The psychology of seduction | Raj Persaud | TEDxUniversityofBristol



Psychiatrist Dr Raj Persaud argues much human distress arises out relationships. But we can all become more skilled in our relationships be they in the domains of friendship, romance, work or career. Deploying the psychological principles behind seduction, the author of a new book on dysfunctional love – ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ – explains how improving how seductive you are, will also lead to benefits across many other aspects of your life, beyond just romance.

Raj Persaud is a Consultant Psychiatrist who has written and broadcast widely in the mainstream media besides working as an academic and clinical psychiatrist, achieving the senior post of NHS Consultant Psychiatrist at the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley Hospitals from 1994-2008. He has won numerous academic distinctions including the Royal College of Psychiatrist’s Research Prize and Medal and holds amongst 8 degrees and diplomas including a First Class Honours degree in Psychology.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    If this PhD guy is such an expert on seduction then why is he not getting laid like a rockstar? Raj Persaud is a proven fraud who was suspended from practicing psychiatry after being exposed to nine cases of plagiarism. If you truly want to understand romantic seduction look up Zan Perrion.

    I think I've just realised my mistake. I always thought the idea of a date was to be as funny as possible, tell as many stories as possible and demonstrate how smart and capable I am to show that I would be a great partner/mate. In doing this I have been 100% focused on showcasing myself which of course now smacks of selfishness and perhaps desperation..? In assuming that no matter what I'd like to be with this person and I must do/say everything possible to get them. Focusing on your date instead and listening to them, finding out what they really want and what they're really like etc is really an entirely different approach and it does make a lot of sense. I personally can't stand when someone I'm with – even a friend – just talks non-stop about themself, trying to be funny etc, it's so boring and annoying!! It truly is! And I hate having to 'pretend laugh'. For me it's a genuine belly laugh or it's nothing. Bottom line is I guess everyone is really only interested in themselves, at least at first. Then later on once you get to know each other a bit more, other things come into play like money etc.

    In my opinion, it's easy to find out the unmet need (What Persaud left out of his speech). We all have similar and common needs in life, the need of feeling important, amused, satisfied. It doesn't have to be as specific as the case in Casanova's story.

    Wouldn't ppl get suspicious on a date where the other person exclusively agrees or disagrees on everything?

    Dr. Persaud, an excellent Ted-talk, thank-you!. side note for any readers out there who would like a truly fascinating read, try "The memoirs of Jacques Casanova de Seingalt 1725-1798. It's lengthy but a truly absorbing read.

    There is something much better than disagreeing in the first half and then agreeing in the latter half. I can share that for a price.

    To provide the lady that has problems with the letter R a play without this letter doesn't mean at all saying that she is perfect just the way She is. It's actually a way to tell her: hey, real life conversations do not work well for you, because of your problem; so, let me give you a text that you are capable of reading without problems. It is, actually, a way of telling her: hey, you have a problem; let me help you mask/hide it, because your normal talking is not good. It feeds the idea: do not speak freely, cause you are not being good at it: limit yourself.

    That suit is very distracting and not in a seductive way! He makes some good points, but did he seduce his audience I wonder?

    meeting the right person begins with KNOWING ourselves FIRST :). Then we know exactly what to look for. 🙂
