Please take a survey... for science!

Title: Public Request for Participation

This is a public request for participation for an academic project, “Creativity and Blogging .”

This project attempts to discover what is the relationship between blogging success and attitude. If you choose to participate, you will take a survey aimed at discovering what you think about blogging, what you feel about blogging, and what you do about blogging. You would also be asked a few questions regarding your personality and your views on cooperation. This involves answering about seventy questions. The survey should take about 30 minutes.

You will receive no direct benefit from participating. The only indirect benefit you would receive is the knowledge you are assisting in ongoing scientific research. No compensation is provided Before you begin the survey, you will be shown an informed consent form with additional details. Of course, you can stop taking the survey at any time.

If you agree to participate, please follow the below link to take the web survey:

Question: Why did you pick yes or no answers for the social positions questions, but not for the others?

Posted by: Michael | Wednesday, November 07, 2007

Done. Good luck with it.

Done. And I suspect the essence of this quiz isn't restricted to creativity or blogging. Happy to serve never the less.

Michael,

Thank you for your question.

Social scientists use standard lists of questions, or "scales," so that they can compare the results they get from results that other social scientists got. Generally, if several questions can be answered in the same way, they are from the same or a similar scale. Longer surveys may include different scales if they are looking at more than one thing.

The informed consent form describes the purpose and procedures of the survey. If you have any more questions, please directly contact either myself or the other investigators.

PurpleSlog,

Thank you for your participation.

Jay,

Thank you as well.

If you have any more questions, please directly contact either myself or the other investigators.

Hey Dan,
All done. As usual with these things, I find myself thinking 'lesser of two evils...can't leave it blank'...
A follow up to contextualize would be cool.
Hope you're well. Continue the good fight for the wife's status. It'll pay off.

Done!

I hate those questions that force you to choose between A and B, when I actually think with both A and B, or C.
