Hello readers,

My friend Berry is looking for another few participants, and writes:

"If you have 10-15 minutes to spare and would like to take part in a new questionnaire that we're developing we'd be very grateful. Do pass it on too to anyone you know who may help us out by doing it:

If you wouldn't mind sharing this link far and wide, too, that would surely be appreciated.

Since I decided to take on trust that the research is of value, I completed it. The payback is that when it is done, I'd like to be told more about what it was intended to discover, and what results or conclusions result from it.

Additional feedback: In real life the decision would be based on more data than available in the question. For example, is there any reason to believe that shares in company A or B are more likely to increase or fall in value in the future?

I will ask Berry about the research, and agree with you comment about lack of information about some of the scenarios...

Very much agree on your additional feedback. I left a rather incoherent note at the end about how for a lot of the questions I just wanted a lot more info before I could make a sensible choice. I more often than not had a strong response of 'well it all depends', which led me to put an answer close to the middle, where with more information I could have been more certain - in other words my degree of certainty was affected more by what seemed like problems in the presentation of the scenario than by the details of each scenario itself, if that makes sense. My brain is all woolly tonight so I don't feel I'm making much sense right now, but I'd be glad to discuss further with Na'Lon or Berry if that would be helpful.
