When you move to a new environment, whether it's a new restaurant scene, club, job, city or country, you are essentially a particle submerged in a new solution. You will collide with other particles within that local environment. Certain collisions are head on and in the process the other particle becomes "charged" by your energy. This can happen in a good way or a bad way so it's important to understand this process. After you become submerged, time will elapse. You will make seemingly random connections, but most are actually reactions. Examples: 1) A waitress thinks you are cute (you created a positively charged particle in that restaurant environment). 2) You send a nasty email to a coworker (you created a negatively charged particle in your work environment). At some point, around the 3 month mark, something significant will occur within your environment. By then, everyone knows who you are, but most have not formed an opinion. Then the catalyst will occur: two particles that you have charged in the past will collide with oneanother. At this point, if one is positively charged and the other is negatively charged, they cancel out. This is where most of us are. One coworker said you did a good job. One said you made a mistake. No real opinion is formed. You are average. One waitress thought you were hot, one thought you were rude. They cancel out. You are average. But what if both particles had the same charge? A nuclear reaction will occur! When two people talk and they both agree about you, the charge will spread exponentially to everyone in that environment. Examples: A) Two waitresses both talk about you when you are not there. They both say how hot you are. You go viral in a good way (and end up laid 2 weeks later). B) Two coworkers talk and you have pissed them both off. You go viral in a bad way (and end up fired 2 weeks later). The reason things explode this way is due to the phenomenon known as gossip. Once two people agree (they have the same charge), the gossip will spread exponentially (everyone tells two other people). The moral of the story is, make sure you never create negatively charged particles (especially at work), and also try to cancel out the negative particles that already exist (by doing something positive). Finally, master the art of creating positively charged particles (seduction). This will help your popularity to explode in a good way.
