Choices We Make Worldview Analysis for One Person

A Program for Finding the % Correlation Between Worldviews (version 4.2 themes based)

 This program is designed for one person to use in comparing his or her worldview with twelve different generic categories of worldviews--all of them based on the choices made when presented a deck of 52 Choices We Make playing cards (or booklet) with different worldview theme choices on each side (in each frame).   It will also check this person's worldview for internal inconsistencies and encourage further investigation in this regard. To involve a second real person in the analysis you need to use the basic two person program.  

 Before Running This Program: 
While not required, this program is intended for use with the Choices We Make playing cards or booklet that we provide for use in characterizing worldviews.  Follow the activity instructions...With sorting cards, worldview themes you prefer are placed up (so that the theme you don't prefer is down) in making a) a quick assessment with one pile that will contain 20 cards, or b) a more detailed assessment with three piles using all 52 cards  -- see below.  Note just use the scorecard if you have the booklet only.  
 
Running This Program: This program has three parts:
1) input data , 2) receive % correlation as output and interpret, 3) receive list of inconsistencies as output and interpret / explore  

PART ONE: INPUT DATA

==>CAUTION: Use mouse or tab key to advance / click to process input when directed --DO NOT USE THE ENTER KEY!


INSTRUCTIONS:

a) for a quick assessment:  Go through the list of 52 choices below and change the two default scores of "5" (meaning "no preference") to scores of "10" (meaning "strongly value") and "0" (meaning "no value") for 20 of them.  If you have the playing cards or booklet, prior to making these selections you should carefully read the theme descriptions for all 52 cards / choices. If you have cards you can make your selections by sorting and pulling the corresponding card out and placing the theme you like face up in a separate pile. When complete your pile should contain 20 cards. That pile of 20 cards can speed up entering your input below. Using the booklet you note your selections on a scorecard and that can guide your entering scores below.. Lacking the cards or the booklet you can click on the choice links or individual worldview theme links below for more information regarding these paired choices. Note you'll need to do this before you start running the program -- if you click on these links while running the program and inputting scores its execution may halt! 

b) for a more detailed assessment: If you have the playing cards or booklet, prior to making these selections you should carefully read the theme descriptions for all 52 cards / choices. Prior to entering data below, if you have cards you'll use them to make three piles of cards as follows:
in pile #1 put cards for which you have a very strong preference (20 cards);
in pile #2 put cards for which you have a definite but not as strong preference (20 cards);
in pile #3 put cards for which you have no strong preference or are not applicable (12 cards)
If you don't have cards, you'll do the equivalent sorting  using the booklet and noting your selections on the scorecard--which will guide your entering scores below.
Whatever way you make your selections, you will need to input data below as follows: 
a) ...for pile #1 / very strong preference cards, enter a "10" for the themes you have facing up; enter a "0" for the themes facing down 
b) ...for pile #2 / strong preference cards, enter a "8" for the themes you have facing up; enter a "2" for the themes have have facing down 
c) ...for pile #3 cards, the default scores of 5 already entered can be used for each theme.

    + 100 % ( greatest possible correlation between the worldviews) to
    - 100 % ( least possible correlation between the worldviews) 
+ scores ( > 0%) indicate some degree of positive correlation                       
very large + scores ( > 50%) indicate a substantial amount of positive correlation

-- scores ( < 0%) indicate some degree of negative correlation                                     
very large - scores ( < --50%) indicate a substantial amount of negative correlation    
   

DISCLAIMER -- While the methodology behind the above analysis of your worldview based on your 52 playing card choices has rigor and is based on both common sense and respected scholarly work, because both human beings, their worldviews and society are extraordinarily complex, and that accurately representing even a single individual's worldview is a daunting (probably impossible!) task, project Worldview makes no claims as to the ultimate accuracy of this analysis.   We are committed to steadily refining our framework and methodology for understanding, analyzing, and comparing / contrasting individual worldviews. We hope that these tools are useful and will respond to your inquiries regarding your use of them, and welcome your constructive suggestions. 

The Internal Consistency of Your Worldview
Your worldview has internal consistency= %
The maximum score--indicating the most internally consistent worldview-- is 100%; the minimum score is 0%. The lower your score, the more work you'll need to do in understanding the source of the inconsistency. For comparison, the internal consistencies for the twelve generic worldviews range from 35 % to 100%. 

FLAGGING INTERNAL INCONSISTENCIES IN YOUR WORLDVIEW

The Internal Inconsistencies in Your Worldview appear in the long single row window below.

(TO VIEW COMPLETE LIST BELOW, SCROLL ACROSS TO RIGHT UNTIL "Attention list of inconsistencies now complete! APPEARS)


Identifying the inconsistency in terms of a specific contradiction between themes:  

    We expect most people to have at least a few inconsistencies since a very "large net" of possible theme conflicts has been used.  Some of those identified may indicate serious flaws in your understanding,  hypocrisy, etc. while others may be of little consequence and even expected given the ground covered by certain themes.
    To follow up with investigating the flagged inconsistencies, first get out your "Scorecard." If you have an inconsistency for a particular worldview theme, go to its worldview theme page and consult the list  labeled "worldview internal inconsistency related: Strongly valuing this theme and any of the themes in the list below is a contradiction" A contradiction between two themes is indicated when a theme flagged in this program's window output above is linked to a theme that you also "strongly valued".  In this case, your scorecard should show you scored 10 for both themes.  (Note: the theme choices page has links to all of the worldview theme pages.)
