YouTube channels to learn from

Playing With Fire

Solid guy with a solid grasp of dating power dynamics.

Was positively  surprised to see we share many views, including:

  • Some PUAs over-game (he's got a good review on Todd, albeit I think Todd is a great guy to learn from and he over-criticizes him)
  • Many red pill coaches bring men up only to a certain level (ceiling effect), otherwise mislead them -especially when it comes to actual game and dating skills: as a rule of thumb: don't learn game from red pill coaches-

I was glad of seeing him highlight some poor mindsets and distance from the red pill and RSD when it comes to actual game
At times I've felt like I was the only one railing -and not making any inroads- on my own.

And more:

  • RSD had some good stuff but for sure isn't -and wasn't- the best place to learn game and dating effectiveness
  • AMS and many others focusing on "alpha male game" have some really poor dating advice (seen on this forum an example)
  • Effective game is generally simple and natural-looking, and based on good social skills

I've been searching for a lot of infields and real-life examples and the guys who strike me as good models to learn proper game and social / power dynamics. And there aren't that many.
He's one of the good ones.

It's one of the up and coming dating company. (There is another person by name Nitin/IndianPE who works along with Alex in the same channel, personally I feel Alex is way more level headed and calm though).

There is another called the "Ultimate Man Project" though they use a lot of manipulation tactics.

Yeah, and albeit it could be a coincidence, there was also a very similar video:

TPM:

Playing With Fire:

Including the contrast in both videos between Julien and how Trump framed control when under attack.
That seemed a bit too "coincidence" to be a pure coincidence.

But even if he saw TPM first and took some inspiration, whatever, he made it far better in the end with the higher quality video production and still a solid channel.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

Conversation skills are something I am always working on and look at every opportunity to improve it.

The only other way other than socialization I have come across to get pointers to improve on my conversation skills is through podcasts.

Some podcast I like to listen to in this respect are.

1) First We Feast

The playlist of 'Hot Ones' hosted by Sean Parker is admired by many celebrities who come there and have told that he asks very good questions.

2) Theo Von

Mentioned by Charisma on command on his videos and is a good listener who is not over the top.

3) Andrew Schulz

Has good humour in his podcasts (well he is a comedian so this is a strong point). Helps sharpen your humour.

What other podcasts or resources do you use to improve conversation skills?

Hi Guys!

Continuing the "legal" trend, here's the best video I ever saw about the power dynamics of "innocent conversations" with the police when one is a suspect.

It's aptly titled "Don't talk to the police":

Good channel to learn about lawyer power dynamics, court-room persuasion (and general persuasion).

Example of a video reviewing the Depp VS Heard case:

Edit:

It's unfortunate and frankly, it looks quite ridiculous that he's talking there with a big revolver sitting by his desk (or at least, it looks like that to most folks outside of the US 😀 ).
But the content is good.

I just discovered this YouTube channel on body language.

This video seems very well done and well analyzed.
It includes references from The 48 Laws of Power (albeit I found myself disagreeing with some of those references in favor of what PU might've recommended) together with the power moves the characters use.

TPM's resources list is probably the best starting place (and, thanks to PU, I already knew much of what he was noting and more), so maybe that should be the first priority for most readers here. Then, when one has reached a good level, this channel might be a good place to go for that little bit extra (though, I'd have to watch more of his videos before I can confirm that).

Thank you for sharing this, Ali!

It's very helpful because I wouldn't normally watch these types of analyses unless someone I trust recommends it, so I may miss out on something good.

And yes, it's quite good.
Albeit that's what get views on YB, I'm generally not a fan of analyzing TV shows like this one as they tend to be overly dramatized and not very much "real life", but he does a good job at it.

Most of those "PUA" only have average PUA skills. The reason is very, very simple: if those "PUA" are super successful with woman, why are they still doing the male market not the female market? Women are much more likely to spend money irrationally, and they contributed more than 90% of online purchases.

As someone who've been researching financial scams for years, I know a few team of "love-scammers". They scam both male and female. If a man falls in love, they can at most get some money out of their pocket. For example, if the man make 1000k per year, they could probably get 100k from that man. However, if the target is a woman, she will loss not only all her saving but also all her credit-line by "investing" the fake financial product introduced by her "lover".

The fact that those "PUA" are still trying to make money from average male is more than enough to prove that their actual PUA skill is at most average; or, alternatively, we can safely say that their skill in picking up male is much higher than their skill in picking up female.

 

Re: Ali, thank you very, very, very much for the body language video. I am searching for similar body language resources recently. I was thinking about Adam Lyon's body language videos "kinetic attraction". If any of you happened to know about the person or his videos, please do comment about it. Thanks in advance! It will help my decisions.
