Activist Psychological Study - Please Participate!

by PSU Undergrad Friday, Jun. 06, 2003 at 1:48 AM

An exploratory study is being done to determine if there are unique psychological attributes of people working for social change which differ from the general population.

An exploratory study is being done to determine if there are unique psychological attributes of people working for social change which differ from the general population. Three measures are used, as shown below. The survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete; participation is voluntary and anonymous; no IP addresses or other personal information is logged. Results of the survey will be posted at a future time. Any partially filled out surveys will be disregarded; only complete surveys with every question answered (except for gender) will count.

Your gender (optional):

Male
Female

For each of the following pairs of questions,
choose the one that is most consistent with your view of the world.

Children get into trouble because their patents punish them too much.
The trouble with most children nowadays is that their parents are too easy with them.

Many of the unhappy things in people's lives are partly due to bad luck.
People's misfortunes result from the mistakes they make.

One major reason why we have wars is because people don't take enough interest in politics.
There will always be wars, no matter how hard people try to prevent them.

In the long run people get the respect they deserve in this world.
Unfortunately, an individual's worth often passes unrecognized no matter how hard he tries.

The idea that teachers are unfair to students is nonsense.
Most students don't realize the extent to which grades are influenced by chance.

Without the right breaks one cannot be an effective leader.
Capable people who fail to become leaders hive not taken advantage of their opportunities.

No matter how hard you try some people just don't like you.
People who can't get others to like them don't understand how to get along with others.

Heredity plays the major role in determining one's personality.
It is one's experiences in life which determine what they're like.

I have often found that what is going to happen will happen.
Trusting fate never turns out as well as making a decision to take a definite course of action.

In the case of the well-prepared student, there is rarely if ever such a thing as an unfair test.
Many times exam questions are so unrelated to course work that studying is really useless.

Becoming a success is a matter of hard work, luck has little or nothing to do with it.
Getting a good job depends mainly on being in the right place at the right time.

The average citizen can have an influence in government decisions.
The world is run by a few people in power, and there isnít much everyone else can do about it.

When I make plans, I am almost certain that I can make them work.
It is not wise to plan too far ahead because many things turn out to- be a matter of luck.

There are certain people who are just no good.
There is some good in everybody.

In my case getting what I want has little or nothing to do with luck.
Many times we might just as well decide what to do by flipping a coin.

Who gets to be the boss often depends on who was lucky enough to be in the right place first.
Getting people to do the right thing depends upon ability, luck has little to do with it.

Concerning world affairs, most of us are victims of forces we canít understand or control.
By taking an active part in political and social affairs the people can control world events.

Most people don't realize the extent to which their lives are controlled by chance events.
There really is no such thing as "luck."

One should always be willing to admit mistakes.
It is usually best to cover up one's mistakes.

It is hard to know whether or not a person really likes you.
How many friends you have depends upon how nice a person you are.

In the long run the bad things that happen to us are balanced by the good ones.
Most misfortunes are the result of lack of ability, ignorance, laziness, or all three.

With enough effort we can wipe out political corruption.
It is difficult for people to have much control over the things politicians do in office.

Sometimes I can't understand how teachers arrive at the grades they give.
There is a direct connection between how hard 1 study and the grades I get.

A good leader expects people to decide for themselves what they should do.
A good leader makes it clear to everybody what their jobs are.

Many times 1 feel that I have little influence over the things that happen to me.
It is impossible for me to believe that chance or luck plays an important role in my life.
