Hello + Updates (What I'm Doing, Where & Why)

Vietnam, or at least Saigon, is not my favorite city.
Later on I'll make a proper entry in the "travel" new section.

Now about The Power Moves:

Updating the "Dating Power Dynamics" Ebook

In the next days I will be focusing on the ebook "Dating Power Dynamics".

I will add some new theoretical information that I acquired in my recent and ongoing binging on evolutionary psychology.
But most of all, I want to make it more practical.

That ebook must be an overview of concentrated theory and "what the theory means to the readers". So I will be adding some sort of "do this / what it means to you" on each section for practical and actionable advice.

This will be my sole focus in the next days.
Once it's done, as usual, I will also be emailing the upgraded version to everyone who has already bought it.

Then, I will start updating and upgrading the course Social Power.

What I'm Reading

Still listening to "Behave".
That book is not only great, but also very long. And it's taking me a bit longer than usual as I listen twice to the good parts. Plus I use audiobooks a bit less frequently during travels.

I am reading "Evolutionary Psychology" by David Buss, which is a university manual on evolutionary psychology, so it provides a solid overview.

In the meanwhile, you can check the list of best evolutionary psychology books.

5 intense days of work and I'm done updating "Dating Power Dynamics".

I'm quite happy with that ebook.
It might be my favorite ebook on this website.

This is the message that went out to the customers together with the updated version.


Hi there,

I am sending you an updated version of "Dating Power Dynamics".

The new parts are:
  • The Sexual Marketplace (chapter 1)
This part analyzes all the traits that men and women seek in a mate.
It combs several of the best evolutionary psychology books to give you a quick overview of what people offer and demand in the sexual marketplace.
Some of this stuff you know for sure and it will not be new, but some other traits be more surprising (how high kindness ranks and the #1 position for loyalty in a large survey).
  • Evolved Tools of Sexual Conflict (chapter 3)
The interests of men and women diverge sometimes, and both genders evolved some tools and techniques to take advantage of each other.
This chapter reviews what those adaptations are.
It's a slightly more information-rich version of the public post "sexual conflict", so if you read that post you can skip it. Otherwise, it can provide some helpful information.
  • What influences Sexual Market Value (chapter 4)
New chapter, it combines some bits that were previously scattered and adds some new information.
It quickly reviews how one's sexual market value varies depending on variables such as gender ratio, personality, culture, children, state (socialist VS laissez-faire).
Some of those variables we can easily change, so there is some important practical takeaway there.

Next: Social Power Upgrade

Next, I will be working on updating and upgrading Social Power.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

I am now in Bangkok, and I really like the city.

This is what I've done and what I'm doing ThePowerMoves-wise

SMV & SMP Articles

I posted a few articles on sexual market value.

They were quick to prepare as they are excerpts from the book "Dating Power Dynamics".

I think too many authors focus too much on this idea of "being high value" that they somehow forget that personal value is also relative. Sometimes the swings of sexual market value can be wild, and that's something you can easily take advantage of.

Check:

But of couse, most elements of "high value" are the same everywhere, and you are never wrong working on them.
For an overview, check out:

And for the major inter-gender dynamics, check:

Social Power Upgrades

I'm still working on updating and upgrading Social Power.

Adding more real-life examples, making it better and even more practical.

I might do a 10% off for Black Friday, but I am also planning to increase the price once done with the updates. I need to improve the marketing, but after having taken countless courses I think it is very under-priced.

Next Up

Next I will finally work on an article on frames and frame control.

And then a few more articles on SMP and dating, both more theoretical such as "the judge role in dating" and more practical, such as "handling cocklockers".

Nice Lucio, enjoy your trip to Bangkok and look forward to the day when you can come to Taiwan and experience the culture here. Cheers!

Myyy man :).

Hopefully when it's a bit more towards summer, Taiwan is not the warmest in winter, right?
I was there a few years back but was unlucky: it rained the whole damn week 🙂

Traveling to Chian Mai now.

Suuuch a lovely city.

On the website:

Dating Strategies

I wrote two new articles on dating strategies based on hard science:

I am really happy with the content of those two articles, I think they truly combine science with what's effective in the real-world.

And so I added them to Social Power as well, with more details and practical applications in the lesson to provide more value to the customers (so if you want to go through them and have access to Social Power, check them there).

What I'm Reading

I have finished "How the Mind Works" by Steven Pinker and I'm wrapping up "Evolutionary Psychology" by David Buss.

Summaries will follow soon.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

Finally I'm done summarizing and extracting information from a few crucial books:

Especially Buss, it took me months.
There was just too good information that I had to leverage, so I started getting into his research papers as well.

Thanks to the work of Buss and Sapolsky I significantly upgraded both "Dating Power Dynamics" and "Social Power".

I also read summarized:

Next Up

Now I'm gonna start working on version 5 of Dating Power dynamics, and then send it to the customers, one by one. A tedious and time-wasting process, but that I must do.

I need to send the update one by one because I realized I had done a mistake: read the "entrepreneurship" latest forum entry for more.

Cheers!

I'm now in Jakarta, Indonesia.

My second time here and unless you're into malls as attractions, I can definitely recommend you avoid the place :).

Anyway, about the interesting stuff:

2 New Book Categories

I launched two new book categories:

  • Red Pill category

Focused on intersexual dynamics.
But while most red pill literature is actually manosphere, this one includes all intersexual dynamics, including actual science and, as well, feminist or leftist literature -yes, there can be something there, too-.

  • Critical-Thinking category

And old pet-peeve of mine.

Critical thinking is one of the most important mental faculty one can develop.
It will help to discern true high quality informaiton from mediocre one, good authors from biased ones, and what's fashion from what's true.

And, finally, it it boosts self-development when you turn that critical-thinking lens towards yourself.

Updated Summaries and Reviews

I updated the pages of "book summaries" and "book reviews", something I had been planning for a while.

Plus, I promised to myself to update them now every time I review one new book, becuase doing it in batches is inefficient.

Dating Power Dynamics

I am having the file converted to .mobi and .epub manually, which should result in a much better reading experience.

Then I will send the updated file to the previous customers.

I'm in Indonesia now.
Been to Yogyakarta first, now Jakarta, and will write a bit more about both of them in the travel section.

The Power Moves

Dating Power Dynamics is taking a bit longer.

I am doing a proper conversion to epub and mobi, and that takes some adjustment.
And I decided to make an audiobook out of it. It's read by Google voice, but I think it's a good quality result.

It takes some work though.
I realized that making an audiobook takes a lot of fixing, so now I'm working on the document so that it can be properly read.

What I'm Reading

I have just finished "Enlightenment Now" by Steven Pinker and "Mate" by Miller and Tucker Max.

Very different books, but both 5 stars.
I think will give "Mate" the first spot in the "best dating books for guys" list.
