As part of my individual values I include family security, since for me my family is one Of my main priorities in life. I believe that these three values that I mentioned are essential in my life and these three values are what keep me feeling well and balanced. Interpersonal My top three terminal values are: “self-respect’, “mature love” and “an exciting life”. My top three instrumental values on an interpersonal level are: “honest”, “loving” and “imaginative”.
When I think of interpersonal values, I automatically think of how others relate and perceive me.For my interpersonal priorities I chose “self-respect” first as I believe that this is a key actor in feeling well in relation with others as well as in how others see me. I think self-respect is the foundation for all interpersonal relations in order for me to feel whole.
Also chose “mature love” as my top priority list for interpersonal values because for me it is important to feel accepted and to have a sense of belonging with one person in order to feel stable and secure. Also chose “an exciting life” as part of my interpersonal values since it is something that I feel I need to have in my life in order to keep with life demands.For me believe having a stimulating active life is something that greatly needs to be integrated in order to enjoy life and be able to relate better with others, as having an active life gives me a sense of reward and personal gratification. I strongly believe that have to be “honest” with myself and with others in order to ultimately obtain self-respect, both at a personal level as well as an interpersonal level.
I also chose “loving’ as one of my instrumental values as I believe to feel love and to love somebody is an excellent way to not only relate to someone else but also to grow in a arsenal level and also as a society.Another instrumental value that I chose is “imaginative”; I think that in order to have good interpersonal skills or to be at a good interpersonal level creativity strongly plays a part in it. I strongly believe that creativity and the opportunity to sometimes be daring provides a sense Of excitement which in many ways believe is a strong foundation for both personal as well as interpersonal relationships. Organizational For my organizational values my top three terminal values were: “a sense of accomplishment’, “a world at peace” and ‘freedom”.
My top three instrumental values for dissection were “capable”, “helpful” and “independent”. In an organizational level, it is very important for me to establish goals and therefore to have a sense of accomplishment is simply something that traces a path for me to achieve my goals. Think to enjoy work for me is extremely important to have a sense of accomplishment, as without it you will feel meaningless. Think a sense of accomplishment goes hand-in- hand with feeling capable and this is something that strongly strive for.At an organizational level I believe that it is also important to feel at peace with what I do, as for me is very important to find comfort in what I do. Many times I find comfort in helping others and so this is why I picked the instrumental value “helpful”. Another important value for me is to be able to have freedom in what I do. I definitely think that at an organizational level I’d need to feel independent.
Societal For this section I picked “equality’, “national security’ and “a comfortable life” to be my three top terminal values.I chose “equality” for my first one as this is something that unites people as a whole, when everyone feels they are at the same level. In this section I also picked “helpful” as my number one instrumental value. I think equality means equal opportunity for all and having everyone working for the welfare of others are really the basics of a good societal foundation. Also chose “national security’ because as a society believe that we need to have a sense of protection in order to function properly. For this my instrumental value that I chose is “forgiving”.
I also chose A comfortable life” as another top terminal value because in a society it is important for everybody to feel that they have a prosperous life in order to feel valued and recognized. “Self-controlled” was my third choice for instrumental values as he can be easily paired up with the last terminal value. This is because believe that it is important to be restrained and to be disciplined in order to obtain a desire outcome, like for example a prosperous life. As a society a think we need to think of ourselves but also of others in order to build a stronger unity.
