Men From Around The World Share 'Guy Secrets' Women Don't Know

Men From Around The World Share 'Guy Secrets' Women Don't Know

Think you know everything about men? Well, think again. The following list contains classified chap info. Cryptic bro bombshells. Top secret masculine mojo. Discreet dude details on the down-low. Basically, here's a key to all those mysterious things that guys do. These are the undisclosed "Guy Secrets" that women don't know. Maybe it should have stayed that way? We'll let you be the judge of that.

58. We're efficient.

Sometimes we use the stream of our pee to try and clean poop stains on the bottom of toilet bowls.

57. We're committed.

I had a girl tell me that my hair cut looked nice. I’ve kept that same hair cut for 4 years since then.

56. We're squeaky clean.

Just because we're in the shower for an abnormally long time doesn't mean we're doing something untoward. Guys like to have long hot showers too ya know.

55. Stay cautious.

It’s not that we can’t take hints; we are just afraid of looking too far into something. If someone is flirting with me I have the dilemma of “Is she actually into me or is this just how her personality is?”

54. It's mostly hydraulics.

Boners don’t automatically mean arousal. That will never be said enough. Most of the time I’m not even aware of it happening.

53. It can be a lot, sometimes.

It's not the stress of work that's so bad; it's the stress of everyone depending on you working. We don't like our jobs and are forced to put in 40-50 hours a week, for the next 40-50 years. We desperately want to stop but can't because everyone is depending on us. If I drop the ball and quit or get fired it severely impacts the whole family. So I'm desperately trying to do well even though all I want to do is quit and stay at home. The stress is crippling with no end in sight.

52. Don't be shy.

If you want something to happen between us, you gotta meet us half way. If we’re not making a move, we are probably doing our best to not to come off as jerks.

black-people-1845715-300x199.jpgImage by

51. Tell it like it is.

We don't get the hint. Saying "I almost broke my neck in the driveway" is not the same as asking us to shovel it. In my mind I'm thinking "Thanks for the heads up, I'll be careful."

people-2562050-300x225.jpgImage by

50. Good to know.

I'm not staring at you, I'm zoned out thinking about how I'd start a brewery in Medieval England whilst my eyes just happen to be facing your direction.

people-314481-300x199.jpgImage by

49. Make a move.

Guys also like to be walked up to and asked out. My current girlfriend, soon to be fiancée, asked me out. We worked at the same company, and she just came up to me and said “Hey, I think you and I should go get dinner tonight.” I asked her who else was going, and she said “I think it’d be nice if it was just you and me.” So yeah, that was pretty cool.

people-1194312_1920-300x300.jpgImage by Solie Jordan from Pixabay


49. Be obvious.

As a favor, I worked on a girl's car one time and got pretty dirty. Afterwards, she asked me if I wanted to come inside and take a shower. I told her "no" because I hadn't brought any clean clothes to put on after the shower. She just kinda giggled. Yeah, us guys aren't exactly too bright when it comes to reading between the lines.

people-2605526-300x160.jpgImage by

48. Play ball.

We desperately want you to toss us things instead of just handing them to us. Everything. Even if it's a baby.

snowball-fight-578445-300x200.jpgImage by

47. Let it be.

Sometimes we want to not do anything because we get hard for no reason. Female teachers need to be told this in our education classes.

Honestly, I wish there had been a lesson in my education classes on how to deal with the awkward moments teenagers experience. Female teachers-to-be could have been taught how to handle boys having random boners without embarrassing the boy.

46. Be sensitive.

It's actually not always so easy to get an erection. Sometimes he's tired, or he's nervous or worried, or he's on meds that make it difficult (antidepressants are notorious for this) or any number of things. The stereotype is that men are always ready to get up and go, but this is far from true. So don't expect it, and don't be offended when his junk doesn't want to play, even if he does.

couple-1867688_1920-300x200.jpgImage by

45. Can't fix everything.

When people come crying to us, our first inclination is to fix the problem.

Since this is (often) not possible, lead with something along the lines of “Can I vent for a minute?” Or anything that signals to us this is just a time for active listening, rather than a problem solving session.

