Stuff Frat People Like: Confidence

While there are many things out there that separate us as fraternal gentlemen from the unwashed GDI kin of the world, no one factor means more than confidence. Sure, there are a few GDIs out there who are fairly confident (though I don’t understand why) but nothing breeds self assurance quite like the Greek systems of old.

After a few years on campus, many Greeks tend to begin to walk around as if they own the place. To be fair, though, we practically do considering the stranglehold we have on student governments around the nation. The simple fact is that being Greek breeds an aura of assurance that is nearly impenetrable, benefiting its recipients for a lifetime.

It’s amazing how much you can accomplish simply by being confident in your actions. Through pledging and the early stages of brotherhood, we learn slowly but surely that we are, in fact, better than most other people, and we begin to carry this fact into our daily lives. Before you know it most brothers are walking into bars with their heads held high, greeting the bouncer by name while showing him a fake ID, and keeping a whiskey ginger in each hand and a 9 or better slam on each arm.

Several people, like myself, come into their college of choice with an unnaturally high confidence and simply learn to channel it better through the pledging process (ie getting your face rubbed into the dirt until you realize you aren’t God’s gift to the fraternity). While this channeling is great, it’s the more introverted kids’ transformations that really impress me. We all know a few brothers who started off pledging quiet and timid, but slowly grew into borderline arrogant beer chugging animals who exclusively bring home top-tier slams. It’s a beautiful thing.

Confidence is the one X-factor that is absolutely invaluable to any human being. It helps your job prospects. It helps you make friends. It even can get you some sweet sorostitute tail (quite often, actually). Confidence can take an incoming freshmen from chump to champ in just 10 short weeks of pledgeship (or longer if they fuck up). Confidence can be the difference between having your bed full every night, or renewing that Bangbros subscription every month for $29.95. While I don’t suggest you stop to admire yourself in the mirror every time you pass by, if you always keep a positive swagger to your actions people can’t help but notice. Just always remember to keep it classy and don’t belittle the lesser folk around. Half of the confidence battle is being poised enough to not have to talk shit about the insignificant. They aren’t worth the time of day, and trust me they realize their worthlessness without needing a reminder from us. To quote White Goodman: “We’re better than you, and we know it!”

    One of the 2 C’s I try to live by. Confidence and Concentration. Nothing can stop you when wielding these traits cooperatively.

      You guys do realize that Tosh isn’t actually gay, right? He does that for comedic purposes.

      Tosh is easily the best comedian on TV. And yeah he’s a Sigma Chi, thats why he makes fun of them all the time. Its like the gay thing, self defacing humor.

      One of my friends said that him being a Sigma Chi is part of the reason he does the gay humor thing (have nothing against them, just that for some reason people say they’re gay for whatever reason, and that prank call thing). That just makes it even more funny when he does it.

      I mastered the art of sexting back in eigth grade on a Razr. Around the 11th grade, I mastered the art of sperm projection: The physical act of aiming your semen as if to replicate a projectile. (10 points for the forehead, 12 for the cheeks, 15 for the nose, 20 per eye, and any in her mouth I liked to call extra credit.)

      12th grade I decided that that anal was the new cool, and at any point that she said “stick it in something else”, I pretty much celebrated a personal victory with a nice Acid Cigar (not the drug, don’t be a fuck) and a few shots of whatever my grandfather (God Bless the man for raising me) had in the cabinet.

      As I adapted to a more mature college sex life, I began a challenge with a few brothers we liked to call Sororority Crawl. The name pretty much says it all, but in laymans terms, the idea is to engage in intercourse with a girl from every sorority. I completed that card around Sophomore year, second semester, and celebrated with a little unprotected sex with an old highschool slampiece… for old times sake.

      Really kid, you just gotta throw yourself out there. Don’t be afraid to slap some ass when drunk, the ladies love to be dominated. Tell them your here for a good time and if they aren’t looking for the same, you can politely ask them to refer you to the sister that is.

      When you really get it down pack, play the Little/Big game. Go after the big, then the little. Trust the strategy.

      Brownie points if you get them both at the same time.

      ^ Cool story. I wish I had enough free time to tell my life story to people who don’t give a fuck.
