Abstract
The paper presents results from the survey realized on a sample of Polish Internet users (N = 1900) concerning relations between entitlement attitudes and Schwartz`s types of values. Three entitlement attitudes were distinguished: active entitlement, passive entitlement and revengefulness. Active entitlement was positively related to Openness to Change, negatively to Conservative values (ie. Conformity), positively to Self-Enhancement (Hedonism) and negatively to Self-Transcendence values. Passive entitlement was related positively to the two values of Self-Transcendence (Benevolence and Universalism), and contrary to predictions to Self-Direction, and negatively to Power. Revengefulness was related negatively to Self-Transcendence and to Conformity and positively to Self-Enhancement (ie. Power, Hedonism), Openness to Change (Stimulation, Self-Direction), and Security values. Results point to different motivational sources of particular entitlement attitudes related to self versus others interests and to Openness to Change-Conservatism dimension.

Key words: entitlement attitudes, values
