I would like, for the purposes of a research paper, to pose the following and gather as many answers as possible.

Please try and be honest. Of course, I understand that for some this is simply impossible.

Two Questions.

In Game: Do you live primarily in Hi Sec or lo/null?

IRL: At an intersection, as a pedestrian facing the "Do Not Walk" symbol, clearly seeing no traffic approaching, do you wait for "permission" in the form of the "Walk" symbol before proceeding to cross?

My stated hypothesis is that there is a general correlation.

Thanks!

First Edit:

So far, in general, the hypothesis holds. Human behaviour may indeed be as predictable as Hari Seldon said it could...........in general, of course.

High Sec

Depends on WHICH city I'm in. Anywhere in Texas.....wait (they WILL fine you).

San Francisco, walk when clear.

1. Hi-Sec (unfortunately)
2. I walk when it pleases me. There shall be no light bulb stopping me! Pirate

(I doubt you'll find a significant correlation there, but good luck!)

interesting methodology^^


(1) Null-sec
(2) never cross red lights - even if it means that other people (who do) have to wait for me

maybe you should distinguish between sov 0.0 and npc 0.0/low-sec? after all everybody knows players in sov 0.0 are unable to think/act autonomously.

1) I move around
2)a) short answer, don't wait
b) Long answer, even if traffic's comming I judge the distance and speed of the vehical and estmate it against the time it'd take me to cross the road, if the car would hit me, I tend not to walk.

Well, I like living in 0.0 but I rarely do it. I just play too casually these days to be with a 0.0 corp (no time). So I stay in hi sec with my +5s and spin ships. When I'll start playing more actively again, I will change that though.

go to CVA space, get on their good side and it's a very non-comital 0.0 lifestyle.

But when they get told to cross the street, that intersection is crammed with pedestrians for the next 15 or so minutes.
