n this study, a detailed analysis of theoretical material and existing studies on the topics of individual values ​​and creative behavior was carried out. Based on the knowledge gained, an empirical study was developed. Data collection was carried out remotely through the distribution of questionnaires on the Internet. the sample included respondents from two age groups: 18–25 years old and from 45 years old. This separation is intended to represent different age cohorts in the study. The choice of age intervals is based on the periodization of D. B. Elkonin (Elkonin, 1971). The sample size of the entire study is 110 people. The information received was processed in two stages. When processing the data, the method of averaging and hierarchical regression was used. Having considered the problems stated in the final qualifying work and having analyzed the collected data, we can draw the following conclusions: The study attempted to establish a relationship between individual values, creative behavior and age, as well as to identify values ​​that are significant for groups in the age range of 18-25 years old and older than 45 years old. For this, a written testing method was used, which has shown effectiveness in studies on similar topics. The final analysis of the data revealed significant values ​​for the age group “18 - 25 years” - “Achievements” and “Power Resources”, for the age group “over 45 years” - “Tradition”, “Safety - Public” and “Security - Personal” . In addition, it was revealed that the only value significantly differing by sex - “Public Safety”, is more pronounced in men. The dominant value in both age groups is “Benevolence - Care”. In addition, the characteristic of personality’s innovativeness and its components - “Risk for success” - turned out to be more characteristic of the group “18 - 25 years old”. Significant differences in the indicator of creative behavior in everyday activities among age groups were not found. The constructed model of hierarchical regression showed that age is not significant in determining the relationship of creative behavior and values ​​for the available sample. The study contributes to the development of theories of values, creativity, and creativity due to the fact that it considers these concepts in conjunction with the aspect of the influence of age on them. However, in order for this contribution to become significant, it is necessary to collect a larger number of representative samples and a more complete statistical analysis.
