Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, etc have all mentioned something called visualization or "mental imagery" that they say help them in sports. For instance Michael Jordan wrote that he would visualize the 4th quarter of a game and how he would respond to the person guarding him. He'd imagine the ball going through the hoop with every shot, etc.
So my question is, if this works for sports, it would probably work for pickup. Has anyone used any kind of visualization in pickup, I'm sure many have, it's just a little bit more difficult for me to understand. In sports, you could easily imagine the ball going through the hoop, but how would you do this for pickup? You can't imagine things like the conversation or how the other person reacts, those are too unpredictable. So does anyone know how we could use these techniques in with picking up women?
Would we visualize ourselves as just super confident? Or would we visualize the ending only (that is, we WILL get the girl)?
