Last month another DLABSS participant won an Amazon gift card from our monthly raffle! As our second winner, we wanted to follow up with a few questions for Jason to learn what DLABSS' participants like him are thinking. Our questions and Jason’s answers are below.
How did you first hear about Harvard DLABSS, and why did you decide to participate for the first time?
“I first heard about Harvard DLABSS [through] Craigslist. I personally enjoy surveys that contribute to real life issues, as opposed to consumer products or something similar to that.”
Why did you continue to participate in experiments on DLABSS?
“What compels me to continue participating in DLABSS experiments is the variety of issues. Every time they send me an e-mail inviting me to take a survey its always a surprise as to what the subject matter will be. This gives me an opportunity to answer in a fresh state of mind and also learn something new internally and externally.”
What is one thing you learned from one of the experiments in which you participated?
“One thing I have learned is how our environment can influence our subconscious mind and contribute to preconceived notions and judgements.”
In your opinion, what is the best feature of DLABSS and/or its website?
“The automated e-mail system they use is very convenient. On average I receive one e-mail every two weeks, the surveys are for the most part very brief and user friendly.”
If you were talking to someone considering participating in DLABSS for the first time, how would you describe your overall experience?
“It’s a fun easy way to voice your opinions, and help Harvard students get their assignments completed. There's also a chance you could win a $50 gift card to Amazon, which I have won ; )”
