Though the taking of the survey in and of itself will give the taker insights into topics, questions, and issues associated with intercultural communication, the results of the survey will NOT stand alone!
In order to understand its fuller implications and the meaning of the four skill areas and their subareas for intercultural communication covered by the survey—Personal Awareness, Manifest Bias Vulnerability, Social Bonding Orientation, and Family Diversity Orientation—you will need to read the book associated with the survey. The book was written in conjunction with the survey and helps to explain what each skill means and how to develop the skills further as well as the information sustaining the ideas behind the skills (both practical and theoretical/theological).
Information on the book will be available as soon as publication takes place and a link to the book will be located [here InterVarsity Press].
This is a totally anonymous survey.
The survey consists of thirty-two statements, each of which you will answer by indicating one of these four levels of agreement:
O Strongly Disagree
O Strongly Agree
Please select the first level of agreement that comes to mind.
YOU CANNOT SKIP statements YOU MUST give a level of agreement for EACH one.
At the end of the survey you will be shown a graph with your results. You are encouraged to print this page for future reference.

"I agree that the anonymous data collected will be used for reporting on the survey. I accept the possible discomfort I may experience and welcome the opportunity to learn about my own ways of thinking about race, ethnic, language, and cultural diversity, ways that for most people are unconscious and of which most are unaware."
