A leadership shortcut (re: pets)

I’ve been observing how my neighbors interact with their pets for many years now, and it’s brought me to the conclusion that the best way to determine how you ought to treat a person you’re responsible for is to mirror the way they treat their pets. This is due to projection.

Some people look up best practices and make lists and plans of what to do, and often have strong feelings about animal training. These are unfortunately more rare than high-functioning people would even imagine.

One of my neighbors is an extreme introvert. She takes her little weiner dog out for a short walk once per day and for the bathroom a few times. Notable qualities: consistency, pragmatism, and low-energy joylessness. I’ll see if I can get her to cosplay as Rei.

Most people get pets in a fit of impulsiveness, then ignore and neglect them for the rest of their lives. Not coincidentally, most people are useless and should not be hired for any reason.

Another neighbor is a blue-collar POS with some kind of pitbull mix. I don’t think I’ve seen him go five seconds in a row around the dog without asserting his monkey dominance displays.

A neighbor I used to live above in college kept his dog in a cage in its own shit and piss 24/7. Though I would mirror this management style, I would include a toilet in the cell. Such a person requires an expensive level of rehabilitation, on the level of Marine Corps training, to be anything other than a liability by mere proximity.

That’s enough examples, you get the idea. This really only works for white people and cosmopolitan nonwhites because pets are a white people thing.

    Here’s some questions I have from looking through the blog.
    1.Cro-magnon and sapien in your and tex’s definition seem to be similar, a weapon powerful enough to wipe out the thals. What do you consider to be the distinction?
    2.You say you’ve used game on more men than women. Is this si separate system of game, and if so, how does it work?
    3.Is there any reference on the MT / TT / TM thal classification system? I’ve heard plenty of it, but have no context.

      Cro magnon groups take organized direction from anyone they recognize as higher status. Sapiens are more like an invasive species.

      >2.You say you’ve used game on more men than women. Is this si separate system of game, and if so, how does it work?

      The differences come from the different goals, since men without chests are de facto women. Nihilists are highly responsive to influence (the heart determines our priorities, therefore our goals, so people without values have no hearts). See Cialdini’s book for details.

      >3.Is there any reference on the MT / TT / TM thal classification system? I’ve heard plenty of it, but have no context.

      It’s an internet archeology problem, because the originator (Koanic) developed a bad habit of deleting everything he created that wasn’t perfect. Lacking a proper directory (or memory, since it’s been several years now), all I can do is wish you good luck in fishing through the koanicsoul.com archives.

    If the pit bull is male it may be necessary for survival.

    Females always follow the alpha male and are a lot easier to stay on top of; for the husband of a family. But a high-personality female will try to take the wife’s place; even Labradors.

    My wife was walking our female Boston Terrier, who started misbehaving. So she grabbed her by the scruff and pinned her to the ground. Fun part was the lady dog trainer who saw it while working in her yard. “Yeah, show that bitch who’s boss!”

    Guys that can really handle hard-headed animals; really don’t seem to pick out the softies personality-wise. Dunno why that is; I’m not one of them.
    I like my animals confidant but compliant; it’s hard to get a pound dog like that and I don’t have the skill to fix a broken one.
