So...

Something I've been wanting to do for awhile (I think BlackBlade tried something like this a few months back) is to give a Hatrack community quiz, with the intent of creating a Hatrack social map. I did something a little similar with the belief quiz statistics thread last year, but I want to do it better, with a quiz that is more tailored to the interests of Hatrack users.

So, towards that goal, I've created a ten question quiz. For each question please put the options in the order indicated in the question. Do a full ranking, even if you're not very familiar with some of the options. Please don't read this thread and then do the quiz, as that will destroy the independence necessary for it to be effective. When responding to the quiz, please format the responses like this (spaces don't matter, but punction does):

1) a,b,c,d,e
2) c,b,a,e,d
3) b,d,e,a,c
...

Use "a" for the first option listed, "b" for the second, "c" for the third, etc. rather than actually using the options. This will significantly help me with data entry and ingest for my analysis. Any comments you want to make, clarifications, etc. should be made after the block of answers, or in a separate post.

Again, if you want to be part of the quiz, please take it before you read the rest of this thread, so as to keep all responses independent.

Without further ado, my Hatrack quiz:
_____________________________________

1) Rank these Enderverse characters from most admired to least:
Bean, Alai, Ender, Petra, Peter

2) Rank these authors in how much you would anticipate a new novel from them, if it was not part of an already existing series:
Neil Gaiman, Ursula LeGuin, Lois McMaster Bujold, George R.R. Martin, Neal Stephenson

3) If time were not a limitation, rank these movie series from the one you would you most enjoy watching from beginning to end to the least:
Firefly+Serenity, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings

4) Rank these musical genres from most preferred to least:
Orchestral, R&B, Country, Big Band, Heavy Metal

5) Rank these political issue areas from most important to you to least:
Social Issues, Environmental Issues, Defense Issues, Economic/Fiscal Issues, Education Issues

6) Rank these reality television shows from the one you would most enjoy watching for a single season, to the least:
Big Brother, The Amazing Race, The Apprentice, The Bachelor, Survivor

7) Rank these video game types from the type you generally most enjoy playing to least:
Role Playing (e.g. Zelda), Sports, Strategy (e.g. Axis & Allies, Sims), First-person Shooter, Fighting (e.g. Mortal Kombat)

8) Rank these internet sites from most important/useful to you to least:
YouTube, Hatrack, Wikipedia, MySpace, IMDb

9) Rank the following vacation activities from most preferred to least:
Just hanging out, Going site seeing, Attending cultural events, Visiting friends/family, Spending time in nature

10) Rank these US Founding Fathers from most important to least:
George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin

Enjoy!

comments: not being the SF afficianado that I should be, #2 was answered purely on name recognition, as I haven't read anything by any of them. "County" in #4 is very vague. I do really like some country, which would put it as my favorite, but I abhore contemporary country, and that's usually what people mean when they say "country". Do you mean contemporary, or an average of all country genres?

I debated making it "classic country" to cut what I'd call the Rascal Flats chaff, but I didn't want to make it more specific than the other genres. Honestly, I think the most generic is "orchestral" which would include Mozart, John Williams, Philip Glass and Aaron Copeland.

That's probably true, but I'm not as familiar with orchestral music. But the point is to get a general mapping of hatrack's opinions, not individual's tastes in music, so nevermind. On another note, I learned last night that Bach's music is actually* the result of some unethical space/time manipulation and alien file sharing.


*not actually

I did indeed attempt this awhile back, I can't even remember why it didn't pan out. Better luck to you!

1) a,c,e,d,b,

2) b,d,a,c,e

3) d,e,a,b,c,

4) d,a,e,b,c,

5) a,e,d,c,b,

6) b,c,e,a,d,

7) a,c,d,e,b,

8) b,c,a,e,d,

9) d,c,b,e,a,

10) a,e,d,c,b, (But I still LOVE Hamilton, also John Adams not being on the list is a travesty)

And I debated including Adams vs. Madison for a long time, decided on Adams, and then forgot and put Madison on in the end. So, I agree. On the other hand, he and Hamilton had a lot of the same characteristics, and my intent was to get a spread of individuals, so maybe it's better with Madison. I don't know.

I don't know how I missed that I specifically checked your first post to see if you had said something like that.

I figured as much, I just hate the fact you made a question that forced me to put Hamilton last.

Notes: For number two I haven't read anything by any of them. (I'm bad, I know.) For number six I would never watch any of those shows ever. I'm more of a Top Chef, Project Runway person. And I am woefully ignorant when it comes to American history, so my choices for number ten are pretty arbitrary. Oh, and an explanation for myspace: I have a lot of friends that live across the country and it is the easiest and most convenient way to keep in closer contact with them.

Again, missing data is problematic. It'll be a hassle if you don't completely answer, even if your answers are somewhat arbitrary. If you don't, I'll do my best to interpolate data for your response, but it'll be a hassle.

