A lot of people who claim to teach how to pick up girls are just scammers. For example, “Neuro Linguistic Programming” is just a variation on the old “Get Girls by Hypnosis” scam. But Roissy is the real deal. I know well his stuff works.
Most beautiful high IQ high socioeconomic status women are blowing their youth, their beauty, and their most fertile years on low income semi employed assholes with room temperature IQs, the kind of guy who sometimes gets a job folding sweaters, sometimes deals a little dope, sometimes a bit of burglary, but mostly sponges off his exceedingly numerous girlfriends, particularly the flock of them that are high socioeconomic status.
And here is a post from a young lady who is industriously blowing her youth, beauty, and most fertile years confirming many of Roissy’s maxims.
Which raises the interesting question. Why are most naturals kind of stupid? If female hypergamy works, should not naturals be above average intelligence?
I conjecture that much of the problem is that stupid people act brave, not because they are brave, but because they don’t think about the consequences of their actions. The man who is a part time sweater folder, part time burglar, and full time sponger off girlfriends is unlikely to be intimidated by political correctness.
A smart nerd and a dumb asshole are forced to attend a lecture on rape and respecting women and consent and all that boring stuff. The smart nerd is terrified and believes everything he hears, and thinks that if he says “hi” to a pretty girl he will arrested. The dumb asshole does not understand a word. All he sees is a fat diesel dyke making menacing gestures like an overweight angry gorilla and braying “waah waah waah”
So the dumb asshole goes forth and grabs some girl’s ass, while the smart nerd cowers in the corner trembling in fear.
A long time ago I was walking along, and ran into a girl I knew vaguely. She was a friend of a friend of friend or something like that. So I grabbed her and kissed on the lips. After several seconds she pulled away and protested vehemently:
What the hell do you think you are doing
She said with much indignation.
To which I impudently replied with a big grin:
Kissing you on the lips.
After a couple of seconds she grinned also, and we kissed a little more.
Then she gave me the “I have boyfriend” shit test, which shit test, being ignorant and innocent back in those days, I failed.
I was never a pick up artist, but however embarrassingly incompetent my efforts to meet girls were, I did better than anyone too frightened to try.
Before 1972, there was no stereotype of the sexually unsuccessful awkward high IQ nerd. I don’t believe the awkward high IQ nerd existed until recent times. Something has changed. The stereotypical smart person used to resemble Feynman and Wernher von Braun, who were notorious hits with chicks.
What has changed that leads to stupid people cleaning up?
1. Elite culture has become more hostile to intelligence. Catcher in the Rye replaces Anabasis. Smart people tend to exclude women and blacks. Shirtgate guy.
2. Smart people have a tendency to deal with girls on the basis of what they are taught, rather than instinct, hence, the blue pill generates men who are very bad at women. The smarter you are, the better you are at absorbing and accepting misinformation.
When I was kid, quite a long time ago, a lot of what is now PUA lore, that nice guys finish last, that a man should take rejection imperturbably, that faint heart never won fair lady, was common knowledge, stuff that everyone knew. This widespread knowledge of women was suppressed, and replaced by misinformation, and the intellectuals were the primary targets of that misinformation. The smarter you are, the more exposed to the blue pill.