44. Don't look back in anger.

If you want something just ask us. We are task orientated. Saying, "I'm cold," won't always register to us as, "I need a blanket can you get me one." And if you're mad at us for something just tell us and we will probably stop doing that thing if it's realistic. DON'T just fester in your anger for days and wonder why we don't care. We do, we just have no idea what you want us to do.

couple-2206294_1920-300x235.jpgImage by


43. Take an interest.

If we have a goofy hobby and you take interest in it, even the slightest, we love it.

I’m a big gamer and my wife (who also games but not the same ones I play) will often watch what I’m doing, ask about the game, and generally take an interest.

Her saying “oh, are you looking forward to Anthem?” is really cool and I appreciate her interest, it’d be so easy for her to pay no attention, and her doing so makes a big difference.

42. Hairstyling tips.

We really do think your hair is good. It looked good before and after you got a hair cut. If looked good curly and it looked good straight. It looked good when you woke up and when you made it. As long as its shaped like the hair we gave girls on stick figures when we were 5 years old, we think it looks good.


41. We keep it bottled up.

Men have just as many issues with mental health - depression, anxiety, body issues. Please recognize this. I hate living in a world where it’s not socially acceptable for men to talk about these things.

A lot of guys would talk about their experiences and issues but don’t feel like they can. I feel like we just sort of ignore the issue and guys that have mental health issues are sort of looked down upon because men are all supposed to be outgoing and confident. Maybe you have a guy friend who doesn’t get out a lot, maybe he’s acting strange or isn’t totally there - this might be why.

I had a friend in college who really tried to get me to go to a male group therapy session - the thought of it gave me anxiety and I didn't go... but I really regret not going. I was able to make my situation better by removing myself from the toxic environment that I found myself in and talking more openly about my struggles to friends who would listen. I found outlets through film, media, music, and comedy. I'm not an expert on these issues but I know them firsthand. If you need help I strongly urge you to reach out to someone or seek therapy and find different outlets that spark joy.

40. Let's talk about it.

Men can have eating disorders and body positivity issues too! I've struggled for years, and yet the few people that I do open up to about it just write it off as a phase or just forgetting to eat once in a while. But when girls come forward with the same issue it's immediately addressed as a serious matter. And when the issue is talked about on a larger scale, men are rarely, if ever, included.

man-515518_1920-201x300.jpgImage by

39. Wise words.

Dudes can be crazy starved for touch. Or maybe just Americans but generally if you wanna be there for your guy, scratch his head or like, his back. Hold his hand, put your hand on his leg, do that thing where you guys lock arms/elbows when you walk.

When I’m frustrated or in my own world stressing about money or what I have to do later that day, it really brings me back and grounds me to enjoy the moment with my girl.

Take care of yo’ manz.

man-3851339_1920-300x200.jpgImage by

38. Carry that weight.

We feel a great social pressure to be strong, less emotional, carry others, make money. A lot of times we don’t know how to. And we’re scared. But we know we’re not supposed to be, and we know we’re not supposed to ask for help. So we get stressed and angry.

37. Know your place.

There is an unwritten rule of bathroom urinal etiquette that is never taught to young men, but is somehow universally known.

When a man enters a public restroom to pee in the urinal, he is to occupy every other available urinal from other urinating men. Meaning, the prime peeing positions are in urinals 1, 3, and 5 if that is available. 2 and 4 should only be occupied if there are no other choices.

36. You look cool, bro.

Most guys (at least that I know of) compliment other men in their heads but don’t say it aloud so that way we aren’t mistaken for being gay (which there is nothing wrong with). I compliment my best buds just to see their faces light up. I think more men need to get complimented on small things, it doesn’t happen that often.

happy-1836445-300x200.jpgImage by

35. Downtime is priceless.

When we come home from work, we could use some down time to do nothing. The car ride home does not count. Give us 20-30 minutes without unloading.

