    Question Does anyone here use "visualization" in pickup - if so, how?

    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)?

    I tell myself that I will feel worse off if I don't approach. I also pick out a flaw about the girl and kind of focus on that, especially if she is really hot.

    The whole point of visualization is to increase your chances or the odds of success... nothing is guaranteed. But if you don't visualize a positive outcome will your odds be better or worse? Worse of course!

    So the answer is yes you can visualize a positive reaction or conversation with the woman even though its unpredictable. Do you think shooting a basketball is predictable? No way! No matter how great the player is, he will still mis MANY shots in his career. Just like you will strike out while trying to pick up girls... It's going to happen!

    I would suggest visualizing both you being confident and the end result of getting the girl. This can only increase your chances. We are what we think we are. Good luck!

    I use visualization all the time. I work out scenarios whenever I get the chance. I feel it prepares me because I can think of tons of responses for possible things she may say or respond to a question. This way in a real life situation you have many responses on hand and can help avoid those common freeze points. I work ever scenario as far as I wanna take it that night for Instance a Number Close, I followed what I practices and was pleasantly surprised when I saw everything going my way as I had visualized.


    Also. I have a hookup with this girl next weekend. I've already visualized at least 10 ways to end the night in either of our beds, and I'll probably think of 40 more before the weekend. I honestly feel visualization is an amazing tool.

    Do you ever visualize being "someone else", like, some kind of casanova?

    No I don't usually, I try to keep the Mindset that I'm the best one for her. Im not trying to be someone completely different.

    No use visualizing yourself as someone your not. That's just my opinion.

    Get a meditation tape, and visualize yourself as the man you want to be. If it's Casanova, study him, and then visualize those qualities in yourself. It's important to imagine yourself acting as you would WITH those qualities... not "in the process of getting" those qualities.

    Visualization is a very important device to use. You can run through all the possible scenarios in your head before you even make an approach. The worst thing you can think of in your head is probably not the outcome in real life although of course you have to be prepared for anything.

    Visualize these things:

    How you will approach her (how you will walk(your posture), how you will stand(remember no leaning in-that's BAD), your body language etc.

    What specifically will you say and how will you say it(will you talk fast and sound nervous or will you slow down just a bit and try to lower your voice to sound more athoritative and commanding).

    How much interest will you show immediately? Will you act cool and nonchalant(almost indifferent to her reactions) or will you will hang on every one of her words and cling to her like a three year old would do to his mother?

    Etc Etc.

    No. Visualize her Approaching YOU. Because you are approachable, the man, and a sexy beast. STAND as you would if this were the case. DON'T think about what you'll say, this is not visualization. If you are at all worried about what to say, read and memorize some routines. But don't spend your meditation on this. It should be CLEARING your thoughts to make way for the image of yourself.

    OK. But it's silly to visualize her approaching you. Unless you are Brad Pitt or Donald Trump it's simply not going to happen. It's better to visualize something that you have control of and something that is realistic. If you visualize her approaching you then you expect her to approach you. It's not going to happen. Don't expect things. Take control and do them yourself.
