Revisiting this concept because I see so many people totally fail to understand what the purpose of FITYMI is.
MRP is composed of basically two parts:
Red Pill Truth and Red Pill Strategy
The whole point of obligatory FITYMI is to experiment with these community agreed upon truths and strategies, then see what conclusions you personally come to. In the end you aren't suppose to just to believe everything here because some guy said so - Red Pill isn't a religion despite how so many guys act. This is your first step into developing FRAME.
And I know most of you aren't doing this because of the gem colored turds in askMRP. The same happens whenever you see some dunce in OYS arguing about "Well that wouldn't work for me" - these guys either want to know what strategies to use but have never done the work, or jerk off into their own mouths enough to think they don't need to try a strategy like "lift and bjj" because they think they're smart enough to see how dumb it is without doing it.
Here's an example:
Red Pill Truth: Texting is for Logistics Only
Turns out it's horse crap! Well, for me it is anyway. Most of you can't help but triple text your hopeful side piece then block her like that indian guy that keeps sliding in my DMs. (and that's why even though I don't agree with it for me, I still agree with it for the masses.)
Alternatively, over the last 3.5 years I've had a real come to Jesus moment regarding the value of Mayor Game, STFU and likeability. I watched my life significantly improve when I stopped being a sperg just because I wanted to be "authentic" to whatever unconscious cupcake hide deep inside.
I did this by experimenting with my own life and watching as my peers experimented with the same ideas. But like you will, I had hang ups. Little niggling feelings of insecurity that try to stop me from behaving in the new way - this is why you have to fake it. You are defying your sensibilities. The very same sensibilities that turned you into the you that you are now.
You are questioning the very core identity blocks that created the horrible statue of YOU. The whole point is to replace these block one at a time. You can't put too much pressure on your identity, or try to change everything all at once, otherwise it will cause you to break frame. (This is what is called going Rambo.) Your identity cannot handle the weight stress an instantaneous total transformation would cause.
We all understand the Thousand Foot Rope this also applies to you and yourself. You are both the first mate, and the captain. You don't trust yourself to lead (and you shouldn't honestly) but the map you now have is different, and it won't start feeling like you're actually being your own captain until you've done it for a while.
