Darmody, John P.
Adolescence, v26 n103 p731-42 Fall 1991
Examined relationship between levels of Piagetian formal reasoning ability and values preferences derived from Rokeach Value Survey. Findings from 448 secondary school students revealed that subjects with high scores on formal reasoning ranked terminal values representing abstract notions with long-term implications higher than those focusing on immediate gratification and favored instrumental values of self-reliance, competence, and independence.
