a. Obeying the law and being safe from being hit by a car don't reflect the same psychological motivation.

You really didn't bother to read the question, *OR*, you have the comprehension skills of a ESOL student, *OR* you are just a troll looking to spout pseudo intellectual garp in order to be impressed by seeing your writing in public post.

I'll bank on the latter.

1. Highsec
2. It depends on the circumstance. I have no objection to crossing against the signal, but will wait if I have no reason to be in a hurry.

1: High-sec.
2: No waiting. Even given approaching traffic I cross, if I judge there's enough time.

And it's rare I go to the lights, if the traffic isn't heavy.

Woo! CSM XI!

0.0 exclusively.

If I see no traffic at all, I don't even look at the lights. They're there to stop cars during busy hours to give pedestrians a chance to cross, standing there and staring at them when you can clearly cross freely is just stupid.

What the hell kind of research is that?

It's not rocket science.

Find out if they live in null/low/hisec.

Ask a series of questions dealing what you think are components of the 'desire-for-safety' variable you seek.

Take these variables and find a reliable subset using Scale Reliability analysis (Chronbach's Alpha)

Place everyone on this scale and crosstab against the null/low/hisec question.

For the love of Pete...haphazard 'research' annoys me :)

I find this link completely appropriate. The mods on the other hand may not Twisted

In game I live wherever I am at the time. Currently logged off in low sec.

Reside in the US.

I cross when I feel that it is safe for me to cross or whenever I feel that my existance would better be served by crossing.

Also, I have been stopped for j-walking in D.C. with my father Lol

So far, in general, the thesis is proving true.

People who are bound by rules/duty/conformance tend to gather in low-risk, high-security

while

People who can think for themselves and make decisions based on available data without the need to be overseen tend to gather in the higher-risk, low-security areas.

There are always exceptions, but the GENERAL trend is as I surmised.

I'll take the whole mess one step further and assert that those so like minded also share common overt political beliefs.

The short short;

Some need to be taken care of

Some don't.

At the end of the day, those who need to be taken care of become a burden upon those who don't, often to the point of resentment.

Full extrapolation;

This is how societies get slaughtered.

Follow the logic. It is plain as day.

Hi-Sec carebears are food and fodder because they lack the intelligence to be otherwise, regardless of how haughty and pseudo intellectual they may position themselves.

CCP has indeed done their homework.

Hey! If you are young and haven't selected a career yet (in real life)...

Consider being a political pollster. Especially consider being one for the Republican Party.

You have the 'aptitude' for it.

This.

After reading your flawed conclusion, you have only bolstered my belief that the field of psychology is one of smoke, mirrors, and quackery. Your confirmation bias glares brightly, and your limited conclusion based on what could only be considered a personal question guarantees you the result you want to hear. Expand your questionaire to include reasoning and personal mannerisms and you might get an more accurate analysis. Unfortunately, it may not tell you what you want to hear.

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?

mostly. this winter when it got cold i decided to not stay and wait if road is empty for 100-200 meters around.

1. low sec (can't get into high sec and Null is for people who wait for the green "walk" light).
2. I don't need no stinking light to tell me when to walk, I'm not from 0.0, I'll walk when I want.

So your research is trying to show a correlation between rl behaviour and in-game behviour? Very interesting, I'll find it surprising if people act in a similiar fashion in both "worlds."

IRL: I do take quite a lot of risks. I'll cross the road when it's not on a green light, but only if I can see that it's clear first (of course.) I wouldn't really consider it taking a risk, I'd consider it using my own judgement over the decision of an automated process. Crossing the road isn't a good example of risk-taking - expand it to a more general question. E.g. I take drugs & like to party in real life but always within my pre-determined sense of "reasonable." It's got me into a bit of trouble a few times but when the risk/consequences begin to outweigh the "fun" then I always stop - this applies to almost all aspects of my life.

In EVE: Low sec. I take risks fairly often but mostly only when I can afford the loss. It's just a game, when it comes to it I'd rather have fun than do autonomous tasks (there's enough of that IRL) so sometimes I just take stupid risks regardless of consequences.

So I suppose in my point of view there is no correlation between my IRL behaviour and EVE behaviour. IRL I'm relatively sensible & hardworking. In EVE I don't really care - I hate missioning or ANY grinding.

Good luck with your research - make sure you post the results.
