Hot dating survey reveals all...Traditional web survey seeks open-minded, adventurous questionnaire up for new experiences.
Intelligent, vastly experienced, technically brilliant online survey WLTM brave, forward-thinking, potential partner for playful experiences.
Has previously been involved with more conventional questionnaires but feels those relationships aren't going anywhere. Although in the past OS has been accused of being somewhat pedestrian and conservative, and sometimes even boring... now has a strong belief that the right questionnaire can turn things around.
Ideally you are modern and cutting edge. Flexibility is essential. Preferably well-read, (OS is particularly interested in the works of Jon Puleston, Orlando Wood and Jane McGonigal),and up to speed on the latest thinking about entertained respondents providing better, more considered answers. Anyone shy and unwilling to share survey feedback with participants to improve their engagement levels need not apply.
Interests to include word-play games, virtual shopping, spread-betting, leaderboards, avatars, and real-time feedback.
Looking for a soulmate with a shared dream of making surveys more engaging and fun. Someone who sees games as essential and applicable to every aspect of modern life. Someone daring and uninhibited, willing to experiment a little, not afraid to try out some new techniques. Would be very interested in a person into investigating the effects of getting respondents into 'hot states'.
Hope our meeting will lead to us both being better listeners and much more perceptive. In no time we will be extracting insights into things up until now we never thought possible. We will be inundated with people who want to hang out with us for free, who will spend hours on end telling us what they think about things.
