Demonstration Of Higher Value – DHV

The definition of a demonstration of higher value, more commonly known through the acronym DHV is simply a statement that increases your social status relative to the people around you. Originally introduced by Mystery, Erik Von Markovich, who showed that demonstrating higher value increases your attractiveness. The more you are worth, the more desirable you are. Hhow can you go about demonstrating higher value? Well there are a few ways.

Direct DHV

The first way, most common and probably the least recommended one is to demonstrate higher value by telling people directly about yourself. Saying, “Oh hi, I’m friends with this celebrity” might increase your status if people think you’re being sincere, but usually they’ll just think you’re trying to impress them and might not believe you in the first place. The risk of direct DHV is that people might think you’re lying, in which case it would be DLV (Demonstration of lower value).

Instead, a good way to DHV while still being direct is to bring up accomplishments and facts about yourself in a contextual situation. For example, if people are talking about traveling, you could mention that you had a good time in New Zealand and that you recommend going to see the beaches with penguins. Contextual DHV works much better because it simply sounds as if you had something to share. In this example, people would be envious that you’re well travelled, cultured and have adventurous mind.

If the conversation is headed in a direction where you can’t possibly DHV naturally, then take charge and steer the conversation where you want it to go. Good story telling is one of the best ways of conveying massive DHV while still seeming natural. For instance, you could be telling the story about your adventure in Peru, and while you were there, you can mention that you absorded the language in a few weeks. Using specific stories, you can DHV as much as you want without coming off as a show off, or someone that’s trying to impress people


Indirect DHV

However, the absolute best DHV is indirect demonstration of higher values. Indirect means that people around you accidentaly find out about something good that you’ve done. For instance, if you’re just talking on the phone and one of your friends mentions that he left his phone in your Bentley, then you automatically get massive DHV without even mentioning that you had great car. Now you don’t need to have an expensive car to accomplish this, simply get a friend to mention something good about you while others are around and then act modest. If a friend says you’re great, then it’s much more effective.

Finally, if a stranger says that you’re great because of a certain reason, then that’s the ultimate DHV. For instance, if you walk into a place and everyone says “Hi” to you, then you automatically have massive value in that environment. Anyone watching will notice that you’re important, so make sure you get to know the staff in places that you frequent. If they all greet you when you walk in, it will be much easier for you to pick up a girl that’s there that night.

DHV Spikes

Similar to many attraction techniques, DHV spikes must be used in moderation. If you just start listing accomplishments, or if you’re trying too hard then this will have a negative effect on you. People tend to resent people that are too cool, so use it in moderation. That being said, if you’re telling a story and you throw in a little DHV about yourself, that’s called a DHV spike. You’ll want to play around with these in your interactions in order to build attraction to yourself.

Demonstration of higher value is simply letting other people know that you’re a cool, valuable member of society. It can be accomplished directly, indirectly through stories, jewelry, clothes, through your environment and even simply by being surrounded by people that are valuable. There are hundreds of ways to build DHV, just remember to be humble and subtle about it.

To the above guy… If you want to shorten it cut out the fat woman, it got a bit unbelievable from that point on and maybe a bit disrespectful to women, i dunno. Definitely change the punching part to having your ex-girlfriend see what happened and yell at the kid. Then the mother and your ex first has a verbal fight then a cat fight… and how you broke it up. It doesn’t seem believable to have people swinging punches everywhere, cat fights make more sense.
