Dr. David Tian: Boom, stop! I’m David Tian, and in this video, I answer the question: Is being decisive attractive? Welcome to the Man Up show.

Masculinity for the Intelligent Man. I’m David Tian, Ph.D. and this is Man Up!

Hi, I’m David Tian, Ph.D., and for over the past 12 years, I’ve been helping hundreds of thousands of people in over 87 countries attain success, happiness, and fulfilment in life and love, and welcome to the Man Up show. We are in Florence right now and this is the St. Maria Cathedral. Gorgeous cathedral. We are in between where Michelangelo’s David is, and the Uffizi Gallery where we’re going next, and just getting some lunch. So, nice backdrop here to answer a question. Actually, this was a post in the Man Up Facebook group, and it wasn’t a question per se but it’s a question that I hear a lot. So, I’m going to use this from Jeremy. So, thank you, Jeremy. So, I’m going to read a couple of paragraphs here real quick.

“I was chatting with a friend over the weekend about life and I noticed something: He was very good at thinking for himself. It reminds me of how early in my 20s when no woman wanted me, it felt. I used to be so indecisive, and this obviously turned off a lot of women.” And that’s the point I want to make, is that a lot of guys are super indecisive, especially if they’re overly analytical. So, that’s point one. And then he blends it with a couple other points, and I just want to clarify for Jeremy that these are separate points. And for anyone else who thinks that they’re one thing, they are related, but they’re different. It’s important to realize that they’re different.

Okay, so the next part he goes into is, “I was too in my head, and then when I tried to do practice attracting women, I would rarely ever follow through on whatever I had consumed because all of the advice seemed to contradict each other. Having self-leadership in the sense of being able to think for yourself and make your own decision is one of the hallmarks of a grounded masculine man. After all, women want a man who has certainty in who he is and where he’s going.” We got a question in the comments.
