Part of the nature of pseudonymous conversations online is that people tend to be more honest. In real life, you have to put up a facade of how tough and stoic you are, and any self-doubts you utter in public will only undermine your position because, unlike mainstream propaganda tells you, showing any weakness as a man does not make you more endearing, let along make any women spread her legs for you. Quite the opposite is the case, in fact.
Quite a few men have told me that they think they are merely average, but not in some sense of false modesty, which you often encounter in real life. Instead, they seemed convinced of it. Yet, everybody who ever told me that he thinks he is pretty average was anything but. I think there is something surreal about a guy in a technical discipline in which you need an IQ of around 120 just to make it through the door as a non-diversity hire to tell you that he is nothing special. However, I can see why those guys think that way. As it so happens, I work in a high IQ field myself. On my last team, half the guys had a STEM PhD. If you can compete at that level, you don’t see anybody, with, again, the exception of the occasional diversity hire, who does not pull their weight.
In the modern world, work is also highly specialized. When I collaborate with someone, I don’t necessarily know all the details of his contribution. I only need to be able to grasp what they have done, and if it works or, better, is formally verified, I know I can rely on it. For them, it’s the same. Overall, I’d say we are all on a pretty comparable level, even though there are differences with regards to motivation or quickness of thought, but it’s not like back in high school where you wonder about roughly half the pupils in class how they are even able to make it through the day, given how visibly stupid they are.
The intellectual segregation you encounter at work is hard to overcome. You probably recruited your friends from a similar background. In high school, you hung out with people of a similar intellectual caliber as yours, and at university, you probably didn’t feel drawn to people much dumber than you. Thus, chances are that you hardly ever talk to someone who is not roughly about as smart as you are.
I used to be trapped in the same intellectual prison. that was before I started picking up women. I never enjoyed socializing with random people very much, so my peers were all similarly cerebral types. You probably can’t imagine the shock it was for me to talk to a chick of average mental capacity. It took me a few months to get over it. I have even walked away from what seemed like pretty sure lays (in hindsight, and with a bit more experience, I’d say it would have been hard to mess them up) just because I could not stand talking to those women anymore. This probably makes me sound like an intellectual snob, but that was not necessarily it. To me, those women inhabited a completely different world. They seemed to question absolutely nothing. No, women with fancy degrees are not necessarily smarter as universities are in the business of indoctrination, not education. I couldn’t talk to them.
In the end, I learned that you don’t need to talk much to women to get laid. A big part of the motivation behind non-verbal pickup was that I preferred not talking to them if I could avoid it. With a bit more practice, however, I was able to fake normie conversations and I got so good at it that I had a few women genuinely believe I was some kind of moron (with a pleasantly big cock). The look on their faces when I suddenly changed my vocabulary as I turned into Egghead Aaron was priceless. My favorite was correcting their wrong pronunciation of certain terms, in particular if I could add a short lesson on etymology, or pointing out to them that some big word they just used does not mean what they think it does.
Had I not bothered with pickup, I probably would be blissfully unaware of how incredibly limited the mind of the average person is. Seriously, the average person is a fucking moron. You probably also have stories of dates with women who were so dumb that you were only able to endure it if she gave you such a massive boner that you just didn’t care — and after sex, you couldn’t wait to get away from her as far as possible.
You may now think that this is all well and good, but ask yourself why I made the strong claim in the title of this article that you, dear reader, are above average intelligence. This argument is easy to make. My blog is not a mainstream resource. For you to find it, read my work, and understand it, you need to be at least able to critically reflect on reality. This is a very high bar for your typical IQ100 normie. It is easy to get trapped in your own intellectual bubble and think that there is nothing outside of it. There is, and it includes people who came across the seduction industry and thought that it makes perfect sense that, for instance, “looks don’t matter”, despite all evidence to the contrary.
If you don’t think you are of above-average intelligence, then you simply don’t talk to enough average people. Maybe go on a few more dates and really listen to what those women say, as opposed to (what you should) focusing on how to get them into bed as soon as possible. You will hear so much dumb crap that you will want to wash your ears out with detergent. Leave your intellectual bubble, if only for a while. Also, do not think that intelligence and educational attainment are one and the same. You can be very smart even without having a degree. A lot of university graduates are unable to think. If you can question societal norms, you are so far beyond those degreed dimwits that it’s not even funny anymore.
What you may also be unaware of is that the average person is unable to coherently formulate their thoughts. You ask them what they think of an issue, and the response will a mere regurgitation. If you probe a little, you may even discover that they don’t even understand what they say. Should you then try to probe a little bit, the result will be that there is nothing there. Their mind is a husk.
Let me go out on a limb here: I bet that most of my readers have an IQ of at least 110. Yes, I bet you have an IQ of at least 110. The average of my readers is probably easily in the 115 to 120 range, simply because the left side of the bell curve is not even represented among you (the occasional dimwitted heckler we get notwithstanding), which necessitates that the mean shifts to the right. My clients are a subset of my readers, and those are arguably an even more biased sample, with an average IQ of easily above 120, just using professional success and mental acuity as a proxy.
Just admit to yourself that you’re smart. Sure, in mainstream society you need to fit in and not upset anybody, but your self-image should reflect your own abilities, not some distortion of how you view yourself. Just look at you and realize how awesome you are: you are smart, you get laid, and you can think for yourself. You’re a winner!
