Hi Ms. Walsh,
Very good post! And in many ways, is right in line with what Robert Greene says in his The Art of Seduction, as well as my own post on the many “styles” of Game:
For the record, I’ve been told that I’m a combo of #s 6 & 7, with a dash of #5, LOL. Would be interested in what you (or anyone else) thinks.
I think Aldonza is correct to note that in general, Women tend to be drawn to complexity, so those guys who are a kind of blend of traits – the more disparate the better – are the ones who tend to be most sought after.
Enjoying the convo!

Also, Ms. Walsh,
You mentioned actor Matt Damon in his breakout role in Good Will Hunting, and I thought your assessment of his character there was on point.
However, everyone knows that his signature role is that of amnesiac CIA “Black Ops” Field Officer Jason Bourne. I am curious to know, where he would rank in your list above, and why?

With all due respect, and this comes as no surprise to those who know me, I find that a great deal of what we know as “Game” is terribly context dependent. “Social dominance” means something entirely different depending on where you are.
For Anglo White, middle class guys and above, “social dominance” plays out along the lines you mentioned. However, if you’re of the Jersey Shore guys – or – if you’re a Brotha or a Boricqua in the hood – social dominance very much depends on your ability to crack heads and bust a cap in someone should the need arise for it. Indeed, being perceived as such a Man, does real wonders for one’s social dominance.
