Advice to a Young Beta Male

April 30, 2011

Advice, it is what the older inflict on the younger; it is their attempt to fix their own past, by trying to fix your present. In that spirit, here are some things I realize now, that I wished I realized when younger.

While this advice may be useful to all men, I am aiming it towards a young man between 15 and 25 years of age. It is not profound, and most likely not life changing, but it is the kind of things that I wish I had figured out then.


Myers Musings: Myers and Me

April 28, 2011

I seem to be on a Myers-Briggs kick this week (I hope more enjoyable than the HBD stuff). It has been a while since I posted anything personal.

Today I will mix the two. I will discuss how I see some of the other types.


Myers Musings: Matchmaking by Type

April 27, 2011

Inspired by comments from David Foster and Maurice on the possible evolutionary basis for seeking complementary (as compared to similar) types I decide to try my hand at Myers-Briggs matchmaking. There are several theories on type matching although all refuse to acknowledge sex differences. However tenuous my suggestions, I do at least consider that men and women are different, with different expectations.


Myers Musings: How Chicks Annoy

April 26, 2011

Any reading of game related literature will reveal the numerous ways women will seek to test and annoy their man. I certainly do not seek to deny that. However, as I said before, in Myers-Briggs terms, not all women are the same. Each type may express their perfidy in different ways.


Myers Musings: In Pictures

April 25, 2011

It is a while since I had a post with graphs. So following on from my post on the relative frequencies of female types, I present the same information in nice pictures.


Myers Musings: Not All Women Are Like That

April 23, 2011

It has always struck me that a lot of PU advice seems to describe all women as more like the ESFP party girl. While it is true that the bars and clubs where PUAs operate will probably attract a greater than expected number of ESFP, in Myers-Briggs terms, not all women are like that.


HBD: Women

April 22, 2011

I know I said that yesterday’s post was the last word, but we all know that women always have the last word.

This male blogger listens attentively . . .


HBD: Last Words

April 21, 2011

I am not entirely sure what I wanted to achieve with this series. I would guess that most of those who read this blog are already acquainted with the ideas, so it as not as if I would be teaching something new. It is certainly not because the topics remain undiscussed elsewhere. It was not even that I felt I had a particularly unique take on the themes.

So why bother?


HBD: White People

April 20, 2011

White people, they are everywhere. They are the majority of the commenters in the HBD sphere, but are less frequently the topic under discussion.

So, what can we say about this group of people? This White blogger finally gets to investigate something he might know a little about.


Atlas Shrugged and So did I

April 18, 2011

The title is from my Twiterry response to the movie [tweet]. I doubt any Randian hero would ever consider Tweeting, so here is a longer review.
