Freeze Frame: Controlling The Conversation

Frame control is the sinew and gristle of inner game. The importance of owning the frame can’t be understated. It’s how the media gets you to believe their angle of the story, it’s how politicians demonize opponents and their constituents, it’s how academic shysters establish the bounds for acceptable debate, and it’s how experienced seducers communicate their higher status and unflappability to women.

A proper definition as it pertains to pickup should help clarify the concept:

A frame is a system of interpretation that an individual or group uses to understand a certain event/situation.

Frame is important in pickup, because it communicates the PUA’s mindset as well as the underlying psychology behind his words and actions. For example, Swinggcat advocates a “prizing” frame, whereby the PUA always assumes the girl is interested in him as the prize. In this frame, a chick can say, “I really like the tie”. The PUA can respond, “Thank you, slow down a little bit. At least buy me a drink before you hit on me like that.”

A funny example of re-framing is when Borat wears his famous swimsuit to the beach, and the reporter comments, “Borat, those trunks seem a little small for you”. Sasha Cohen pauses, and then promptly responds, “Ah… thank you!”. The reporter’s expression to contain a laugh thereafter was priceless.

[…]

“Framing”, [or frame control], in the context of media studies, sociology and psychology, refers to the social construction of a social phenomenon by mass media sources or specific political or social movements or organizations. It is an inevitable process of selective [ed: seductive!] influence over the individual’s perception.

In pickup, as with mass media, there are always certain levels of interpretation of a specific event that can be reframed based on frame control, and your emotions and conviction in your beliefs.

If you are not framing your conversations with women, you are leaving yourself vulnerable to hijacking by her hypergamous mating module. Power abhors a vacuum, and so does an undirected woman free to interpret anything you say in any way she sees fit. Framing a conversation in your favor is taking the initiative; failure to control or at least massage her perception of you exposes you to unfavorable reinterpretations of your attractiveness.

Maxim #45: Any conversation with a woman that is not explicitly framed by you to maximize your perceived status will lead to her forming a negative perception of your value over time.

I’ll give you an example from my own life. I was taking a girl back to my place, a new place I had just moved into. There were boxes and piles of junk everywhere. It looked like a bomb went off. I knew any girl would balk at the mess, and that if I was in any way defensive about it, our vibe would be killed.

When she walked through the door, her expression flashed a hint of disgust. In the living room, she hesitated to take off her coat.

“Is it always like this?”, she asked as she stepped backward a bit.

I wasted no breath explaining myself.

“The door’s right there, if you want to leave,” I said with an expressionless look, while holding out my hand in the direction of the door.

“No, no, I’m not giving you a hard time about it. I was just curious.”

We had sex later on top of a mattress doubling as a bookshelf.

It helped my frame that I was in a pensive mood when she came over. I was in no state of mind to impress a girl, and it showed. Had I explained that I had just moved in and was busy fixing the place up, or made apologies for the mess, she would have had mental room to reassess her attraction for me. Remember, girls don’t operate in a logical universe; they abide their emotions first and foremost. My calm, implicit dismissal of her negative frame and replacement with my own indifferent frame kept her attraction strong.

Here are some more examples of excellent pickup reframes. When girls ask me if I’m a player, I usually get the best responses from them by agreeing and amplifying (“oh yeah, the biggest, I hope you’re OK with harem duties”) or by accusing them of having a history falling for players, which has the benefit of oftentimes being true of girls who like to ask that question (“you’re one of those girls who has a thing for players, aren’t you?”).

    What if the girl is getting the vibe that you ‘re moving too fast and tries to “frame” the conversation as more casual? Would you reframe back to seductive, since that would reinforce the problem? O go along for awhile and reinforce the new frame? Is it just hopeless at that point?

        That means: The public has been warned continuously over spans of generations about media and politicians.

        If the public cannot grasp such an obvious lesson over a tremendous span of time, the public is generally incapable of grasping the intricacies of Game over a relatively shorter period.

        The Public IS incapable of Game, because the Public is the group being gamed by the media & politicians. Politicians & media run game – game is run on the public.

