How to Have a Powerful Masculine Presence


presenceCruzer, a Girls Chase reader, comment on the article on entitlement asking:

Great article, but I want to ask you something that varies from the topic.

How does one have presence?

There are some people who walk in a room and are able to instantly command attention, even though they may not be the best look person in the room......so how do I do that?

Cruzer (and our other reader “John W.”) bring up a very important aspect of charisma and dominance: presence.

You know that feeling. That moment when a man walks into a room and everyone seems to stop for a minute and take notice. The women wonder who he is and why he has such a commanding energy. The men wonder whether he’s chill or an asshole and why this man seems to be so sure of himself.

Presence is that special character trait that very few men possess. And it is, in my opinion, one of the most difficult characteristics to develop. As I alluded to in my brief response to Cruzer, it is a combination of advanced mindsets and basic fundamentals. And something else as well.

Today I want to talk about presence; about how to develop that powerful and magnetic force that compels people toward you and forces them to take notice. Let’s go…


presence

“Presence” is defined as:

The noteworthy quality of poise and effectiveness, especially with a stately or distinguished bearing.

And I would add that combined with this poise is the inherent ability to command attention, both wittingly and without your own personal efforts.

But the thing about presence is that the more people are exposed to your particular presence, the less it affects them. Do you think that the White House chief of staff is awestruck very often by the U.S. president anymore? There’s probably a great respect; but awestruck? I doubt it.

So in developing your own presence, it’s important to understand that this energy is really only relevant with initial impressions, and when used properly, will help you bed women and make friends quicker.

When you have presence, it’s not only that you have solid fundamentals, and a sexy vibe, and are powerful and dominant. But you have all of these things and something that distinguishes you from everyone else. I need to get a formal post up on this at some point soon, but I think that every man who wants to reach the peak of his potential needs an “X factor.” He needs something that separates him from the pack, and gives him the certainty that he is in fact separate from the pack. But until then, I’ll just leave it at that.


Presences of the Rich and the Powerful

presenceInstead of starting at the foundation as I would normally do in an article like this, I’m going to start at the top. I’m going to get at the secret ingredient that definitively determines whether or not a man can have presence.

I used to have an acquaintance who was obscenely rich. Like fly to Europe on a whim and stay in a five-star resort kind of rich. The girls were obsessed with him. He was a good looking guy; not amazing, but definitely well above average. But it wasn’t his looks or even his money that drew women (and people in general) toward him.

He just had this energy – this transcendental devil may care attitude and lust for life that was absolutely intoxicating. You just wanted to be around him because you knew he knew something about the world that you didn’t. And you could never guess what he was going to do next.

I’ve noticed this trait in a lot of the present-hedonistic rich and high social status people that I’ve observed or met. Mind you, these are not the Warren Buffets who have a lot of money but live a pretty ordinary lifestyle. These are the people who are flashy with their money, but not necessarily in a selfish way. They just like showing people a good time and making life an adventure.

I noticed that what gives these people their certain je ne sais quoi is the fact that they live a life that most people can’t relate to. This may seem a bit counterintuitive at first, but let it sink in for a second. The reason why people are so drawn to these individuals is because they usher people into a world that would otherwise be inaccessible. And that’s magnetic. Basically, these are people like Jay Gatsby:

But you don’t have to be rich and famous to have this mindset (though, that is a pretty sure-fire way to get it). When I was a debater in high school, you could very often tell who was going to win the debate just based on how people walked into the room. You knew if they had a case that was better than yours. You knew whether or not they had abilities that exceeded your own. And if you were any good, you owned every room you walked into.

That is the secret to developing the distinguished mindset that is a part of presence. You just have to have insider knowledge. You have to be aware of a secret something about social interaction that most people have no clue about.

When it comes to ideas that are discussed on this site, these are things like understanding that women have dirty sexual fantasies and can’t be relegated to the Madonna/whore box. These are things like understanding that “just be yourself” is terrible advice, and that most men have the most backwards and hopeless views on success with women.

You have to live life in a way that most people aren’t familiar with. For those of you who read “manosphere” sites, this would be called living a “red pill” existence. People with insider knowledge of any higher social status world (celebrities, rich people, government officials, guys who are good with girls) are automatically separated from the “everyday” existence of most people. And when these people choose to let others into their world, they develop a mindset of wanting to find people who can handle it and understand them.


