SSVS Scale

Introduction

This is a Short version of the Schwartz Values Scale (SVS) developed by Lindeman & Verkasalo (Journal of Personality Assessment, 2005).

SSVS scale items

Rate the importance of the following values as a life-guiding principle for you
Use the following scale for rating each value using scale
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
In which:
0= opposed to my principles
1= not important
4= important
8= of supreme importance
1. POWER (social power, authority, wealth)
2. ACHIEVEMENT (success, capability, ambition, influence on people and events)
3. HEDONISM (gratification of desires, enjoyment in life, self-indulgence)
4. STIMULATION (daring, a varied and challenging life, an exciting life)
5. SELF-DIRECTION (creativity, freedom, curiosity, independence, choosing one's own goals)
6. UNIVERSALISM (broad-mindedness, beauty of nature and arts, social justice, a world at peace, equality, wisdom, unity with nature, environmental protection)
7. BENEVOLENCE (helpfulness, honesty, forgiveness, loyalty, responsibility)
8. TRADITION (respect for tradition, humbleness, accepting one's portion in life, devotion, modesty)
9. CONFORMITY (obedience, honoring parents and elders, self-discipline, politeness)
10. SECURITY (national security, family security, social order, cleanliness, reciprocation of favors)

SPSS Syntax

Please note that this syntax assumes a scale of 1 to 9 (1 - opposed, 9 - supreme importance) :

COUNT C1=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(1).
COUNT C2=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(2).
COUNT C3=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(3).
COUNT C4=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(4).
COUNT C5=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(5).
COUNT C6=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(6).
COUNT C7=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(7).
COUNT C8=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(8).
COUNT C9=SSVS_1 to SSVS_10(9).
do IF (C1 GE 5 OR C2 GE 8 OR C3 GE 8 OR C4 GE 8
        OR C5 GE 8 OR C6 GE 8 OR C7 GE 8 OR C8 GE 8 or c9 ge 8).
compute i=1 .
else .
compute i=2.
end if.
exe.
freq var=i.

USE ALL.
COMPUTE filter_$=(i=2).
VARIABLE LABELS filter_$ 'i=2 (FILTER)'.
VALUE LABELS filter_$ 0 'Not Selected' 1 'Selected'.
FORMATS filter_$ (f1.0).
FILTER BY filter_$.
EXECUTE.

* Self-enhancement: average of Power, Achievement, & Hedonism.
* Openness to Change: average of Stimulation & Self-direction.
* Self-transcendence: average of Universalism & Benevolence.
* Conservatism: average of Conformity, Tradition, & Security.
compute selfenh=mean(SSVS_1, SSVS_2, SSVS_3).
compute openness=mean(SSVS_4, SSVS_5).
compute selftran=mean(SSVS_6, SSVS_7).
compute conserv=mean(SSVS_8,SSVS_9, SSVS_10).
compute MRAT=mean(SSVS_1 to SSVS_10).
exec.

DO REPEAT  s = ssvs_1 TO ssvs_10 /
  t = t1 TO t10    .
COMPUTE t = (s - mrat).
END REPEAT.
