Worse Than Placebo

I saw a comment on another blog about whether (Roissyite) game does better than a placebo.  This is a very good question.  Comparisons to placebo are done because taking a placebo is doing something.  It creates an apples to apples comparison to see if whatever you’re testing actually works or if the results you are getting just come from the act of doing something regardless of that thing is.

What happens when you compare (Roissyite) game to taking a placebo?  It’s worse, a lot worse.  We all know how (Roissyite) gamers fail to get laid.  Their rates of success are so low that is would be well below taking a placebo.   That means that they would get laid more by taking placebos than game.  Anything other than game is more likely to get you laid than game.

This is also why (Roissyite) gamers refuse to experimentally test game and reject science in general.  An actual scientific experiment testing (Roissyite) game would show that it doesn’t work and is worse than taking a placebo.

This isn’t limited to (Roissyite) game either.  All dating advice would should the same result of being worse than taking a placebo if tested in a scientific experiment.  This should not shock anyone since all dating advice is a vehicle for misandry and not actually improving your results in dating and relationships.

  1. also,

    I was over at Genderratic and I stated that as a never married man with no children I wouldn’t get seriously involved with a divorcee or single mom. (I also stated firmly I KNOW I don’t have children unlike creepster male feminist extraodinaire Hugo Schyzer who would say “not that I know of, tehehe.”) A feminist virtually freaked out. Then when I defended myself and said that a non smoker (of either gender) might refuse to get invovled with a smoker for example, why is this different…..

    She finally back pedaled and said “well, I was only trying to help you get laid.”

  2. “All dating advice would should the same result of being worse than taking a placebo if tested in a scientific experiment”

    So all dating advice will set people backwards? You REALLY believe that?! You can learn how to improve yourself in pretty much any way- intellectually (any particular field you choose), socially (how to win friends and influence people, the 7 habits of highly effective people), physically… Yet you’re saying that all dating advice results in people going backwards? That makes no sense at all.

    I wrote this post for people who think that game (learning about how to interact with women) doesnt work. Feel free to say why you disagree: 3rdmilleniummen.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/game-doesnt-work/

    • Don’t use manipulative language like “so all dating advice will set people backwards” this isn’t a roissysphere blog where words mean different things depending on whose reading it and the rest of the fanatics will dog pile someone who disagree, here words are specifically chosen, and carefully too.

      I realize you are mostly here to promote page views for your blog, and that’s up to blackpill to address, but coming here displaying false premises to invite the fanatic dog pile is a waste of your time,

      That said, game is a fraud and nonsense that will set you backwards.

      The state of the dating advice industry has nothing to do with whether self improvement is possible or not. You people constantly pull the canard about “self improvement” to hide your lack of results and that the dating advice industry would fail in independent scientific experiments to test its effectiveness. We care about experimentally verified results here not supporting an industry with an anti-male agenda.

      - intellectually (any particular field you choose)

      Prove it by getting a Ph.d in quantum physics.

      • “Self improvement” to hide your lack of results.

        Haha. Dude, I am incredibly average on the attractiveness scale. Yet people around me comment again and again at the incredible quality of women I am able to pull. A couple of nights ago a female friend who was fairly drunk openly said to me that she can’t believe the standard of women I continually get. There’s anything BUT a lack of results.

        “Independent scientific experiments to test it’s effectiveness”
        That would indeed be fascinating to pit guys against each other to see how they do. In the meantime, you can watch shows like Keys to the VIP to see how guys who’ve learned game and have some structure do immeasurably better than some of the poor chumps who haven’t. Again, my friends who don’t know game are continually amazed and frustrated at the quality of girls my friends and I who have studied it can pull.

          Oh really?

          Look at the guy who does nothing but be good looking and dumb and compare him to the guy doing the magic tricks and dumb PUA stuff.

        • I remember that show, it was on the comedy network, as in you should be laughing at it, it came on right between this hour has 22 minutes and the daily show. I sit here, finishing up my grading to put my marks in to go home and pack to head home to Italy for Christmas, and someone actually recommends a comedy show for dating advice. Should I get my DIY tips from red green while I’m at it?

        • Regardless of whether it’s comedy or not, 3rd Millenium Man claims that the show consistently shows how guys who study game will consistently outperform guys who do study game. Yet one of the first episodes I look at, the one I linked to, shows the guy who studied game doing worse while the guy who doesn’t use game and tries half as hard does great.

          Anything gamers come up with that they think “proves” game works in reality shows the exact opposite. It’s like they live in the Star Trek Mirror Universe.

        • Haha diddums why the pent up anger and frustration? Did a girl reject you in high school and you still haven’t gotten over it?

          That’s the kind of shaming women do. What’s next from the female playbook, accusing us of having small cocks or being gay?

        • What a dumbass. Shitty trolls make me laugh, ya I’m real angry lol. Maybe you can say i’ve caught feelings next? Maybe post trollface?

          Just another keyboard jockey making up stories on the internet. When does your book come out?

        • If I find it for a dollar at value village like bang, out of morbid curiosity, like slowing down when passing by a car crash. I don’t think you have a wide enough audience that the book will ever make it far enough that I’ll ever see it, even bang was a one in a billion chance.

  3. Somewhat off topic, but have you guys noticed how the Good Man Project is melting down currently? Seems like all the feminists are pointing their cannons at it for some articles about rape it published. Who knows, soon we may not have GMP to kick around anymore.

  4. I don’t know anything about GMP except that they had a Roissysphere guy writing there for a whole. Same racist guy who wrote this gem of a piece that Blackpill rightfully mocked where he said Newt Gingrich was a PUA using game principles on the electorate.
    https://omegavirginrevolt.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/a-gamer-says-newt-gingrich-is-a-pua-what/

    Of course Newt’s campaign immediately crashed and burned shortly after that article so maybe Chuck Ross was right and Gingrich was using game principles, since his methods failed.

      That gave me a chuckle hhhhh :D nice! :D

  5. Here’s how I used to explain this…

    —> GAME doesn’t exist

    —> About 99% of the people who BELIEVE IN IT, swear on it, and waste years on it, get NO RESULTS (measurable improvement in dating life/sex life)

    —> The 1% who DO get some improvement (more dates or more sex) do so based on placebo.

    So yes, there is a placebo effect, but even that kicks in rarely. It works in those 1% of cases where someone will read about game and because he believes it he will merely approach, hit on and make moves on MORE women than he did before and hences get more.

    More attempts = more hits

    It’s only a multiplier though. If you’ve always failed (zero hits), trying more will not get you more, since multiplying zero is still zero.

  6. Just my opinion – dating advice is male-hatred.

    I’d have to say more so when it comes from a woman…

    Not only is that a conflict of interest (that only suckers would fall for), how would any woman know anything about “picking up chicks”?

    Clearly, when the women give advice it is more a “do what I tell you, or I will deprive you of sex” threat.

    Of course, the male gamers you are unhealthily obsessed with are not any better.
