### Logic Poll

Here is a poll where your answer and the answers of everyone else will affect the correct answer. After a short time, I will release the results

Neat. I’d really like to see graphs of the answers over time.

### Re: Logic Poll

Looks neat. Question: one of the questions asks "What % of people...". Do you want an answer in the form of "x%" or just "x" (e.g. if I think the correct answer is 101%, should I write "101" or "101%" in the box)?

You should write it as x (Without the percent sign)

Also, If anyone else has any other ideas for questions, I'll add them. I'll post results about once every 50 times.
It's interesting since having everyone knowing the answers won't make it any easier.

Spoiler:
So what you're saying is, 7/50 answers were correct. Therefore 14% was the correct answer. Therefore 0% was the correct answer. Therefore 8% was the correct answer. Therefore 4% was the correct answer. Hurrah, equilibrium has been reached!

That was fun!

### Re: Logic Poll

"What % of answers to this question will be correct? (Round to the nearest percent)" is a strange question. Who defines that "correct" means "gets that amount of answers"?

-> "What % of answers to this question will be the same as your input?"

Very nice idea.

### Re: Logic Poll

Well, I was correct on questions 2, 3 and 5. Question 4 is nearly impossible without an upper bound on the integers, and would quickly become trivial with such a bound. I was so close to getting Question 1 right, though. Maybe in another 50 answers I'll have it...

I'm still pretty happy with my score of 3/5. Can anyone beat that?

I got 1, 2 and 5 right. Possibly 3 as well, can't remember what I put but it was around the 2-4% mark I think.

The second question is now very easily answered. As such, it will be removed.
The third question, as said by mfb, is slightly confusing. It will be replaced with "What % of answers to this question will be the same as your input?"
The fourth question will be removed. By nature, only one person can be correct.
The fifth question, like the 2nd question is very easily answered. It will be replaced with "Most people think the answer to this is FALSE."

"Consider integers from 1 to 10, What number will be 1 more than the most picked number? (If it's 10, it will loop to 1)"
"How many times was your answer chosen? (i.e. 42 people chose the number 42)"

### Re: Logic Poll

I don't think "How many times was your answer chosen? (i.e. 42 people chose the number 42)" should be included because it depends heavily on how many times the quiz has been taken. All the other ideas are very cool.