This may be true for everyone, but having a moment to just be dormant on your couch or in front of the tv lets our body and brain say, “Work is over and you can put it behind you!”

tv-3774381-300x174.jpgImage by

35. Snuggle up.

Cuddling with any girl (hell some guys too) with whom we’re close is the best thing ever. Even if it’s not a person you’re interested in, it just feels great. I feel safe, loved, and important whenever that happens.

couple-1149143-300x175.jpgImage by

34. Learn each other's language.

When you think you are being clear you are not being clear. At least thirty percent of the time a girlfriend tells me about something I'm completely unsure what she really means.

I used to think when I found a girl where that didn't happen she'd be the one. I now realize that approach is a surefire way to achieve a lifetime of bachelorhood.

33. Mommas boys.

My dad served in the Pacific during WW2. A kid from the Bronx, he had never been out of the Bronx in his entire life.

Then he got sent to New Guinea.

Decades later, as he lay dying in the hospital bed, he told us: as his young friends were being slaughtered by other young men, just before they died, they always cried for their mothers, never for their fathers, always for their mothers.

He said, "they were just kids, just kids being slaughtered by other kids."

And then they died, in his arms.

Their last words were always, "where is my mother? where is my mother? Where is my mother?"

Never for their fathers.

That affected him for his entire life. And dad lived a long time. He was the lucky one.


32. We all got issues.

Many men have anxiety and/or depression but we will not talk about and will get moderately annoyed at you for bringing it up.

31. The drama down under.

The mental struggle we have to go through to not scratch around our groin in a public setting. It'll take 100% of my willpower to not do it. The itching can drive me insane yet the euphoria from actually scratching it is so good, I often imagine this must be what it's like scratching a dogs ears.

30. Together in eternity.

As an older man, we don't expect you to look like a supermodel as we age together. Yes, at times I do see you as I did 30 years ago and every wrinkle and flaw disappears. Yes, there are times I see every wrinkle and flaw, and know how you got every one of them. They are beautiful too.

29. Ouch.

Sometimes, for the uncircumcised amongst us, your foreskin will roll up and completely refuse to stay rolled down again. This leads to the driest, most uncomfortable bell-to-cloth scenario that requires an awkward navigation toward the nearest bathroom. In such circumstances, there is no hope of being able to concentrate on any task. The feeling of having a rotary bench sander in your pants tends to occupy 99% of cognitive function.

man-379800_1920-300x200.jpgImage by

28. Nice sentiment.

I'm always afraid of accidentally making women feel uncomfortable in my presence, for example when I happen to walk in the same direction as a woman in front of me for a while. So I go out of my way to slow down, or speed up, when walking in proximity to a woman and we're both alone.

My wife, mother, and sister have made me aware of my male privilege, and it's all I can think about sometimes that I might be making someone scared just by being there. I'm not afraid of repercussions for myself, I just never want to make people feel that way.

I realized my smiling only helps sometimes, and speaking to them without being spoken to first is jarring sometimes. And it's not all women, but it's clear that most women will never, ever feel comfortable in the presence of a man they don't know on the street. No exceptions.

I'm sorry that the world is crappy, and that women are often victims of circumstances they don't control. I'm trying, ladies. And I always with interject when a panhandler gets aggressive or let you know when your bag is hanging open. I don't know the solution for this but I am hyper aware of it, and I hope one day the world is safe for everyone, not just me.

man-872100-300x200.jpgImage by

27. What are you thinking about?

Men have a box that our minds go into. It's called the nothing box. So next time you ask a man what he's thinking about and he answers with "nothing." There is a good chance he's telling you the truth.

man-4216529-200x300.jpgImage by

26. Too scary.

Sometimes we don’t talk to people because we don’t want to intimidate them. I might see a girl with a cool shirt on but I don’t want to make her think I’m coming on to her or something. Rather than freak her out that a 6’6 guy thinks she looks good today, I just leave her alone. Especially if we’re on an elevator or something where she can’t leave if she actually is uncomfortable.

girl-in-the-elevator-1382909-300x169.jpgImage by

25. History would suggest otherwise, but ok.

Guys have near zero ability to hold a grudge if an apology is genuinely offered and accepted. I mean, most guys have a great friend in their lives that started out with some dumb misunderstanding but worked itself out.

