TAKE THE COLLAPSE PERSONALITY PROFILE SURVEY HERE

I'm going to hold off on publishing FULL RESULTS of the Collapse Personality Profile Survey TM until next week, because the results coming in so far are absolutely FASCINATING and I don't want to skew further respondents answers by giving away too much of what has come in so far.  We have around ~80 respondents to the survey in the first week, and I will tell you that watching the numbers accumulate, the percentages for each category have not changed much if at all from the first ~20 or so to the current ~80. What that means in statistical terms is that the results are invariant in terms of sample size in this population.  So it's pretty valid already, but still I want another week's worth of data in there before doing a final crunching of the numbers on the spreadsheet for the Personality and IQ data.

What I will fill in on in for this week is the Demographics, which mostly I expected but in some areas i was surprised. 

The first surprising area was Doomer Gender.  My experience across the net over the last 8 years or so has been 10% or even less of the participants on Doom Websites were female.  However, the Survey Sez that the percentage of females haunting the Doom-o-sphere TM is actually around 20%!

All Data 62

26.41 77

So with Doomer Females, it seems likely that only half of those who read Doom (and will do an anonymous survey also) actually will ever post up on a Doomsite TM.  That is an anecdotal WAG based on my own experience, not scientific.  lol.

Unsurprisly, most Doomers are White Males from North America with a formal education of Bacheors Degree or better:

The most surprising to me Demographic was the Age Distribution!   My experience has been that most Doomers are Boomers, aka people around age 50-70.  This does not seem to be the case at all though, rather Doomers are distributed pretty evenly through all generations, although the Gen X-Y group is dominant here.

  <18 18-24 25-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-69 70-79 80+ Standard Deviation Responses

I will save the stats on Personality Typing and IQ for next week, other than to say that Doomers appear to be a good deal Smarter than the Average Bear by the measure of a short IQ Test.   I was a bit surprised at how many actually took that test and reported their results.  Whether everyone was honest about it  or did not cheat the test I don't know.   Based on the average level of education though, I think this average IQ is probably valid, although perhaps up-skewed 5-10 points.

Next week I will publish the actual PERSONALITY of DOOMERS results, which are actually even more interesting. 🙂  So if you have not yet already done so, you have one more week to take the tests and answer the survey before I run the spreadsheet for this tally!
