14:20 What controls satisfaction:
– spending time with people we like
Psychologist Elizabeth Loftus studies memories. More precisely, she studies false memories, when people either remember things that didn’t happen or remember them differently from the way they really were.

The Schwartz Value Survey (Schwartz, S.H. 1992)
It measures the values of individuals.
It includes 56 single-value items, representing 10 distinct motivational value constructs.
Respondents rate the importance of each value item as “a guiding principle of my life”, on a 9-point scale from 7 (“of supreme importance”) to -1 (“opposed to my values”)
On the first axis, Self-transcendence values (Universalism and Benevolence, i.e., values emphasising acceptance of others as equals and concern for their welfare) are opposed to Self-Enhancement values (Achivement and Power, i.e., values emphasising the pursuit of one’s own relative success and dominance over others).
A second axis opposes Conservation values (Conformity, Tradition and Security, i.e., values emphasising submissive self-restriction, preservation of traditional practices and protection of stability) to Openess to Change values (Self-Direction and Stimulation, i.e., values emphasising its own independent thought and action and favouring change).
The 10th value of Hedonism is located between the Openness to Change and Self-Enhancement axes.
