Have a genuine sense of humor, get educated, grow up. You guys are just looking for the easy way out, with 'store bought' answers. I feel sorry for most of you, i.e., with your silly lists.

The entire point of the show is the fact that Don (or Dick) is playing a part. Not even he can be Don Draper. If you’ve watched the show, you come to realise just how toxic of a person he is and how many problems he has. His confidence and “alpha male” persona is just a front, trying to mask all his insecurities and emotional strain. No one should want to be like Don Draper because it’s an impossible role to play - not to mention toxic.

IF not for MADMEN would this feature Sean Connery's 007? It's fiction! Likely written by someone lacking what you see in Don Draper

For all these people going on about the insecurities wrapped up in the Don Draper character, don't be tedious. The character knows and pushes his life, respects himself (even if he doesn't always take care of himself), and conveys certainty in an uncertain world.

Don Draper is a made up character with writers that script the outcomes.
Denny Thayil (2 months ago)
He has a clever comeback and nothing negative happens, because that's how the screenwriters wrote the scene. In real life, try this cocky shit and you will be thrown out of your cockiness in a snap. People don't like cocky. Clients don't like cocky and bosses sure don't like cocky. Be careful. In real world, very few cocky people survive. The ones who survive are usually owners or large stockholders. If you do not fit within that category, be very careful with your cocky self confidence or it will be fast ending and another one bites the dust won't be just a song phrase.

It’s a TV show! It’s based on a script! What idiot uses a TV show as an example for anything? Example being well dressed and looking professional is not a personality trait. It’s based on experience!! Being able to walk through a crime scene while looking like you are a professional career man is not an alpha male trait! It’s belonging to a class in our social structure!

a - There's no such thing as an "alpha male" even the guy that coined the phrase when he postulated the theory said it was bullshit and b - Don Draper was a self loathing, hypocritical, hollow, miserable fraud. Even John Hamm said he'd hate to be him and it was exhausting playing him. Why would anyone want to be him?
Eqx716 (3 months ago)
Be Don Draper? More like DON't be Draper. I wish this ended with... Despite all these alpha traits, Don Draper's life progressively devolves into shit over decade the series encompasses until he becomes a zen monk or whatever at the end. This video should just say something like "drink like a fish and womanize for ten years and then take up Buddhism."
JudgeJulieLit (7 days ago)
The Buddhism was just for show, to get the feel of it to fabricate a global ad slogan for a counternutritious soda product that would simulate sincerity and nutritional-spiritual soundness.
Claude Diamond (3 months ago)
Confidence adds to persuasion and influence in sales. People love a Winner and are only polite or tolerate weakness or mediocrity in salespeople. They envy and are attracted to strength and self assurance. A guts salesman gets to fire the prospect who is wasting their time. Imagine no more “I need to think about it” or “call me later nonsense”
N J (3 months ago)
This video is dense as fuck. I can't believe I used to buy into all of this faux-confidence shit when I was younger. Don is confident because he's handsome - which provided him a lifetime of validation which made him feel good about himself. He's also highly competent at his profession (which again is something he had since day 1). You can't emulate a character like Don Draper.

Don didn't reject Pete's "compliment" to prove he doesn't care, he rejected it because Pete was trying to manipulate him, sucking up to Don to get him to like him. And Pete was doing a poor job of it, he was coming on way too strong. Don was letting Pete know that he sees right through him; he was effectively saying "I don't mind being friendly, but you're not going to manipulate and use me." He wasn't being petty he was establishing boundaries.

Don Draper is only confident in the role hr plays out in public. In private he is plagued by his insecurities, repetition of the same mistakes all over again and again and his self destructive behaviour. Have you even watched the series?
jason d (4 months ago)
Confidence, is not what will determine whether, or not you get a woman. Everyone is different.I didn't hold eye contact with ALOT of women…and they were into me. Some women, actually like the whole looking down,or away eye movements.Some women, think it's cute,mysterious. And this is me talking from experience, not just making it up.I get uncomfortable holding eye contact with anyone for too long, and look away... I would like to read some responses from experiences, anyone interested in sharing their experiences? :)

David Ashborn (4 months ago)
Always clever? I don't see that as confident, it seems really try hard. A guy like this in the real world would be branded as a stuck up jackass who tries too hard to be cool. A truly confident man can make mistakes and be totally at peace with that fact. Because people aren't perfect. He's unrelatable. People like him in reality are fake, hiding behind a facade of faux confidence. And that pregnant joke, dick move, and homophobic as hell.

