Good little beta boy

Alpha’s regularly fuck the best women, beta’s don’t. If alpha is just a state of mind, then so is beta. I think few things put the average man in a beta state of mind more than working in the modern office.

If you work in an office, and you aren’t near the top of your company’s hierarchy then you will spend most of your days being beta. Deadlines. Bosses telling you what to do. Showing no lust or (non passive) aggression. Sitting still at a desk or day. All these things push you info a beta state of mind.

When you then spend around 40% of your waking hours doing this, you are spending 40% of your waking hours being a beta. You have a lot of work to do out side of the office to stop the beta office drone being who you are.

Some people, Krauser for example, take long extended holidays / sabbaticals off work to get better at pickup. These people often get very good at game very quickly. I always assumed this was because their time of allowed them to open huge numbers of sets each and every week. Although I’m sure that experience in set helps, I actually think the main reason they get good so quickly is that they can live as an alpha 24/7. They are answerable to no one but themselves. When you aren’t forced into your place in an unnatural office hierarchy every day, you are quite literally free to define for yourself what level of the social hierarchy you occupy. You are so much more free to take control of your own reality.

I was thinking about this when I read a recent post on Jambone’s blog. He see’s his office worker persona as a mask. His Clarke Kent. His true persona, his superman, is a pickup artist. This allows him to pick up a beautiful women in his lunch break at work. In contrast to this I see my true self as the office drone, with the pickup artist persona being a mask I put on at the weekend and on the odd weeknight. This is why, despite there being many beautiful women working in other offices near mine I’m yet to approach any of them. How can I? I’m just a dull office worker. Yet if I was out on Oxford Street on a Saturday afternoon I’d go direct on any of them.

I don’t think I’ll ever be truly great at pickup, scoring with the 8s, 9s and 10s until my dominant persona is the pickup artist. I’m not entirely sure how to do this, but I think spending as much time as the pickup artist is the key. At the moment I’m spending too much time in the office to do this. As soon as my workload becomes more manageable I’m going to spend much of my free time sarging.

    You’re getting it. Leaving my job was a turning point not because I could game full time (I don’t – I average about 10 sets a week tops) but because I didn’t constantly have the beta poison of cubicle life ruining me.

      I’d love to work for myself, before the end of the year I think I’m going to start moving towards that. I really can’t see myself working in an office for someone else for the next 40 years.

    This is quite similar to what Epicurus said back in ancient greece – you need a garden to provide you with food and income to be free from having to work for odious superiors and their negative effects on your happiness.

    I’d say that this is only half of what is necessary though. It is no good taking time off work if you just spend it isolated at home surfing the net, watching films, and playing videogames. You need to dominate social circles containing the fit young girls that you want to get on. Even if there aren’t that many girls in your particular circle, as long as a girl could consider herself part of your circle, then you are on the way to social confidence or ‘alphaness’.

    I prefer the term ‘social confidence’ as it is less an abstract gamey codeword that confuses everyone when the try to discuss it.

    • betatopua says:

      I think being confident and being alpha is slightly different, as alpha implies some form of leadership. Confidence is about feeling like you can handle certain situations, for a good relevant example is social situations / talking to girls. I’m now fairly confident socially, but have little desire to lead people unless I really feel the need to in a special situation. Therefore I could be considered fairly confident, but not alpha.
