What B.F. Skinner can teach us about canned material?

At the beginning of the community, the “game” been “played” with ready routines and stories. The videos were beginning to show people with results and of course this has meant the whole world to start learning ready routines and false stories, stuff someone had said before and because he had results, anyone can achieve these results as well.

I remember, in discussions on many forums, to saying that these methods are not giving you results, is not the fake story someone is telling but is you who gets the results and how you are telling this story and of course, if you go natural you can have better results, as people have decades now (yes, humanity is not waited for Pickup to make relationships). But many people couldn’t hear anything else, because many people feel safe and do not want to leave the so-called as “bubble of security”, by trying new things.

But what’s the relationship with the Skinner in all these? Let’s see some psychology to understand better.

In 1948, psychologist B. F. Skinner (1904-1990), did an amazing experiment, known as “Project Pigeon“, in order to see the behavior of pigeons to develop missiles that will redirected by the pigeons (see the video at the end).

So he putted some pigeons in some glass boxes and had put a system to give the pigeons food automatically every 15-20”. Thus (according to Skinner) at the beginning the pigeon was trying to understand how the system works. However, the food was scheduled to fall at the beginning, immediately after a movement of the pigeon (e.g. hitting the flaps). In a while, the pigeon therefore considered that the move was what made the food to fall, even if sometimes dropping food to the movement are not correlated (aka Pigeon Superstition).

What this means in a nutshell to the game and flirting? That mistakenly we believe (or made us to believe) that if you are say something “magic”, can make women like you. That if you say something someone else had already told before you (and can be worked on him), will have the same result on you.

Also, they make us to believe that appearance, expensive clothes and/or cars and money can play (or not) a role to win women, but i will analyze it in another topic.

So if you approach a woman with the classic “who lies more, men or women?”, you will see that it does not bring you any results, women doesn’t want always to answer questions like this, because they want to have fun. Of course you can keep 2-3 ideas on how to start/continue a conversation, but you can not rely only on ready stories.

Now if someone insists that these tactics are working and you have to read/learn more fake stories and routines/quotes, he should probably take an IQ test against Skinner’s pigeons.

The last 2 Videos showing some of Skinner’s experiments. The original investigation, however, is in the introduction of the filmMr Nobody (2009) (1st Video).
