How Frame becomes Game

This picture is a really excellent illustration of all things PUA.

The Game explanation for this sequence is like so:

  1. Girl dresses up to maximize her SMV (for boyfriend and general status signaling).
  2. Boyfriend observes her maximum SMV and her motive (the latter is crucial).
  3. Boyfriend humorously insults her appearance using a disingenuous comparison. This indicates his belief that his own status is still higher, but not so much higher that he shouldn’t slap her down. (This is similar to the middle class disparaging the “professionalism” of high proles.)
  4. Girl observes higher male SMV by tautological reasoning. She acts unhappy in order to be coy (again maximizing SMV) but is secretly bursting with happiness for acquiring a high-SMV mate.
  5. Girl goes on social media to show off her high-SMV boyfriend as a female status signal.

So far so good. The portions that are purely Frame relate to the acts of general perception and symbolic communication, i.e. drawing attention to particular details. I’m going to take this opportunity to christen the latter the principle of “selective representation”:

1. Framing is the act of selling a perspective by bringing attention to some contextual details which are—presumably—generally representative, and downplaying others which are not.

Premises of Frame

Here’s where this is applicable to the above scenario:

  • Girl dolls herself up. The purpose of makeup and clothing is to call attention to and exaggerate sexually attractive traits. The little ribbon around her neck accentuates her thin neck and is also symbolic for a submissive personality.
  • Boyfriend observes both the motif (exaggerated sexual value) and the background (female nature). This is a key aspect of social intelligence.
  • Boyfriend chooses to insult her. To do so, he chooses a detail to use for selective representation: the little ribbon. He notes that this ribbon looks the same as an unattractive cartoon character, and uses this to claim that her entire appearance follows this trend.
  • Girl observes this misrepresentation and also the fact that this judgment occurred instantly, indicating that this response is second-nature. This reaffirms her own judgment of his sexual value (which then informs her decision to preen).

So we see that Game is a particular application of Framing, with the additional factors:

  1. Knowledge of how male SMV and female SMV differ.
  2. Knowledge that women enjoy being Gamed in the same way that Americans enjoy a charismatic sales pitch.

    Nailed it. Well put-together post as well.
    This kind of stuff is easy to pick up on. Lately I’ve learned a lot online. I’ve already swayed a decent number of bitches in MBTI or other semi new-agey internet groups. While triggering others (via low level red pill dropping). It was kind of fun. But I’m glad to say I’m done with that. For now at least.
    Now to apply that in real life somehow, I guess. Or maybe that’s not the best idea. I’m back at college btw.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Good luck with that. It sounds like part of your new intellect is a bit sadistic, in an abstract way. I recommend using that drive to become as funny as possible, there’s no downside to that skill.

      >Nailed it. Well put-together post as well.

      Thanks!

    Just looking at her you can tell she is crazy, and will probably stalk him after he leaves her.

  3. Aeoli you’re such a cynic. I prefer to describe this social dynamic as True Love.

  4. Santoculto says:

    I’m only one who think this PUA game is idiotic*

    And it’s dysgenic because stupid-high testosterone men will be more attracted to this games than highly intelligent ones.

    The great concern is

    how create a infallible way to conquer a SMART woman*

    for your guys, for me, wisdom is insuperable and very odd among us.

    • Robotnick says:

      I feel that the best way is to attract women with your character. Yes, social skills/techniques are important, but they are secondary to character, or at least should be.

      I agree that PUA is degenerate, though “Game” isn’t necessarily the same as PUA, and is something red pilled men should be aware of.

      • Santoculto says:

        Other problem is that women tend to be attracted for she choice. Pua look like force unnatural things to happen instead try to restructure the strength of family basis.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          For the modern female it’s a question of economic choice between mates. Does she want the man with the resources or the man who makes her tingle, or the man with a bit of both? It’s not forcing anything, it’s how social competition works when women drive demand.

          • Santoculto says:

            ”it’s how social competition works when women drive demand.”

            I always think it’s wrong, all smart societies regulates themselves, their own behavior and selective mechanisms and not just ”we will bet again in the rational capacity of the regular and unregular people and see what may happen”. It’s evident in the open competition the alpha plague will be more succesful than those who really to do something to the society they live.

      • Aeoli Pera says:

        >I feel that the best way is to attract women with your character. Yes, social skills/techniques are important, but they are secondary to character, or at least should be.

        I would characterize these as long and short-term strategies.

        >I agree that PUA is degenerate, though “Game” isn’t necessarily the same as PUA, and is something red pilled men should be aware of.

        This is a matter of definitions. Polygamy is a viable evolutionary strategy for social competitors (C in CSR), and probably the historical norm.

