To my understanding, many of the guys who read this blog are not familiar with the PUA community so I refrained from using the conventional term: “AMOGing” in the title of this post. From here on in however, we will be referring to terms and concepts with their proper titles / acronyms because I’m too lazy to explain everything to you guys. Look them up if you don’t know what they mean.
When another guy tries to out-alpha you, your natural inclination will be to respond in two ways. Either
(a) Submit if he is beyond your reach of power. If you just got hired as an entry-level analyst for a financial firm, it’s unlikely you’ll try and AMOG the CEO.
(b) Respond with hostility if you consider him a competitor.
Don’t worry about (a), there’s no shame in looking up to guys whom we have a large amount of respect for, especially if they’re Super Alphas you would model yourself after. Role models provide solid ground for progressive thought and self-development.
(b) Can occur in a variety of ways. Generally you want to do the opposite of whatever the other guy is doing, but simply in a more Alpha manner of exchange. So if he’s ignoring you or trying to be a dick, you should be nice and humor him but show slightly less interest in the conversation. If he’s trying to eject you from a set, you act as if you OWN the set and are trying to include him in it. Be his friend, he could use the help.
If he’s the one who’s trying to humor you, compliment you, build rapport, etc, you have to be a bit of a douche but under a playful frame. So if he’s talking about his ex you can ask him “oh what was his name?” If your dick move is accompanied by laughter, you’ve done it correctly. Generally the winner of such a battle will be determined by each competitors level of wit and the amount of social proof they have.
I know most people say you should abstain from violence, but I’m not going to lie, I’ve punched people before if they pissed me off enough. Generally if the fight was even and I knew he didn’t have a thousand friends around. If he was twice my size, I’d probably call for an arbiter.
Betas have a tendency to react with sarcasm or chatter if your charisma is working a room way better than they could. The best way to respond to this is by ignoring it. Simply omit them from the conversation as if they were irrelevant. The idea is to make their “2 cents” seem insignificant. If you address beta chatter, you immediately raise their social value because YOU are the current alpha and by treating them as a threat, you treat them as an equal.
If all else fails, eat him to absorb his alphaness
