Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear there is someone, somewhere
Through the wind, and the chill, and the rain
And the storm, and the flood
I can feel his approach like a fire in my blood
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
“Holding Out For A Hero” - Bonnie Tyler
Hey, this is Tom from Couplific.
Today, I present to you my Ultimate James Bauer's "His Secret Obsession" review.
What is this Course About?
We humans are all creatures of patterns - things we do every day, over and over again.
And this course is about revealing a pattern in a man’s behavior.
The whole course centers around the fact that we men have a biological instinct - a drive to thrive in certain kinds of situations.
What kind of situations?
Situations where we feel we can rise to a challenge, to seek adventure, to act as the hero.
And we won’t rest until we get the feeling that we are, in fact, rising to a challenge.
James Bauer calls this the “Hero Instinct.”
Want an extreme example?
A few years ago, the British psychological illusionist Derren Brown created the TV show "Hero at 30,000 feet", featuring a young man called Matt.
Matt has a terrible fear of flying and is about to be confronted with the absolute worst, terrifying situation of his life - the pilot of the plane that he somehow managed to board gets sick during the flight, and nobody is there to help land the plane. Matt does not know that he is the participant in this real-life "Truman Show".
Will he rise to the challenge to act as a Hero?
Yes, it’s a TV show, but I can assure you that the guy is not an actor. He has been unconsciously conditioned and trained over weeks before the big finale happening in 30,000 feet. (Note: If you ever have the chance to see Derren Brown live, by all means go get tickets! I've seen him in London, his shows are absolutely mind-blowing... But, I digress.)
So, obviously, the “Hero Instinct” described in James Bauer's course is not about staging an aircraft accident. (Aren’t you glad now?! ;-))
And it’s not a “technique” or a “trick.”
So, what is it?
James Bauer describes it as a bridge.
A bridge between his desires and your desires.
Would you agree that we are all magically pulled towards people who meet our needs?
So, if you give your man the opportunity to meet his need to be your Hero, you are creating this magical pull yourself.
If you don’t do this, the bad news is this:
He will find a way to get his need met outside of your relationship.
Do you recognise these symptoms in your relationship?
If your man pulls away, continue reading to learn how James Bauer's course about the Hero Instinct can help you.
How is this Course Organized?
You’ve got two main parts:
Part I is called “How The Hero Instinct Works” and covers the theory. It consists of 11 modules, and you learn how to recognize the hidden patterns of the Hero Instinct.
Part II is called “How To Use The Signals” and describes how to put the things you learned in part one into practice. In 6 modules you discover specific applications and examples.
Also, James included his “Text Message Formulas” as a bonus.
And to get you started right away, you get the “7 Day Quick Start Action Workbook”.
Course Contents Overview
So, let me give you an overview of the contents of each module.
I need to keep this to the most important key principles for each chapter since there is just too much content to cover everything here.
Part I - “How The Hero Instinct Works”
The first part describes the “theory” of the Hero Instinct.
But don’t let the word “theory” put you off - James Bauer writes in a very direct and entertaining way, with lots of real life examples.
Module 1 - “The Secret Longing of Every Man”.
In this module you learn
- What the primary goal of the Hero Instinct is
- What the three components are that describe the instinct
- How to use them as a bridge to a man’s heart
To practice, James encourages you to use what you learn in this chapter by observing the men around you, identifying opportunities to trigger their Hero Instinct.
Key Lesson #1
You can channel the flow of any man's deepest passion, toward his relationship with you.
Module 2 - "The Unspoken Desire He'll Never Admit"
In the next module, James Bauer teaches you
- Why men can't tell you what they want most
- Why do "normal" guys think they need to be a hero?
- How you can tap into his limitless source of desire
- How to channel his desire, make it feed into your relationship, and make it stronger.
Being able to give him this feeling is like giving him a precious, unique gift of incredible worth to him.
Key Lesson #2
His highest goal is to be someone's hero. But he will never ask you to fulfill that need.
Module 3 - "Make Him See The Light"
This module describes
- The secret of instant transformation
- How you can create this special kind of relationship that is based on purposeful intention to enhance each other’s happiness
- How your happiness can become his mission
This has been one of the most important modules in Part I for me personally. The way James describes this male need to feel worthy touched me deeply. When I’m able to be a Hero for my wife Anne, I can open to her emotionally. And - the most important part - I like the version of myself that I find in Anne's presence.
