This paper provides three models of hyperintensional property theory. According to the first model, two properties can be identical while being relatively discernible, if the first property bears a non-symmetric relation to the second. I argue that the non-symmetry of identity is crucial for countenancing the relation between value-theoretic properties such as goodness and non-value-theoretic, natural properties. The non-symmetry of identity is argued to be crucial, as well, for defining a relational rather than intrinsic conception of value-theoretic properties; e.g., predicate modifiers such as being a good book, and the property of being good-for a subject. The second model of hyperintensional property theory avails of an operator-based semantics for the logic of ground, according to which hyperintensional ontological dependencies between properties are definable via reflexive bijections. Finally, I present a third model of hyperintensional identity crtieria which is consistent with the operator-based semantics for ground, without having to detour through a relation-based semantics or quantification over arbitrary objects.
