view name of multiselect in list instead of view

In my model i have:

PRIORITY_TYPES = [      [ 'Trivial", "1" ],      [ "Minor", "2" ],      [ "Major", "3" ] ]

in my new entry form i have:

<%=, Project::STATUS_TYPES, :prompt => "Select Status") %>

in my view/project/list i have : <%= h(project.status) %>

but when my controller lists the project details it only shows the "id" of the select instead of the name in the model. How do i resolve the name to id relationship for the view?

any help you have would be great, Thank you,
