Connectedness to Nature Scale (CNS)


The Connectedness to Nature Scale (CNS) measures to what degree people feel part of nature (Mayer & McPherson Frantz, 2004). The study shows that this is a personality trait. This trait is predictive of responsible environmental behavior and subjective wellbeing.

PsyToolkit has various scales measuring subjective wellbeing, such as the General Happiness scale, theSubjective Happiness Scale, the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire, and the Satisfaction with Life Scale.

In a sample of 60 people (31 male, 29 female) from 18 to 68 years old Americans in Oberlin (Ohio) participated. The participants had a variety of occupations, although they were higher educated than the average American population. The average score in this sample was 3.65 (out of a range from 1 to 5).