        That factor is what makes it possible for self-appointed mpua/puag Gamemeisters to rehash/recycle Game concepts publicized by Mystery twelve years ago.

        I might have made too many assumptions about you btw, but I know many girls who remind me of you. Virgins, seem kind of innocent and since they never had proper relationships or sex, they don’t know about real sex or how men really are… I was like that too, which is where this idea of “being violated by sex” came from, not you. Other girls I know also seem to think like that. Other things they think is stuff like “since vaginal sex gives no orgasms to the woman, it’s all about the man’s pleasure and not worth having, since I can masturbate and get orgasms on my own anyway”. So maybe you don’t think all that stuff. You wouldn’t be too naive after being here for so long. I guess what helped me get more knowledge was reading a bunch of sex-info books from my library, and some GirlsAskGuys type forums to see what men think, but not all of it is true and I had to piece all of it together and compare it. But I like “the Myth of Male Power” by Warren Farrell. Gave me a new view on men. Having a relationship also gave me some knowledge. This site is also good, but it creates desperation and anxiety in women, and that is a downside of it.
        Because of my own experiences, I thought it would be better to know men and sex a little to clear up your mind, before jumping into marriage, to avoid nasty surprises and all that. I’m not entirely sure it would help you specifically, but it did work for me.

  8. Effective frame control involves disrupting the fundamental assumptions (the “interpretation of events”) behind her comment and replacing these with your own. It needs to be done with conviction.

    …And while your comment clearly does the later, it doesn’t really replace her original assumptions (or wisecrack) at all about the mess being permanent. It frames her comment as a sort of bluff (which you call) but doesn’t negate the assumption behind it. Why not say something instead that actually replaces her frame and doesn’t just reject her for it.

    [Heartiste: There are many ways to reframe. One of them is to utterly destroy a competing frame by refusing to acquiesce to its tacit message. In this case, I am relaying an example that demonstrates the effectiveness of a reframe that doesn’t even directly address the underlying assumptions.

  9. I tend to apologize to new women for a possibly disorganized apartment as I’m unlocking the door.

    The fact that I can say I “tend” to do this makes me realize I’m not doing too badly with women, regardless of whether this is a mistake.

    But seriously,

    1. It sends the signal that I’m supposedly not a player who would expect a female guest, which could prevent LMR/ASD.

    2. It gives me an excuse to sometimes have the new woman stand outside the door while I quickly go in and hide the nightgown of another woman (who tends to hang this near the entrance as a claim flag for informing other women who might enter).

  13. Wow, timely. Have been searching for an article like this a lot for the past couple weeks because i’ve found it’s hard to pin down exactly what it means by “keeping your frame” (other than keeping your “cool” so to speak).

    Thanks for the resource. I tend to use a lot of agree and amplify to keep my frame. I think my biggest enemy to my frame actually isn’t other’s competing frames anymore, because i’ve gotten better at defusing shit tests and the like. The biggest enemy is myself, if I end up speaking long enough i’ll say something that breaks it (e.g. I might apologize for that messy apartment even if she didn’t say anything).

  15. The frame wrong can be dangerous in real life. The nuclear event at Three Mile Island was made much more serious by the operators deciding (erroneously) that the plant was in certain condition and responding with that wrong condition in mind.

    They ignored substantial evidence to the contrary and the consequence was a partial meltdown.

    What saved them was a new crew chief walking in a 8 am, looking over the situation and turning back on a specific pump that the night crew had decided was making matters worse – in theiir frame but not in reality.

    The lesson to learn is to not get too locked into a hasty diagnosis and always test your frame.

  21. The thought of worrying about frame becomes unpalatable once you reach a certain level of masculinity.

    For example… When you’ve got a great LTR and you have a few on the side, meeting new women isn’t really a big deal. If you lose one of your side pieces, another one tends to fall into line as you have extra free time. The fact that you don’t give a fuck about new gals you meet pretty much sets your frame perfectly. Always get more sex than you actually want.