For number 10, I interpreted "important" as having had the most influence, be it good or bad. If you meant influencial only in a good way, I'd need to change my answer.

Senoj: if you really prefer arbitrary data to no data, then just pick the letters out of a hat yourself and use that for my answer. It'll have the same effect.

Huh. I would have put Hamilton dead last if the question had been which of them was the most important in a good way. Down with Hamilton!

My biggest surprise was that the music question didn't list rock and roll.

Agreed. I ended up construing "R&B" broadly enough to encompass much of the genre.

I intentionally left Rock & Roll off the music list. I was trying for divisive options (they're better for discrimination), and I figured Rock & Roll would have too much of a consensus. But maybe I underestimate the diversity of Hatrack.

*I actually haven't read more than one book by any of them, so can't really rank them accurately since, um, I don't care that much.

**I assumed "country" didn't just include modern pop-country but classic country and bluegrass, that R&B ONLY included modern R&B, not "R&B oldies", and also it depends on my mood.

^ But I would only watch any of them under duress

^^But it depends on the family [Razz]

°But you didn't include Tom Paine!

Are you gonna do a chart of most similar and dissimilar Jatraqueros, like we got with the religious beliefs test? [Big Grin] (And will mine be "most foot-noted"?)

That's my intent. Early versions are uninteresting; hopefully with more responses we'll see more structure popping out. Right now, I'm just seeing sort of uniform spread across the space.

I wonder if once you complete this chart you can superimpose it on the earlier religion chart and see if any patterns emerge? Or would any patterns be completely irrelivent?

He'd be better company than Hamilton, who I'm quite sure is down there as well, and has probably tried to usurp the devil's throne more than once.

HA! Even I could not help but laugh at that.

That's not really Hamilton's style. He'd position himself into some sort of position like Aide-de-camp and the position would not have any official power. He would then simply influence the devil with his ideas and make hell run far more efficiently, well at least its fiscal policy would be greatly improved.

Aaron Burr would whine about how he does not deserve to be in hell all while figuring out a way to split the kingdom in two.

*Space exploration, were it on this list, would rank first for me.

**Zelda's an RPG? I'd classify it more as a 3D adventure game with action elements.

Frankly I think 10 should have swapped out Ben Franklin for John Adams, who I would have probably put first or second, the man was absolutely irreplaceable (amen to you Blackblade!). Madison was instrumental in the formation of the Constitution, he couldn’t have been done away with. Adams and Jefferson likewise were instrumental. I think we would have been fine without Franklin, he smoothed over some rough edges. Washington’s efforts during the war probably could have been achieved with near success by a different general, it was more his actions as president that I’d find impressive for the sake of national formation. Hamilton’s railing in the Federalist papers was also very important to the formation of the Federal government as we know it today. Hard to rank them except to put Franklin last.

Two I totally made up, I've never read anything by any of them. I've only seen a couple episodes of a couple of those reality tv shows, so I guess on that one too.

And Firefly seemed a bit odd to have next to those really big series' of movies. I know it's really popular on this board, and it's really good, but following that criteria, Battlestar Galactica should be on there too. If you replace LOTR with it, then they'd all be sci-fi too. But Firefly seems like the abberration, it's a half finished tv show, not a bit series of movies like the other ones are. Shouldn't something like Rocky be in there? Another big multimovie series I mean.

Full disclosure: 2) I'm totally guessing since I've only read one comic about Death out of all these authors. 6) I hate all these shows. This should be read as "What do I think I'd hate the least." 8) MySpace is an evil virus - like AOL. I refuse to use it.

Here we go:

1) d,c,b,a,e
2) e,b,a,d,c
3) a,e,d,b,c
4) d,a,b,e,c
5) b,e,a,d,c
6) e,d,b,a,c
7) c,a,e,b,d
8) c,b,a,e,d
9) d,a,b,e,c
10) d,a,b,c,e

I haven't seen any of those reality tv shows, so I'm just guessing there.

I'm curious what you'll come up with from all this.

The only thing I would do with reality TV and a ten foot pole is push it off the shelf.

Just an update:

I have everybody's answers to date in a map form, but I'm not very satisfied with it. I guess I asked the wrong set of questions, or we simply have too eclectic of a group, but there's really no structure in the dataset that's representable in 2D format. I'll still upload the map, like I did with the belief quiz, as well as report some of the more interesting statistics, but so far the results aren't all that interesting. I'm thinking about trying a different approach to see if it yeilds better results.

You can expect a map (for better or worse) sometime this afternoon.

If you want some ideas for questions here is the thread I created.

And I figured out why it didn't pan out. I appears I stopped working on my survey. But after looking at the timestamp date I think I recall having a legitimate reason for stopping.