Women can nurse a grudge in ways most men cannot fathom.


24. Hint, hint.

We often get those passive hints you drop but ignore them because of how we are socialized. Men tell men what they want. If you don't directly ask, we assume it's optional.

I'm not saying it's right or wrong, it just is. If you want something, ask for it. We'll often do whatever you like. Especially if we like you.

speak-238488-300x200.jpgImage by

23. Clairvoyance isn't in the tarot cards.

We like to be complimented too. Thank us for stuff we do or just say something nice. It will 100% give the guy a testosterone boost for about an hour or so.

Subtle hints do not work. BE DIRECT - we ask for stuff because we want it. We are not mind readers.

We say stupid stuff all the time, that’s just guy humour, we don’t mean any of it so don’t get wound up when you overhear something said in front of bros.

We love our partners to bits, but we also enjoy seeing friends. We balance time between the two so we aren’t choosing them over you. You’re going to be there when we get back so it’s a win win for us.

We don’t WANT to do it all the time, but we do like it. Not every cuddle has to lead to the dirty deed. If you push it that way we won’t say no, but sometimes it’s about the emotional connection.

We aren’t mind readers - repeating this point because WE ARE NOT MIND READERS! Ok? Sweet!


22. Real insight here.

I'm gonna do my best to explain this one here:

We aren't always up for doing stuff together. It doesn't mean we don't care about you / the marriage / the relationship.

A lot of our hobbies that us men typically do, you will notice, revolve around being alone, focusing on something and getting the task done. It makes us feel fulfilled, productive, and proud.

We also aren't so entrapped by society when it comes to being social. In other words, just because Fred or Clive isn't posting on instagram about being out and about, people don't assume they're lonely, billy-no-mates types.

Because we can so comfortably be alone with our thoughts, sometimes it really takes a great deal or empathy and understanding on our part to appreciate that you might not also have hobbies you can do alone.

Where I can open my laptop and start playing videogames, my girlfriend doesn't have that node for "instant gratification". When you say you're bored, please help us to better comprehend what you mean by contextualising what is causing you boredom.

Sometimes we don't realise we are being selfish and making you feel lonely when all we want to do on a saturday is slob about.

We love you, our partners, dearly; but we're not always great at empathy because of a lifetime of being told to suck it up.


21. He's hot; she's hot.

Men can think a woman is hot without being attracted to her. Men can think other men are hot without being attracted to them.

(Some) Men can have a respect for someone's looks regardless of their gender. It doesn't mean they want to screw that chick or that guy, it just shows a level of appreciation for the way someone looks or the way they carry themselves.

20. It's about the journey.

Not sure if this is universal, but guys usually have least one pastime for which the process and ritual is just as satisfying, if not moreso, than the outcome. One example is my morning espresso. If I'm making it, being interrupted or rushed is very disruptive, to the point where I'd rather not have started it. For others it may be washing the car, barbeque, or shaving. But try to mind when guys are doing something where the means are and end in and of themselves. Being able to fully invest in these gratifying rituals is fulfilling to a surprising degree.

morning-819362_1920-300x225.jpgImage by fancycrave1 from Pixabay

19. Just ask us out already.

Men want to be wanted and desired too. I can count the number of times a woman has come out and either asked me out or told me she was attracted to me on one hand. And from my understanding that is a high number.

We don’t miss “hints” because we are dense or stupid, we miss them because we have learned the hard way that sometimes it’s just a friendly complement or some such. That embarrassment sticks with you.

If you’ve ever looked at a dude and though “wow he’s attractive/I’d like to go out with him” go talk to him. Men love confident women, and even if he doesn’t reciprocate you will make his day, or maybe even his year.

18. Say something, anything.

Not knowing sucks. I learned not to "blow up" a girl's phone, so I don't send more than 1, maybe 2 messages. Being left on read and thinking about what exactly it was that I messed up to not get a response, really sucks. Having to play it cool when I like someone to not scare her off, too.

texting-1490691-300x200.jpgImage by

17. He sucks, anyway.

We hate it when girls talk about their ex-boyfriend or ex love-interest. Unless you're going for the let-her-complain-to-you-and-then-have-her-realize-how-wonderful-and-nice-you-are method !

