In psychology Value refers to the relative importance that an individual places on an item, idea, person, etc. that is part of their life. These feelings are unique to the individual. For instance, a person may have a great attachment to some item from childhood that another person might see as garbage, but that item can be said to have great sentimental "value" because of the memories or other association that it evokes in its owner.
