For men is an unbeatable Biohack for motivation, energy, aggression and improving overall mood.
A lot of guy's issue with social anxiety is that they lack social motivation. After a long day or week of work, they just cannot be bothered to go out.
Or perhaps, if you're like a lot of guys I talk to, you would be motivated to go out and practice your social skills if you knew you were going to be connecting with intellectual equals. If you knew you were going to go out and meet people who you could have stimulating conversations with, who you were actually attracted to, you would actually go to the trouble of getting out of the house. When you do go out and socialize you often find yourself bored by the quality (or virtual lack) of (coherent) conversation. It seems like you have to get so far outside of your comfort zone to meet people who seem like they are barely a few IQ points north of being retarded. Why even bother?
This is a bit of a catch-22 because to really connect with the people you want to; people that actually turn you on in one way or another, you are going to need to develop your social skills. Right now, if we are honest, your social skills are probably not up to par to connect meaningfully with these people.
Following the Limitless Mindset model of High Leverage Skill Set Acquisition, we want to learn fast, we don't want to bash our heads against the wall for years trying to learn something. High leverage social skillset acquisition entails taking social risks and getting a lot of reference experiences in a relatively short period, like the 10 weeks in the Social Anxiety Protocol.
Are you going to take all those social risks within your current social group or with your coworkers? Probably not. Unless you don't mind losing your current group of friends or jeopardizing your career.
So to take these social risks you really need to embrace connecting with, we will call them, intellectual subordinates. You need to get excited about taking social risks with the people you perceive as (maybe) being below your level. This is a bit of a catch-22 if you are not motivated to socialize with anything less than the highest caliber of people. This is where No FAP is key. It will double or even triple your motivation to get out and get social with everyone.
