I noticed that by the time you've completed your first 10K of offers you're ready to write your own surveys.  You could definitely rewrite or edit some of these surveys that are overloaded with questions that seem to ask the same question over and over, but each time it is written slightly different.  I've often wondered how does that happen?

I always thought those were trap questions.

They call it market persuasion. When you answer the way they want, they have learned what message you respond to.

I appreciate your comments.  Your explanation sheds light on this.  I had an inkling that marketing classes might have something to do with survey writing as students began working in this field of study for the clients or survey companies we see here regularly.  However, this method of questioning can be exhaustive to the survey taker.

The way I see it, it is not a dishonest answer if the options they give you don't cover your circumstances. If it is just a qualifying question, I pick something to advance the survey if they don't give a "none of the above" option and I see where it takes me.  If the main survey winds up being about something I truly am not a part of, then I will close it.



I once took a survey where I did not recall clicking any gender demographic buttons. But when it ended up asking me specific personal questions about my menstrual cycle - with no option to say "none of the above", "I have no menstrual cycle" or "I am a man" - I chose to exit the survey rather than pick the "closest" answer.

Yes, I will quit the survey in the middle of it if I don't like the questions.

I absolutely LOVE the 1 question survey for .25, 1 minute if that. Doesn't appear there is a right or wrong answer. you just get paid :)

There is a lot of times that if I don't feel right about one, I just X out. I don't know how many times I fooled around with one for 15 or 20 minutes and then I just ended up getting kicked out. I try to avoid that anymore because there is always another survey.

On a different note, I did a task that was unfair and utterly ridiculous. It asked us which was the funniest made-up word in a batch of words.

Then, at the end, marked us off if it did not match THEIR opinion. I dropped to Level 2 doing that crap.

Some of these survey and task authors should not be writing the alphabet . . .

I usually just quit out of surveys if I can't answer them properly. I don't want to run the risk of it being a trap question and messing something up later on.

I have had that happen to me as well, frustrating.

I go back to the survey page and click on the survey again and then most of the time I get the DQ'd penny.  Works most of the time

The only thing I have seen is where there is no None of the above or Does not apply option. It does not happen too often, but I generally just do not continue with the survey.

I think you have to pick one in order to get a cent.

It makes me laugh when I see one that has all kinds of spelling errors.  I also always get dq from one that has options once, twice or thrice..what is thrice?
