Power University Alumni Results Survey

The Power University Survey measures the results that the Power University course delivers for its alumni.

In this article, we describe the survey and present the results.

The Power University Results Survey is a 10-question survey with multiple options answers.

The respondents rate the improvement they achieved with Power University on 9 relevant competencies.

Rationale for self-rating

We chose a self-rating approach based on skill increase because one, we are considering a separate longer-term longitudinal study based on results.

And two, because the evidence from the research literature shows that people are quite accurate in assessing traits -ad we expect them to be even better at that after PU’s training-.


The survey collects data from Power University alumni, via three different invitation channels.

All of the respondents are Power University alumni. But we decided to have a separate survey for each invitation channel and not to merge the data into one single survey because each channel targets different types of students.

The three invitations have been sent to:

  • Community members, published in the forum

  • Power University email subscribers, sent out via email to Power University alumni who signed up one month before our email date (21 June 2023) and after we started tagging alumni in our email delivery software (July 2021).
    We only sent it to alumni older than a month because we wanted respondents with a minimum time to learn and experience the material

  • Power University completers, with a link to our survey that goes out together with a “congratulations” email only to those who mark every lesson as complete.
    Since the survey is recent and only invites future completers, we’ll share those results once there is enough data. Hence, we will focus on the first two cohorts.

The Different Cohorts

As mentioned, we kept the surveys differentiated for each channel because each cohort is slightly different.

Particularly, we expect them to be different in their levels of involvement, their effort to learn and improve, and how far they’ve come with Power University’s material.

For example, I expect forum users, on average, have put more time and effort into learning the material compared to non-forum users.
I’d also expect them, on average, to respond more and to be more careful with their replies because they may feel closer, more familiar, and/or more indebted to TPM for our history on the forum (and/or via calls/in-person interactions).
That can address several forms of common response biases.
On the other hand, our previous history may also make them potentially a bit more positively biased in their replies.

I expect respondents from the emails to be more of a mixed bag instead.
Many of them will not have finished PU, some may have only skimmed the lesson, and their level of dedication will be highly variable, including on the lower end of the spectrum.

Differences Among Surveys

The surveys are similar except for swapping one single question from a multi-response one on intimate relationships to a qualitative one on motivations to join Power University.

We decided so to better adapt to the different target groups in order to get better data.

For example, we wanted to have more qualitative data for the email respondents because we expected them to be more of a mixed bag, and potentially to provide less reliable and more biased responses.
So we removed one question (improvements on intimate relationships) to ask one more qualitative question (“what made you join Power University).

Data Cleaning: Removed Responses

We removed two responses.

Response Bias

One of them was a response set where the respondent selected the first option across the whole survey.

We decided to remove it as a likely biased response -either a response set passively selecting the first option, or a case of “dissent bias”-.

There was the option to try to contact the respondent, but we decided to keep responses unlinked from other respondents’ data such as email.

Lacking Enough PU Involvement

The other removed response was from a responder who hadn’t yet taken advantage of PU.
Interestingly enough, he himself suggested sending a reminder later on.
See a picture here:

Respondent (paraphrasing): Be aware I stopped the lesson for family issues and now getting back into it. Maybe resend this when I’m further along in the course

The respondent went ahead and filled out the survey anyway.
But because of that information, we removed his responses from the aggregate results.


Now, what everyone was waiting for:

The results.

Please note that for the charts we will be using the charts from the forum survey results and give you the aggregate in number form.

1. Self-Confidence

Question: How much more confident in yourself are you after Power University? 

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

And among community members:

95% of our respondents increased their confidence, and everyone increased his confidence among our community members.
85% at least doubled their confidence level, and more than half of our respondents increased their confidence by at least 10x.

2. Social Skills

Question: How much have your social skills improved after Power University?

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

And among community members:

Everyone improved his social skills, 85% at least doubled their social skills, and more than half increased their social skills by at least 10 times.

3. Gaining Status

Question: How much more effective would you be today to gain status in a group?

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

And among community members:

Everyone improved his ability to gain status, 89.5% at least doubled, and more than half increased their ability to gain status by at least 10 times.

4. Gaining Respect

Question: How much better would you be today in getting respected by others?

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

And among community members:

Everyone increased his ability to gain other people’s respect by at least 2 times, and more than half by at least 10 times.

5. Leadership Skills

Question: How much better of a leader would you be today?

