The M-GUDS-S yields scores for its three subscales known as (a) Diversity of Contact (5 items, possible range of scores = 5 to 30), (b) Relativistic Appreciation (5 items, possible range of scores = 5 to 30), and (c) Comfort with Differences (5 items, possible range of scores = 5 to 30).
The relativistic, or even nihilistic belief that one is so imprisoned is intelligible only against the questionable Enlightenment epistemological assumption that without incorrigible foundations we are cognitively adrift.
