Erik101 saidI'm curious as to what the purpose of the survey is. The reason why I'm asking is because your original post said it's a survey on career and motivation. But the survey content deals with self esteem and motivation.
there is a question related to career success. I am looking into self esteem and motivation as a driving force for career success. This is a preliminary survey to see if I have a confounding variable. This is more a reliability analysis. Once I collect the data set that I need I will then place these into a calculator to if I can even measure career success based on motivation and self esteem. -- Make sense?
It makes sense after your explanation but your survey has several open ended question not specific to your goal. Example...the subject of fear. You asked what we're afraid of. I'm afraid of spiders and heights. How does that answer help you with your analysis? If you had asked what we're afraid of when it comes to career decisions, then your variable will be more reliable.
