More than 9,400 people across the United States participated in various stages of research conducted to develop this tool. The assessment was developed using two statistical procedures – multiple regression analysis and factor analysis – to narrow an original list of 300 assessment statements to the 48 best questions to help you gauge your money mindset. The design and testing of each item was carefully conducted by a team of Thrivent Financial researchers, supplemented by advice from Dr. Daniel Ariely and his team at Duke University, who brought renowned expertise on the relationship between choice and money.
