Rob replied to Marcus Steele's discussion Becoming a real man of respect
"That's great that you want to do better. It's natural for men to have a will to dominate. It's also natural for humans to be egocentric. You grow into a higher level of consciousness not by rejecting your natural tendency to take…"

Rob replied to Dakota Caraway's discussion Interesting article about men
"Women are frustrated with their men for the same reason they're frustrated with their children: how they condition us to behave is not the way they want us to behave. They have no idea they're doing it, and if they did, they would…"

Rob replied to Ben's discussion Is it possible to change your personality?
"Yes, it's possible to change your personality. Over time, it's an inevitability. Mostly, people become more of what they already are. Water flows down the path of least resistance and so do personalities as they evolve. But it is also…"

Rob replied to Chu Kim's discussion Sociopaths - Advantaged or Disadvantaged?
"They're not usually "true" sociopaths (see explanation below), they simply share certain personality traits that are not particularly dangerous in and of themselves. Some of those are advantageous, like not responding to tragedies or…"

Rob replied to Chu Kim's discussion Sociopaths - Advantaged or Disadvantaged?
"It depends on the sociopath, the context, and how you define "advantage". Someone mentioned guys in prison. Those are "low-functioning sociopaths". Politicians are "high-functioning sociopaths"; they test for…"

"Dakota, it sounds like you might be a little overwhelmed, and not surprisingly so. You've some profound life-changes happen to you in quick succession. It is not unusual for that situation to trigger anxiety and then depression. I am deeply…"

Rob replied to Morgan Land's discussion Dealing with gym anxiety
"Howdy, Morgan. You're right that it's your own self-consciousness. The other guys don't look at you and think "Hey, look at the little weakling over there. Ha hah!" You do that to yourself. That's a self-esteem and body…"

"+1  Good work Todd. I feel it a waste of energy to type or even talk-to-text anymore on this thread. Somewhere on the blog is something about circle of influence. . . that's a pretty big deal. Too bad most people don't see the value…"

Rob replied to Mark Last Name's discussion The sad feeling where you feel gutted after reading a book that ends sad.
"I remember being mildly depressed after reading War and Peace. You remind yourself that it's only a fictional story and the characters are not real people. You react to their fictional sorrows because your "mirror neurons" react to…"

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
