This is an interactive version of the Nature Relatedness Scale (NR-6).

Introduction: The psychological construct of "nature relatedness" was developed in the field of environmental psychology. Individual definitions vary, but a straightforward one is 'the strength of connection to nature that an individual feels'. The Nature Relatedness Scale (NR-6) was developed using factor analysis from an initial longer version in 2013 by Elizabeth K. Nisbet and John M. Zelenski for use in research and has been used to study how a broad range of topics are connected to nature relatedness, from psychadelic use (Mograbi et al., 2022) to product choice and shopping behavior (Pakingan et al., 2022). For further information about the effects of nature relatedness and correlations of the NR-6, see our page with supplemental documention which users of this scale can use to interpet their scores.

Procedure: The test has six statements of opinion that you must rate on a five point scale of how much you agree with each. It should take most people about one minute to complete.

Participation: This test is provided for educational use only. It should not be used as psychological advice of any kind and comes without any guarantee of accuracy or fitness for any particular purpose. Also, your responses may be recorded and anonymously used for research or otherwise distributed.
