Through the aspect of value, much is studied in sociology. Stability as one of the key features of the value system is often taken as an indicator in testing. In order to test the stability, we contrasted classical sociology definition of value to the theory of values from the perspective of social psychology that greatly takes into account the context as key features of the value system. While testing, we looked through the prism of the corruption (taking the concept of D. Grubiša with an emphasis on socio-cultural conditions of development of systemic corruption in Croatia) in relation to the national security (where we used the concept of the Security studies of School of Copenhagen: Sectoral analysis through five sectors). Corruption as one of the social phenomena that is sensitive while testing is very suitable for observing the impact of context. We tested theoretical hypothesis: the normative evaluation of corruption is binary, while the practice is a big grey field of currently visible consequences; personal gains and losses) and the methodological hypothesis: the impact of the order of the questions on the answers, where we assumed that the mention of corruption itself and its negative association would affect the response on the vignettes, in way that respondents and respondents would be less inclined to engage in corruptive actions. The results showed us a tendency to classical sociological theory of value that advocates stability as an essential feature of the value system, and on the other hand confirmed the methodological hypothesis that question order is likely to have an impact on the responses while testing sensitive subjects.
