meaning of the verb “model” in context

Here it goes:

Person 1 - How can I get my partner to respect me?

Person 2 - Model what that looks like by respecting yourself.

I suspect it might mean copy something, but then, as the Oxford Dictionary says, it should be copy oneself on.

Model X as a verb is like a lot of other "verb-ified" nouns, it means make a model of X.

If X is not a physical thing, means "show how it's done properly by doing it", or "leading by example."; synonymous somewhat with demonstrate.

There the transitive verb model would mean "to exemplify, to show by action or demeanor".
