    Quick Definition: A psychological technique where simple questions designed to elicit a “yes” or positive response are asked in sequence with increasing commitment, which, in turn, gains increasing compliance from someone.

    Full Definition:

    Yes-ladders set a precedence for compliance, and they are a great way to gain more compliance than if the PUA just asked the real compliance test right off the bat.

    For example: “Are you spontaneous? Good. Are you an adventurous person? Have you ever done anything that was a little crazy? Have you ever made out with someone you just met? Wouldn’t you regret it if you didn’t?”


    Yes-ladders are great for testing a girl’s compliance thresholds and pushing them even further.
