“Hey Shark, When you say ” I focus on the 99% animal, not the 1% human” What kind of material do you actually read to become this good at social relations?”
No material is needed, only a forcibly realist approach to human behavior and social dynamics. When I say you should focus on the animal, not the human, I mean it quite literally.
If you saw your girlfriend get food you would assume she was hungry right? No esoteric analysis of her behavior is necessary.
If a girl cheats on her boyfriend, what does he usually assume? A billion fucking things from “she just wasn’t getting enough attention,” “maybe she was drunk and made a mistake,” “maybe aliens planted a self-replicating nano-probe in her brain that modified her behavior.” Men (especially those who don’t read this blog) tend to toil away trying to figure out ostensibly obvious answers to common relationship problems.
There are no enigmas in reality. Women don’t deceive men; men use women to deceive themselves.
If your girlfriend cheated on you, it means she was attracted to another guy and wanted to do something with him. If your girlfriend isn’t having sex with you, it means she doesn’t want to have sex with you. If your girlfriend isn’t giving you enough attention, it means her interest level isn’t high enough. The “complications” that arise are imposed by HER and the moment YOU allow those complications to blur your perception, they will drag you and your soul down to the acropolis of bullshit that feeds this generation of fat women who think wearing Prada makes up for their loosely hanging guts.
Pierce reality with your vision. Robert Greene had an excellent metaphor where he described how “perception” in a battle makes a huge difference. If you’re a soldier on the field, you get too caught up in the heat of the moment to notice strategic points of interest. If you suddenly flew up and saw the entire battle from afar, you would know exactly what to do to win the entire battle.
And yes, relationships are like war. It’s not a coincidence that Robert Greene wrote
The 48 laws of Power, The 33 Strategies of War, AND The Art of Seduction.
