Sažetak

The aim of this study was to examine the structure of adolescents'
terminal and instrumental values by using modified Rokeach
Value Survey. The investigation was carried out with a sample
of 311 fourteen-year-old adolescents. The subjects rated the importance
of each value on a seven point scale, and they also chose
the first five most important values. Both techniques provided similar
results in terms of ordering the relative importance of value
choi ces. The ratings of 18 terminal and 18 instrumental values were
subjected to factor analyses. Instrumental values reflecting morality/
self-restriction, competence, independence and benevolence
were identified. Terminal values were comprised of hedonism/gratification,
social/security and self-actualization value factors. Based
on the factor solutions, terminal and instrumental values subscales
were constructed and their correlations with measures of intelligence,
school achievement and prosocial behaviour were examined.
The findings suggest that value types differ in the extent to
which they endorse interpersonal or other-directed focus in comparison
to self-directed or achievement-oriented focus.
