I ran into YouTube ad that promised to teach me to understand people 100 percents by understanding what they do biologically. I haven’t had time to go through it, so I am not in a position to agree or disagree with it. But I will post it both for myself and for others. Whoever has time to watch it, any summary and your opinion is much appreciated. Here it goes:

Really? With your education, you believe in this kind of quackery?
You should have really known better how science works and in particular you should have known that anyone who offers to make you understand something "100%" is a charlatain, not a scientist.

It is another quasi-religious movement that promises hope to the hopeless -- a cult, in other words, nothing more.

The term for that is 'red pill'.

I'm going to say - stick with the scientists. Stick with people like David Buss, Geoffrey Miller, Diana Fleischman, Gad Saad, etc.

Otherwise it's probably David DeAngelo 2.0.
