Online Chatting and The 4 Magic Questions

Back in the days, when I was learning pickup techniques from pickup artists, I ran into “The Magic Questions pattern” by Jack Ellis (the author of “Forbidden Patterns”). The purpose of these questions is to have a nice and fun topic to talk to women whom you just approached in a public setting. Women like it when men talk about them, compliment them or do anything thing that make them feel special.

The Magic Questions

Here are the magic questions, ask them in any order:

  1. Visualize yourself in a white room. You’re in a bed and everything is white. How do you feel?
  2. What is your favorite animal? What qualities do you see it as having?
  3. What is your favorite color? How does it make you feel when you think about it?
  4. Imagine yourself on a beach. Nobody is around and the ocean is right in front of you. What do you do?

Take mental note of the answers because you will have to interpret the answers back to them.

What the answers mean

After you finish asking the questions and taking notes, it is time to interpret the answers back to the interviewee. The meaning of each question is as follows:

  1. This is how they view death and dying
  2. This is how their friends view them
  3. This is how they view themselves
  4. This is how they view sex

Putting it into practice

Let me give you an example. You meet a random girl that you want to approach and talk to. You can use the four magic questions as a nice conversation opener: Continue reading

PUA: The “who lies more” opener

Hello readers,

In this blog post, I share with you a PUA (PickUp Artist) technique that I learned many years ago (around 2005). It is about an opener or a way to break the ice and talk to girls in coffeeshops especially if you are a shy guy.

The “Who lies more” opener is called an indirect opener and said to be originated by Style, author of “The Game” book.

I got to use this opener as soon as I read about it. Basically, all you have to do is find a girl or group of girls you want to approach and ask her or them:

Excuse ladies, my friends and I were chatting the other day and were wondering about something. I want to ask you: Who do you think lies more? Girls or Boys?

This opener will not get you in trouble, but nonetheless, be ready to hear some unexpected or cold replies. Here are some replies I got from some of the girls I approached in coffeeshops:

What a weird question, are you doing some sort of statistics!?


Well, I don’t know, sorry can’t help you answer this one.

Or simply cutting the conversation short and answering me coldly:


For me, after some field tests, it appears that you should have more openers and try to guess which opener to chose before approaching a girl.

Or you know what? Just be natural, smile and say “Hi” 🙂
