@Fawk_Face actually, after I re-watched it...I must say, I didn't remember it that way LOL. That dude is alpha but not the definition of a successful alpha. I think you can filter the bad traits and garner the good ones nonetheless. I'm speaking of the 0 fucks given attitude which is naturally the most important thing.
This may be tangential but Kafka’s The Metamorphosis is a good expression of how ones perception of the self can be a projection of their wants and needs from an outside source.
Gregor, the main character, finds himself turning into an insect, or parasite. He has provided for his family, but in finding himself turning into an insect he can no longer fill that role, and so the family start to notice this new change in Gregor.
That is to say, if he perceives himself to be a parasite subjectively then it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy, and then becomes objective to his family. If Gregor maintained his positive image to himself, the family would maintain the same view.
It is what you project outward that people see, and that begins with actualising yourself to what you want to see in yourself.Read More
@Fawk_Face you made me remember a tv series called "skins" I watched as a kid a few years ago. There was a dude (called "Cook") who was the exact definition of alpha. Popular, with a zero fucks given attitude and hated by all the other betas.
I was a complete beta when I watched that series, but I deep down knew I wanted to become like that dude. And even if that's fiction, I can guarantee you it's 100% achievable in real life with hard work.
This is one video I've found if you're interested: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydd5q0_-kiy
@carnold03 exactly. sluts are just projecting their insecurities onto men who are sexually inexperienced. if you were a young woman who was a virgin, would you really want to have a guy who's been around the block? or someone with a track record of taking women seriously?
