In Philippine Culture, Loob or Kalooban refers to one's inner self, or, more specifically, to the internal dimension of a person's identity. It's external counterpart is labas - the physical, outward appearance. Loob is a core concept in Filipino Psychology, a field which is unthinkable without both the internal and external dimensions, "loob/labas".

As a core concept of value, Loob and its variants are a critical aspect of numerous Filipino value constructs, of which the following are examples:
