Hypothesis Conclusion SurveY of values The subjects Idea-centered Person-centered Fairly stable Fairly changeable Views are typical of others male female 11-16
Rank 1-16 achievement comfort contribution excellence fulfillment growth knowledge love peace power relationships security self-acceptance status truth wealth 11-16 year olds will rank love, relationships, and acceptance higher than 17-19 year olds. 17-19 year olds will rank wealth and knowledge higher. girls will rank security and comfort higher than boys. boys will rank power and excellence higher than girls 17-19 Results Our conclusion is that there is no correlation between age and values, and that there are no correlations between gender and values. Other Studies Sandra Graham and April Taylor's
study on values of ethnic minrities did
find a connection bewteen the values of
adolescents and gender. Females valued other
females who had high achievement. Males vauled
other males with low achievement. Limitations Future Studies asked only people we knew didn't ask enough people We found there was no correlation between adolescents who were fairly stable vs. fairly changeable. Based on our results we found there to be no correlation between adolescents who considered themselves person-centered vs. idea-centered. too many values to place in order subjects did'nt know the difference in idea or person centered several subjects claimed their views are not typical What do you think effects the values of adolescents? How could you test this hypothesis? Other Studies "Personal Values as a Mediator Between Parent and Peer Expectations and Adolescent Behaviors" This article explored and examined the role of adolescents' personal values and how it related with maternal and peer expectations and self expectations of prosocial and antisocial behaviors. Tested values as seen my peers and the individuals to determine prosocial and antisocial behaviors between guys and girls. Results:
Personal values mediated the relation between expectations and prosocial behaviors.
Preventing antisocial behaviors, parental monitoring and consistant disciple were the important factors. For 17-19 year olds their top picks
varied. Two subjects chose, as their top pick,
achievement, but others choose
knowledge, security, contribution, relationships, power, or fulfillment. For their
bottom pick two choose self-acceptance
and power. The others choose status, security, contribution, and
wealth. For 11-16 year olds there was not a significant
distinction. As their top pick two subjects choose love, but others
chose knowledge, peace, growth, acceptance, security, power, and contribution. As their bottom pick two chose
status and two choose power. The other ones chose security, wealth, peace, growth, and relationships.
As for males verses females, their was not a significant
distinction. Males in general choose knowledge as their top pick (3 adolescents chose this as their number 1).
For their bottom choice this was a tie between status and power (3 people each choose status and power as their last value).
The female's top pick was love (3) and their bottom pick was status (2). other studies Laura M. Padilla-Walker, and gustavo Carlo did an article named Personal Values as a Mediator Between parent and peer expectations and adolescent behaviors. Basically the article states that they did testingto see what influences parents and peers had on their behaviors and values. Aolescents were asked several questions and then several of the same questions just reworded and were told not to lie even if it hurt them. They noticed that they acted differently than what their answers to the questions were when they were around friends or family. Basically this states that when around family they have different values than when they are with their friends.
