Appendix III

Values Coding System for Children's Stories
In Part One of the system the scorer identifies with Ego. Ego is defined as any character who participates in a major sequence of interaction, involving at least one third of a story. By Ego we mean a person or an animal acting as if he were human (i.e. in a humanlike way). Each character in a story who meets these requirements is to be scored separately in part one of the scoring system. The most important character is scored first.
I. The self orientation (individualistic achievement value complex): take the point of view of the Ego.
A. STATUS OF EGO. Ego must be classified as either a superior, inferior, or as a peer.
1. By SUPERIOR we mean any individual who is in a position of authority or superiority relative to others around him. Age, size, social status, or strength are the characteristics which mark off a superior individual.

Examples:

King Lion called a council of the jungle animals to see whether they could discover what the great creature was that flew over the jungle a few days before.

Father tells Peter that if he thinks a dog's life is better than that of a human he ought to try it.

2. By INFERIOR we mean any individual who is in a position of lesser age, size, social status or strength with regard to others interacting with him.

Examples:

A lion cub who is told that man is intelligent while he is only a beast, investigates and finds that it is true, much to his sorrow.

The loyal little mouse frees king lion.

3. PEER is to be used under two conditions: the first of these is when Ego's position is not explicitly superior or inferior or when he is both. He must be classified then as a peer. The second meaning of peer is when Ego is "one among equals." Here we mean someone of the same age, size, social status, strength, etc.

Examples:

Of all the students in the contest, Peter brings in the brightest gift and wins the prize.
