Definitive dictionary of power

OK, social credit scalper it is, thank you guys!


Quote from Stef on August 23, 2020, 12:27 am

if you find it annoying enough you could answer: "it is great to know that you fulfilled your (standard) responsibility"

I love this one!
Another more slightly subtle way is "yeah, thank you, I also always do the same, providing a clean environment is every host's responsibility"

Maybe a concept to include in the power Dictionary:

Pyrrhic victory is a victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat. Winning a Pyrrhic victory takes a heavy toll that negates any true sense of achievement or damages long-term progress.

The phrase originates from a quote from Pyrrhus of Epirus, whose triumph against the Romans in the Battle of Asculum in 279 BC destroyed much of his forces and – while a tactical victory – forced the end of his campaign.

Thank you, Stef!

Added, along the "Pyrrhic validation", such as to see a "victory" that make us feel good but does not really help us advance on more concrete goals.

Added a few more definitions relating to red-pill and collaboration VS defection.

I feel they are important for better understanding of sexual dynamics and for mens' self-development:

  • Alpha bucks : an alpha male who commits and/or provides financial support for the woman/women he has sex with.
  • Beta fucks : a non-stereotypically alpha male who gets sex, relationship, and children within a committed relationship. Most men in a relationship are beta fucks.
  • Fearful defector: he is so afraid of being cheated, that he either avoids the game altogether, or approaches the game with a mindset of "I'll cheat first" (this refers to red pill -cheat first- and MGTOW -avoid the game altogether-)

self-rejection happens when we feel someone might reject us and we reject them first.

I was thinking of a variant name for it: preemptive rejection!

in analogy to a preemptive strike.

Love it!

I added it as a subset of general "self-rejection", since one can self-reject after a long interaction, if he/she feels that the other person is being distant and acting superior.
With preemptive rejection, once can reject someone else without even have ever spoken to someone.

One strange example of preemptive rejection might even be an individual talking bad about a famous person just based on the belief that the famous person would not like them.

Some individuals are more likely to preemptively reject, including:

  • High in power (they can't stand someone might treat them as inferior)
  • High but fragile esteem: they have a high image of themselves but a big need to keep that image up, so they reject a lot of people for self-protection
  • Defensive mindset folks: they see more opportunities for status loss than for status gains

A burst of power makes some people feel good. And that’s exactly what a nasty power move is all about: nasty power moves are al about gaining short-term pleasure for the self, while sacrificing longer-term, bigger gains for both.

there is a term for this: in austrian economics they call it "high time preference", to make it more clear I rename it "high present prefference"

meaning people who value present consumption or psychic income above future consumption, according to austrian theory this alone determine the rate of interest ( the pure capitalistic gain) and in the loan market.

Thank you, Stef. Added this under "time preference".

It's a very important criterion with which to assess people.
People with a very high present preference tend to be value takers, since they blow away everything they have, and then seek to borrow and get more from others.

Added a new definition:

  • Inverted social credit scalping: it's the act of diminishing the true amount and value of the help received, as a way of decreasing one's debt.

For example, you give someone a great advice that changes their life, but they just say "oh yeah, thanks, that was helpful".
Or you find them a new great job that's an obvious improvement on their previous one, and they lie: "thanks, it pays the same as the last one, but it's a bit better".

It stems in part from a defensive mindset, and seeing more threats and potential for losses, than opportunities of making the pie bigger for everyone by doing a favor back, and then getting another favor back, etc. etc.

I'm not convinced about the name.
If anyone of you guys has a better idea, let me know.

people should already know that scalping refers to social credit, or they will have to research anyways as these new concepts requires understanding of the original.

what you describe may be used as a fair defense against social credit scalping. (counter-scalping) preemptive or posterior to the scalper attack.

or used against well deserved social credit (here it is when it becomes nasty) so it becomes: "dark reversed/inverted scalping

this second dark variety, we may call it "social credit eraser" as thats exactly what he tries to achieve
