The Fallacy Of Being An Analytical Guy
Today I wanted to talk to you about something that I come across on nearly every workshop I run. It occurs so commonly that I think the only way to really get through to you is to just come right out and say it. Here goes.
Being an analytical thinker does NOT make you unique.
The Upside of Being Analytical
Now, if you’re reading this it’s a good chance that you are an analytical thinker. Most of my clients are above average intelligence and working in logical technical fields.
You spend a lot of your time thinking about concepts, philosophizing about things that have happened, are happening and could happen - considering every single angle possible of a problem before taking action.
It’s possible that you’re right now thinking how pissed off you are at me for saying you’re not special, and formulating a cohesively structured logical argument in your mind to prove me wrong.
I’m not saying analysis is a bad thing. Especially if you’re working in a job that requires you to be analytical.
The last thing I want is to be driving across a bridge, built by an engineer who decided his first draft was ‘good enough’, because it will probably collapse and kill me.
...and the Downside
However, it DOES become a problem when you start to wear it as a badge of honor, as though it makes you special.
If your thinking habits are making seduction harder, you need to really ask yourself if it’s worth the trade off. The problem is that when you are so invested in analysis you can’t shift into the more creative, loose way of thinking needed to approach women.
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard guys say “my mind works differently than everyone else”.
The truth is that effective seducers do not use analysis when approaching and seducing women. They use presence, spontaneous flow and real time re-calibration by reading the situation through their senses rather than by thinking through the problem.
Analysis is Your Enemy in Seduction.
Trust me, I’ve been there. As a teenager I thought that I was the only one who was considering the deeper spiritual and philosophical meanings to life.
That all of the meatheads didn’t have the mental capacity to transverse the intricacies that my mind could.
That is, until I discovered meditation. A way for me to observe my thoughts instead of thinking that I WAS my thoughts.
Part of my motivation for creating the Marshall Meditation Method, my six week online course designed to teach a comprehensive yet practical meditation system, was to help guys who are stuck in their heads all day, just like I was. To show them that it’s possible to stop overthinking and shift their focus to being in the present moment.
That they aren’t a one dimensional being, that ‘analytical thinker’ isn’t the only way to describe themselves. That they can be spontaneous, and fun, and free, and flowing in the moment. They can experience life as it is, now, in reality, instead of inside of their heads. If you want to learn more about the course click HERE for full details.
Remember, if you are an analytical guy it doesn’t mean you suddenly need to forsake that part of yourself. Obviously there are times in life when it is useful, but recognize that there is a whole other side to you that is creative, spontaneous and playful which has been repressed for a long time and NEEDS to come out if you ever hope to get better with women.