    • Marshall Mead says:

      1. Have value- Status, fitness etc.
      2. Build attraction w her(basically status signal, be pleasurable to be around, and reinforce her value while simultaneously lowering it whenever she challenges yours)
      3. Test long term compatibility then LTR if she passes
      Its really that simple. It is a life overhaul and daily work to become valuable.
      PUA = faking status or fucking mentally ill sluts.
      Roissy is a fat jewish man in his early 50s. I agree with his WN views but he is a human leach building a narcissistic bubble via his site.
      Roosh is a loser with little status.
      Cernobitch married a low IQ brown troll much like Jeb Bush -whom he mocked for doing the same- and he now seems to be losing it.

      In short, everyone here instinctively knows how to get the girl. We all just have to put in the work and not get distracted by the internet, bad friends, or anything else.

      • Aeoli Pera says:

        >Its really that simple. It is a life overhaul and daily work to become valuable.

        I think it’s very important to learn how female nature works, and what is attractive in a man.

        >Roissy is a fat jewish man in his early 50s. I agree with his WN views but he is a human leach building a narcissistic bubble via his site.

        I doubt all of these claims. My guess is he’s a gen-X policy wonk with the writing bug.

        >Roosh is a loser with little status.

        He leads a sizable subculture, so his status is in a different currency.

        >Cernobitch married a low IQ brown troll much like Jeb Bush -whom he mocked for doing the same- and he now seems to be losing it.

        The price of affirmations is delusion.

        >In short, everyone here instinctively knows how to get the girl.

        I disagree 100%. Without learning Game synthetically I would have zero chance with women.

        • Marshall Mead says:

          >Think its important to learn how females work.
          See points 1-3. What I am implying is 80/20 rule.
          The little tricks dont matter compared to fitness, social status, etc. You have to be doing something besides reading blog posts.
          >0 chance w/ women naturally.
          Thats an unfortunate thing to believe, though you can remove “instinctively” from what was said and the message is the same- likely everyone reading this is in serious diminishing returns territory on game. Application of basics=success!

            This is somewhat disingenuous but likely the evidence is trustworthy in the main. Let’s revise:

            -He looks and sounds Jewish. Good enough for me.
            -He isn’t fat.
            -He’s middle-aged, not old.

            The little tricks dont matter compared to fitness, social status, etc. You have to be doing something besides reading blog posts.

            Your criticism is suited for internet spergs but not average niceguys, which are the audience that has greatest potential for improvement. My assumption has always been that Roissy’s project, insofar as he has one, is to help white Beta males to breed so we can continue to have nice things.

            The correct analysis is to talk about necessary and sufficient conditions.

            >Thats an unfortunate thing to believe, though you can remove “instinctively” from what was said and the message is the same- likely everyone reading this is in serious diminishing returns territory on game. Application of basics=success!

            I believe it because it’s supported by a lifetime of evidence. I agree that practicing the fundamentals is the most important thing in any endeavor.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      PUA is idiotic because our sexual culture is breaking down due to mutation accumulation. It’s no good to live as if society were different than it is, that’s just delusional.

  5. Post Alley Crackpot says:

    It’s not just the little ribbon, it’s also that brightly reflective ball bearing she’s wearing that completes the image. :-)

  6. words can be sharp says:

    Hmmm.

    The pot of off-chart arrogance and narcissism in that picture is what exactly steers my speech to wild ego-crushing calculated Mode.

    They run away very upset (but the fun is little: beta men in spades beg to be the carpet between their walking feet and the ground, after a minute they feel OK again. That minute is sweet though.)

    • words can be sharp says:

      ” middle class disparaging the “professionalism” of high proles”

      However, those funny names given to menial low-skills jobs, whomever invented them, were mainly made to make the proles feel better about themselves.

      I possibly know many more proles than you (including many Mestizos), and they LOVE those ridiculous names, far from seeing them as items of mockery.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      >The pot of off-chart arrogance and narcissism in that picture is what exactly steers my speech to wild ego-crushing calculated Mode.

      Then you have good instincts.

      >They run away very upset (but the fun is little: beta men in spades beg to be the carpet between their walking feet and the ground, after a minute they feel OK again. That minute is sweet though.)

      Lol.

  7. Pellegri says:

    The resemblance is so perfect I’m wondering more if she didn’t stage it.

    And her eyes are creeping me the hell out.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Game applies to everyone, but with emotionally incontinent people it’s the only thing that applies. When I picked this picture as “all things PUA” I took into account that she’s 1) crazy 2) young, thin, attractive, and 3) low-class.

      • Pellegri says:

        Gotcha.

        She’s still creeping me out and I wish I could analyze why I have such a visceral dislike of her. Perhaps it’s that crazy thing everyone else is picking up on.
