Social experiments help me shift away from Approach Anxiety & build confidence. One thing I've stumbled upon is talking to complete strangers without a pick up angle. This is powerful. How many times in your life have you had a complete stranger introduce you to all the best people in the room? Or wing you into a set with women? Or help you find your friends? Unless you are an HB10, this is probably rare.
I have always been an intuitive, perceptive, discerning type. Some people used to say I could read minds (haha) but it is only reading body language. In my confidence building games, I'm always trying to challenge myself & stay in-tune with my gut feelings. Being sober helps. I challenge you to try noticing what strangers are feeling & imagine what they might need. Then be the friendly facilitator without an angle. You will never believe what can happen.
I will post my most notable stories below.
