5 Types of Cold Reads
I’m in the midst of putting together a massive video on Cold Reading that I’m gonna be doing something with, not quite sure what yet, but I will keep you loyal blog readers updated on that first.
Cold reading is one of the best tools for interacting with women out there and is usually misused or underutilized by the guys in the community. The bible for cold readers is a book by Ian Rowland called “The Full Facts book Of Cold Reading.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough as it’s the basis for all the stuff I’m going to be talking about here and in the video.
By now you should know that cold reading is a technique for making it seem as if you know more about the girl than you actually do through some sort of “psychic” abilities. Cold reading can be used in attraction, comfort, qualification, on dates and more easily making it the most versatile skill you can learn.
1. The Rainbow Ruse: Rainbow ruses are statements where you credit a girl with a quality and it’s opposite.
For example: ” A lot of people think you’re the life of the party, but there are times where you just want to relax and let other people get the attention.”
2. Fine Flattery: Fine Flattery happens when you give the girl a positive quality compared to most people or others.
Ex: You are really smart but it’s the kind of smart that comes through life experience, like street smarts.
3. The Psychic credit: You credit the girl with being a little psychic herself
Ex: You probably feel like you’re psychic sometimes, like you’ll get a feeling that you should put make-up on before you go out and all of a sudden you run into someone you’re really glad you look your best for.”
4. Jacques Statements: J statements consist of a character statement based on the phase of life the girl is in. It’s named after Jacques in “As you like it” for his 7 stages of man speech.
Ex: “If you are honest about it, you often feel a sense of frustration that your own ideas and talents are not given enough recognition. There have been many times where you’ve had to struggle to get people to let you show them what you can do.
While you are mature enough to recognize that you have plenty to learn, and are willing to put time in to learn a new skill, you often find people too set in their ways and unable to appreciate the contributions you could make if only they let you.”
5. Barnum Statements: Named after PT Barnum these statements are generalized character statements that a majority of people will consider accurate about themselves.
Ex: ” You have a strong need for people to like and respect you.” ” You tend to feel you have a lot of unused capacity and that people don’t always give you full credit for your abilities.” ” Some of your hopes and goals are pretty unrealistic” “You are an independent and original thinker, you don’t just accept what you’re told.”
So those are 5 types of cold reads you could start using today, most of these examples were word for word out of Ian Rowland’s book but I have started to amass a master list of cold reads that are more pick-up centric and updated to work on the 2012 hot girl.
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
Here is a simple and innocent move that will instantly tell you if you're in the friend zone, or if she's waiting for you to kiss her.
