Singapore – Many theories have been proposed in the past about how men can improve their social confidence. A new academic study shows that there is now a scientifically proven method to achieve this.
Men can actually train their confidence in talking to women. This new study uses David Tian Ph.D.’s dating skills video training and general conversation skills training as tutorials for the male participants in the research.
These findings are from the study, “Confidence is attractive and it can be trained: Examining male social confidence in initial, opposite-gender interactions”. The authors of the research are Norman P. Li, Jose C. Yong, Ming‐Hong Tsai, Mark H. C. Lai, Amy J. Y. Lim, and Joshua M. Ackerman. This manuscript was supported by an Academic Research Fund (AcRF) Tier 1 grant from the Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE).
The objective of the research as stated is to investigate “Whether men’s social confidence in an initial, opposite sex chatting context can be improved through a video tutorial and the extent to which being perceived as socially confident results in being seen as more romantically desirable and worthy of future contact.”
In the study, men who received the tutorial and those who didn’t were made to chat with women in a speed dating situation. According to the research, “Tutorial-trained men felt more confident going into the chats and they, as well as male targets selected for their confidence, were perceived by female chat partners to be higher in social confidence, status, and dominance.”
The researchers concluded that, “Social confidence is trainable and that other-perceived social confidence can impact the outcomes of social interactions.”
The group collaborated with David Tian Ph.D., an international top personal development coach and director of Aura Transformation. His coaching curriculum ranges from relationships, social skills, and masculinity, to self-development, self-esteem, happiness, and fulfillment.
