Why Use Cold Reading Techniques?

When I used to do 1 on 1 training, I noticed a lot of guys were not attuned to their surroundings.

As a result, they’d miss IOI’s, miss opportunities to escalate with the girl, and actually do the poor girls a disservice by not responding appropriately when they’re given an opportunity.

With that in mind, I’ve dreamed up a simple cold reading routine you can do to improve your cold reading techniques and observational skills.

I actually did these cold reads myself for quite some time when I was out and about and it spiced things up for me.

NB: For a full guide on how to approach women, please check out the linked article.

Cold Reading Example Exercise

1:/ As you see people walk past, try to quickly “label” them in your mind (or even in a low pitched voice) and make it humourous. Caricature them and say the first thing that pops into your mind. See Below:

Here are some example cold reads:

• David Hasslehof’s slightly dishevelled older brother
• Black and white t shirt, burglar
• Red hair, black boots – filthy in bed
• Long coat, flat cap – Inspector Gadget
• Fat loudmouth, belly hanging over jeans : candidate for Mastermind

ANYTHING. The first thing that comes into your mind. Doesn’t matter how bad it is.

Practice these humourous cold reads throughout the day, whenever you can.

This simple little exercise forces you to do three things:

The Purporse Of Cold Reading

1:/ Bring your focus to the present moment. Critical.

2:/ Develop the ability to make mini cold reads up on the spur of the moment in a humourous way. (I firmly believe on point humour – at least of this variety – is a learned skill and can be improved.)

3:/ Gets you used to observing your surroundings. You may find you’re missing out on IOI’s from girls that you didn’t even know were there.

Why Cold Reading Is Important

In the pick up world it is often forgotten that you’re operating in 3 dimensions. Sensitivity to the feedback that you’re receiving is critical. Cold Reading Exercises like this help to build the observational muscles so that you can get used to “reading” your environment, the girl – and the feedback that you’re getting.

PS You can use these example cold reading exercises as a springboard to start to improve your own attraction builders…Back in the day I used to mix sexual cold reads with humour and it’s very powerful.

Start using these cold reads today to improve your own spontaneity and awareness of your surroundings.
