• Compliance Test (CT)

    by AlphaWolf & Co.

    Quick Definition: When delivered by a woman, a compliance test is a small request or series of requests that a woman will make to shift the power dynamic of an interaction in her favor. When delivered by a PUA, a test to see the target’s current compliance level to him.

    *PUA Lingo does not endorse or support the use of these terms. We strive to describe them the best we can based on the seduction community’s uses for them in improving men’s (and some women’s) dating lives.


    Full Definition:

    A compliance test (CT) can be a form of shit test that women use, often subconsciously, to test the alpha characteristics of a man, and occasionally to take advantage of him. Compliance tests can be anything from a small favor to a large request, and often depend on how entitled a woman feels and how strong a woman gauges the man to be.

    AFCs often fall into the trap over-complying with any request that an attractive woman makes, for fear of losing the woman’s approval or attention. What these socially uncalibrated men do not realize is that this behavior is very needy and unattractive. By trying so hard to win a woman’s approval, they lose it. The only way to pass a compliance test is by not complying with it, or asking for a compliance from her in return.

    A PUA can use CTs to his advantage, often to gauge a woman’s interest in him. For example, Mystery’s knee compliance routine below shows the beginning of kino escalation compliance. Another form of a compliance test is to ask the woman to move to a new location at the bar with you, a form of logistical compliance.

    It is important to deliver compliance tests smoothly, as if they are not “tests,” but rather small hoops that the PUA smoothly transitions to. If a woman complies, the compliance threshold can be increased with each data point, and, if she declines or is unenthusiastic about it, the PUA can always IOD and try again when more demonstrations of value have been communicated from both sides.
