This indicator stems from a question included in the European Social Survey on human values in which respondents were offered the description of a hypothetical person for whom it is important to think up new ideas and be creative. The respondent must answer whether this hypothetical person is like him/her or not. The answer categories are the following: Not like me, Like me, and Neutral. Income level is presented in quintiles: incomes have been divided into five parts that are equal in percentage terms (which group together 20% of the income) giving rise to five quintiles. The first quintile includes citizens with the lowest incomes, and the fifth quintile those with the highest incomes.
