I'm recruiting participants for an online psychological study examining values and attitudes comprising different patterns of meat consumption.<br><br>
I'm using a "snowball" method of data collection, meaning that anyone and everyone is encouraged to get the word out and pass the survey on to friends, colleagues, etc. I'm seeking to get a a representative sample of everyone on the spectrummeat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, and everyone in between, so your input is greatly appreciated!<br><br>
You can access the survey here:<br><br><a href="http://edu.surveygizmo.com/s3/543609/Personality-EatingHabits" target="_blank">Begin Survey</a><br><br>
Your participation is greatly appreciated!

I finished it, but I really don't like the way parts of it were phrased and the way things were clumped together under headings where they don't belong.<br><br>
I don't care about tradition for instance, but you had things like politeness listed under tradition or something similar, and that threw me off. I wasn't able to disagree with it as strongly as I'd have liked to because of that. What was the purpose of this confusing language?<br><br>
Also, I had to say I'd spend zero extra dollars on ethical meat because I don't believe there's any such thing and I wouldn't buy any meat at all. I'm pretty sure that a lot of people who have no problem with eating meat whatsoever would also pick zero for different reasons. It might have been a more comprehensive survey if you're made a distinction there, but it's a minor point.

Thanks for your feedback. Although there surely will be varying interpretations of the questions, the point is to answer as best and as accurately as you can. Your input for this study is very valuable!

I took the survey and now I'm a veggie boards member <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> Anyhow, I was wondering if you had posted this on any other sites so the survey would be unbiased? A more broad audience allows for a more random sample size and a more accurate data outcome.

Took it, and thought it was a lot better than a lot of other ones I have been asked to participate in.

The question regarding how much more likely I'd be to buy non-factory-farmed meat and how much more I'd pay for it was tricky, as I live in a vegetarian household. I imagined I was buying meat for my cats, instead (and yes I would seek out non-factory-farmed cat food)--but such is probably not what you intended.

Took it... It was worded a little strangely like someone else said... I had to read a question or two a couples times before I could really understand what it was asking.<br><br>
Does any of the people who post these surveys ever post their findings back on here?

Agreed. I thought some of those things contained what I would consider opposed ideas.<br><br>
I am all for politeness, and I think tradition can easily be at odds with it. I don't see how self-restraint (I think it was) is even traditional? I suppose it depends on who's traditions they are.<br><br>
Not to have a dig or anything, but it did make it a bit difficult to answer the questions honestly/accurately.
