Most everybody is familiar with the concept of “acquired tastes.”
But the actual physiological and mental process of actually acquiring tastes is pretty interesting.
And once you understand this, you’ll find it everywhere.
First, the basic idea of Pavlov and his dogs.
First, food equals salivation.
Second, food plus bell equals salivation.
Finally, bell only equals salivation.
Now consider something like the first time you drink alcohol.
First, alcohol = bad taste.
Next, alcohol = comfortable mental buzz feeling.
Finally, this positive mental buzz feeling is associated with the taste.
Making the taste “taste” better.
Same with coffee and healthy food.
Longer Game Reframe
Healthy takes a bit longer, and there are more variables.
Boiled chicken breast tastes boring.
But boiled chicken breast plus exercise over a long period of time = a positive feeling when you look at yourself in the mirror.
And that positive feeling of that better body is subconsciously, or maybe consciously, associated with potentially better sex and relationships in the future.
This takes a lot longer than the acquired taste of alcohol and coffee.
But if you keep at it, it won’t only infuse a lot of positive emotional and sexual expectations into healthy food and exercise.
It will have a negative impact on IMMEDIATELY satisfying, but unhealthy food.
Donuts Taste Terrible
Maybe even make it UNSATISFYING.
Meaning you won’t need ANY willpower to NOT eat a donut.
But there is a much deeper way to create an acquired taste.
This is a bit more complex.
A bit more mental.
But the payoff is ENORMOUS.
What does this involve?
The human ego is the driving force between competition of all kinds.
Blatant sports or game competitions.
Subtle communication competitions.
The ego is the driving force behind the need to PROVE to everybody that you are better than everybody.
Nobody thinks this consciously.
Understand and Manage
This is, as the philosophers say, the ego’s (or the devil’s) greatest trick.
To convince us he doesn’t exist.
But every time you feel the need to add your two cents, that’s your ego.
Every time you need to explain why YOUR ideas are better than everybody else’s, that’s your ego.
So how do you manage your ego in an acquired taste kind of way?
By OUTFRAMING your ego.
Outframing your short game ego with your long game ego.
You see a pretty lady.
The common strategy is to IMPRESS her somehow.
To demonstrate value.
From the ego’s standpoint, you are compelled to demonstrate to her why you are BETTER than all the other guys.
But consider another option.
First, turn off your ego.
Go over and find out things about her.
Things that will feed HER ego.
This will make her beam with pure, happy, very expressive, feminine energy.
Long Game Ego
When this happens, EVERYBODY will see this.
All the ladies in the club will see this.
All the dudes in the club will see this.
And that will make all the ladies want to be WITH YOU.
And it will make all the dudes want to BE YOU.
Both will be very, very pleasing to your ego.