Also, guys cry too!

men-1276384-200x300.jpgImage by

16. No comment.

As a skinny dude, I don’t want you to talk about how skinny I am. I don’t know how to respond. I eat over 4,000 calories a day and I’m working with a trainer 2 days a week and I’m extremely self conscious about it. I’m also 30 and can’t grow a beard. Put these 2 things together and I want to hide.

15. He just goes to another school.

When guys are playing video games we are oftentimes playing with people we develop deep friendships with - the people we play with all the time. For example I’ve never met my best friend in person however our parents know the other by name, I wrote him a letter when he was in basic (his sister gave me the address), and I’ve been playing games with him for 4 years. But since we live so far apart we are not able to play games with each other everyday or even 1 time a week, so when you are yelling at your boyfriend whose been playing video games with friends for 3 hours just remember he might be talking to his best friend or people he has been playing games with for years, in addition to not talking to them for maybe a month.

game-2294201-1-300x200.jpgImage by

14. Ten minutes, max.

We don’t “literally talk about boobs for hours” as some folks would lead you to believe. At most it’ll be like this: a group of guys are sitting in the den watching the game, one says “you know who’s pretty hot?” “who?” “insert celebrity name or name of girl from class/work” “oh yeah she’s pretty bad.”

I think I speak for most guys when I say it’s awkward to talk about it massive detail, and it can get pretty uncomfortable.


13. You look nice.

Most of use really don’t care about fashion as much as you think we do. The make-up, the high heels, the elaborate hair styles, it all looks nice, but in the end, it’s you and other women that care more about that stuff than guys do.

12. We're sympathetic.

That often we're just as excited about your pregnancy as you are, emotionally involved, and are along for the ride. We feel the need to protect, provide, and do whatever we can for you and the little one growing inside you. And if something goes wrong it's a punch to the gut like we've never felt before. A miscarriage is a devastating event for a woman, but it is an awful feeling for us as well.

pregnancy-775041-300x199.jpgImage by

11. Profound.

We’re rarely if ever complimented and largely taken for granted. A majority of us have bad luck on online dating or just dating. A lot of us are largely depressed or cynical about life. Very few of us have randomly nice things happen for us during our day. Men struggle with finding friends and friendship when they get older. Loneliness, acceptance, self-acceptance and a lack of those three are some of the driving motivators for a lot of actions men do.


10. Hope he's ok.

The “bro code” isn’t a made-up thing. It’s actually a highly classified international set of rules set by the United Nations. Officially it’s called the “Laws and Regulations for Male Relations, Behavior, and Interactions”, but pretty much everyone shortens it to “bro code”. A booklet is mandated to be given to every birthed male when they reach the age of 4. Only men know about this, and failure to keep it in secret will result in death.

books-1453247-300x200.jpgImage by

9. Love is all we need.

Many guys are actually really lacking in confidence, usually due to bad experiences or otherwise. Some just want to feel loved once in a while. Hanging with the guys is great and all, but a genuine hug, or even just a compliment, from someone of the opposite sex can really turn someone’s day around. Make them feel wanted. Many of those “creepy” guys just don’t get that interaction often, so when they do, it’s mindblowing and overwhelming. Others, like me, are bitter and jaded by bad experiences, have a hard time trusting anyone. Someone genuine is rare, but too much can be terrifying. Sometimes we just want to vent, sometime we want to be held. Or sometimes we just want company.


8. Taking the bus is hard.

We're not Man-spreading. We are not showing our dominance over women by taking as much room as possible or to show off. We have balls. They're very sensitive to pressure, temperature and more. A little spread is the most comfortable for us to sit because of it. If you want/need to sit next to us vast majority will compromise for you over our slight discomfort. Thank you for understanding.

bus-731317-300x200.jpgImage by

7. Eyes up.

If you are a female and are wearing a shirt that remotely flatters your feminine form. ie. breasts or hips buttocks and you have interaction with a male and he doesn’t look once and maintains eye contact, you can bet he is likely respectful and is actively suppressing every carnal instinct to see your goods while listening to what you have to say.

