    Default Pick-up Art in the Business World.

    I have no relation to business, in fact, I just graduated high school 2 months ago and I am not going for a business major in college, BUT...

    I had an idea. You could say that pick-up art is a means of getting people to like you(not just girls, I'm sure guys want to be friends with lively people, too). It is primarily used to form a bond with a girl and get her to do what you want (gf, sex, marriage, whatever). *That's one way to look at it, I know, not the best definition*
    But what if you use the art to befriend guys and build relations with them? I'm sure in business that could come in handy, having some good friends that would be willing to help. You know, connections.

    I'd like to hear your thoughts on how the social theory developed by the pick-up community could be applied to developing business relations.

    Beeing an alpha will make people gravitate towards you and subconciously they will want to please and obey u.

    My brother in law is very socially active. He's always fun to be around. And he climbed up the ladder from being a trainee. Now he's living in a massive house with built in jacuzi and about 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms which he's selling because he just got promoted all because he's fun and people like him especially his clients. That's already why I know what I'm busy learning here is not a waste. Seriously. It's a massive head start to life. People in high places aren't there because they were lucky, they went out and became the ones everyone wants to works with. Just think of the movie limitless for example. He became the alpha male and got everyone wanting to work with him. I know it's just a movie, but I'm sure the writer also thought of that. Well, that's just my opinion on it.

    Being a PUA isnt just about women. It helps people who arent normally socially acceptable become socially acceptable.

    The most common problems I have seen here can be solved through practice. The problem is, most of these AFCs think they only need to practice on women. However practicing on men is just as beneficial. Especially if your trying to network your life and have a more diverse dynamic to your options. Its not only in growing your own business or anything in particular. Some of these guys you game will become great friends of yours and if you happen to find yourself in a tight spot, its likely one of them will have the ability to influence some sort of decision such as a loan or job offer. So the game really isnt just about women its about social psychology as a whole. It just the advice is tailored to turn women on. You just have to do a little tune up and youll have a band of misfits eating out of your hand just like the ladies.

    You are right, in fact many of the great PUAs actually got their ideas in clases like marketing or NLP (my favorite). The skills you can learn here can give you the confidence needed in a business setting and even help you create better relationships with coworkers and bosses.

    I agree that having good social skills and being an alpha male would help in the business world. But I don't think the skills used for picking up women would be as beneficial.

    I disagree. I think that some of the principles of the game can be applied to business but as a whole I do not agree. I think that being too alpha socially can turn people off because in some cases it comes off immature and not professional (like negging and cocky/funny).

    As mentioned I think that principles can be applied: why do people act the wey they do, what motivates them, confidence, ect.

    Another example, going AFC and apologizing to customers is definitely not PUA... But it's damn good for business. I apologize often in business and lead by empowering others, not walking around being cocky/funny . Most CEOs and leaders are not pick up artists... Their AFCs with a sh1tload of power.

    Doesn't mean you cant hone both. Becoming a PUA will grow you as a person and maybe if your in sales you will make more calls or be able to read people better.

    Those are just my scattered thoughts...


    What do you guys think?

    That's because you only see alpha as "frat guy", where as it can be so much more. One of the men I really look up to is Bill Clinton, because of his ridiculous charisma. Seriously, look at videos about him, he has awesome body language, and it got him the power AND the girls

    Being AFC might be good for business, but not for leadership positions. You don't see the boss calling the customer to say he is sorry, unless they really messed up. And actually, apologizing "can" be alpha, if you actually messed up. Recognizing you're wrong, and admitting it, is pua.

    look what JFK did, seduced the whole country, seduction is just as valid in community as it is in attraction, alot of people do it, sun tzu: art of war is used heaps in the coperate world if you can interpret it. i use that and art of seduction in my work force in a coprate manner and it just got me a 10k pay rise
    Men, we need to value our time more then we value women. This isn't to say women are not valuable. But who are we to believe in something so illogical, as men we should realize that without our time(life), we would not even be able to pursue women, but only our mother who gave us life. Why do we think we should prioritize them over our time(life) unless she is the one who gives me/my children life. Man is Sovereignty.
