Necessary but not sufficient (the incels should know its meaning) There are plenty of incels who're trying to ascend (to escape the inceldom) and they know the formal meaning of the "necessary but not sufficient" but when it comes to its practical implementation many of them will fail because they think that a necessary condition (and/or action, change, etc.) or two and more necessary conditions guarantee them that the outcome (becoming enough attractive) will take place.
It was mentioned already in Just be x
thread. In this post (short article) I'll add more clarity about that important problem.
Examples from the incels' and noncels' lives There were those people who thought that just going to walk out for an hour or working out with a dumbbell will make them lean and muscular. They really believe it and when they realized that a walk and/or some exercises with a dumbbell is not making them leaner and/or more muscular they decided that they're doomed (because of their genetics or some another false reason) to be forever obese and weak. Of course, some of them (those with more will and higher IQ) decided to try harder, to add more efforts (like running, adding a second dumbbell, reducing the calorie intake...) and they got their better bodies (leaner and more muscular). Do you get it? At the beginning they started with something useful (more walking, simple exercises) which was a necessary condition but it wasn't enough. When those (with more will and knowledge) started to add the rest of these necessary conditions (right diets, more exercises) then the wished result was achieved!
There are those incels who want to ascend (to escape the inceldom; to find a loving partner) who're also trying to improve themselves. They are starting with some necessary actions like improving their fashion style (better clothes, shoes, etc.), hygiene, personality, hairstyle, socialization... all these are good actions (right actions) but, in most of the cases, they're not sufficient. I remember a person (an incel) who said somewhere that he improved his character (personality) and got a good respectful job but this didn't help him to get a girl-friend (I was surprised why he didn't think about his body too; I bet he dislikes women with unattractive bodies so he could guess that most of the women also do prefer men with good-looking bodies). What I mean is that: many incels who want to ascend do believe than just with some necessary conditions (fashionmaxx, personalitymaxx /like jestermaxx/, more showers, hairmaxx...) will ascend but they miss some other necessary (some of them sufficient
itselves) conditions (like improving their bodies
, i. e. gymmaxx
) which will bring the desired result. (For example, being with a good personality is a good and for some people -- necessary condition but it's not sufficient; to be attractive you have to add a better body, enough wealth... like this, you're having the sufficient conditions to be an attractive person).
How subjective are these necessary and sufficient conditions/actions/etc.
Maybe some of you will notice that there are conditions that can be sufficient itselves and that there are necessary conditions that aren't really necessary in some cases. This is because of the different tastes and ideals of the females. Even one and the same female may change her taste in different periods of time (for example long time ago she wanted a good-looking Chad but now she only needs a rich Norman or nearcel; or a year ago she wanted just an ordinary guy but now she wants to find a pop-star... or, long ago she wanted to have a husband but she is already a volcel). So, it depends. And it's subjective to some degree, but it's simple like this: for instance, woman A thinks that it's enough if you just have the money and the muscles (only moneymaxx and gymmaxx is enough for her); woman B thinks that you should be also with a good personality (according to her understanding of the personality) and for her just money plus muscles aren't enough; woman C thinks that you should have doctor's degree, good hygiene, romantic hearth and good income (for her the gymmaxx isn't a factor and she is okay with some chubby male as long as he's clever, clean, romantic and not poor)...
But this subjectiveness can't stop you to try your best and can't fool you to think that you can just maxx a little and everything is done. To have more chances you have to use as many as possible maxxes (improvements): more knowledge, more sport, more money, more arts, more care to others and to yourself and so on.
