The presented test aims to assess the individual characteristics of the value system of a person and evaluates the determinants of formation and development of the value of his own life, which include: external, internal, depending on their own states and activities and other sources to increase the value of his own life. Testing allows to compare the dynamics of changes of the value of individual’s own life, in order to develop specialized psychological influences and evaluate their effectiveness for its increase. The test contains questions of two groups. Questions of the first group use verbal descriptions of life values. They aim at identifying the role of each of these values in the life of the subject. The second group questions aim at identifying the thoughts, emotions and actions, presumably measurable determinants of the value system of the individual. All questions aim at identifying the internal and external sides of individual psychological determinants of formation and development of the value of subject’s own life. Retest after specialized psychological influences showed changes in the sources to increase the value of subject’s own life. The method makes it possible to adjust the psychological impact, reinforcing the role of internal sources to increase the value of subject’s own life in the value structure of personality.
