Pillars of Values and Character

Value and Character

Values are relatively stable beliefs about specific models of desired behavior and the desired end state of the environment. Value is something that is abstract, but understood and understood by the user community. Value is something that can perfect humans according to their nature and has moral weight when integrated into certain moral behavior.

Value cannot be separated from character. Character determines one’s thoughts and actions. Good character is the existence of intrinsic motivation to do what is good according to the highest standards of behavior in every situation. Good character must have three aspects, namely moral knowledge, moral feelings, and moral behavior.
