Values are what the individual acts to gain and/or keep (Rand, 1964). They are what the individual considers good or beneficial. Values can range in content from basic moral values (right and wrong) to personal preferences in ice cream flavor. While needs are inborn, values are acquired through experience and though. While needs are the same for everyone, people differ greatly in what they value. The ultimate biological function of values is to guide action towards need fulfillment. People may make errors in choosing their values so that the choices a person makes may actually lead to self-destruction rather than to health and happiness.