Key Lesson #3
Change is hard, and it takes time. But our emotions can change in an instant because our emotions are controlled by what we believe is coming next.
Module 4 - "The Fascination Trigger"
In this module, you learn
- Why we are fascinated by things that are highly relevant to our basic needs.
- How you can apply this "fascination principle" to capture you man's undying love and emotion.
- How you can become the one person in his life connected to his drive to feel that he has a purpose and that he has the power to succeed in that purpose.
Most importantly, you learn James' famous "Deserted Island Signal Formula" - what it is, and how to apply it.
Key Lesson #4
Don't try to get him to love you. Fascinate him instead.
Module 5 - "When Men Say, "I'm just not ready."
You will learn the different phases men go through in their life:
- The Knight Phase
- The Prince Phase
- The King Phase
James teaches about manliness and the drive we have to provide, and how you can use that drive for the benefit of your relationship.
Key Lesson #5
A man will ignore the desires of his heart, in order to achieve an identity he can feel proud of.
Module 6 - "How Your Desires Can Fascinate Him"
In the next module, James describes
- How to present your desires to him in such a way that they trigger his drive to be a provider
- How to show him a vision of the future that clicks with his need to win at gaining your approval
- How to show him that he does not have to choose between you and the adventurous life pursuits his instincts call him to chase after.
- How to use his desire to be your Hero
- How to connect his provider instinct to his relationship with you
Also, you learn the three best fascination phrases - the special signals that are picked up by his male provider instinct.
The module ends with the five steps that will transform your man.
Key Lesson #6
Show him how he can win.
Module 7 - "The Secret Currency of Happy Relationships"
This is one of the most important modules in Part I.
In it, you learn
- How you should never think of yourself as having "arrived."
- That your relationship never just stays the same - it’s always getting stronger or weaker.
- Why men need incremental progress, no matter how small.
- Why you should not play "hard to get"
- How you can use "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" to your own advantage.
Also, James teaches you what to do if you two don't want the same things.
And - somehow this rings a bell for me, too - how to avoid your dates beginning to feel a little stale and predictable.
Key Lesson #7
Lust is longing, not fulfillment.
Module 8 - "Rocket Fuel: How to Build Relationship Momentum Fast"
This module describes
- How to create shared relationship goals,
- How to make those goals meaningful
- How to create a new and improved "Mixtape" for your relationship as a gift to your partner
Remember "Mixtapes"? I really liked James' idea of an improved version of this old classic.
Key Lesson #8
Build your relationship into something he would be very reluctant to lose.
Intertwine your life with his.
Module 9 - "How to become His Secret Obsession."
On our deathbed, all of us will judge our lives based on the impact we had on the people we care about.
This module shows you how you can create this impact:
- You learn why communication is not enough.
- Why feeling understood is what really matters.
- How you can make him feel understood.
- What he really means when he says "I want you to have my back."
- The difference between brilliant choices and deadly mistakes in certain situations in your relationship.
- How you can influence him from within the sacred interpersonal space accessible only to you.
- What the "X-Ray Question" is and how to use it to discover his hidden needs and desires
- How to deal with conflicting desires
My guess is that this is the longest module.
Personally, I think the male need for "Feeling understood" cannot be overstated - again, it's something that totally rang a bell when I was studying this module.
Key Lesson #9
Position yourself in the eye of the storm, at the center of his raging impulse to become a part of something significant.
Module 10 - "Get Deeper Intimacy by Revealing More"
In this module, we are going even deeper. You learn
- How to be open about yourself
- How to go one step deeper than "Good communication."
- 3 Questions to ask yourself
- How to be receptive as your guy reveals himself to you
- How to acknowledge his need to impress
This module focuses on the one factor that determines whether or not your man feels connected (hint: it has something to do with vulnerability and shame).
Also, you learn about the "Damsel in Distress Signal" - the signal that had the most impact on the relationship with my wife.
Key Lesson #10
Don't feed him problems to solve. Let him discover them instead.
Module 11 - Three Things That Can Go Wrong (and how to fix them)
Other than in books and movies, in real life, things don’t always go smooth. This module focuses on what to do if things go not the way you intended.
You learn what to do
- If he misunderstands your sudden change.
- If your optimism polarizes him toward pessimism
- If you get scared and sabotage your own success.
Also, James Bauer covers two important methods:
- The "Foot-in-the-door" technique, and how to get things rolling
- The "I owe you signal."
