social attitudes questionnaire

social attitudes questionnaire
This questionnaire lists different attitudes or beliefs which people sometimes hold. Read each statement carefully and decide how much you agree or disagree with each one. For each of the attitudes‚ show your answer by putting a circle round the words which best describe how you think. Be sure to choose only one answer for each attitude. Because people are different‚ there is no right or wrong answer to these statements. To decide whether a given attitude is typical of your way of looking at things‚ simply keep in mind what you are like most of the time.