Conversely a guy who cannot fight the urge isn’t exactly a creep either, he probably just has less will power.


6. They're all gonna laugh at you.

Guys are self-conscious too. Balding; gray hair early on; weight; overall appearance (clothing styles); how we look in a bathing suit on the beach (dad bods); how we think women think of us; how we think other guys think of us (respected, liked, trusted); all these are just some examples. The point is we absolutely care about our image and reputation, it just may not be verbalized.

5. Getting emotional.

Sometimes when we are watching a movie and I get up to pee or get a beer during a sad or emotional part, I'm doing it just so she doesn't see me cry. I don't mind crying in front of my wife but I'd rather her not see me tearing up when Moana finally makes it past the reef for the first time.

people-2566201-2-300x185.jpgImage by

4. Sleeping in for a reason.

If you have a son, don't rush into his room and demand that he get up immediately to do chores or something. He definitely has morning wood and would appreciate not needing to hide a boner from his mom. Give him like 5 minutes. Case in point:

I was sick when I was in my early teens maybe and some my neighbor and a couple other girls that I was friends with in the area stopped by to see how I was because I had been down and out for a few days.

I'm in my room with all the curtains drawn feeling like I'm dying and under like 3 thick blankets. My mom thinks "let's let them in and they can see for themselves." She let's them into my room and tries to tell me to get up, that I have company. When I just grunt dismissively, she grabs the covers and ripped them back so I can't try to roll over and bury myself in them. Thankfully I had a shirt and pajamas bottoms on, but I can never understand her thought process after all these years as to why she thought that was a good idea.


3. No subtext needed.

We actually mean what we say.

“It’s not my favorite restaurant,” does not magically mean something else, especially not that we hate your favorite place. I was happy to eat there and keep my mouth shut about my opinion, but you just haaaaad to drag it out.

Went to a dinner with my wife’s family when we first started dating. Pleasant dinner, if not a bit quiet. I just figured they’re not very chatty. After dinner my wife says “Can you believe my mom!” Did not see that coming. How could I respond? Just said “Yeah? What was that all about?” At which point my wife sounded off for like an hour about some invisible-to-me conversation that had happened with eyebrow raised, sighs and well-placed fork clanks between words in the conversation that I thought was the only one we were having.

So, ladies, if your man says something was “fine” he means just that...not “actually bad but I don’t want to upset you.”

2. Learn the language.

Guys can communicate in a series of head nods and grunts. Example:

Guy 1: walking down the street

Guy 2: nods head downward maintaining visual contact with guy1's face to see his immediate expression Guy1: nods head downwards as well Guy2: let's out small sigh as he is passing guy1

Here is the translation of what just happened:

Guy 1 and Guy 2 do not know each other indicated by the downward head nod, had they known each other the nod would be in an upward motion and eye contact would be maintained.

Guy 2 was trying to gauge weather guy 1 was a friend of foe by looking at his facial immediate facial expression. Had guy 1 furrowed his brow and not given the corresponding head nod guy 2 would know that he was a tango and wouldn't have given guy 1 a sigh.

Guy 1 nodded back, this indicates that he is indeed not an immediate threat and could be interested in guy 2's next communion.

As guy 2 was passing, he gave guy 1 a sigh, now there are many different types of sigh but is usually interperated as a indicator of a long day or fatigue or frustration. Now this is a sign of weakness, and in a way a small sign of trust. You wouldn't tell a tango you are weak. And by doing that, that let's guy1 know you are not a threat and are probably going to go get groceries or something lame.

Now depending on guy 1's mood, he will either mentally empathize with guy 2's situation or forget about it completely depending on his next task at hand. If guy 1 took the sigh to heart he will scrunch his bottom lip upward and his top lip downward while maintaining a blank expression, this let's guy 2 know he sends his condolences.

