The questions (Topics) that make up “A Look In The Mirror” are designed to show where the Neighborhood Resident is along the effort scale; in other words, what efforts are they making to better themselves. This approach is different than most other well-being assessments that measure (or attempt to) where a person is in terms of results. Our intent is to not discourage someone who may just be just beginning their well-being journey. Self-efficacy and the embrace of “effort matters” underpins the 3.0 (and Melvin’s) structure. In a Perfect World, each activity in a person’s life should should be linked to an assessment of how much effort the person is putting in – not how well they performed that activity. This is reflected in “A Look In The Mirror”.
Residents are encouraged to take “A Look In The Mirror” as often as possible, especially if they feel their life situation has changed. How well Melvin and his brain, the bleedingEDGE Platform, operate is determined by how up to date information is from the Resident.
