have I come to this realization. I looked at the free Owen Cook videos for confirmation and he has been there done that.
Hell of a video library. I’m not sure there is much more to say about theory than what is out there. The Manosphere seems to have stalled on that front. Ain’t no substitute for living your mundane but real life and trying this shit out when you can: I project.
Remember, the more sheeple conflicts you win, the higher your rank and lifestyle, if your path is your choice and your purpose.
Finally, in reference to my last post, “Emote Control Meditation,” I think that the alpha mindset videos with subliminal or nearly subliminal messages are not that effective because they rely on still pictures. The panning and zooming does not fix that. Contiguous video that looks live from a first-person perspective, and maybe secondarily from the third-person perspective, is necessary to properly simulate a social situation. I think the representation of dynamic social interaction is essential for mental training with a video. I understand realism is an important factor of military training.
