Personal values can be ethical, moral, ideological, social, or even aesthetic. Values are mostly transmitted through parenting, but our cultural environment also plays a role.
For instance, American parents tend to value intellectual knowledge; Swedish parents value security and happiness; and Dutch parents value independence and the ability to stick to a schedule.

Boreout results from the sameness, and the monotonous routine of the job, making the worker feel empty, mentally exhausted, sad and demotivated.
