I'll add to this.
"Showing off" can have different motivations.
A low-value person will show off because they subconsciously view themselves as inferior and have no sense of self, confidence, or priorities, so they chase social validation as a means to feel valuable and accepted by those they view as above them. They may also subconsciously look for guidance from these people, hence why they are so adamant on their acceptance.
A high-value person will show off because they know their worth and want to flaunt their value, with the motivation of stroking their ego and/or adding a little bit of fun to their life - a life that is already characterized by value, a strong sense of self-confidence, and a clear sense of purpose/priorities.
Both have ego.
The difference is internal motivations.
One is insecure, and the other isn't. One is confident, the other is unconfident.Read More
@Kloi Showing off is fun. It's fun to flaunt your value a bit and get hoes on you etc.
Just don't make others your main goal in life.
Having no ego is impossible. Having priorities and a strong sense of self is.
And as with other things, don't overthink this shit.
Not only that but I’d argue that dependency on devices for shit like alarms, reminders; etc. takes too much off your brain and makes you dumber.
The brain is like a muscle, if you never exercise it and depend on a spotter for every rep you do, how can you expect to make it stronger?
Throughout human history there are examples of tribes eliminating others in massive numbers to gain dominance.
It’s debatable that Homo Sapiens killed off Neanderthals during the early human era.
There was also Genghis Kahn murdering millions during his conquests.
There’s no substantial evidence to say AI won’t view us as a threat and turn against us once it becomes self-aware.
@thereal Elon Musk even stated the above when he went on Joe Rogan’s podcast. The dude is capitalizing on it because he views it as inevitable.
Good try. But you failed from the start.
Why? Because you are in her frame, trying to meet her expectations.
Women enjoy being dominated. That includes in conversation. She doesn’t want the ability to push you around with her dumb jokes. She wants you to put your dick on the table.
Develop and assert your frame.
