Survey Halp?--finished project ^^

Hello luverlies Sorry I've been away for so long Sad but the reason I've been so far gone, is actually why I'm here at the moment to ask for help with my homework. I'm working on an assignment for one of my classes and I need to have 100 surveys collected so I can write a huge paper about it. Unfortunately, I need to collect surveys across several demographics, and the demographic diversity in my area (both around school and at home) is INCREDIBLY limited. I have around 40 surveys left that I need to collect.

The main demographics I need are as follows:
Status:
-Non-students
Age ranges:
-25-34
-35-44
-45-54
-55-64
-65+
Race:
-African American
-Hispanic
-Caucasian

If you have a few minutes and don't mind watching my video real quick (so you can get an idea of who I am and see a little of how I act) and can answer my survey, I would REALLY appreciate it. The survey looks at how YOU see ME, and what you think I would do in a variety of situations.

For the purpose of this survey, "African American" counts for African-American, Jamaican-American, Haitian American....the definitions are VERY loose for the races. I know it's kind of offensive, but it's the way my teacher wanted us to do the project >.

I can't think of what I could do to thank you, but I would definitely be indebted to you. I am absolutely desperate >.

edit;
I'll leave this around for posterity. But thanks a bajillion to everybody who responded, I really really appreciate it Biggrin

Happy to! How lovely to find being a 47-year-old white chick is useful for once.

Yay! My college diploma is good for something!
Also, communication students unite! That was my major (how that turned into farming is complicated), so I recall many hours spent doing surveys and computer mediated research and writing excessive papers about said research. Nice to be able to help someone else with it Smile

I'll totally do it when I get home tonight/tomorrow - I hope that's okay! Right now I have to shower, get dressed, and try to hold three pies on my lap on the way to my parents' house.

You are adorable BTW!!

Sure, but not until I get home. Steaming video at work is a no-no (even though the only guy who'd tell me not to isn't here today).

Not only did I forget to do this, but coming back today I see that I said "Steaming" video.

Sigh.

I just got done reading a chapter when I wrote that, okay?

I'd like to help you with your questionnaire, but after visiting the site where you have the file hosted I've run in to multiple pop-ups, including some that either at best could be considered ads, and at worst malware installers, and some of these tried to cause instabilities in my system. If you want to move this to something like an ftp off your university website I'd be happy to participate. I know what it's like being a student (on my second round through with grad school after taking some time off to work after undergrad). If you think you're overworked and exhausted now try grad school Smile

After restarting my computer I realized that calling what I ran in to on that site malware installers was being too nice. More a whole host of trojans and installers. If you hit the initial link for the survey you might want to consider downloading and installing HijackThis: http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/hijackthis
Then downloading, installing and running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Both are free and saved me a lot of time that I would have spent tracking down files manually and deleting registry entries. If you're not quite comfortable with your computer don't run hijackthis on your own though; you can really screw up your computer. Just let the anti-malware program run it for you.

>. Again, I've learned a nice lesson in not sharing links and doing important stuff when I'm 3/4 asleep. @.@;
Thanks

Now that I've gone through all of that it seems like I can finally take the survey if you let me know where it is. As a 26 year old male it sounds like I could help flesh out your responders some.

Hahahah splendid xD Thank you The new location is here http://www.geocities.com/ochanakosaisainanoda/survey.html and there's a link straight to the document. I don't know why I didn't use that in the first place, but for the fact that sleep deprived minds are really, really, REALLY unintelligent ;__;

((And since you've been posting a couple times, why don't you go ahead and register for MLM? ;D))

non student, 35-44 age range, caucasian questionnaire heading towards ya. Good Luck!

I did a questionnaire in college, Student Interest In An Anthropology Major yada yada... for a tech writing class. It was somewhat an interesting experience, yours sounds much more fascinating...

Plus also, I have a clear visual of you now! Nothing like video...

I'm a 20 year old white male student. If you're not up to your eyeballs in survey offers from that demographic, I'm more than willing to help out, but somehow I think you've probably got that one covered. Hit me up if you want a spare.

Can you still use students or no?

Han-pan's picture

Postulant

I can still use anybody xD! Especially males, and people over the age of 24. But anybody is more than helpful!!! Thanks so much guys. Really

And I realized that I shouldn't do important things when I haven't slept right in a week xD;;; I have a new link for the questionairre that shouldn't be buggy and bad Sad ((it's embarrassing. I sorry.)

So as not to screw up any further potential survey results, for now I'll just say "yup." Agreed.

tell us a bit about the project, now?

Han-pan's picture

The point of the project really was to see how people percieve us, our personalities, and our actions.

My intent was to see if people, especially those older and of a non-student status, saw the nervousness that I feel when communicating with them. I always feel the need to impress people, older than me specifically, because peer opinions never mattered to me as a child. My project surveyed people's perceptions of my level of confidence in situations, and by extension, nervousness.

Turns out I have no reason to be nervous anyway, since people perceive me, overall, as intelligent, confident and as having moral integrity. Wish I could word that differently, but eh. Lol. I think it expresses what I meant well enough. xD Pretend it was real English Wink

On finishing! I have had to run several studies for my major also, and collecting enough data is exhausting. But Yay! You did it! And got positive results to boot Biggrin
