Understanding Values and Belief Systems

What are they and how are they created?

If I was to ask you, what do you value? You might respond with something like my job, my husband/wife/mate, my car and so on. Let’s for a moment think of values as something that is not a material thing but more so an intrinsic thing. An intrinsic value is something that has worth to us, but we can’t necessarily quantify that in terms of material items or even numbers.

Now when we talk about values, words might come to mind like freedom, trust, respect, love, compassion and so on. You can easily see the difference, but noting that these things do really mean something to us. As all things go, each person will not only have different values, they will have a different ordering or priority of what’s important. Taking one more step beyond that and probably the most important difference - is what that value actually means or translates to in real life.

For instance, one woman’s version of love might include getting flowers on a regular basis, while another doesn’t like flowers receiving flowers and thinks it’s a bribe or sorts. For the first woman getting flowers from her husband shows to her, in her value system, that he loves her. If the second woman was to receive flowers, it could be suspect or even painful.

This is a simple example, but I think you get the picture. In any given value, for any given person there will be different reason on how that values translates to their real world situation. These reasons or guidelines behind how a given value was formed are often referred to as rules. “The rules”, in each woman’s case were different thereby creating a different version of the same/similar value.

Look for the upcoming blog on more insight into Rules.
