I'm bantering bro, Tis all good
Im over the whole guru worship stage. Back in the early days, I used to be so desperate for infield on Lyons and gambler etc.
Somehow my username gave you the impression that I am a die hard fan of Style. But I am not. Mark Manson is my favourite of all. Also I've read many PUAs material; RSD videos, Savoy, Gambler, De Angelo etc. Style and Mystery are 2 of them. I simply don't like when people blindly criticize some people. As you said yourself that most people try to use the same routines and fail. So its the people who are to blame the most for misinterpreting and misusing any material instead of the routine or method.
It is only till I learned about internet marketing that you realise that these guru's are just normal people but perhaps with a good marketing skills. Not saying they are good or bad. I don't care.
But I will say. There are people on YouTube with shit marketing that are better than these popular (well marketer) guru's.
Totally agree with this. However I dont think Mystery and Style are that popular. Saw Styles videos of his seminar. There were only a few students. I think most popular now a days is RSD. But again its all based on what I've seen on internet. Those who actually live in these countries would know better.
Anyways Its upto the person to use whatever he thinks is the right way. Test experience and judge yourself. Who knows what might work for you. There's really no point in debating whos better and whos not.
