Guessing opinions does not equal facts. Lame quiz.

CPT Ethanolic: Guessing opinions does not equal facts. Lame quiz.


You can make some educated guesses, but yeah, it's still a quiz on whether you know peoples (mostly foreign people's) opinions on the US.
 
2012-12-01 09:20:02 AM  
I only got 50%. The rest of you countries need more sensible opinions!

The fact that certain people hold a particular opinion is, in fact, a fact.
 
2012-12-01 09:28:27 AM  
5 out of 10. I'm really disappointed in my knowledge. A few I just guessed.
 
2012-12-01 09:51:42 AM  
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, their opinion, man.
 
2012-12-01 10:15:14 AM  
3/10
But, I've never been able to travel.

A poll is not really a fact. It is a survey with a margin of error. So if there are two results with a similar percentage, the poll could be wrong in rating one over the other.

Some seemed too obvious. 5/10

"Some Guy"

You failed even at that part :(
 
2012-12-01 11:24:48 AM  
5 out of 10. Those weren't very good questions. How am I supposed to know about opinion polls in Poland.

I got half. I expected drone strikes to have popular support in Western Europe, if only because they like Obama.
 
2012-12-01 12:18:29 PM  
4/10. I'd feel bad, but I don't make it a point to study opinion polls of the US.
 
2012-12-01 12:59:07 PM  
7/10, but yeah, that was a really freaking stupid quiz. It was just a quiz on 'do you masturbate over every single number Pew puts out and and memorize it?!?!'

Don't feel sad, subbette. It's a Pew Research quiz on your knowledge of popular opinion that means absolutely jack squat about your "global IQ," a phrase that in and of itself means absolutely jack squat.
 
2012-12-01 02:16:21 PM  
5/10, I sucks at knowing in what ways people hate America.
 
2012-12-01 02:18:48 PM  
You answered 6 out of 10 correctly (60%)

I don't think so, I think it's one of those 'ironic' handles.
 
2012-12-01 03:07:43 PM  
7/10. I figured Mexico liked American pop-culture more, I thought the world admired US pop culture, and i thought Obama's confidence level had declined most in Egypt.
 
2012-12-01 03:22:29 PM  
4/10

Could've gotten a couple more if I had gone with my first guess, but there were just guesses anyway, so....

So, lying is second nature to you?

Klippoklondike: You answered 6 out of 10 correctly (60%)


Did they really have to tell us the percent correct when there are 10 questions?
 
2012-12-01 03:28:46 PM  
I got me a big ol' 40%. Woohoo!
 
2012-12-01 03:35:34 PM  
6/10, which makes sense, since most of the questions I could narrow down to two answers, but was guessing beyond that.

DarwiOdrade: Did they really have to tell us the percent correct when there are 10 questions?


The main audience the Pew groups seem to be interested in are the US public.
 
2012-12-01 04:09:46 PM  
Got 50%. Guessed on all of em. Silly quiz is silly.
 
2012-12-01 04:11:19 PM  

Klippoklondike: You answered 6 out of 10 correctly (60%)


Same here. I'll have to brush up on my current affairs.
 
2012-12-01 04:47:14 PM  
7/10...and I get nearly all my news from Fark.
 
2012-12-01 04:50:33 PM  
6. Pew needs to make another quiz and quit.
 
2012-12-01 04:50:37 PM  
7 out of 10, mostly just logical guessing.
 
2012-12-01 04:52:12 PM  
If an answer can be "Pakistan", take it. You're guaranteed to get at least 2 right.

/Got 3. Quite an interesting quiz, must have entirely ignored talking to the Canadian government, since I'm pretty sure that our government supports the Drone strikes...
 
2012-12-01 04:57:27 PM  
5/10. Got the important ones, missed the pop culture duo. I also figured at least five allies would support drone attacks, but apparently Israel and GB weren't in that survey.

I thought the question was about popular support for drone strikes, not government approval.
 
2012-12-01 05:05:13 PM  
Since the Pew group is somewhere between Communism and NAMBLA on the Socio-Political scale....no surprise I did not do so well
 
2012-12-01 05:05:33 PM  
THAT WAS THE NICEST QUIZ PRESENTATION I HAVE EVER SEEN

no scrolling, no page reloads, etc.

I guess it wasn't a gimmick to show ads.
 
2012-12-01 05:05:51 PM  
I got 2 right. Two of my wrongs were especially frustrating because I KNEW the answer, but thought it couldn't be the right answer. Self-doubt sucks sometimes.
 
2012-12-01 05:09:08 PM  
5/10

Echoing sentiments of others -- less about facts you read in the news, more about global opinions gathered by a polling group.
 
2012-12-01 05:11:32 PM

5/10. Educated guesses. Poor test.
 
2012-12-01 05:19:03 PM  
5/10. A little disappointing. I didn't know how much Italians liked us, how little Pakistanis like Obama, how much Spain likes our pop culture, that France likes Obama more than Greece (I'd think Greece would like his anti-austerity positions) or that China has been more disappointed by Obama than Egypt.
