I would like to thank the 380 people who participated in this study.


This study, like most of the online studies I have done, has more of an exploratory nature, rather than being driven by an underlying hypothesis. And because of that, there's a lot that can be said from the data that came in. But at the same time, a large part of what can be said is uninteresting to non-psychologists. To that end, I have tried to highlight the findings that make most sense, and downplay the ones which would be unnecessarily complicated to explain.


I have inserted statistical comments for completeness, and the strange notations are not meant to confuse the lay reader.


I have included the data set as an Excel file in the download section. Your thoughts, comments and questions on any part of this presentation would be much appreciated. You can contact me at
