Rokeach Value Survey
On the following two pages are two lists of values, each in alphabetical order. Each value is
accompanied by a short description and a blank space. Your goal is to rank each value in its
order of importance to you for each of the two lists. Study each list and think of how much each
value may act as a guiding principle in your life.
To begin, select the value that is of most importance to you. Write the number 1 in the blank
space next to that value. Next, choose the value is of second in importance to you and write the
number 2 in the blank next to it. Work your way through the list until you have ranked all 18
values on this page. The value that is of least importance to you should appear in Box 18.
When you have finished ranking all 18 values, turn the page and rank the next 18 values in the
same way. Please do each page separately.
When ranking, take your time and think carefully. Feel free to go back and change your order
should you have second thoughts about any of your answers. When you have completed the
ranking of both sets of values, the result should represent an accurate picture of how you really
feel about what’s important in your life.
