MASTER THE MASS FIRST IMPRESSION AND YOU WILL MASTER YOUR DESTINY

Casual & Aimless. You enter to the promised land of First Impression with high hopes, only to find out that the other is stuck inside his own head, without ability to think beyond his own concerns and routines. The great majority of First Impressions you experience are utterly haphazard muddles of assemblies.

This narrow-mindedness of others represents immense possibility to anyone who seeks to succeed in life. You need to learn think beyond yourself. Plan ahead.

I am going to share a secret with you. You know this to be true, yet no one have told it to you. The finding has been published only in an obscure academic magazine called Journal of Consumer Research just few years ago. 

Imagine yourself meeting your idol, someone you respect, - in person. You are alone with him and you have a glimpse of him. The First Impression is created. Then, imagine you in a group of people, your friends, meeting the idol. You do this together, - take in the First Impression the idol creates for you.

Now read carefully. This is important. The research that the Oxford researchers did, found out that the joint experience, the one where you get to meet your idol in a group, trigger “a more holistic (less analytic) processing style”. 

Interpretation: Joint experiences are more open for insinuation. You are more in charge of your First Impression when there is a group of people experiencing it.

The second finding: “…evaluations of later episodes assimilate to first impressions.” Interpretation: The first impressions experienced with others have even bigger impact than when experienced alone. The First Impression done in front of a group of people, overshadows the experiences afterwards.

Law of First Impression. People in groups are biased to be inattentive. Use this in your advantage. Strengthen your First Impression by making it public, more the people, bigger the snowball effect. Hone your skill to make a precise and favorable First Impression in front of a group of people. Make your public appearances to your masterpieces. When mastered you can be sure that it has magnified effect. You have planted a seed and it grows in the minds of others.

Final Note. If perfected, this skill of Mass First Impression can lead to unprecedented success in your life. People will fall under your spell and your life becomes smoother and grander. It is now up to you decide how your First Impression looks and feels. Master the Mass First Impression and you will Master your Destiny.

Disrespect the rules the society foists on you

Our culture consists of a social codex, - manners that we use to survive with others. It is a necessity. But it is also a game. We nudge each other to one or other direction each time we are in contact with each other. We expect that others behave in specific way.

Some take the rules themselves. Internalize the social expectations. They think that they master the rules. Yet the ones who use and force the rules most are also the most disliked. And that is all right.

"The ultimate right and wrong doesn’t exist. The right and wrong are constructions of human mind. And human mind is of fluid construction." -Max Noble

The rigid people imagine themselves that there is only one way of being and doing things. They know what is right and wrong in this world.  Yet, you and I know the truth. The ultimate right and wrong doesn’t exist. The right and wrong are constructions of human mind. And human mind is of fluid construction.

The rigid people are one-trick-ponies (circus ponies who master one trick and nothing else) and this makes them extremely vulnerable. Take them out of their comfort zone and they will be lost. They have programmed themselves to survive in one specific environment, one specific act the time. You don’t want to be a one-trick-pony. You don’t want to just survive in social situations. You want to master the social situations. And that is an art. Not science.

"When you meet new people, be the first one to humanize the interaction."  -Max Noble

"When you meet new people, be the first one to humanize the interaction." -Max Noble

Truth of First Impression. To master the human interaction and to perfect your First Impression, you cannot rely solely on rules. That makes you inflexible, judgmental, one-trick-pony. A graceless know-it-all. People will despise you and with time you will grow even more judgmental and isolated. To stop this, you need to trust your instincts, lower your guards and let the flow happen. Train your instincts together with the social codex. When you meet new people, be the first one to humanize the interaction. Take others in to the warmth of your personality from the first moment, look into their eyes, respect what you see and take action based on that. There is no predefined code. Be bold and create deep, meaningful interactions. Done correctly, it will make you well liked and respected, - a pleasant star of the day.

Final Note. Use of humor is the fastest and most efficient way to move others to ease. Even the stiff people will lower their guards and let them be influenced by you with a successful use of wit. That’s why everybody likes comedians.

Why being present is the most vital thing in your life?

This rule is the most important rule of all. In life. Without it you will never be able to think clearly, produce, be in love or have success. Without it you don’t exist.

Be Present

You must forget the past. Don’t dwell into future. Stop right now and let these words sink into you. This is a test. How long can you focus on this text. That is your only criteria to success. So much depends on this. Being present. Your focus. Your discipline. Your life. Your life exists only in now. Yet you struggle to read this text and most likely have been interrupted already now. A sound. A smell. A sudden flashback. A worry about forgetting.

