“In large cities, people can escape the reputational consequences of treating others poorly, which contributes to the rise of some poor character traits” - Dr. David Buss

Today I’m interviewing one of the authors I quote the most, Dr. David Buss. Dr. Buss, wrote the book “Evolutionary Psychology.” Were talking about some of the taboo subjects that people get uncomfortable to talk about: How do you define “mate-worthiness?”

While the topic makes people uncomfortable, it is a very important one to get into. What are the factors of “mate-worthiness?” Can you affect them, to make yourself a better candidate? What do different people look for?

We’re getting into all of these questions and more, plus debuting “Tai’s Diary,” where I talk about my life at the moment, what I’m up to, and the thoughts on my mind right now. Enjoy!

Points to Keep In Mind

  • We have evolved a few different strategies toward mating, depending on our needs
  • People tend to select one specific mating strategy, depending on aspects about them such as religion, how they were raised, what is important to them, etc
  • When there is a surplus of women, the mating strategy tends to shift away from monogamy. When there is a surplus of men, the opposite is the case
  • A huge percentage of all violence is related to mating
  • The amount of choice in the world today is what makes decisions difficult
  • Most people have to make compromises in exactly everything you ideally want in a mate
  • The modern world has created situations that actually favor some psychopathic behavior, which could be some of the cause of the rise of it today
  • In large cities, people can escape the reputational consequences of treating others poorly, which contributes to the rise of some poor character traits
  • For a long-term relationship to work, you need to prioritize intelligence levels
  • You need to have good insight into your own mate-value, so that you know who and where you may need to compromise
  • Personal hygiene is one of the easiest ways to increase your own level of mate-worthiness
  • Don’t underestimate the value of going to the gym in order to achieve greater mate-worthiness
