Default Who has higher sensation seeking Snowboarders or Skiiers !!! Please Help !!!

Hello people

I am a 3rd year student from the university of Portsmouth and i am doing my dissertation project on the sensation seeking differences between skiing and snowboarding and whether these differences then lead to having more likelihood of experiencing conflict on the slopes. if you could please fill in the questionnaire by following the link below i would be very grateful.

Sensation seeking Scale Form - V - Survey powered by eSurveysPro.com

Please answer the questions truthfully and thankyou very much, i will post my results from the study on here after i have analysed and reported them.

Plus just to make this clear as some people seem to been having a few issues. The questionnaire was not designed by me it is the work of a Dr Marvin Zuckerman and measures the psychological trait of sensation seeking. The questionnaire is for both skiers and snowboarders and the results have not been manipulated in any way.

Thanks
Sam Nowell

No one gives a fuck about problems with skiers vs. snowboarders on the slopes. People are people. Now go do your homework somewhere else.

You should have an option for someone who skis and snowboards.

Many of your questions need the ability to answer both.
For example...

Quote:
2. Which sport do you participate in? *
Snowboard
Skiing

6. *
A. I like wild and unhinhibited parties.
B. I prefer quiet parties with good conversation.
Then there are a ton of questions that assume you don't do the activity in question.

Quote:
8. *
A. I often wish i could be a mountain climber.
B. I can't understand people who risk thier necks climbing mountains.

22. *
A. I would like to try surf board riding.
B. I would not like to try surf board riding.

28. *
A. I would like to try parachute jumping.
B. I would never want to try jumping out of a plan with or without a parachute.
And what the hell is this one... people are people, who cares about their sexual orientation. I wouldn't intentionally try to avoid or meet someone because they are gay.

Quote:
27. *
A. I would like to meet some persons that are homosexual.
B. I stay away from anyone i suspect of being queer.
I think you will find no difference between skier and boarders. Your results should match a sample of the population at large.

I also believe your survey question are to imprecise to gather meaningful data.

BTW, I marked two typos you may want to fix if this is for your dissertation.

A lot of these questions have nothing to do with skiing or snowboarding, wtf? Plus, many of the questions require more answer options. I decided I would not fill out your questionnaire because the choices for the questions given don't correspond how I would answer.

This is fucking retarded and that survey is even worse. My advice, the next time you run into Dr. Zuckerman, whip out your cock and smack him across the face and ask him, "How's that for high sensation seeking, BITCH!"

have u skied or boarded?

what site are u sampling for skiers?

what is the definition of "higher sensation seeking" and what are your conceptual anchors?

how are you accounting for beginners, intermediates or expert advanced level responses?

how are you going to report your findings to the survey participants?

how do i know when i win the $5000...who are the hot sb chicks in a hottub for the winner's poster or will they be skier chicks?
