The scale you just completed was the Relational Mobility scale, developed by Masaki Yuki and his colleagues. This scale is a mesaure of how much people believe they can form new relationships or social networks in their community. Participants high in relational mobility are able to easily form new social relationships and view their social network as relatively malleable.

We are interested in examining differences in relational mobility between liberals and conservatives, and how these differences relate to the moral foundations. Relational mobility has been shown to influence a number of important social behaviors -- examples include the amount of personal information people disclose to others, or how someone attributes behavior to people or to situations -- and this "top-down" social ecological variable may have important implications for moral values.

The graph below shows your score on this scale. Higher scores indicate higher percieved relational mobility. Your score is shown in green (1st bar). The score of the average Liberal survey respondent is shown in blue (2nd bar) and that of the average Conservative respondent is in red (3rd bar).

You are a member of the group:LessWrong and those results are shown with the Grey bar.
