Dead Poets Society and Inner Game

Get Your Inner Game Handled – Inspiration from Dead Poets Society

how to attract women art of seduction gurus

Masters of the art of seduction: Hypnotica, Steve Piccus, Johnny Soporno, and Erika Awakening

Omg, I just woke up with that movie in my head. Time to go rent it again. One of Robin Williams’ best, and I love Robin Williams.

So, inspired by Sinn and Cameron Teone, who have recently been using classic movies and other pop culture to illustrate game theory … let me point out that Dead Poets Society is a beautiful example of teaching guys inner game. Indeed, the whole movie is like an Inner Game Bootcamp!

At its core, it’s about getting the guys back in touch with their passion and aliveness. Helping them to be more spontaneous and uninhibited, to embrace all sides of themselves. To be willing to find their own truth regardless of other people’s opinions. To follow their dreams. And I do believe, if I remember correctly, that one side effect is that they started doing better with women … They start getting their inner game handled.


Steven: I’ll try anything once.

Dalton: Yeah, except sex.


Keating: A man is not “very tired”. He is exhausted. Don’t use “very sad.” Use, come on Mr. Overstreet, you twerp.

Knox: Morose?

Keating: Exactly. “Morose.” Language was developed for one endeavor, and that is, Mr. Anderson. Come on, are you a man or an amoeba? Mr. Perry.

Neil: Uh, to communicate?

Keating: Nooo!! To woo women!


Lol :-)

One of my favorite quotes from Dead Poets Society:

“I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life … to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. – Emerson

And people wonder why I am SO into this seduction stuff. You can get lots of inspiration for handling your inner game PUA from Hollywood!

  1. Right now I’m watching Dead Poets Society again … damn this movie is good! It has inner game written all over it.

    “Gentlemen, you will learn to think for yourselves again.” :-)

  2. CamerooOOOOOne,

    Why so grumpy? ;-)

    (yes, I’m teasing, you are SO sensitive about this PUA stuff … lol :-)

    J/k, you are always welcome on the blog, even if you are an “original guru” community founder who scoffs at the community. See ya in LA honey.

  3. Cameron Teone says:

    Errrrr…. I guess it’s a matter of semantics and perspective, but to set the record straight: I don’t teach “Game Theory,” talk about “Game” or “Sarge”, nor am I a “PUA” or a “Pick Up Artist.”

    (And you already know how I feel about most of the guys who teach “Pick Up” in the seduction community.” ;-)

    Other than that, yeah, I find Movies to be a great vehicle for teaching.

    Hope all is well with you

  4. @ Doc, lol :-)

    @ David B., yeah I ordered it on Amazon today too. I think it will give me even more inspiration for the e-book. There is some really powerful “natural attraction” and inner game material in that movie.

    @ Anonymous, thanks for keeping me on my toes, and I’m glad I have the literati among my blog readers. That said, I’m also glad about the mistake cuz otherwise Entropy wouldn’t have had the opportunity to riff off of it in his comment above and on his blog:

    See, everything happens for a reason! :-)

  5. I just got the movie because of your recommendation! As I was looking through it I saw that Robin Williams plays in it! I love his movies!

  6. Doc Holliday says:

    Erika said:
    Woo, woo, woo

    Entropy said:
    More woo, woo, woo

  7. for the sake of accuracy, “I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately..” is henry david thoreau, from “walden”, though its my guess emerson would not be offended. but a man goes in lives in the woods, gives up all the comforts…he should have his words. r.i.p.

  8. Oh, now you’ve gone too far Erika. Emerson’s my fucking main man… man.

    You’ll like this one:

    “Time and space are but physiological colors which the eye makes, but the soul is light; where it is, is day; where it was, is night; and history is an impertinence and an injury if it be any thing more than a cheerful apologue or parable of my being and becoming.”

    – Emerson, “Self-Reliance”

    Eat that, inner game gurus. :)
