Generational Conflicts or Just another Point of View?

Just a few weeks ago, Ben Roethlisberger, the young MVP quarterback of the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers was seriously injured when riding his motorcycle without a helmet. When asked last year about the dangers of this, "It’s a choice," Roethlisberger said. "I just get out there and relax, I don’t try to take too many risks.”

I guess that is one point of view. Others, including the team owners, coaches, teammates, fans, and his family might disagree. Reckless is one word that might come to mind.

I’d like to suggest another: “Challenger.”

Challenger is just one of four points of view found when studying and discussing values. A point of view is merely the results of combining different beliefs into value systems that in turn drive our behaviors.