    Or, if you have plenty of customers and you’re making good cash, meeting new clients isn’t a big concern. If you lose one, no big deal — you’ve been making enough extra cash to waltz through any minimal loss. Always make more money than you actually spend.

    The same is true with peers/colleagues — losing one over a difference of opinion is not a big deal.

    The issue with worrying about frame is the act of being concerned with it almost tends to clutter up how you act. Too much worry is easily read by women. When you actually don’t give a fuck about a new gal, a new client or a new friend, you truly have won the battle over frame presented.

    Make them work to have you in their lives. “What’s in it for me?”

  25. GAME YOUR WIFE.
    GAME YOUR GIRLFRIEND.

    It must be stressed that one of the most important aspects of game is to game your girlfriend/wife, and not lose your edge. It’s MORE important than gaming new pussy, b/c a LTR is growing stale, by definition.

    It is grossly overlooked BC ITS “NOT NEEDED”. This is why its more like insurance, you don’t even know if its working, b/c you’re already fucking her. This is just all for good measure.

    I have taken this to a new level. It is so counterintuitive, yet is pure gold. I am increasingly bold about talking about my past. I glorify past conquests. I made it damn clear that I can and will get laid again, if this ends. All in such a laid back, matter of fact manner. I engage with random women on the street, right in front of her face.

    This topic should be addressed more here. It really is the MAJORITY of game, b/c guys with game eventually settle into serial relationships, since they are able to drum up options. Eventually, pickup is more of a chore than enjoying your new slampiece(s) at home.

  26. Frame control is vital in work interviews as well. I realized the need to do this after bombing so many job interviews where they established the frame and made me jump through hoops like a trained poodle. Problem is they expect you to talk about yourself, and next thing you are a babbling fool looking like a complete braggart. To quote Ken Pederson in “Making it in High Tech Sales” : “he who reveals the most about himself loses”.

    As I improved my consultancy selling, I learned to take control of the interview and keep it on task, which was the services I could provide them, and not answering nonsense personality questions or “scenarios” idiocy cooked up by some HR BA in Psychology.

    Ya gotta be prepared to walk out if they press the “interview” shtick on you and are inflexible on the format. If that’s the case you’ve already lost. Protect your dignity and split. Not surprisingly, pulling the “rejection” routine on them often works just like with women. (Like a carpenter I once hired who said “Maybe you don’t need my services”. A real pro.)

    “13 Then they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Him in order to trap Him in a statement. 14 They came and said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are truthful and defer to no one ; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not? 15 “Shall we pay or shall we not pay ?” But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, “Why are you testing Me? Bring Me a denarius to look at.” 16 They brought one. And He said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this ?” And they said to Him, “Caesar’s.” 17 And Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they were amazed at Him.”

    Which is why I’m praying tonight for that cocksure attitude that gives birth to the reframe.

  30. Solid post.

    Frame Control has its benefits in and of itself:
    1) Leads you to be more self-perceptive
    2) Allows you to break the subconscious habit of seeking approval
    3) Bolsters your dominance.

    No frame is unrealistic. Just don’t be insecure about it. Rather, just assume your confidence.

    For most guys, successful frame control could be significantly improved if they would just…

    1. Avoid controversial and banal topics (e.g. politics, sports, etc.) and keep it fun and light

    No matter how passionately she believes in climate change or cheers for the Patriots, any lengthy discussion about public policy or sports or any other controversial or banal topic will sap the moisture from her tang like a high-efficiency tampon. Instead, keep the frame light and fun. This is easier to do if you don’t take the girl seriously – and you shouldn’t. BE DILIGENT! If a girl starts sabotaging the dialog by heading down some conversational or boring sniper’s alley, take the initiative and change the topic yourself. I once did this while gaming a German girl (7) at a wedding party. She began talking about something boring, so I cut her off with a rude “whatever” and immediately started talking about something fun. A flash of surprise betrayed her emotions; she was clearly taken aback by my abruptness. But the gambit helped. Had I let the frame devolve into some boring domain I wouldn’t have been balls deep 2 hours later

