Basic About:
Values Survey is designed to help you get to know yourself better. It does not give you answers, but insights.
You should know yourself well enough to see how this survey applies to you, and the ways that it doesn't.
This is based on some outdated stuff / equivalent to a facebook test; However it is possible to develop this properly
Let Durf know how this test/question either was or was not a good descriptor of your actual values (for future version improvements)

Technical About:
This survey is simple code HTML,CSS,JS, and can be saved locally; it has no connection and does not collect answers.
This is version 0.1, and if people really like this sort of thing then future versions can keep track of responses in a database
(anonymously, reference numbers that only you would know which surveys are yours / aggregate data about the survey itself)
The idea being that you could see how your "values" have changed over time like in 2 years you might answer differently to some questions (can you see how you change over time)

Project Development About:
Future versions would focus on developing updated and relevant questions...MORE questions to diversify the results
One major change would be a deeper look into the setup of the survey ("very true", "not true", "not sure" answers have different meaning depending on the question; answer/values design may change)
Current version only adds value to values; thus you can answer very true for all questions and max out the graph (you can get results you want to get; you can get different results depending on your mood; test design isn't reliable)
So if this type of thing really goes anywhere, future versions will focus on making it actually a proper survey, way better and way more effective at telling you about what you did with it (like statements that reduce values, or have a factor in multiple values - depends on the statements)
