Done. Too bad the basilisk question wasn't on it; I hope that will one day be possible.

Did the survey!

I took the survey. Out of curiosity (too late to change now) what should I have answered if I'm not my father's first child, but I'm the first child he had with my mom? (There are kids from my dad's first marriage, but I didn't grow up with them).

I went with "no older siblings" since I assumed this was a question about socialization (or maybe even about uterine environment) but not siring. But I'd like to know for next year.

Taken! The way you were being so apologetic about the length, I thought it would be much more grueling - I found it quick and fun! :)

I completed the survey, huzzah!

Filled in, but did not do digit lengths because I have no access to a printer or scanner in the near future.

Comment author: Sigmaleph 23 October 2014 02:14:57AM 68 points [-]

Did the survey. Also, now I know my digit ratio!

Comment author: ahbwramc 23 October 2014 02:46:23AM 65 points [-]

Survey complete! I'd have answered the digit ratio question, but I don't have a ruler of all things at home. Ooh, now to go check my answers for the calibration questions.

I'm a bit confused about the accuracy of my BSRI because my true answer was frequently 'only towards my SO', such that my score would be drastically different were I single.

I'm done, but my ruler isn't good enough that I'm super confident in my digit ratios; I would have preferred one less significant digit (no pun intended, but I'll take it anyway).

Took the survey.

And yeah you should warn about the material needed for the digit ratio question in advance, so people don't start the survey if they aren't in the right conditions for it.

Took the survey. I always feel like I did the last one only recently.

Done - and mildly disappointed that we won't be measuring the prevalence of transponyism this year.

Does this post appear on LW's Main or Discussion pages for anyone else? I only found it via an offsite reference. Edit: Nevermind, I had my Main set to 'Promoted' instead of 'New'.

Taken! Thanks as always for running it

Comment author: Sniffnoy 23 October 2014 05:12:42AM 61 points [-]

Took the survey.

I did the survey. (Comments on specific aspects appear as replies.)

Comment author: JayDugger 23 October 2014 05:43:57AM 60 points [-]

I finished the survey.

Comment author: luminosity 23 October 2014 03:19:47AM 60 points [-]

Taken the survey (would have loved to do digit ratio, but too difficult to get access to the equipment needed).

For what it’s worth, I endorse this aesthetic and apologize for any role I played in causing people to focus too much on the hero thing. You need a lot of nonheroes per hero and I really want to validate the nonheroes but I guess I feel like I don’t know how, or like it’s not my place to say because I didn’t make the same sacrifices… or what feels to me like it ought to be a sacrifice, only maybe it’s not.

I took the survey. Started on the BSRI but abandoned it because I found the process of giving vague answers to vague questions distressing.