    2. Skillfully use sexual innuendo during the attraction phase

    Fear of sexual herassmeat suits and the desire to avoid the corporate HR queens have rendered millions of men unwilling and/or incapable or using effective sexual innuendo. Not only will girls who are worthy of your time appreciate your boldness, but it’s also a litmus test to see how receptive she is to your game. If she’s frigid or acts offended, no biggie, just eject at the next natural opportunity. I once used sexual innuendo to devastating affect on an American female coworker (6.5). During lunch I sent her a sexually ambiguous text. That text led to a dozen or so more texts that afternoon and culminated in post-work three-holing at my place a few blocks away. The best part is that this girl was the prototypical East Coast ballbuster who would be expected to run to the HR queens at the first sign of impropriety. I swear, the harder the front, the softer the armor.

        You go it. Not a list, but a timely anecdote.

        Today I literally bumped into a cute HR rep at work in the door way. She was entering the office as I was exiting.

        Her: I’m coming in.
        Me: I’m coming out…but I’ll be coming in later. (Emphasis on “coming in” by using a slight pause deepening my voice a couple notches).

        Result: Huge smile on her face and texted during the rest of the work day. Dinner/drink date the same night with lots of thigh rubbing, kiss close, and plans for a future date. She later confided in me that I was one of only two guys at work to have hit on her. Understandably, it makes sense not hit on HR types (their famous for the cuntery), but in another sense it does because they will be the most avoided and therefore receptive of daring male attention.

    heartiste’s original answer,

    “the door is right there if you want to leave”

    is better for several reasons:

    1. the original answer does not address the messiness topic — that is, it doesn’t jump into her frame.

    2. “the door is right there” calls her out on her aggression and completely smashes her frame with a stronger frame of “i don’t care if you leave or stay”.

    3. by snipping her thread and replacing it with his own thread, he has just dominated the interaction, and proven his social superiority — all the while being unreactive and indifferent (“expressionless look”).

    4. jumping into her frame by addressing the messy room — even to agree and amplify and “pretend” to boss her around — is WAY too reactive and it is transparently obvious that she has gotten to you and that you are on your heels and in a defensive mode — AND that you want her to stay because you are coming back in an hour.

    5. plus it is way too long. the person who talks more is the one who is investing more in the relationship, the one who is reacting more and working harder at keeping the interation going.

    6. over the top, fake asshole game would probably just make her roll her eyes and see you as a pretender, or actually offend her and make her get angry and leave. negging involves push pull, not just flat out insults.

    7. lovedrop has a theory, or at least an observation, that every girl he has fucked, at some point he has proven to her that he can walk away from her pussy. that is HUGE. girls love powerful men, and the greatest power you can have over a woman is the power to not need her. by saying “the door is right there”, he has not only cut off her frame, but proven to her that he wants her but does not need here. that is extremely attractive to women.

    8. in contrast, some long winded story about how she is going to clean your apt? not only is out of left field, it is try hard and is “fake” punishment, not real punishment. if she judges you, you gotta punish her for real — with the threat of withdrawing your attention and radiant energy. that is the only real punishment that chicks are afraid of, losing the attention of an alpha male.

    It seems to me like the problem is more that you’ll be judged poorly by her status-judging module. I still don’t exactly understand what your argument is for the evolutionary psychology of a hypergamous mating module.

    Of course, those girls were whores; but then, our resting state too is to have reduced relations into almost purely financial transactions. Can I get a llzolzzl?

  48. A lot of alpha frames often require acting strategically obtuse — “playing dumb” — in order to maintain enough plausible deniability about one’s intentionally excessive displays of cockiness. If a woman knows you possess some moderate amount of self-awareness/self-knowledge, then she’ll in many cases suspect that all of your confidence, whether crafted or authentic, might somehow have been carefully & artificially manufactured (and thus rather fragile). This is probably because genuine wisdom tends to foster humility, or at the very least a sense of it, in light of how relatively insignificant any single Man’s existence or knowledge is against a wide enough backdrop, a comparatively high ceiling, a maximally grand scale.

