In this post, we’ll unpack all you need to know about Demonstrating Higher Value, defining exactly what it is, why it’s important, how to leverage it and more.
What Is Demonstrating Higher Value?
Demonstrating Higher Value (DHV) refers to effectively communicating one’s worth in a given context by intentionally projecting specific characteristics in order to positively influence how others perceive you.
From an evolutionary perspective, DHV refers to projecting characteristics that signal you have a higher ability to survive and reproduce.
The Importance Of Demonstrating Higher Value
Demonstrating Higher Value is important because it allows you to enhance your status in any given context — both personal and professional settings.
DHV also enhances one’s ability to command more trust, respect and influence, all of which are key drivers to boosting confidence and self-esteem.
How To Demonstrate Higher Value
There are two ways to Demonstrate Higher Value; verbal and non-verbal.
Verbal communication involves telling people about how good your skills are. Non-verbal communication involves showing people how good your skills are. Since it’s exponentially harder to walk the walk than talk the talk, one should always focus on signalling their value non-verbally.
In short, show don’t tell.
Always demonstrate. Never explicate.
What Characteristics Should You Signal?
When Demonstrating Higher Value, you must identify the characteristics relevant to the given context that are important to project. Then you must develop and then demonstrate them.
For example, in romantic settings, men should focus on projecting characteristics associated with being a High Value Man. The three primary characteristics that define a High Value Man are physique, recourses and status. Others include confidence, emotional intelligence, leadership and ambition.
