    Default Correlation between mood and phero effect

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    As you may remember from some previous posts of mine, I usually OD on -none, but recently started

    appreciating a -none plus SOE (orLT) and EVEN A-314 simultaneous use; I usually get quite a number of blatant hits,

    which I was not capitalizing upon in the past (at the time I was engaged, though). I, however, felt that statistical

    distribution of hits was uneven.
    By reading various posts, I was already aware of a correlation between mood and

    hits, but I tried a little experiment all the same: for thirty days in a row, I recorded self perception of my mood

    and level of tiredness in four categories per item, three times a day, i.e., early morning (at least for me), late

    afternoon and late evening; I then concocted a mix in a large batch (must be tremendous, as I have always been below

    my standard hits, but ... it is 9ml sandalwood TE, 1ml NPA, two SOE gel packs, 10 ml cologne, ten drops of A314) and

    recorded hits (work, non-work, dance-related environment).
    Now, without hassling you with raw data, I must say

    that there is an overall 0.95 (enormous!) correlation between mood and hits, and slight less negative correlation

    (still statistically significant, though) between perceived tiredness and hits. Correlation between tiredness and

    hits is weaker in the work environment (but probably because my perception of tiredness is lower in mornings and

    afternoons that during evenings), and correlation between happiness and hits is weaker in the dance-related

    environment (Argentine tango, though, which is sort of sad per se).
    The slope of the line is steep near the origin,

    and then milder (i.e., if you are not really happy or feel really well, number of hits suddenly decrease, but if you

    feel sort of OK you do not get many more hits than if you feel really down). This may depend, however, upon the fact

    that I do not get enough hits to make the difference. I.e., six to one makes a significant difference, but one to

    zero may be not significant.
    I admit that the "experiment" is ill conceived; that I should have kept various pheros

    separated, and should have subcategorized "hits"; I should also have asked an external opinion on my perceived

    happiness and tiredness. But by doing this I should have gone for a much longer time, and I wanted to go back to my

    usual phero signature (i.e., tons of -none, a lot of SOE and a little A-314).
    In a nutshell: if this has some value

    (which I doubt of), do not use pheros to get hits if you do not feel great. Otherwise, you may get much less than

    you have bargained for.

    Once the initial excitment is

    over, my experience is 'mone apps have little or no influence on my mood. I've grow accustom to them from years of

    near daily use and I just act like myself. However, like you noted, your mood has a lot to do with the effectiveness

    of 'mones. I wouldn't bother to use them if I was feeling really negative, e.g., depressed or angry. They make it

    worse by amping up and projecting the negative vibe. So, even if you're a great actor, many people can easily sense

    something is wrong. Not the effect I want...

    Yeah, Mary Jane does take it all

    away. Unfortunately I won't be getting any work done thereafter.

    great experiment. what do you make between the relationship of

    pheromones and how they make you feel?

    I suspect there is a weak

    correlation, at least for me, but I feel it would take a lot of time to "prove" whether my feelings are true (or,

    better, not significantly false). I have been using pheros daily over a period of some years, and I very often

    overdose. After the first few TEs, I have not been getting "phero buzz" any more (and I recently kept sniffing a

    newly opened bottle for a quite long time, but nothing - never used PI, though). Possibly, when I am loaded with a

    gross phero OD and I do not get hits, my mood worsens as I realize that I just wasted several bucks, or that I

    should not have overdosed, or that my choice of ratios among various products was wrong (luckily enough, euro has a

    decent exchange rate these days, so I will keep going).

    BTW: I bought Master, and started applying a couple of

    inches above my upper lip, just under my nose. I do not detect any relevant effect (thinking of it, I may feel sort

    of less restless than usual, but...)