Only if you view Jonah Hill in this role similar in character to the one he played in Moneyball, sure. But what if he’s more Joe Pesci...in just about any movie? Genetics and confidence sort of work hand-in-hand. The more attractive one is, the more they receive favorable treatment. But, it’s not absolute or restricted to attraction. Billy Joel is ONE UGLY dude...but he was married to one of the most beautiful women in the world who didn’t need his money. And on, and on, and on. He even states this in the breakdown, to some degree, “confidence resides within...etc.”. I agree with the other comment that this statement is an excuse and a cop out.”

Eugenio Pena (5 months ago)
Don is not right in the head. The man dissociated himself from his own identity. He became somebody else and only was who he was when he was around Anne or his brother. He tarnished relationships and didn't leave much sympathy when it happened. Imo, he used this idea of another self to create an alter ego, one where all of his buried feelings come up from his childhood memories (i.e. how he wishes he would've handled them granted if the opportunity ever came again and how those past experiences molded a set mentality to stay in line with while not breaking away from the norm). He lived in a whorehouse where women that were attractive were constantly being taken advantage of by men that were probably married. You see the same shit happen in his present times where little spots scattered around Downtown were filled with women of you're choosing and you'll go there married or not only if you knew the password. Coming from that setting and being surrounded by it in his current times makes that cycle difficult to escape from. It winds up leaving him not able to make firm connections with people since he's always had people coming and going throughout his life without knowing when these people would leave, feeling entitled to your time without realizing that we all have a switch in which we don't know when it goes out and seeking an outlet where he can pretend that the people he's giving himself to are his family when in fact they're random people who just seem to pop up but isn't everybody essentially a passerby in life. In here one moment then out the next, sometimes on their own accord while other times they have no control. Coming to that realization makes you realize how almost futile it is to make relationships in this life. There's no point if we don't know when we can go so why should I say hi and get to know this guy if he might be gone by tomorrow? That kind of idea being made clear to Don when he saw his father get kicked in the face being alive in one breath then out before you catch the next. Building connections isn't in him but embracing the moment is. The NOW but we have to take in all that's happened in truth; at least our own truth and acknowledge all of what has taken place which is what the show encourages rather than constantly moving. Sometimes we have to stop, take a few moments to absorb the details then move onward. If you're constantly moving forward then how can you tell if everyone behind you is having a good time, that what's displayed before your eyes is with or without purpose which winds up leaving a distrust in our own ideas making us walking contradictions; taking ideas up then constantly turning on them making him a man that isn't of his word therefore not a man but just somebody who's getting by. You wind up feeling insignificant without true identity but if you just abide by what you ultimately want to do then you won't need videos like this one or 10 steps to get laid or 5 ways to get her pussy moist, etc... If you embrace who you are with PURE honesty, admiration (I don't mean being an egoist or being mean to yourself when you fuck up) and a will to change for the better, then videos like this will be useless. I mean that's how we would've wanted to see Don in the end

B. Alvn (3 months ago)
its an insidious substance that can be hard to get the upper hand over, that's for sure. i go back and forth, but i've never quit completely, despite it causing me some problems and also being someone who is very into staying healthy both mentally and physically. but here's the thing: i don't ever want to quit drinking completely...it is too fun and also helps me access my creative side as well as my nature-loving side. sounds like you have got a handle on it, which is good to hear. we all have to find a balance in our lives and our relationships with whatever substances, even just food. typically i will quit drinking for 2 or 3 months at a time at least once a year, usually twice, that gives me some balance. i always note great improvements in my overall well-being, but i also find myself bored and missing a side of myself (the creative and outdoorsy aspects, and sometimes the whole nightlife thing), so i usually relish drinking again for the first 2-3 weeks at least. tricky!
Eqx716 (3 months ago)
+B. Alvn Well said. Definitely lessens your game... Especially if your an alcoholic like myself. It was fun but led to legal issues, heartbreak, and sexual dysfunction, thus I avoid it nowadays 😅. Plus it killed 3 other family members. Ironically though the only good thing alcohol ever did for me was lead me to the bar where I met my wife who saw me at my absolute worst! We had a lot of good times drinking at first though... Until she realized I was always drinking. Madmen both helped and hurt my efforts to change my ways. Ultimately though, rewatching it now and looking back... I'd say the series is an excellent exploration of alcohol use and abuse.
B. Alvn (3 months ago)
alcohol (more than maybe a beer or so) is rarely a good idea when it comes to trying to score with women. it takes away your ability to respond in appropriate ways, to read situations and other people, to have good judgement, etc. it also can make you more of a wallflower, at least it can do that to me...same with weed, coke, and other drugs...i don't think any of them make your game better. of course, once you are on a date or already intimate with a girl, that's a way different story...but initially it rarely helps.

