    Default SJs, do you like taking surveys?

    That is do you like taking surveys if there's not much pressure involved... not counting towards your salary or grades or something like that?

    Seeing if this is just an SJ thing or not.

    If it's a completely irrelevant survey, I don't have a problem with it. It's almost a release of the desire to show people little portions of yourself now and again.

    I don't mind if they have little circles and you have to use a number two pencil. The whole sense of doing, the smell of the paper, the feel of a new pencil. I love it.

    Those email survey things though I hate it. I might fill one just to send it back -only- to the one that sent it to me.

    Yeah, I usually hate email/FB type surveys too. But online quizzes are fun and can be quite addicting.

    That's funny. I like surveys too, but not to reveal little bits of me or because I like the feeling of doing it. I like it that people want to know what I've got to say.

    Sorry, I know I'm not an SJ, but I think it's interesting that there are quite a few places of overlap between what we like, but usually with entirely different motivations.

    Hmm... surveys... I'm kind of the opposite of everyone else.

    I dislike taking surveys unless I know it's relevant and could benefit me or the greater good. For instance, I do not mind leaving feedback on online sites that I have purchased things from, like eBay or online stores.

    I also like doing those polls on news sites like AOL.com and stuff, but only the ones that do not ask for my e-mail address... unless I feel it's an important poll.

    But if it's a stupid survey with strings attached (that asks for my address and all that information) then no, rare chance that I will fill it out...

    Maybe I'm not understanding the question? I feel like I'm not answering it properly.

    I do enjoy a survey, if it's not too long.

    d@v3 - You answered it fine. I hate filling out those feedback things. I'm with you on not bothering with the kind that makes you give all sorts of info. Like getting a free sample of something, only to discover that there's a lengthy survey required along with leaving contact information.

    I jumped through hoops today just to get my credit report and score. I knew it was a bad idea because you had to sign up for a "free" trial membership to get them. Well, sure it was free, but you have to call them up and harass them before they finally agree to cancel your account before the trial ends and your credit card is charged!

    P_M, you are right, if it's too long I'll probably just skip it completely, but it depends on the importance of it and what priority I hold the subject to.
