    Default any good tv shows/movies that portray alphas?

    I've been watching mad men- and its great because im trying to play off on the mannerisms of him, including body language and how they react- always telling never asking etc.

    I read somewhere about the confidence of Tom Cruise and I agree he's very alpha- but his weirdness in real life makes it hard to really want to emulate him.

    I've seen bond movies etc and again the problem is theres all this behavior that doesnt translate well in real life- but some stuff in movies especially older movies with mickey rourke- shows Confidence is good.

    Can you guys recommend maybe reality tv that shows this? Please not jersey shore but how about real world? is that valuable at all.

    Or short clips that really present confidence in a quick way to watch and understand?

    At this point for me the problem is just not knowing. I think i can bring myself to act confident and do the right things but I dont know what to do.

    I'm not referring to canned lines- something I cant handle. I mean just bread and butter behavior/what to say think about in the right situation.

    Watch Lucky Bastards on Esquire Network. It's a reality show that follows successful men being uninhibited and doing what they want.

    I'm in the the same boat. I decided to start watching two and a half men. They get women and its funny, but I'm sure better shows are out there.

    Clint Eastwood in most of his films. David Duchovny (The X-Files guy) in Californication is basically a PUA. Will Smith in Hitch is a professional PUA.

    yeah but hitch and movies like that are all canned lines- and lets face it, he's got rumors he's gay so who knows if any of his lines are worth it.

    Californication is interesting.

    What? Bro you're over thinking, I said that in your last thread. Alphas do what is right by them and only them. Here's why: there is no right and wrong in life just perceptions. Just make sure your perceptions don't get you in jail and people who are like you will naturally floc to you.

    Entourage---all of the main cast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

    Its a great show to see the differen dynamics that you can play. I thought it was unlikely that people acted this way 5 years ago but--since having lived in LA i would say that its actually a pretty acurate portrayal of LA. If you're in a smaller town you'd have to caliberate to the personalities but in a city like LA you have people who tend to read the situations just a little more accurately because theres so many people and more expecations and encounters occur.

    I'm sure people will disagree with me about the comparison to a small town to a big city but in my experience there are different attitudes and social ettiquettes to calibrate to.
    Every moment counts, get out of your head and enjoy it.

    Jayk, one of the best shows to see alpha's in action picking up girls is a reality/game show call "Keys to the VIP" It's 2 PUA competing to see how they can pick up girls in a real club setting. Everything is done live through hidden cameras. There's 3 judges that make hilarious commentary. I actually owe the entire 2 seasons. You can find some on youtube.

    Bear in mind that there are "alpha's" used in two different sense.

    There is alpha as in the style/type of pick-up or player. These are usually big guys or bad boys (like a Vin Diesel or Dwayne Johnson) and due to their intimidating presence, they can dominate conversations and lead and without doing any work trigger off the primal attraction in women. Then there are "alphas" who are not big in stature, but they have larger than life personalities.

    Then there is alpha in terms of your frame and innergame and to adopt inner traits, such as being dominant, competent, charismatic, etc to women. Leadership traits.

    The best advice I can give you is don't try to emulate people you see on TV and stay congruent to yourself.

    Be the best of yourself and develop that identity. How do you know what is your best? If there was a time when you were the center of attention with people you were comfortable with or even feel superior to. Recall your mannerisms, behaviors, and cool comfortable confident state of mind back then. You were the man. Take that moment and work with that.

    In method acting, we were taught not to "pretend" or perform. Anyone can act. The hardest thing is not doing it.

    For example, you are a short person. Al Pacino is very short but he has a larger than life personality, but that is congruent to him. It is his style. Naturally you are not going to try to be like that. Anyone who tries to copy that is just pretending and can come off as fake.

    The real basis of being "alpha" is to develop your intrinsic identity. Don't follow trends. Be a trendsetter.

    In a small town I've noticed that people are less likely to be promiscuous because its likely everyone will know each other. I would say in a small town you're going to have a harder time to be able to hook up with every chick because people talk. I'm talking small towns. Think of small towns as the regular club you would goto and every night you go is always the same crowd--its rare to see a new face in a small town.

    In a big city its sorta the opposite because you're facing hundreds upon hundreds of oppurtunities with different people. Give it another few years and a small town might not seem so small anymore.

    When you look at a city that has a million people or more you have more of an oppurtinity to make decisions and not care about your results. I was recently talkingto a friend and the idea as 'your word'. In a big city people tend to get caught up in life with so may things going on in the city with different people that you're likely to find a lot of empty promises. But in a small town people remember your face and your word.

    In some respects people would start to define things as conservative or liberal but i'm a person who believes that life is more complex than groups and more about lifestyles. When you talk to someone and you start to really discover them you're likely to find out if they're from the city or a small town. Given everything i said you can calibrate your approach based on what they are likely to have experienced--it really helps if you can back it up with your own experience. I would refrain from saying something you didnt know anything about.

    When calibration comes to mind with people with a small town or big city background you can tell if they're approving your presence or not. Recently i read on this forum about a guy and his friends not really fond of a chick who was a pua approaching them because of their southern ettiquette they all shared having been friends from the same town. The guy let it slide too because he too was a pua who in private let her know he was one too. The idea i'm highlighting here is that sometimes you'll find cultural differences and some people are more likely to be open and others tend to be more closed or reserved. By the responses you're getting it should be clear if her experiences are reflecting more of a small town / big city... Born, raised, never saw the world or well versed and cultured to many experiences.

    Hmm... Hopefully this explains it. Its kind of complex i just realized...
