Have people obsess over you to increase your SMV

Summary: Up to this point, we lacked the means to express SMV numerically. Now, I think I found a way. The value of your SMV is how many people obsess over you divided by how many people you obsess over.

Body: If we take the stereotype of "nerd virgin beta loser living in mom's basement", we can see that the reason why he's like that is is that he doesn't have anyone obsess over him i.e. he's isn't putting himself out there; when he does meet someone, he can't keep his cool; he messes up every conversation by being too needy etc.

Meanwhile, he's jerking off to every cute girl whose picture he can find online. I think we can agree this makes him a miserable man with rock bottom SMV.

A lot of people regularly ask "How do I increase my SMV?" and the answers invariably go along the lines of "hit the gym, dress well, be assertive" sort of thing. But what if SMV doesn't have anything to do with how you look or how much money you make?

Let's take for example Chad de Thundercoque. Chad comes from old money, with his father having made a fortune in clip-on ties, and is the kind of guy everyone obsesses over (girls want to be with him and guys want to be like him) while he doesn't give a shit about anyone.

What would happen with Chad's SMV if he was placed in the nerd's life circumstances? Would he retain it or would it tank? The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that SMV has absolutely nothing to do with where you live, what you wear or even how you look - it's all about having the uncanny ability to make people obsess over you.

I don't particularly enjoy using stereotypes since they are laughably simplistic and any theory that uses them becomes laughably simplistic itself. However, in this case I've contrasted the two most extreme examples that are meant to underline my theory, which is that high SMV is, in its entirety, being fawned over while not paying attention to anyone. In reality, there is a fine granulation that comprises the entirety of our immediate societal environment, the analysis of which I leave up to you.

The most important thing is that plugged-in people aren't aware of their SMV at all. They don't know what SMV is, they don't want to hear about it and they most certainly won't adjust their mindset to increase it. Strangely enough, my theory applies to haters as well - the more people hate you, the greater your SMV, which would explain why some people seem to intentionally cause drama.

A public example of an industry that manufactures SMV is movie/music industry. They've got it down to a science how to make us obsess over what are actually just normal people. Then, they just churn out identical "entertainers" and laugh all the way to the bank. That's neither good nor bad, it just is, but we can learn from it and apply the principles to our own lives.

Conclusion: Don't give a shit about anyone and let people obsess over you and you'll have incredible SMV.

The value of your SMV is how many people obsess over you divided by how many people you obsess over.

This works great...until you leave high school.

The most important letter in the abbreviation is the last one--value. How much value to you provide people? What does this value consist of? Answer those two questions and you'll be well on your way to understanding and implementing the ideas found here.

Said it perfectly. OP should study basic Econ . That will defn make you understand smv and the overall smp so much more

I am a bastard and don't give a shit about anyone (close relatives do not count), so my SMV tends to infinity.

[–]CrodudeClassic4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Lemma 2.1 SMV - The rational male is assumed to give a shit about himself therefore as the male gives less and less shits the typical calculated SMV = ShitsAbout/ShitsGiven --> ShitsAbout

EDIT: In theory ShitsAbout_max =~ 7.125 billion, therefore at this point in human history SMV_max <= 7.125 billion. No infinity SMV for you, friend.

I rest Crodude's case. Wrecked by math - you don't see that every day.

yo - trying to get a good contact on tests for crispr oligos.. we both edit genes (as well as this post)... sounds like you're successfully genetic editing via SMV

The one thing you do not mention is Chad's looks. Chad can go to a party and get attention from girls instantly without game. Hell Chad can go to the grocery store and girls will strike up conversations with him. They will initiate text messages with him and message him first on Tinder and Okcupid so Chad doesn't even have to leave the house. That's the difference there, it's got nothing to do with confidence or game. it's looks. It's easy to talk to people when they are open to conversations with you. A girl isn't going to be open to conversation with a basement dwelling greasy haired nerd running tight game. She'll immediately open up to Chad's simple, "hello, I'm Chad."

Great point, you can make a follow-up to my post and expound on that further.

"Chad has good game. Be like Chad."

Someone willing to make that in a kid styled comic?

I'll be on my way posting "Hitler did nothing wrong" posters.

Just joking, great article lad. Always fun to read the short yet powerful ones.

a lot of people hate my guts, i must be a rock star.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
