My EcoType: How I think about ‘the environment’ after studying it for 4 years

My Survey Results

“Thank you for recently completing our EcoTypes survey. Here is your personalized report, calculated from your responses. If you’d like more information to better understand this report or the EcoTypes initiative, go to the EcoTypes website (
You responded to four statements from each of fourteen EcoTypes axes. Most of these axes are bundled into three main EcoTypes themes below. You’ll see your average scores, from -10 to +10, with negative values suggesting greater affinity to the left pole, and vice versa. What sorts of patterns in your environmental ideas emerge from these summary values?
We also calculated an EcoTypes polarity score for you: higher polarity scores (roughly 3 or greater) mean that your axis responses were more toward the right or left poles; thus you expressed stronger views overall than others. Like your axis responses, this is neither good nor bad but provides opportunities for reflection and comparison. Here’s your polarity score: 4.0.
Below your EcoTypes tables is a table summarizing your average response to grid-group cultural theory items. What do these summary values say about you? Do you believe you match the grid-group type assigned to you below? How may it relate to your EcoTypes axis and theme scores? For more information on grid-group theory, see the EcoTypes page.
Make sure to save this email so that you can compare your score to those of other respondents in your class or on the EcoTypes website. You may also be asked to retake this survey at some point in future to see if your responses changed at all, so you’ll need to compare the two email reports. If any questions, feel free to email the EcoTypes initiative director, Prof. Jim Proctor of Lewis & Clark College ( Thanks again for completing the survey!”
