A few days ago I noticed a comment on an online forum: “Prius owners are just like Mac owners.” As a Mac owner and Prius owner, I felt that this comment needlessly stereotyped me. Were they implying that there was something wrong with me? That I was superficial? That I thought I was better than other people? On the other hand, as a Mac owner and a Prius owner, wasn’t I confirming the stereotype?
Perhaps there is something to this stereotype, and Casual Friday may be just the time to find out. I’ve created a brief survey that asks you a few questions about your car, your computer, and your attitudes. If enough of you respond, perhaps we’ll be able to (non-scientifically) settle the question once and for all!
As usual, the survey is brief, with about 20 questions, which should take less than five minutes to answer. You’ll have until Thursday, September 25 to respond. There is no limit on the number of survey respondents. Don’t forget to come back next Friday to see the results!
