Analysis of a Sample Favourite Characters Correlation Survey, Part 1

A few weeks ago, I shared a fun short survey with regards to people’s favourite fictional characters to see if there were demographic trends.

Invite to Try A Favourite Fictional Character Correlation Survey (8 quick questions)

I have a simple little 8 question survey I’d like you to fill out if you have a few minutes, regarding you and your a favourite fictional character. I’ll correlate the answers and report back in a few weeks.

Basically, I want to know your gender and age, the same for your character, which genre or type of franchise he/she/it is in, and if you perceive the character is good, evil, both or neither. It’s all explained in the survey below, or via this link if the embedded code below doesn’t appear right on whatever you are viewing this post.

Please do share this post with any others you think might want to do it to contribute to the outcome, and watch for an update on my site on Aug 10 or 11th. Thank you!
