why do you always include an ice cream option in your polls, blabby?

possibly unrelated but i also enjoy filling out applications as long as they aren't too extensive. ticking boxes. i'm honest all of the time when it's important, but otherwise messing with data can be fun sometimes.

the ice cream option is a favor to people who feel uncomfortable answering my questions. :chef: and the most extensive "poll" I've ever taken was the 567 question MMPI :mrgreen: [a personal sort of "poll" I would guess]

I don't really like polls because... actually I don't know why, but probably because I have to choose one (or more) from the options. Decision making is usually not fun.

if there was an element of humor or if it was about your favorite thing in the world, would you like it any better?

Yes, I'd say so. If it's just for fun, totally unimportant or if I have a very clear opinion, then it's easier.

But I think I have been somehow conditioned to feel uneasy whenever I have to make a choice. Maybe an OCD thing?

IMHO life tends to be pretty teeming with unpleasant choices that one must make in a limited amount of time, lots of things out there to aggravate OCD. I try to make polls that are less-threatening and more entertaining :)

Ah, that's probably the word. Threatening. There's something threatening about polls.

I also don't like rating something on the scale of 0 - 10 etc.

I hope my poll isn't too threatening.
