Interesante elenco di regole.

Lo tradurrei io, ma nonostante il mio vocabolario sia migliorato molto leggendo tutti questi manuali in inglese, non sono ancora alla perfezione linguistica di Domino e di altri ;)

THE 55 LAWS OF THE ALPHA MALE:

1. Always take up a lot of space. Beta-males always shrink up as if

they were apologizing for their own personal waste of space. Be

territorial. Claim it because you own it.

2. Be calmer than everyone around you. Stress (talking about it or

showing it) is an indicator of Beta-male status. Be unaffected by what

others are affected by. Heat, sweat, cold, stress, etc…Leaders are

aloof and confident.

3. Slow down body movements. Visualize moving in a pool. Relax your

eyelids.

4. Resist the fear that you will piss people off. Be willing to be

distracted when someone is talking to you. Be willing to take the lead

and end the conversation when you want to. You should be the

initiator for most conversations too.

5. STOP trying to please everyone and make him or her like you. Start

qualifying everyone and don't give any fake smiles, laughs or gestures

until they EARN IT!

6. Develop a sense of impudence: Take liberties you know you deserve.

7. Know your own worth. When someone does you a favor or gives you

something, don't over appreciate. Know that you deserved it and you

had it coming from them. Act as though it is expected when people

help, do favors and give things to you. Set boundaries and limitations

on what you will tolerate from others.

8. Confidence: This is simply freedom from self-doubt, and having

strong beliefs in your own actions, words and abilities. Don't

over-analyze this.

9. Be supportive of `lesser' males. Aggression is never a good idea.

Use praise instead. Make sure your friends are safe and they see you

ensuring their safety.

10. Smile less often. It doesn't make you rude, just discerning.

People should earn your smiles and laughs. Give them as rewards when

people win you over.

11. Don't EVER act apologetic. Don't use excuses or feel the need to

explain your actions….EVER!

12. Time with you is valuable and rare…you are busy and focused on

yourself.

13. Frame equals mood + beliefs about the current situation. Don't get

sucked into anyone's mood. Pull them into yours, forcefully. Be the

pillar of strength that is unmovable. Why do you think strippers like

those poles so much?

14. If you don't define the meaning of the interaction, the other

person will do it for you.

15. Remain silent every once in a while after someone finishes

talking. Look at them and wait…they will keep talking to make you happy.

16. Speak slowly. You will NOT loose the group's attention.

17. Every once in a while, choose a time for you when you will be

closed off for the day. Just stand in quiet confidence and be as

silent as possible. People will try to get you to talk and wonder

what's up.

18. Don't ever laugh at your own jokes. This kills!

19. Make statements whenever possible. People should have to earn your

questions.

20. Don't look around at other people trying to get energy or

attention from them. Your energy is within you. Be in your own

universe, you can have a welcome mat, but others should still be a guest.

21. Hold everyone's attention. If they look away or get distracted, be

the first to walk away, get even more distracted or become immediately

busy.

22. ELIMINATE the fear of being the one to break a group's state by

taking the lead and beginning or ending something first so that others

will follow.

23. Make yourself COMFORTABLE. Don't be uncomfortable when speaking to

others or groups. Face the direction you feel like facing.

24. Make strong eye contact. You don't have to have a serious face on

when you do this. That's stupid. Smirk a tiny bit like you know more

than they do.

25. Don't try to make people like you…make then think you are from the

future- Mystery

26. At the first sign of people's indecision, be the FIRST to speak up

and take action.

27. Don't wait to take control. Seize the opportunity.

28. Out alpha the AMOGS by shoulder taps, friendly elbows, compliments

and putting social pressure on him. Social pressure is only using a

psychological spotlight.

29. When a competing male tries to challenge you or take control of

the group, ignore him, don't make eye contact, keep your body posture.

(Shoulders back and relaxed, head back, smile a little.) Comment when

he's finished.

30. Be comfortable having complete control of the group. It is a

responsibility you must take on. Don't be afraid that you will screw

things up.

31. With men: Start qualifying immediately. As soon as you get them to

qualify, compliment them on something and start telling a story before

they can respond.

32. Being in control is simple: It is only about believing fully in

what you are doing. Believe that you have the best plan of action and

no one could possibly do better.

33. If someone says something you don't like, SMILE, roll your eyes a

little and give them a look as if they were a cute little kid.

34. You must be the one who expends the least amount of nervous

energy. You will then be in control. Let others get nervous; wondering

if they are impressing you or not.

