I realize this is a necro post, but I haven't been a part of any regular community in a very long time and I have a few questions.
My game was learned the old fashioned way, by adopting Tyler Durden's 25 points, gaining a basic understanding of Mystery's old method structure, gaining a solid understanding of female body language and attraction triggers, and then going out and making a fool of myself for a long time using trial and error in one of the most challenging environments that I could find. An upscale University campus scene notorious for its exclusivity to outsiders, along with the fact that I'm a full 10-15 years senior in age to the women I was picking up. I don't look my age at all so I could outright lie and claim to be a 27-28 yr old grad student.
Basically I put myself through a lot of hell to learn what I term as "above average game" rather than true Pick up artistry. I never truly adopted any system, but instead developed an analytical form of natural game that mixes various parts of ALL systems into one form.
After reading through this thread, alot of this system seems to come off to me as reading tea leaves. I don't want to say that the system doesn't work(all systems work when given a chance I believe) but it just comes across almost like reading a horoscope. Personality profiles and stuff, predicitions of how these personality types will interact with you and how to change your game accordingly. It just seems artificial compared to the older systems I learned under that sort relied more on teaching natural game skills.
Is there REALLY something to this system and I'm just reading it wrong? Is there somewhere I can learn a bit about it because it does catch my interest in some ways. I keep an open mind about various systems because one can always glean bits of information from all systems and combine them into your game. I just feel uneasy with anything that tries to put such a complex thing into a "box" and I do not like to buy PUA products as I'm experienced enough to know the wheat from the chaff in most respects and I don't like to hand my hard earned money over to hustlers when I'm perfectly capable of learning most stuff based on free information over the net.
This system does intrigue me a bit and I've read a lot of the posts in this thread but I'm still undecided that what seems to me to be an almost overly complex system. Is there an outline of how the basic system works, its attributes and what exactly it is supposed to give me in terms of techique and skill?
