Research Problem: To determine the correlation between the Values for Working Test and the Personal Orientation Inventory.
Method: Both instruments were administered to the same group of 232 employed individuals. Stepwise multiple linear regression with analysis of variance was the statistical procedure employed.
Results: The resulting correlations were high enough to determine directionality and order of selection.
Conclusion: The data indicates much support for Clare Graves’ theory of value systems. Additional research is needed to further validate the Values for Working Test.
