Most of my life is based on avoiding normal people. Recently I entered the belly of the beast as a favor to a friend. After a few weeks of being around normals, I told my friend to never ask such a thing of me again or else we’d be done. I did, however, learn a few things about normal people.
1. Normal people lack state control.
When normal people are in a “bad mood,” they’ll say, “Don’t talk to me! I’m in a bad mood!” They simply won’t make room for the possibility that a mood is really just a state, and that we can change our states at will.
If something bad happens to a normal person, his whole day is ruined. Just ruined! Life is over!
This is due to a normal person’s weak nature. “The strong do what they will and the weak suffer what they must.”
Like all other human beings, I sometimes find myself in a “funk” or a “bad mood.” I do not passively accept that mood or allow it to rule me. I will myself into feeling better, more stronger, more invincible.
2. Normal people love wasting your time with questions.
If a normal person sees you with a green juice, they’ll ask you 10,000 questions. Answering their questions is a waste of time because they aren’t going to take action.
They aren’t actually curious or genuinely interested in your novel approach to life. They are just bored and unable to occupy themselves with their own thoughts.
Rather than watch television, they want you to give them attention and waste your time on them. Unless they are paying you, do not talk to normal people unless you view yourself as the intellectual equivalent of the Idiot Box.
3. Normal people are passive aggressive and try destroying your momentum.
This relates to point 2. When a normal person asks a question, they aren’t really asking questions. They are making points in a passive aggressive way.
“You’re green juicing? Where will you get your protein,” some idiot asks. That really isn’t a question now, is it? It’s an assertion: “You’re not getting enough protein.” Do I look protein deprived to you? Why are you talking to me about protein when your body is a tub of lard?
3a. Normal people are cowards.
When a normal person pesters you with questions, watch what happens to them when you say, “What is your point? What are you really trying to say?”
They’ll backtrack and say, “Well, I wasn’t saying anything! I was just asking questions! Why are you getting so defensive?!”
When I ask someone a question, it’s because I want to hear his answer. If I want to start an argument, I’ll make my points. When you are dealing with a man rather than a normal, you don’t need to guess or wonder, “What is he getting at?”
4. Normal people know it all.
Normal people know that Testosterone Replacement Therapy is unhealthy. They know that anabolic steroids will kill you. They know that green juicing is unhealthy. They know that pro athletes aren’t on performance enhancing drugs.
Talk to a normal person, and you will talk to someone who knows everything about everything.
5. Normal people are sheep.
Points 4 and 5 present an interesting contradiction amongst normals. They know it all but at the same time won’t believe anything unless an authority figure spoon feeds it to them.
6. Normal people are a waste of your time.
Rationality does not work on these people. You can share facts and knowledge until you are blue in the face. Because they are sheep who know everything already, nothing you say will matter.
Normal people will not change unless the tee-vee tells them to. Do not waste your time on them. If your family is made up of normal people, avoid them as often as possible. (Or cut them out entirely, if need be.)
7. Normal people are easy to (legally) rip off.
You can make a lot of money selling get rich quick schemes to them. Look at some pictures of Internet Marketing seminars and you’ll see a lot of people getting fleeced. You can also make a lot of money selling people on “six packs in six minutes” products.
I personally don’t rip people off and would rather only sell my products and services to serious men on the quest from average to alpha. Dealing with normals makes me sick to my stomach, filthy, and in need of a cold shower.
If dealing with normal people doesn’t gross you out, however, know that there is a lot of money in scamming them. Most of the scams are even legal.
What have you learned from normal people?
