Looking inward

I've gotten a number of interesting responses from people who have taken the survey. I'd like to share a small piece of one response which I felt was very honest and refreshing. I hope that others will find/have found the survey to offer some opportunity for reflection that makes you stop and think (though perhaps not too much!)

Here is the excerpt from the person's comment:

"It asks the kinds of questions that teach you certain things about yourself. The basic format requires (for most questions) that you answer using the researcher’s words. And that can be hard to do sometimes. It’s the kind of survey where, if you are not careful, you may find yourself inadvertently giving answers that you wish were true.

It’s funny how even in anonymous surveys we find it difficult to admit certain things about life – as if checking the True box make a problem more real."
