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.
How does Value8 Work?
Value8 features a list of 50 prevalent values. Users can sift through this list to identify their top or core values by swiping right or left. Upon selecting 2 or more values, Value8 provides feedback on potential clashes or harmonies between the chosen values. Based on their selections, the app then categorizes users into specific archetypes, offering deeper insights into their personality traits.
Users have the option to submit personal value conflicts for review, which, once assessed, are shared with the broader app community.
The Pro version of Value8 introduces a partnership feature. With this upgrade, users can view their partner's values, their corresponding archetypes, and any conflicts or synergies that arise within the relationship. This Pro version requires a one-time purchase. Additionally, users can submit any conflicts with their partners for review, and these, too, are shared with the app's community.
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.
Values are fundamental beliefs or principles that guide a person's attitudes and behaviors. They are shaped during childhood and can include qualities such as security, integrity, and community. Unlike concepts, values are not tied to specific actions or outcomes. While they can be prioritized differently based on life experiences, they tend to remain relatively stable over time.
Attitudes, on the other hand, are the meanings that individuals assign to their values. Attitudes can change more frequently than values as people adapt to life's changes. For example, if safety is a value, an attitude toward safety might be, "Safety is important because it reduces my chances of being hurt or injured."
Behaviors encompass the daily actions people choose to take or avoid. Attitudes deeply influence these behaviors, and changing a behavior often requires addressing the underlying attitudes and values first. Many judgments about a particular behavior arise from a lack of understanding or awareness of the values and attitudes behind it.
By cultivating a deeper self-awareness of their values and attitudes, individuals can make more intentional decisions about their actions. Recognizing the connection between values, attitudes, and behaviors allows for a comprehensive understanding of oneself and others. This insight paves the way for richer, more fulfilling relationships and experiences.
