If you haven’t watched this video before, just know that today you will have something to laugh about because Frank Tufano is getting wrecked.
If you already have seen this video, do not click away just now, let me tell you that you will learn something new.
Why? Because I’ll analyze the subtle body language of Frankie boy so you’ll learn something new about psychology and veganism.
1. The clash of agreeableness
What is apparent right from the beginning of this video, is that there’s not only an obvious difference of ideology between the two discussion partner or should I say: opponents. It is also a difference of agreeableness.
Paul Bashir, the vegan founder, has this New York brash attitude, which honestly is quite appealing. It is that Joey Carbstrong no bullsh*t, bad boy attitude. It reminds me of Gary Vaynerchuk.
Yet Frankie, doesn’t matter how tough he might behave sometimes, is actually very high in agreeableness.
Frankie wants to look and sound hard, yet is actually deep down more of a people pleaser and even a comedian.
A discussion of these two attitudes is naturally very uncomfortable for the person, that is high in agreeableness. I know that I’m probably in the higher end of agreeableness, I’m a nice person and rarely call people out – and a discussion with people very low in agreeableness is a true pain to me.
So I can just imagine how Frankie boy feels after Paul told him that he’s essentially full of sh*t.
But honestly, we should feel zero empathy with Frank in that sense. Because Paul is speaking the truth.
The pain that this carnivore is feeling is a good thing. I think it’s about time that someone told him that he’s full of shit on a face to face level.
The reason why I’m so sure regarding Frank is being uncomfortable and losing the debate, is because we see, to the trained eye, stressful signs in Frank.
2. Subtle signs of psychological stress
Why are these signs important? Because usually if you’re winning an argument, or you feel confident, you don’t show much signs of stress. There are three tell-tale signs of uncomfortableness in that video.
1. The rate of blinking – especially if it changes over time. This is a sign of stressed out people and is also the reason why poker players wear sunglasses inside.
But blinking is not enough, to really understand how a person is feeling, one also needs to take a look at the microexpression. It’s the first milliseconds, where we are not aware of our behavior and we let our guards down.
In the clip (click the link below) Frank makes a first impression of sadness and then puts an artificial smile on his face in various occassions.
A line of Paul that truly seemed to struck a nerve is the attack on his business. In the clip Frank immediately tried to justify this.
Justification is nearly always a sign that a person has struck a nerve and that we feel uncomfortable and insecure. The chances are high that the business of frank is NOT profitable just because he took his time out to talk about it specifically.
Important life advice fellow:
If you get hit with a hard argument, counterpunch. Agree and amplify – make it look like you don’t care.
If Donald showed any sign of insecurities or micro-expressions he probably would not have won the election. Don’t try to explain.
3. Truth will win – in the end
There’s a good quote by Abraham Lincoln:
“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
In the end, truth will prevail.
In the clip of the debate, even the cameraman of Frankie is turning against him. That’s freaking hilarious.
Man, put yourself in Frank Tufano’s shoes. You’re buying a caveman suit. Go to a vegan event and get absolutely wrecked publicly.
Then the cameraman that you hired, that you paid money for, turns against your beliefs in front of the camera.
This is so bad – yet for us vegans it feels so good at the same time.
This is probably the most awkward and somehow fulfilling video that I’ve seen in a long time. We saw a clash of disagreeableness and agreeableness, obvious signs of stress and the conclusion, that truth will prevail in the end.
This scene was absolutely hilarious to review and I truly hope the cameraman is making his change, to the path of righteousness.
