2. We're interested in finding out what's really worrying people these days. I'm going to read to you a list of things that some people are worried about, but others are not. For each, I want you to tell me if that is something that worries you a great deal, worries you a good amount, worries you just a little, or doesn't worry you at all.

But please, don't feel that you need to tell us that any of these things worry you just because we're asking.
