Will LARPing help me get better at persuasion?

Society has no incentive to change for me, I am not going to wait for it. Culture at lest in the United States is Post Truth, which means it transformed into a lying contest. Is LARPing an exercise that will train up my skills in the right areas so I can win the contest and get more of what I want out of life?

…Why would society be obligated to change for you?


If by that, you mean lying, then no. Eventually the truth is going to get out and it’s going to bite you in the ass.


It is something I been told to encourage me to be patient and hold the status quo.

How long is eventually? If it is 2000 years, I wold be long dead by then, and more than likely forgotten.

I hate to break it to you, but whoever told you that is spewing bullshit. No one is obligated to do anything for you. You’re not the center of the universe.

Way less than 2,000 years. Hell, way less than 5 years.

So let me see if I understand this correctly: you’re upset because you think people lie a lot in the dating scene, so your solution is to also lie?


That’s my point. I want to be better at it than they are.

Not just the dating scene. The labor scene as well. Have you seen Grind Reel?

Less than 5 years is still quite a long time to have an information advantage.

I’m confused. You want society to change, but you also want to take advantage of what society is now?

Doesn’t matter. It can still fuck up your life. Because once people find out you lied, they’re going to spread that around and make it difficult for you to find another job/partner.

Society isn’t going to change on a dime. It is like a ship, but bigger and turns much slower. Only winners of the contest get a voting share on turning angles of the wheel of culture.

I disagree. It does matter. Once you have enough leverage, you don’t need a job because you can create jobs. People will hand power to known liars if they think they will get something out of it, and most won’t even have enough awareness to be embarrassed if they don’t actually get what was promised.

@Prophet was being kind saying 5 years. It could be just days and that will ruin a lot and not help you at well. Some people are human lie detectors and will call you out the first time you say something. If you larp in here for example it’s a matter of a a few hours before the lies are all exposed.


It doesn’t look like they could stop the culture from becoming a lying contest.

I asked for a LARP reading like a year ago and didn’t get one, and the user that claimed they can do one closed their account and left.

I mean just because people lie doesn’t me that others not know. The news is full of people caught in lies and they lose everything.

So they know and don’t care? The news is full of people who are caught in lies and don’t lose anything and people who are not caught in lies and lose everything.

I mean id say yeah, it could work. Practice is practice after all. Im assuming you mean engaging in LARPS or online RP and not just lying to people. Taking time to become someone else and practice skills will Ofc bleed over into more normal life. It could alo help build confidence.

That’s not how that works.

People are actually less likely to give you a job if you’re a reputed liar because it could potentially cause issues in the company. If you’re not seen as even remotely reliable, even if you do have something beneficial, then they’re not going to bother because it’s more trouble than it’s worth.

Bruh… You say that like all humans are actual telepaths. And there’s no reliable method to make sure everyone tells the truth 24/7. It’s up to you to use your judgement skills to either call someone out or let it slide.

No, they care a lot. Depending on the circumstances, they either have the means to do something about it or they don’t.

  1. The news doesn’t cover everything that goes on. You only see a part of the story. And a damaged reputation doesn’t mean you suddenly lose all of your money and destroy your relationships. It’s a whole process.

  2. The whole point of lying is to tell people something truthful and never get caught. The only reason those stories are there is because they fucked up somewhere along the line.

Unless they are hiring you then your choices are take it or leave it.

This is my point.

Looks like more the latter than the former to me.

I’m not 100% sure what you’re asking, but if you want to improve at persuasion you could try some negotiation practice.

Just because other people lie to get ahead doesn’t mean you should, it comes down to principals. If you change who you are for short term gratification you lose your authentic being, you form a persona for work, dating, whatever.

You’re better off working on your flaws and being true to yourself than masquerading as a womanizer multi-millionaire.

If you have a true desire to be persuasive or seductive for that matter, work with the proper diety and read the proper book. Persuasion is essentially selling, read “The way of the wolf” if you wanna sell to anyone.


No. We’d have a lot of new members coming out as full on casanova. I wish larping would raise my charisma stat. Actually it probably does

The most charming users are probably just the best liars. The eternal LARP we are totally partaking in marches on. Shhhhh

How do I measure my principles so I verify I have one against lying. I really don’t like who I am at the moment. Too impotent. Authenticity is just another lie.

Not being able to lie good enough in a lying contest is clearly a flaw.

Did you read it? Is it working on me?

Pretty much.

Alright bro, good luck.

Why won’t you say if you read the book or not?
