Class of decision, evaluating choices

I've noticed that people always struggle to make decisions.  It's simply really, and today, I shall reveal the principles behind how I reach a decision. 

Being decisive is of paramount importance (as I learned on my cardinal crusade of gutso mentioned in the Laws of 22).  You see, many a times, people gain confidence in you not because of what you are capable of, but rather due to the brash assurance you have.  Would armies of men follow Julius Caesar into war had he shown signs of wavering?  How did Michael Jordan know when to go in to strip the ball away from his opponent?  How did my mother know when to walk away when bargaining?

When making choices/decisions, there can only be three results.

Class 1:  Gain of control, refers to when you establish command.  Improves your position.
Class 2:  Moves that result in co-operation are neutral in nature.  Status quo.
Class 3:  Moves that surrender power to others.  Weakens your position.  

Class 1 moves, in layman's terms, helps you seize the upper hand and would leave you empowered and in the driving seat.  One should always strive to execute Class 1 moves as they will allow you to assert dominance.  However, you must be sure you can deliver what you promise, otherwise, the consequences that may entail will leave you worse than a neutered cat.  As a man, promises should always be honored, regardless of the level of ridiculity.  As such, if a Class 1 decision is made, it follows that it must be upheld.  For example, when a girl asks if you have a six-pack, by affirming that you have an eight-pack instead or inviting her to check out your bod, would be considered Class 1 moves.  Note:  if you're alpha (like me), you would do both simultaneously.

Class 2 moves, being "neutral", confers an advantage to no one.   

Class 3 moves, allot authority to others.  This is generally shelfed under "weak".  It puts you in a "beggar" position.  You forgo your right to make the choice to others.  For instance:  someone asks you where you want to go for lunch and you reply with "anything". 

Now, obviously, the good decisions usually belongs to Class 1.  The acceptable choices fall into Class 2.  Bad decisions will go under Class 3. 

Yet, it is critical to know that it is not always possible, in fact, it will appear fake and thus, detrimental, to always make Class 1 decisions.  Furthermore, it will stress out even the toughest studs to dominate every single facet of life.  It is of importance to know what you care about (more on this in a later article; The Solo Theorem) and focus on them.  Certain decisions have no ultimate bearing and are just "process steps" and should not have any interference.   

Life is like fishing.  Putting the bait (feeding), is a Class 3 move, but if played right, it will evolve into a Class 1 result.

Shoot, score, smile.

Understanding The Hotness Ladder, Part I-Testosterone Rationalizing Index (TRI)

For sound comparisons to exist, there must be a standard unit of judgment.  Since the beginning of time, there has been very effective ways of classifying many objects and articles, but the female specimen remains one of the hardest to be put into categories in a fair and agreeable manner.

There are many different adjectives that can be used to describe a lady-cute, pretty, sexy, sweet.  This bring rise to many problems, including as to which adjective should hold more water in the subject.  For instance, some believe that cuteness will last forever; yet some also believe there will be a point (or day) when you eventually get sick of the "cuteness".

Fret no more, the Testosterone Rationalizing Index (also known as TRI), shall serve as a lighthouse to the misguided.  It is a scientific method of assigning the female species into specific groups.  It will serve to diminish variations in definitions and reduce confusion and misleads.

The above picture is the Testosterone Rationalizing Index.  Allow me to explain.  With this index, we shall divide girls into 4 different categories.  The first category would be "CMI girls".  This group of girls would be those whom you absolutely have no sexual interest with.  You could spend a night alone in a room with them without the slightest sign of any lust.  Category 2 girls would be girls whom are average-looking.  They are girls whom you would bang, but then again, they're a dime and a dozen.  Category 3 girls are girls who are B'N'B-bang and brag.  These girls are considered pretty under my definition.  They are heads-motioners.  They caused heads to turn and heads (you know which one) to rise.  They are capable of raising your horniness level easily.  Category 4 girls are a class of their own.  They can, and should be referred to HBB-Heavenly Blessed Beauties.  They are evidence of a divine being's existence.  They are probably the ones who can give you the oneitsis feeling.  You would drag your balls over shards of broken glass just to see her smile...and so I digressed.

Notice that the lines are of different thickness.  The thicker line separating categories 3 and 4 is representative that it is extremely difficult for a girl in category 3 to be "promoted" into category 4.  Conversely, this also mean it is not easy for a category 4 girl to slip back into being a category 3.  Inflows and outflows are very limited, in fact, a rarity.  The category 4 is a very prestigious ranked group, reserved only for the true elite.  This explains why it has a relatively thinner column compared to other categories.

