    Post Psychology study of sleep and gaming

    I'm a graduate student in psychology, and I'm conducting an experiment regarding sleep patterns and video/computer gaming. It would be a great help if you could fill out this short questionnaire (takes about 10 mins) on the subject.

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't care how great it would be, it's not happening. You're just a right-wing newspaper researcher in disguise. Your results will be inserted in to an article about how video games have been responsible for every single crime since around 43 b.c.

    It is amazing how many 'Uni students' come to the site with surveys.

    Well a 1000 people could all say one thing, one person says another and if that one person says what the Journo wanted to here that would be the result of the study. But more than likely they just make it all up.

    All the time. If you want actual specific cases of it I can probably dig some out since studying the disgusting practices of the British press - the worst in the civilized world - is something of a hobby of mine.

    But yeah, they base their stuff on real actual surveys all the time. They take everything out of context and twist it to suit their agenda, but it IS based on real actual surveys.
