Transcript of Filipino Values

What are Values? Values are those things we regard as having ultimate importance, significance, or worth.
More abstractly, the term often refers to a set of principles, standards, or beliefs concerning these things of ultimate importance. Filipino Values Filipino Values Pakikipagkapwa-Tao
(Regard for others) Filipinos are open to others and feel one with others.
Filipinos are very sensitive to the quality of interpersonal relationships Family Orientedness One’s family is the source of personal identity, the source of emotional and material support and one’s main commitment and responsibility. Joy and Humor Filipinos have a cheerful and fun-loving approach to life and its ups and downs. Flexibility, Adaptability and Creativity  Filipinos have a great capacity to adjust and to adapt to circumstances and the surrounding environment, both physical and social. Hard Work and Industry Filipinos have the capacity for hard work, given proper conditions.

The desire to raise one's standard of living and to acquire the basic essentials of a better life for one's family, makes the Filipino work very hard. Faith and Religiosity Filipinos as Catholics have a deep faith and respect to God.

Filipinos live very intimately with religion; this is tangible -- a part of everyday life.
It is one of the positive character traits of the Filipinos because it is the most effective system for establishing morality and social order. Ability to Survive Filipinos have an ability to survive which is manifested in our capacity for endurance despite difficult times, and in our ability to get by on so little. Weaknesses of the Filipino Character Extreme Personalism Filipinos view the world in terms of personal relationships and the extent to which one is able to personally relate
things and people
determines the
recognition of their
existence and the
value given to them. Extreme Family Centeredness Excessive concern for the family creates an in-group to which the Filipino is fiercely loyal to the detriment of concern for the larger community or for the common good. Lack of Discipline The Filipino’s lack of discipline encompasses several related characteristics. Passivity and Lack of Initiative One waits to be told what has to be done. Being dependent on others. Colonial Mentality Two dimensions: Lack of Patriotism or Active Awareness Actual preference for things foreign Kanya-Kanya Syndrome
(Self-serving attitude) Filipinos have a selfish, self-serving attitude that generates a feeling of envy and competitiveness towards others. This is also evident in personal ambition and drive for power and status Crab mentality also demonstrated by the Filipinos to bring others down. Lack of Self-Analysis and Self Reflection Joking about the most serious matters prevents us from looking deeply into the problems.

Filipinos are satisfied with superficial explanations for, and superficial solutions to, problems. The Many Faces of the Filipino Many of the strong points of the Filipino character are also the source of their weaknesses. Roots of the Filipino Character 1. The Family and Home Environment Main Components of the Home environment: Family Attitudes and Orientation Family relations Childbearing Practices 2.
