Virtue Assessment: Accessibility

Accessibility refers to the ability to be approachable and readily available for communication with others. It’s about creating an environment where people feel comfortable and encouraged to reach out to you for support, advice, or simply to chat. Being accessible means you have an open demeanor and you actively listen to what others have to say, making them feel valued and respected. However, like any virtue, balance is key—too little accessibility can make you appear distant or aloof, while too much can make you seem overly eager or intrusive. Striking the right balance in accessibility helps in building strong, positive relationships with the people around you.

Assessment

Let's measure how you are doing with this particular virtue. Below are 10 questions with five possible answers each. Read each question carefully and choose the best answer.

TOO LITTLE BALANCED TOO MUCH -10 -9 -8 -7 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

This assessment utilizes a scale ranging from -10 to +10, with zero as the midpoint. A score of zero indicates that you possess an ideal balance of this particular virtue. A negative score suggests a deficiency in the virtue, while a positive score indicates an excess. Refer to the paragraphs below for a detailed explanation of your specific score.

  • -10 to -7 | Significant Deficiency. If you score between -10 to -7, you might come across as detached or unapproachable to others. While you may see yourself as self-reliant and respecting others’ independence, others may perceive this as disinterest or indifference. This aloofness can make it hard for people to connect with you or seek your assistance when needed. Building meaningful relationships and teamwork could be challenging for you. Enhancing your accessibility may involve consciously making yourself more available and open to others, even if it’s slightly out of your comfort zone.
  • -6 to -3 | Minor Deficiency. Scoring between -6 to -3 suggests you’re somewhat reserved or distant in your interactions. While you’re not completely aloof, you may tend to keep to yourself or avoid deep engagement in group activities or conversations. Although you respect the autonomy of others, it might be beneficial for you to be a bit more approachable and available. This can enhance your relationships and improve team dynamics without compromising your personal comfort or boundaries.
  • -2 to +2 | Balanced. A score of -2 to +2 indicates that you have achieved a healthy balance in your approachability. You’re accessible without being intrusive, and you know how to respect the personal space of others. You’re generally easy to communicate with and people feel comfortable coming to you with their concerns or for assistance. You’re able to maintain this balance while also ensuring that you aren’t overly consumed by others’ needs and requests.
  • 3 to 6 | Minor Excess. A score of 3 to 6 suggests you may tend to be a bit too involved in others’ affairs. While your intention may be to show interest and care, this eagerness could sometimes come across as intrusiveness. This can make others feel a bit overwhelmed or that their personal space is being invaded. Even though you’re very approachable and eager to help, it might be beneficial to pull back a little and allow others more room to breathe and manage on their own.
  • 7 to 10 | Significant Excess. Scoring between 7 to 10 indicates that you’re extremely approachable, often to the point of being intrusive. You’re very open to communication and may frequently intervene in situations to offer help, even when not explicitly asked for. While your intentions are to show concern and interest, this excessive involvement can make others feel uncomfortable or micromanaged. It’s important to strike a balance between being available and respecting others’ autonomy and personal boundaries.
