    I responded to one survey which had 2 lottery tickets as the reward, mailed to my address after the survey data has been entered. I can't understand why I'm waiting for the tickets so eagerly - they're worth 6$! They have an expected value of 3$

    Haha!! I actually got in an argument with my husband (prob infj) recently about how if you win the lottery you can't just give 1 million to a bunch of different people or everyone will expect a bunch of money. And that people come out of the woodwork expecting money. I'm such a sweet and caring person.

    No.

    I guess there's some entertainment in the anticipation, but I can't justify the expense when there's certain material returns if I just spend the money instead. (ie. I value a $2 coffee more than a $2 ticket).

    I do the lottery when I remember to or get a chance too, lot of the time I got to the lotto shop and the people are buying tickets are idiots, cant carry out a simple procedure of colouring in the correct numbers or are very old or ask tellers to do it all for them. That pisses me off.

    Occasionally, as in, around six or so times a year. I play the scratch offs just as (in)frequently. The most I won was $800 on a scratch off. I usually just get my money back.

    Yeah, but not religiously. I kind of have a wasteful attitude toward money, not really caring about pocket change. Best I've done is five numbers. Ended up being about $5K.

    i usually try to avoid making mistakes that simple mathematics warns me against.
    naturally, this means i can't play the lottery.

    Stop stealing my lines. Gambling is a tax on the poor(TM).
