(Al has given me the OK to post this here, so I am going to try for the third time to help out my friend, Professor Ryan Howell of San Francisco State University. Kudos to the very efficient monitors who are checking the site in his absence and taking down what they perceived to be SPAM. However, he has said it is OK for me to post this. Thank you. Please don't delete it again.) Hey Cubs fan brothers and sisters, something to do as we crawl towards the game with the Nats. My friend is a professor of psychology at San Francisco State University and he has started a research study to understand what factors (e.g., personality, emotions, and attitudes) may influence our preferences for certain consumer goods/services. It involves taking an online survey and lasts about 20 minutes or so. The study is anonymous. Even better, you can enter a drawing for one of 10 gift certificates at $25 each. The survey can be found here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=h7ZJTCcvsD2TsHzN_2bJyXeQ_3d_3d On behalf of my friend, thanks to everyone who chooses to participate.
