  • Attraction vs. Value

    …awyer and her family is overseas, he is extremely valuable. You get the picture ;) In addition, if a man shares similar views of the world, and has similar future ambitions and dreams as she does (i e. They both want to be married by age 32 and have 3 kids…) this is also value. Compatibility equates to value. The perception of value is the conditioned response instilled in us by society and our upbringing. The average guy on the street in…

    Believe In Your Value

    …t this is an insecure way of thinking. What is the alternative to being obsessed with building value? ASSUME THAT YOU HAVE VALUE. Ultimately, most of this game is inner game. (Assuming that a guy is socially normal and can carry a decent conversation.!!) At least 80% of this game is inner-game, in my estimation. Sure, the beginner can benefit from some basic structure, approach ideas, how to conduct himself, and how to develop his calibration…

    Value And Active Disinterest

    …s or excitement levels, not being responsive to your presence, etc) Value is established by: -OUTER APPEARANCE (genetics, grooming, and clothing subcommunications) -SOCIAL PROOF (both your entourage, the level to which the surrounding women are appearing to be unlocked to you (which is made obvious by things they subcommunicate as you are in the area, and girls pickup on this), and the level to which people treat you (ie: are they breaking…

In Sperm Wars, Robin Baker details how women are genetically wired to mate with the most physically dominant male for the best genes (physical looks), but marry or stay long term with a male that has the most resources and is emotional stable to help her raise her children. Usage: A SHB’s S&R value is very high in our society today. Related Terms: Passive Value, High…

    Social Value

    …sexual experiences. And in the case of the woman, she wants to create the perception that she is hard to get and that she is the only one who could make the man feel strongly validated. This is a play off of the innate S&R value of men (higher survival, lower replication) and women (lower survival, higher replication). While women today have rights and are able to take care of themselves, our evolutionary tribal brains are still wired to…

    Demonstrations vs Verbalisations

    …high value takes many forms. Storytelling, cold reads, humor, actual “demonstrations” like having a girl watching while you “perform” in some way, fucking the shit out of her, etc. Demonstrating Higher value is ALWAYS good. If done confidently and congruently, it cannot hurt you. One SPECIFIC type of DHV is to VERBALIZE lower value. Some people call this “DLV”. This is a misnomer. You are not actually…

    Passive Value

    …traits are displayed with ease and unconsciously to new people we meet, and are inherently long term and difficult to change in the short term time span. Full Definition: A PUA’s passive value determines the margin of error allowed to him based on the difference of the perceived value between the HB and him. Passive Value applies to women as well. Usually, the hotter a girl is, the more passive value she has, and her margin of error when…
