Three aspects of valuing (competence, value system content, fulfillment) are identified and a concept, axiological maturity, is proposed linking these three aspects. The further proposal that such axiological maturity would be reflected in identity status lead to specific predictions that scores on the Identity Achievement Status Scale would be significantly related to a measure of valuing competence (The Defining Issues Test, designed to assess principled moral judgment), to a measure of valuing fulfillment (The Purpose-in-Life Test), and to the conjoint valuing of Freedom and Equality (as assessed by the content-oriented Rokeach Value Survey). These predictions were confirmed and the implications of such confirmations are discussed.
