* Privacy: Your privacy is very important to us. No personal identifying information (names, email addresses, etc) will be kept, used, or sold for any purpose. Only the raw data itself is recorded to support future research on the IFS model.

*Gender: When this Scale was developed it was standard practice to ask people to identify as Male or Female. Since all the statistical norms and calculations are based on that distinction, it isn’t possible to change it at this stage without entirely redoing the research, analysis, and development. For those who identify as Non-binary, please be aware that everyone is asked to check a little box for Male or Female, and the analysis won’t work without that step. Please accept our apologies. No disrespect is intended.
