  1. I laughed at all the contradictions. Take this bit:
    How would you rate the average friendliness of other players?
    Most people rated that question around the 5 mark.

    For the next question:
    How would you rate your friendliness to other players?
    Most people rated it at around the 7 mark.

    If everyone’s being friendly to other players, why does everyone think other players are less friendly?

    Someone’s being hypocritical or overestimating their own friendliness while underestimating others’ friendliness.

    There were a few other examples like this but the friendliness one was the most telling.

    • Yep, the same thing happened with:

      self vs. other “skill” ratings

      and, self vs. other “disrespectful behavior” ratings

      I’m glad you found that interesting 🙂 You wouldn’t believe my amazement as I watched that trend develop. Though some participants may have thought Valve was monitoring the questionnaire, so that could have been a reason behind some responses. Who knows?
