Red Pill TheoryHow you shit test yourself and how to pass them (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

Women shit test. We know this by this point.

We also know why women Shit test. We know they test you for weakness, to see if you can hold your frame. To see if you'll buckle under pressure and give away your power.

We also know that shit testing isn't bad. Once you pass a shit test, you gain respect, confidence and her attraction. If you do not pass shit test, you lose these things.

So it's pretty obvious that a woman's shit tests are important, but you know what is even more important?

Your self inflicted shit tests

What is a self shit test?

You can think of a self shit test as doubt. Doubting you're confident enough to talk to that girl. Doubting your abilities to accomplish your goals. Doubting your strength and frame as a man. Doubting your level of attraction.

Doubt is the ultimate shit test that you must learn to pass. This is one of the biggest things that stops people from achieving their goals and becoming the best version of themselves (aka, an alpha).

I'll give you example of a thought process and shit test I had at a party a few days ago (while I was tripping lsd, don't do drugs kids)

I was at a party a few days ago, having a pretty good time. The party was going well. However, a few hours into the party my frame fell apart and I doubted my own smv as random insecurity flooded my system and told me I was not of high value.

This lasted literally seconds as I decided I was Shit testing myself and I needed to pass this test. I brought myself back into my frame and continued teasing, flirting and remaining one of the most alpha at this party. I ended the night with a girl that blew my mind. I also noticed one of my friends who started the night in an excellent mindset had lost his frame during the course of the party and ended up having a less than stellar time.

The important take away, I could have let my frame slip and left it at that. But no, I decided failing my own shit test would not make me happy and respect myself. Pulling out of that mindset allowed me to buff my confidence, a lot.

The point is, learn to recognize when you are shit testing yourself. If you can pass your own shit test, you can pass ANY shit test.

edit Changed up the wording of the example to make it more impactful

Tell me I can't and I'll show you I can

Irrational self-confidence, a trait shared by all masculine men.

The voice in your head is the greatest enemy you'll ever face. He knows everything about you; your weaknesses, your fears, your desires, he can rationalize you into and out of everything.

The only way to overpower the voice inside is through action, it's through finding comfort in the discomfort.

Soon, you'll develop a sense of self which silences the critic in the stands, leaving you there to perform in the arena of life.

Damn this sub has a lot of ridiculous and corny shit sometimes posted but this comment right here is one of the smartest things I've read EVER not just on this sub, Reddit, etc.

Irrational confidence is what almost every top athlete has. The voice in your head comment is one of the best descriptions I've ever read. A man who can conquer himself can conquer anything!

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (4 children)

And your book has helped me realize that I can find comfort in the discomfort.

[–]RoeJoganCodpast 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is this a joke or is there really a book?

[–]i_am_sam_gold 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Look into watching the movie "Revolver". It's entire plot is based around this, defeating the TRUE enemy, your Ego. The ego can be a powerful tool once you know when to use it and when to shut it down. Playing "bitch" can be tuff to do for a RP but can be vital for obtaining what you seek.

[–]Huskimbo9 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Stop it sir, you are making too much sense.

[–]rafaelrafalex 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn, this is the best comment I've ever read

[–]Cesare_MA points points [recovered]

Beautiful man. I never consciously realised it, but I have been getting "irrationally cocky" since I got on this sub and started seeing results in my life.

[–]socialadder 15 points16 points  (4 children)

"Shit tests" are just another word for mind games.

Which women hate ironically.

[–]MRPFuckMe1 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Bullshit they hate mind games

[–]socialadder 6 points7 points  (1 child)

They don't hate playing them, they hate people who play mind games on them.

[–]onacloverifalive 4 points5 points  (0 children)

they hate people who play mind games worse than they do.

[–]Shaman6624 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No it's not. A shit test is a test. A test is not a game. It's a test people employ to see how strong someones frame is and if he's for real.

[–]Downvotesohoy 26 points27 points  (2 children)

I brought myself back into my frame and continued teasing, flirting and remaining one of the most alpha at this party.

This is why people make fun of this subreddit.

