a thousand questions
"I would feel violated if I learned that my opposite-sex friend was imagining what I would be like to have sex with. (1.19)"
I'd like to know as much as possible where that feeling comes from, since it seems basically universal among women, and I find it cryptic and very frustrating—as far as I can tell, it leaves no legitimate way for a man to interact with a woman he finds attractive. From a naïve heterosexual male point of view, it sounds even arrogant, as in, "Not only can I afford to take my attractiveness for granted; I feel entitled to decide who gets as much as to daydream of ever being sexually intimate with me, your alleged right to freedom of thought be damned".
For another survey, I suggest this counterpoint: "I would feel flattered if I learned that anyone at all of the opposite sex ever bothered to imagine what I would be like to have sex with. Especially if they managed to do it without throwing up".
Anyway, thank you for the good work.
That was pretty cool! I just answered a few hundred questions while on the bus.
Btw, the survey asked how we heard about it, but "read it on your blog" was not one of the options, which I found weird.
The fact that there is a non-insignificant group of people who readily admit to being genocidal maniacs is…worrisome?
Oh hey I recognize that weaposn question, I submitted that one :D (...I might have also submitted "I like rats", I forget...)
Did you ever think about doing a part 2 or 3? I was curious to see what the factors were, especially after taking the Everything Survey (you made up those fun archetypes!)
Well I was committed to answering all 1000 questions and after like 2 hrs it quit saving my responses .... my whole day is screwed lol 😆
Women are more likely to say that they are always cold. This could be iron deficiency. It would be interesting to see how the "always cold" question also correlates with any questions about vegetarianism.
Can you release a correlation matrix for all the items? If enough people answered the survey for that to be reasonably estimatable.
This is a far great first 1,000 words. Didn’t read the rest but got a lot to think about from what I did read
> "I asked people how liberal and conservative they were on two different scales - social and economic. This was on a 7-point scale"
Please plot the distribution on both a 2-axis chart and on each individual axis!
Factor 3 really makes me sad... it seems to be some combination of conformity and life satisfaction that indicates socially-constructed benefits of naivete and lack of openness and curiosity about the world.
Also factor 0 is interesting, looks like conservative/liberal at first glance but a lot of things like "I was dtf at 13" are pretty strongly in what would be the conservative sector (then again I'd consider myself right of center in post-2016 American politics and I *wrote* a question quite similar to that which ended up in a very similar place on that factor, so perhaps I should be more surprised that this is surprising to me).