It’s Lonely at the Top

Interestingly enough, just like with “perfect 10” girls, people with powerful presences want to interact with and befriend people who are unaffected by their presence.

Imagine that a man with advanced skills with women walks into a bar. He knows that he can walk out of there with a girl. So that very fact gives him a one-up on all of the other guys in a bar. He then approaches many women, and meets three who are responding well to him that night. The first two are average, but the last one is a high-value woman who is able to challenge him intellectually and socially. She uses her graces to dodge a lot of his sure-fire techniques, and forces him to be at his peak in order to bed her.

Who is he going to take home? It’s obvious. Not only is this last woman the person the high-value man would choose to bed, she is also someone that he would open up to and let into his world (revealing his mindsets, worldview, etc.) after sleeping with her.

Similarly, this is what happens when the advanced man meets a beginner or intermediate who has high potential. This person isn’t quite at the same level yet, but he can relate to how the advanced man thinks, which most men cannot.

So if you’re trying to develop your level of presence, you should know that there will inevitably be a moment of alienation where the pool of people that you can truly relate to (that doesn’t mean just “get along” with or even superficially befriend, but really relate to) will drop dramatically. The price of your presence will be only feeling home in the circle that most people don’t have access to. Once again, refer to the Great Gatsby book/movie to see what I mean.

But if you’re going to be at that level anyway, you may as well enjoy the perks too. And there are many perks; such as confidence, social success, wonderful women, and high-value friends.

So, let’s look at the other aspects of developing an inimitable presence.


presence

One of the most important foundations (if not the most important fundamental aspect) of presence is body language. Because presence is tied so closely to first impressions, a lot of times people will judge you before you have the chance to introduce yourself (and before you or they have consciously realized that they have judged you). That means that you have to carry yourself in a way that exudes self-assurance.

There’s a great TED talk that addresses this very issue. I think that many TED talks should be taken with a grain of salt, but this talk is informative, important and definitely one of my favorites:

For those of you who don’t have the time or desire to watch the whole video, here is a brief synopsis:

  • Your mental state in social situations is greatly, and surprisingly, influenced by your body language

  • Weak body language (e.g. crossing your arms or placing your hand on your neck) will communicate awkwardness and nervousness to other people, and will greatly hinder your success in social situations from anywhere from a few minutes to an entire hour

  • On the other hand, strong body language (e.g. placing your hands on your hips or stretching out as much as possible) will communicate comfort and self-assurance to others, and can improve your success for that same amount of time

  • It takes only 2 minutes of changed bodily posture to greatly affect your subconscious confidence either positively or negatively

  • And anecdotally, the “fake it ‘til you make it” strategy can be surprisingly effective, because if you maintain a certain mindset of confidence/dominance/positive energy, those mindsets eventually just become a part of you

So focus on your body language, get your fundamentals down, and build a strong foundation. Sprezzatura is key here - the relaxed-looking and effortless man is the powerful-looking one.


Fashion

If you want to be a presence you have to dress well. Period. Your body language and your sense of style are the first two things that people will notice basically 100% of the time. And presence is about standing out, so learn how to use your fashion help you stand out.

Don’t go overboard with this, but just get a few cool accessories or one interesting main item that people will take note of. The key to top notch fashion is subtlety.

Also, it’s important that you dress appropriately for the occasion. If you go to a hoedown dressed in a three-piece suit you’ll definitely stand out, and you may even get a compliment or two, but you’ll also stick out in a negative way (people wondering what was he thinking?).

The second key to standing out with your fashion is being unique within the parameters of the event you are attending. You can mirror people with emotions/body language, and you can also mirror them in attire as well; which is a part of social grace that’s often overlooked.


Taking Up Space

You don’t have to be a hulk to have presence, but it is just a simple fact that people who are more physically imposing have an easier time with a powerful presence. They just take up more space. And if they take advantage of this fact, it can create a magnetic energy.

presence

But if you’re a thinner guy (like me), just try to be as physically open as possible when you interact with people. Walk with your chest out, make large gestures, spread your arms out when you sit down. If you can master how to take up space, you will have mastered an important component in having presence.