35. Be talkative: Say whatever is on your mind and don't worry about

the consequences. Just be a talkative person.

36. Don't be afraid to make others feel bad. If you feel you need to

say something, say it. Don't ever try to camouflage your intent. Be

honest and direct. This will earn you all kinds of respect points.

37. Resist the need to share the intensity of emotions you're feeling.

38. Touch people when you talk to them. Know that it's okay to do.

39. Don't pause too long when someone asks you a question. This

indicates your deep thinking about the question and your need to give

them the best possible answer…stop dong this!

40. Steeple your hands when you speak if you feel like you are getting

a little nervous. This shows LOTS of confidence and is a leader indicator.

41. Don't walk too fast. This is another behavior that is used to

break your own frame. Slow down and relax. Know you are the MAN.

42. Straighten your spine, tilt your pelvis forward, relax and spread

out. Take up space…it's YOURS!!

43. Don't always respond when someone calls your name. When you do

respond, turn your head to them slowly.

44. Keep it short and to the point. Don't go into some elaborate and

boring story. (I know you love it, but it's boring)

45. When you ask advice from other people, let them have the

spotlight. Don't be afraid to let someone else stand in the spotlight

for a while. Compliment them when they do.

46. Never stop someone from performing acts of generosity towards you,

or be too thankful when they do.

47. Be dominant and in control. If you don't like the

conversation…walk away. Start talking to someone else in the middle of

the conversation if you feel like it. You are the alpha and you are in

charge. Regardless of income, rank etc…you are the leader.

48. Don't ever brag about yourself. Not bragging builds mystery. Let

them discover things on their own.

49. Don't EVER put yourself down! Alpha males do not do this unless it

is an OBVIOUS joke! It's okay to make a joke to convey the opposite of

what you are saying in the joke.

50. Don't ever put others down or talk badly about someone else!!!

This is key. When you put others down, it reveals your own

insecurities. If they are no threat, don't act like they are. Women

will take up sides with anyone you decide to put down.

51. Live a life of DISCIPLINE AND FUN: The two secret ingredients in

the alpha male's life.

52. If you treat people like they are cooler than you are, you are a

beta-male.

53. If you `put up' with disrespectful behavior, you are a beta-male.

54. Use clean language unless you really have to curse. Profanity is

just like verbal violence: The people who use it are usually totally

insecure and frightened by their lack of dominance.

55. Use violence as a LAST resort. The pack leader of any pack is not

a bully

La fonte?

Sembra quasi quella di On Being A Man di DeAngelo (che, per chi non lo sapesse, è il calcio nelle palle più grosso che si possa ricevere, di una noia mortale), ma ora non ho la più minima voglia di controllare...

Non so chi sia l'autore. Le regole comunque mi sembrano sensate (quasi tutte per lo meno) non trovi? :)

8. Confidence (non è facile tradurlo in italiano, sostanzialmente significa "so quello che faccio e lo faccio bene"): E' semplicemente la libertà dai propri dubbi, e credere fortemente nelle propire azioni, parole e capacità. Non analizzarlo troppo (credo sia ironico)

13. Frame uguale umore (buono ndXAX) + convinzione sulla situazione che stai vivendo. Non farti assorbire dall'umore altrui. Tira gli altri nel tuo, con forza. Sii la colonna della forza che sia inamovibile. Perchè pensi che alle spogliarelliste piacciano tanto quei pali? (credo si riferisca ai pali della lap dance)

17. una volta ogni tanto, scegli il tempo per te quando sei isolato per il giorno (credo voglia dire: ogni tanto non farti trovare, sii prezioso, non fare in modo di essere sempre disponibile). Stai appena in una tranquilla confidence e sii silenzioso per quantopossibile. La gente proverà a farti parlare e si stupira quando accadrà.

In sostanza dice che non bisogna dare confidenza a tutti i costi.

28. Manda via gli AMOG con le pacche sulle spalle, gomitate amichevoli, complimenti e mettendogli la pressione sociale addosso. La pressione sociale è semplicemente metterlo psicologicamente sotto l'attenzione di tutti. (è la mia migliore interpretazione di "accendergli un faro psicologico addosso")

40. Metti le tue mani a "campanile" (vedi l'immagine allegata) quando parli se tu ti senti come se stessi diventando nervoso. Questo dimostra molta confidence e indica te come un leader.

41. NON camminare troppoveloce. Questo è un altro comportamento che è usato per rompere il tuo frame. Rallenta e rilassati. Sappi che tu sei l' UOMO

A tal proposito ho trovato questo doc cercando steeple your hands
