Brief Questionnaire to Assess Compatibility
With Worldview Theme #12

Respond to each of the following below on a 1 to 5 scale, where
     1= strongly disagree      2 = disagree      3 = neutral      4 = agree      5 = strongly agree
If you don’t have understand, or are confused by a particular question, select 3= neutral.

Note: An * in front of the question indicates that this has been used in national public opinion surveys. 

*1. Through things such as art, music, contemplation of natural beauty, etc, we come closer to God, the Creator, the Cosmic Mind, or something like that.  

*2. Art works should freely express the artist’s deepest thoughts and emotions, good or bad, rather than just celebrate what is most beautiful about the world and the human spirit.

3. The beauty and significance of my creative efforts improved after I suffered through a period of despair, suppressed my individuality, and connected more fully with the infinite.

4.  Through my artistic creations, I hope to arouse feelings and help others perceive some of the universal harmony, grace, and vibrant mystery that I have beheld.

*5. Our country spends too little money on supporting the arts.

*6.  I have visited an art museum at some time in the last year.

*7.  I have made arts and crafts objects such as pottery, woodworking, quilts or paintings in the past year.

*8. I am actively involved in an organization that might be described as being concerned with educational, arts, music, or cultural things.

*9.   The arts and culture are important to the growth and development of my community.

10. Art can involve us in the chaos of human emotions and help us appreciate what is possible in the realm of human emotional experience. Science can help us see the order in the universe and see what is possible in the natural world. I am more comfortable with creative works involving “the chaos of human emotions” than those which communicate “the order in the universe”.
