If you don't listen to/don't like metal, can you do me a huge favor?

I'm doing a report on stereotypes for my English class, and I decided to do stereotypes on heavy metal. We're supposed to write a report as well as do a survey. I've got the report down, but I just realized only one person has done my survey (I posted it on Facebook). I need at least 10 people to do the survey. It needs to be by people who don't listen to or dislike metal, because someone who actually likes it would be biased while filling out the survey, and I'd like to get an outsiders look on it, so to speak. If you could take a minute to fill it out, I'd greatly appreciate it .

Thanks

You should really specify about what kind of vocals you're talking about on the 9th question. Not all of it is screaming and whatnot, as a lot of the 80s/90s metal vocals had more of an angry sound and less screaming if any.

Instead of asking for people to only click through and answer if they don't like metal, you should have included it as the opening question.

Why?

Because people that identify as metal fans are going to answer anyway, skewing your results.

Should've included a question of "Are you a fan of metal music?" just so you could dismiss those surveys.

I would say this isn't the greatest survey in the world. Some questions could have been better worded and thought out. I wouldn't give you a good grade if this was solely down to the survey.

Like it's been said, you should have had a question asking if people like metal AND not asked metal fans not to do it. They would have just said 'yes' to the first question and you could dismiss their results straight away and I doubt any of them would know they weren't needed.

Question 1 and 4 as well as 3 and 10 seem to be the same questions but reworded.


Also, I didn't do the survey as I am a huge metal fan. I'm not one of the douchebags looking to screw the results. I was just curious as to what the questions where.
When I was eleven I broke the patio window and my mother sued me... She's always been a very aggressive litigator.

I selected the first answer for each question because it's funnier that way.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Or alternatively, one could contrast the answers of metal fans with the types of question asked, to determine whether those questions relate to liking metal or not.

For example, the question "Is metal singing skillful?" (or something like it) may not be at all related to whether one likes metal.

Yeah, I could have done better. It's how my English teacher told us to do it, and she said mine was good, so it's not really a big deal.
#17
A lot of those questions were pretty stupid


I don't really listen to metal anymore anyways

I swear, it's like people on UG try to think of the worst / most useless things to write about for open ended essays. It's like they stay up all night crafting the perfect shitty topic to do.

You don't want people to do it if they like metal because they would be biased, but if people don't like metal then they'll likely be just as biased but from the other direction.

not a great survey but w/e
I don't listen to much metal because its often boring or silly sounding and the vocals are usually ridiculous (and not in a way that I like).

I demand you make a proper survey. You can't go through life half-assing everything.

Do it right.
#24
What's up with all the satanism? The answers are skewed to make anyone seem like a metal fan...or paranoid.

You say you don't want people who don't listen to metal to answer... I can only assume that you like metal so the answer options to the questions in the survey are skewed in favour of your opinion.

A metal fan that created a survey targeted to people who don't listen to metal; something's not right here!

You should really find another group of people to do your survey. We all know that the Pit is filled with 12 year old metalheadz.

I want my survey to be non-biased, so only people who don't like metal please!

What a shit survey. Those answers are really leading.


And you seem to assume throughout that metal vocals are screaming/shouting, even whilst asking questions about metal vocal stereotypes. I didn't really understand what to do when asked about "metal vocals", seeing as you can have so many different types of vocals in metal...

EDIT: I should probably mention, I do hate metal, I just think these questions are shit.

I started to do the survey but it's terrible so I stopped. Also, people who dislike metal are going to be as biased as fans, just in the opposite direction. You should be taking a random sample.
