I'm using MicroPoll.com to take this poll. I'm not keeping any info, and I cannot speak for Micropoll or what anyone else (NSA cough cough) might be doing with the info. So please only answer what you're comfortable answering.

Also, I don't want to derail the conversation Menty started (here: http://www.mclarenlife.com/forums/mclaren-lounge/2965-new-member-occupation.html), so please direct all comments there, and we'll just have the poll info here. Hopefully that will work. (If anyone knows how to embed javascript into the forums directly, would appreciate help so we dont have to jump to the links to take the polls.) Let's see if this works and sorry if this train wrecks...

So here are the Poll Questions (each one should take just one click to answer):

1) What's your educational background?

Hi All:

FYI, I added a results link to make it easier to peek at the results so far. Kinda interesting.

John, Q3 has two options for "Law" - maybe one could be changed to "Ambulance Chasers". I will leave it to you to find a positive description of lawyers for the other one, I ran out of ideas :p.

PS - be sure to include my vote in the other one.

Sorry about that DXB. I suck. Unfortunately I won't fix it, because I think if I change it, it will reset all the statistics. But we can basically add the two percentages together to get the total there. My bad.

Prelim Survey Results

So it seems like responses have tapered off on the poll, so I thought i'd try to summarize the results here.

So what do these unscientific and statistically insignificant polling results tell us about ourselves?

It seems like the "average" McLaren owner is a self-made man running his own business. He's from North America and college educated with a bachelor degree in science/math/tech. He's more diversified in where he now makes his living, but most likely to be working in tech or perhaps medicine/finance/manufacturing. And he's most likely worth around $7.5M.

It's a pretty interesting background, and it seems like it does attract a certain tech element.

Aye podpi.. My bad. This is what happens when you set things up too quickly. I apologize.

I thin k it may be fun to do this (but without mistakes on my part) again in 6 months to see how things are progressing.

UPDATE: I added in Africa and the Middle East without disturbing the stats. Feel free to add to the survey.

podpi, I was able to add Middle East and Africa to the survey without messing up the data. So at least that part of the survey is fixed.

Haha- I find it quite funny that you forgot Africa! Reminds me of one of those "The world according to Americans" pics!

Awesome, that made my day! Shouldn't Texas be denominated as its own country though? :D
