Hi /collab/!

With this survey, link lower, I plan to distinguish between true and made up stereotypes the society thinks about us, bronies. For many, we are just a bunch of horsefu**ers with unsolved child issues. I'm trying to prove them wrong.

I'm doing this research after seeing few links between results of the SCL-90 symptom checklist and membership in Brony subculture (just minor depressions, but still above average). I'm curious if this phenomenon repeats itselfs when applied to other groups and fandoms, so, although it's focused on bronies, I want furries, gamers, Otakus, /b/tards and pretty much everypony to fill it out.. Results, if interesting, will be published in traditional form of a picture containing graphs and tabels.

You can finish it in 15 minutes.

I filled it out. Hopefully I'm just an outlier though (I'm a very weird one haha)

Good luck on your survey!

I just filled it.

I think you might want to spell-check the questions, though. There are some spelling mistakes and awkward grammar in some parts.

Question: if I submit my email to "receive results", exactly what kind of information would I be receiving and when would I receive it? Is it something you will send manually or is it automated by the website?

I'm not native english speaker, I know my whole english fom the internet. But I will tak a look at it.

Results will be generated by machine, but I'll be sending it manually. I don't even have started to make the script. You receive your SCL-90 results. That can measure, in number, how bad is your depression, somatization, or whatever.

Beauty of this test is, you don't really need a psychologist to supervise. I think people tends to overreact and they put 4 points somewhere where they should put 3, or sometimes even 2. Thats why i need to manually see every test, to see if subject didn't overreact. You can tell from big differences between specific questions. (like "Idea there is something wrong with your mind" and questions like "Uncomfortable thoughts", or similar, should not be too much different.)

...Please don't take this the wrong way, but that's not a very good idea. Mental issues are a very delicate subject, and telling people either "no, no, no, see, you're more messed up than you think you are!" or "nah, you're fine, you're overreacting" is a terrible idea. You don't know what the people taking the survey are going through and what reactions and decisions might be triggered in them if they see results like that.

Not that people should rely on online tests over of a diagnosis by a professional psychologist in the first place, but you're pretty much saying that this is a reliable test for depression and/or other conditions.

That's a very dangerous position to take.

I'd have to agree to a certain extent. You can use those questions to measure self-deviation, but you shouldn't use those questions to normalize. It gets a little bit touchy because some people (myself included) are extremely touchy about language, and a question that could mean the same thing worded two different ways might be interpreted differently.

Though it's your test and you can run it how you choose, just some suggestions. Though I would try to stick away from prying (like the test asks, some people may have somatization problems and self-affirming biases which skew the data irregardless). If you start trying to modify data and normalize curves, you heavily risk introducing a lot of biases. (Though this isn't to say that it can't be done correctly, of course it can)

I'm not meaning to be mean or anything, I'm just giving my take on it, and giving suggestions (Please don't take what I'm saying negatively, I had a penchant towards misunderstandings with people and I really want to minimize this chance of misunderstandings)

I admit that's true. Normalization was actually idea of my friend with master's degree from psychology. I'll consult him about it.

By the way, I'm accepting every suggestion and complains. Like I was saying, I'm not a psychologist, it's just kinda like a hobby for me.

Filled it without leaving e-mail. Will the results be openly available?
>> No. 39361
>>39358

Don't worry, they will, you just don't recieve results of your SCL-90

Okay, first of all, this is definitely the wrong board for this.

Second of all, I'm extremely worried about what you may or may not be planning on doing with this information. This is extremely delicate information and I'd like to have this discussed over email.

I'm locking this thread. Talk it over with us before making another, right now you do not have permission to do something like this. If I see this thread again and you have not gotten permission, I will have to consider it a bannable offense.