Make an Entrance

As I’ve mentioned, presence is all about first impressions. And nothing sets a good first impression like making an entrance. And no, I don’t mean busting through a door and yelling “I’m Here!” with doves flying out behind you.

But I do mean if you walk into a social situation, take a minute to see the room.

  1. Walk in

  2. Stop at the doorway

  3. Look up and to your left

  4. Slowly rotate your head to the right

  5. Look straight ahead and smile as if you’ve just learned a secret about everyone there

  6. Start socializing

Women will always take notice of this. Men… sometimes, sometimes not. But women are too socially attuned and will start to wonder who this man who just made a powerful entrance is.


presence

When I was in my first year of college I met a few guys who, like myself, were really into freestyle rapping. We were all okay at it at the time, but we’d meet up in one of the same three places almost every day and rap about anything and everything from politics to sports to potato chips. Not only were these guys talented, they were also really smart, so they could make complex connections that most people couldn’t.

After about 7 months or so of doing this, we all got good. Really good. We had an official crew going, and whenever any of us had any number of guests over to our rooms for drinks, we would call up the other ones. When everyone was present and accounted for, we would have every person in the room tell us three things about themselves that they thought we should know. After collecting facts, without any hesitation, we would all start rapping about the people in the room, and weaving in the facts or topics that they gave us.

The smiles that people had on their faces were almost indescribable. It was always a mixture of pure happiness and sheer awe. Then after delivering a few verses, we would deep dive them and make a legitimate connection. It was a deadly combination. And it was a trend that quickly caught on. People from all over the campus would come visit us, they would buy us alcohol, invite us to their parties, and would often do all this regardless of whether or not we actually rapped for them.

But besides increasing our social clout, this ability did something else for us. This was something that it took me years to fully realize and understand. We were able to add significant value to every situation we found ourselves in – if we so chose. We could single someone out at a party, stop them on the street, catch them after class, and completely make their day if we wanted to.

This ability allowed me to eliminate all social anxiety (which was never big a problem anyway) that I could’ve possibly had. I walked into rooms with a different air about me, because I knew I could validate anyone.

But I was also aware that this single ability wouldn’t be enough. My social skills were good, but I wanted to be able to bond with anyone in situations where I couldn’t just break out in verse. My dancing abilities were pretty good, but I wanted to be able to sweep girls off their feet with multiple styles of dance.

So after spending a couple years honing these abilities (and a couple other ones to a lesser extent), I came to the realization that people who possess powerful presence know that they can add significant value to any situation they find themselves in. Not just a little value. Not just some value. Significant value.

A famous actor will leave people in awe just because he is physically there in a place (instead of on a screen). An amazing singer can move and inspire people with her voice. So learning or a perfecting a unique ability can be a great way to add substantial value to any situation.

But honestly, if you’re not famous, the most important ability you can possess is social grace that is honed to a tee. Abilities aren’t always reliable because you can’t use them in every situation. But social grace is good for all occasions.

However, I should add that you need to be at the top tier of social grace. It’s very easy to add significant value through something like singing or playing an instrument well. But social skills are something that everyone has engaged in their entire lives. So if you want to add significant value to social situations, read up on the material on this site, team – and practice as often as you can. That’ll get you ahead of the game.


What About Confidence?

If you haven’t read the post on confidence not equaling success, I suggest you read it now. If you ask the average person about how to develop presence or charisma, they’ll you ‘be confident, be confident!’ They mean well with this advice, they really do. But, confidence has to be based on something. And if you haven’t done any of the things that I’ve talked about up until this point, be confident will be useless advice to you.

But if you do the things I’ve outlined, confidence will come as a natural result. Confidence is just another way of saying “been there, done that, and did it well.” So getting experience and processes under your belt will put you in the right mental state to have a magnetic presence.


Are You a Presence?

Maybe not yet. But now you have the tools to make it happen. It will take a long time; presence takes years to develop, and even then, some guys never learn it or barely have it.

But stick with it, and heads will be turning in awe at every place you find yourself in.

