dc.description.abstract The present study used latent profile analysis to model the values of emerging adults. Two sets of models were run with ten basic-values and four higher-order values as profile predictors. Results of both LPA models identified four profiles that reflected the theoretical structure of values. The profiles were compared across prosocial behavior, identity processing style orientations, and leadership styles. Differences between the profiles highlighted the importance of considering value profiles and multiple value simultaneously. The LPA was also compared with traditional variable-centered regression analyses. Results of the regression analyses were similar to the LPA, but complications involving applications of the results to the data, interpretation of the higher-order interactions, and nominal amounts of explained variance demonstrated issues with the method. Applications and importance of person-centered methods in the study of values are discussed.
