This paper relates three different kinds of values, from the perspective of the author, as part of the decision-making process. The author points out his or her own values. The paper discusses what a decision is, cognitive dissonance, methods of coping with cognitive dissonance and some reasons that change may occur to a person's values.

From the Paper:

"There is a saying: "no matter where you go, there you are." Stripped to its most basic meaning, it tells us that no matter how we try to escape them, we carry our belief system, our knowledge base, and our values with us, inside. We base our actions on all of those things, every day of our lives. Is it possible to ignore these values in the decision-making process? Is it possible to make changes to these values, once they have been developed? Every day, I wake up, have breakfast and prepare for the day. I shower and dress appropriately for the tasks that await me. Perhaps I prepare my books for school, or make certain that my homework or housework is done. Perhaps I see my friends or go to a movie. Maybe I just indulge in a quiet day off in which I go nowhere and talk to no one."
