Hey guys,

Thanks so much to everyone that has already participated. The survey is still open so if you haven't had a chance to participate yet there is still time. Your help will go a long way to further the research into the link between mental imagery and slot machine gambling and would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again guys!

I did my best for you. I'm a vulture/hustler, so you'll probably see a few answers that will be counter-intuitive...lol

I also didn't understand a few questions, such as:

Quote:

"When you typically imagine yourself gambling and you hold the image in your mind, what type of emotion is the image?"



How can an image be an emotion? I just went right in the middle with that because that question has no meaning to me.

I also don't tend to imagine myself gambling...I'm either gambling at a given time or I am not.

It also asks this:

Quote:

Whilst watching the video, when you imagined yourself gambling, from what perspective did you view this image?



How am I supposed to imagine myself gambling while watching the video? I thought I was supposed to be watching the video. If you want me to be imagining myself gambling, then tell me to imagine myself gambling!

The 1-100 scales also need lower options than 1 to indicate something is conceivable, but extremely unlikely. 1 seems like 1%, but in my mind, technically a better answer than 0.

Thanks so much for participating Mission146.

That particular question is asking about emotion attached to the image. Research has indicated that it is rare that we imagined an image in our mind without attaching an emotional state and meaning. It it also interesting that you don't imagine yourself gambling as mental imagery has been show to increase urge to gamble.

Again thanks for taking the time to participate I appreciate it!

You're welcome, I hope my answers don't mess up the data set.

I don't think I would have imagined myself gambling while watching the video in any set of circumstances, but I was mainly trying to pay attention because I expected to be asked specific questions about the video. (Two women, one man, parlor as opposed to a casino, nobody was smoking, about twelve machines in that room, door opening on the right which was to the right of the women and the left of the man on the opposite side who was as interested in talking on his phone as gambling...four or five of the machines were progressives...cream colored walls) that sort of stuff.

Anyway, I'm sorry, I didn't understand what the video was supposed to make me do so my answers probably suck.

Did you see those minors over $700? Must be a exchange rate thing.
