You're probably familiar with Mystery's concept of "DHV", which basically every PUA since then has regurgitated. Of course, you can't quite demonstrate high value if you don't have it, and all that bullshitting and lying will not get you very far either.
A user on my forum, Martin, contributed an anecdote that shows why "DHVing" is just nonsensical:
A genuinely high status person doesn't need to tell or show other people he is high status. That's what's so fundamentally wrong about DHVing, for instance.
I will tell you a nice little story as an anecdote. A couple of years ago, I was eating dinner with my parents in a nice hotel in Amman, Jordan. Next to us was a big table with lots of really nicely dressed and apparently rich people. Suddenly a guy walks in wearing jeans and a sweater and all the "high status" dressed people stand up in order to greet him.
We asked one of the waiters who that man was and he replied: "That's the future king."
I wonder what David DeAngelo would have to say to that.