[–]SovereignSoul76 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lol, sounds like Kenny Powers.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (14 children)

You say lsd doesn't mesh well with your self image? I believe that with all substances, especially psychedelics, they simply Peel back layers of the mind to reveal your true self, to yourself, if that makes sense. They are amoral and only take on the meaning we give to them through our experience. If you lack confidence when you look at your reflection, it is because your expectations for yourself are currently set higher than what you've achieved at this point. The doubt you mention is your subconscious motivating you to do what you know you have to do. Or, at least what you've convinced yourself subconsciously you have to do on a foundational level to survive in this world. Defeating these self shit tests takes action. Self motivating them away is only masking the symptom of suffering generated by your unconcious. Action followed by achievement put them to rest entirely allowing you to live in peace. Or, until you load up another expectation/goal/value etc.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You can view it that way, that's fine. Personally, I've tripped on several different substances and each have made me feel differently. 4-aco-dmt for instance gives me a completely different mental effects and makes me feel nearly invulnerable. Nice after glow too.

[–]SilverGryphon 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I believe that with all substances, especially psychedelics, they simply Peel back layers of the mind to reveal your true self, to yourself, if that makes sense.

LSD in particular should be dealt with extreme caution. If you are depressed when taking it, prepare yourself for the possibility of having the worst trip of your life. The damage done might be irreparable. Take it when you are already chilled/relaxed/calm and you are likely to get very amazing trips.

[–]Shaman6624 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They not only show your true self they also warp it. Heavy psychedelics have the most long term personality changing effects. Neuroplasticity.

LSD revealed i am a cowbot

[–]otistoole 4 points5 points  (1 child)

LSD made me a right wing extremist.

To be specific, it was actually psilocybin and alpha-methyl-tryptamine.

[–]Sh0stakovich 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I'm eager to use psychedelics. I've heard several reports of introverted or self concious people becoming more outgoing and confident after experimenting with LSD. Objectively, I know I've got a lot going for me (physically fit, STEM PhD candidate, musician), but I have a lot of self-doubt which I can't seem to overcome. My conversations are forced and stilted; I experience anxiety in social settings, and have so far been unable to achieve my red-pill goals (particularly regarding my personality). I think psychedelics may give me a much needed new perspective.

*Alcohol temporarily helps me overcome these inhibitions, so I do know that I have the potential to be talkative and funny.

[–]yuyevin points points [recovered]

Just be sure to do your research and be safe. Make sure your SETTING is comfortable.

[–]Sh0stakovich 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Thank you. Unfortunately I expect to be alone during the trip (I don't have any friends who are open-minded about this idea). I'm aware that this is not optimal. I'll do it at home, so the setting will be comfortable and familiar.

Would you consider describing your own experiences or observations for me?

[–]SovereignSoul76 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Check out Erowid. That site has loads of info and personal reports/experiences, on every drug you could ever imagine.

[–]abstractplebbit 9 points10 points  (7 children)

You know how they say "set and setting" are the two most important things for tripping on lsd?

Your frame is basically your set,

Or mindset, if you will.

I like your message, but worrying about the dynamics of a group of people while you're on lsd night not be the most productive thing to do to learn more about yourself.

This is where "setting" comes in. Tripping around other people isn't exactly what being around them is like when you're not on acid.

I believe lsd exposes your mind to every shit test buried within it but judging yourself by your ability to snap out of a shit test or loss of confidence purely by reaction prevents you from gaining a lot of information about yourself. It confirms what you already know. To understand these self inflicted shit tests it helps to reflect on what insecurities you had when they manifested and then ponder what the source of them was. Were they grounded in realistic facts you didn't like about yourself, or merely illusions? Understanding the root of this gives you the opportunity to truly solidify your frame by conquering your weaknesses

Amendment: What happens when you fail a shit test and downward spiral into a bad trip? It's always important to be responsible about your set and setting. Not only will you reduce the risks of mishaps but you will experience more deeply spiritual experiences

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

For a typical person who is inexperienced with tripping, yes your advice is good to take into consideration.

