For survey geeks.

The Community Based Tourism Institute of Thailand has asked several people at Andaman Discoveries to fill out a survey on … something. 12 pages later and I’m still not sure what any question actually meant.


This thing seems designed to induce satisficing, just try and figure out these instructions:


It’s about certification…?


Apparently it isn’t just a bad translation. Uzma, my Thai flatmate, told me the instructions are equally opaque in Thai.

See if you can decipher this Likert scale.




Note my confused indecision on the first question. I soon decided to just go with the middle box on everything.
