recognizing your values
Recognizing Your Values

Values are the thoughts, ideas, and actions that are important to you.

  • Something has instrumental value if it is important for acquiring something else.
  • Something has intrinsic value if it is important in and

of itself.

  • Moral values help you tell right from wrong.
  • Work-related values refer to how you like to work and the results that you produce.
  • Values can change as you grow.
  • Not everyone values the same things.
understanding standards and ethics
Understanding Standardsand Ethics

Standards are guidelines for whether or not something meets expectations. Ethics are a set of beliefs about what is right and what is wrong.

  • Standards are used to measure performance.
  • One way to avoid conflict is to have flexible standards that you can adapt to different situations.
  • Your values and standards are also influenced by your ethics.
    • Some ethics are established by society.
    • Some ethics are established by groups of people, such as the members of certain professions.
    • Some ethics are personal and usually measure virtues such as honesty, compassion, and loyalty.
identifying your strengths and interests
Identifying Your Strengthsand Interests

Your strengths are your positive qualities and skills.

  • Your personal qualities are the characteristics and traits that make you unique.
  • A skill is an ability or talent—something you do well.
  • To recognize your own strengths, you must be very honest about what you do well, and what you do not.
  • Strengths also include accomplishments, which are things you have achieved at home, in school, or in the community.
  • Interests are subjects or activities that attract your attention and that you enjoy doing or learning about.
recognizing character qualities
RecognizingCharacter Qualities

Your character is the personal qualities or traits that make you unique.

  • You show your character qualities by the way you act and the things you say.
  • Your character traits influence the way other people see you and the way you see yourself.
  • You develop character qualities over time as you come to understand what is important to you.
  • You can also emulate—or copy in a respectful manner the character of someone you admire.
  • The more you understand about yourself, the easier it is to identify all of your traits.
having a positive attitude
Having a Positive Attitude

One way to tell a positive character trait from a negative character trait is to ask yourself whether you would like that trait in someone else.

Positive character qualities—or virtues—make you feel good about yourself and contribute to your well-being.

Attitude is the way you think, feel, or behave, particularly when you are with other people.

When you have a positive attitude, people want to be around you.

Most employers want to hire people who have a positive attitude. You can develop a positive attitude by developing positive character traits.