Now notice that the line separating categories 2 and 3 is a dotted line.  This signifies a partially permeable membrane that allows more motion/transfer between the two categories.  In other words, there is (figuratively and literally) just a very fine line separating the two categories.  A better mood might just push a category 2 girl to category 3; while an unfortunate event that fouls your day may just caused some category 3 girls to suddenly drop a rung to category 2.  There is a looser definition for girls falling within these bands.

Crude and superficial?  Let's get real for a moment.  Men are driven by two heads.  One lies on his neck, the other, somewhere below his waistline.  It would be plain stupid to ignore this fact.  Application of this has propelled this index as a scientifically-backed theorem.  It would be ironically, superficial, to not take into account, factors that are deemed to be superficial.  As long as you have emotions, then one will be subjected to favouritism, and therefore affected by physical outlook as well.  Why do you think young kids fight with each other to get hold of the certain color of toy?  Furthermore, I have never said to established anything compelling just based on TRI.

Discerning readers would have noticed that the title of this entry suggested a "Hotness Ladder".  The Hotness Ladder, is the complete way to assess a female.  The TRI only effectively rank a girl's physical attributes.  There are two aspects to determine if a girl is "hot"-physical and personality.  The physical aspect can, and should be, effectively concluded by the TRI; while the personality aspect, would be covered in another entry.  In the meantime,

The Laws of 22

I am sure plenty of you have heard of the Murphy’s Law, but today, I shall preach of the Laws of 22.

A few months ago, I embarked on a titillating expedition, which sadly, did not end well.  However, I did picked up a few important lessons, which now constitute to the Laws of 22.  May I present to you, in no particular order.

Lesson 1:  Regardless of age, there are some habits that the female species will never grow up from.  For instance, ladies are incapable of going to the washroom alone.

Lesson 2:  Always be prepared to play into overtime.

Lesson 3:  If you’re intending on a covert operation, any preparations you have to partake in should not be within close proximity of your home.

On my cardinal crusade of gutso; I was maimed by an incomplete comprehension of the first percept, left wandering indiscriminately due to a lack of anticipation and nearly manifested in an undermining fashion as a result of not being sufficiently fastidious.

These three lessons, while seemingly simple and straightforward, will bring you far if you exercise consistency and compliance with them.  The first lesson helps you to understand and decipher the complex mind of the female specimen.  The second lessons stresses the importance of over-preparation.  The final lesson imparts how crucial exercising caution can be.

And oh, actually, there’s a fourth lesson.  I have the makings of a poet.

The Mee Rebus Anecdote and Volcano Mindset Function-Why girls become hotter when they are attached.

I remember years ago when I was still in high school; there was a cold rainy Monday morning.  The day started off with an hour lecture, and needlessly to say, by the time it was over, I was cold, cold and cold.  Now I know this sounds like a faggotry, but at that point in time, all I wanted was some warm food.  So I proceed to the canteen; when I saw a friend of mine, eating a plate of mee rebus.

And that there and then, I suddenly felt a craving for mee rebus.

This is the Mee Rebus Anecdote, and this facilitates a very important phenomenon-we always want something that others have.

This has been true since ancient times and applies for Man young and old.  Do you remember the times when you fought with your cousins for the same toy?  Was the toy really that awesome?  Or did you just want it because he had it?  What was so appealing about conquests?  Ok, granted, it is darn cool to lead an army and kick ass, but it was also the fact that you’re taking away something from others, that drove Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Napoleon Bonaparte and many more great conquerors to endure harsh conditions and capture acres and acres of land.

And gentlemen, this is one of the two reasons why girls who are attached, are hotter than when they are not.

Before we delve into the second reason, it is important to be aware how the human mind works.  The human mind works in a similar way as a volcano.  Yes, you heard that right, a volcano.  The human mind has three states: active, dormant and sub-conscious(not extinct). In the active state, one is aware of his thoughts.  For instance, you would be mugging your ass off to pass your exams.  The dormant state can be likened to a cooling off period.  In this state, a previous activity/thinking/philosophy is put on hold.  However, it has been displayed before, and can be displayed again.  The final state, the sub-conscious state, is something that one has never displayed before, but it resides within.  It is manipulative from within, and rarely rears its head externally.  This concept is otherwise known as the Volcano Mindset Function.

We can now explore the second reason; work of the mind.

