Brief Questionnaire to Assess Compatibility
With Worldview Themes #21A & 21B

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 donít 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. Since I am sympathetic to the plight of hard-working common people, and appreciate their struggles and aspirations, I typically side with labor rather than management.  

2. Suppose that a grassroots organization feels that its members have quite a stake in the decisions made by the board of a particular corporation. It therefore demands to have a seat on this board. I would most likely be supportive of this demand.

3.  If I were running for political office, trusting the judgment of the common people, I would prefer to see a high percentage of the electorate turn out to vote, rather than have a situation where restrictive voter registration laws limit turnout.

*4. Democracy may have problems, but itís better than any other form of government.

*5. I think that most people can be trusted.

*6. In identifying what should be this country's top priorities, I rank "Give people more say" as most important, ahead of such things as "Maintain order", "Protect free speech", or "Control prices".

7. I sometimes give freely of my time and / or money in aiding the poor, sick, deprived, handicapped or less fortunate.

*8. Service to others is very important in my life.

*9. I have done volunteer work during the past 12 months.

*10. I have frequently (nearly weekly) contributed money to a charity during the past 12 months.

*11.  I approve of labor unions.

*12. For me, a very important reason why I sometimes volunteer to help others is because I feel a sense of solidarity with the poor and disadvantaged.

13. A sense of civic duty or just "wanting to give back" is behind my community service activities / volunteer efforts.

*14.  I believe that to be a good person it is very important to take care of the sick and needy.