I have tripped many times and am able to control the direction of my trip, easily. It comes with experience. I also am the type of person who enjoys emotions that come with "bad trips" as well though. I have pushed very far into some serious trips that might cause someone to lose control very easily (I've seen myself become the devil in the mirror before) and I love experiencing it!

Tripping for the inexperienced should be taken more seriously, however and I don't condone trying to keep a bad trip present. There is always more to learn about yourself, but take it easy out there.

[–]aznredpill 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah this guys concerns can easily be assuaged worth a warning or disclaimer

[–]abstractplebbit 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I used to get seriously fucked up on 10 tabs at a time and always had great trips - except one day that got out of hand because I thought I was immune to bad trips. Ended up having an unimaginably bad trip (safely) I learned to respect the drug more after that. If you aren't careful something bad can and will happen at some point.

If you disrespect the drug it will disrespect you

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

10 tabs is some serious business. Did you experience ego death?

[–]abstractplebbit 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I experienced something worse than that. It was like complete ego dissociation marred by intense fear and thought loops and shit that just spiraled out of control.

I kind of experienced incomplete ego death - which I'm calling incomplete because the fear was so overwhelming that I didn't get the chance to learn or take away anything useful from it. I've had a real ego death on only five tabs before

My real experience with ego death was only temporarily frightening - I kind of recognized what was happening and just told myself to relax, be still, close my eyes and let go. It ran its proper course and it was probably the most intense spiritual experience I've had. I felt like a completely new person after it was over, and that feeling stuck with me for awhile

It resulted in a lot of RP changes in my life and this was before I found TrP

Ego death seems like something that is more likely to happen when you are alone, based on my own experience. I usually always tripped with friends who were on at least half as much as I was

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've never gone beyond 3 tabs and I plan on never experiencing ego death, but I'd say you handled that exactly as you should have. As far I as know, the more you fight it the worse it gets.

I'm glad you are able to handle yourself, that would be frightening for anyone!

[–]IkWhatUDidLastSummer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Great post. Overcoming doubt and fear is one of the most important things, it'll benefit you in every way. For example, when i thought lowly of my self i didnt want to run or workout because i was afraid what other people would think of me when i do that, if they are gonna criticize my technique what they think of me and all those terrible thoughts, that meant i avoided going to gym and running because of this - which ironically enough makes the situation even worse. So its an evil spiral. Stare the fear into the motherfucking eyes. Keep ur eyes in this static position when you're looking into fear. Pretend you're this huge majestic alpha lion not giving a fuck about anyone or anything. Dont put the female lions on a piedestal. Dont give a fuck about all the hyenas. Dont give the jackals a single thought of yours. A lion doesnt lose sleep over the opinion of sheep. And by that i'll leave with this:

"You got this lion, he’s the king of the jungle. Huge mane out to here. He’s laying down under a tree, in the middle of Africa, he’s so big, he’s so hot! He doesn’t wanna move. Now, the little lion cubs they start messin’ with him, bitin’ his tail, bitin’ his ears, he doesn’t do anything. The lioness, she starts messing with him, coming over making trouble, still nothing. Now the other animals, they notice this, and they start to move in. The jackals, hyenas, they’re barking at him, laughing at him. They nip his toes and eat the food that’s in his domain. They do this and they get closer and closer and bolder and bolder, till one day…that lion gets up and tears the shit outta everybody, runs like the wind, eats everything in his path, ’cause every once in a while, the lion has to show the jackals who he is."

Be that lion now. Now.

[–]Cozc 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I dont know why, but when i hear someone say i was "tripping lsd" or "tripping mushrooms" is irks me beyond comprehension. Which is a problem because i and most of my friends love to trip so i hear it all the time lol.

You were tripping ON or FROM insert substance

[–]letsdocrack points points [recovered]

I do this. Not all the time, but every once in a while I catch myself out at a bar or a party and I'm just kinda feeling "meh". I'll be not talking to people, or if I am talking, just to fill the silence.

I take myself out of the situation and challenge myself, "I bet you can't talk to x person" or "You probably don't have the confidence to dance" ect. That usually is enough to get the ball rolling, once I get over the initial slump I'm back in the groove.

Might not work for everyone, I know myself and that I'm competitive to a pretty extreme degree, so this is how I motivate myself.

