In the scientific space and in this article, one can observe the differentiation of the definition of the term’s "value", "value orientations", because it does not yet have a common clear definition. Many researchers had dealt with this topic, researched, analyzed, observed, and made conclusions, but there is still a rich scope for research of such phenomena of personal structure as value orientations. Therefore, all this embodies relevance and expediency.

Outstanding psychologists, researchers who, in their scientific, practical, and theoretical works, dealt with the topic of values and value orientations and came to the general conclusion that values are a structural component of a personality, with the help of which a person achieves a goal, sets this goal, and moreover, characterizes position in life.

Personal values are formed based on social needs. Their implementation takes place in general social and general class conditions. In science, the concept of "value orientations" is correlated with the value standards of a group, class, nation, social system, on the one hand, and, on the other, with the motivational orientations of the individual.
