Questions the validity of measures of actual and perceived value-similarity based on E. Spranger's (1928) typology and, therefore, about the validity of findings and conclusions based on such measures (C. T. Hill and D. E. Stull, see PA, Vol 67:7766; T. M. Newcomb, PA, Vol 67:3548). It is concluded that the phenomenally meaning value categories that persons use in coming to decisions about liking and attraction do not seem to be captured by the 6 undifferentiated values Spranger formulated for another purpose.
