The 9 Art of Seduction Types - Wich One Are You?

Ever wondered what makes people fall for you? Or how you can make anyone swoon? It’s not just about good looks or witty chat-up lines; it’s an art – the art of seduction. And who better to guide us through this than bestselling author Robert Greene in his eye-opening book, The Art of Seduction

Greene lays out a map of nine art of seduction types – and yes, you’re one of them. He even throws in the curveball of the “anti-seducer” for good measure. For a better understanding, we will explore all seduction types and help you figure out which one you are, as well as which one your love interest might be. 

And to make sure this journey as smooth as possible, we’ve lined up concise Blinks (Blinkist book summaries) for each type. So you’ll be absorbing the essence of each seduction secret in just 15 minutes.

The 9 Seduction Types — Which One Are You?

1. The Siren

If your presence can spellbind an audience, you’re likely channeling the Siren seduction. This type of attraction is not just about looking pretty, it’s about having a mix of depth and intrigue that makes you want to keep coming back. 

Think of Cleopatra, who charmed not just with her beauty but with her captivating presence. Dive deeper into this archetype with Robert Greene’s The Art of Seduction on Blinkist, exploring how to harness your emotional intelligence and mysterious allure to leave a lasting impression.

2. The Rake

Are you always going Casanova style? If so, you might find a kindred spirit in the archetype of the Rake. This seduction type, reminiscent of the legendary Giacomo Casanova, radiates vivacious charm and a fearless spirit.

Neil Strauss’s seduction book The Game offers a modern-day exploration into the art of seduction, particularly in the context of the “pickup community”. While The Game delves into the strategies used by men to win over women, it also uncovers the complex and often challenging consequences of such pursuits.

3. The Ideal Lover

If you’re adept at creating deep, emotional connections, the Ideal Lover might be your seduction type. This style is less about grand gestures and more about understanding and responding to the needs of others. 

For a deeper understanding of this type, Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages on Blinkist is a perfect companion. It’s about making others feel seen and understood, turning every interaction into an opportunity to forge a meaningful bond.

4. The Dandy

Are you known for your unique style and independent spirit? You might be embodying the Dandy. This particular breed captivates with their distinctness and self-assurance, akin to the characters depicted in Oscar Wildes literary works. 

Embrace your inner Dandy and explore more on personal style and non-conformity with books like The Picture of Dorian Gray on Blinkist. Learn to stand out with your unique flair and mesmerize those around you with your individuality.

5. The Natural

If your charm lies in being effortlessly yourself, spontaneous and genuine, the Natural is your seduction type. Naturals like actress Jennifer Lawrence attract with their authentic and approachable demeanor. 

To learn more about how easy it is to fall in love, read a book called The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle on Blinkist. It talks about being yourself and living in the present. The Natural’s power is in their genuine presence, making connections feel easy and real.

6. The Coquette

Do you keep admirers on their toes with your playful and elusive charm? Then you might resonate with the Coquette. This type, like Scarlett O’Hara from Gone with the Wind, is an expert in the push-and-pull of attraction. 

To further explore this intriguing persona, consider diving into another great self-help book called The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene, available on Blinkist. While not exclusively focused on seduction, this book offers profound insights into understanding and navigating complex social dynamics, including the nuanced strategies of influence and allure that are second nature to the Coquette.

7. The Charmer

If making everyone feel special is your forte, you’re likely a Charmer. This type, akin to the warmth and grace of Princess Diana, creates lasting impressions with their kindness and empathy. 

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie is an excellent resource for Charmers, offering timeless techniques to build genuine connections and make every interaction count. Read the full article here and explore some great tips if you’re ready to charm your way into others hearts and minds.

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”
Dale Carnegie

8. The Charismatic

If you have a knack for drawing people in with your confidence and vision, much like the iconic Steve Jobs, you’re likely tapping into the essence of the Charismatic. This seduction type is all about inspiring and captivating with a mix of passion and persuasive power. Charismatics, like the late Jobs, have a natural ability to energize and influence those around them.

To learn more about how this person attracts others, read a book called Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert B. Cialdini. You can find a summary of the key ideas on Blinkist. This book reveals the psychological principles that Charismatics instinctively use to sway opinions and ignite movements.

9. The Star

If you naturally command attention and exude an air of glamour, you might just align with the Star seduction type. Stars, like Beyoncé, mesmerize everyone with their dramatic presence and undeniable charm.

They know how to make an entrance and leave a lasting impression, much like Marie Antoinette did with her revolutionary fashion choices.

For a deeper understanding of the famous Austrian-French Queen, explore Bedtime Biography: Queen of Fashion by Caroline Weber on Blinkist. You’ll learn how Marie Antoinette, with her bold fashion statements and rebellious nature, challenged the norms of 18th-century French court.

And by embracing your own unique style and confidently stepping into the spotlight, you can channel the same impactful presence that defines the Star.

After exploring the art of seduction and discovering the various seduction types, do you know which one resonates with you? Are you The Natural, or perhaps even The Coquette? 

And what if you find yourself on the opposite end of the spectrum, inadvertently pushing people away? Don’t worry, this isn’t the end of your journey in seduction!

Let’s shift our focus to overcoming the traits of the Anti-Seducer and embracing a more magnetic persona.

How to Become a Seducer?

  1. Be Self-Aware: Take a moment to self-reflect. How are you perceived in social settings? Understanding your strengths and areas for growth is the first step towards positive change.
  2. Be Confident: Confidence is key in seduction. Work on building your self-esteem from within, rather than relying on others for validation. Remember, a secure presence is inherently attractive.
  3. Be Positive: A positive attitude can be your best accessory. Focus on the good in situations and people, and let this optimism shine through in your interactions.
  4. Practice Tact and Grace: Politeness and tact go a long way in winning hearts. Improve your social skills, be considerate in your communications, and watch how it transforms your relationships.
  5. Be Empathetic: Truly listening and engaging with others’ interests can deepen connections. Show genuine interest and empathy, and you’ll be surprised at how much more engaging you become.
  6. Be Spontaneous: Break free from predictability. Add a dash of spontaneity and openness to new experiences in your interactions. This not only makes you more interesting but also more engaging.
