Knowing Your Social Status
Relative status is way, way easier to obtain than absolute status. For instance, if you frequently visit a restaurant, try and get to know everybody working there. Though nobody actually knows you outside the door, you can be a real celeb inside. Plan to become well-known at a few social events, rather than a stranger at many.
Male status is almost always demonstrated relative to other men. Recognise and find opportunities to display your status in a non-confrontational way e.g. teaching another man something or showing dominant body language.
