Energy Level

Quick Definition: The level of energy or vibe projected by a PUA when he enters a set.

Full Definition:

The level of energy a PUA needs to project depends on the set and on the venue. It is usually best to enter any set at a slightly higher energy level than the rest of the room to capture their interest. If the PUA’s energy level is too low, he may come across as boring or uninteresting. However, having too high of an energy level will make the PUA seem unnatural and needy. Thus, calibration is important.

Generally, night game requires a high level of energy to compete with all the distractions and noise of the typical night club, whereas day game requires a lower energy level to avoid overwhelming targets and being blown out.
