God kväll!

result = Eigensystem[ matrix ] gives a list {values, vectors}, where the
values are already sorted from greatest to smallest, the vectors

Changing the default sorting is possible:

Sort[ Transpose[result], (#1[[1]] <#2[[1]])& ] will change the order of the
values and corresponding vectors to smallest-to-greatest. Transpose it again
to obtain the original structure.

To sort it differently, come up with your sorting function that compares the
values of the neighboring elements.

Now that should help!
