Value Hierarchy


Everything is on a value hierarchy.

There are variations between the value systems of different people and different cultures.

Some things have a greater consensus regarding their value, others have less consensus.


Our decisions are based on these values.

By choosing to read this, you are valuing it over other sources of information.

You care more about some of your possessions than others as you value them differently.


The way we process the world is also based on these values.

When deciding whether to agree with someone, you examine their argument against your values.

When you evaluate someone’s way of living, you do the same.
