Are we supposed to see different results when this poll is applied to different culture?

Take any range of values, and a population will tend to favour the 3rd quarter.

Try it, put 4 pieces of paper down, 4 cards, 4 cups whatever - the 3rd will be the one most chosen.

I read something about this once. This tends to be mostly true of western cultures where Christianity has dominated. Apparently, there is still a strong cultural memory of the importance of the "trilogy". Although I can't remember if I read this in an actual study or just someone suggesting that as a possible link for apparent preference of the number 3.

I thought that maybe this poll was an exception. But then I realized that all of Neowin subconsciously melded together in order to make sure that the number 3 was the 3rd most popular!

Coincidence? I think not... :ninja:

Yes, it because as a general rule people like to stay away from extremes. On a 1-10 scale, those would be 1, 5, and 10. This theory is more apparent in surveys using Likert scaling.