Here’s an overview of what we’ve gone over:

  • Presence is all about first impressions

  • The one thing that will make or break your ability to learn it is having insider social knowledge

  • Body language is the most important fundamental aspect of presence

  • This is followed by fashion, taking up space and learning how to make an entrance

  • The final component of presence is adding significant social value to every situation

  • Don’t focus on confidence; it’s a byproduct of success

Now go forth, and make the Earth tremble with your very being.

Carpe diem,

Colt

Presence Around Women


Lets just say a guy with a lot of value tries to hook up with a girl who is inexperienced in relationships, and doesnt have as much value as the guy. Would his presence make her uncomfortable and think he is out of her league? Would it be good to get on the same level with that girl and build rapport?

Pablo's picture

RE: Presence Around Women


Sup Anon,

If a guy has a lot of value and the girl doesn't have as much value as the guy, his attainability is low, having a low attainability can make a girl go cold on you because she might be angry that she can't get you or think you are out of her league.

His presence indeed could make her uncomfortable and make her think he is out of her league. How you solve this problem: Up your attainability. You can do this by screening her (like ask her if she cooks and if she says yes, say you love women who cook) and making sure she knows you like her. You can do this by just saying it to her or give her extra attention non verbally (looking deep into her eyes, touching her, lean in a little more if you talk to her and so on.) Check out Chase's book How to make girls chase, It has a chapter on tips and techniques how to up/lower your attainability.

Getting on the same level with a girl is always a good thing to do because that will make her feel like she can relate to you and that you or on the same page. But you don't need to lower your value if you're not extremely good with women (yet). The best thing to do is just up your attainability (making sure she knows that she maybe has a shot with you). Just be carefull that you aren't TOO attainable, stay a challenge and find balance in attainability.

Hope I helped and good luck.

High Value

Author

Anon,

Pablo definitely brings up some good points. And it's not that the girl wants to be angry, but she feels like she's *not good enough* for you if you present yourself as a man with significantly more value than her. No one wants to be around someone who is significantly better than them in every way, *unless* that person is very relatable.

Essentially, women are very good at being mirrors. So the more down-to-earth and relatable you are, the easy she will find it to mirror you, and the more powerful of a connection the two of you will have.

So pay attention to your attainability, and try to focus on inspiring *her*. Don't say too much about yourself when not necessary, and deep dive her to find out what makes her tick, what her dreams are, and how she can see you as a person who will bring her to learn things about herself that she doesn't share with people for fear of being judged.

Having too much value is a good problem to have, and if you just shift the focus to the other person and relating to them so they can relate to you, you'll be just fine. Read these two articles for further reference:

TED video


The TED video was interesting. A few thoughts/questions....

1) Is there any sort of diminishing effect? For example, in the article it mentions how people become less in awe of your presence with more exposure. Does repeatedly exposing your body/mind to these postures in situations that don't fit their natural uses, at all diminish the response - particularly if you have failures when using these strategies? Or is it pretty much always the same response?

2) aside from his size and tattoos, why does the posture of the tattooed guy in the photo look so dominant, If he's technically in a very closed posture? Seems a fairly good example of what not to do, yet looks powerful.

3) While it's generally not advised on the site to buy women drinks, for newbs, would there be an advantage to buy lots of women drinks and use these postures so that you get more experience/confidence around women, get preselection of being seen with women, and stand ou?. Basically, if used strategically, could it actually be a short track to developing certain skills/fundamentals (granted that unless you're filthy rich, you eventually need to learn how to not rely on buying the drinks)?

John W.'s picture

In response to question 2,


In response to question 2, the big guy's arms are not technically in a "closed off to the world" and protective posture. He's more engaged in a deliberate and contemplative thinking posture, as the resting of his chin on his fingers imply. It's the classic "Thinker's Pose". What makes the photograph so intriguing is that at first blush everyone assumes he is a hooligan (OMG, just look at the tattoos), MMA fighter, or just a "dumb jock". His deep, penetrative eyes betray what we draw from intuition in the blink of an eye: There is more to this picture. The Thinker's Pose cause the gears in our mind to turn. What is he thinking? Is he thinking about how his fundamentals are? Is he thinking about how to improve it? Is he thinking about how much presence he projects to the world?

The use of the black space to the right of the man is something I would generally recommend against in a composition, unless there is some other feature, such as a big wooden post or shape similar in size to our man, acting as a surrogate human. Otherwise, it is just a poor use of space. After all, when we look at a photograph we have to ask, "Why did the photographer take this picture? What is he trying to say?"

Of course, in the context of this article about presence, it is a VERY good use of space. First, we are already primed into thinking about presence and how one would go about in taking up space. In our minds, we fill in the black with, perhaps a room full of people whose attention has been drawn to this man, wondering who he is and what he does. Why did he command my attention? We cannot help but wonder.

Questions

Author

Limp,

1) In terms of the diminishing effect, your body will respond *exactly* the same way every time. Even if you have a "failure" in a social situation, it will be significantly better than if you had gone in with closed off and awkward body language. What I meant by diminishing effect is on other people. For example, if you had a strong presence and walked into a room I was sitting in with a bunch of people, everyone would kind of go, "wow, I don't know that is, but he seems intriguing." But, if you and I chilled every day for the next 2 years and you walked into a same situation (with everyone being a stranger but me), I would just think, "It's Limp! What a great guy!" But I wouldn't really be affected by your presence anymore because I had known you for two years. But everyone else would once again think "Oh...who is that??" So that's why presence is particularly important and useful in the beginning stages of getting to know people.

2) John hit this one very well. His body language is deceptively inviting.

3) Well, if you had the money to throw around buying everyone drinks, that's certainly a way to get women's attention and have them start gravitating toward you. However, that being said, having a lot of money is a not a replacement or a shortcut for fundamentals. That's why you see so many rich guys at clubs who think that their money will buy them women. They get a table, get bottle service, maybe invite a girl or two over and serve them drinks, then after the girls have had their fill, the guys are left there alone...only to wonder what happened. So unless you have solid fundamentals *and* money, throwing money around is not very useful. Also, in my opinion, oftentimes throwing money around sends the wrong message. It usually attracts the girls who want you to provide for them and either see you as a friend-zone provider, or a potential serious boyfriend/husband because your money combined with your generosity simply make you far too valuable.

Instead, focus on being the life of the party. Focus on being the guy that everyone goes to to improve their night. If you learn how to be that guy, you will hardly need to spend a dime and will have a much easier time taking lovers.

Presence


I think one of the most important aspects of presence is actually being present, as in aware of the present moment. Other people can always tell if you are spaced out, lost in thought, or in your head thinking of something to say. Laser-like focus, on the other hand, tends to be charismatic.

There is also a book on this topic that I found to be pretty good: The Charisma Myth, by Olivia Fox Cabane.

Present Moment

Author

Anon,

I agree, being in the present moment is definitely important. People definitely pick up on others who have other (usually negative) thoughts on their mind. But I don't think you should be so present that you get caught up in the fray like everyone else. Just like in Chase's post on seeing the room, an important part of presence is actually the ability to step back and put yourself above the situation and observe it at times. That's why you start off by simply looking around and above when you walk into a social gathering. That way, you're still paying close attention, but everyone looks at you and wonders "what does this guy know that I don't?"

You are calm, fully aware, and still have that laser focus that you aptly mentioned.

And I've heard of that book, but I've never read it. I'll have to check it out -- thanks for the tip.

Cheers,

Moment of Alienation


I experience that, and sometimes i still do. But i realize you attract who you are. I notice quality people with quality people.

Any ways to actually soothen this period?

Zac

Colt Williams's picture

Alienation

Author

Zac,

You are right, you really do attract who you are. I think one of the best ways to ease that period is just to focus on what you are gaining. It can be liberating to remove toxic people from your life and just direct your attention towards the high-value people that you are now surrounded with. It's also important to remain cordial with people you feel alienated from. It's actually a great way to practice being relatable. If you can learn to still take interest in people that you don't immediately click with, then you will strengthen your sense of empathy. And I think it's just important to be kind to everyone because you never know who you will need. So if you just try to think "I don't have much in common with this person, but they are still a good person" then you won't end up alienating them, which is important.

But, the most important thing is how you allocate your time. If you focus on using your free time to connect with people who understand you and boost you up, then you won't have to deal with the feelings too much during the alienation period too often.

Cheers,

Colt

Basics of this


Hey Colt, quite the interesting article you've written, and when I feel comfortable I actually have a presence. From about middle school to my senior year of high school, I played chess, and much like yourself with debating, I could read my opponents and would adjust my mindset to play to their skill level. My junior and senior year I went undefeated because I could intuitively read my opponents skill level. Also, I have a presence in the psychology circle. I recently met my first psych professor for college and I walked into the room, and she knew I was part of that world (I was a bit excited when she said that). I have a few things to work on, but I have a good basis. Great article Colt! ;)

Why look up?


Why do you look up and to the left? And how far up/to the left do you look? I don't quite understand why one would need to do this.

Colt Williams's picture

Looking up

Author

Anon,

The eyes are one of the first social cues that people look for. If you look down when you enter a room, then it's a sign of awkwardness and submission. If you look straight at people right when you walk in, it can be very challenging. It creates the feeling of you sizing them up or judging them, which can be off-putting. But looking up creates the feeling that you're "above" the situation. It creates a celebrity effect. It creates intrigue. That's how you generate presence. You don't have to crank your neck to ceiling. you just look slightly above the crowd, as if you're taking in your surroundings (which you should be anyway) and getting ready to dominate the room. Then you smile because you're completely comfortable. You've looked up, so people subconsciously notice that you're not immediately trying to please anyone, you're a man who takes his time to observe, and you're an insider. And you smile, which makes you approachable and a source of positive energy. And then you take over.

Best,

Colt

How do you know?


Hey Colt,

How do you know if you have presence? I had a friend tell me years ago 'I wish I was intimidating like you'.

I'd say I probably do intimidate some people, is that the same thing?

If you've always had it, how would you know?

Nathan

Intimidation vs. Presence

Author

Nathan,

I used to get the same thing all of the time. People would always say, "I was really intimidated by you when we I first saw you." Which was strange because I've always been a pretty thin guy. But I used to always walk around with a really serious expression on my face because I usually thinking hard about something or listening to hard rap. I've heard a lot people say "so-and-so has an intimidating presence." That's the sort of thing you want on the football field or in a fight. But you don't want that in social situations.

Basically, intimidating people make others uncomfortable or scared. They think, "I don't want this guy to hurt me" and it sometimes makes it harder for them to interact with you. Whereas people with presence make people wonder about them. They think, "this guy just has this energy... I want to know more about him." And it makes them gravitate toward you.

It's pretty easy to translate intimidating presence to positive presence. Just focus on having relaxed and happy facial expressions (especially when you're just walking/standing around). And focus on being slightly more energetic/positive when you interact with people, and really be interested in how they are doing. That will put them at ease and have them see you as less intimidating and just more of a powerful force.

And learning this ability is great, because you can learn to switch back and forth. Walk into a room full of cute girls? Positive presence. Some guy comes up to you and your girl when you're trying to take her home? Turn on the intimidating presence and watch him slink away. It's really quite interesting once you learn how to master both. It really comes from your facial expressions, body and your internal thoughts. If you think "this is going to be a great time, and I'm gonna infuse this situation with my energy" and you smile and relax, you will be effervescent and intriguing. If you think "this guy needs to leave" and you scowl a bit and tense up, then you will be terrifying. Use these wisely!

Cheers,

Colt

Too positive


So Colt,I have a question. Usually when I walk around, I have a naturally emotionless facial build, but emotions show up perfectly in my eyes. That being said, when you walk around and albeit sometimes I walk around with a big smile, full of energy, and happy, how do people see that? Or interpret that exuding happiness? I've heard mixed opinion some good and some bad. Then, in my usual walking state, I have a slow walk, and no smile on my face, but I feel the happiness in my eyes, and know that positive vibes are flowing out of my eyes, but not showing up in a smile form, how is that perceived?

Serious face


You answered this question perfectly. I will definitely work on my presence. However, I have one more problem in regards to my presence. Everywhere I go, people automatically assume I am this innocent look guy who cannot hurt a fly. I don't know what they mean when they say I'm innocent, but I know its not a good thing as far as women go and it doesn't intimidate other men so everybody wants to push my buttons.

I am not innocent, in fact I went through plenty of ups and downs, I am even homeless at the moment, though I don't show it or let anyone know. So how can I make a more serious face that says f**k off or I'll kill you!
