  • Think rock paper scissors is a random game of chance?

  • That is probably why you aren’t winning.

  • Here’s a little science and dirty psychology to sharpen your game

  • and help you totally dominate at rock paper scissors.

  • First throw: If youre playing against a guy, throw paper first.

  • Data shows that men often go with the manly rock on the first throw

  • so throw paper to totally emasculate him.

  • Remember to look at him in the eye and don’t smile when you do it.

  • Next throw: if you just lost, throw whatever would have beaten your opponent the previous role.

  • So, if you just lost a paper, throw scissors next.

  • Your foolish opponent will probably stick with the past winner and broke paper again.

  • If you won the first throw, congratulations!

  • Now switch it up because losers most often will not stick with the losing throw.

  • Losers often throw in a predictable order.

  • If he lost with rock, odds are hell throw paper next.

  • If he lost with paper, odds are hell throw scissors next.

  • Cycling through the namerock, then paper then scissors.

  • Anticipate your opponent’s next throw by paying attention to what he just threw.

  • It will seem like youre reading his mind.

  • Third throw: Most casual players will not throw something three times in a row.

  • So if he throws two rocks, you should throw scissors next

  • because hell probably abandon rock in a sweaty panic.

  • Now youve got him on the ropes.

  • And finally, close your eyes.

  • The mirror neurons in your brain can force you to copy your opponent in a split second before a throw.

  • Research shows blindfolded players win slightly more.

  • Plus how badass is it to screw someone at rock, paper, scissors with your eyes closed.

  • That’s some jedi shit right there.

  • Now go forth and demolish your opponents

  • but remember not to gloat instead give them a hug.

  • And tell them not to suck so bad next time.
