Numerous instruments have been created over the last several decades for measuring both extrinsic and intrinsic values as they are made manifest in Western culture. Although many of these instruments are well-balanced and have strong internal validity, more progress needs to be made specifically with the items being used. If this can be done, then it may be possible for a great leap of progress in measuring the intrinsic values. It is very difficult to gain understanding about how to bridge the small differences in sub-cultures if surveys continue to gloss over delicate areas that are the very reasons for sub-culture disagreements. This chapter reviews current measurement instruments for measuring both extrinsic and intrinsic values. It gives a sample of a specific study and makes a call for improved intrinsic instruments in the future.
