Values closely related with social changes such as reducing of moral values' importance (Castiglione et al., 2014) and personal traits (Aluja et al., 2004). However, contribution of individual time perspective is not defined. Based on Rokeach Value Survey (RVS), Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory (ZTPI), and Time Attitude Scale (TAS), we found students' priority of self-development, social contacts, entertainment values, and insignificance of social recognition, aesthetics, altruism values (n = 78; mean age 21.6±0.9). Preference of moral values positively correlated with Past-Positive (p = 0.042), Present-Hedonistic (p = 0.032) orientations, positive attitudes toward Present for temporal distance factor (e.g. "near", p = 0.014), and contradictory attitudes toward Future for factors of structure ("structured", p = 0.006), inner control ("planned by me", p=0,046), global affective evaluation ("unpleasant", p = 0.014). Clustered groups with moral and pragmatic values' priority demonstrated higher score on Future-Orientation than students with uncertain values (p = 0.005).
