Are you always honest on surveys?

post #1 of 11

Does it matter if the survey is one that will give you a reward at the end (swagbucks or similar)?

I hate surveys and rarely, if ever, do them. I am tired of people selling information on me. So yeah, sometimes I lie especially on the income issue.

Yes, I'm always honest. I know with swagbucks that if I lied I'd get to do a lot more of them than I do currently. I'd too old to fit the demographic they're looking for most of the time. But I still won't lie just because I'm an honest to a fault person.

I don't lie on surveys. I would think the point of lying is to finish it faster, but it's faster for me to just tell the truth!

I guess I don't understand the point in lying on a survey. If you're going to take the time to do it you might as well do it truthfully. I would think coming up with a lie for different questions would be even more time consuming.

I don't see the point of lying. Surveys are annonymous so who really cares?

Sometimes a survey is only looking for certain participants and you can almost tell which answers will qualify you.  And these surveys usually have a reward at the end of them.  So I was just wondering if you would like just to qualify for the survey.

Again.....I don't. I do agree with you that lots of times on swagbucks I can tell the type of person they're looking for. Like they'll ask a question about how much do you drink or when are you going to buy a car, or do you have certain diseases,etc. And you know if you answer no, they're going to kick you out of the survey. I still don't lie. Honestly, most of the surveys are only worth less than a dollar any way for 20 minutes or so of my time. Not worth lying for $.60 to me.

I do agree.  I don't lie either.  And frankly, I have stopped doing most surveys because they aren't worth it.  I will do a satisfaction survey especially if I have had over the top service to commend or under-rated service to complain about.

Nope, not going to lie on a survey.

 

But then again, I don't do surveys.