[–]Huskimbo9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's ill bro, I'll try that next time I step out.

[–]omgwot 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Recently I started at a new job and a girl who had been there for a few months was eyeing me. One day out of nowhere she tells my name while I was walking by and asks me what I was doing. I was so taken aback I dropped the spaghetti hard AF. I wasn't ready at all. Was that a shit test?

Also, just as an FYI she's firey. She has a bombastic personality.

[–]BangkokPadang 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No that is not a shit test at all.

Shit tests are intentional jabs/questions/statements designed specifically to see if she can shake your frame and throw you off. It's to see how weak you are.

Thinking of doubt as a "self-shit-test" is an interesting way to think of it, for sure, but should not be confused with an "actual shit test" that a girl gives you.

Nothing about your situation was a shit test, neither her asking you what you are doing, nor your brain spaghetti moment.

[–]moistarmpit 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Don't you think lsd waa helping out breaking and regaining your frame?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It could have. I had never thought of doubting oneself as a Shit test before that trip, and that's why it is significant to me. Now that I am thinking of it in this way though, it is much easier (and more fun) to keep my frame when doubts occur. That's all I wanted to inspire in you!

[–]babyfister6969 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You have to pass the shit test randers.

[–]redrummilf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There is nothing to fear but fear itself

[–]AnonymousAndLovinIt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you explain how you shit tested yourself?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think your post could have spent more time discussing Why shit testing yourself is so beneficial. Definitely worth expanding on. Also, you could have delved deeper on ways to do it rather than plugging in a vague and all-too-common Field Report about how you pushed through some discomfort to bang some girl. (and the lsd. unless you don't fear LE, keep that shit to yourself random internet stranger.) But other than that, I honestly thought it was a good article.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey thanks man! I was at work so I didn't put as much effort as I wish I would have into this post but I'm happy. I'm glad you got something from it.

[–]madmattmen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

A recent break up brought me to TRP. Self shit tests may be the biggest revelation for me. People shit test you, ignore, or 1up. I shit test myself with doubt, I give in. What's the difference between me saying I'm not good enough and others saying the same? NOTHING. Either way someone is in the way of me doing what I want. Great post. Thank you

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A break up actually brought me here as well. A great relationship coach that helped me out a ton is Corey Wayne, you can find him on YouTube. He is full of accidental TRP knowledge.

Get back out there and good luck!

You pulled a girl while on LSD?

[–]yuyevin points points [recovered]

Not the hardest thing to do.

[–]Questionnaire7 0 points1 point  (1 child)


Maybe I should lower my doses then lmao!

[–]Cunt_Robber -1 points0 points  (11 children)

OP, your frame is going to dissolve when you take LSD. That's just about a given. You don't want to have to "fix your frame" during a trip. That defeats its purpose - ego death (depending on the dose) makes it near impossible to voluntarily control this.

This post is an example of the blind leading the blind. LSD is not a party drug. I have a huge issue with this. Very poor example. Like TRP, psychedelics are tools to help us see and understand the world differently. How you describe your use of the tools is like using a wrench to operate a screwdriver. ONE SHOULD NOT INTERFERE WITH THE OTHER.

There are no "self shit tests," there is doubt, insecurity, and lack of confidence. Cultivating the positives isn't something you just switch on. Giving others this idea will lead them down the wrong path. You should discuss how others can cultivate confidence, a strong frame, etc. but this is known (aka, the usual TRP advice).

[–]kaspell 1 point2 points  (10 children)

It can very much be a party drug sir.

[–]Cunt_Robber 0 points1 point  (9 children)

And when like, OP's friend, you don't feel like partying anymore what do you do? Pretend it's a shittest you have to pass? This beats the whole purpose of the trip. Why are you ingesting LSD in the first place? What's your intent? Same with TRP, why are you doing these things for self-improvement? You have goals, but why set them? It's usually for an intent. But don't tell me you take LSD to help augment your party experience or pull girls. Try MDMA or sass instead.

