Social proof is more for places where girls actively seek status, like nightclubs with table service, not regular bars and chill neighborhood spots you should be going to. -- RooshV author of "Bang!" (click here to get it).
If you tend to be a quieter type of guy, you're probably not eager to get into a busy nightclub and "play up" who you really are. After all, what happens if you're after a relationship and you've wowed her amazing social proof at a nightclub? She'll soon learn that isn't who you are.
Keep the social proof to a minimum - Some "PUAs" have talked about routines involving having friends follow you with a camera, taking pictures and acting like you're some big shot movie star (that the world doesn't know about).. Yeah... that's not for me and something I don't recommend for most guys.
Keep things relaxed and along the lines of "who you are".. you'll experience much more positive results!
