Calling/Vocation Measure

I need some volunteers to take a short measure of calling.
This is for my dissertation research and at this point, I'm just trying to refine the measure by removing items that do not "hang together." The measure is only 13 items long, so it should take less than 5 minutes.
Thanks again to everyone who suggested refinements to the first draft. I welcome additional comments here.

On the first survey you sent out, I was all across the board. You've refined these questions now, so that I'm almost always on the left side of survey (the "disagree" side). You seem to have narrowed the questions to issues of moral value in vocations, as opposed to dignity, specific divine institution, or necessity for the salvation of others. Was that the goal?

Love your new set of questions. I think you had a decent diagnostic tool on the first go around, but the first version required a bit more of the interpreter to ensure the person didn't get the wrong answer for a sound reason. This set seems a bit less ambiguous. Although I still think conversation would be necessary before conclusions could be drawn. Not because I can easily see how questions could be misunderstood. But because I know how people can read unintended situations into the most carefully worded questions. That being said, this looks like a great tool.