This is childish. The whole post and everyone commenting and approving. Scroll through the comments and tell me if you see any ECs. This is a great example of one those posts that misses the mark but all the misguided TRPers swallow it up like candy. Be critical and think for yourself.

I havent contributed to the main sub as I have nothing to say that has not yet been stated, so I want to be cautious about how much I criticize others. But this is just a bad post, and I'm very surprised at the traction it's gotten so I had to throw in my two cents. The lack of EC comments reaffirms my judgment. Have a good day.

[–]kaspell 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Your response feels like you have no idea what you're talking about, and I really don't have the mental energy to explain why your reality paradigm sounds boring and constrained.

If you meet five assholes every day, you probably didn't. - proverbs

[–]Cunt_Robber -1 points0 points  (7 children)

You comment to vaguely tell me I have no idea what Im talking about yet state you wont explain why. Is this what you want TRP to turn into? You better back up your claims and stop making excuses about how little mental energy you have. Prove me wrong, don't just assume a position of superiority to stroke your own ego. Do you not see this is not helpful or positive for the aims of this sub?

[–]kaspell 0 points1 point  (3 children)

On this topic no, I'm not gonna illustrate personally why what you said regarding the conversation at hand was kind of ignorant and broadcast either a lack, or a limited personal experience with the subject matter.

The thread is full of personal testimonials which illustrate a myriad list of different experiences regarding hallucinogens. if you need more, try google.

It wasn't my intention to make you feel inferior, simply trying to make you think about how you respond prior to actually broadcasting.

After rereading your post(s) I maintain my initial assertion. If you can't read your own shit and see where I was coming from you should probably just go back to being quiet

[–]Cunt_Robber 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Inferior? Watch the power play here, I have yet to call you anything. You assert im ignorant but you wont point out where my error is or help me correct it. Nor does your reply spark discussion, so that others who may share my perspective may read our conversation and see the error in their judgment. I stand by what I said because it is based on experience. This won't change unless you say something to back up your claim and make me see things differently. Don't withhold information, and dont refrain from helping out your fellow TRPers if you think theyre mistaken. You keep saying I'm wrong but providing no support for your judgment. I am encouraging you to explain why you think I'm ignorant but you keep evading. You say you dont have the mental energy for it yet you keep replying to my comments just to assert your superiority. 1. i'm curious what you find ignorant in my replies and 2. Im finding the quality of not only the OP's post but also your contributions very low and not helpful toward the aims of bettering myself nor getting more pussy. Why the hell are you commenting if its just to put others down?

[–]kaspell 0 points1 point  (1 child)

you're right. you win. have a nice trip.

[–]Cunt_Robber 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Theres nothing to win you idiot. I come here to learn, but your posts are unhelpful and so is this whole post. All you want to accomplish is to put me down and feel superior. All youve done is frustrate me, so thanks, Im pretty certain you got what you wanted.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You seem to be what you are complaining about.

[–]Cunt_Robber 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What? No... No, please don't disrupt my solipsism, I was doing so well!

[–]nitegod -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Jesus you have to be weak as fuck to care that much. Being outgoing and interesting is all you need to pass a 'shit test.' Quit making excuses, be a man, and just do your thing.

And stop thinking in terms of alpha and beta. Women don't think that way. Only guys that get rejected think that way.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I follow what I know and it works. I put this post up to inspire or help. Do your thing, I'll do mine.

[–]nitegod 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'm glad you have some confidence and you should do what you can to get ahead but when you talk about things like a shit test you're just making excuses for when you get turned down. Man up and realize sometimes some people just won't like you. It doesn't matter. Being rejected is just a step in gaining the courage to find what you want.

The less you care about what someone else thinks, the more you can figure out what actually matters to you.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

See, I understand your mindset but literally what this is, is a way to get yourself into the zone. It's just another method. Use it or not, it's up to you.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even from your post history you look like a troll. I think all of your comments indicate a basic lack of understanding of the core beliefs of the redpill. Read the sidebar once..or twice, before you start telling this guy awful cunty BP advice like, "Women don't think that way." Or, "Only guys that get rejected think that way." Sounds like you've just tried some piece of advice you got from skimming an article, failed, and now spew awful bluepill shit.
