Spread the love

Breaking Bad has one of the best character transformations in TV history we watch Walter White go from a weak looking pushover to a powerful presence who commands respect a guy opens his story and gets shot and you think out of me I am the one who knocks while you definitely don’t want to be like Walton every way there are four habits you can learn from him to look and feel extremely confident in any situation you’re goddamn right and even though Breaking Bad is a scripted TV show all the psychology covered in today’s video will apply to your actual life the first thing Walt did to stop looking weak was learn to project confidence with his body language we see this for the first time when he stands up to a guy who’s bullying his disabled son I’ll mess you up man or you’ll have one shot you better make it good what are you waiting for your girlfriends you better go you better gods are against him he projects that he’s confident he’s going to win but be careful here this is an area where you don’t want to blindly copy Walt you won’t command Respect by starting fights or taunting people you’ll just seem like a jerk and you might get your ass kicked what you can learn from Walt is his eye contact during conflict Walt projects massive confidence because in high pressure situations he holds eye contact if you think that I am capable of doing this wall seems to have a pretty clear rule for eye contact during conflict don’t break first here’s an example stay out of my territory now there’s Nuance to this if you never break eye contact during conflict you risk creating more hostility in real life any of these situations could easily result in you getting badly hurt this is why most people make submissive eye contact often breaking to look down because they fear conflict Walt originally had submissive eye contact and you’ll notice it gives you a very different impression of who he is what’s she talking about Walt um if you want to diffuse tension without looking weak or creating more hostility hold eye contact for three to four seconds and then break to the side instead of down Beyond eye contact actor Brian Cranston has actually gone on record saying there was one small physical change he made to transform the impression you get of Walt he simply stood with his shoulders back and his chest out it seems like a small change but those little tweaks to eye contact and posture give you a much more powerful presence Beyond body language you can also command more respect by changing how you speak part of what makes Walt look nervous early on is when he speaks very quickly like here when he’s nervous he’ll get caught by his wife did you man Colin’s sick now listen uh that is just not going to work for me I’m not interested in that at all and I would appreciate it if you don’t call here anymore contrast that with these next two clips where Walt’s more confident he has a slow speaking Cadence and uses pauses between words to hold attention the pause is the moment when you’re not speaking and ironically that’s the moment that pulls people in specifically if you pause at the moment people most want to hear what you have to say in your position I would have done the same Jesse you asked me if I was in the math business or the money business neither I’m in the Empire business now speaking like this is much easier to do if you genuinely feel confident so how can you actually be more confident in situations that normally make you nervous and why is it believable to the audience that Walter White can go from a chemistry teacher with no confidence to someone who’s able to stay confident while he’s surrounded by gangsters ready to kill him when you start talking and tell me what you want fifty thousand dollars 35 for the pound of Matthew stole and another 15 from my partner’s pain and suffering if you haven’t watched the show Walt recently learned he has terminal cancer now that he knows he’s dying he feels he has nothing to be afraid of it might not seem like it but this is actually something we can all learn from hopefully in a safer healthier way than cooking meth because we’re all going to die eventually this is one of stoke philosophy’s most important teachings Memento Mori remember you will die this isn’t meant to depress you but to help you build stoic courage to live life fully if you remember your time on Earth is short it can free you to take the risk approach the beautiful person in the bar ask for the promotion quit the job you hate don’t be Reckless but live the life you want while you have the chance building still confidence can be as simple as setting a phone reminder each morning to meditate on Memento Mori for just a few minutes ask yourself how would you live differently if you knew you were going to die in five years what about one year what about one week you don’t have to start living like you’re going to die in a week but it can help you find the confidence to prioritize what’s important and stop putting off the life you really want to to live now while Memento Mori is the reason Walt can be so calm Under Pressure that mindset alone wouldn’t have helped him survive for long in the meth world and especially after his cancer goes into remission Walt definitely does not want to die you see this in season three his life is threatened and he does not stay calm I know I can make him understand please if I could talk to Gus I can convince him okay just let me please please please let me talk to him shut up shut up the context here is that Walt’s bosses have found a new meth cook now they don’t need Walt they’re going to kill him but watch how the power Dynamic shifts once Walt sends his partner Jesse to kill the new meth cook what the hell was that exactly you might want to hold off yeah why because your boss is gonna need me 63 53 Juan Tabo apartment six this highlights the real reason Walt was able to be Fearless for so much of Breaking Bad he’s Irreplaceable he makes the best meth and everyone knows it you all know exactly who I am say my name Eisenberg God damn right it’s Walt’s confidence and his Irreplaceable skill that give him power and respect in almost every situation and what Breaking Bad is a fictional show that Dynamic is very real if your employer or clients think you’re irreplaceable they’ll do anything to keep you this is true in a romantic partnership as well the frustrating part for many people is what actually makes someone Irreplaceable it often doesn’t seem fair the hardest worker doesn’t always get promoted and the nicest person doesn’t always get the most dates that’s because for most people getting what you want in life is actually a mix of two things your ability and your ability to make people like you and respect you that’s the power of Charisma when you have it the world suddenly opens up for you if that’s something you want you may like our program Charisma University it’s a

  1. Walt was a posturing phony, a slave to his ego, and would have done anything to save his own skin, no matter how shameful. He had no moral or ethical code. He was an emotional hot mess and regularly panicking and scrambling and bargaining and sometimes outright begging for mercy. Even in his “tough guy” moments, he was a mere caricature. You’d have to ignore the first 4 seasons of this show – and probably share some of his characteristics – not to see that. The show was amazing, but Walt, as a man, was pathetic. I had no respect for anything about him, other than his intelligence, which was something he didn’t even choose for himself.

  2. Why would you look twards walt for charismatic advice.

    If it isn't blatently obvious let me explain somthing.

    Walts only memory kf his dad is of a sick frail old man in bed and while this sounds insignificant its actually saying a lot.

    Vince stated jn a 2016 interview walt left Grey matter because when he found out grechen came from a rich family walt didn't want to be known as that one guy in the bloodline of wealth so he left Grey matter and told himself it was their fault.

    Walters wants to be seen as this man's man. If you compare how each charater acts walt very clearly tries to act cool when he is heisenberg he its all to feed thos low self esteem of himself.

    It's not even like the shows charaters find it charming. Skyler sees walt as a completely different person. Criminals may fear him but being feared isn't charismatic. So everyone around walt sees it in a negative way. People only respect him because it fits their goals or because they want to not end up like the 9 men in prison. Sure walt is respected but he is respected like a criminal not a person.

  3. "Memento mori" don't impact on me. When i die i die, i don't care how and in which position.
    When i felt me around death border i was wanted very badly to have childrens.

  4. Vždyť jsem pinďa co potřebuje motivaci 😀 buzna s HIV 😀

    Já přece nemůžu bejt za Alfu 😀

    To jsou ty mafiáni, co na mě posílají policajty 😀 😀 😀

    Jsi jenom nemocnej, ty klaune…

    Tváříš se jako vrah a myslíš, že jseš tvrdej…

    Si mimo…
