Value8 is a mobile application used by clinicians and individuals to create a deeper understanding of one’s values. When we observe with mindfulness the things that we value, we create better perspectives about our attitudes and behaviors.
Value8 is available for Apple iOS and Google Android devices.
What are Values?
Values are the fundamental building blocks of an individual’s attitudes. We form most of our values in our childhood. Security, Integrity, Honesty, Community are examples of a value. Values are not concepts. They are not “if I do this then this will happen” thinking. Values are not behaviors or things we “do”. Values do not often change, but we prioritize them differently from our life experiences.
What are Attitudes?
Attitudes are the meaning that we give to our values. For example, if safety is a value, an attitude maybe something like “safety is important because it reduces my chances of being hurt or injured”. Attitudes change more frequently as we adapt to the changes in life.
What are Behaviors?
Behaviors are things we “do” (or don’t do). Our attitudes influence our behaviors. It can be difficult to create mindfulness regarding our behavior without the complete picture of the building blocks (attitudes and values) that underpin behaviors. Most judgments occur when behavior is the focus.
How does Value8 Work?
Value8 contains 50 common values. Application users can select from the list their top (or core) values by swiping right or left from values in the list. Once a user has selected 2 or more values, Value8 will include feedback about each combination of how values can conflict or create helpful synergies. Value8 will assign the user an archetype based on their value selections with further insight into their personality. Users can submit their individual value conflicts for review and are published back to the community in the app.
The Pro version of Value8 unlocks the ability to connect to a partner. Users can see their partner’s values, archetype, and conflicts, and synergies in the partnership. The Value8 Pro upgrade is a one-time purchase. Users can submit their partner conflicts for review and are published back to the community in the app.
Value8 is a new application (Jan. 2022). If you have problems, please submit your concern using this website. Value8 will be updated often as the application is fine-tuned.
