Objective 2: Identify your own value system.

Your personal value system may be so intrinsic that it might not be something you can easily describe; however, it is important to be able to quantitatively distinguish your value system. There are three possible measurements of good or bad set of values and ethics, which include Christianity (biblical set of values), society (legal values), and social (friends).

Your values are extremely important as they are a definition for your character and usually a representation of your background. Values change over time through experience and age, but it’s important to stay rooted in the number one value system: the Bible.
