Welcome to the Monkey Relationship Survey
If you are taking the 12 week Challenge please complete the survey on the last day of each week so you can see your progress. This survey is free to use and you are welcome to use it as often as you like.
To see your progress keep a record of each result in a safe place - there is a template for this on the site if you need it.
Quick guide -
We ask you to score each statement with a '0 to 10' score - run with your first impressions and then watch the changes as you continue to read the book and complete the exercises.
Don't overthink - There is no right answer - your trend scores are what matter.
Just taking the survey regularly helps you think differently about what happens in your head and forms part of the overal change process.
If you find it hard to choose a score, just follow your gut, your instinct or your first idea.
Trust yourself, the survey works well to give you trend information that will reflect the changes you create in your relationship with your Monkey.
Best advice? "Take the survey every week and watch the trends."
If you follow the plan outlined in the book or supported by the challenge over twelve weeks, we expect your results to show clear improvements. Share any experiences, scores and hints and tips on our Facebook challenge page
Nature of the Survey -
We use 42 statements to evaluate the nature of the relationship you currently have with your Monkey.
Simply rate each statement between 0 - 10 where a score of 0 means ‘no or not at all’ and a score of 10 means ‘yes or completely’.
Rating the 42 statements will take you less than 10 minutes
The total combined score gives you a measure of the quality of the relationship you currently enjoy with your Monkey.
