You Are Your Top Five YouTubers
Besides your top five friends
Back in the day, you were the average of your top five friends, and that concept can still apply today, but with the rise of technology, much of our influence has been coming from media that we consume, which can range from television to audiobooks.
For a more concentrated approach, let’s focus on YouTube.
You are probably subscribed to dozens of channels or at least follow them without actually subscribing. Those channels probably revolve around one topic or a handful of topics, and you constantly listening to them will likely skew your opinions and teach you concepts in a good or bad way.
That’s why it’s best to surround yourself with good channels just like you would surround yourself with good friends.
Let’s take a look at different combinations of channels, what they may say about you, and how they could influence you.
Combinations of YouTubers
Dan Lok, Grant Cardone, and Tai Lopez
You are interested in larger-than-life entrepreneurs living lavish lifestyles and balancing their content by showing off their wealth and providing practical advice. With the right mindset, you can channel motivation by admiring their possessions without letting them blind you from their valuable advice.
The Ramsey Show and CNBC Make It
Personal finance is an important component of your livelihood. While you can be inspired by mega entrepreneurs as much you want, you need to manage your own personal finances in the end, which you can learn about from Dave Ramsey’s expertise or showcases of people like you on CNBC Make It.
Tom Bilyeu and Lewis Howes
Your sights are not only set at entrepreneurship or self help. You want to be a complete package, and what better way to learn from guests than through the lenses of interviewers who have already walked the walk and talked the talk?
Matt D’Avella, Thomas Frank, Better Ideas, and Captain Sinbad
Self help is the name of the game for you. Working, eating, exercising, and sleeping well are not enough for you. You like going into the nitty gritty of every intricacy to make sure everything you are doing is optimized. You have one guaranteed shot at life, and you want to make it count.
Vsauce and Thoughty2
Curiosity is one of your primary characteristics. Vsauce and Thoughty2 discuss a variety of topics, from boredom to flat earth. As a result, you become a cultured class act.
TheGamerFromMars and wavywebsurf
Similar to the previous batch, these subscriptions indicate your curiosity, but the topics presented by these YouTubers are less educational and more recreational. You find joy in seeing that they uploaded a new video about the origins of Tetris or even Peanut Butter Jelly Time.
Ikenna, Ecolinguist, and Luca Lampariello
You find value in learning languages and how they can develop the brain muscle while enabling contact with others that would otherwise be lost in translation. You want to explore every nook and cranny of linguistics, such as by watching Ecolinguist’s language challenges.
bald and bankrupt, Harald Baldr, Simon Wilson, and Kurt Caz
The most popular travel routes do not interest you. Even if they do, you’re probably more interested in going off the beaten path instead of visiting touristic sights. Your adventurous spirit probably carries over to other aspects of your life, making you a joy to be around.
Drew Binsky and PassportHeavy
While you’re still an exotic traveler, you prefer your travel content to be highly produced almost to a TV quality. You do not mind watching dozens of minutes of content about one destination to know everything about it, from daily expenditures as a tourist to the best unknown excursions.
BigDawsTv, LAHWF, and Cassady Campbell
You’re either too shy to prank people yourself or simply like to see how others do it compared to you. You enjoy a good laugh by watching these world-class pranksters do their thing by breaking barriers with strangers, forming potential friendships, and even forming potential relationships.
CalebCity and LongBeachGriffy
Your idea of a chill afternoon is binge watching short sketches of these talented YouTubers who usually play all of the characters with charmingly low production quality. You cherish the hidden messages their seemingly comical videos pack as well as the African American cultural influences.
A List of the YouTubers
Now that you have a better idea about what certain channels may say about you and how they may affect you, consider decluttering your subscriptions list so that the channels you frequently watch will shape a better you over the next decade.
For your convenience, here is a list of the aforementioned channels according to their type. Consider adding them to your list if you think they would contribute to your cause.
