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 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.
What are Attitudes?
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.”
What are Behaviors?
Behaviors are the actions people take, or don’t take, in their daily lives. Attitudes influence behaviors, and it can be challenging to change behavior without first addressing underlying attitudes and values. Judgments about a behavior often stem from a lack of understanding or awareness of the values and attitudes that inform it.
As individuals develop greater self-awareness of their values and attitudes, they can make more deliberate choices about their behaviors and actions. By understanding the interplay between values, attitudes, and behaviors, individuals can develop a more holistic understanding of themselves and others, leading to more meaningful and fulfilling relationships and experiences.
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.