Gottfried Osterbach (5 months ago)
Don Draper is the mask of an introvert who has serious issues and adopts a persona to achieve the things they want. It is incredibly self destructive and ultimately not fulfilling. It harms himself and all around him. The man is someone with a personality disorder, low self esteem, and who feels they have nothing to offer and will be rejected if exposed. They do not seek help or to change that person rather to gild over it. He is a hollow shell of a man who wants to be more than he is and will never be truly happy with his achievements. Don Draper is who we all want to be and is an affectation that exposes the flaws of the world in turn. It is a great character that is someone we truly should wish to have as little in common as possible. Don is fundamentally incapable of being content with himself and loving others properly. Both are sociopaths, Don is the predator and Dick is the victim. Don Draper has a lot that can be learned from however the goal should be how to use the tools Don is capable of for our benefit, only be genuine.
Wilder Cross (29 days ago)
Osterbach. You are spot on. Thank you for your insightful and healthy commentary. Thank you for not merely nodding and agreeing like the lemming so many men are after watching this video. Don Draper is not a man to emulate. At all. He is at best a hollow narcissistic and materialist charade. Act like that around men and women and one will die a pathetic, existentially impoverished death - alone without a female, friends or family. He is a fool. I’ve known men like him in both professional and social environments. I have said precisely that to their faces, then turned my back to each one and walked away.

Dudes self-confidence without substance is nothing. Actually it doesn't exist without substance, Confident people don't spend time trying to figure out how to appear confident. You're only fooling yourselves and you want to become manipulators. Women don't want that. In fact, they want the opposite which is an honest man who's capable of expressing genuine emotions, who doesn't engage in compartmentalizations and other mental gymnastics to run away from his vulnerable self and who's capable of having and holding a healthy relationship. That's it, losers.

TheVideo Commenter (2 months ago)
Yeah those scenes were pretty weird specially in the earlier seasons how they triggered flashbacks like when he fell down the stairs and imagined himself in his childhood memory, I wasn't really sure if he had problems or if it was just a method Matthew used to have flashback scenes without confusion but when he started to see his father and that dead soldier without his arm I felt like he definetly had problems. Maybe too much booze causes them who knows? I also realized that I knew the word "borderline" wrong this whole time but I agree on what you said, Duck is a worse alcoholic, Don drank too much but Duck almost murdered Don while he was drunk.
witswg (2 months ago)
Ah I see what you mean lol, I never saw that as the symptom of schizophrenia though to be honest, just a quirky, surreal send-off for a beloved character. I always thought those surreal, clearly imaginary sequences were unneeded and had no real effect on the whole plot. Also, now that I think about it, you might be right about the borderline part actually, he certainly never got to Duck Phillips levels of alcoholism.

The first dialogue is also more of a metaphor as are most dialogues in mad men. You can't go out there, as in life wise, was applicable to the hobos who just aren't doing anything with their lives not putting themselves in the world. The dialogue put an end to the debate they were having earlier in the episode where the hobos were calling Don out for selling his soul. The last dialogue wins him the argument in saying, Don is out there facing the world, while the hobos can't.

I still haven't watch the video but I have to say, Don is not confident at all in his deep self. He just show people what he wants them to see

Actually Don is confident of his ability to create winning ad campaigns and to seduce women, at both which he serially succeeds.

Don is like a Hank Moody. There's just as much to be careful to avoid as there is to learn from positively.

true but isn't that part of being confident? Allowing people to see and believing that you are go together.

Draper is not that confident. He’s a tall, dark and handsome man. For about 70% of the series Don is a complete wreck.

Draper was a mere facade of who Dick really was. Most families in real life may seem picture perfect in public, but are actually a wreck. To say Don was a complete wreck might be true, but he was dealing with the stress of his formal and current life coming together.

There are times he was Dick Whitman in the show, an unwanted orphan who grew up in a whorehouse and there were times where he was Don Draper, a man that is desired by many, confident, clever slick bastard also known as "the alpha male"

Don is a complete wreck because of his past self, Dick Whitman. Don Draper is his new persona he created which is in fact his confident self.

Don Draper is the man. But I do have to say that the "you can't" scene was more about how the other guy was dressed. Don was older, more mature and he looked clean. Whereas the other guy is a hippy, which back then had a rep of being troublemakers in the 60's. I do agree though, the character oozes confidence. Jon Hamm did an outstanding job as Don Draper.
