Watch your inbox tomorrow for the announcement of our BRAND NEW AMP 2.0 PROGRAM!!
What do you think of this matrix? Post which archetype you most identified with — I’m curious to see which will be most common.
this is amazing. I love this. you must have put so much thought into this. super brilliant.
Wow, I think I am the “Manipulative Calibrator”
I like it.
For recoverying pua’s haha.
Great stuff guys….kinda find myself being different archetypes in different situation with different woman?!?! Was one AT last thurs on one date while another AT the following night on a different date…guess that doesnt bode well for authenticity or does it?
I have to say you guys are so impressive. I work with both men and women, and I love that I can send men your way. There is so much integrity in your work. Thank you for being out there doing this work in the world. It is much appreciated. Lori
Wow, I’m going to be thinking about this for the rest of the week…and probably a lot longer! Very insightful stuff.
You guys certainly aren’t afraid to color outside the lines. I’m very grateful for that!
Brad (aka Dr. Kraig)
Awesome intro. Too much of it hits home! Great job. Looking forward to the next segments.
Interestingly, a little earlier this year, I put myself on a “no woman diet.” Surprisingly nutritious!
Damn you AMP!
I’m working through your Foundations DVD set, doing a lot of reflection on what’s happening in my life and I’ve come to the realization that I’m still a needy person in a lot of ways and still look for external validation in a lot of situations…
Almost on cue, you email me this matrix which spells out exactly my issues. Tomorrow your big announcement is probably going to be some sort of program around this. I’m a grad student for the love of God! I’m trying to study here and you keep putting out more good stuff.
(OK, send me the details…)
I exhibit a lot of the Gushy Nice Guy beliefs and motivations (not so much the behaviors), but as soon as I read the Aloof Avoider, I realized I do ALL of those things. Wow – lots to think about there.
Wow. This is really, really great. Props to you guys for putting this together. Looking forward to learning more about the new product.
I identify myself mostly with the “Aloof Avoider”.
Interesting thing is that I´m also most identified with
the Enneagram type: 4
I was also trying to figure out some of my friends Enneagram type before,
and by reading this matrix I could figure it out some of then.
Hmmm…..seems like a watered down (and inaccurate) version of the Enneagram…….Working with the Instincts from the Enneagram work is also very useful when looking at how men approach and relate to women….
***RESPONSE FROM BRYAN:
Yes, agreed that it’s probably inaccurate. Just our casual correlations based on the patterns we’ve seen with guys… I figured it would serve you even if it’s inaccurate, since you’ll be using your discernment to determine whether it’s inaccurate or not. Cheers… B
I can’t see the video. It started out very choppy then just stopped downloading. Tried it in Internet Explorer as well as Google Chrome and was unable to view. Even with the previous video player it seemed choppy. Perhaps you could add a download video link to the site for those of us with browser issues as well as give us an opportunity to download into our ipod for later viewing. It would be greatly appreciated!
This stuff is great and I think your bang on when you say it’s something that alot of guys struggle with BUT AREN’T EVEN AWARE OF. Very insightful. I m really looking forward to what you guys roll out next!
Keep up the awesome work!
It’s funny how as time goes on I’ve fallen into different archetypes.
I started off as a hands down Vampy Stalker. Now I’m a Creepy Controller.
In other words, my edge is STILL appreciation, but its just gone more covert these days. The lack of appreciation spreads like a drug through my life, too. I’ll work on a program for MORE hours a day than is healthy, and I’ll do it in order to grow and get over this hump as soon as possible.
I wound up having to go on a “No Program Diet.”
Here’s a quick question that it’d be cool to get addressed. I’ve noticed that my lack of appreciation can kill my presence because I get pulled up into my head thinking I should be somewhere in my life and getting frustrated by lack of progress. Neediness, which I always thought was black and white an appreciation piece, can kill presence, Interesting.
Crap. I’m the gushy nice guy in the flesh.
This realization took me completely by surprise, I am an “aloof avoider.” I thought I could handle emotions and sensations after all my martial arts training but now that i think about it I am always trying to avoid or lessen the sensations I feel around people.
As a longtime, though not particularly ardent, student of the Enneagram I instantly related to the archetypes. I’m a 9 so I didn’t have to read far to find myself in the “Withdraw/Avoid” category. The good news is that I’ve moved far toward the healthy qualities of the 9, especially in the last couple years. Yeah!…progress (its only taken me 60 years)… Great work guys, its useful to have this stuff so accessible.
What I cannot figure out is why women always say they want to find a nice guy but then they always seem to go for jerks. Does a guy have to be a rude jerk or a “bad boy” to pick up women these days?
This framework is highly reminiscent of approaches to human interaction taken by Transactional Analysis. Good!
Hmmmm…some context please 🙂 Did I just get sold on this AMP program by a Vampy Stalker and a Creepy controller 😀 I have to say that my interactions with women are largely guided by concern for what is happening for them…hence my relationships with women have been omnipresent, fun, exhilarating and platonic 😉 Doesn’t bother me too much because I’d rather go without anything physical (except hugs) than manipulate them in any way. Seeing a manipulator in action triggers me more than almost anything, and makes me feel very protective.
Having said that…I can see how presence and authenticity takes the old model and puts it through the shredder. Bye bye cookie cutter, hello appreciation. Decker and Brian – I’ve seen enough of this and experienced enough change in myself at this point to take full responsibility for my involvement in AMP. Thanks for rewiring my brain.
