Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate whether the values of an individual can significantly predict the individual's self-esteem and social support or not. The study has a general survey design. The population of the research consists of 547 teacher trainees. Teacher trainees, 304 (%55.6) were female while 243 (%44.4) were male. Data collection instruments included Self-esteem Scale developed by Aricak (1999), Schwartz's Values Inventory and Perceived Social Support Scale developed in 1988 by Zimet et al. Data was analysed using stepwise regression analysis. The results indicated that dimensions of the values inventory predict both self-esteem and the dimensions of the perceived social support scale.
