Quick Definition: The intuitive judgment of a person’s S&R value based on a first impression.
Whether or not we consider ourselves judgmental, most people’s minds unconsciously associate a value to any new person that enters their reality based on a first impression. Some of the queues that convey value are subtle, and the observance of these by the perceiver is also unconscious.
Perceived value can be controlled by mastering a strong inner and outer game that has many DHVs and developing a sense of awareness of one’s presence. Perceived value is not always an accurate representation of the real value of a person. For example, a girl may be having a bad day, or is embarrassed about a pimple, and thus appear with a low perceived value when forced to go out to the bar with her friends, when in fact she could very well be a high value person in her normal life.
