Could any wealthy individuals help me out?

Good afternoon,

I'm doing research in my bachelors program on the lifestyle and daily interactions of wealthy individuals of society. Please note that this is a VERY basic and simplistic survey. If you have a few minutes, please answer a few anonymous questions.

Thanks for your assistance in my research.

Please ignore my ignorance but I don't understand the "late" comment? Please clue me in.

I think HaHa is referring obliquely to the impact certain recent untoward market movements have had on the "wealth" (or lack thereof) of many of us.

Back to my Alpo--tastier when I heat it up over the Sterno. I'd buy more Alpo, but each Citigroup share I sell only buys one can now.

Ohhhh. I understand. I thought it was some type of inside forum joke. My dad works in Treasury so despite the market downturn, I figure there's still individuals that were able to mitigate some of the woes. If not, those who'd still consider themselves fairly wealthy despite the market decline are welcome to participate.

Thanks for your helpful insight.

Define "wealthy?" Do you have a dollar level in mind or can Zen-wealthy qualify?

Ha is right, it is a bit late for a wealth poll.
However, we do have a damn fine poll on circumcision elsewhere on the forum.

Anyway, good luck with your project!

Ok.

Hmmm.. not interested the circumcision thread. Been down that road a looong time ago. Also, answering the survey would depend on how you assess your situation. If you'd consider yourself so, then I'd participate. If you don't decline doing so.

I absolutely will? As soon as I complete the analysis, I'll be posting it to the site listed in the survey introduction www.seeyourresults.com. I'll also post the paper to the site for conversation and review.

Does anyone know how I could survey other wealthy individuals?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Can actually walk up to people and inquire whether they're wealthy or not.

Thanks everyone!

Gunner,
Your results link does not bring up anything of value.

Connie,
The survey details won't be posted to the site until I've compiled all the answers from enough participants.

As soon as I have a good sample. I'll put all the detail out there.

Thanks for your question. Did you complete the survey? No answers will be included in my research unless the entire survey is completed.

Thanks,

I took the survey. I found many of the questions difficult to answer intelligently or in a way that would make sense. My take on the survey is this is just a "fooling around" exercise.

I took the survey. I fail to see how any valuable insight will be attained from the ridiculous questions. It seems like a scam to me. I just can't figure out the angle.

This same thread was posted at a Mercedes forum I frequent. Same survey, same request.

Only over there, the student signed off as "Jaith".

Call me a skeptic, but this doesn't pass the smell test.

If you google "CuppaJoe" you'll find me only at this forum. Wouldn't want any of you to track me.

How many of us post under various monikers?

Me, but then my username might seem a little peculiar in forums on other topics!
