Polling Thread - Personality Specialpost by Gunnar_Zarncke · 2014-11-05T22:40:29.878Z · LW · GW · Legacy · 18 comments
Another installment of the Polling Thread.
This is a special installment: It's about getting feedback about you!
It has been said Don't Be Afraid of Asking Personally Important Questions of Less Wrong. And there is a Curiosity checklist: Looking for feedback. We are in a Tell Culture. So why not learn something about yourself? For some people it is easy to sense how they are perceived. For some it is difficult. Even if you get feedback it is (luckily!) more often positive - but this sometimes leaves out murky key points. Giving constructive personal feedback is difficult. Lets try it.
By focussing this thread on personal feedback I want to prime you and the other participants on giving and receiving constructive personal feedback.
Do not assume that Crocker's Rules apply by default. If you want to operate under Crockers rules you should clearly indicate thus.
The following rules (from Admonymous) should give a guideline on giving feedback:
I recommend to phrase your question in the form of a poll but you can just ask questions too.
I will start with a simple Big Five query below.
Even if you don't want to participate in personality discussion this is still your chance to ask your multiple choice question you always wanted to throw in. Get qualified numeric feedback to your comments. Post fun polls.
These are the rules:
- Each person or poll goes into its own top level comment and may be commented there.
- You must at least vote all polls that were posted earlier than you own. This ensures participation in all polls and also limits the total number of polls. You may of course vote without posting a poll.
- Your poll should include a 'don't know' option (to avoid conflict with 2). I don't know whether we need to add a troll catch option here but we will see.
This is a somewhat regular thread. If it is successful I may post again. Or you may. In that case do the following :
- Use "Polling Thread" in the title.
- Copy the rules.
- Add the tag "poll".
- Link to this Thread or a previous Thread.
- Create a top-level comment saying 'Discussion of this thread goes here; all other top-level comments should be polls or similar'
- Add a second top-level comment with an initial poll to start participation.
Comments sorted by top scores.
