Values, Attitudes and Interests

Values, attitudes and interests affect you as you grow and change and make choices for your future. Your individuality is reflected on the values you esteem, the attitudes you express, and the things that intrigue you.

Values are learned from one’s culture, environment, family, friends and individual experiences. The print media and television also play an important role in the formation of individual groups or familial value patterns. Some values are seen held high by a culture.

Families today are more aware of their needs. This awareness enables them to provide for better facilities than those found in houses in the past. People now desire for a more convenient and comfortable home arrangement, time and energy saving gadgets or equipment, durable and attractive construction materials and good sites. In most instances, these needs result in more expensive housing but at the same time add to a greater value.
