    Default Gamer Personality Survey! (student thesis project)

    Hello! For one of my thesis projects I am running a survey and would like to open it up to everyone here. The survey is expected to take 10-15 minutes and there will be no identifiable information taken , no account information, no naming ( just very basic demographics such as gender and marital status). If you have any questions about taking the survey or in general please contact me here. Thank you.

    I started the survey but couldn't finish it legitimately and stopped. Quite a few of the questions were either unclear or didn't really match the agree/disagree or love/hate rating scale. For example one question asked for a love/hate scale on "feeling relieved"...not sure how to answer that. Another was love/hate on being "in control at high speed". Is that a figurative expression or literally behind the wheel of a vehicle?

    All of the questions are general application for self interpretation.

    I would think that would be impossible to evaluate. You might want to make sure the questions can only be interpreted how you mean them to be so you're measuring what you think you're measuring.

    The rating scale also needs to match the question, make obvious sense, and contain no negative questions (i.e. (agree/disagree) "I do NOT like x"). Depending on how logical a person thinks, negative questions can be confusing.

    Sorry, I was a teacher some 25+ years ago and this was a subject we were painstakingly trained in. I see you're in a psychology class so I'm sure they'll do the same for you. Good luck.

    Valid data requires valid sampling. If this is for a thesis...please, rework this. For your grade's sake.

    Meh, English as a third language typos on a new keyboard are to be expected. Thanks for the quality words though.

    Not for a grade? Valid data was already sampled. Not sure how to respond to something like this.
