EQUALITY

Imagine an Importance Scale that varies from 1 to a maximum of 9. (1) stands for "no importance to me at all," and (9) stands for "supreme importance to me." In other words, the larger the number, the greater will be the degree of importance to you. Give one number (either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9) to the following item to express how important it is to you personally. You can concentrate better by asking yourself the following question when you rate an item: "How important is this item to ME personally?"- Equality (brotherhood, equal opportunity for all)
