My boss has this little thing where he’ll have a discussion with someone else in the office and then out of the blue yell…
“Right Mack?” in an obnoxious manner.
I have no clue what they are talking about or what I am to agree to.
I used to think nothing of it and just yell back “Right Mike!” like a lemming…
But once I started learning more about the seduction community, I started thinking about what was really going on there.
One could say this is just a simple social “ping”… but I think there is more to it…
One could say it is just a “test” to see if I’m compliant as a subordinate… but I think it would be a stupid test considering I didn’t even know what I was to be agreeing to…
I really think it is a form of him “AMOGing” me (”AMOGing” basically means showing others that he is the stronger and more dominant male in the environment). He basically shows to the office that I’m his “YES” man… his dancing monkey.
What makes this hard is the Manager/Subordinate arrangement that we are in. It is quite obvious as far as the company goes he really is the alpha male over me. I recognize that arrangement and obey it by all means…
BUT I think this does not fall upon those confines.
When he continued to do it, it started to annoy me.
I started by saying “WRONG!” but realized that was not the right method.
It caused friction and oozed of defiance. Defiance is the same as being defensive in my book and if you have been reading this blog for any amount of time you know how I think that being defensive is one of the worst ways guys fail tests made by women.
Next, I tried just ignoring him and letting it hang. I continued being focused on my work as if he said nothing to me.
This made me seem like a social leper. It made me seem like either I was too overly engrossed in my work to answer or I was a stuck up dick and would not respond. Both were not what I was aiming for.
Finally today I think I found my perfect balance…
I shifted my full attention to him giving him strong eye contact. I gave a brief pause and then said…
“Hey Mike! How’s it going?” in a strong, confident tone.
I like it because it acknowledges him yet ignores his compliance test. Then I throw back an acceptable open-ended question that he should answer if he wants to obey the social pinging that he started.
I think the key to this is that just because you are in a superior/subordinate position with someone, you just cannot be a lemming when the interaction does not involve your job.
I’ve had wings tell me that their managers’ respect them more for challenging them in regards to the discussion of arbitrary non-work related topics.
I think that “tests” are not unique to women and that there are constant “AMOG tests” amongst men that help determine their social status amongst the group.
It is important to pass these and show that you are dominant in even the most challenging circumstances. It will make you feel more comfortable in uncomfortable environments and help build your confidence all making you more successful with women in the end.
Also, in this situation it was wrong for me to be annoyed at my manager. I should have been annoyed by my response to my manager.
Eventually I understood that and through trial and error figured out the proper response to him.
I changed myself to fix the problem. Always remember that your social status can change if you can change yourself to the better.
To learn more about how to handle “alpha males” I recommend getting Mehow’s Get The Girl Manual.
Both The Attraction Code and Get The Girl are each over 170 pages packed full of tips and techniques to make you better with women. Both also come with about $500 worth of bonuses all for less than $40 each!
In fact, I recommend you get them both giving you about $1000 worth of material all for less than $75 total. They are two of the most respected programs and best bargains in the seduction community!
Sure, the monetary “value” of the programs are completely arbitrary but I think everyone will agree that the possible social benefits from what can be learned from these programs is priceless…
And now I’m sounding like a damn credit card commercial so it is time for me to end this article!