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

And among community members:

Everyone improved his leadership skills, close to 90% at least doubled their leadership skills, and more than 60% increased their leadership skills by at least 10 times.

6. Business & Career

Question: How much has Power University impacted your chances of getting a promotion or doing better in work/business?

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

And among community members:

Almost 90% of our respondents will do better in work and business, close to 80% will do at least 2 times better, more than half will do at least 10 times better, and 42% will do more than 10 times better.

7. Attractiveness (For Dating)

Question: If you’re single, how has Power University made you potentially more attractive?

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

And among our community members:

Close to 90% of our respondents are more attractive, close to 80% are at least two times more attractive, more than half are at least 5 times more attractive, and more than one-third are 10 times more attractive.

8. Relationships

Question: If you’re in a relationship, how much has Power University helped to gain more respect, attraction, and a generally better relationship?*

Among our community members:

Close to 80% of our respondents at least doubled their partner’s attraction and respect for them, and more than half of our respondents increased their partner’s respect and attraction by at least 5 times.

*this question was only for the forum users, and only for those who are or can think of themselves in a relationship.
We had to correct an initial mistake after the first response, and the first response was “not at all” (we suspect it may be due to our original mistake, but we left it there).

9. Reading people

Question: How much have your people reading skills increased?

=A bit2X5x10x>10x

Among our community members:

Everyone at least doubled his ability to read and assess other people’s character, and 65% increased it by at least 10 times.

This question is more about competence than the end result.
A question such as “how better are your life relationships” would instead focus more on the end results.
We decided to focus on competence because the end results may take longer to materialize and a premature measurement would unduly underestimate the actual life results.
Plus, this is a case where competence and actual results likely have a strong positive correlation. Most people who can assess a bad or manipulative character can rely on an innate sense of self-preservation to distance themselves. And the opposite is also true.

Power University Satisfaction

How satisfied are you with Power University?

The available response range from 0 to 10, and this is the result in bar chart:

Lucio’s Personal Comments

I expected good results of course.

But I was still surprised at how often the option “more than 10x” was selected.
While I expected it to be selected at least a few times, “more than 10x” was the most commonly picked response across the whole survey.

I also thought that some competencies were underestimated relative to others.

For example, respondents rated themselves comparatively lower in their capability to gain status in groups as opposed to their gains in personal confidence, social skills, and ability to gain people’s respect.
I believe this may be due to people’s underestimation of what can be done with the acquired skills, and to a knee-jerk reaction to what sounds more challenging -ie.: “gaining status”-.
Instead, same as for a woman’s love and devotion, status happens naturally when you have the foundations in place.
So if you feel more confident, if you are more socially skilled and power-aware, and are better at getting respect individually, then you also already have all in place to gain status in groups.

The same goes for intimate relationships.
Once you have the foundational blocks of skills and mindsets, then more respect and attraction follow naturally.

It’s possible some respondents may later on experience so in their life. And then their own self-ratings would further increase, together with even more self-confidence.

Finally, the incredible achieved outcomes make the otherwise very high overall satisfaction seem comparatively low.
Such as: it may feel odd to give anything less than 10 to a program that has more than doubled some of one’s most foundational life skills.
I believe this may be because Power University is designed for results, rather than entertainment. So when the respondent looked back, he also looked back to what may have felt like “studying” and “applying oneself”.

So in future versions, I will be working to also add a layer of entertainment with more videos, rewards, and improved user interface.

Qualitative Feedback

Finally, we told our email alumni they could also reply to the email for a more unstructured response.

We only had positive email responses, including:

Respondent: I have not finished going through the entirety of PU but I have already benefited tremendously (…) I have improved very significantly in coming across as more powerful.
I think it’s the best material in terms of self development I have come acrosss so far

Respondent: I have found Power University to be the single best investment I have ever made in myself

Future Developments

We’re on a mission to provide wisdom that will help good men around the world win at life for generations to come.
And for that, we never stop improving.

Power University Developments Following The Survey Results

At the time of writing (July 2023), this is our first survey.

It was done when Power University version was at its 8.2 version, albeit since we often update the course, it’s fair to guess that several respondents shared their experience of previous Power University versions.

We are going to incorporate the survey results to make Power University even better for future releases, and deliver even more value.

Survey Developments

We may also improve the survey by taking into account our alumni’s feedback and the data analyst’s advice.

The survey and this article have been cross-checked by a certified data analyst.
