Neurotypicals constitute the majority by definition, man is a sociosexual/political animal, and the difference between a Delta (a functional breeder) and an Omega (a social pariah) is the ability to work well with the average person. Please understand I’m not moralizing, criticizing, or catastrophizing. It’s just Game, and human nature isn’t pretty.
The fundamental paradox of (modern?) normie mindset is to believe you are special without appearing to believe you are special. All bizarre normie behavior, such as enjoying The Office, may be explained from this premise. This paradox emerges from the normalfag reproductive strategy, which I’ll explain in another, more theoretical post. As a practical consideration, it informs us to avoid the two unforgivable sins:
1. Do not under any circumstance give neurotypicals the impression, justified or not, that you think you’re better than them. They will perceive this as malignant parasitism and it will trigger an out-grouping antibody reaction.
2. Do not under any circumstance give neurotypicals the impression, justified or otherwise, that you feel like they’re better than you. They will perceive this as weakness and it will trigger a predatory reaction to exploit you for lolz and profit.
The way to do this is to move, act, and sound like an narcissistic aristocrat while spouting platitudes about equality and how you don’t take yourself seriously, i.e. humblebragging. White neurotypicals are the easiest to get along with because you can just joke ironically about your superiority. One of my favorites is to tell people I’m independently wealthy and “I only work here to better understand you common folk.” The joke is that this isn’t true, therefore I obviously don’t think of myself as being special. But our emotions are blind to irony, so on the limbic level others still perceive me as “not prey”, which is a typecasting I can get behind. The more common version is to complain about “people” (but obviously not including you, the audience, because the unspoken premise is that the in-group is special and better).
To get along with normies, you must satisfy their three primary expectations (in order of importance):
1. Show up most of the time.
2. Don’t be a buzzkill.
3. Know what everybody is thinking.
Deltas generally fail at #3 (annoying but forgivable), Gammas generally fail at #2 and #3 (unforgivable but tolerable), and Omegas generally fail at all three expectations (intolerable). If you’re an Omega looking to achieve Delta status your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to show up most of the time and not be a buzzkill.
There are additional expectations depending on how you are typecast upon first impression (using instinctive phrenology, TV tropes, etc.). If you fail to meet such expectations it will make neurotypicals nervous because they won’t have an emotional script to follow when dealing with you. For example:
- If you’re a man, you are expected to be effective and competitive.
- If you’re a woman, you are expected to be nice and thin.
You ought to take a realistic inventory of what the important people in your life expect from you, and how you can meet them in the middle with your life choices. You don’t get to choose other people’s expectations for you, you only get to decide how much trouble it’s worth to be yourself. My parents still think I fucking love science after knowing me for 29 years because that’s how Sheldon Cooper is. I wouldn’t advise wasting your energy fighting first impressions, as a general thing, because people’s opinions of you perpetually regress to baseline instincts. It’s not all bad either, many cultural expectations will make you happy if you can live up to them.
Here’s a dramatized conversation between my parents and me that illustrates the rules I’ve given and pokes fun at the neurotypical aversion to revealing one’s preferences by discussing existential questions out loud:
“Do whatever you want with your life.”
I don’t want to do anything.
“Just do something.”
I want to work at McDonald’s and read library books forever.
“Well, you have to do something else.”
…I want to go to college?
“We support you 100% in pursuing your dreams. What do you want to study?”
“Close enough. We support you 50% in pursuing your dreams.”
Because normies are entitled but fearful of ostracism, they are constantly riding a line between parasitism and morality that gives them a complex attitude toward degeneracy. It can be both high-status and low-status to be degenerate; what determines the valence is whether one is inconveniencing oneself or others. It’s high-status to inconvenience someone else, particularly if they aren’t in a position to retaliate, and it’s low-status to be inconvenienced. So if you want to be high-status don’t stick your gum under your own desk, stick your gum under someone else’s desk and then laugh about it, and don’t get caught. It’s high-status to cheat but low-status to get punished. Emulate Archer’s nonchalant sadism, not his mother issues. Because of this dynamic you should expect everybody to be screwing you a little bit all of the time as a rule, taking a bit more than they give, with only a few exceptions. Most people will not completely fuck you over, and most will not be charitable either.
To be adaptive, you must accept the need to function within Pareto distributions where most coworkers, friends and family want to take a little bit more than they give while still feeling like plausibly better-than-average people (i.e. safe from group punishment).