Key Lesson #11
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Part II - “How To Use The Signals”
Now we are diving into the “real world” application of the stuff you learned in Part I.
James describes real-life applications and examples in great detail, making it easy to stick the concepts in your memory.
But don’t worry, there is no need to memorize all at once.
You can (and should!) pick one of the methods, focus on that one idea, and master it.
Then, gradually, you are making progress without feeling overwhelmed with all the options.
You know that you achieved mastery when you start designing your own signals, based on the patterns of the hero instinct you see all around you.
Module 12 - "The Private Island" Signal
In this chapter, you learn
- How to tap into the things that he is already fascinated with
- How to create proximity and propinquity
- 3 Practical examples
Also, James gives you a brief explanation of why this works (linking the practice back to the theory you learned in Part I).
Module 13 - "The X-Ray Question"
This module describes
- How “X-ray questions” give you an unfair advantage.
- How they let you get inside your man's mind and hear what he really wants
- How to uncover the things he secretly wants more of in his life
- How to pay attention to the kinds of goals and challenges that seem to light up his emotional world
Also, the module covers 5 example phrases you can use and a (kind of surprising) story example.
Module 14 - "The Glimpse Phrase"
In module 14, you learn
- How to use this phase and watch his eyes change as a fantasy blooms in his mind
of how amazing the future could be with you.
- How to open his mind to a new possibility - something special, something unique
- 4 Example phrases
Module 15 - "The Secret 'Currency' Of Happy Relationships"
This module relates to module 7 in Part I.
In it, James Bauer describes
- How to make "emotional deposits" in your relationship every day to grow and strengthen the bond you have with your man.
- How each deposit takes less than 10 seconds.
- How making these simple deposits cut the chance of separation in half!
- 6 example phrases
Module 16 - "The 'I Owe You' Signal"
This module describes this influence strategy, relating to Module 9 of Part I.
- Why men have a strong desire to appear consistent.
- How you can use this to your advantage
- Several example phrases
- A real life example
Module 17 - "The 'Damsel In Distress' Signal"
The final module in Part II teaches the most impactful signal that you can send to your man.
James Bauer explains
- How to tap into a man's natural protective instincts
- How to switch him into "Serve and Protect" mode
- How to recognize his strengths and abilities in real time, without giving up your confident, capable and empowered way of living as a woman
- 4 Example Phrases
Most importantly, James covers several examples that will not work, and another real-life story to illustrate the signal.
“His Secret Obsession - Text Message Formulas”
This bonus training enhances the contents from the main course.
In 5 chapters, the “Text Message Formulas” training covers how to apply the core principles of “His Secret Obsession” through text messages.

Chapter 1 explains
- Why you can use texting
- What the four word-text message is to get the passion back

Getting his attention when you're in the room is just half the battle.
You want to be unforgettable!
You need him to keep thinking about you when you're in the next room. Or at the opposite end of the city. Or when you're halfway around the world. 🙂
- 3 Example Phrases
- Why you should be careful with these curiosity triggers
- The difference between holding back information and being manipulatively vague
Chapter 4 is named “Texting Your Life Story”
Doesn't "Life Story" sound too extreme? It isn’t really. You learn

And according to the testimonials I read on James’ website, there are women from all over the world having success with what he is teaching:
But, since he’s the author, you kind of expect this on his own website, right?
So, what can I tell you about my own personal experience?
After working my way through the whole course for this review, I gave “His Secret Obsession” my wife Anne to read.
And - she totally loved it. And she tried some of the Hero Instinct techniques on me. But - get this: Even though I recognized it and knew what she was doing, it STILL had an effect on me. Amazing.
For instance, when she was giving me some “Amsel in Distress” signal - I recognized it. I knew the pattern, the technique - simply because I read the chapter a few weeks ago. But I still had to “save” her from carrying and assembling that freaky Ikea HEMNES chest of drawers... And it was giving me incredible joy.
Or, she keeps sending me text messages that spark my curiosity. Again, I realize what’s going on - and I STILL want to know what she means.
And many other, more umm… private things that I’d rather not talk about in public 🙂
Nothing makes me happier, and - yes, if I'm totally honest - turns me on more than knowing what I can do to make my wife happy.
And after reading “His Secret Obsession”, Anne knows what she has to do to let me be her hero - all while allowing us both to enjoy the process.
