'This one' poll results

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 18, 2008, 8:52 PM
EDIT 10-24-08:  

I'm going to be out of town from Fri Oct 24 to Tues Oct 28.  Flying to New York for a wedding.  :)  I probably won't have much internet access this weekend, so I might not reply to notes or comments until I come back.  

For those who are playing the Telephone Game, please try to stay on schedule.  And if you're sending it via e-mail, it'd be a great help if you could contact the next person on the list and try to e-mail directly to them instead of through me, since I'm not sure I'll be able to do it in time this weekend.  

-----

Just in case anyone's curious, here's the result of the "This one" poll I posted a few days back.  I briefly edited the options to show which position the answers were.  Thanks for humoring me on this, everyone!  :lol:


(1=top, 2=middle, 3=bottom)


EDIT:  Here's a link to the poll in case anyone's wondering:  hakubaikou.deviantart.com/jour…

I chose the least popular option. I wonder if that makes me extra weird? XD

looks like people tends to choose the last options :O
I thought everybody would think that something in the middle is better than an extreme, so I picked the middle one.. I lost :doh:

I say it means that 3rd was the most chosen because people think "everyone is gonna go for 1st or 2nd, I don't want to be like everyone else... pff, I'll go for 3 and be different!".

At least that's what I did... O_o

i would like to see this sort of thing done for different groups, or nationalities. see if it is a content thing, or if it matters what your culture is like.

I chose the second one. Mainly because to me it often feels that the first and last would get picked first in case if there's 3 options.

I think other non-numerical reasons for me picking the second one is the fact that number 1 has never been my thing. I mean, I don't try to score first at anything and rather stay on the background since I don't like to be in the center of attention. Also I like the silver medal best out of all 3 XD

Humm.... Well, I picked the one in the middle but I can tell it wasn't a random choice lol, wether I was aware of it or not. The one in the middle cause it was between the two other options : it looked safer, reassuring to me xD. Even in real life, I tend not to take a radical stand, my choices and stance are moderate most of the time ;p.

I am curious to find out about the others choice now...

Huh. That seems strange to me. I read somewhere that, given a number of choices, people tend to pick the ones closest to the middle. I don't remember why, though. :/ -ponders-
I think I picked the first one...

I dunno. But this poll is hardly scientific, so I wouldn't put too much in the results. :p

Along similar lines Princeton's EGG (global consciousness, coherence, and resonance machines) have been going crazy lately ..

This is a random event monitor, there are 65 world wide, and it has had some very busy moments lately, it seems.

Here is the The Global Consciousness Project explanations page: [link]

It is pretty succinct: -- The machines register random pings and then note any non-randomness ...

Until the latest go round with the global financial meltdown crisis, the most non-random moments registered (which I have read about ... long time back) was the chase of the Sports Hero after the finding of his murdered lady at the estate. Simpson, I think. (See, I was not very impressed I guess).

It was sort of on the same idea as the non-random choosing of choice one, two or three.

I found Adobe Software at significant discount, could it be Pirated ??? .. and still selling on the web?

As someone who is pursuing a degree in psychology (but has no actual knowledge of this): I argue that it's recency effect.

As someone who had to look up "recency effect", I'd argue that 1.) The list was really short! and 2.) Recall hardly matters when every single choice is exactly the same. :giggle:

Seriously though, it's just a goofy poll. Hardly scientific at all. ^_^
