Core Values Index

The revolutionary Core Values Index™ (CVI™) was developed by Lynn Taylor, President of Taylor Protocols, Inc. It is the first human assessment that characterizes and quantifies the innate unchanging human nature that Abraham Maslow identified in his seminal book, The Psychology of Being.

Each of us has a unique recipe of core values.
