Abstract: The 36 stratagems were accepted to evolve from hundreds of years of ancient Chinese warfare among warlords, kings, aristocrats fighting for power, for land, or for sovereign kingdom, yet still very widely recognized to be useful in all areas including policy making, changing healthy life styles, persuasive negotiations etc. There are some 6 different fields of strategies for different state of the situation, starting when one is superior, gaining ground to losing, each bearing 6 individual strategies each. It is now widely accepted that some war strategies could be applied in business world, behavioral science and thus taken another leap trying to better apply in other areas such as geopolitical affairs, behavioral change, public policy etc. With an inspiration of analyzing modern issues with more niche and subtle solutions, 36 stratagems of Chinese were studied in comparison with trickery plans, mind game theories, or paradoxes that will counteract losing odds to winning chips. With strong belief in the possibility to co-relate the Chinese’s ancient strategies applied in warfare with tactical strategies in modern world, it was explored to formulate these stratagems such that the stratagems can be further utilized in modern application fields, including politics, economics, trading or anywhere one names it with win or loss involves or even averse loss and maintain healthy win.
