This study aims to examine the relationships between value orientations and motivational action conflicts of adolescents and to determine how the value orientations predict motivational action conflicts and motivational action conflicts predicts value orientations. The research was carried out within the framework of the cross-sectional screening model. The research group consists of 833 (50.9% girls, 49.1% boys) students who are studying in different types of high schools (Science High School, Anatolian High School, High School, and Technical High School) in Kocaeli province. In research, the “Value Orientations Scale” and the “Motivational Action Conflict Scale” have been used as data collection tools. As a result of the research, there were significant relationships between value orientations and motivational action conflict. In conflict, which constitutes a conflict of motivational action, the decision was made as a result of learning, studying and leisure time meaningfully predicts achievement value orientations. It was also found that decision, learning, studying and leisure time in conflict significantly predicts well-being value orientations. It has been determined that achievement and well-being value orientations significantly predict decisions in conflict. Again, achievement and well-being value orientations are found to be a meaningful predictor of learning/studying. Besides, achievement and well-being have resulted in value orientations meaningfully predicting leisure time. Value orientations and motivational action conflicts in adolescents are proposed to be studied experimentally AND with different variables as well.
