2. Attempt new things. Practicing pickup as an experiment means you can try brand-new things as test cases and just observe their outcome like a good scientist, without any mental interpretation. Then the real unconditioned analysis will come naturally, and you will plainly see what works and what does not work for you.

Attempt to keep strong eye contact in all of your techniques and simply genuinely observe the result. Like an excellent researcher, don’t get related to the result. That would be more ego. This may go on for some days or be over after just a couple of approaches on the basis of your personality, openness to attempt new things, humility and finding out curve. Like an effective scientific discovery is adapted by people on a bigger scale, adjust that observation into your video game.
- ” When I kept a strong eye contact, women appeared to be beautiful attracted to me. So if I keep doing ‘that’, I will get the very same or similar outcomes all the time” This would be simply another principle made in a futile effort to comprehend the world through mind. It’s fine to utilize concepts in the start, however as you go along there should be no principles as the right action comes naturally.
- ” The scientist’s religious feeling takes the kind of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural laws, which exposes an intelligence of such superiority that in comparison with it all methodical thinking of human is an absolutely irrelevant reflection. This sensation is the directing concept of my work” Albert Einstein.
3. Get another opinion. While analyzing your recordings, an objective 3rd individual wouldn’t care whether you do excellent or bad, he/she would just observe. There is a strong recognition in the word ‘I’ and its kinds. ‘I failed the test’ or ‘She failed the test’: which would be more distressing?
4. Keep a journal. After practicing pickup, write the ‘excellent’ things and things ‘you need to enhance’, in a journal. You can not always record yourself so keeping a journal can be rather practical to become more knowledgeable about the ‘errors’ and ‘good ideas’, you have been doing during your interactions. Or you can simply audio record your mental notes.
Method 4. State of consciousness.
