I've never been asked my opinion on anything.
Just as well - I probably would refuse to answer.

Surprising. Seems like every time I go to one they are throwing the receipt at me and telling me to call some number or go online to do the customer satisfaction survey and then thanking me and saying "have a good night!" as I stare at them and ask if I'm going to get my food.

Oh, on the receipt - OK, yes, yes - I do remember seing some of those. Dunkin Donut I recall promising a free donut if I did. Never took the bait though.

I worked at Zogby International (polling and survey company) for 10 years and loved it. It was truly interesting to find where people's thoughts were on political issues and major news interests. It's been rare when I'd get a call at home for those types of interviews, though - I take part in them whenever they're available.

Thanks for taking part in this, Starz - it's always been good to get your points of view :)

Most of the time I'll participate with companies known to me when the general theme seems interesting. I won't do marketing surveys, though.

Thanks for taking part in this one, though - I always look forward to your point of view ;)

By no means regularly but on occasion if I have the time when it is offered.

I used to get calls at home that were genuinely interesting but the few public opinion surveys I've responded to have been rare the last 3 years.

Thanks for giving your input, by the way - nice of you to take the time ;)

No never. I always get e mails from my bank asking how was their service on my visit. Really? I shouldn't have gone into the bank in the first place.

I've partaken in phone surveys in the past. Cannot remember now what they were for. I did them when the caller was pleasant. But haven't been called in a very, very long time.
I guess I am out of the loop. I get dizzy, anyway:]

Some of the polls and surveys that I've done were so interesting that I was disappointed when the end came - I wanted more :)

I wonder if poll and survey firms have decided to get most of their responses via websites instead of the phone since few people have published numbers. I haven't had those calls in a very long time, either

Lol... I've been dizzy and ditzy my whole life :P

Thanks for your time and comment, Carla - I couldn't have had nicer company ;)

Every once in a while, when I answer an unknown number call. They've usually been political issue sorts of polls, which I've also taken part in via email, when it's a legislator sending it.

I've done the same :) I've never been the most political-savvy person, but I've tried to maintain a certain amount of legislation awareness. High praise for you by keeping abreast of certain legislation you'd find important.

Thanks for taking part in this miniature survey :) I've always appreciated your willingness to contribute to some of my posts - it's been very nice of you to do that :D

Back when I had a landline, I got those calls all the time...I used to have fun with them, but eventually they must have blacklisted me industry-wide for messing with them. 😂

I also occasionally answer polls when slumming other areas of the net, as well.

I used to do political polls and public opinion surveys for Zogby International for 10 years; toward the last few years I noticed a decline in the work I was getting through the call center. All I could think of was more of the respondents were submitting their views on web polls and not so much via phone - just a guess.

Naaahh, blacklist you? You're the embodiment of what pollsters are begging for, pinky-swear :D

Thanks for being here, doing what you do best - you're always a welcome plus ;D

No, I'm pretty sure I was blacklisted. They'd say something like "On a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the least and 5 being the greatest, how would you rate ___." For some reason they would never accept my response of "3-1/2". (biggrin)

We used to get Quinnipiac calls until they kept asking for the person with the next birthday. One of us only had a window of about 6 weeks and the other was the rest of the year. When I pointed that out to them they quit calling. I see their results on TV a lot but I know it really isn't a fair poll.
I mostly avoid polls so it is a rarity if I do answer them.

Aah, okay :) The polls and surveys that I've responded to have been very interesting, educational, and fun, some to the point I didn't want them to end :D Over the last three years or so, I haven't had one call come in that was of interest to me so mine's been a rarity as well.

Thanks for taking part in this loose version of a survey - I appreciate your input, truly :D

Once in a while. The thing is, I never get asked about a place that had ** service. Now that would be fun, but that's probably why they still have ** service. :)
