In Schwartz and Bilsky’s (1989, 1991) theory, values are organized in ten motivational types forming a circumplex structure. We modify the theory by proposing values that more clearly consists of opposite pairs. A given value (e.g., security) in a pair is associated with a positive emotion (feel afe) and a negative emotion (feel bored). The opposite value (e.g. courage) is associated with an opposite positive emotion (feel excited) and a negative emotion (feel afraid). Two surveys employing 144 respectively 120 undergraduates confirmed the proposed circumplex structure of values with positive and negative associated emotions.