    There are definite, observable penalties for exhibiting too much intelligence and understanding around chicks. A man should never assume that DHVing via, say, IQ-flaunting can’t backfire, or that usually it’s just bound to outweigh its overall cost.

  50. Heartiste:

    I have a question that relates to frame control.

    One time recently, a girl I’d just met (at her work, got the digits, texted once or twice) texted me at random. As I was driving home and was curious, I stopped by (literally drive within 1,000 ft of where she works anyway) and asked her about it so I could feel her vibe (new to practicing game). She seemed cool, so I said I’d stop by tomorrow and plan something for the weekend (had to be done tomorrow because of logistics). That night, she texted me, saying she believed I had a dark secret. I’m thinking…”all right, shit test”. So I messed her around for an hour till I needed to go to bed. The next day, she actually asked me if I was a serial killer (among obvious shit tests). After that, she didn’t want to do anything. She told me that she’s “talking to someone”.

    My question is…where exactly did I loose the frame? My (admittedly inexperienced) sense tells me that I shouldn’t have gone to see her that one night she random texted me…but I’m also thinking that we’re supposed to provoke shit testing, and that visit certainly did AND put me front and center in her mind.

    My admission that I was actually an attic dwelling hunchback with a mysterious past did not seem to cut it as an appropriate response to the “dark past”. Your thoughts?

  51. Update for everyone…and kudos again to this place…

    About 6 weeks ago at a party I met reasonably hot 7.5 slim, fit Asian air hostess at a party.

    I gamed her, she gave me major IOI’s…I followed up, cocky funny, kino…set up drinks.

    She flaked 3 hours before claiming she wasn’t feeling well.

    My text, 5 minutes AFTER our previously arranged meet up:

    “Oh just got this. if we meet up again you’re buying”.

    She replied about saving up and meeting up.

    Then nothing.

    I sent trial text about halloween, nothing too big. She replied with some smarmy response, but not set up of another meet up.

    I blew it off.

    Then two nights ago, at a party I’m co-hosting she comes with her friends. I was with another woman. I also made a speech, spoke a foreign language, hung out with some artists and gave her a wink and a smile, but did not approach.

    Then I left without acknowledging her with the other woman.

    A day later, I get the following text:

    Her: “You left without saying good bye. thought it was quite rude. hope u had fun. xx”

    I haven’t replied. What if anything should I reply?

    The point here is as this blog suggests, if you maintain control and the frame, they will reply.

    How to convert this into some action is the next question…. Any acknowledgement is gonna be playing into her frame.

    Do I say: “Yah, great time last night.”

    But need something edgier and more sexual…

    Any thoughts?

    • Wait for another day and go with “meet me up day X at Y. How about 6pm?”

      No cocky funny, no smart ass witty response.
      She can either bring her flakey ass or go fuck herself.

    • I’ve tried the ‘you treat next time thing’ when girls have flaked on me and it has always resulted in the girl never getting back to me. I think it is totally fair after you have made an evening available, planned a date, and offered to pay for it and the woman flakes last minute to expect some effort on her part if she wants a second chance. The women, on the other hand, seem to take it as an insult or a door shut in their face and never seem to respond. It’s not bad to call a girl out for flaking, but I suggest in the future you try something else if you really want to line up a second date.

      As to what to do next with the girl it seems that you are not even sure that you want to go out with her. MY suggestion is that for now you work on building her attraction and then once she is really ready to go out with you decide if you want to go out with her. It will help you practice your game and leave you with more options down the road.

      What to text? Something along the lines of…

      “I had lots of fun that night. Of course, what night do I NOT have lots of fun?

      [Heartiste: “you treat next time” is too precious an answer to a flake. it’s putting a positive spin on woman’s bad behavior. a better answer is simply: “gay”.]

      • I didn’t bother responding at all. The fact she wrote that means hamster is spinning.

        I’ll see her again sometime anyway, but it gives me a bit of a DHV….the whole Chicks Dig Jerks…the fact she even noticed meant she was watching me throughout the nite and i was with another chick.

        Somewhere on this blog it’s been written that to be good at game, you can’t be outcome dependent….enjoy the ride…