When we see a girl walking with a guy, she automatically gains additional points.  From the perspective of the “active state”, there is no difference.  Likewise for the dormant state.  However, our sub-concious state goes into overdrive.  When we see an unattached girl, the mind enjoys an initial perk-the spark of chance.  However, this is quickly dissolved by the thought of why is she single and difficulties(if you’re a pussy, and let’s face it, at some point, we all have had been a wuss).  The former is a very dangerous pitfall.  When we see a single girl, our sub-conscious mind will work overtime to ponder why is she single.  On the antithesis, when we see an attached girl, our sub-conscious starts feeding us on thoughts of how the girl is wife-material, dutiful and other signs of compatibility.  This will, of course, bring her up a few rungs on the “hotness ladder”.

Note that the above information does not contradict the oneitis syndrome mentioned in my previous blog post.  The oneitis syndrome is prompted not be the sense, but rather, by a mixture of clouded judgement and feelings.

Does this means that attached girls are automatically hotter than the single ladies?  Well, no.  The Mee Rebus Anecdote and Volcano Mindset Function only serve to explain why a girl becomes hotter than their previous self when they are attached.  So brethren, go ahead and use the pick-up line of “we would be a perfect 10 together”.

*Common folklore of girls looking hotter when they’re in love because love makes them more radiant is not utter bullshit, but it is, by no mean, a huge factor.  The real underlying stimulus is the grind of the sub-conscious mind.

Shoot, score, smile.

The Linger Theorem

Before we begin, there is a need to explain three terms: crush, infatuation and oneitis.

Crush, is when a guy, has a fondness for a girl.  However, the image of a crush can be broken easily.  For instance, if said girl digs her nose in public, then the whole crush image would probably just fall apart.

Infatuation, obviously, is a higher level.  When aforementioned girl starts digging her nose in public, involved guy instead, says hey, it doesn’t look that bad, in fact, it’s kinda cute and funny.

Oneitis, as the name suggests, is basically a strong feeling that a girl, is the one it is.  Well, this is pretty obvious huh.  The special one.  The one whom you want to spend the rest of your life with.  The one whom you would be willing to march 72km in full battle order; under the sweltering heat while being flogged by a 18th century slave driver every other 20 seconds just to see her smile.  More realistically, traveling 3 hours end enduring a sure traffic jam just to catch glimpses of her sideways. It’s not a made-up word.  This word has already made its way to the urban dictionary.  When the oneitis girl  reveals unshaven armpits (apparently for months), said guy would defend and say something like I haven’t shave my pubes for months either.

The problem with oneitis is that in a case of oneitis, imaginary facts are weaved to protect and further complement the oneitis feel.

What is the Linger Theorem then?  The Linger Theorem asserts that whenver a guy has a oneitis girl, he will inadvertently start comparing any girl that is remotely close to starting an intimate relationship with him with the oneitis girl.  This shall also be known as “The Linger”.

There are actually ten reasons why the Linger Theorem occurs.  However, in compliance to the Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 Rule…wait, you’re unaware of the Pareto Principle?  The Pareto Principle states that 80% of happenings is due to 20% of causes.  For instance, 80% of the wealth is held by 20% of the people.  80% of diseases are caused by 20% of the genetic mutations.  Incessantly, I shall continue to state the two, alright, I shall be generous, three reasons why the Linger Theorem takes place.

The first reason, is habit.  Have you ever wonder why people keep patronizing the same hawker stall?  It’s not just because the food is tasty.  The thing is, habit.  When a customer decides that the food is of acceptable quality, he/she decides to make it a pattern, or rather, a routine, to purchase from that stall.  A routine breeds familiarity and familiarity leads to comfort and a sense of security.  You change the bank of a veteran banker and he would still get some first-day jitters.

Why then do people say the only constant is change?  Firstly, that is bullshit.  Relating back to the Pareto Principle again, 80% of the changes in the world are actually created by 20% of the people (successful).  Secondly, you must be naive to believe people follow motivational posters 100% of the time.  Even those who claim in their Myers Briggs Test that they abhor a schedule, they do need a routine.  That someone who claims he cannot stand a scheduled timetable and needs to be running around meeting clients, making things happen, etc etc, is unknowingly, part of a routine.  Quite simply, his is just a more flexible routine.  While a cubicle worker’s routine would be to report for work, type report, lunch, type report, tea-break, type report and then knock off, our “freedom hero”‘s daily plan would be: get ready for work, meet client, lunch/meet client for lunch, meet another client, tea-break/maybe meet client for tea-break, rest and maybe meet client at a bar.  Close examination at the most spectral level will still provide a skeleton of a routine.

