The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene We'll be looking at The Seductive Process

part of the book right from the start. 1. Choose the Right Victim

Know who to seduce & who not to waste your time on.

Preparing for the Hunt The Vicomte de Valmont was notorious for his subtle & serpent-like

seductive traits. Leaving behind his conquests in Paris he went for a calm visit to the provinces.

At his aunts chateau he took on a challenge worthy of his skills, the seduction of a beautiful,

but prude, devoted wife. Attraction is not a choice. The vicomte discovered

a new type of woman he wasn't used to seeing. She was unique. He decided to conquer her

heart, however, she had already seduced him. It was her natural, confident, noble and innocent

character that drew him in. He then tested the waters, appeared where she would be, invited

her to spend time with him and his aunt. When he sensed that she was receptive of his advances,

he knew - the process could carry on. Now before we move on, I can already feel

a bunch of you getting uncomfortable with the terminology Greene uses and he's gotten

some hate for it. Seduction is a kind of manipulation, there's no way around it. Persuasion, sales,

influencing people, you can call it whatever you want, we're essentualy talking about manipulation.

Manipulation can be used for both good and bad. My mother for example told me to eat

my spinach 15 years ago so I could get lots of muscle like my back-then-hero Popeye knowing

fully well that way I was more likely to eat my vegetables. Does that make her an evil

Machiavellian mastermind? No, it doesn't. And when we use the word victim here, it simply

means, that person, regardless of gender, is on the receiving end of seduction. They're

the ones being seduced. And I dare you to make this a man vs woman thing, I'll gladly

destroy any biased arguments. I'll say a few more words about that at the end. -continuing

Keys to Seduction / what are the most important lessons we should take away from this chapter?

Get a sense of who you're dealing with / Be that through observation or direct confrontation.

Determine weather you genuinely like the person. What are they like, what are their interests,

who are they with, are they currently in a relationship, where do they live and so on.

In, I hate to say it, pickup terms, this is called screening, you get to know your victim

on a superficial level, you find out the logistics and that's enough for you to see wheater or

not they're worth your time and the continuance of the seductive process.

Test the waters for biting fish / See if you can build up a tension, a sign for erotic

potential, between you and your victim. If they're not open to your influence, there's

nothing to be gained. Your advances are better saved for another target. Especially when

you're in a venue full of potential victims. Look for the ones who are hungry for your

attention. It's more than okay to be chosen by someone. They will allow your advances,

because they genuinely like it. Don't settle for less / Here's one of the

greatest lies imposed on men, ready? She's out of your league. You're not good enough

for her. That is nothing more than a limiting belief disguised as a societal standard. Don't

get a partner in your league, just because you've been told you have to, this bullshit

makes me angry. There is no leagues, there is only superficially more attractive people.

The sense of entitlement people get, because they resemble magazine models is insane. Beauty

fades, the person you are 20 years from now, what will your worth be once your beauty's

gone? That's a legitimate question. Ask yourself, is that all I am? Pretty? The value of a person is not

solely determined by how goodlooking they are and what their bank account looks like.

This notion that people who've been told that they're ugly are less important is sad. Don't

settle for less, ever. And just to make this clear, no one said stop

going to the gym, eat whatever you want, stop taking care of your hygiene, and play video

games all day - you can get with someone either way. Actually I'd advise you to do quite the

opposite of that. No word twisting allowed here. Also, go to the gym for your physical

and mental health and the person you'll become by constant, tough and disciplined workouts,

not because a sixpack will help to get you laid. That's a positive side effect, but it

shouldn't necessarily be your main motivator. Don't rush into a relationship / Whatever

you do, don't rush into a relationship just to be in one. It's a scarcitiy mindset, we're

all afraid of being alone and we're seen as losers if we can't get with another person.

Being single is freaking awesome and nothing to be ashamed for. Look, in my opinion, there's

nothing better than being with the love of your life, if that exists for you, but take

it slowly, see where the relationship goes before you make big plans. Next thing you

know you got kids with a person you hate and you're getting a divorce. Not even gonna talk

about the fiasco that then ensues. I wish people were more concerned about the children.

It sucks big time to have young parents who don't have any fucking idea what they're doing,

it sucks even more to be raised by divorced parents. Choose carefully who you decide to

settle down with. "It is a stroke of good fortune to find one

who is worth seducing ... Most people rush ahead, become engaged or do other stupid things,

and in a turn of the hand everything is over, and they know neither what they have won nor

what they have lost." - SØREN KIERKEGAARD, one of the most influental philosophers in

history That is such a profound statement. They know

neither what they have won nor what they have lost. (The wrong victim can destroy your life.

Like the Vicomte you may think you're seducing your victim, when in reality, you're the one

being seduced. In that kind of situation you may very well end up a slave in the hands

of your new master, your sole task being to provide for them for the rest of your life.)

Realize when the tables are turnt / From time to time, the hunter gets hunted, but then

again ladies and gentlemen, being seduced by a master is almost always a great pleasure.

We secretly want to be deceived and if done right we have the time of our lives, but on

the other hand - waiting for a promised call, usually women and losing a shitload of money,

usually men, is not that much fun. Even way worse is ending up a single parent, so be

careful who you give in to, it's your responsibility, yours alone.

Reversal There is none. No logical argument in the world would state that you rather waste

your time and resources by pursuing an unsuitable victim. Forget what you've been shown in the

media. Romance movies are not real life. Hitch - The Date Doctor is great entertainment,

sure Kevin James is amazing, netflix and chill, but do not, by the love of god, take it seriously.

