What are the values expressed by Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

NEW! You can now take this survey on kwiksurveys here:

Take our Online Survey

This survey is designed to measure what you perceive to be the important values and forms of social support in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I thought it would be a neat idea to see what people think the values of the series are. It is one way of quantifying your perceptions of the meanings of the series. It's called a Rokeach Value Survey .

Please post your responses in the comments or email them to me to my gmail account, david [dot] kociemba. When you're done, you can take a look at one application of the survey to the series here and see the results. After some time has passed, I'll post my past class' responses to the series. If we get enough responses on the blog, I'll tabulate them all and post them here... it's for science!

Indicate the extent to which you see each value to be important in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For each question, rank the value’s importance from 1 to 5 as represented by the series.

There are no right and wrong answers. Fill out the survey to the best of your ability as an indication of what your perception of the series is.
