    Default Is saying Right? Good or Bad

    Okay, I study pua material like crazy and recently I heard conflicting views from two very popular pickup artists.

    Tyler Durden claims that using the words, right or you know come across as validation seeking. Not to mention a word used by betas.

    Where as the pua that goes by the handle Joker, claims that this makes sure a girl is listening and keeps her engaged in the conversation.

    Now both of these guys are way better than me. Years of experience trump me, but when two titans such as themselves cant come to an agreement. I become very lost. What's your opinion on the subject

    I think you have to consider context; whether or not you are actually coming across as seeking validation.

    Say you're group is trying to decide what to do and you decide to make the alpha move of making decisions. "Guys, it's super hot out. Swimming sounds like a good idea, right?" <-- Here you actually are seeking validation because you want others to agree with you on this decision.

    Now say I'm sitting outside of class and I'm talking to a buddy about how long the assignment took. He tells me he spent two hours on it and I spent three. I'll say, "I KNOW, RIGHT?!?" There's no actual validation seeking here. I'm just cracking jokes and being an asshole.

    I know these aren't the greatest examples, but my point is just to consider context. Fair? <-- I'm seeking validation on my opinion lol

    I find it validation seeking. An alpha male doesn't require anyone to confirm anything he says. He just says anything he likes in statements.
