That was a self-valuation poll, right?

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

There is a truism that given four choices the majority of people will select the third choice and this poll is starting to show that. (Of course by posting this comment I have messed up the answer unless people do the poll before reading all the comments.)


..Tom

2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 185,000+ km, 115,000 miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

This isn't really a poll, though. You aren't presenting a question, or asking for a respondent to select between four answers specifically related to the question. It might show that, given a choice between four totally random positions, with no other qualifying information, a majority of the respondents would randomly choose position three. If the poll asked "What is your favorite motorcycle?", and the enumerated responses were A) Suzuki, B) Yamaha, C) Royal Enfield and D) Harley, I don't think that the truism you mentioned would hold true, even if the majority of the respondents didn't know much about motorcycles. Just based on name recognition alone, a non-rider would be more likely to choose a brand he'd actually heard of at some point in his life, which would probably negate choice "C".

Is there some study that shows that in a poll with a specific question with a choice of four responses related to the question, the majority of respondents will randomly choose "C"?

Or it could be that Dirt_Dad is considering posting a poll and has come to the Testing Grounds to test how to post one. More to follow?