Just a small lesson in the universal language of dudes.

1. Truly, this is the top secret info we needed.

Obi-wan doesn't need to be on the high ground, the high ground just needs to exist within the battle;Obi wan knows that when he has the low ground he really has a high ground, from a certain point of view.

Look at his battle record: Maul: has low ground, wins Dooku:no high ground loses Dooku rematch: No high ground loses Grievous: has low ground wins Vader:Has high ground wins Vader rematch: no high ground, loses

Obi wan with the high/low ground is canonically the most powerful jedi. This is fact. Had Yoda not denied his request to battle the senate with typical jedi arrogance, Obi-Wan could have defeated Palpatine in the senate building, which housed a variety of different altitudes; this was designed so the chancellor could always have the moral high ground in political debates. But Obi-wan didn't fight the senate, and Yoda soon learned you can't fight Sheev in a normal 1v1. It took the tusken raiders years of conflict against Old Ben kenobi to grasp his superiority in terrain advantage, as you see them visibly flee in ANH when they realize he holds the low (inverse-high) ground; this was the optimal strategy against a near-invincible opponent.

Yoda is shorter than virtually every other fighter, which gives him a permanent low-ground disadvantage; however his saber-fighting style utilizes a flipping-heavy technique in order to negate this weakness for a temporary window. You'll notice that, after falling from the central podium he immediately retreats upon realizing he holds the lowest ground. You'll also notice that, while training Luke, he rides on him like a mount, to gain the intellectual high ground and accelerate Lukes training. Obi-Wan defensive form III lightsaber style synergizes with his careful military maneuvers; as he only strikes when prepared, he can always hold the strategic high ground.(that business on Cato Neimodia doesn't count) you'll come to realize that this is why Commander Cody's artillery strike failed against Obi-wan, when hundreds of jedi were killed in similar attacks. Cody failed to grasp the strategic situation, as the jedi masters elevation was superior to his by hundreds of meters, making him virtually unkillable. (you'll notice that all the jedi killed in order 66 were on level ground with their clones, thereby ensuring their demise). Had Cody taken his time and engaged the jedi on even terrain, he would have succeeded. Obi-Wan subsequently retreated under the surface of the lake, so that he could maintain the topographical low/high ground. This is why Obi-Wan is so willing to fight against impossible odds to the point where thrust himself into immediate danger; when your probability of victory is 1-to-10, you have the statistical (and therefore strategic) low ground, a numerical advantage you use your point of view to flip the value to 10/1. Almost losing is, in Obi-Wan's case, certain Victory.

