I've never needed to use cold reading techniques either. My version of “after opener” seems to be totally different to everyone else’s. And this is from in field direct tests.
Id open a girl, anything offhand, that wouldn’t be NON hitting on her, (Always making sure my energy level, voice tonality and boy language is good in the set), than id brake into their world, sometimes not really even looking at her, sortove like oh yeah your there whatever.. and talk about some random thing i saw, 2 blond girls were fighting each other and one was wearing the exact same shoes as my target (or any piece of clothing to bridge a relationship) I continue talking about how one ripped the others bra, and all this commotion happening. Then stop calibrate, watch her response as I’m doing the routine, and continue into DHV ie.. "We never see that stuff, when I go on tour, my manager and photographer are usually by my side and nothing ever happens to us.. oh well.." Than id calibrate again make sure the girl is interested, by this time shes trying to figure me out, so I tell her, 'OH I learned the best thing on the road, this old wise man once told me.. actually rather then tell you let me demonstrate, have you ever heard of the cat race? " than id draw all over her hand make her laugh, DHV properly again, like notice her eye movements, ra ra.. than id stop, and say, " So what about you? I don’t even know you stranger, you look like the geeky book worm type! I’m so right aren’t I? I thought so, that’s it, divorce!
Shed laugh then invest, so on.. I don't possibly know how anyone can use cold reading so early in a set. Id use it when i isolate, make perceptive comments about her and flip her out.. Do the cube or something.. This of course is day game, I assume that there are subtle difference between night and day sarge.
I'll try the other way next sarge see how it goes.
Anyone got some cold reading ideas? how would you use them at the start?
