Say what you want about David but this post is actually true, and actually makes a very good point.. I edited the marketing out.
One of the flaws in the seduction community is that most members are either very dumb, or very intelligent.
The Ten Reasons Why HIGHLY INTELLIGENT
Men Fail With Women... AND WHAT TO DO
Iíve been teaching men how to become more successful with women and dating for several years now... and one "problem scenario" just keeps coming up OVER AND OVER... and OVER and OVER and OVER again...
...and it really amazes me.
Iím going to refer to it as "The Genius Failure Paradox".
"The Genius Failure Paradox" is the tendency for UNUSUALLY intelligent men to have very LOW levels of success with women and dating.
After contemplating this particular paradox, discussing it, and working on it for an awesome amount of time, Iíd like to share my thoughts about it with you.
I assume that if youíve read this far, then you see probably yourself as smarter than the average guy.
You know that youíre a little different than other guys.
You probably realized at a young age that you saw things differently, and thought differently than others in school...
And youíve probably realized that your smart mind gives you an advantage over others in many areas of life...
Your smart mind gives you a particular type of advantage that can be very, very powerful in life: YOUíRE USUALLY RIGHT.
Smart people get used to being "right", because they usually ARE right.
And when youíre RIGHT more often than others, you can get ahead in many situations.
But unfortunately, this smart mind of yours can actually be WORSE than USELESS when it comes to a key area of life:
WOMEN AND DATING.
By the way, I did say WORSE than useless.
It can actually be like having a hammer when you need to tighten a bolt. If you use the tool you have for the job, youíll most likely make the situation WORSE.
Of course, itís hard for a smart guy to even IMAGINE a situation where his smart mind could HURT his chances for success...
But trust me, this is one of those situations.
So relax, open your smart mind, and let me share with you the ten reasons why smart guys fail with women... and what to do about it.
Reason #1: Theyíre wrong, but they canít or wonít see it or admit it.
I mentioned that smart guys are used to being RIGHT in most situations.
And what do most smart guys do when they come across a situation where theyíre WRONG?
They find a new situation... one that fits their strength. They know theyíll be right next time, so they just walk away... knowing that it wonít be long before theyíre right again.
(OR they let the "problem situation" destroy them... more on that later.)
Well, the BITCH about being wrong when it comes to women and dating is THEREíS NOWHERE TO RUN AND HIDE.
Thereís no quick "Iím right" around the next corner to make you feel better.
It only takes "failing" with a few women in a row for a smart guy to see the pattern... and realize that something isnít working.
Solution? Think harder.
A smart guy just assumes that his logic must be good... so he just keeps thinking harder.
But when no success comes, it really starts to become mentally difficult.
Accepting that youíre wrong is a VERY hard thing for a "smart guy".
Accepting that youíre not only wrong, but you have NO CLUE WHERE TO EVEN START is even more difficult.
Ultimately, many smart guys come up with the following logical conclusion:
I AM A SMART GUY, THEREFORE IF I CANíT FIGURE OUT HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITH WOMEN AND DATING, THEN THE PROBLEM MUST NOT BE SOLVABLE OR WORTH SOLVING.
Try that on for a self-defeating idea.
Reason #2: Theyíre blind and arrogant.
In short, many smart guys refuse to accept that a good, solid, workable answer could come from someone "dumber" than them, so they discount any idea that comes from an "obviously less intelligent person" before trying it.
Let me ask you a question:
If you were going to be walking across Africa on foot, would you rather have your guide be the guy on this planet with the highest I.Q., or a caveman who lived a million years ago that had an I.Q. of about 50... but who grew up being chased by lions and all kinds of animals that wanted to eat him all his life?
Itís an interesting question.
Now, hopefully youíd like to have the guide who isnít the smartest guy around... but who has escaped from many, many dangerous situations with deadly animals...
But now let me ask you:
Thereís something about being smart that makes some guys unwilling to accept input, ideas, or instruction from anyone who isnít either as smart or smarter than them.
Well, any SMART GUY can see the folly in this particular approach... once itís examined closely.