As we all know, spinning is a good trick. However, only the Chosen One can spin outside of a starfighter. Palpatine tried spinning, but he lost due to this technique (but this was intentional, as losing gave him the emotional high ground when Anakin arrived). The reason for this is that spinning provides a yin-yang approach to combat (based in Eastern philosophy on balance), giving the spinner the high ground from above and below. Only the Chosen One can master the spin, as it is their destiny to maintain balance in the universe. This is why Obi-Wan was so emotional after defeating Vader on Mustafar; he expected to lose the high ground to the spin, but Anakin fell to the dark side and could no longer use his signature trick, becoming the very thing he swore to destroy. Additionally, Anakin told Obi-Wan that, from "[his] point of view, the Jedi are evil". This broadens Anakin's mind to the concept of relativity in the context of the moral high ground, a mere step away from tactical comprehension. Anakin doesn't hate sand for the reasons he told Padme; all Jedi hate sand, as the battlefield can rapidly change between low and high ground on multiple vectors, so your perspective must be from a certain three-dimensional point of view in order to comprehend who holds the high ground. This is the only reason why Obi-Wan killed Maul in Rebels. This is also the reason why Obi-Wan hates flying; there is no gravity in space, therefore there is no high or low ground from any frame of reference (This also negates the spinning trick). In ANH, Vader proves his newfound mastery by engaging Obi on perfectly even ground. However, Obi-Wan intentionally sacrifices himself on the Death Star, so that he could train Luke from a higher plane of existence, thereby giving him the metaphysical high ground. Why was Vader so invested in the construction and maintenance of the Death Star? Because he knows Obi-wan can't have the high ground if there's no ground left. As seen through the events of the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan was known to be on friendly terms with Senator Organa, whose homeworld held large quantities of mountainous terrain, the perfect habitat for a Jedi Master. Grand Moff Tarkin was already in position to destroy Alderaan as a first target, as the distance from Scarif to Alderaan was too vast to reach between the escape and recapture of the Tantive IV, even at 1.0 lightspeed. Alderaan had been the initial target all along, as Obi-Wan with the high ground was the primary threat to the Death Star. How? Because a moon-sized space station would have some form of gravitational pull, thereby negating Obi-Wan's zero-gravity weakness; Obi-Wan with the perpetual high-ground in a low-orbit starfighter would easily be able to fire proton torpedoes through a ventilation shaft, although the Empire was uncertain of the specific weakness of the Death Star planted by Galen Erso (who was a good friend). In Return of the Jedi, you can see that the Throne Room contains a variety of different altitudes; Palpatine placed these there to ensure Vader's defeat. However, Sheev failed to realize that his weakness was no ground, and should have covered that useless gaping pit which does nothing. A common misconception is the idea of a 'prostrate position' version of the high ground, wherein Obi-Wan lies flat on his back, giving him tactical superiority from his point of view. However, this strategy is futile, as for the high ground to come into effect, there must be a differential between parties on both the x-axis and y-axis to a moderately significant variation from both absolutes (Angles only a Sith would deal in). For Obi-Wan's high ground powers to be in full effect, he must stand between 15 and 75 degrees (π/12 to 5π/12 radians) diagonal from his opponent(s) on any quadrant of the area circle; this has been dubbed the Trigonometric Perspective Diagram. The total effect for conventional high ground advantage can be calculated via the MetaComm Equation, or f(x) = lim 0→x π/12 | 7π/12 5π/12 | 11π/12 Ʃ(x) (2tan(x) / 3sin(x) + (log10Δ)) * cΦ Δ = distance on hypotenuse (meters) Φ = Surrounding Force [c (variable) * β (Earth Gravity) * (pressure (psi)/2.2)] 'x' refers to the angle of contact between the two parties on, with advantage being based purely on position on the Y-axis, as the vast majority of force users base their perception on elevation rather than spacial relativity. The power of gravitational force has great effect on the high ground; too weak, and the high ground holds no traction; too strong and the ground becomes the real enemy. Experimentation has proven that the high ground typically holds significant value between .8 and 1.4 β (Earth Gravities) with maximum impact standing roughly equal to 1.05. Pressure is equally important, as it is a surrounding force attached to gravity (the high ground has famously low impact in aquatic environments). Pressure(λ) is measured in pounds per square inch (psi), to be used as a gravity multiplier (or division if pressure is subatmospheric; Φ (Surrounding Force) is a variable defined as β * 2.2λ , with no metric value assigned due to its singular application in the MetaComm equations. In situations regarding Obi-Wan and his relativistic point of view, you must substitute the Quadrilateral MetaComm Equation (the Jedi Master function), f(x) = lim 0→x minmaxƩ (2tan(x) / 3sin(x) ) * (1.2)cΦ [min = (|cos(x)| = 1) | (|sin(x)| = 1) + π/12 ), max = (|cos(x)| = 1) | (|sin(x)| = 1) + 5π/12 ]. The viable Φ field is expanded, as Obi-Wan has taken advantage of the high ground in so many different environments that he simply uses it more efficiently, and the min/max values apply due to his multidimensional point of view, evidenced by the Trigonometric Perspective Diagram. Additionally, the distance factor does not affect Obi-Wan, as spacetime can be perseptively compressed, giving him the ideal Δ value from his point of reference. In conclusion, Obi-Wan abuses spatial relativity and Taoist doctrine in order to always invoke his high-ground powers. To properly analyze the strategic genius of Kenobi, one must hold advanced knowledge in Philosophy, Mathematics, and Calculus-based Physics, and be able to integrate these topics together.
