Hi Lucio,

I have just purchased this course and loving it so far.

I have found that in the High Value Socialization module - Lesson 2 - Social Exchange II: Strategies, Techniques and Minsets, you have a duplicate #3 mindset / technique.

They are listed in the lesson as:

1: Switch to a WIIFT mindet

2: Keep some value undelivered, then ask

3: Leverage your future giving power

3: (again) Limit their losses (AKA Silver Medal Technique)

4: Protect their freedom and power (this also includes note 3.2 and another 4?)

5: Become a fair-value social marketer.

This obviously doesn't inhibit my learning in any way, I just figured it could be something you would want to know about. I only noticed because I've been talking a tonne of notes so far. Thanks again for the awesome course!

But seemingly, it wasn’t clear enough. So let me make it clear it now and hopefully we can go back to collaborating like the respectful people I believe we can be” b) under #5: “Go meta: explain why you had to enforce your boundaries, why you did wasn’t cool, etc. (in this course you will learn how to do so with collaborative, highly effective frames)” c) under 1.

Turn it into a friendly game (it takes the sting out of the denial) 2. Frame it as like you were joking an go first (the “I was joking frame” allows you to go first without losing any power and dominance points) 3. If you win and she feels bad, reward her and move on quickly (it keeps bad feeling to a minumum and moving on quickly prevents “festering”)”

And I think it’s mostly men who cluster around the average who have a bigger incentive to control women. You know, it’s a normal law of power dynamics: if a guy has a lot of options, or if he feels secure and doesn’t need anything from anyone, then why would he want to control a woman? He has no need, because he knows that he ca nfind a woman he likes and who WANTS to be with him.”; h) under 3.5: “As we’ve seen, often the highest power, most effective thing you can do is to remove words, and limit your involvement to only what further your most important goals (higher ROI).” [“further” instead of “furthers”]; i) under 4: “Not not only it’s a useless, drag-down complaint (small strike against her), but also a potentially dangerous frame.

Thank you so much Bel, this is super helpful.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

Going through PU, slowly, and learning so much. It's a pleasure to be able to return at least a bit of the value you are giving me:

  1. at the page https://thepowermoves.com/courses/power-university/lessons/frame-control-techniques/topic/self-defense/: a) under 1.2: “to make the power-aligning even more effective you can agree and thread-expand on the behavior” [first letter not capitalized]; b) under 2.2: “Keep the frame on the individual, cut out the external power (“frame individualization”): “it doesn’t matter what your parents think, this is about us, about you and I. Are you traumatized by this whole experience? [missing closing ]; c) under 2.3: “A soft version of this the “moral framing” can be found with manipulative negotiators.”; d) under 3.2: “That’s why, to stop the buck, you want to be meet people at their same level”; e) under 4: “It consisted of rejecting their frame, and shaming them by going higher” [“consisted” instead of “consists”] and “1. Refuse their frame 2. shame them … 3. cementing the frame” [“shame” instead of “Shame”, and “cementing” instead of “Cement”]; f) under 5. Frame Blocking: “When you see a frame coming, you can see multiple techniques.” [“see” instead of “use”?]; g) under 6. Meta-Framing: “Simply by explaining their games, you show a very high level of social intelligencce.”; and “when you chastise someone for being a nasty f*ck, the self frame is that you’re not a nasty fuck himself, and you do not accept nastiness -the type of eagle we talk about here-“ [“himself” instead of “yourself”]; h) under 7: “John also as an example when he used in his life after he came up with the structure” [“as” instead of “has”]; i) under 9: “(calls out the covert power move of “I’m just asking what these other people want to know).” [missing closing “];
  2. at the page https://thepowermoves.com/courses/power-university/lessons/frame-control-techniques/quizzes/frame-control-quiz/: a) answer to first question (“Her question “what you want it sex, right?” is a one-up, one-down, or one-across?”) appears to be incorrectly tagged to the button for “One-down”; b) answer to second question: “Why is he asking that, what does he mean, is she worried, is she ---” [missing end]; c) answer to last question: “It’s becasue the raw social power that this man exemplifies.”
  3. at the page https://thepowermoves.com/courses/power-university/lessons/intro-workplace-power-dynamics/topic/conflicts-of-interest-at-work/: a) “As a rule of thumb, there is more potential for conflict of interest at work than in most any other social exchange (including sexual ones)”; b) under Boss vs. Employees 3: “1. It increases your status Puts in the fast promotion track” [missing “you”]; c) under Owners vs. Employees: “They make the company’s interests” [“make” instead of “serve”] and “But while you are always empowered with more knowledge and skills, the company does not always and equally gain n all circumstances.”; e) under Old-Guard VS New Generation: “The people telling them is actually saying “look at ethically I’ve played the game and appreciate me for it”. [instead of “saying these things are” and “at how ethically”]; and “So throw them a bone, make them feel good, then frame yourself as a hard worker who “wants to be like him”, and you’ll be good to go”. [instead of “them”] and “And all the other  senior guys jumped on the chance” [missing closing “.”] and “It was my mistake, of course. the mistae was in framing the request.” and “(see what a Machiavellian power move? You make power-align with them”; f) under Individuals VS Team: “That picture says a lot about the interests of conflicts at work.” [instead of “conflicts of interest”] and “there is less money to go around for your next salary increaes.” and “But make your warmth descend from a position of superiority, as if you were already their leaders.” [instead of “leader”] and “the likelihood that your colleagues will have to shine and being” [instead of “be”]; g) under Execs VS Stakeholders: “Then, when the ship risks going down, you’ll see all the captains trying to ransack the ship, and leave everyone else to hold the bag.” [instead of “leaving”]; h) not a typo but an observation, related to the phrase “When that is the case, from a purely Machiavellian perspective, it’s best for you to work to help the bosses line up their pockets and interests, and that will help you make a great career. Then you can move somewhere else before that ship will start sinking (bad management doesn’t make for great companies)”: I would add here that one must be very careful, because many psychopathic bosses especially try to cause their employees to do illegal acts to then be able to blackmail them and hold their careers on the line.
