Your Opinion About Countries Around the World - with permission from Greg Bernhardt

    Hi,

    I apologize if this message is off topic. I am trying to give a broad group of people a chance to participate. Please disregard this message if you are not interested.

    I’m a student assisting a professor with a short internet survey (5-7 minutes) and I would appreciate if you could help us by filling it out. The survey is fun and is trying to get a sense of what you think about different countries around the world. Participation is completely voluntary and you can stop at any time. Your participation is anonymous and you will never be asked to provide your name. Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to participate in this survey.

    If you wish to participate, please go to the following link:

    Thank you for your help and your opinion,

    I think the terms in the questions are rather vague.

    That was probably though the most fun, seemingly boring survey I've ever taken.

    Holy cow! That was fun!!!

    Well, at least in a subdued, not too painful way. Definitely more fun than than the time the dentist started drilling and I realized my tooth still wasn't numb after about a dozen shots of novocaine (my nerves seem to take a strange route through my jaw).

    There was a typo. And now I'm really curious about what the "correct" answers are.

    I find it quite offensive that I had to check off 'no preference' under 'Religious Preference' because there was no Atheism option. :grumpy:
    Other than that, it was somewhat amusing... and really pointed out just how ignorant I am about other countries.
    And by the bye, the only category that the USA got a '10' in was income level.

    I think that's what nopreference means, otherwise why would they also have had an 'other' option?

    I did too! There must be many more proud Atheists in recent years.

    I think it was just an odd word choice there. "None" would have been clearer, whereas writing, "No preference," sounds more undecided, but, I'm pretty sure that the "no preference" option is intended to include both atheists and agnostics, while the "other" option would include a follower of any organized (or even disorganized) religion that is not in the list already.

    :uhh: It's a research survey. When everyone is done taking the survey, they'll have a result. Hopefully they'll come back and let us know when that happens, or when the results are published so that those interested in knowing the outcome can find it.

    Some of the terms are a little vague - like "developed" does this mean whcih country has the most builtup land (japan?) the highest average standard of living (sweden?) or the most advanced levels of technology (USA?)

    Probably standard of living is the gauge of which they are thinking, or per capita GDP, which doesn't necessarily correlate with standard of living.

    But I want to know that I'm 70% more edumucated and better looking than the rest of the people that took the survey. :mad:
