The Look

Donald Trump explains what makes Alphas appealing:
‘They say every powerful man is good in bed,’ I once asked Donald Trump. ‘That true?’

He smirked. ‘I think there is a certain truth to that, yes. Put it this way, I’ve never had any complaints. A lot of it is down to The Look. It doesn’t mean you have to look like Cary Grant, it means you have to have a certain way about you, a stature. I see successful guys who just don’t have The Look and they are never going to go out with great women.

‘The Look is very important. I don’t really like to talk about it because it sounds very conceited… but it matters.’
I spent well over 100 hours observing Trump in his former Celebrity Apprentice boardroom lair. First as a (winning) contestant in 2008, then as one of his advisors in every subsequent season.

He was whip-smart, very funny and brilliantly provocative at creating compelling television drama.

He was also extremely charming when he wanted to be, especially with the female contestants. Many of them, including sports stars, actresses, supermodels and rock stars, ended up melting like fawning putty in Mr Trump’s famously delicate hands.

Even the legendarily ferocious comedienne Joan Rivers used to blush from his effusive compliments. I know, because I was there and saw it happen.

Part of this was because they wanted to win, obviously, so sought his approval.

But part of it was undeniably also because Trump is genuinely at ease with women and seems to love their company – unless it’s Rosie O’Donnell - as much as they enjoy his.
What is the Look? It is the demonstration of confidence in one's inherent superiority combined with a lack of shame in one's interest in women.

Hahaha! I must have heard that one a million times. When people say that, it means they're usually not worth the effort--and they know it.

I thought women are not to complimented at all because game demands it, but Trump offers it as his persona. Being a natural alpha means you can transcend the game rulebook.

Daniel said...

No Timmy3. There's no rule that you can't compliment a woman. You can't compliment a woman in order to persuade her to like you. You absolutely can compliment a woman if you notice something exceptional about her. In fact, avoiding complimenting a woman (because of a "rule" or something) is low status. Complimenting a woman undeservedly to persuade her is low status.

Timmy3 said...

You're correct that we can compliment someone, but the rules means it has to be backhanded compliment. Also, excessive compliments will contradict another parallel game that some deploy like Dread game. No one deserves a compliment in any case so I don't know why, regardless, it would be perceived as low status.

You're sperging. They aren't rules, they're suggestions.

@S1AL, Looks like there's a class of Pharisees growing up around Game. "The Rules say..." Sheesh.

Timmy3 said...

A game without rules. That's new.

For the rules lawyers out there here's how compliments work with women.

Using compliments in order to generate attraction is a sign of weakness because it's supplication.

Using a genuine compliment after she's already made it plain she's attracted to you is very powerful stuff.

Which means you need to be able to read the indications of interest to gauge where you stand; this is part of calibration. But sadly this leaves out most of the autists out there since your social skills suck by definition.

"A game without rules. That's new."

You don't spend much time around people, do you?

Timmy3 said...

"Using compliments in order to generate attraction is a sign of weakness because it's supplication."

Not in Donald Trump's case for it appears to do two things, it cuts to the chase in the nature of the relationship. If the woman is interested, she'll be flattered and show interest. If she isn't like Joan Rivers, she'll blush and feel disarmed just the same. In any case, you'll find out where you stand. Everyone will like him and be his friend.

As for game, offering a backhanded compliments is about improving the odds that she'll go to bed with you. This part of game should be attempted too if that's your goal.

@S1A, are even playing the game?

Look at it from a pseudo-economic standpoint: Trump's compliments are valuable because they're scarce. He doesn't throw compliments left and right. On the other hand, he quickly critisises others for mistakes, thereby upping the perceived honesty and lower threshold of his compliments.

Giving women compliments aren't inherently anti-game, but you need a women to want to prove/qualify herself first. So put simply, complimenting a women can't make her attracted to you. It can also not adjust your perceived SMV anywhere but down (by showing yourself to be socially incompetent).

Cluttermonkey said...

So every compliment Trump gave these women didn't make him more attractive in their eyes, only more attainable because he gave them the time of the day.

Confidence, Money & Power are the biggest aphrodisiacs for women.

Trumps narcissism is admireable. He stands above critique, above grammar, above the law. Many people can learn a lot from him.

Timmy3 can read only his own palms. Its as close as he gets to a "girl friend"!
