  1. David Lawrence Hawthorne here from NYC: This is a wonderful idea and good execution. I look forward to further sessions.

  2. Alexander, I think you are on the right track. Your scoring factors are good but I would add one more –a de-monetarized rating for “risk tolerance.” This dimension assess how we reliable we claim to be, and how reliable our many colleagues find us to be. We may want to help, but do we? How far will I go to do what my colleague needs me to do? We are each different in this respect, and different un varying circumstances. If my child is sick, I may not be willing to leave her to come and help someone else, but if I promised to help, I might call someone else I know to take my place.

    1. Dear Ahito! Thank you for commenting on our surevy. So the question might be: “How reliable do you find the people in your place?”
      Our approach is, to ask for common awareness, not for individual virtues. The difference between how we see ourselfes and how the reality is, is part of literature. e.g. Tom Woolfe. But we can’t measure truth, but only collective estimates. Their validity appears in the standard deviation.
      I prefer asking for common issues instead of for individual opinions.
      Why? We tender to be quite objective if it comes to issues of commons sense. I almost met nobody lying concerning the social climate. So how can we ask for reliability without enforcing people to lie?