People like to feel comfortable.  After building up your perfect girl, ala your oneitis, it would becoming to have the habit to decide that no one else is better, or worse, even close.  This happens everywhere.  When a new product is launched, huge amounts of money are poured in for promotion.  Why?  We do not like to adopt new ways nor ideas; this further solidifies the “habit behaviour”.  When comparing sports legend, why do you think older fans always defend their idols so fiercely and refusing any propositions put forward by the younger generation?  Again, it’s by force of habit.  They have been accustomed to think that their heroes are the best, and it would be difficult to change that.

The second reason, is self-fulfilling prophecy.  No one likes to admit he is wrong, or deluded.  Throughout the history of time, many armies were wiped because generals refused to put a stop to their conquest.  Aforementioned generals refused to believe that they have made mistakes and taken it a step too far.  A modern-day example would be stocks.  The buyer refuses to believe that he has made an erroneous decision and he should pull out to cut losses.  He continues to cling on stubbornly to the belief that his stocks would bounce back (which sometimes happens), to the point even putting even more money in (note I said putting, not investing).  After creating such a perfect fantasy setting for your oneitis girl, it is pretty stupid to shoot oneself in the foot by acclaiming that she isn’t the one.  Therefore, you continue to assert that she is the one and believe so.

Comparison is the third basis for the Linger Theorem.  Humans like to compare.  This is not a modern day issue.  It dates back even to the tribal times.  The strongest hunter is made chieftain.  You see, it’s human nature to want to vie.  This makes the primary reason why people become unhappier as one grows up, but this is a topic that I would not dwell on today.  With girls, it’s the same.  I have no idea about you, but I want to be able to be proud of my girl.  It is inevitable that you would compare whatever new specimen of the female species presented back to the oneitis girl.

So how do we rise above the Linger Theorem?  There are three possible aspects to explore when attempting to defeat “The Linger”: natural, physical and mental.

The natural way to cure “The Linger” is to well, by allowing Father Time to work his magic.  The dogma that time will heal all wounds holds water in this setting.  As a child, have you ever lost your favourite toy (maybe it was taken away from you by a bully, in which case, jakes on you, loser)?  Well, I’m certain you felt better after awhile; although invariably, a new and better one might have helped.  The time taken for this natural cure is directly proportional to the time spent formulating fantasies of oneitis girl.

The second way, would be via physical means.  To go right up to aforementioned oneitis girl and confess.  There are two general conclusions: happy ending or a slap across the face.  However, the chances of the former occurring are pretty much close to nil, which is why “The Linger” has set in anyway.  Should the latter be the circumstance you are caught in, the next course of action have three paths: the “oh-well-whatever” path, the “her loss, bitch” passage and the slump-where you enter a state of depression, a pretty definitive characteristic of a faggot.

The final method of cure would be via the work of the mind, mental.  Research shows that the average human barely uses 1% of his brain capacity.  Einstein used close to 3%.  Imagine what could happen if we were to fully tap on our brain potential!  However, that is not the key concern right now.  Now, in the case of oneitis, the mind often conjures pleasant but inaccurate, or rather, false perceptions of said girl.  It is thus, very crucial to destroy the 10/10 image of said girl.

How do we achieve that goal?  There is a need to focus on her flaws.  No one is perfect.  Not even me.  If you’re too deluded to figure out what flaws she might have, it would be wise to consult with friends.  Once you have those flaws, you need to explicitly remind yourself of those flaws daily.

Yet this is a very challenging process.  Case study: myself.  When I was younger, I thought that having a tattoo would be cool.  I was seriously thinking of getting my name tattoo-ed across my forearm at one point in time.  However, of recent, I have changed my mind about it, not quite to the extreme, but to the point of turn-off.  So my oneitis girl has a tattoo on her left arm.  I decided to apply this tactic.  Ideally, I was hoping for:

Day 1-”She has a tattoo.”
Day 2-”She has a tattoo.”
Day 3-”She has a tattoo.”
Day 4-”She has a tattoo.”

Unfortunately, reality:
Day 1-”She has a tattoo.  A really small tattoo.  A really really small tattoo.  A really really small tattoo that would be covered if we held hands!”

In my defence, it was a really small tattoo; and yes, I would bet my last penny that if I pulled her close to me, it would be fully covered.

This is not an easy feat.  Let’s face it.  “The Linger” is not an easily slain monster.  Let there be reality.  When you moved from primary school to secondary school, you compared your school days.  When you moved on to JC, you compared your school days again.  Hell, you might even have traced back and compared your school days in JC against when you were in primary school.

Shoot, score, smile.
