Yes a certain fluidity in value prioritization to adjust for the circumstance seems appropriate. Inflexibility where one's values are concerned could certainly be a frustrating experience when up against something which could seemingly threaten it. I'm not talking of course about compromising your principles, rather just understanding their boundaries.

Values and principles. As it is a work day, I have not been able to do much research, however, I am wondering what the difference is between values and principles. Are they synonyms? Is there a nuanced difference?

I've heard it said that principles are truths, values are the importance we place upon them.

Then I found this: http://personalitycafe.com/myers-briggs-forum/13108-difference-between-value-principle-f-vs-t.html#post252467 which seems to state in personality types "T" is more cognizant of the immutability of truth (our holy grail) therefore our values can be fluid; "F" places more importance on sticking to values because its more important as an identifier to who they are.

I found it interesting that the F's take on values had to do with what they found personally important, based on how they feel, rather that what could is actually true. A very distinct difference between F's and T's.

Thanks for the link!
