    Default Signalling extreme (male) aggresion

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    There were a couple of instances that I remember, were I was in the vicinity of some guys...and how should I put

    it...I felt that they were dangerous. In the first case they were 3 big guys dressed in black leather and talking on

    the street, and I thought to my self when I walked near them "I wouldnt wanna mess with them" .

    Another instance

    was when I was in a mall in a hi-fi shop and I was alone in an audition room and there enters this kinda skinny

    normal dressed guy and the first thought when I saw him was (and I kid you not) "he's gona fuckin put a knife to my

    throat and ask me all of my money". I really felt that I was in danger. I vividly remember this scene even now after

    5 months and I think to my self he must've been some ex-convict or something...

    What is that ? Androsterone?

    Lots of androsterone ?

    It's likely that it is all by

    the sense of sight, how big they are or how they behave or maybe physical appearance. Pheros could have possibly

    enhanced that.

    I think a person's looks has a

    lot ot do with it. We are trained from a very young age to think certain things about the way a person looks. That

    includes how they dress and how they act. Body language has a lot to do with it as well. Some people have body

    language that says "I'm dangerous, don't screw with me."

    I also believe that high levels of -none will put out

    that sense, especially when combined with the body language.

    I agree, it's mostly you

    reacting to the appearance and body language of these men. A large buff friend of mine often complains people are

    afraid of him at first: little kids cry, young women flee and guys treat him very carefully. I told him he's too

    serious looking and coupled with his size equals menacing appearance. He's working on smiling more, shaved his Foo

    Manchu and wears brighter colored clothing. I told him to grow hair on his head. The skinhead look tends to impart a

    mean and criminal vibe. He's actually pretty harmless. It's the small skinny sweet talkin' ones that nail ya when

    you're not looking.

    Yeah of course appearance

    matters, but there has to be some pheromones involved in this.

    Talking about my second experience that I

    described, that guy as I said was wearing normal clothes, was built like me, and his face...I dont remember his face

    but I think I remember it looked...uncared-for. But he only came in the room for like 40 seconds, he looked at some

    speakers, said nothing, and then went back. There was no body language.

    There is always body language.

    We pick it up from the moment we first see a person.

    But I do agree that there were probably pheromones

    involved, most likely -none.

    Talk about an OD! Body language takes on a whole new meaning in that scenario.



    That aside, I think it was A. Lincoln who said, upon rejecting an applicant to a post because of his sour

    aspect, "each of us is responsible for his own manner of bearing", or something like that.

    I think we each

    present what we are inside of ourselves, good for good, bad for bad.
