Get to know the 14 Human Values which underpin our research

Exploring the World

Curiosity drives us to seek stimulation, find new information, experiences and environments, and serves a broader purpose in building our knowledge and skills.

Connecting with Others

We value connecting with others because we are driven to interact and seek social closeness.

Belonging to a Group

As social animals we have an innate need to belong, which drives an essential part of human behaviour and motivates us to build meaningful relationships.

Being Inspired

We are driven to observe, imitate and compare to other people, because it enables us to learn how to behave.

Achieving Goals

Achieving goals fulfills a need to learn, develop and demonstrate competency in life.

Being Safe and Well

Once our essential physiological needs for food, water and shelter are met, our need for physical safety and mental wellbeing takes priority.
