Abstract: This paper starts from the premise that there is a strong relationship between individual values and human development. In other words, the values we embrace act as facilitating factors or, on the contrary, as barrier for our personal development. Data from World Values Survey database and from Sustainable Society Foundation are used, the purpose being to determine the extent to which the exist-ing values influence people personal development. The findings confirm the existence of a relationship between several values namely, tolerance and respect for other people, hard work, thrift saving money and things and religious faith and personal development. The analysis also deals with aspects related to Romania’s position compared to other EU countries in terms of personal development and individ-ual values.