"Your life exists only in now." -Max Noble

Your brain is the same brain as your hunting ancestors had. It is build for long social recreations around fire. Bonding with others is what makes us human successful. We are in search of our tribe all the time. Then there are the intervals. The hunt. The excitement. The joy of being part of something playful, yet serious and challenging. Focus. Discipline. The emotion. The passion. This is what we crave for. You know this. You want this. The real life. The real you.

"You forget everything and are in flow, synchronized with yourself and you surroundings. You forget your ego and its worries. You become whole." -Max Noble

"You forget everything and are in flow, synchronized with yourself and you surroundings. You forget your ego and its worries. You become whole." -Max Noble

Truth of First Impression. You are not present. This is the common theme of a contemporary man. You are either being sad or joyous about the past or plan or worry about future. It is a rare moment that we found ourselves being present. Yet this is the key to your life. Your life exists only in now. When making First Impressions, your first and most important duty is to be present. Only this way you can take others in. Only in this way you can read others and react accordingly. Only by being present, you can create pleasant moments to others. You need to stop the time by ending the endless chatter in your head. Love the now and the life will love you back.

Final Note. Being present is hard in the modern world, but it is also one of the most rewarding things. You forget everything and are in flow, synchronized with yourself and you surroundings. You forget your ego and its worries. You become whole.

Why You as a Man Do Not Exist in the Eyes of Women

This is a lighter note. Not scientifically proven. A fun note. Yet I know it to be the truth. It comes from my wife, the all-knowing oracle of mine.

What do men think? The bitter-sweet truth is that men are utterly simple. We think of women, success and enjoying the life. In that order. We, the men, are efficient machines, created by millions of years of evolution crafted with one thing in mind. Reproduction. Go to any man’s head and we all have three things in common: Sex, Leaving Legacy and Fun.

"Women have many more enemies than men have. And the enemies are very visible. And more the Enemy sends the sex, legacy & fun signals, more enemies they make." -Max Noble

Enter the women and we men are completely and unreservedly mesmerized by them. They have our full attention. They have our brain twisted and rocked everytime they enter the room. We men are the weak sex. We are simple, drooling creatures that love anything to do with those three things. Preferably in one bundle. If the woman possesses even a hint of all the three qualities, we are doomed to switch off our logic and stare. That’s why we are creepy puppies. Our brains do not function properly when women are around.

Ok. Those were my thoughts. Back to my wife. I showed her this, I thought an amazing video, from my friends about Polo.

While we watch movies or anything visual, we need to mirror ourselves in one of the roles we see, otherwise there is no effect. In this case my sub consciousness chose me to become the Polo player standing on moving convertible Bentley, swinging the mallet (a long-handled stick used in Polo) towards the ball and it made feel me pretty good about the scenario.

My wife saw something else. There are glimpses of Polo spectators in the movie. Most of them have the proper Polo spectator outfit on. Meaning sunglasses, some wearing a hat, very nicely dressed most of them. Now to the key finding. I asked what were her thoughts about the 1 minute movie. She struggled to say anything, and I got even more curious. Why this amazing sport and movie makes her itchy? Below is my interpretation and conclusion of the insightful discussion we had about the well-kept secret of women. To be blazenly open, most of it is my own interpretation. My wife might even deny that the discussion had these conclusions. But this is the truth.

Truth of First Impression. Men do not exist in the eyes of the women, - if there are other women around they focus on them. Why? Because their hormones are tribal. Women look at other women to see if they fit into their social codex. Expressed in manners, clothing and values. These other women fit into two rough categories. Friends and Enemies. The Friends are the ones the woman feels safe with. Ultimately, these friends are there for them to support in the case the reproduction and safety machine of man goes broken or is kicked away. Thus the bonding. Women bond all the time with other women because it makes them feel safe. Then there are the Enemies. And there are many of them. Women have many more enemies than men have. And the enemies are very visible. And more the Enemy sends the sex, legacy & fun signals, more enemies they make. They are not part of the tribe. Women are so focused on this Friend/Enemy battle in their head that they don’t see the men. They are in Tribal mode. Unless…

There are two exceptions that switch the Tribal mode off.

Firstly there are the demigods. The ideal husbands that the women wants to share their genes with. They are the saints and rakes at the same time. They can save the babies from burning building, while looking ruggedly handsome. These demigods have the aura that makes women confused, emotional and ready to reproduce right away. At least so say their hormones. My estimate is that about 5% of the male population has this gift. Most of them are blatantly ignorant of it. They just have it.