Hollywood is not a portrayal of reality, stand infront of a chicks window in her garden with

a boombox, a love song so loud the neighbours are complaining or even worse, you wrote your

own poem. You will creep them out. They'll either be scared or embarrassed for life.

Worst case scenario she calls the cops and you get a sexual offense charge. That's the

world we live in. Act accordingly. Someone treats you horribly, ignore them, leave, have

a walk and don't come back to them. Take on an abundance mentality, walk away if your

terms aren't met. I'm not saying don't try hard, I'm saying know the difference between

a worthy challenge and a fruitless, conceited leech who will suck you dry, and not in a

good way. I was hesitant with taking on the Art of Seduction,

because I was and still am convinced the majority of the requests came from people desperate

to learn how to get laid, now there is nothing wrong with that in particular. But only picturing

what kind of questions I'd get thrown at me I felt the sense of frustration.

As I've seen with the 48 laws series, I spent a ridiculous amount of time explaining each

chapter and I still get some very basic questions, that I thought I wouldn't need to address

in the first place like 'Wait a minute, I'm confused, doesn't that law contradict this

law?' Yes, it does, it will be the same with the Art of Seduction.

Imagine each law, and it's a law by the way, not a rule, not a trick, not a pickup routine,

it's a law. Imagine each of them as a recipe for different delicious meals. Some food goes

together fairly well and some just don't mix. First of all, you need the right ingredients,

then, there is still the risk you'll overcook it, you'll put too much salt, it will take

fire, you burn yourself preparing the sauce or even, that the person you're cooking the

meal for simply doesn't like the dish, because believe it or not, they might have a different

taste. You're not supposed to be applying every law at every instance at the same time.

No one ever said that. Some of the laws are simply there to be aware

of them. Just like I don't want you to start a cult, I don't want you to destroy a 20 year

old marriage, but it's not my responsibility if you choose to or not. If I showed you how

to defend yourself against a powerful knife attack, and you chose to take away from it,

what a powerful knife strike looks like and how you can attack people with it, that's

you. I personally have morals, principles and I live by them as best I can, which by

the way is the contrary of what Machiavelli would've taught me, but I'm not going to take

the moral highground and judge people I barely know on social media as it has become the

norm now. I'd like this to be a judge-free-zone just as much as I want the girl I'm flirting

with to know I'm not judgemental. The stories girls have revealed to me starting with 'Well,

I really shouldn't tell you this, buut...' were horrifying at times, in my mind I was

like what the fuck, but I don't say that to the girl. It ruins the mood.

I'm simply taking a look at Robert Greene's books and bringing it to you in my original,

unique and entertaining way. I got a little bit to bring to the table on this topic as

well and this series will be very red pill, meaning, we all choose reality over comfortable

lies, we don't choose to live in the matrix. There's no safe spaces here, we're living

right now and want to see everything for what it is, because in order to prosper in your

environment you have to know the environment, you have to be as close to the truth of what's

going on, what's working, what's achieving positive results and the present moment as

you possibly can, putting aside your ego and wishful thinking. So, if you're against that

the illacertus community is not the place for you.

If you want to be played to your fantasies instead, go buy 6 min ab workout programs

for 100$, spend 500 bucks on supplements, buy Tai Lopez's program and read The Game

by Neil Strauss. My point is, maybe this isn't for you, maybe you're not that kind of person.

The illacerti, as I like to call the badasses following this channel closely, don't just

mindlessly consume self-development videos on YouTube to feel good about themselves and

they actually do try to implement the things that make sense to them, not because they're

absolutely going to work 100% all of the time, no, but because they understand at a fundamental,

core level, that they will grow as a person from the experience by taking bold action.

It's not what you do, it's who you become. If you are that person, I'm happy you've found

this content and I hope you stick around, because you're more than welcome. You are

the guys I'm doing this for, when creating I ask myself what would've been of great value

to me at the age of 18, maybe younger. What lessons did I learn through painful trial

and error, through rejection, through getting my ass handed to me in social dynamics, business

and overall life, that I can share with people who then don't have to make the same mistakes

I made in order to learn. Of course, I also learned from my successes and I'll be sharing

it all with you. -continuing. When I refer to a certain law within this

series I will be talking about the, in total, 24 laws of seduction. Yes, we'll be looking

at the seducer types as well. No, we probably won't cover the victim types, I think it's

overkill and counterproductive in the way that it's only going to get you in your head

even more while talking to people. Categorizing others into boxes is exactly the opposite

of what you want to do. See each individual as a new island to explore. There might be

some buried treasures you'd overlook otherwise. Greene saw this book as the logical follow-up

to the 48 Laws of Power since seduction is, quote, 'about power and manipulation as much

as it is about romance, about how to make someone fall under your spell.' Without a

doubt I will be contributing much of my own thoughts aside from summarizing Greene's texts

and I think it is needless to say that I am a heterosexual white male, the worst thing

feminists can think of nowadays, and that my observations are through my own lense.

I do think, however, that if you're female, statistically 10% of my viewers are women,

you can learn just as much, if not more from this quote on quote seduction program. Matter

of fact I encourage women to approach men more, make that first step. If a guy strikes

you as very attractive, chances are other women see that as well and he most likely

has a higher abundance of women, than other men. Maybe you're not that special on the

surface that he will notice you or even talk to you and nothing ends up happening. Inner

values count more with quality men and that's the men you're after. That's the guys who

will call you back, to the contrary of what some Facebook statuses want to make you believe,

they are in the majority. And what better way to show you're a confident, strong woman,

than by taking your love life into your own hands.
