We discuss a variety of the basic human values outlined by Schwartz. Note that these have been examined across numerous cultures. All cultures show evidence of these values, but they are expressed somewhat uniquely- just like individuals. We have all of these values available in our psychology, but we emphasize some more than others in our daily lives and over the course of our human development. We talk conservatism, openness to change, benevolence, universalism, achievement, and power. We discuss how these values are embedded and carried out within the networks of our brain.