Secondly, the exotic and unexplainable man that captures women’s attention, not by their good looks, although it helps, but being a stranger. The woman is fascinated by this mysterious man because he offers better survival for her genes. Mixture of two wildly different gene pools has better survival change than two very similar gene pools. She is fascinated by the opposite of her, the color of the eyes, strange habits or manners, the adventure. Break from the usual routine.

Final Note. To capture woman’s attention, the man's first impression needs hint either demigod or exotic creature, preferably both. Otherwise women ignore the man and pay attention to other women.

Why being pure good is boring and why Saints never rule the world

To attract others is a magnificent combination of art and science. There are rules that make sense and others, - not so. At least at the first glimpse.

Accept this: Pure goodness is boring. You are never attracted to pure goodness as much to something that has complex appearance, maybe event slightly sinister. That’s why James Bond has a drinking problem. That’s why Trump won the election. That’s why the women who make men wild, are not the most saintly ones. Forget the unnatural political correctness. People, that include you, love the hint of danger. You are provoked and stirred by it. It awakens you. And you love it. Life is dull and you want to break the dreary routines. You want to love the bad.

"Forget the unnatural political correctness. People, that include you, love the hint of danger."  -Max Noble

"Forget the unnatural political correctness. People, that include you, love the hint of danger." -Max Noble

To attract others. To make them interested. To make a sale. To convince anyone, you cannot rely on your goodness only. Yes, you can appear as a Saint, but to perfect the persuasion, you need to grow and accept that there are no living Saints. That is why the religions give the title of Saint, when the person has first passed away. When they lived, they were not Saints. Now that the person is not in vigor, the followers are free to construct the perfect image. Only fools believe in perfection. There is no perfection.

Truth of First Impression. When first impression happens, you need to be in charge of it. You don’t want to appear boring. You want others to want you. To do that, you need to accept the fact that a bore will never be as good as someone who creates excitement. The one who grabs your attention will always win over a dull, no matter how good they are. You need to hint something dangerous, forbidden, problematic even slightly threatening.

Final note. Never overplay this side of you when creating first impression. You don’t want to scare off people. You want their full attention, not run or fight reaction. The ideal good-evil balance is depended on you, but during the first impression it must only a slightest hint.

Get That Profile Picture Right

Why your success depends on your profile picture and how to take the perfect profile picture?

You have 0,1 seconds. That is the time it takes when we see a new face our brains decide whether a person is attractive and trustworthy, among many other things.

"It is not your current real-life face that matters. Your social media profile picture is the corner stone of your identity."

Princeton University Research has found that people respond intuitively to faces so rapidly that our reasoning minds have no have time to influence the reaction - and that our intuitions about attraction and trust are among those we form the fastest. Most interestingly our ancient brains do not make difference between picture and real face when it comes to making first impressions.

Successful people know that the first impression is quick, correct and lasting. And it is not your current real-life face that matters (so much). Your social media profile picture is the corner stone of your identity and through your picture alone you can attract, gain trust and win; once it slips, however, you are shunned, vulnerable and unlucky for reason. Your social media picture is presented to tens, maybe to hundreds of people. Everyday.

Never underestimate the power of first impression

Ignore the message of this article and your life will be failed one. Your love life, social life, career and your success depend on it. One second or less and you are judged, - forever. This is the power of first impressions.

"When you are in charge of your first impression, you are the one in control of your destiny." -Max Noble

When you show yourself in the world and meet other people, you naturally stir up emotions. This is to be expected and do not fool yourself into thinking that others do not judge you. It is an ancient survival mechanism, rooted to the deepest parts of our brains and a very powerful one. You cannot use your life second-guessing others motives or nature. We trust our instincts immediately and the impressions we make are lasting ones.

"Let the fools ignore the power of first impressions." -Max Noble

"Let the fools ignore the power of first impressions." -Max Noble

In life it is foolish not to make best out this primary reaction that cannot be avoided. You need to learn how to master the art of first impressions.

You will start by learning how to do more precise first impression. Look at yourself at the mirror and ask if you send the right signals. You want to be thinking the best of you. Not George Clooney or Angelica Jolie. Do you have an aura of likability, trustworthiness and wisdom in your own way? If not, you must take an action. Not giving the best of you is brazenly stupid. Your mirror reflection is the lightning in the dark that people will see and not forget and you don’t want the lightning be shadowed by your gloominess or secondary deficiencies. We all do have them. The best of us just don’t care.

When you are in charge of your first impression, you are the one in control of your destiny. It is always better to make favorable imprint than to lower your standards. The more you are in control of your first impression, the more freedom you have. Your happiness and prosperity depend on it. Let the fools ignore the power of first impressions. You will never underestimate the power of first impression.
