Value and worth, are they the same thing?

So many people falsely believe that these two terms are synonymous when a reasonable  assessment would reveal otherwise.

The products  worth is simple to determine using demand for the product as a gage.

You keep raising the price until the customer base stops demanding it.

The product is worth what ever you can sell it for.  (no more and no less)

I was born into this world naked and broke with only natural currency to spend in order to obtain my sustenance.

That would be "My skills services and time of life"  as traded for the fiat currency of a certain nation state.

I have a nationality given by birth in that nation state.

How many times have you heard someone say: "If only they would pay me what I am worth"

Sorry but if you are accepting pay for your skills services and time of life, then you are determining you own worth.

You are worth only what you are willing to sell yourself for. Everyone is getting what they are worth.

Your value has nothing to do with your worth because value is perceived by your customers.

Should your customers find great value in the product you offer,  then you may determine it to be worth more and raise the price.

You may determine your worth but your value is determined by those you serve.

Your self assessment concerning your worth is never gonna play into my decision as an employer when setting your pay rate.

Your performance is what I am paying for, not your self assessment.

In short you may determine what you are worth, but you must allow others to determine how valuable you are.

Now a quick and accurate self assessment of my own worth.

As a human being I am worthless to myself for I have worked for nothing up until now.  (nothing to show) (perpetually impoverished)

If those administratively regulating my finances at the federal level were determined to reduce me to absolute despotism, they have succeeded.

I have taken a vow of poverty and chosen to work for god  exclusively.

Everything in my possession belongs to him.

My value is to be determined by god.

I wish to see if he is able to obtain more for my skills services and time of life   than I was able to secure myself.

I did set the bar very low. Nothing can disappoint me now.

I sold my remaining skills services and time of life back to my creator in heaven.

He is personally in charge of all my financial negotiations.

I have  good faith reason to believe my value will far outweigh my worth when all is calculated.

Thanks to all you men here for reading and for the comments.

I find great value in your company.

L&R to all

 

I was bound to be misunderstood, and I laugh at the idiots who misunderstand me! Kind mockery toward the well-intentioned and unfettered cruelty toward all would-be prison guards of my creative possibilities. In this way I learn to revel as much in misunderstanding as in understanding and take pleasure in worthy opponents. Making language fluid, flowing like a river, yet precise and pointed as a dirk, contradicts the socialistic purpose of language and makes for a wonderful verbal dance—a linguistic martial art with constant parries that hone the weapon that is the two edged sword of my mouth.

Great post that is very timely in many regards.  Politicians, Industry, society all contine to believe that their value to the overall benefit one receives should be directly tied to a value of worth.

Excellent post. I think the confusion stems from the fact that in order to have worth something must have value; but not everything of value (or valued) has worth. There are plenty of unworthy things which people value--but that value doesn't make them any less unworthy. 

Here is an example: Recall Andres Serrano's Piss Christ photograph which was displayed in art galleries well it is "valued" in a lot of dollars but does it have worth? No of course not. IT might be valued at $100,000 but it is worthless. Compare to your child's crayon drawing of you that one might place on the fridg. It is probably valuable for less than a buck but its worth is beyond any price.

Everything could have value, but I don't  have enough time of life to find the individual person who is willing to pay for every particular product.

myth busters proved you can in fact polish a turd, but I have not located a collector as of yet  so I am still flushing mine. 

If you can get  me the right price I will start rubbing my shit to a shiny gloss.

If humor has value and you find me funny, just beer me.

Henry David Thoreau  said The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it. 

I am expressing the same fundamental idea.

I believe a personal relationship with my father in heaven is worth trading my remaining time of life for. 

I take my belief literally.  Without my creator I would be nothing.

Both my mother and sister need my help and care.  I believe the bible says strengthen those close to death.
