I just stumbled upon this forum. But I've been onto my Game for a (quite short) while now.
So, I figured I'll put my 1 baht into this topic.
First of all, as for many others AA is the worst obstacle for me in the Game. But I never try to spot their flaws, imagine that I'm in a video game or play any scenario. That just doesn't do it for me. That's why this post might contribute anything to someone like me.
First of all. When I identified my AA as something that could be cured (when The Game woke me up), I started working on it from the bottom. To really get good at approaching you must change your state of mind! Become the NLP! I have really improved my body language and energy in just a little more than a half year by doing the things below (among other things).
- Never just give short answers to people in daily situations like the lunch restaurant and such. Don't just say "Thanks" when you get the food. Try to get a smalltalk or a smile. Pull every loose thread out there and see what happens.
- Never look things up when you can ask someone. Make the world revolve around you. I will never let the smallest thing pass by in my head without getting an answer (what was that song, who played that character, ...). I simply just ask the first person passing by. Don't focus on just asking HB8-10... the point is to become more spontaneous.
- Experiment with your body language every day. You must get it right and natural before you try to use it in a set. Try to see what catches attention and what doesn't when you are expressing yourself.
If people can't remember you from a conversation/situation you're doing something wrong.
The point I'm trying to make is that you must change your whole state of mind, not just overcome the AA when you see a HB10. You must feel the need for social interaction... and she's just there to give it to you.
Hypnotica makes a lot of sense (I never thought I'd actually say that
when he is talking about stepping out of your comfort zone. Look it up! It will change your whole personality.
I hope it's was possible to extract some sense out of this...
